52

Samsung's next-generation Note device, the Galaxy Note 4, is heavily rumored to be offered in two variants — a standard variant of a device like the one that was leaked earlier today, and a version with a three-sided curved display. While information on either version is scarce, Samsung recently filed a trademark for the Galaxy Note Edge, which may turn out to be what the device with the three-sided display is called.

Acer announces Tegra K1-powered Chromebook 13

Acer Chromebook 13

A new entry into the ARM Chromebook market that has plenty of potential

Acer is expanding on its Chromebook lineup today with a new ARM-powered option that's the first Chromebook to make use of NVIDIA's Tegra K1 processor. The Acer Chromebook 13 is the second Chromebook from the manufacturer, but is distinctly different from the popular Intel-powered C720 model released last year.

As the name would suggest this is a 13-inch laptop, and though it isn't equipped with a touchscreen it does offer solid specs at a good price. The Chromebook 13 will come in three different models. A base model will be equipped with a 1366 x 768 display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage for $279. Next level is a 1920 x 1080 display, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage for $299. The top-end model has a 1920 x 1080 display, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage for $379. White is the only color option here, regardless of spec choices.

Is this the Samsung Galaxy Note 4?

Leaked images provide clear look at what is claimed to be the next Galaxy Note

How's this for a Monday morning, then? GSMArena has obtained some pretty clear images of what they're claiming is the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4. As ever with leaks we'll hedge it a little, but from what we see here it looks extremely likely that this is the real deal. The form factor resembles that of the – still unreleased – Galaxy Alpha seen in its own leaks, and there's a very definite S Pen.

We just had to break out the original format for our Apps of the Week post. We missed it. Don't worry — we're still going to focus on best of categories and sort out the great new content as it hits Google Play, but not sharing our personal picks each week didn't feel right.

So you'll find our list of apps we love and think you should try each week on Sundays. Starting right now.

Kyocera Brigadier hands-on, first impressions and sapphire screen test

70
Kyocera Brigadier

A rugged phone with a near-indestructible screen that doesn't compromise on performance and usability

Kyocera is probably best known for making "those rugged phones" for just about every carrier out there, but the just-announced Brigadier on Verizon has a few things special about it. The headline feature here is the all-new Sapphire Shield display, which the Brigadier uses instead of a traditional glass-covered display to provide drastically higher screen durability. It makes a traditionally-rugged Kyocera phone even more indestructible, all without compromising features like visibility or touchscreen sensitivity.

But a synthetic sapphire-coated display isn't the only worthwhile feature of the Kyocera Brigadier — this phone actually has much higher specs than your average mid-range phone from the manufacturer. It all adds up to a great combination for those who need a phone that can basically go anywhere and look no worse for the wear. Read along for our first impressions of the Kyocera Brigadier and a torture test of its Sapphire Shield display.

Android help

It's time to spill the deepest, darkest secret we have here at Android Central. It's one that folks get close to figuring out but for some reason have a hard time understanding with any real clarity. But it's simple. And I almost hesitate to share it in fear that others will emulate it. Are you ready? Here it comes.

We're here to help.

When you get down to it, it's that simple. Before we do any post — be it the nerdiest of the nerdy or something ridiculously simple — we ask ourselves (or we should ask ourselves), "Will this help a reader?"
