Digital NFC tattoo turns your body into a passcode to quickly unlock Moto X

50

If you're the type that foregoes passcodes on your phone in favor of the convenience of quickly turning on the device and getting to what you need to do, then the digital tattoo created for the Moto X will help to combine convenience and security. This way, you can still lock your phone, but thanks to the NFC coils within the digital tattoo, you can tap your Moto X against the tattoo and your phone will unlock faster than you can utter "open sesame."

HTC moves Sense Input keyboard onto Google Play

28

Like other parts of HTC Sense 6, the HTC Sense Input keyboard has made its way to Google Play. That means that HTC can now push updates to the keyboard with ease and not have to lean on a full system update just to tweak the keyboard — and that updated can go out to all supporting devices instead of waiting for each device update to be completed and then waiting again for carrier approval.

Hands-on with the AT&T LG G3

LG G3

All the LG G3 you love, with plenty of AT&T piled on for flavor

All of us here at the AC office are pretty much in love with the LG G3. We're not even going to try and deny it, nor should we. This is a damn good phone. It was good when Alex first reviewed it (and that is a must-read) and I was happy when Phil shipped me the AT&T version to have a long hard look at. I've been looking long and looking hard for about a week now, and it's time to put some words on some paper. Or a screen. You know what I mean.

European LG G3 gets first firmware update

6

The European LG G3 — the LG-D855 if you want to get technical — has today received its first over-the-air update, landing on firmware version 10e. Unlocked G3s in the UK and parts of Asia, where the D855 is also sold, seem to be first with this update; other countries and carrier variants likely to get the update in the days and weeks ahead. It's not entirely clear what's new in v10e, but the update dialog refers to app updates or "power optimizations" depending on region. In any case, it's still based upon Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and our Euro G3 doesn't seem to have changed too much after applying this latest update.
