If you haven't done your taxes yet, time is running out.
April 15 is nearly upon us. While some of us may have done our taxes already and have our refund checks sitting in the bank, it's also easy to procrastinate. Doing your taxes bring back many unpleasant flashbacks of high school math homework and remind us that while every year we commit to set up a financial filing system to make this easy... we never quite do. Well, time's a-wastin' and there's plenty your Android devices can do to help, so charge 'em up and break out the bags of bunched-up receipts.
A year removed from the Galaxy S5's launch, more than a few people are asking about the upgrade to the GS6.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 is absolutely the hot new phone out right now. And while plenty of people are considering upgrading from whatever phone they have, the folks with a Galaxy S5 in their pocket are particularly intrigued. The GS6 isn't just an incremental update from the GS5, boasting better hardware, screen resolution and internal components along with new features. Most importantly for many, the GS6 has dramatically improved the camera experience as well.
But no matter the improvements in experience, it's not always a guarantee that the new version is worth the direct upgrade when most people have had the Galaxy S5 for less than a full year — let us help you make that decision.
The Lollipop update for the LG G3 on Verizon is available right now through the Verizon software upgrade tool on Windows computers, and the over-the-air update should follow shortly.
Verizon has updated the LG G3 support page with details about the Lollipop update for the device. When the website gets updated it usually signifies an over-the-air release of the update is coming. Some users have already been able to download and install it from the Verizon software upgrade tool, which unfortunately only works on Windows-based computers.
Sharp's 4K panel is set to enter mass production in 2016, and will likely make its way to flagships next year.
Now that QHD displays are here, manufacturers will undoubtedly be looking to offer screens that offer even more pixels per inch. Samsung has hinted at launching a handset with a 4K display in 2015, and now Sharp has unveiled its 5.5-inch IGZO 4K panel that offers a pixel density of 806ppi.
Other great web browsers for Android exist, but most people seem to love Chrome.
Last week we asked about web browsers. Specifically, which browser everyone was currently using. We were pretty sure the numbers would show that Google Chrome for Android has a pretty high following, but we didn't quite expect such a landslide.
It's Appday Sunday and that means we're back with more of our favorites to share. Every week we bring a handful of great apps to the table and share them with everyone. Sometimes they are new apps, sometimes old standards, but every time they are apps we love to use.
Give these a look and then take a minute to tell us all about the apps you are using and love so we can give them a try. We all find some of our favorites right in the comments on these posts!
Huawei has recently announced the SnapTo and we got to play with it for a few minutes at a media event in New York. The Huawei SnapTo is an unlocked LTE Android device with some decent specs for under $200. It supports LTE for T-Mobile, AT&T, along with smaller wireless service providers.
Want to see it in action? Check out our Huawei SnapTo hands-on video.
A phone can be awesome all on its own, but when you bring accessories to the party, it can reach new heights.
While users could certainly just buy a phone and have that be the end of it, if you want to help get the most out of your Moto X, there's a few accessories you should consider investing in beyond a simple case. And after our months with the Moto X, here are the accessories that we believe can take your Moto X experience to the next level.
Ah, the silly season. We've got a couple of the year's biggest phone releases under our belts. (That's the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the HTC One M9, in case you've been living under a rock.) And you pretty much couldn't have two more polarizing phones. One is an iteration of a couple solid designs from the last year, keeping the same look, feel and features. The other has significantly blown up its industrial design and ditched a couple of its major selling points — a removable battery and expandable storage.
If anything, you might think that would make your decision easier. But I don't blame you if you're both hemming and hawing.
Thanks to a slow trickle of info from LG — and a torrent of new details from a leaked microsite — we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from the company's biggest smartphone release of 2015 — the LG G4.
The LG G4 is almost upon us. The Korean company has been announcing some of its next flagship's headline features over the past week, and more recently a leaked (and only partially complete) microsite for the phone dropped even more info on us.
Between all the various details emerging online, the G4 is slowly starting to come into focus, and we've brought all the information you need to know — both official and unofficial — into this extensive preview. Join us after the break.
A collection of LG G4 images from the recent microsite leak
Thanks to the leaking in full of an apparent LG G4 Korean microsite we have a pretty good idea what to expect from LG's next flagship phone. As the leaked site likely won't stay online forever, we've collated just about all the leaked G4 images, and present them below for your perusal. Behold, our best look yet at what might be LG's leather-clad 2015 flagship...
And there she be, folks. The LG G4, as outed a wee bit early on a mostly official-looking microsite.
The LG G4 has been unveiled in drips and drabs by LG over the past week, but today it's been outed in full. Sort of. The listed specs appear to be a mix of what's already known confuddled with something that resembles the LG G3. So take things here with a bit of a grain of salt. (The pictures, however, look pretty good.)
Anyway. Here's the deal:
Mentioned is a 5.5-inch "Quantum" display, (which brings to mind the new tech LG's using on its 4K TVs announced at CES earlier this year). Note that [when LG announced its new mobile display tech on April 2](quantum jump in terms of key features), it only mentioned a "quantum jump" in color and other features. So that sort of lines up, maybe.
The phone's also reportedly sporting a rear 13-megapixel camera with f/1.8 lens — again, that aperture is already known — with dual flash, laser focus and optical image stabilization. But the total resolution is listed in this leak is in conflict with LG's own release, which lists 16 megapixels.
One spec listed that almost certainly has to be incorrect — which certainly makes you wonder how much else is a placeholder or simple made up — is the mention of the G4 running Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat and not Android 5.x Lollipop. So, again, we're really taking what's noted with a pretty big grain of salt at this point.
