Android photography

Lighting is the most important part of any good photograph. Getting it right makes all the difference.

Anytime you see a discussion about photography, or read a set of tips and tricks for better pictures, you'll find talk about the lighting. It's the most important factor in the picture-taking process, and unlike settings and sliders to adjust your exposure, oftentimes we have no control over it.

LG G Flex 2 versus LG G3

23
LG G3 versus G Flex 2

It's time to pit LG's latest curvy handset against its 2014 flagship.

The LG G3 was one of our favorite Android devices of 2014, bringing a super-sharp Quad HD display resolution and a 5.5-inch screen size packed into a surprisingly hand-friendly smartphone. Even a year on, it's a decent buy.

However the G3 has competition from a more recent LG phone. Even though the LG G Flex 2 isn't usurping its predecessor's position as LG's flagship phone, it's a natural rival for buyers looking to pick up a high-end phone — particularly those inclined to choose an LG device. These are two phones with many contrasting features, and we'll break them all down in our G Flex 2 versus G3 comparison.

Is fragility a concern with the Galaxy S6 edge?

82
Galaxy S6 Edge

Dropping any phone is generally speaking a bad plan, but there are some obvious concerns regarding the durability of the Galaxy S6 edge.

As cool as Samsung's new dual-curved screen looks on the Galaxy S6 edge, there are more than a few people concerned about using the phone in the real world. Our forums are filled with folks wondering how cases are going to work for the phone, and whether or not this new design can survive a fall.

These are valid concerns, as traditional case designs are either not going to offer total protection for this device or they will make swiping in from the edges less convenient. Since one of the big benefits to this phone is the software that takes advantage of this display, those sorts of cases aren't likely to be warmly received. Besides, not everyone wants a case, especially when the phone in question looks as nice as the Galaxy S6 edge, so it's clear these are questions that need answering.

How to Auto Backup images and movies to Google+

17

The memories you capture with your smartphone don't have to disappear when something bad happens.

There are many photo backup services available to Android users today. Almost all of these services rely on offering a small amount of storage in a cloud backup somewhere, and when you take a photo or record a video that data is sent off to be stored until you need it. While each of these services offer something special, everyone with an Android phone and a Google account already has one of these services ready to go on their device. It's a part of the Photos app, which is actually a part of Google+. Auto-backup is simple, fast, and has several important settings that help ensure the service is something everyone can use if they choose.

The best part? All it takes is a single toggle to activate the service.
