How to remove photo location info on the Samsung Galaxy S6

2
Samsung Galaxy S6 gallery info

Samsung makes it easy to remove (or add) geotagging on the Galaxy S6. Here's how.

Having location information attached to pictures you take with your phone can be a lot of fun. Any number of applications and services can organize your shots by location, or create albums and slideshows from various events you've been to.

But location information also brings about privacy concerns. Maybe you don't want the world to be able to see where your house is. Where your children live. Or where you just installed that new 60-inch television. That's where EXIF data — also know as metadata — comes in. It's a little bit of information that's embedded in the pictures you take. It can tell you the model of camera you're using. The time and date. Information about the aperture and ISO of the shot you took. And, of course, location data.

And Samsung makes easy it toggle geotagging — as well as making it easy to scrub some of this from your images that you've taken already. Here's what's up.

S Voice on the Galaxy S6 vs. Moto Voice on the 2014 Moto X

S Voice vs Moto Voice

Voice commands aren't a new phenomenon on Android, but as manufacturers bolt on new features things start to get interesting.

While every Android phone offers Google Now for voice commands, Samsung and Motorola offer something extra. Moto Voice extends Google Now voice commands to every part of the phone, even when the screen isn't on, and allows users to issue an impressive array of additional commands. S Voice, on the other hand, largely replaces Google Now with its own set of tools for answering questions and acting as a virtual assistant.

Both solutions require you to have specific hardware in order to enjoy the experiences offered, and both services are arguable better than standalone Google Now for voice commands, but which offering has the accuracy and feature set that allows the service to stand out in the crowd?

Marvel Future Fight is the mobile superhero game you've been waiting for

27

Avengers: Age of Ultron opens tomorrow in the US. It has been three long years since we've seen Marvel's squad of superheroes team up against a common foe, and fans are hyped! What better way get even more hyped before the film (or keep the hype going after it ends) than a game featuring not only all of the Avengers, but also loads more Marvel characters all teaming up to save the world?

Today Netmarble released just such a game on mobile: Marvel Future Fight. The game lets players collect and build up a team of good and bad guys from the Marvel movies and comics and then put them to work stopping an interdimensional threat. Most excitingly, Marvel Future Fight actually looks and plays really well – it's practically a successor to the Marvel Ultimate Alliance series.

HTC One M9 can now take pictures in RAW format

33

HTC has updated its camera app in Google Play with a new and long-awaited feature — the ability to shoot pictures in the RAW format.

Much has been said about HTC's camera in the M9, but it ultimately comes down to this: It can take some really good pictures, if you're patient and don't mind getting out of Auto mode and shooting more manually. And today M9 mobile photogs have gotten a pretty big boost to their phones with the addition of support for the RAW format, which gives you far more control over the editing of a shot (while getting rid of the compression that comes along with JPGs).

It's just a simple update of the HTC Camera app in Google Play, and from there you'll choose "Raw camera" in the modes screen.
