Galaxy Note 4 with curved screen may turn out to be the 'Galaxy Note Edge'

53

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.

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

73
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.

220

A new rumor claims Verizon Wireless is about to close a loophole that some of its grandfathered unlimited customers have used to continue to get that plan, even though Verizon stopped offering such a service for its new subscribers a few years ago.

Android L - will my phone get the update?

300
Android L

Our predictions of which phones will see the next version of Android

Look at the phone in front of you. You probably love it, and chances are it's one of the most used items you own. It's OK to be a little attached to it, and it's a great idea to keep it as long as you can instead of spending money on each and every new thing that comes along.

We know that's not always easy. Soon, we're going to start hearing more and more about Android L, how great it does something, or how cool some new feature looks. You're going to want Android L on the phone in your hands. Not that you need it, and nothing that your phone does today will stop working just because there's a new version of Android. Still, as Android fans, we just gotta have it.

For some of us, that means a new phone. Still hanging on to that Galaxy S3? Yeah, you're upgrading or rooting and romming. For others, getting Android L is a given — the Nexus 5 and most of the Google Play devices will have it in short order after it rolls out sometime later this year. But for most of us, we get to speculate and talk about it a little bit.

Let's talk.

LG G3, two months on ...

213
LG G3

We update our thoughts on LG's 2014 flagship — the G3

The G3 is LG's biggest smartphone launch to date, launched at events around the world just over two months ago, and arriving shortly thereafter on major carriers around the world, including the big four in the U.S. As rivals focused on metal unbodies and waterproof credentials, LG differentiated itself with an enormous 5.5-inch QHD (Quad HD) display, an updated software design language and frickin' lasers on the back.

But it's time to go beyond the initial launch hype and reflect on how the LG G3 has held up in day-to-day use. All five AC editors have had the chance to use the G3 over the past couple of months, and we've brought our thoughts together into a definitive roundtable feature. Read on to find out what we think of the G3, two months on ...

Sony IFA event invite hints at upcoming devices

24

We've been seeing plenty of Sony leaks leading up to IFA 2014, and the recent invites they've shot out for their press conference at the show provide a glimpse at what new devices we can expect. The Sony Xperia Z3 is a pretty safe bet and its little cousin the Z3 Compact is a distinct possibility. A new QX100-style camera is clearly shown in the invite as well, and that top-right image could be a new tablet.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4: What we're expecting

Galaxy Note 3 design animation

It's almost time for a new Galaxy Note ...

We're just a few weeks out from IFA 2014, the annual consumer electronics show held in Berlin, Germany, each September. And for the past three years, the highlight of the week for Android fans has been Samsung's Galaxy Note devices — the line of half-phone, half-tablet hybrids with Wacom-enabled stylus input. The Note line has gone from a quirky sideshow in Samsung's Galaxy range to a series of handsets that's seen a surprising level of mainstream success.

This year, Samsung's Unpacked 2014 Part 2 invite leaves little to the imagination, telling us to "note the date" alongside a graphic that looks like the Note 3's Air Command menu. So we're pretty much guaranteed to see the Galaxy Note 4 in the next month, but what form is it likely to take? Let's dive in.

This LG G3 Beat video is the most tripped-out thing we've seen before breakfast in a long, long time

57

"This is the story of one reality in an infinite gamut of alternate possibilities." It's also the story of floating phones, slow-motion croissants, the girl next door, selfies in bed, GQ biker dude stealing, Field of Dreams, lasers, the morning after ... and a phone.

This is that full LG G3 Beat video from the other day in which the unannounced "LG G3 Stylus" was unceremoniously leaked. (Now without the super-leaky goodness at the end.) And we'll forgive you if you didn't actually watch the whole thing at the time.

But, wow. Just ... Just watch it.

Lenovo boards the QHD train with the Vibe Z2 Pro

41

Lenovo has unveiled its latest Android powered smartphone, the Vibe Z2 Pro, and it's the latest device to boast a pixel-packed QHD display. It's big, too. The Vibe Z2 Pro boasts a 6-inch 2560x1440 display, so you're certainly not going to be one-handing this sucker. Underneath it's pretty much the norm for current high end smartphones with a 2.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 CPU, 3GB of RAM and Android 4.4 KitKat.
