LG G3 recent apps

Here's a quick, useful tip for anyone who's just picked up a shiny new LG G3 — it's actually possible to change the way recent applications are displayed in the task-switching menu. Most Android phones give you a single layout for your recent apps, but the G3's task-switcher has three different views to choose from, and it's easy to miss this option if you don't know how to find it.

LG G3 launches on AT&T, Sprint begins taking pre-orders

68
LG G3

Today is the official launch day of the LG G3 on AT&T, and buyers can now pick up LG's latest handset for $199.99 up front on a standard two-year plan, or for $24.17 per month through an 18-month AT&T Next deal. Alternatively an off-contract AT&T LG G3 will set you back $579.99. If you pick up an LG G Watch at the same time, AT&T will knock 50 percent off the price of the wearable.

Meanwhile Sprint has today begun taking LG G3 pre-orders, and like AT&T it'll charge you $199.99 on a two-year plan for the phone. Sprint also offers the G3 through Easy Pay for $25 per month, or upfront for $599.99. Sprint's G3 is expected to start making its way out to customers from July 18.
