Samsung Galaxy S5 Active for AT&T photo set leaks, looks more rugged and tank-like

19

We've seen the Samsung Galaxy S5 Active leak our a few times already, including a surprisingly lengthy hands-on video of the S5 Active in a dude's truck (how appropriate, huh?), so what's one more? We've seen the back of this phone before, but only in that video, so what we have now is a better look — a still photograph, if you will — of the front and back of the Galaxy S5 Active.

As with most Android phones, taking a screenshot on the LG G3 is simple enough, if you know the trick. There are a couple of ways to save the image on your screen for posterity, and they're both really easy, as for the most part LG's using the standard Android button configuration. Only thing is, the main physical keys are on the back of the phone, so you'll need to go about pressing them in a slightly different way.

And there's also a secondary way to grab a screenshot and annotate it, using the built-in QMemo+ application. Let's get stuck in after the break.

HTC reportedly working on One M8 'Plus' with QHD display, plastic-clad 'Advance' also rumored

43

Now that QHD displays are the norm for flagship smartphones, it only makes sense that more manufacturers start launching devices that offer 2K displays. According to 9to5Google, HTC is doing just that, and is set to offer a "Plus" variant of the One M8 that features a QHD screen. The Taiwanese manufacturer is also said to be working on an "Advance" model, which is a plastic-clad version of the One M8.

LG G3 camera samples and first impressions

114
LG G3 camera

Our first look at the photographic capabilities of LG's flagship G3 smartphone

With 24 hours of LG G3 usage under our belt, we've had just enough time to get to grips with the phone's camera — a 13-megapixel optically-stabilized shooter with a faster laser-powered autofocus. LG is one of the few manufacturers using OIS as a major point of differentiation, and with high-end smartphones increasingly competing on focus times, LG's updated AF system brings something new to the table. A fun aside — according to LG's head of smartphone planning, Dr. Ramchan Woo, the autofocus tech draws on LG's expertise in other areas, having been adapted from laser-based sensors in LG's robot vacuum cleaners.

Enough about lasers and robots for the moment, though. The G3's main camera is a 13-megapixel unit, the same size (and pixel size) as the G2, however LG tells us the sensor itself is more advanced than last year's model. What's more, the G3 has grown "OIS+," and the new stabilization system with a wider angle of compensation than its predecessor. Meanwhile the front-facing camera has been revamped, with larger pixels on its sensor, for better low-light performance.

LG confirms 2014 release for G Flex 2 and Vu 4

31

There's a successor to the LG G Flex and the LG Vu 3 coming down the pike for the second half of 2014. The LG G Flex was one of the more interesting devices of 2014. It, along with the Samsung Galaxy Round, was one of the first true curved screen smartphones released, and it lived up to its name by actually being flexible. If you were wondering where LG might go with the Flex line now that they've formally unveiled the LG G3, well, we don't know that. But we can tell you that it and an LG Vu 4 are coming later this year.
