Samsung Galaxy S5 Alpha leak narrows the bezels and brings on the metal

The Samsung Galaxy Alpha — or S5 Prime, if you will — has shown up in several leaked images, giving us a better look at what could be a mid-generation refresh of the flagship. The Galaxy Alpha, as it's called in the latest leak, looks like a Galaxy S5 but with less-rounded edges (reminiscent of the Galaxy Note 3), small bezels and purportedly has a metal chassis rather than plastic.

The HTC One Mini 2 is coming to Verizon, but on Big Red it'll be known as the HTC One Remix. Long-rumored and often leaked, the One Remix brings the things that we liked about the HTC One Mini 2 to Verizon's network, and at a relatively reasonable price. The phone will be available starting on Thursday, July 24th for $99.99 with a two-year contract.

All the LG G3 you love, with plenty of AT&T piled on for flavor

All of us here at the AC office are pretty much in love with the LG G3. We're not even going to try and deny it, nor should we. This is a damn good phone. It was good when Alex first reviewed it (and that is a must-read) and I was happy when Phil shipped me the AT&T version to have a long hard look at. I've been looking long and looking hard for about a week now, and it's time to put some words on some paper. Or a screen. You know what I mean.

LG G3

The European LG G3 — the LG-D855 if you want to get technical — has today received its first over-the-air update, landing on firmware version 10e. Unlocked G3s in the UK and parts of Asia, where the D855 is also sold, seem to be first with this update; other countries and carrier variants likely to get the update in the days and weeks ahead. It's not entirely clear what's new in v10e, but the update dialog refers to app updates or "power optimizations" depending on region. In any case, it's still based upon Android 4.4.2 KitKat, and our Euro G3 doesn't seem to have changed too much after applying this latest update.
