The LG G3 is currently the best Android smartphone you can get in terms of hardware on offer. However, the smartphone apparently has a striking flaw in its design which is leading to cracks near the microphone area. As seen on the image above, the crack is quite prominent and is seen by a large number of users across the world, so it’s not an isolated incident by any means. LG is believed to be offering replacements for affected units, although the company hasn’t clarified this yet. The crack is visible quite clearly on...

As we all know, the HTC Nexus 9 is the much awaited successor to last year’s Nexus 7 tablet. With precedence given to premium quality materials and hardware this time, this tablet has already made the rounds around the internet. And now, a new revelation made by @upleaks suggests that the tablet will break cover before the 9th of October. However, there are no specific details beyond this. The Nexus 9 is expected to feature an all aluminum unibody design with an 8.9 inch QHD display, the NVIDIA Tegra K1 SoC, an 8-megapixel camera...

Samsung’s Galaxy S5 is known for a lot of things, including the dimpled back and for the first time in the series, a water and dust resistant body. And given the worldwide phenomenon of celebrities taking the ice bucket challenge to raise awareness for ALS (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), it was only fitting for the smartphone to take the test. Samsung UK has uploaded a video showing this feat and the company has now nominated the iPhone 5s, the Nokia Lumia 930 and the HTC One M8 to take the Ice Bucket Challenge. While this was...

Thanks to what is considered a retirement gift from Evleaks, we have now managed to ascertain that the Verizon branded Moto X+1 will pack the unpopular Verizon Messages bloatware app. This is no surprise given the carrier’s history with pushing many of its own apps on smartphones over the years. Fortunately, it is said that the app will be removable by the user, so customers will not have to bear with it on their app drawer if they don’t want it there. In the past, we’ve seen that Verizon apps cannot be removed without...

We saw a pretty sweet deal on the 2013 Nexus 7 earlier this week where the tablet was being offered for just $102.99 with a couple of discounts combined. And today, we have another deal on the tablet, which doesn’t offer the same amount of savings as the earlier listing, but offers a great deal nonetheless. The 16GB model of the 2013 Nexus 7 tablet is being sold for $129.99 through woot.com. Unfortunately, the deal is only valid until the end of the day. Given the pricing, it is likely that the device might go out of stock...
