We have seen several leaks over the past few days hinting at the hardware specs of the LG G3 along with the expected release date. But this latest leak shows off the alleged retail packaging of the device, revealing quite a bit about the upcoming flagship. The box packaging supposedly belongs to a gold variant of the handset, indicating that the LG G3 won’t just have standard white/black color combinations.

Google has now brought the stock camera app known as Google Camera to the Play Store, making it easier to bring updates and add new features whenever necessary. This is a policy first introduced by Motorola with a few of its core Moto X and Moto G apps and was subsequently followed by HTC as well. As of now, this camera app is only compatible with Android 4.4 running devices, so you won’t have any luck if you’re carrying an older device. Nexus devices are already running the app by default, but re-downloading the app will...

A few months ago, Spring launched their Framily plans, which give customers a discount when you add more lines. Now Aio Wireless (which is owned by AT&T) is offering a deal that is much simpler and a lot cheaper. Sprint’s Framily plans work by giving customers $5 off per line added to the plan, with a cap at $30 off. Aio’s Group Save is a lot simpler and gives you much higher discounts.  Their plans also cut the entire bill down, not just single lines on them: 1 line added: $0 off 2 lines added: $10 off 3 lines added:...

Google must have sold a lot of Glass models for this to happen. Just a day after the Google Glass Explorer Program was opened up to the public, Google has shut it down for almost everyone.

You had to apply for Glass and hope you got lucky or had a friend that already owned it. Now Google will only take your invitations, but will not give you any information on when you might get accepted into the program. That’s...

If you’ve bought a Nexus 5, you’ve either done it because of its pure stock Android experience it  or the amazing value it offers for its price, or both. But if you’re somehow bored of seeing stock Android every time you unlock your phone and are willing to do a little bit of hackery, then a port of the Sense 6 ROM from the HTC One M8 might be something that could do the trick for you. Well, to be fair, the port is more of a proof of a concept at this point, with many important things not working, but it’s...

Lately,  I’ve been fascinated with all the new Smart TV models that the various major manufacturers have been releasing. This is basically a TV set that can connect to the Internet allowing it to access various online services. This means that you will be able to update your social media network, watch online streaming videos, install apps, and even communicate with your friends by video calls. While I really want to get a Smart TV its price range is still way out of my budget. Another reason why I haven’t bought one yet is that...

The Samsung Gear Fit smartwatch is known for its curved AMOLED display which has won critical acclaim across the board. But did you ever wonder what the battery inside the smartwatch looked like?
