Don’t Miss These Android Stories: February 27, 2015

This Sunday, all of the hypebeasting comes to an end. Well, at least until LG is ready to unveil the G4. Samsung and HTC will take the stage on Sunday, finally pulling back the curtain on their 2015 flagships. There has been an enormous amount of leaks for the One M9 from HTC, as well as the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge from Samsung. It should be a pretty fun-filled Sunday.

To catch up on the best Android news of the past week, we have a collection of stories for you below.  (more…)

theScore Sports Gets a Subtle Material Design Update

TheScore Sports, our favorite sports app on Android, received an update today that introduced a bit of Material Design to devices running Android 5.0 “Lollipop.” The update also enhanced NHL match-up coverage, but really, this one is all about the pretty new exterior.

The app keeps its similar, dark color scheme, yet adds rippling touches and a new-school sliding navigation drawer (sans spinning arrow though). It seems a bit snappier to me as well, but that could be because of the smoother transitions. This isn’t a full Material makeover, but it looks much better than it did prior to the update.

The update is live now.

Deal Reminder: Neutron S at $25, Lets You Mount Your Phone or Tablet to Any Surface

Just a quick reminder that the Neutron S, a tablet and phone mount for almost any surface, is still available in the DL Deals shop for just $25.

With the Neutron S, you get a product that is machined from solid aerospace aluminum and contains a shielded permanent neodymium magnet “which never loses its hold.” From tablets to phones to your keys, you can really mount almost anything, as long as it is under 1lb. You could use it in your car to host your phone for navigation or on a wall to let you go hands-free in the kitchen.

The Neutron S “uses magnetic architecture to generate herculean grip while taking up minimal space,” but also has NFC built-in so that you can configure it to accomplish tasks as you mount a device (think turning on Bluetooth as you mount it in your car to connect to your stereo). The Neutron S attaches to objects using 3M VHB tape that is included with purchase.

More Reported Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Images Surface

As stated yesterday, I can’t wait for Samsung and HTC to unveil their 2015 flagships this Sunday on March 1, if only to stop the constant stream of leaks across the web. You can only look at so many leaked photos of a phone, am I right? Regardless of that notion, here are some more leaked photos!

This time, coming straight from CNET Korea, the Galaxy S6 Edge has been reportedly completely revealed, showing off its rounded display edges and protruding rear-facing camera.  (more…)
