On Monday, we asked for readers to send in their questions for Volume 19 of the DL Q&A Sessions. We have gathered our favorites, then let our team have at them.
Questions seems to be quite focused on Motorola and the general state of the hardware/software game for Android. If you were curious for our honest opinions on the Lenovorola deal or which spirit animal our Android device’s would be, then read on. (more…)
Despite the fact that Tiny Wings (to Tim’s dismay) hasn’t made it over to Android, we still have no shortage of quality games for some downtime. We come across way too many to feature them all, but some of them bait us and keep us playing — think Flappy Bird.
The games below are on this list for a variety of reasons, ranging from sweet graphics to addictive storylines, but all are definitely worth a look. Here are the best Android games of February 2014 in the eyes of DL. (more…)
Because of the exponential growth of Android over its first few years, apps have been flowing in at a non-stop rate that makes finding the best of them near-impossible at times. Thankfully, our jobs are to find the best for you and share them as they are released. Over the last month, we have covered dozens of apps, but only a few make our list of must-installs.
So here are the five best apps from the month of February. (more…)
Two members of the DL crew were live from Samsung’s satellite Unpacked event today, where the company unveiled the Galaxy S5 smartphone. The device looks quite similar to the Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, and we would say that the Galaxy S5 is a pretty good marriage of the two devices. (more…)
Looking for the full spec list of the new Samsung Galaxy S5? Here you go.
We are looking at a 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 5.1-inch FHD Super AMOLED display, 2GB RAM, 16MP camera, 2800mAh battery, LTE, Android 4.4.2, and both fingerprint and heart rate sensors. Pretty cool stuff. (more…)
The livestream of Samsung’s Unpacked event is about to kick off and the company just made the announcement of the Galaxy S5. Yep, it’s official.
The device is coming as early as April to all the carriers you would have hoped for: Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, US Cellular, and MetroPCS.
You are looking at a device in 4 colors (blue, black, white, and gold) with a 5.1-inch FHD Super AMOLED display, 2.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, 16MP camera, Android 4.4.2, and both fingerprint and heart rate sensors.
Full specs here.
We are still looking through all of the goodness, but the full press release can be found below for now. (more…)
Customization is a huge part of Android, and part of that starts right on your home screen. A lot of us use many tools to achieve home screen perfection, including UCCW and Zooper Widget. We’ve gone over the best UCCW widgets in our Icons and UCCW series, so we thought we may as well start to show you our picks for the best of Zooper.
Here are five good options for February. (more…)
At CES 2014, we struggled to find interesting mobile-related stories outside of wearables because, well, there just weren’t any. Unless you consider Sony’s Xperia Z1 Compact, which is the Japanese electronics manufacturer’s take on a smaller phone, just not one that necessarily falls into the “mini” category. With the Z1 Compact, you are looking at high-end specs packed into a phone that is much smaller than other flagships of today. And I say “flagship,” because it certainly stands up to other flagships, outside of its 720p display.
I picked one up last week even though it currently is only available overseas because as I just mentioned, it was one of the only interesting products to come out of CES. The thought of a high-end smart phone in a small package is something I find incredibly appealing, probably because it reminds me a bit of the thought process behind the Moto X. We also wanted to get ahead of this device, as Sony is almost guaranteed to release it in the U.S. six months from now. (more…)
