On Wednesday night, the crew united as they always do (sans Tato), to bring the world Episode 52 of The Droid Life Show. In this episode, the topics covered include all of the crazy leaks we have seen surrounding the HTC One (2014), the rumors and specs posted for the LG-made Nexus smartwatch from Google, AT&T’s lighting up of LTE-A here in the US, and the possibility of Google bringing its own set-top box to the living room.
It was quite the eventful show indeed. (more…)
We know you can only find Touchless Control on the Moto X, but the always-listening feature isn’t a Motorola exclusive. As a proof-of-concept, the developer behind Focal (the ex-CM camera app), showed off the Nexus 5 with an always-listening feature running in the background. (more…)
Samsung managed to keep the Galaxy S5 out of public view until the press got a hold of the 2014 flagship and mistakenly outed it less than 24 hours before its official unveiling. HTC on the other hand, still hasn’t officially announced the “All New HTC One” (One 2014), yet we have seen the device in a 12-minute video and more images than we even know what to do with at this point. HTC sucks at controlling leaks.
In today’s set of leaks, we not only get a new video of the phone in action, but also in a series of photos that shows off its exterior trimmings and how it compares in size to the HTC One Max. (more…)
This afternoon, HTC continued their translation of technical details for features from last year’s HTC One while also teasing the “All New HTC One” for a third time. The spot is as painful to watch as the previous two, but this time focuses on the UltraPixel camera from the original One. After diving through its ability to take shots in low-light situations, the on-screen duo goes into how the “All New HTC One” “has added” a…Well, we don’t know because everything is blurred out after that part.

We are still about a month away from the initial launch of the Samsung Galaxy S5, so Samsung is taking every opportunity to provide you with more detail about not only their new flagship, but its wearable friends too, the Gear Fit and Gear 2. Through two new videos posted to their YouTube channel this weekend, Samsung has given us 15 minutes of combined “official” hands-on time with each. The videos aren’t as detailed as we’ll get with our full reviews, but they do offer you a solid overview of some of the new features of each. (more…)
Earlier today, Samsung announced a new streaming music service called Milk Music. All lactation jokes aside, the service turned out to be something all Galaxy owners should probably take a look at. It’s free. There is no registration or setup. And you can be listening to its over 200 genres (stations) and 13 million songs in a matter of seconds upon first launch. Of course, you have to have a Galaxy device to access it legitimately, but that shouldn’t be a problem since there are millions upon millions of you out there. (more…)
I’m mostly speechless after watching this new ad for the LG G Flex, but in a fantastic way. It is so completely, 100%, can’t-be-argued, brilliant on a number of levels.
Talking bearded hands that can be fed cheesecake while attacking you with a crab claw? That awkward moment where you take your sexual conversation over garlic too far, resulting in a kitchen counter hump session? “Wolverine, like a BAAWSS.”
Yes to all of it. Do more of this LG, do more.
Last week, Motorola held a 30 minute event in Barcelona at MWC, where three Moto executives sat down and answered questions about the company’s future, success, and acquisition by Lenovo. The event was not streamed for the masses, so we know there are plenty of people who have no idea what exactly the execs talked about. (more…)
