Rumored specs for the handset include a display of 5 inches or larger plus a Snapdragon 800 or Snapdragon 805 processor running the show. The flagship device is also said to employ a twin-sensor rear Ultrapixel camera. These sensors should bring better focus, depth of field and overall image quality.
Insult isn't always added to injury. Sometimes, it's just added to insult.
Please, for a few moments, put yourself in the mind and body of Victoria Brodsky. She's a mom who was attached to her Samsung Galaxy S3, until she wasn't.
It was allegedly pilfered from her at a street fair. Well, she lives in Brooklyn, so, you know, things happen there. Things other than whining, that is.As the New York Daily News has it, Brodsky, a mom of two, had decided to put the loss of her phone down to the slings and arrows … Read more

Here's what we do with our hands these days: We poke, we stroke, we wipe, we swipe.
But we don't actually write, do we? Not, you know, by hand and pen.
Who does that? Why bother? Every message you could ever think of sending is typeable, printable and, one imagines, emojible.
Yet one strange man believes that children need to be taught the art of handwriting. Could it be that he believes there might one day again be an Age of Romance?
He's created the iTrace app for iPad and iPhone, perhaps the first step in getting a great job in the future. Yes, just like the one Joaquin Phoenix has in "Her." (Do see it. He writes letters by hand. Sort of.)… Read more

A microscopic windmill could one day provide a portable method of charging devices. The tiny machines, just 1.8 millimeters at their widest point (10 can fit on a single grain of rice), can harvest energy from the movement of air.
They are the work of University of Texas, Arlington, research associate Smitha Rao and electrical engineering professor J.-C. Chiao. The pair envisions smartphone cases embedded with hundreds of windmills that could charge the phones therein when waved through the air or held by an open window on a windy day. … Read more
A handful of smartphones discovered on benchmark site HTML5Test suggests that LG could soon debut a new round of devices. Although the scores reveal little about each particular model, all were found to be running Android 4.4 KitKat.
While there aren't many smartphones running the latest version of Android today, things should certainly change in the coming weeks. The annual Mobile World Congress takes place next month and LG has traditionally used the conference to debut multiple products. Given the newly discovered model numbers (LG-D830, LS740, LG-D410, LG-D320, LG-MS323), I expect to hear plenty of noise from LG'… Read more

A newly published European patent application from Samsung details a method for controlling a smartphone through what basically amounts to head tracking with a front-facing camera. And while there's no indication in the document or from Samsung itself when or where we might first see this tech put in place (many innovations get patented but never become publicly available), intomobile points out that the application was filed in July, not too long after the release of the Galaxy S4, so it could be part of an R&D iteration cycle in preparation for creating a successor.… Read more
