Let's Take A Look At All Of The Galaxy S6 Teasers Samsung Has Published Thus Far

Samsung loves hype, and it's that time of year for a flagship launch. We don't always report on teasers, because they so often don't give us much information. Still, we can put the many teasers for Samsung's upcoming Galaxy S6 together and get something worthwhile out of it.

Camera

Samsung has given several signals that they are going to be very proud of the camera in the S6. A leak from several months ago suggested the shooter on the back of the S6 would be either 16MP or 20MP, they weren't sure.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Super Subtle: Swipe Once To Close The Quick Settings Panel And Unlock Your Device From The Lockscreen

In case you haven't noticed, we love tiny details that make our everyday lives as Android users better. (And really, in case you didn't notice that, I'll show you the door — it's that X button next to the tab title up there in your browser.) Our friendly Android 5.1 tipster Ramit Suri loves them too, so much in fact that he noticed a teeny tiny detail on the lockscreen.

In Android 5.0, if you open the Quick Settings panel (henceforth referred to as QS) from the lockscreen, you would have to swipe the QS closed, then swipe again to unlock.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] Dynamic Quick Settings Tiles For Color Inversion And WiFi Hotspot Can Be Easily Hidden Again

When Lollipop 5.0 first launched, it brought with it an interesting set of dynamic Quick Settings toggles. Drop down your notification shade and you could see the usual culprits like WiFi and Bluetooth, but a few toggles were hidden unless they were triggered once, like WiFi Hotspot or Invert Colors. The problem, however, was that once these showed up, they were there to stay ... at least for one month if you never touched them again.

[Android 5.1 Feature Spotlight] You Can Now Swipe Up To Dismiss Heads Up Notifications Instead Of Getting Rid Of Them Permanently

This might be the best new Android 5.1 feature yet. Lollipop brought with it so-called heads up notifications, where the entire notification appears at the top of your screen momentarily when it first arrives. The problem was that you had only three options:

  • Wait until it goes away
  • Tap on it to open up the app notifying you
  • Swipe it away, making the notification disappear permanently

With this feature addition to Android 5.1, you can swipe up to get it out of your way without losing it entirely.

If you have ever been traveling and wanted to know where the best place to get gas is, you might know that this can be kind of difficult at times.

[APK Teardown] Slides Will Finally Bring Chromecast Support, All Drive Companions To Offer Printing Restrictions And An Easter Egg

To be honest, I never really expected to have anything to say about a teardown of the Drive companion apps, but here we are. Google uses Docs, Sheets, and Slides to give Android a mostly seamless editing experience for each of Drive's primary document types. They've gone through a steady set of improvements since launching in April and June of last year, either keeping pace or progressively catching up with the features offered by their web counterparts.

Netflix Lays Out A Vision For The Future In Which They Don't Have All The Content, Just The Best Content

In a document posted to their corporate website, Netflix sought to describe their long-term plans. The piece reads like a fascinating mixture of investor relations propaganda and fantasy or media theory. While it touches on all kinds of different aspects of their business and the changing environment it exists in, perhaps the most intriguing part has to do with how they are describing their ideal content catalog.

Google Is Prepping Major Changes To Wallet To Better Compete With Apple Pay, More Will Be Revealed At I/O In May

Wallet has to be pretty frustrating for Google. They beat Apple to the punch by quite a long time, but the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus basically introduced the lay public to mobile payments. How did this happen? Insert the tired cliches about Apple's control over hardware and software here. More interesting is what Google will do, considering how much they still have to gain by getting more adoption of their Apple Pay competitor.
