The market for cheap, unlocked smartphones in the US is starting to grow considerably, and with that growth comes more and more competition in the sub-$200 space. While Huawei is well-known abroad for its affordable handsets, the Chinese OEM hasn't really made a big push with them here in America previously. A new listing on Amazon suggests that's about to change.
While "Expo" appears in the product name for the listing, the name "SnapTo" is used in all the marketing promo images on the page, so we're pretty sure SnapTo will be the retail name of the device.
So maybe the Galaxy S6 doesn't strike your fancy because of the non-removable battery or lack of a microSD card slot. No problem—you can pick up an unlocked Galaxy Note 4 right now on eBay for a relative pittance of $470.
Back in December, Instagram made available some new filters for the first time since the app's arrival on Android. These new tools brought even more creative freedom (I know, that's a matter of opinion - just go with it, OK?) to the app, and most hardcore IG users surely appreciated the new options.
Today, update 6.19.0 is rolling out to Google Play, and it brings a couple of other new tools to the platform: Color and Fade.
VPNs are for those of you who really want to maintain online privacy, as it can prevent your ISP and others from keeping tabs on your activity and confuse others seeking authorized access to your network. They're also great for getting access to services that aren't available in your country or signing into blocked social networks.
Feature-rich subscriptions don't come cheap, but on StackSocial you can currently get four years of ibVPN for a mere $59.
Adobe Acrobat has been around since the 90s, and its PDF format went on to become the standard way of exchanging documents over the web. Eventually Adobe made the file type open source and competitors began to bring their own innovations to the table, but the company's software remains the most widely adopted way to interact with PDFs.
We more or less knew that LG's April 28th event was going to be for the G4, but now the Korean OEM has come out and said it. The G4 will be revealed in just a few short weeks, but that's almost all we know.
LG's Android UI started off as a bad copy of TouchWiz back in the Gingerbread days, but more recently it's evolved into its own thing. That thing is not always good, but it's not horrendous either. LG has just posted a video preview of the LG UX 4.0, which will probably be used on the G4, and you can suffer through it watch it below.
Before you ask, yes, this article is basically just another excuse for me to use Android Police's favorite device abbreviation, LGGP83GPE. (That's the short-lived Google Play Edition of the LG G Pad 8.3, from way back in 2013.) According to at least one Twitter user and, hey, my own tablet, the LGGP83GPE is getting its Android 5.1 update right about now.
