[Weekend Poll] How Much Do You Expect To Pay For Your Next Smartphone?

The cost of smartphones on average, it's no secret, has generally been tumbling around the world in the last couple of years. With many OEMs scrambling to cram specification sheets at lower and lower prices, competition in the low end of the smartphone segment is hotter than ever.

This isn't always how it was, though - nor how it necessarily is in every country. Here in the good old US of A, for example, good cheap smartphones still remain a relative rarity aside from Motorola's Moto G and Moto E.

[Updated] Verizon Galaxy Note 3 OTA Update Brings The Phone To Android 4.4.4, Improves Data, Voice Quality, And Bluetooth

Update, January 11th, 2015: Verizon has issued another update alert for the Galaxy Note 4.4.4. This one also updates the phone to 4.4.4 and includes the same changelog, but for some reason the build number is changed to N900VVRUDNK1. Whether or not there was a problem with the original rollout, we can't say, but it appears to be continuing.

LEGO's Ultra Agents Adventure Game Gets A Sequel Called 'Antimatter' - Still Free With No IAP

Ultra Agents isn't one of LEGO's better-known series - the Marvel and DC superheroes and other licensed sets like the LEGO Movie collection get more love. But as a natural extension of some of the more original building toys from the 80s and 90s, it's a nice change that lets the designers stretch their creativity a bit. LEGO brought Ultra Agents to Android last summer, and now they've brought the sequel as well.

BootUnlocker App Adds OnePlus One Compatibility In 1.6.1 Update

Using an unlocked bootloader on your phone or tablet is not safe. Don't do it. Unless you want root permissions, or the ability to backup and restore your software via a custom recovery, or you want to use a ROM that didn't come with your machine. These things don't make an unlocked Android device any safer, but they are pretty good justifications for unlocking your bootloader. If you'd like to have all that unlocked cake and metaphorically eat it too, the BootUnlocker app is your friend.

Mizuu Returns To The Play Store After Being Pulled By Google For Something It Could Have Just Asked Nicely About

It seems like we can't go a day without hearing about how the Play Store review process is broken and annoying. Earlier this week the media management app Mizuu was removed (again) without warning. Google sent a cryptic email like it usually does, but now the developer has all the details. Turns out Google just wanted to make sure the app was properly licensed to display movie data.

Motorola Connect Update Adds Watchface Customization Shortcut To Android Wear App

The Motorola Connect app isn't required to get use out of your Moto 360, but it is if you want to customize any of those watchfaces that come pre-installed on the device. The latest update doesn't remove that restriction, but it does allow you to hop straight to the tweaking stage from the Android Wear app directly. Take a look.

As you can see in the shots above, an entry titled "Settings" has appeared in the menu between "Set on watch" and "Hide on watch."

Clicking this option shoots you out to the same customization page you would go to by navigating through Motorola Connect directly, so it does little more than give you a choice in how you get there.

Chrome Beta v40 Has New Zoom Behavior That Makes Fixed Headers Scrollable, Less Aggravating

While it might be hard to understand this latest change to Google Chrome at first, you will be very happy once you grasp it. On mobile, websites that have fixed elements - that is, headers or other content that stays in the same place on your screen regardless of which part of the page you are on - can be very annoying. This is especially true when you zoom in, because you often can no longer see the entire element.

AccuWeather Updated With Android Wear Support

A new version of AccuWeather is rolling out, and it brings with it full Android Wear support. I say "full" because this isn't just a slightly more informative card that pops up on the watch, but an app that you can open to get weather information.

Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition Officially Leaves The Play Store

Over the course of 2014, we watched as the majority of the Google Play Edition devices disappeared from the Play Store. Former options such as the HTC One M7, Xperia Z Ultra, the Moto G, and the LG G Pad 8.3 (forever known in our hearts as the LGGP83GPE) have all vanished. Now the Galaxy S4, after being out of stock for a long time, has gone away as well.
