LG Lucid Updated To Software Version VS840ZV9, Gets Security Patches And Enhancements To Verizon-Specific Apps

When the LG Lucid first hit store shelves, it was one of the best mid-range handsets available at the time. It served as a shining example that a budget phone didn't have to feel like it was a budget phone. Now an OTA update is rolling out to the handset over a year after its release, further evidence that not all budget phones are destined for neglect. This new software version doesn't fundamentally change things, but it's nice to have security patches and a newer version of Google Map Services, among other things.

Download: Card-Enabled Gmail For Android v4.6 [APK]

Google started rolling out a nifty update to Gmail with the Card UI earlier today, but since the update is staged, it may take a while to get to a device near you. Not to worry - we've gotten a hold of the APK (thanks, Kevin!) and verified it's indeed legitimate. You can find it below on several mirrors. As always, just download and install - simple as that.

Sprint Moto X Is Next On The Update List – Fixes For Camera, Calling, Touchless Control, And More Incoming

The T-Mobile Moto X got it's surprise update the other day with a couple nice fixes and enhancements, and now it's Sprint's turn to get the update. It's rolling out in stages, so mashing the update button won't do any good. Not that anyone's stopping you from trying.

Motorola-Moto-X

The software, with the easy to remember version number 13.9.0Q2.X-116-MX-17-57-1, appears to have the same changelog we got with the T-mobile update, but here it is again anyway:

  • Camera – Improved Photo Quality: Improved capture of natural light (auto-white balance) and color accuracy for more precise exposure in outdoor and backlit scenes.

Samsung Will Introduce A Smartphone With A Curved Display In South Korea This October

Manufacturers are continuously pushing out improvements to their latest products, but many of the new selling points require a minor in mathematics to keep up with. Should you get the phone that's four times faster than last year's offering, or merely two? Is a 1080p display really necessary on a 5-inch screen? Well, Samsung's planning to roll out an innovation that even non-enthusiasts will be able to pick up on. The electronics giant will launch a phone with a curved display in South Korea sometime next month, and we can reasonably expect them price it lower than their $9,000 curved OLED TVs.

Gmail Update 4.6 Coming Today, Brings New Cards UI To Conversations

Cards, cards everywhere, but not a drop to drink. Or something like that.

That seems to be Google's mantra these days, as everything is getting card-ified. Not to say that's a bad thing, because cards are clean, simple, and effective. All three of those things have been a clear goal in Android in the Duarte era, so it makes sense that cards have been so widely adopted.

Today, it's Gmail's turn.

[New App] RealPlayer Cloud Lets You Upload Your Video Library And Stream To Any Device, Comes With 2GB Of Free Storage

There's a certain comfort in keeping your video library privately tucked away on local storage. Few things are as personal as that video of grandma's surprise 60th birthday party, that time your little league team won its first game, and the day you got married (or the night that followed). There's also those couple dozen movies that you may or may not have ripped off DVDs that you may or may not own.

Give Sony points for creativity if nothing else: the QX series is unlike any gadget you've seen before.

The DSC-QX10 is $248 in both black and white, but the QX100 is marked as releasing on October 15th, and shows as "out of stock" from one of the other resellers.

Pebble Smart Watch Coming To AT&T On September 27th For $150

One of Kickstarter's greatest success stories is coming to AT&T in just a few days. AT&T has announced it will be the exclusive carrier partner for the Pebble smart watch, which should provide a nice budget-friendly alternative to the upcoming Galaxy Gear.

This won't be an exclusive version of the Pebble for AT&T. It's the same device you can get from Best Buy, but AT&T is offering you the opportunity to get one when you pick up a phone.

[New Game] Dead On Arrival 2 Launches Everywhere, Unleashes The Zombie Horde A Few Days Behind Schedule

N3V Games dropped Dead on Arrival 2 in the Play Store last week, but they made the game exclusively available in their native Australia and neighbor New Zealand. They announced that they would roll the game out globally on September 23rd, and while it may now be two days later, we can't blame them for giving their peeps a few extra days of exclusive playtime. Still, that time's up, so everyone else can now pick up their trusty firearm of choice.

Samsung, We Need To Talk: Golden Galaxy S4 Teased On Arabian Twitter And Facebook Accounts

Back in the days of the original Galaxy S and the Galaxy Tab 10.1, Samsung was frequently accused of copying Apple at every turn (often by Apple themselves). And let's not kid ourselves, Android fans: back then, Samsung kinda had it coming. Over the last three years Sammy has been forging its own identity with unique hardware designs, massive software development, and enough money to make King Midas feel insecure. So why are they still pining after Apple like a love-struck college freshman stalking the starting quarterback?
