CyanogenMod 11 Nightlies Now Available For The International Galaxy S4 Active

The Galaxy S4 Active is pretty solid as both a high-end phone and a "ruggedized" handset, but as with a lot of Samsung devices, TouchWiz keeps some power users away from a purchase. Now the indefatigable CyanogenMod team is giving you some AOSP-style options: they just released their first nightly build for the S4 Active. You can pick it up for your phone at the usual spot and install it via the custom recovery of your choice.

This build was created specifically for the international LTE version of the device, the i9295. It was not made for AT&T's localized version of the phone - not that that's going to matter for most users, considering AT&T's addiction to locked bootloaders.

Leaked Photos Show Off The Galaxy A5, A Supposedly Metal-Like Phone With Mid-Range Specs

The Galaxy A5 appears to be an awkward phone to get excited about. SamMobile has gotten its hands on exclusive photos of the device, the SM-A500, which should be the first in a new line of A-branded phones. What makes this particular handset interesting are its build materials. SamMobile's source says that Samsung has used a different material that isn't plastic or metal but still "feels cold in the hand."

To me, this sounds like Samsung has had so much success producing faux leather backs that it's ready to try its hand at fake other materials. The extreme temperatures of metal devices sounds like the last part of the device I want emulated, so hopefully this material turns out better than cold not-plasticy plastic.

AT&T Announces Galaxy S4 OTA Update (I337UCUFNI1) Providing Connectivity Improvements And The Like

An over-the-air software update is set to hit AT&T's version of the Galaxy S4. The change log for this one isn't particularly long, but it will bump users up to baseband number KOTH49H.1337UCUFNB1. There's a certain satisfaction that comes from having the freshest set of software available on a device, and that feeling is what the bulk of owners will notice about this release.

As for what's actually new, AT&T says this update will provide better connectivity when making calls and text messaging. Considering that these pocket computers are still phones, it's a good thing this hasn't been forgotten.

On the list of changes we also see the obligatory security patch and updated Google apps.

Big Blue is only selling the tablets in charcoal gray, so if you were hoping for white, you're out of luck. As far as specs are concerned, both LTE models of the Galaxy Tab S are identical to their WiFi-only counterparts. You still find an octa-core Exynos 5 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a Super AMOLED display, a fingerprint scanner, and the more updated version of Touchwiz that debuted on the Galaxy S5.
