If HTC's various members of the One family seem a little cold and lifeless to you, you'll appreciate the new Desire 820. This decidedly mid-range device uses a variety of color schemes on its polycarbonate shell, adding a bit of style to the company's standard unibody dual-speaker layout. The result is a look that blends the HTC One M8 and, oddly, the iPhone 5c. Check out those two-tone accents on some models.
Samsung's Galaxy Note 4 is here, and considering the company's absolutely dominant position in the "phablet" marketplace, it's likely to become one of the best-selling Android phones over the next year. That being the case, why not take a gander at Samsung's introductory video for its new flagship? The official introduction, or gadget porn if you will, is below.
As usual with Samsung's "trailers," the actual hardware isn't really the focus.
Some companies like to make a show of their appearances at big tech conferences like IFA. Some of them just like to announce everything all at once, and Lenovo is squarely in the latter category. The company's only Android addition in Berlin is the Tab S8, but thanks to an interesting collection of specs and price tag, it's worth your attention. The 8-inch tablet is a decent mid-range device on paper, but the interesting part is that Lenovo has set the suggested retail price at $199.
YouTube thrives off the videos produced by independent content creators all over the world, and while it compensates many of them through ads, that money is hardly enough to make a living off of in most cases. Earlier this summer Google said that producers would soon have the option to request donations right on their YouTube pages. The feature's live now, so here's a look at how it works.
When you're watching something produced by someone who's willing to accept donations, an icon will appear in the top left corner of the video.
YouTube has videos. Google+ has videos. In fact, Google+ uses the YouTube backend and interface for its videos. So it makes sense that you can seamlessly move uploaded videos between the two. Except that you can't, or at least you couldn't before the latest update to the web versions of both services. You'll need to "merge" your personal YouTube channel with Google+ to take advantage, which might be a sticking point for all those YouTube users that cried foul about the whole username thing a while back.
Time flies. Summer is almost over and the new school year is upon us. While you may have spent your last months indulging in our 5 entertainment and boredom-curing apps, it's time to fire up your neurons again and use the video medium for more than gushing and awing at the latest cute kitties. Whether you're going back to school, university, or you graduated a long time ago but are still interested in learning new skills, the following selection of apps should provide you with enough grey matter-moulding content to last you years.
Well this is amusing. The International Olympic Committee has released an Android app into the Play Store that is arriving just in time to stream video from this year's Summer Youth Olympic Games, which will take place in Nanjing, China. Ironically, though, China is the one place where Olympic TV is explicitly labeled not to work. It's written in plain sight on the app's Play Store page.
The event will take place this year from August 16th to the 28th and provide teenagers with a venue to compete in all manner of athletic games.
Tucked into the end of an otherwise unremarkable promo video for the G3 Beat is a fleeting glance of a new, unannounced variant of LG's latest flagship device. The phone is unapologetically labeled the G3 Stylus. It looks identical to the G3 save for a slightly larger screen and, well, a stylus. This is the first we've heard of this particular phone, though it's hardly a surprising addition to the lineup.
Anyone can go to Hulu's website and watch a limited selection of content for free on a computer, but upgrading to the paid Hulu Plus version lets you stream more programs. Hulu Plus also unlocks the mobile apps and set top box streaming, but now the Android app has been updated to let free users get a taste of Hulu on the go.
Free users of the updated Hulu app will get access to recent and past episodes of some shows and a selection of content from Hulu Originals, Anime, Kids, Movies, and Latino.
