If you haven't seen the LG G3 by now, you've been living under a rock. LG's upcoming flagship has been leaked ten ways to Sunday, but we're finally seeing it in full-on press shot mode with the latest dump from Phone Arena. Unfortunately, these photos still don't show us what the G3's software is going to look like, though that does make it easier to hold out a modicum of hope that LG will back off with its UI modifications on this new device.

The HTC One M8 hasn't been out for all that long, but it's already feeling the blues. This isn't just a slight case of them, either. According to a leaked press shot from @evleaks, the phone's suffering them from its heads down to its toes. Just take a look at this press image and see for yourself.
It's amazing how a phone with a body to die for could still find itself so depressed. Read More
At this point there's little doubt that Motorola will be unveiling the "Moto E" at its event next week. In addition to a leak on Facebook comparing the phone to the low-end Moto G, some new information and a promotional image has come out of FastShop, a Brazilian Internet retailer. According to the specifications that briefly appeared on the site, we're looking at a phone that's very similar to the G with a redesigned case and budget-minded specs. Read More
In our recent post about Google's plans to break its Search sauce out of the dedicated app and bring it to the rest of Android, I alluded to the fact that we'd have more to talk about later. Specifically left un-discussed were the implications of new navigation buttons for the Android home screen. As readers will remember, our information leads us to believe that the navigation bar will be getting a shakeup, with the new layout including the typical back and multitask buttons, plus a "Google" button, which appears - for now - to be an actual Google logo.

Motorola is set to have an event in just a few days on May 13th. Rumor has it the company will announce the Moto E, an even more affordable Android device targeted at developing markets. You don't have to wait for the official unveiling to get a glimpse of the device. A user apparently posted a pic of the Moto E on Motorola Mexico's Facebook page.
SamMobile has gotten its hands on some pictures of the Galaxy Tab S 10.5, which is yet another Samsung tablet for us to keep up with (please don't hurt me if I accidentally type Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro S 7.7 one day - I'm really trying here). What makes this one special is its screen, as it is expected to ship with a 2560×1600 AMOLED display. The device will reportedly come in two sizes, 8.4 and 10.5 inches. Read More
We've steered clear of many of the rumored photos of the upcoming LG flagship refresh, if only because they weren't very good or very clear. But the latest spy shots from GSM Arena look like the real deal: an "LG G3" that brings the company's top-of-the-line phone back in a bigger and more evolved form. Oh, and it's gold. Very, very gold.
Compared to the international version of the G2, this phone looks a little bigger and less rounded, and the front façade has been given an overhaul with a case-colored insert beneath the glass screen. Read More
It seems that even when our phones are covered in metal and marketed as the pinnacle of mobile hardware design, we can't get away from manufacturers who want to make them pink. HTC apparently thinks there are at least a few consumers who want a blush-colored One M8, because Evleaks just posted a promotional shot of said phone in pink. Every millimeter of the M8's aluminum shell is covered in the rosy hue. Read More
We've been hearing rumors of a "mini" version of the HTC One M8 almost since the flagship phone itself started leaking, and today we've seen some of the first concrete evidence that it's nearing completion. Perennial mobile Deepthroat Evleaks posted the renders/press photos below, showing the new device in three different colors. It preserves the style and materials of the current HTC One line.
Metal body? Check. Dual front-facing speakers? Check. Read More
OEMs have tried a few times to make Android work in the notebook form factor, but the closest anyone has gotten is the Transformer line from Asus. Those are tablets first, though. The HP Slatebook 14 is a straight-up laptop running Android, and it's starring in a video demo posted by HP. Update: It looks like HP wasn't ready to spill the beans quite yet. It pulled the video from its site for the time being. Read More
