Lenovo Tech World Is Happening June 9th With Project Tango Reveal And Maybe New Moto Hardware

Lenovo Tech World is taking place on June 9th in San Francisco. There wasn't much reason to care about Tech World last year, but this time there will be at least one big announcement. The company pre-announced its upcoming Tango phone at CES, and this is where we'll get the specifics. The website also mentions Moto, indicating we could get something official about the upcoming Motorola devices.

More Than Two Months Later, Google+ Notification Filters Still Aren't Live In The Android App (Or Ready Yet)

The Google+ team has been actively working on both the mobile apps and the web version of its service for a few months since the last major revamp, but there's one feature that has been promised since February 24 that is yet to be available to us.

In version 7.3, Luke Wroblewski (ie the Google+ man) announced a new feature that would filter notifications by All, Unread, and Other. The filter drop down never showed up in version 7.3 and we had to wait until v7.6 that was released on April 6 to see a glimpse of it. It was short-lived though and the change was taken away by a server-side switch quickly thereafter.

VRidge Lets Virtual Reality Fans Play Oculus Rift And SteamVR Games Using Google Cardboard

The current boom in virtual reality tech is progressing along roughly two lines: big, complex, and expensive VR headsets driven by full-power gaming machines, like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, and small, cheap headsets that slot a high-resolution smartphone in to pull double duty as processing unit and display, like Google Cardboard and Samsung Gear VR. Users who don't have four figures worth of money to burn have had to make do with the latter. But a new app is hoping to change that.

More Leaked Next-Gen Moto X And DROID Photos Appear Online

Motorola has never been very good at keeping a secret, and rumblings of its next-gen phones in the Moto X and Moto G lines have been leaking out to the Internet for several months now. Between a supposed "prototype" image and what look like rendered press shots, no one has been able to completely confirm the design of the upcoming phones, but they certainly look promising. Today the HelloMotoHK Google+ account has posted three new images, two of which seem to show a rendered version of the leaked 2016 Moto X and another that looks like a DROID variant.

HTC Releases An App For Its 'Ice View' See-Through Case For The HTC 10

HTC really wants to make a cool transparent case for its flagship devices. It started with the One M8 and the "Dot View" case, which adapted the windowed covers first released by Samsung and LG into a grid with Lite Brite-style holes to view the screen underneath. There was a revised Dot View case for the One M9, but for the new HTC 10, we're getting a redesigned and completely transparent "Ice View" case. Like the previous iterations, HTC has released a specialized app in the Play Store to let users operate the case.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To Verizon's Galaxy Note 10.1 And The GSM-LTE, Sprint, and Verizon Galaxy Note II

The Galaxy Note II and its tablet big brother the Galaxy Note 10.1 were both released in 2012. That being the case, the odds of them getting an Android 6.0 update are about as good as the Chicago Cubs winning the Super Bowl. Of course, a lack of updates (even for hardware that might not meet the minimum requirements) is a big part of what makes custom ROMs so popular. So it is that the CyanogenMod ROM's version 13, based on AOSP code for Marshmallow, has come to a handful of older Samsung devices.

[Deal Alert] eBay Has A New Unlocked LG G4 (Black Leather, 32GB) For Just $275 With Free US Shipping

The brand-spankin'-new LG G5 is certainly interesting, but its modular accessory system hasn't won everyone over, including David Ruddock in his full review. If you still want a new phone but would prefer to return to a simpler time when a leather back plate was the gimmick of the year, one eBay vendor is selling last year's model at a significant discount. The G4, with 32GB of storage and an upgraded (and somewhat divisive) black leather back, is just $274.99.

Samsung's Galaxy J3 Is Live On AT&T, Packs A 1.3GHz Quad-Core Processor And 720p 5-Inch Screen

AT&T announced the Galaxy J3 last month, to rapturous applause almost no reaction at all. In case you'd forgotten, it has a 5-inch 720p screen and a quad-core Samsung Exynos processor.

This phone isn't low-end. Not really. When I think low-end, I think 1GHz Snapdragon processor, 512MB RAM and 1GB of storage; something like the HTC Wildfire. Despite this, the J3 is available on a prepaid contract of $5.67/month, or for $169 upfront. For a phone of this quality - 720p Super AMOLED display, 1.3GHz quad core processor, 1.5GB RAM, 2600mAh battery, 16GB expandable memory, and 4G LTE - that seems astoundingly cheap.

Video Review: HTC 10 - The Road Back

You've read our HTC 10 review, and now we're back with the video version with our ever-lovable video host Mark Burstiner. Mark takes a look at what makes the 10 tick, and if the 10 ticks the boxes it needs to in the increasingly cutthroat flagship smartphone game. HTC's latest device has been almost uniformly praised as the best smartphone they've released since the progenitor of the One series, the One M7, while still inheriting that vital HTC design DNA that made the original One such a showstopper. But is HTC's best good enough in 2016? That's a tougher question.
