Samsung Galaxy Alpha Will Come Exclusively To AT&T On Sept. 26th For $612.99, $199.99 With Two-Year Contract

The Galaxy Alpha, on paper at least, is a dream phone for scores of Samsung users. You get the look of a Galaxy device without necessarily getting the feel of one. The phone is made of metal and premium materials, making up for the cheap build-quality that plagues even Samsung's high-end devices. Americans turned on by such an idea can now pick a Galaxy Alpha up come September 26th, when the phone will go on sale exclusively from AT&T online and in stores.

XDA Member Ports PlayStation 4 Remote Play Feature For All Rooted Android 4.0 Devices

When Sony announced that the PlayStation 4's Remote Play feature would be available to Android phones and tablets in November, gamers got excited... right up to the point where they found out that the feature would be exclusive to the new Xperia Z3 line. While the Z3, Z3 Compact, and Z3 Tablet Compact look like fine machines, that isn't much consolation if you can't afford them or can't even find them in your country.

Multiple Google Employees Are Using Android L On The Nexus 4

Nexus 4 owners, don't lose hope. Though your 2012 Google phone was cruelly looked over for the developer preview builds of Android L (along with everything that wasn't a Nexus 7 2013 or Nexus 5), sharp-eyed Google+ users have spotted two different Google employees posting on the Chromium section of code.google.com claiming to use the Nexus 4 with Android L. Check out this entry from a contributor with a Chromium.org email address, explicitly using the "LRW52G" build of Android on his or her N4.

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.

The Moto 360 Display May Have A Problem With 'Image Persistence' From The Charging Screen

Motorola chose to go with an LCD panel for the Moto 360, which should mean no problems with burn-in like you'd see on an AMOLED. However, a few users have started reporting something that looks an awful lot like burn-in. What we're probably seeing is image persistence, which can sometimes happen to LCDs. While annoying, it's not as bad as AMOLED burn-in.

Motorola May Be Planning New Colors For The Moto 360, Including Gold

Motorola currently offers the Moto 360 in silver and black colors, but what if you want something a little more blingy? The company posted a promo image recently that piqued everyone's interest as it showed what is clearly a gold Moto 360. When we asked about it, Motorola was all like "what watch?"

Meizu MX4 Quick Review: Step Into The Weird World Of Popular Chinese Smartphones

If you've never heard of a smartphone maker by the name of Meizu, that's understandable. (Even though we actually reviewed their first Android smartphone about 2 years ago.) That's because Meizu, despite selling some phones outside of its home market - China - does no advertising and has very little press outreach in the western world.

Meizu's latest phone, the MX4, sells in mainland China for under $300 (1,799 Chinese Yuan) in 16GB trim.

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.
