Huawei is reviving smartphone leather backs with stitching

One day bootleg pants are all the rage, the next it's considered a faux-pas to wear one and everyone moves to skinny leg pants. A couple of years later, bootleg pants are back in style and you feel like you understand nothing about nothing because you just threw yours in the trash. Just like clothing fashion, smartphone design goes through cycles. A few years ago, the Note 3 started the trend of using faux-leather with stitching on the back and so followed the Note 3 Neo, Note 4, and Note Edge. Not to be outdone by it, LG carried on the torch with the LG G4 and its middle stripe stitch, but the style pretty much died with it.

Huawei announces four striking new P20 and P20 Pro colors, including two leather options

Huawei's P20 is known for being available in some refreshingly funky color schemes. It launched in a few different colors, including the eye-catching Twilight variant, which has a color-changing finish that shifts from blue to purple to green depending on the lighting. Now, the P20 is getting four new non-traditional finishes: two more iridescent models, and two sporting leather.

What We Use, 2018 Edition: The stuff Ryne can't live without

I've been here at Android Police for over a year, now, fighting my way up the ranks and RSS feeds.

As a result of that, I've accrued a ton of hardware and software, much of which has become an integral part of my workflow and life.

So here's a peek at all the stuff, personal and professional, that lets me do me.

Bellroy's $29 leather-clad Pixelbook Pen Clip just popped up on the Google Store

Google's Pixelbook might not be for everyone. It does need somewhat unique tastes—and a very flexible workflow—to truly appreciate it. But if you did plonk down the $999+ required to snag one, now you can get an appropriately ostentatious clip for the accompanying Pixelbook Pen

More Motorola Leaks: 'Style Mod' Replaceable Covers For The Moto X/Z And DROID Come In A Variety Of Materials

Like it or not, it's clear that Motorola's often-leaked upcoming batch of phones will be very different from the relatively straightforward designs in its current lineup. Previous leaks indicated that at least some of the models in the refreshed Moto X (or possibly Moto Z) and DROID series will have add-on modules called "MotoMod" that snap onto the back of the phone via a proprietary interface. It's a lot like the direction that LG is taking with its modular G5.

[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.

[Deal Alert] GSM Unlocked Moto X 2014 Available For $200 On Amazon Today Only - Plastic, Leather, And Bamboo Versions On Sale

The Moto X series has been known for being a good deal when compared to other flagship phones. If you're OK with buying last year's model (which is still more than serviceable, and is scheduled to get a Marshmallow update at some point), Amazon is selling it for just $199.99 today. This is the American GSM version, so it should work on AT&T, T-Mobile, and similar MVNOs. It's a new phone featuring the stock 16GB of storage. The price is only valid for the next 16 hours (ending at 5 AM Eastern US time), so get an order in quickly if you want one.

LG Shows Off The Leather-Clad G4 And Most Features In A Huge Web Leak

Thanks to the fanatical culture that's grown up around mobile technology, we haven't been truly surprised by a new device in years. Even LG knows this: the company has been slowly revealing its upcoming G4 flagship, piece by pedantic piece, in the weeks leading up to the April 28th launch event. Last night an LG "micro site" was briefly published and removed, and it leaves very little of the G4 to the imagination.
