Air Call-Accept is a Smart Way to Answer Your Calls

Samsung Galaxy S 4 owners may be familiar with the the Air Call Accept feature, which allows users to answer calls by simply swiping over the infrared sensor located near the earpiece. It’s most definitely a very useful (and fun) feature, allowing you to answer calls by merely bringing the phone next to your ear, or without getting your potentially grotty hands all over the screen. Good thing is, though, you don’t need a Galaxy S 4 to do this. Thanks to the magic of proximity sensors (standard to every phone released in the last couple of years at least), you too can do this.

Inspired by the original Samsung feature, XDA Senior Member Williams.Joe developed Air Call-Accept, a free app which—you guessed it—allows you to answer calls without touching the device. As alluded to earlier, this is done by simply waving or coming within the range before the proximity sensor, meaning answering calls is as easy as holding the device next to your ear, as one usually would when speaking on the phone. When trying out Air Call-Accept, please be mindful that certain bugs may be present, as some users have reported that calls are being automatically accepted when the device is in an small enclosed area, such as the pocket or the bag.

So if you’re device is running Android versions 1.6 or newer and are interested in giving this a go, head over to the application thread for more information.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
