There already are many solutions on the Google Play store if you want to send a link to one of your devices -- but what if you wanted to do it quickly without having to install any software or logging in to a website on the recipient end?

Get Back the Old SMS Interface in KitKat with 8sms
If you’re one of the lucky few to already have your hands on the much anticipated Google Nexus 5, you are probably already enjoying many of the new features in Android 4.4 KitKat. Along for the ride with the new OS, comes a new version of Google Hangouts. This new version now incorporates SMS functionality, eliminating the need for the old default messaging app.
While the merging of Hangouts and SMS has been celebrated by many, there are others who find the new interface a bit too cluttered and cumbersome. Unfortunately for them, however, Google removed the default messaging app from the device. Luckily, you can easily get back the pre-4.4 SMS experience with 8sms by XDA Senior Member bengtan.
8sms is based on the Android 4.3 / CyanogenMod 10.2 messaging app. It also has a few added features not found on the old default SMS client such as notification popups, quick reply, gesture templates, emoji, and a dark theme pictured to your right. And thankfully for those looking to get back the old SMS experience, it has been updated to be compatible with Android 4.4 and the Nexus 5.

I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...
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...
