Handcent 4.0 Public Beta Now Available

If you’re one of those people who simply aren’t satisfied with the stock SMS application on your device then theres a good chance you’ve tried Handcent as an alternative. Of all the third party SMS applications available Handcent certainly seems to be one of the most customisable and intuitive.

 Version 4.0 of this incredibly popular application has been in private beta for a while but now it’s  available to the public here on XDA Developers. This is the seventh beta build and there are still a few minor bugs to be ironed out but I’m sure that won’t stop many of you from taking this new version for a spin. 

New features include;

  • Handcent Talk – Allows you to bind your phone number and send text messages for free using the Handcent network.
  • Greater customization
  • Improved compatibility with iOS messaging from iPhones
  • Full ICS Support
  • New Widget

 Known issues;

  • Doesn’t enter batch mode correctly.
  • Some modded users may experience theme compatibility issues when using themes of white text on dark backgrounds.

You can find the original release here.

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...
