The US carrier-branded versions of the curved LG G Flex have been given a release date at this year’s CES 2014. Since LG had the G Flex on display, we took a moment to see what the big deal was all about. Does the curved display add anything to the device, or is it just a LG G2 doing crunches?
XDA Developer TV Producer Jordan was on site and got a chance to get his hands on the LG G Flex and the wearable LG LifeBand Touch (which you can find a video on on his channel). Jordan sat down and talked with the folks at LG. In this video, he shares what he learned and shows off the curvalicious G Flex. Check out this video to see what the curved G Flex looks like.. . .

International CES 2014 has begun, we’ve talked about Nvidia’s exciting announcement and the entrance of Android into automobiles, but there is a bigger overarching trend when it comes to mobile devices. That trend is wearables.
Wearables are not new. We’ve had them for a while—everything from the Pebble smartwatch to the Sony Smartwatches, and even Google Glass. However this year, wearables are blending and merging in their functions.. . . READ ON »

I am, and have always been, an early adopter of a lot of things, particularly when it comes to technology. My cell phone voyage started back in the year 2000 with a Nokia 5110. Back then, only a handful of people had phones, and seeing someone on the street with one was a somewhat rare sight. Nowadays, the same cannot be said. Cell phones have become a massive commodity—one that gets a lot of attention, and certainly one that is likely one of the most profitable industries in the world today (in the tech sector anyways).
Every Joe Schmuck and Jane Doe sport the latest Galaxy devices or one of Apple’s latest iconic iPhones (just to mention a few manufacturers). Sure, they all have a somewhat interesting app. . . READ ON »

It should come as no surprise that here at XDA, we are always calling on the OEMs to do a better job of removing the bloat of their custom UIs (Samsung – we’re looking at you and your now insane TouchWiz size) and improving the overall user experience. What may come as a shock to some, though, is that a recent study by researchers at North Carolina State University says that those same OEMs, and their incessant need to have a custom UI as some sort of “branding,” are directly responsible for most of the security issues found with Android. Cue Home Alone face.

Another wonderful International CES has passed us by. The event was filled with many exciting displays, like the Intel Ultrabook Tree, but most important were the announcements made by many manufactures. Some announcements are still years out, embodying nothing more than an idea. Other announcements having working prototypes, while still others are in the final stages before release or have been released.. . . READ ON »

The morning started off with an LG press conference. They talked at length about “Touch[ing] the Smart Life.” They then talked about their “smart” products. This included everything from refrigerators and washing machines to televisions with more pixels than people in New York.
They spoke briefly about connected devices. They talked about a washing machine that you can start with your smartphone using NFC. You can control their robotic vacuum with your smartphone. They also covered standard device mirroring, or showing your mobile devices screen on your television. The talk included simplifying the setup for this, using a “one touch connection.”
They spoke about their advanced touch int. . . READ ON »

The LG P350, also known as the LG Optimus ME Titanium, is a mid range device that is pretty affordable. If that isn’t enough, it also has received CyanogenMod 7.
XDA Member pax0r has been kind enough to compile the mega popular ROM to this humble device and while the ROM is still a beta, it’s got enough features working to use as a daily driver for some people.
The list of features not working is very short and only includes a small break in the camera where users can’t see previews. However, the camera does still take pictures. This doesn’t mean there aren’t more, as pax0r states:
It’s testing and still WIP release so there still could be bugs.
Before installing, make sure you pi. . . READ ON »

If you’ve been following the LTE-wars, you know that Sprint has decided to diversify beyond WiMax by building a LTE network. Today, Sprint has announced its first two LTE devices, both of which run Android. The first ought to be familiar: the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. It’ll be the same Galaxy Nexus that we already know (with a 1.2GHz TI OMAP CPU, 1GB of RAM, and a 720p S-AMOLED HD display), except that it’ll come pre-loaded with Google Wallet. Then we have the new LG Viper, which will also ship with a 1.2GHz CPU and 1GB of RAM, but a lower-resolution 4″ WVGA Nova display. It also has Google Wallet pre-installed, and thus a NFC chip. The Viper is made from eco-friendly materials, like recycl. . . READ ON »

It’s always good news when a device gets MIUI. Along with CyanogenMod, it’s among the most popular ROMs out there and a “must have” for pretty much any Android device.
The features are pretty standard for an MIUI ROM and include a couple others:
*All features of Official MIUI
*Wi-Fi Calling (Yes it works!)
*Zipalign and Permission scrips by Team Kang
*Trinity Kernel by morfic
There is also a 2nd build with a different kernel in case you’re more into overclocking your CPU than you are saving on batte. . . READ ON »
