The Samsung Chromebook 2 has now arrived, bringing us greatly improved specs, a faux leather design, and two different versions: a 11.6-inch model with a 1377×768 resolution, and a bigger 13.3-inch model with a full HD resolution (1920×1080).
There are a few other differences between the two Samsung Chromebook 2 variants in addition to their sizes and resolutions. The 13.3-inch model is powered by a 2.1GHz Exynos 5 octa-core CPU and has a battery that’s rated for 8.5 hours of use, all in a package that weighs 3.09 pounds. Meanwhile, the smaller version gets a 1.6Ghz Exynos 5 octa-core, 8 hours of battery life and is lighter at 2.43 pounds.
Aside from this, both models have 4GB RAM, 16GB local storage, 100GB Google Drive storage, USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI out, 720p webcam and microSD.
The new Samsung Chromebook 2 series is without a doubt a pretty big jump up from the last-gen Chromebook series. On the downside, they are also a bit pricier. The new Chromebooks will begin shipping in April, with the 13.3-inch model coming in black and white, priced at 9.99. The 11.6-inch variant will be available solely in gray with a price of 9.99.
What do you think of the latest Chromebook 2 devices, interested or not?
It’s been awhile since the ultimate time we talked about the feature packed screen capture application ZonaSnap . This has always been one of my preferred screen capture apps simply because it has a ton of useful features. Not only is ZonaSnap BBM integrated so you could send screenshots right to BBM contacts and groups, but it’s also got options for Facebook, Twitter, email, and Photobucket. a number of weeks ago ZonaSnap got a pretty substantial update with new features in addition to bug fixes. New options Added:
You can open ZonaSnap with the shake detection (For units with Accelerometer)
All of these new features are on leading of the lengthy list already included, so if you’re not aware of the app you’ll want to see our review of it from earlier this year . One last thing to note: ZonaSnap is supplied in both English and Spanish, and has a 7 day free trial, and then the app will still functionality then again there will be a watermark on your screenshots.

On October 10th of 2012 the Nexus 4 showed up on Carphone Warehouse’s database, hinting that the (then) latest Nexus was about to be unveiled. A little over a year later, a newly leaked screenshot from Carphone Warehouse reveals that the retailer has 1,500 white Nexus 5 units in stock and ready to go in time for the handset’s launch.
The leak first arrived by way of Android Police, who received both the screenshot below and a claim that there were an additional 1,500 black units also in stock.
Looking at the image, this certainly looks like the Carphone Warehouse system as we’ve seen it in the past, though that doesn’t prove anything. This certainly wouldn’t be impossible to fake, so speculation is advised.
If the leak is true, that means that Carphone Warehouse has 3,000 units, and this could be an indication that Google is making sure that its retail partners don’t run into any immediate stock issues (unlike the Nexus 4 launch).
So what else do we know about the Nexus 5? Nothing officially besides what it looks like, but all the rumors point to a device that’s powered by a Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. We also believe the handset has a 4.95-inch HD IPS display, 16/32GB storage, 8MP camera with OIS, a 1.3MP front cam, 2,300mAh battery and (of course) Android 4.4 KitKat.
If all the past rumors prove true, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of mystery left with the Nexus 5 — except for when it’s actually coming.
The latest rumors indicate we now won’t see the Nexus 5 until sometime in November, and considering we’ve yet to receive any official press event, we’d say that’s a safe bet. As for the exact day, only Google knows for sure.
The brand new LG G2 smartphone sure is impressive. We loved nearly everything about the 5.2-inch quad-core flagship smartphone in our full G2 Review. However, one area that always seemed to bother us was the screen brightness, and thanks to several comments and XDA threads, we know we’re not alone. Thankfully there’s many custom apps in the Play Store to fix this, so we figured we’d mention one.
It’s called Lux Auto Brightness, and they’re one of the original screen brightness and automatically controlled apps for Android. It’s still my favorite to date, and is used on any device with a big screen. The LG G2 screen is gorgeous, absolutely, but getting screen brightness perfect was a bit tough. Especially if you use the auto-brightness option.
I usually stick to 30% on screen brightness, but going outside I’m constantly having to crank it up to achieve a better viewing experience. While many phones have a auto option that varies in success, LG’s seems to be just downright awful. Sorry, but it’s true. It’s constantly changing with even the most minor lighting situation, and we found it quite bothersome.
Lux Auto Brightness is the perfect solution. At least for myself so far. For those that haven’t used it, you’ll get the best brightness options available. Their auto option is very subtle as it changes, and isn’t nearly as drastic or noticeable as stock Android, or the LG G2. Which constantly changes and is quite irritating. Not only that, but Lux also changes the temperature based on the surroundings as well.
We tried a few different apps on the G2, but this seems to be the best, still. Then for those who don’t like where Lux takes the brightness or colors on its own, you can customize them. So it still has a brightness you selected, but will change automatically when you are indoors or outdoors. It’s rather neat, and while this is great for almost any device, the G2′s crazy auto setting made this an instant buy for me. Give the paid or free version a try below.

If you were a small South Korea-based smartphone maker who has to take on the likes of industry giants Samsung and LG, what do you think you should do in order to thrive? Some people might be inclined to say wage pointless patent wars, but we think a little bit of good old innovation would also work just fine. That’s exactly what Pantech has tirelessly been trying to do, and now the latest fruit of its efforts comes to us in the form of the VEGA LTE-A.
The Pantech VEGA LTE-A looks pretty much just like any other Android smartphone on the market right now: it has a 5.6-inch Full HD screen, runs on a quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU, and it runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box. But it also supports the newly-minted LTE-Advanced networks over in South Korea, so that’s a plus. It also has fingerprint recognition on its back.
We’re not quite sure how much a single Pantech VEGA LTE-A will set you back, but it will be made available for sale in mid-August through Korean carrier SK Telecom. We’ll have to leave you to your own devices now, as the lady in the photo has apparently been telling us to shup up this entire time.
If you like rumors, here’s a good two-for-one.
HTC is said to release two smartphones in the near future. The first, named Zara, is rumored to be a plastic shell device headed for Sprint. As @evleaks puts it, the Zara “is supposedly a mashup of the One and Desire families”. Interesting take, but oddly accurate. While no specs are available, @evleaks is reporting it will indeed go to Softbank’s new US company. Since Sprint will also have an HTC Windows Phone device launching in the same timeframe, it’s reasonable to assume the Zara will be Android-based.
The One Max is a bit different, and perhaps a bit misleading in name. When we hear a name like Max, we assume the Droid Maxx, which slaps a big battery behind a familiar device. The One Max is more like a Note 3 competitor, only it keeps the same gorgeous build as the original One. Same aluminum chassis, but this one is alleged to be wrapped around a 5.9-inch 1080p screen. HTC Source is also reporting a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, a 3,300mAh battery, and the familiar BoomSound speakers with Ultrapixel camera backing it up.
The One Max is said to make a stop at AT&T, but not as an exclusive. Set to be unveiled in the later part of Q3, the One Max could end up being a contender in the Note 3/Xperia Z Ultra showdown. Nobody minds HTC being late to the party, so long as they bring something good to the mix.
If this all pans out, it looks like HTC is building on the foundation the laid with the One. While they don’t seem to be messing with the success there, other than making a mini and Max device to round out the lineup, they will be offering the decidedly throttled-down Zara. We’ve never had a problem with HTC’s plastic devices, and the Zara will probably be a good device for Sprint, so long as the hardware behind the plastic is worthy of the new HTC brand.
The Google Play Music app has been recently updated, adding a series of useful tweaks to the user experience.
While it may not look like a huge update, what’s been improved can be very helpful in your everyday use of the app (and I’m sure you’ve started to use it even more if Google Play Music All Access is available in your country).
First of all, the app now has the option to delete tracks, so you can get rid of the songs you’re not listening to straight from the app, freeing some space on your device in the process. Another useful thing is that you now have the ability to add a song to a playlist straight from the Now Playing screen, useful especially if you’re into creating playlists for various occasions.
You can now also share a song from that same Now Playing screen, allowing you to show your friends on Google+ what you’re listening to, providing them with a preview of the track, as well as a link that allows them to buy it in an instant, as you can see in the screenshot below.
Finally, you can also remove items from your Library.
