Verizon LG G Pad 8.3 LTE review

LG released the G Pad 8.3 in the US back in October of 2013. The initial release was a WiFi only model, and that was followed up by a Google Play edition. The GPe model was also WiFi only in terms of connectivity, however a cellular connected model has since come available through Verizon Wireless. We've been playing with a review unit for the past few weeks, and at risk of offering a spoiler in the beginning, we can say there hasn't been any disappointment.

Google Glass XE16.1 update arriving now [Update]

Kit Kat, the XE16 update, rolled out for Google Glass users back on April 15th. There was lots of promise and hope coming with the update. Google touted goodies such as increased battery life, however it also looks like plenty of users had issues as a result of updating. We are on the lookout for a changelog, but we did want to mention a new update is currently in the process of rolling out.

Amazon smartphone expected to make use of tilt gestures

Images of the still unannounced Amazon smartphone surfaced earlier in the month. Those pics detailed a setup that included a handful of front-facing cameras. But while we were able to see those from the pics, the actual style of the handset was disguised with an exterior casing/shell. Perhaps a bit more important were the details about how those cameras on the front would be used to "track the position of the user’s face and eyes in relation to the phone’s display."

Samsung Galaxy S5 water resistance demonstrated

The Samsung Galaxy S5 comes with an IP67 certification. That means the handset is protected against dust and water. Specifically, the 6 means a complete protection against dust and the 7 means the handset can handle being in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes. We certainly aren't suggesting you put that to the test, however Samsung is showing this off in the latest Galaxy S5 promo video.
