LG G3 hands-on by SlashGear

LG’s latest flagship, the G3, is ready for prying eyes and fumbling thumbs. SlashGear has gone hands-on with the device in London, and offers up a glimpse at just what makes the device so good.

HTC One mini 2 takes on the midrange: We go hands-on

HTC has a midrange problem. The One M8 is a great phone, but it's a flagship which means it's expensive. It's also big, with a 5-inch screen and those frequently-commented-on big bezels top and bottom. Arriving to hopefully save the day is the HTC One mini 2, taking the style and some of the key functionality of the One M8, and making it easier to hold, easier to afford, and far more suited to the mass-market.

Samsung Galaxy S5: Kids Mode

Kids Mode begins as a widget and ultimately ends up a way to child-proof your Galaxy S5. Samsung touts Kids Mode as offering "fun and safe content for children." It comes with a few preset options, and parents also have the ability to whitelist other apps. Perhaps key here -- this is all PIN protected, which means you don't have to worry about your important files being moved and/or deleted.

Baldur’s Gate Enhanced Edition: first impressions on a revived classic

Android, and mobile gaming as a whole, has created an opportunity for games and game developers to cater to a new generation of gamers, some of which never had the pleasure of playing the most beloved titles of old. Yes, we're talking about ports, remakes, the whole shebang. Today, one of those classic titles has once again resurfaced to lure both old timers and fresh blood alike. Baldur's Gate, which saw itself remade in late 2012, is now officially and natively available on Android.

Samsung Galaxy S5 camera: out of the box basics

Similar to what we did with the HTC One (M8), we are going to offer an out-of-the-box look at the Galaxy S5 camera setup. This includes a tour of the camera interface and some of the available options and settings. But while the different modes and settings can be helpful -- we feel there are plenty of users that simply take pictures and record video with little thought in regards to the settings.
