The only complaint you can make is that Google didn’t release these features sooner.

Google has dropped a pretty notable update to its stock camera app, given it a proper name and at the same time opened it up to non-Nexus devices running KitKat in the Play Store. While the interface still isn’t mind-blowing, it has changed pretty dramatically from what you’d be used to if you used a Nexus 5 just yesterday. Google has overhauled  [Read More...]

Over on Twitter, smartphone leakster evleaks has shared a new image of an upcoming Android handset from LG. It’s called the LG L65 and appears to be a device aimed at emerging markets.

Specs for the LG L65 include a 1.2 GHz X2 processor, a 4.3-inch display and a 5MP camera. Other specs include Android KitKat, dual-SIM support and a removable back. Not mind blowing specs, but certainly appealing for those getting into their first smartphone.

Battle of the Blur: Defocus camera showdown

New camera options bring a little extra to your pictures, but who does it the best?

The new rage in smartphone cameras these days is selective focus. Think of a really nice portrait you’ve seen of a friend or family member, where they were in focus and there was a lovely background that was slightly out of focus. It really makes the subject “pop” and photographers — both professional and amatuer — love the look. It’s  [Read More...]

Camera 1

It has been a trend for companies to put their standalone apps in the Play Store for quick updating. Google usually does this type of thing with all of their apps. One, however, has never been included in the Play Store… until today. They’ve finally added their camera app to Google Play.

The camera comes with a much-needed interface update, as well as a  [Read More...]

Google’s first quarter 2014 results are in, and the company unsurprisingly made buckets of money. Revenue was up to $ 15.4 billion, a 19% increase from the same quarter a year prior. Earnings were also up, clocking in at $ 4.12 billion — 27% of revenues. That’s an increase in the raw profit from last year, but also a drop in the share of revenue (it was 29% this time last year).
