Of all the phone manufacturers out there, Samsung seems to have a particular talent for creating an anticlimax. Our first thought when holding the Galaxy S5 was that we'd been through all this before a year ago, with the equally underwhelming launch of theGS4.
Some say that I'm an Australian. And that as well as being an Engineer, I also enjoy a good game and my Android devices, currently the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 7. All you need to know though is I review hardware and games, write news, and manage the AndroidSPIN Facebook and Pinterest pages.For many of us with Nexus devices, the Android L preview has only been a pipe dream that we can, for now, only gawk at from a distance. Well, thanks to the boffins at XDA, there is another device to gawk at now, and that device is the HTC One M7 .TheAndroid L preview has been ported to the HTC One M7, a photo of which is shown above, and although the ROm is currently in alpha, it’s undoubtedly better than nothing.

While the device has yet to be released so we can’t get at the official versions of the wallpapers, some talented designers out there have painstakingly recreated the Samsung Galaxy S5 wallpaper. While we did feature a blue version of the wallpaper last week ( see here ), that was quite a bit lighter than the version we saw at MWC and wasn’t quite right. Thanks to Shimmi though, who also created the mixed colour version of the wallpaper we featured ( see here ), the blue wallpaper has also been recreated and looks a lot closer to the real thing. As an added bonus, Shimmi has upscaled both the blue and coloured wallpapers up to 1080p for those of you who want the Full HD versions of the; click down below to get the full-sized wallpapers: Who’s enjoying the wallpapers from the Galaxy S5? Better yet, show us your homescreens in the comments below. Source: DeviantArt

Many of the apps in Android L look to have been given a facelift, as has the homescreen which looks especially slick. In many of the hands-on screenshots and videos of the new build, we’ve seen that brown and blue wallpaper that seems to be the poster for Android L right now. So if you don’t have a Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 to try it right now, you can get the Android L wallpaper above (make sure to click through to get the highest resolution). That isn’t the only wallpaper included in Android L, with many old favourites returning that we have seen before when the Nexus 5 was launched. If you want to take a look at some of the other wallpapers that came with Android L, make sure to check out the gallery below: Android L wallpaper gallery Have you tried out Android L yet?

Security has always been an interesting topic on Android and that discussion just got another reason to exist with a development team discovering a security flaw affecting the Samsung Galaxy series that could enable remote access to data on your device.
Security vulnerabilities, especially in software, isn't completely unheard of, but very few are portrayed as being deliberately included for the benefit of certain individuals. Such is the picture that is being painted about a number of Samsung 's Galaxy smartphones, at least according to developers of a different kind Android replacement.
At Heathrow airport in London, Samsung has "taken over" what may be the world’s busiest terminal. Purchasing the bulk of advertising area in the terminal, you’ll see more Samsung Galaxy S5 posters and large signage per square foot here than anywhere else in the world. This campaign is set to stick around for two weeks.
I was an IT consultant for 20 years and ran my own web design and development company for an additional 3 years. I have been involved with technology from birth. OK, that maybe an exaggeration, but it sure is a long time. I'm also an avid Home Theater geek and self appointed installer for friends and relatives. My first serious modding of Smart-Phones started with my T-Mobile WING and now Android devices. I'm also a bit of a photographer, although Android has kind of taken over my life and photography has taken a back seat.I’ve been running KitKat on my trusty old Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for some time now, but the day has finally arrived for AT&T to release the official 4.4.
There’s no lack of interest in the next generation of phablet hardware this season, especially when it comes to the second wave of Samsung’s yearly dishing of smartphones. As the Samsung Galaxy S5 arrives, so too will the Galaxy Note 4 come not long after.
Samsung has announced the availability of KNOX 2.0 on the Galaxy S5. Samsung KNOX, as many will remember, is a security setup aimed at the bring-you-own-device (BYOD) crowd. Samsung touts KNOX 2.0 as offering cutting-edge core platform security, an improved user experience and expanding ecosystem. KNOX 2.

The Samsung Galaxy S5 wasn’t the only flagship device to be announced at MWC 2014 earlier this week; Sony also announced their Sony Xperia Z2 device which replaces their previous flagship, the Xperia Z1 after only 5 months at the top of the roost. The new flagship boasts an updated Snapdragon 801 processor, a larger 5.2-inch display, and crucially, the Triluminos display has been tweaked to address all the viewing angle issues that were reported on the Xperia Z1. While many people liked the wallpaper that they saw on the Galaxy S5 at its announcement, less noise was made for the Xperia Z2, despite the fact that the Sony Xperia Z2 wallpapers also happen to be quite beautiful; while they haven’t deviated much from Sony’s standard artistic flavour, these wallpapers will be standard on Sony’s Android KitKat builds when it finally rolls out to all its devices, and they really do make for some nice backdrops.Thanks to XperiaGuide, we have access to the full collection of wallpapers that will be on the Xperia Z2 when it launches; download the collection from the link below: Official Sony Xperia Z2 wallpapers.zip Let us know what you think of the wallpapers or if you’re considering getting a Xperia Z2 when it releases.
