Last week, an unannounced Sony-branded smartphone bearing model number D6603 passed through the United States of America’s official certification authority, the FCC, and now a similar device has been spotted in a separate filing with identical documentation, strongly indicating that it’s more than likely the European version of the Japanese company’s upcoming flagship smartphone — the Xperia Z3 (D6653).


HTC initially launched its flagship smartphone of 2014 in two color options, Gunmetal Grey and Glacial Silver, with a third, Amber Gold, being added just one month later. All three colorways exhibit the handsets beautiful, sleek design in a bold, yet elegant way, but are not to everyones liking. That’s why the Taiwanese company has today announced pink and red alternatives of the One M8 — so users can select a shade that suits their style.


Today’s selection for our weekly Wednesday’s Must Have Game column is Plants vs. Zombies 2, which originally launched for Android back in September 2013, the game has since been named as one of the best action-strategy adventure games on the market and just two days ago it surpassed 20,000,000 downloads.


Do you own an HTC One M8? If so, I’m pretty sure you’re aware of the integrated Quick Toggles menu which appears when you slide through your notification bar with two fingers. This feature presents you with shortcuts to the system settings, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS. However, you may not know that you can manually select which toggles show in the menu and how they are arranged.


Google has just released and uploaded the official kernel files for both Samsung’s Gear Live (Sprat) and LG’s G Watch (Dory) to its Android Source Platform. For many of us, they’re not much use, but for developers they’re a godsend as they now have the tools to produce some awesome new features.
