HTC is set to take an unexpected leap into extreme sports gear with a waterproof camera that will challenge the GoPro, according to a source familiar with its plans.

In just a couple of days from now, Motorola will be unveiling the successor to the Moto X, which was widely regarded by many as one of the best phones to launch last year.

Even though the original Moto X did not sport beastly specs or a great camera, it provided quite a lot of unique features which greatly enhanced its usability.


Smartphone cameras have improved tremendously in the last few years but a camera is only as good as the photography skills of the person using it. If your photography skills are poor, it does not matter whether you use a Lumia 1020 or an HTC One, the final images will still come out looking mediocre.

Thankfully, photography skills are no rocket science and can be easily learnt by anyone. Below, we list down some tips that should help you in taking better photos with your smartphone camera.


Last week at its I/O conference in San Francisco, Google announced Android L — which it pegs as the biggest update to the OS ever. Yes, even bigger than Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, with which Google finally started taking design and UI performance seriously.

However, even apart from the above changes, Android L includes a lot of new goodies, which Google did not mention at its keynote, probably due to the lack of time.

Worry not though, as we list down five such features below, which will greatly benefit the end users once Android L lands on devices later this year.
