LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

There’s never been a tougher time to introduce a new smartphone, but LG thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new LG G4 for 2015. Building on last year’s G3 with a better camera, more high-quality materials, and a cleaner Android install, it may have a vaguely nonsensical tagline - “See the great. Feel the great” - but marketing hyperbole can usually be forgiven if the device lives up to expectations. I spent some time with the G4 to see why LG is talking Quantum Mechanics and movie theaters for its new flagship.

Olympus Air A01 module helps turn lens into a rocket lookalike

Olympus Air A01 module helps turn lens into a rocket lookalike

It may seem that April Fools came a bit late, but make no mistake, this is serious business. Thanks to the Olympus Air A01 module and a ZUIKO DIGITAL ED 300mm f/2.8 lens, your smartphone camera, puny in comparison, can achieve a super telephoto lens effect equivalent to 1,200 mm. There is just one catch. The module is so long and so big that the only comfortable way to use it would be to hoist in on your shoulders, effectively making it look like you're about to literally shoot something instead.

iPhone 6S might stick with 8MP camera hardware

iPhone 6S might stick with 8MP camera hardware

After the launch of Apple’s impressive new iPhone 6, a lot of attention was paid to the refresh. Many assume the iPhone 6S (if Apple sticks to their existing naming scheme, which isn’t a foregone conclusion) would have a camera that packed in more magapixels, and an updated chipset. The megapixel rumor was bolstered when Sony announced a new DSLR-ish sensor for mobile devices, which many believed would find its way to the iPhone 6S. A new report says that might have to wait, because Apple is keeping their 8 megapixel shooter for one more year.

Almost two years have passed by and the fad hasn't caught on completely but there is still quite a following. Sadly, the options in this market aren't exactly wide and most if not all of them have one major flaw: they will try to capture *everything*, leaving you with hundreds of photos and videos to sift through. Enter, QindredCam, a wearable camera that tries to be smarter at lifelogging.

iPhone 6S rumors suggest new camera, HealthKit sensors

The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are two of the more exciting products Apple has unleashed in quite some time. Of the two, differences are slight, but the camera hardware Apple went with on the iPhone 6 Plus is a good reason to stop and consider which you really want. A new rumor suggests those still standing in front of tables at the Apple Store might want to walk away for a few months, as the iPhone 6S camera might end up being even better than the iPhone 6 Plus’.
