Amazon's Fire Phone is a lot of things, but easy to repair isn't one of them. So say the folks at iFixit, who have completed their teardown of the handset, which took place live today. Though not everything about the smartphone was a hassle, there were enough issues to give it a low score: 3 out of 10.
A head-up display (HUD) enables drivers to see all the details they need while driving without any hassle or risk of distraction (not to mention giving one's car the snazzy sci-fi feel of having data projected onto the windshield).

Sources have cropped up once again speaking of Apple's upcoming iPhone 6, and they largely confirm what we've heard in the past: that the next-gen handset will come in both 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch sizes, and while rumbles have surfaced hinting at production issues, Apple has reportedly requested that its suppliers produce between 70 and 80 million (combined) units by December 30th in anticipation of high demand.

There's a lot to love about the LG G3, and the manufacturer has tried to capture those elements in its latest handset, the unashamedly mid-tier LG G3 Beat. This smartphone isn't a mini variant; instead, it is aimed at those with modest needs who want, as LG calls it, "a similar premium experience" as the flagship sibling.
On its Samsung Exynos Twitter account, the Korean company tweeted an image teasing the future of its chipset with a sly image. In it, we see a large smartphone with an eye in the middle and a scanner-like circle around it. While no specifics were given, this might indicate the upcoming Galaxy Note 4 will include retinal scanning.
