Samsung and LG have done a pretty good job at delivering some pretty awesome accessories to go along with the launch of their phones. LG has just made a pretty bid deal about the official Quick Phone Cover for the LG G5. The case is touch enabled.

You will be able to take calls, control alarms, and more all without uncovering your device's screen. The case itself looks pretty sweet. It features a metallic looking finish and a window so you can see the always on screen!

http://www.android.gs/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/AOKP-JB-Build-3-ROM-for-ATT-Samsung-Captivate-300x250.jpg

Android Open Kang Project quickly became the most popular Rom in the Android dev community a few years back. They sat on top of the Rom world having gained a following with broader reach than even CyanogenMod. This went on for quite a few months. AOKP gained all this popularity by adding some pretty innovative features to their Roms. Some of these features were eventually even picked up by OEMs.

Eventually buzz around this rom series began to die down as development slowed. I have not actually ran this rom in quite some time. Now I finally have a reason to load this rom up again!

AOKP has announced that they are working on bringing up Marshmallow sources. The team has also seen some changes. Head to the source link below.

Adblock Fast was one of the first adblocking apps to utilize Samsung's browser's native ad block support. It was promptly removed from the Google Play Store as soon as it was published. The reason Google gave was that it was an app that had an effect on another app.

Rocketfish appealed Google's decision, and Google changed their mind reversing the ban. Along with republishing the app to the Play Store rocketfish added support for Android 4.0.

The app is intended to speed up your browsing experience by eliminating crazy data consuming popup ads. The only drawback is that it also blocks non malicious ads meaning creators take a hit on the ad revenue they need to keep creating.

Last week we discussed an error popping up on all iPhones that had the home button and touch ID replaced by a third party. Error 53 is triggered when iPhone users attempt to accept an update. Security checks if the iPhone's touch id senosr matches the other devices components. If that part was replaced by a repair company other than Apple the phone's data is wiped and bricked. The only fix is to buy an all new phone.

This seems to be very wrong. While Apple insists this is a measure to protect the consumer, there are others who would like to take a stand against this practice. On one hand you could see a security issue in allowing the home button to be replaced if changing the hardware would actually mean the fingerprint data in the phone was erased. This is not the case, its not like a thief could take your phone to the local repair shop and just have the fingerprint scanner replaced in order to gain access.

The whole idea of not being able to make repairs on something that 100% belongs to you just doesn't sit well with many consumers. There is a law firm who either is pretty good at sensing...

According to unnamed sources, HTC might do some rebranding on the HTC One M10. The rumor suggests that the "One" will stay in the model name, but the M10 part of the branding might get nixed or changed in some way.

That's not the only info that came along with this rumor. Supposedly, the launch date for the next generation HTC flagship will be April 11th. While we have no third party corroboration of these rumors, we wouldn't be surprised if they turned out to be true. What do you think?

Check out these Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge leaks! What looks like a final dummy version of the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has shown up in leaked photos (shown in the thread below). Along with that, a leaked press render of the silver version of the Galaxy S7 Edge was also leaked (shown above).

While the look of the device is not really much different than last year's Galaxy S6, we must admit, that's not necessarily a bad thing when you have such an impressive and unique aesthetic design. The partial-wrap around display of the Edge device is just beautiful as it seamlessly integrates into the case.

Of course, nearly everything is subjective so your mileage may vary. What do you think of these leaked pics?

Just yesterday we heard a rumor that the Samsung Galaxy S7 would have an "always on display" likely designed to facilitate active notifications and gesture based controls. This would be similar to what we have seen Motorola and a few other manufacturers do in the past. In fact, LG recently did this with the LG V10. It looks like they are revisiting the idea with their latest flagship the G5.

According to a press pic directly from LG, their new LG G5 will be coming with an "Always On Display" feature set. Along with the animated gif (which you can see in the thread below), LG also shared the following press statements:

We aren't yet sure what LG plans to do with the feature, but we are intrigued to find out later this month when they official unveil it before Mobile World Congress.

Talon is one of the best third party twitter apps around. I personally just use the main twitter app. I got tired of purchasing third party twitter apps just for them to run out of tokens. When these apps run out of tokens and you replace your phone you find that downloading the app on the new phone means you can't access the app due to the token limit. Many of these third party twitter apps quit upating the app once they were unable to sell more apps.

Talon is one of the few that has continued to update their app. Version 4.0.0 of the app improves on the tablet layout. It also speeds up the quick actions and more.There is now an option for dual panel mode allowing you to view 2 streams at once. Head to the link below for the full changelog.

http://i-cdn.phonearena.com/images/article/78105-image/Samsung-patents-an-S-Pen-that-folds-and-doubles-as-a-kickstand-is-that-you-Note-6.jpg

The Note 5 is a big device and it can get pretty tiring to hold it up for long periods of time. I have actually had digits fall asleep holding the Note 5 watching a football game on the watch ESPN app. Samsung may have a pretty cool trick up their sleeve for the Note 6.

Samsung filed a patent for an S-Pen that folds into a kickstand way back in the third quarter of 2015. The patent shows an S-Pen that would stick halfway in the device and halfway out. It bends in the middle making the kickstand. As long as the mechanism that allows the S-Pen to fold in half is nice and firm when in straight S-Pen form this might be cool. If the hinge is not sturdy and it folds in on itself randomly this could be pretty awful. Of course this is just a patent and who knows this could be vapor ware.
