Mystery LG device hits AnTuTu Benchmark site - http://www.talkandroid.com/203665-...
Today a mystery LG device surfaced in AnTuTu’s Benchmark site and bears similar resemblance to the G3, except that it’s resolution is 1080p. This device could very well be the LG Liger (LG-F450). Upon further investigation, the phone has three different model numbers for three different Korean carriers: LG-F450K, LG-F450L and the LG-450S.

Weekly Photo Contest: Focus and Blur - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
With more ways than ever to get the sharpest or smoothest shot possible, we're ready to see what you can do with your phone camera this week. With today's release of the Google Camera app, more than a few people are thinking about the great things that are possible with camera hardware and software in today's leading smartphones. You have more options than ever to take amazingly crisp and clear pictures, or selectively apply an artistic blur to them if you see fit. For that reason we're making this week's photo contest prompt "Focus and Blur" — and whether it's an amazingly sharp and in-focus shot or a smoothed-out picture with a shallow depth-of-field, we can't wait to see entries this week. True to the spirit of what this contest is looking to do, we're going to give away a prize that is capable of taking some beautifully sharp and selectively defocused pictures — a Google Play edition HTC One M8! We have just one to give away, so make that picture count! Entering is easy. Just drop...

Announcing the 'Weekly Photo Contest: Flowers' winners! - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
Dozens of fantastic flower photos this week made it nearly impossible to pick just 2 winners Flowers are clearly in bloom if you take a look through the entries in last week's photo contest, and the pictures of those flowers on display are quite incredible. It's a great time of year to see what nature is showing off, and every one of the entries across seven pages in the forums are spectacular. We unfortunately could only pick two winners this week to receive a ZENS Qi Wireless Charger, but we enjoyed seeing every single entry this week.

Google Camera: What's new, and a guide to the latest features - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
The only complaint you can make is that Google didn't release these features sooner. Google has dropped a pretty notable update to its stock camera app, given it a proper name and at the same time opened it up to non-Nexus devices running KitKat in the Play Store. While the interface still isn't mind-blowing, it has changed pretty dramatically from what you'd be used to if you used a Nexus 5 just yesterday. Google has overhauled the picture-taking interface for regular shots, panoramas and Photo Spheres, while also adding a brand new feature called "Lens Blur." We've taken some time to walk through the new interface, and you can color us impressed with the changes that have been made. While we know most of you will be able to get your hands on the app right away and give it a try for yourself, we're going to take a run through all of the latest features of the Google Camera app and give you a few tips for getting the best shots possible.

YouTube for Android updated to support casting live videos to Chromecast - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
Head into the Google Play Store and you'll see YouTube sitting at version 5.5.27. The last time we covered an update for YouTube on Android was in late November when the app improved search results and channel pages. The changelog listed is old, but there are reports that there is now support for casting live videos to Chromecast. Play around with the settings and you'll notice that the Preloading menu has been removed. You'll also find a Captions menu that has been added to YouTube for Android. Play around with the app and let us know if you find anything else in there. Download it now and let us know what you think.

Press render of the white LG L65 strolls onto the internet - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
Over on Twitter, smartphone leakster evleaks has shared a new image of an upcoming Android handset from LG. It's called the LG L65 and appears to be a device aimed at emerging markets. Specs for the LG L65 include a 1.2 GHz X2 processor, a 4.3-inch display and a 5MP camera. Other specs include Android KitKat, dual-SIM support and a removable back. Not mind blowing specs, but certainly appealing for those getting into their first smartphone.

Blocking Mode is a poorly named but extremely useful function that serves as the phone's do-not-disturb mode. You'll find it in Settings>Personalization, or as one of Samsung's numerous quick settings in the notification pull-down.

Battle of the Blur: Defocus camera showdown - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
New camera options bring a little extra to your pictures, but who does it the best? The new rage in smartphone cameras these days is selective focus. Think of a really nice portrait you've seen of a friend or family member, where they were in focus and there was a lovely background that was slightly out of focus. It really makes the subject "pop" and photographers — both professional and amatuer — love the look. It's only natural that this made it's way onto our phones. It's not really something new, as there have been apps that do the same thing for a while now. But seeing the folks who make our phones get into the game means more adoption, and hopefully, better results.

Google announces Q1 2014 earnings: revenue up 19% year over year - http://androidcentral.com.feedsportal.com/c...
Google's first quarter 2014 results are in, and the company unsurprisingly made buckets of money. Revenue was up to $15.4 billion, a 19% increase from the same quarter a year prior. Earnings were also up, clocking in at $4.12 billion — 27% of revenues. That's an increase in the raw profit from last year, but also a drop in the share of revenue (it was 29% this time last year).
