Apple’s Suggestion For iPhone 5 Purple Lens Flare: Just Hold It Better

That’s pretty much what Apple has published in a support article for iPhone 5 lens flare when taking photos. Granted, when a glass lens comes into light of certain wavelengths, it does appear purple, but it seems like iPhone 5 users just can’t put up with it. Nevertheless, Apple just suggests to take another photo, or to prevent that all from even ever happening, just make sure your trusty iPhone 5 is pointed away from the sun when taking shots.

Yeah, the camera’s fine — you’re just holding it wrong. ViaAppleMacRumors

LG Optimus G Hands-On At AT&T Unwrapped

We may have been abusing the “AT&T Unwrapped” branding for these hands-on posts, but who cares? It’s the experience and the photos of devices here that count, right? Here’s the LG Optimus G, complete with AT&T’s 4G LTE, a pretty nice aesthetic (but we’re not fans of the overly-customized Android 4.0 software), a 4.7-inch 1280×768 True HD IPS PLUS display, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, all along with a 2,100mAh battery and 32GB internal storage.

Will it be worth it later this holiday season? I’m not banking on devices that don’t use Android 4.1 Jelly Bean from the get-go at this point — the Galaxy Note II and HTC One X+, both of which I had hands-on time with, did run Jelly Bean — so I am not entirely sure.

Samsung Galaxy Note II AT&T Unwrapped Hands-On!

Apparently, this is the Galaxy Note II on AT&T with 4G LTE data connectivity. You didn’t know that? Well, perhaps I should give you a word on the hands-on experience! The Note II is ever-so-slightly larger than the Galaxy Note that debuted a year before, but with the size increase comes the increase in quality: with a bigger 5.5-inch Super AMOLED HD display, 1.6GHz quad-core processor, 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and Samsung’s much-improved Touchwiz interface.

Release date? Price? Not mentioned by the staff, except the usual: for the holiday season. We can’t wait: the Galaxy Note II is a fantastic phablet, and the S Pen technology has once again been refined, alongside the the appearance of the device.

Samsung Ativ Smart PC with Windows 8 Hands-on At AT&T Unwrapped!

At the AT&T Unwrapped event here in NYC, I’ve had the chance to play with some unreleased hardware. In my ongoing coverage of the devices here, I encountered some PR friends, and with that they detailed the Samsung Ativ Smart PC with Windows 8 (a practically final version, according to Samsung). This is Samsung’s Microsft Surface competitor, and it has a very premium feel — essentially it feels very different compared to the Galaxy Note 10.1 which I reviewed a few months prior.

The Ativ Smart PC packs in an 11.6-inch 1366×768 display, is 8.9mm thick, 4G LTE on AT&T, and weighs 20 ounces. Processing power is decent, with 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, 2 Gigabytes of RAM, and either 32 or 64 gigs of storage. Also included is the industry-standard Bluetooth 4.0 with NFC and GPS chips, and finally, USB 2.0 and mini-HDMI ports. 5MP back-facing and 1.9MP front-facing cameras are also included.

According to our lovely Samsung rep, the Ativ will launch in time for the holiday season.

Hands-On With The Nokia Lumia 920 At AT&T Unwrapped!

The Lumia 920 is Nokia’s device of legend. Sporting dual-core processing power, the Qi wireless charging standard, AT&T’s 4G LTE network, HD display, PureView camera, and a variety of colors. Well, it turns out that Nokia reps aren’t too keen on anyone “going past the homescreen”, so you will have to make do with the fantastic looking shots of the Lumia 920.

Street View Arrives For Google Maps On The Web App

With the mess of Apple Maps and Google Maps, it’s nice to know the latter is taking steps to make sure iOS users are comfortable. Today, Street View was added to the Google Maps web app that functions in both Chrome and Safari for iOS. It works just like it always has, and is as useful as it always has been. And now, for the official Google Maps for iOS app — that will take a little more time, but it will come.

LG Optimus G Is Coming To AT&T And Sprint — At An Unknown Time

Long story short: the LG Optimus G is probably their highest-end product, with the best chance of actually being successful in the US market. Coming out on Sprint and AT&T (with extremely vague details as to when exactly), the LG Optimus G has a 4.7-inch 1280×768 True HD IPS PLUS display, Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 2GB RAM, Android 4.0, 4G LTE a 2,100mAh battery and 32GB internal storage (with expandable memory available). The catch? AT&T is going with an 8MP rear camera, while Sprint will rock out for the 13MP.
