Samsung’s Good Lock updated with case support, darker colors, and many bug fixes

With frequent updates that take into account consumer feedback, Samsung appears to be fully behind its alternate Good Lock UI. Announced last month, the lock and homescreen replacement has been praised for its close to stock notification shade and interesting UI ideas. Today’s update fixes many bugs and adds more customization options.

Video leak reveals Samsung Galaxy S7’s interface for the first time

Less than a week away from Samsung’s Unpacked event, the Galaxy S7 has been shown off in a short 14 second video. This is the first glimpse of the software running on the S7 and it looks nearly identical to last year’s and the version of Marshmallow that is rolling out now to other devices.

LG G3 landscape homescreen leak shows off floating widget, tweaked layout

With less than two weeks left to go until the rumored G3 announcement, we won’t have to wait long until we see the device in all of its glory. However, until then, more details continue to leak.

The latest involves the homescreen in landscape orientation. Since the device is expected to have a 5.5″ display, the screen will be closer to that of smaller tablets than that of a small phone. As such, it appears that LG will have certain features reserved for the display when it is in landscape. The above screenshot depicts the incoming call notification acting like a floating widget above the screen.

Samsung’s devices have a similar feature, though it’s unclear how useful this feature may be. Since floating widgets aren’t natively supported in Android, these types of features tend to receive very limited third-party support. Still — we’ll find out the full plan on May 27th!
