With everyone on the selective focus/UFocus/Background Defocus bandwagon these days, it’s hard to be content when you have a 1 generation old smartphone without the ability to throw some mad bokeh on your photos. For Sony, that’s not a problem because it has just released its Background Defocus App (A functionality on their Z2) for their handsets. This supports all Sony handsets with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean or later. Sony says you will get the best results if your subject is 15-45cm away and the background is 5m further than the subject.
Earlier, little-known Chinese startup OnePlus just announced its first smartphone – and it almost broke the Internet. Within minutes after the One’s launch ended its website’s servers broke under the intense worldwide attention it got. And it’s not a surprise, either: they knew it was going to happen. What else would you expect when you price a flagship smartphone at almost a third of the retail price of smartphones with similar specs?

You may not have heard of them, but by the end of today you will most definitely be very intrigued by a company called OnePlus.

But just who is OnePlus?
Seeing as how the mobile industry is leaning ever so slightly to the 2K display trend in their handsets, its no surprise when it gets out that Samsung is also working on a variant of their flagship smartphone the Galaxy S5.
