Today’s high-end smartphones have a host of whizbang features that differentiate them from their competitors. From Samsung’s Multi Window, which lets you view two apps side by side, to LG’s QTranslate app, which scans foreign-language text with the camera to translate it in real time, a number of these goodies really do make your life better. However, like spinning rims on a car, many proprietary smartphone features are all style and no substance. These are the dumbest smartphone features today.
Ever wish you could have a grotty little picture of your face, sitting in a tiny box overlaid on top of those pics you took of your kids? LG and Samsung have you covered, with dual-camera modes that shoot with both the front- and back-facing cameras at once. If only Annie Leibovitz had this feature.
