A game called Lost in Harmony has been making the rounds on Google Play, adding up many positive reviews, with the game now currently sitting at a 4.6 star rating. The story follows what appear to be two young lovers, riding a skateboard down many different roads. As you travel down these roads, you come across different obstacles you must steer away from, and if you time your musical taps correctly, the more points you will score. (more…)
Rather than attempting to keep the LG G5 a secret, LG is taking to their social channels to slowly tease their new flagship phone. So far we know the name and when it will be announced, that some of its features might be playful, and the fact that it will have an always-on display. Don’t be shocked if LG continues to tease the G5 feature-by-feature over the next week and a half as we inch closer to its unveiling. My guess is that they’ll subtly announce dual cameras, a new premium design, and maybe even something about the slideout battery. I don’t want to put them in the same category as OnePlus, but in a way, this is kind of a trollout of features. Either way, it’s exciting to say the least.
We’re curious about something, though – will all of this stuff be enough to grab your attention? Last year wasn’t a particularly good year for LG in terms of their mobile business. Most reports had the G4 lagging behind expectations and their earnings for mobile certainly took a hit. That’s not to say that the G4 was a bad phone, it just may not have stood out as a meaningful alternative to whatever Samsung cooked up.
In 2016, we expect the LG G5 to be quite good. There should be a metal body and a stunning display and a top tier processor and removable storage and a slideout battery and LG’s take on a dual-camera setup and more. But is “quite good” good enough? What do you need to see from LG to ditch your Nexus or Samsung Galaxy or Motorola phone? How can the LG G5 win you over?

Last week, Google announced that a major update was coming to all Android Wear watches over the next few weeks. The update is Marshmallow, even though Google doesn’t seem to want to refer to it as such. Inside, Google told us to expect speaker support, additional voice controls over messaging apps, and a bunch of new gestures. Unfortunately for Moto 360 users, the speaker support won’t be included because none of the 360 variants have external speakers. However, the updates are big and we have release notes for all 360 models below. Yes, even the original Moto 360 (1st gen) is getting the update very soon. (more…)
YouTube launched its first batch of YouTube Red Originals this morning, a set of movies and shows that can only be viewed if you are subscribed to YouTube Red. Taking a few of its most popular creators, YouTube set out to take on the likes of Netflix and Amazon, offering original content that can only be viewed in one place. However, with the first batch of shows and movies, don’t expect to see anything on par with House of Cards or Orange is the New Black. (more…)
The Moto X Pure Edition, Motorola’s flagship for 2015, is currently on sale in preconfigured form with 32GB of storage at Amazon for just $374.99. That’s a solid $75 discount on a phone we still have in our top 3 of best Android phones you should buy today. The newest Moto X starts at a price of $399 on most days, but that’s only with 16GB of storage. If you take today’s deal, you are doubling the storage and still getting a price cut from the base model.
If you want to take advantage of this deal, you won’t get Moto Maker customization. What you are getting is either the white model, which has a white front and back with gold frame, or the black model, which has a black front and back with dark metal frame. Again, these are the preconfigured models. The white and bamboo Moto X Pure Edition with 32GB is also on sale, but because of the bamboo, it will run you an extra $25 at $399.
The device includes Prime shipping for those subscribed to Amazon Prime.
