For anyone waiting to see what the G4 from LG will bring, this was a good week for you. There was a ton of images leaked of the G4, proving that in fact, it will feature leather on a few models. Unfortunately, this means I owe Kellen $5, as I lost a bet that the phone would not feature leather.
On top of the G4, Huawei announced the P8, the OnePlus Two should launch in Q3, Samsung is hoping to fix a few battery woes for Galaxy S6 owners, we got our first look at the Monolink band for the Moto 360, and Android 5.1.1 should be available very soon for download.
To catch up on the best Android news of the past week, we have a collection of stories for you below. (more…)

To help spread awareness for LG’s VR for G3 headsets, we have in our possession three, count ‘em 1, 2, 3 LG G3 headsets to give away. Each is for T-Mobile’s network, so if you are already on T-Mobile or plan on switching to the Uncarrier, these will be a nice little prize for you.
With VR for G3, which is based off of Google Cardboard, G3 owners can experience a somewhat basic virtual reality, complete with games and apps, all of which are available directly from Google Play. The VR for G3 is available directly from LG when you purchase a new G3 and select retailers, plus LG couples a QR code on the box where you can grab a few exclusive VR titles for your enjoyment.
So, if you are interested in winning, let’s get to it. (more…)
Google is probably going to release Android 5.1.1 to the Nexus 7 (2013) and Nexus 9 at any moment. Well, it could be today or next week or next month for all we know, but it’s in the works and probably next. We assume that is the plan because they are publicly referring to it on an “Audio Latency Measurement” page that is a part of the official Android source portal. (more…)
For what is likely a limited time, Best Buy is selling the Moto G (1st Gen) for Verizon prepaid customers through its website and eBay, priced at just $40.

And yep, it is a “slow news day.” (more…)
