Without any further ado, Alto’s Adventure is now live on Google Play for all Android folk to download. This game, which became a very popular title on iOS, brings a lighthearted coolness that only llamas and snowboarding down the side of a mountain can provide.
You play as a resident in a small mountain village. After your llamas escape, you are tasked with bringing them back. As you board down the mountain, you collect llamas and coins for points. These points can be turned in at the local trader for “cool” items. (more…)
Yesterday, we shared with you the release notes for the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update that is scheduled to arrive on all Moto 360 variants within the next few weeks. Today, those may come in handy, as the update seems to be pretty widely rolling out to the Moto 360 (1st gen). Why we aren’t seeing it also hit the 2nd gen and Sport models is beyond me, but such is life some times. It’ll get here. (more…)
Still haven’t made the jump to prepaid or AT&T’s surprisingly value-friendly GoPhone service? Starting February 15, if you sign-up for GoPhone, AT&T will give you a second month of service for free. Depending on the plan you sign-up for, that could be a $60 savings.
AT&T says that the process is simple and only requires that you switch your number over to GoPhone and then fund a $45 or $60 plan. As AT&T also points out in today’s announcement, their GoPhone service requires “no annual contract, no credit check, and runs on AT&T’s nationwide 4G LTE network.” (more…)
Last night, because that’s when LG likes to announce details about its upcoming flagship phone, we got to see our first look at the LG G5 in hand. The appearance came via announcement for the G5’s new Touch-Enabled Quick Cover, a cover that has a mesh front panel that allows for interaction.
The Quick Cover will be available at some point after the phone is announced, likely along with a handful of other accessories. The cover, thanks to that mesh outer, enables a user to accept or decline calls and snooze their alarms over and over again without having to pick up the phone and open it. See that picture above? Oooooh, mesh. (more…)
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?
