AT&T is pushing an update out to LG G3 owners, but don’t all start jumping for joy just yet. The update is listed as Android 5.0.1, meaning you won’t see Android 5.1 magically appear. According to the changelog, there is only one thing being updated, and it’s basically bloatware. (more…)
For those who picked up a LG G4, the OEM is offering up a few free goodies, including a free leather back cover and extra battery. More specifically, for those who enter their proof of purchase and other information needed to verify ownership, you can receive your choice between one of five different leather back colors, an extra battery, and a battery charging cradle. That’s a value of $140, all for free. (more…)
Sprint didn’t bother to list out much in their changelog, only that this is 5.1. I would imagine HTC might sneak in some camera improvements and other little tweaks to Sense. If you get the update, be sure to let us know.
Included is an enhanced Folio display while a call is taking place, an updated consistency for displaying contacts and non-contacts in the Dialer app, and an enhanced Advanced Calling feature. That’s it. (more…)
To better fit round smartwatches, LG Chem has introduced hexagonal batteries, granting a larger capacity given their shape. Instead of a little square or rectangular battery inside of your round watch, a battery featuring a roundish shape can fit better inside, delivering more juice to end users. (more…)
A deal running since yesterday over at eBay has the LG G4 priced at just $499. That’s a solid price on a phone that is arguably as good as Samsung’s Galaxy S6 in most categories and may beat it in some (battery life would be an example). Verizon wants $550 for it, while T-Mobile and AT&T each want $600 and $630, respectively.
The phone is brand new, unlocked, and ready for use on your favorite GSM networks. The bands listed show that it should work perfectly on AT&T (or Cricket), but should also work well on T-Mobile. The phone comes with 32GB of storage, plus that lovable microSD card slot for more (You could toss in the 200GB card from Amazon).
At this time, the grey model is sold out, but both white and gold are available. Free standard shipping is also included.
T-Mobile’s new JUMP! On Demand program is all the rage this morning, with smartphone lovers excited over the idea that they could trade in phones for the new hotness up to 3 times per year.

We have that info for you now to get you ready for June 28, the day this new upgrade program kicks off. (more…)
