A week ago, we told you to expect a sweet little bundle of goodies should you decide to buy an LG G4. That bundle, according to our exclusive report, would include a free 32GB microSD card, extra 3,000mAh battery, and battery charging cradle. This morning, Sprint confirmed the bundle, while also announcing that their variant of the G4 would be available June 5. (more…)
We still don’t have an official launch date for the LG G4 here in the States, but that won’t stop us from continuing to talk about it, and the features it brings to buyers. Because of this, once your shiny new toy finally arrives on your porch, you should be able to open the box up, and know everything you need to know.
In case you missed our complete G4 review, be sure to check that out, but we also now have a 25+ Tips and Tricks video for you to consume.

LG baked a ton of little tweaks into the G4, so if you were planning to pick one up, definitely give it a watch. (more…)
The LG G Pad 8.3 LTE on Verizon is the newest device to receive an update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. The update will rollout as version VK81035A, for those keeping track.
After the update, device owners will get a lot of the fun that Google introduced with this new version of Android, including new navigation buttons, lock screen notifications, Smart Lock (trusted Bluetooth devices, locations, etc.), search in the Settings panel, floating action buttons galore, screen pinning of apps, and multi-user accounts.
It’s a big update, so make sure you have plenty of battery before attempting to install. (more…)

(Breaking news: Verizon’s LG G4 only has a single Verizon tattoo!) (more…)
Sit down, US consumers. We aren’t talking to you.
LG announced yesterday that they are beginning the global rollout of their new flagship, the G4. (We reviewed it the other day, by the way, in case you missed that bit of fun.) That global rollout, though, doesn’t yet include the US. No sir, LG instead wanted to share word that they are readying things in Hong Kong before moving onto Turkey, Russia, and Singapore. They will then “eventually” launch in most of Europe, North America (that’s you!), and a bunch of other places. (more…)
