Regardless of which Android phone you currently run, unless its the Nexus 6, you undoubtedly want the Lollipop update as soon as possible. From what we can tell with the latest leaks, the developer preview build Google released a few months ago for Android 5.0 has been paying dividends, as it appears two of the top OEMs might almost be ready to start pushing out updates to their flagship devices.
The newest leaks come from LG for the G3 and Motorola for the Moto X. Each leak consists of only a few screenshots, but for those who are waiting for the update, this is better than nothing. (more…)
After posting our Nexus 6 unboxing and initial impressions video at the end of last week, a number of you have asked for us to compare this or that device to it side-by-side.

The LG G Watch R is officially coming to the US on November 5 for $299. Yep, that would be this Wednesday. You will be able to purchase LG’s premium watch at AT&T’s online shop on November 5, then in stores on November 7.
For those not familiar, the G Watch R is the other round Android Wear smartwatch. LG will probably tell you that it is the only fully round smartwatch, which is them taking a subtle, but well-played jab at Motorola for the “flat tire” found at the bottom of the Moto 360. The device is also made of premium materials, like metal and leather. It has a 1.3-inch P-OLED display, the first of its kind. It also has a heart rate monitor, classic sport watch styling, and really is the other premium Android Wear watch to consider. (more…)
LG introduced what is now the world’s narrowest bezel at 0.7mm, bordering a 5.3″ Full HD (1080p) LCD panel. To compare this new panel’s bezel to an existing one, the LG G3 features a bezel of 1.15mm. As another good comparison, the thickness of a credit card measures in on average at 0.8mm. (more…)
The LG G3 on Verizon is receiving an update today to build VS98511C that should bring a performance boost to the QHD beast. I can’t tell you how many people have told us that their G3 has slowed down immensely over the last couple of months, so hopefully this takes care of whatever was plaguing a device that has enough in the spec department to not have issues with performance.
The update also improves network connectivity and adds camera app access directly to the lock screen through a swiping gesture. (more…)
With LG announcing global availability for the G Watch R beginning in November, AT&T confirmed today that the company will carry the Android Wear device in-store, with pricing and an exact launch date coming at a later time. (more…)
