LG Watch Style Review

MWC is here and that means we should get a new wave of Android Wear devices over the coming weeks that tempt us into parting ways with hundreds of dollars for the honor of being attached at the wrist level to our phones. Ahhh, the future. Before we get there, though, we wanted to wrap-up our coverage of the first two Android Wear 2.0 devices that LG and Google introduced to us a couple of weeks ago, the Watch Sport and Watch Style.

Tim has already posted his review of the LG Watch Sport, so be sure to check that out. Today, I’ve got the LG Watch Style review for you, a watch that is certainly on the cheaper end when compared to the Watch Sport, but supposedly equally as important.  (more…)

Google Renames Messenger to Android Messages

I promise that we aren’t purposely trying to confuse you all of the time about Google’s messaging strategy, but we have an update today.

Tuesday Poll: A Phone’s Back Button Belongs on the Left or Right?

So let’s decide once and for all! Do you prefer the back button to be on the left, where Google, creator of the platform that all Android phones are built upon, has placed it and where almost everyone other Android OEM places it, or should the back button go on the right, where Samsung, king of smartphone makers who (rightfully) laughs at all who question its decisions, puts it?

Left or right. You must choose.
