Move over, Gear Live and G Watch, the Android Wear space is about to get a lot more crowded. Rumors suggested HTC was prepping an Android Wear device of its own, and a rendering tweeted by @evleaks confirms it. (more…)
Our LG G3 review is on the way, don’t worry, but as we put our final touches on it, we wanted to continue showing you all there is to see about this incredible phone. We gave you our 25+ tips and tricks for the LG G3 yesterday, ran through a series of features on Monday, and now have a better comparison of the device to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) to show off.
At this time, these are the three flagships of the moment. Sure, the new Moto X is still on the way, as is the Note 4, but for now, if you are considering a smartphone purchase, these are the three phones you would look at. (more…)
