Just yesterday, the AT&T LG G4 received an update that automatically installed itself without user permission. As you can imagine, that pissed some people off, especially those who assume the update is nothing more than a root killer. Today, a similar situation appears to be in the works for the T-Mobile variant of the LG G4. Readers of ours, as well as those in various forums, are reporting that a mysterious update is automatically installing and rebooting their phones. Not good. (more…)
The LG G Watch may be one of the original Android Wear devices, meaning it’s old, plain looking, and probably no where near your best option for a smartwatch, but at $50, you might want to think about it. Since smartwatches are one of those items that no one has been able to convince us is a necessity in life, these are the times that actually make sense for purchasing one. What better way to test out a new product that you may or may not need than when it has been discounted to pennies?
Over at eBay, a listing for a “manufacturer refurbished” G Watch is live, but maybe not for long. At $49.99, with free shipping, this little guy will likely sell out in a hurry. If interested, hit that link below.

Back in early April, T-Mobile began rolling out a Lollipop update for the LG G3. Sadly, the update must have sucked, because T-Mobile quickly pulled it from servers, not allowing anymore users to update to it. Now, in almost mid-June, Lollipop is officially back, according to T-Mo’s Des Smith. (more…)
Picked up an LG G4 in plastic, but want to experience the world of leather on a smartphone? Or maybe you bought a leather version, but want a different leather color for those special occasions? Whatever the reason, a newly launched deal by LG for leather back covers is here for you to pounce on. (more…)
The folks over at iFixIt are back with yet another teardown, this time with LG’s latest flagship device, the G4. In the teardown, iFixIt notes the G4’s high repairability score, but more than that, it allows the average consumer to take a look at what actually makes up their phones. In the G4’s case, it really isn’t all that much. (more…)
It was reported late last month that G Watch R owners would eventually receive WiFi support via an update later this year in Q3. Thanks to a bit of hackery and wizardry, a third party developer on XDA has successfully flashed necessary files over from LG’s Watch Urbane to get WiFi up and running on the G Watch R. According to the developer, everything appears to be working well, with minor hiccups performing voice commands. (more…)
