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.

Verizon announced this afternoon that its variant of the LG G4 will go up for pre-order May 28 before arriving in stores on June 4. Priced at $22.91 per month for 24 months through Verizon Edge, or $549 at full retail, Big Red appears to be offering one of the better deals in the industry for this new LG flagship.
T-Mobile told us to expect the LG G4 today and they delivered. You can now purchase the LG G4 from the Uncarrier for $0 with equal monthly payments of $24.99 per month. In case you don’t have a calculator handy, that means you will pay $599.76 over that 24-month period.
Don’t forget that T-Mobile is tossing in a free 128GB microSD card, though supplies are limited. Also, T-Mobile has an exclusive on the brown leather version and they haven’t even upped the price on it over the standard grey plastic model. That seems like a deal in and of itself, especially since you could swap it out if you decide you don’t like it or it doesn’t hold up to the elements.
Be sure to read our LG G4 review if you haven’t already.

Yes, two phones! (more…)
The LG G4 is making its way to US stores! The phone that has clearly won Tim over, will be available starting tomorrow from T-Mobile’s online store before arriving in stores on June 3. Priced at $0 down with monthly payments of $24.99, you are looking at a $600 investment that will be well worth it. This is a fantastic phone, easily up there in terms of overall package with the Galaxy S6. (more…)
