Comparison: LG G4 vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs. HTC One M9

The latest flagship devices from Samsung, LG, and HTC have been unveiled. With that, it’s time for consumers to begin researching which one will be best for them, as each device offers something quite different.

Without question, the G4, One M9, and Galaxy S6 Edge differ greatly not only on paper, but in design as well. The G4 is similar to previous high-end devices from LG and other OEMs, featuring a primarily plastic body, with exception to the leather-backed models. The One M9 continues HTC’s tradition of using metal throughout its design, while Samsung took a completely different route, utilizing a ton of glass and metal siding as its materials of choice.

Each device runs a different processor clocked at varying speeds, and each also features very different cameras. For your average consumer, the use of a QHD display may not be on the list of deal breaker attributes, but more importantly, buyers will want a good camera, good battery life, and a phone that is not confusing to use.  (more…)

Video: Android Wear 5.1.1 Tour on the Watch Urbane

We are still waiting for the big Android 5.1.1 update to rollout to your favorite Android Wear watches (like the Moto 360 and LG G Watch R), but before that happens we can still show you what to prepare your brains for thanks to the LG Watch Urbane, which is already running it. Yes, for whatever reason, LG and its Watch Urbane got first dibs on one of the biggest Android Wear updates to date(more…)

LG Watch Urbane: Unboxing and First Look

The LG Watch Urbane is in the house! The premium Android Wear device from LG, which was first unveiled at MWC in February, is now available on the Google Store for a whopping $349, in case you were interested.

We picked one up to take it for a first spin and share some thoughts on the latest in smartwatches running Google’s wearables platform. With its premium stainless steel body and polished finish (in either silver or gold), along with a P-OLED display, water resistance, heart rate monitor, and genuine leather strap, this is arguably the best yet. Well, that all depends on your taste in watches, of course. The Moto 360, even after all these months, is still the best looking of the bunch, in my opinion.  (more…)

LG Launches LG Call App to Google Play, Currently Compatible Only With Watch Urbane

An app called LG Call, that allows LG smartwatch owners to dial a phone number, then take the call on their smartphone, was released today onto Google Play. Unfortunately, in the app’s description, LG does not state specifically that this app is only usable by Watch Urbane owners, and this has apparently upset quite a few G Watch R and G Watch owners.  (more…)

Question of the Day: Why Aren’t You Buying the LG G4? Why are You?

Like with any flagship, I get the feeling that the DL community is torn on the LG G4. Some love it, others don’t. Some are buying it the minute it becomes available (27% of you), and others will keep their current phone or wait for something in the future that is more appealing to them. And you know what? That’s the way it should be. Not every phone is built for everyone, well except the iPhone. (Hah!) In all seriousness, choices are what makes Android so great. The LG G4 is another of those choices.  (more…)

Here are the First 4 LG G4 TV Commercials

With the phone official, LG is getting ready to ramp up promotional tactics for its newly unveiled flagship, G4. To kick off the campaign, they went ahead and released the first four TV commercials that you will likely see in the US and other places around the globe. Each focuses on what LG has deemed are the phones major selling points:  the 16MP f/1.8 camera, Quantum IPS display, and leather backing.

The commercials come in both 15-second and 30-second spots, but to give you the best presentation, we embedded all of the 30-second spots below.

Tell us what you think – are these the types of ads that are going to help the G4 cut into Samsung so-far-so-good Galaxy S6 numbers?  (more…)
