Since we took a look at Android 5.0 “Lollipop” on the Galaxy S5, HTC One (M8) with Sense 6 and Google Play Edition, and Moto X (2nd gen), it only makes sense that we do the same for another of 2014’s most important flagships, the LG G3. The update is currently rolling out internationally to the G3, as well as to the AT&T and Sprint variants here in the US. (more…)
According to a report out of the Korea Times, LG will release its new flagship, the G4, in April to avoid the launch of the Galaxy S6. Sources indicate that from a “marketing point of view,” MWC (where Samsung will unveil the Galaxy S6) was not the right place to announce the LG G4, but also because the company wants to wait until the device is fully ready. If that sounds like old news, well, that’s because it kind of is. In January, an LG executive told reporters that they had no plans to introduce the G4 at MWC because they were still perfecting the phone. (more…)
Owners of the LG G3 who have tied themselves to Sprint, your Android 5.0 “Lollipop” update is on the way.

Well, LG just announced the Watch Urbane, an all-metal luxury take on the smartwatch game. The watch, which runs Android Wear, will make its debut at MWC next month in Barcelona.
How is the Watch Urbane “luxury?” According to LG, the watch is “designed for a sophisticated cosmopolitan wearer that delivers unparalleled technology and performance.” If that means little, then know that it features a 1.3-inch “full” circle P-OLED display, like the G Watch R, but has narrower bezels. The body is available in polished silver and gold finish, and is “complemented” by a beautifully stitched leather strap.”
In terms of specs, you are looking at a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400, 4GB storage, 410mAh battery, IP67 dust and water resistance, heart rate sensor, and a body that is 10.9mm thick. (more…)

That title, though. Misleading? Technically, no. Should more Android Wear devices ship in 2015 than in 2014, then there would be a new record, right? So as I said, technically, the first year of sales is the current record, hence the “record number” mention in the title. Technically. Whatever. (more…)
