According to one of our sources, LG should be lining up a few free gifts for purchasers of the new G4 smartphone. Likely redeemable by any G4 buyer, regardless of carrier, LG should be gifting a free replacement battery, spare battery charger, and 32GB microSD card when you signup through a dedicated promo website.

Yesterday, retired leaker @evleaks told us to expect a never-before-seen LG tablet on Verizon in the near future. He called it the G Pad X, which sounds a lot like a continuation of LG’s G Pad line of tablets that included the G Pad 8.3 LTE. While we still don’t know much in terms of specs, price, or a timeframe for release, Evan did post a picture of the device today. (more…)
As we keep getting deeper into 2015, more flagship devices are being released by all of the big OEM players, and soon, folks will be able to grab the G4 from LG. Even though we don’t have an official date from the company yet, we were fortunate enough to grab a review unit from LG while attending the unveiling event in New York City and have spent the last couple of weeks testing out its every feature, to see if it can compete with the likes of HTC and Samsung.
The G4 has stiff competition in 2015, mainly from Samsung and its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices. The S6 and S6 Edge have been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews, stating its camera and display can’t be beat, but after spending almost two weeks with this phone, it is quite apparent that the G4 can easily carve out a space for itself in the ever-changing Android ecosystem.
This is our LG G4 review. (more…)
According to former leaker extraordinaire, @evleaks, the newly announced and mostly underwhelming Sony Xperia Z4 may be on its way to Verizon, along with a new tablet from LG called the G Pad X. Through a Tweet, in typical minimal @evleaks style, all we are told is that these two devices, along with a new iPad mini and the Desire 526 are “coming” to Big Red. No pictures were included.

The day that LG announced the G4, we reached out to their PR team to get confirmation on whether or not the phone supported Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology. There were mixed reports floating around on G4 unveiling day, so we wanted to get official word. LG told us that it most definitely did not support Quick Charge 2.0. Instead, they were excited to talk about the phone’s semi-quick charge 1.8 capabilities. (more…)
It has been a minute since we last reviewed an Android Wear device. That’s not because there haven’t been decent options introduced since we finished off with the Moto 360, it’s just that there isn’t much to talk about between any of them. They all have to adhere to Google’s standards in the same way, all basically have the same set of specs and features, and are all supposed to run the same version of Android Wear (for the most part).
Sure, you get a square display here and a round one there, or GPS in this one and not in that one, but the experience is all pretty much identical. They perform the same because they all use the same RAM and processor, and their batteries all last about as long as the next because they are basically the same size. If you have seen a review of one Android Wear watch, you know exactly how the next one is going to go. If you are considering one, you really just need to decide if you need a smartwatch in your life and if you like the look of any of them. Seriously, that’s the state of Android Wear.
With that said, we decided to review the LG Watch Urbane because it’s trying to be different. The Watch Urbane wants to be premium and worthy of its arguably high $350 price tag. LG put things like coated stainless steel and a fully-round display on it. They included a genuine leather watch band and a marketing campaign targeting the business elite. They even managed to convince Google to give it the newest version of Android Wear weeks before everyone else, likely as a selling point.
So because of all of that, we spent the last week with it on wrist and wanted to share some final thoughts. This is our LG Watch Urbane review. (more…)
