One of the easiest and most effective ways to add some flair to your device without any noticeable bulk is with a wrap. The high-quality wraps offered by Slickwraps.com are fantastic examples of how drastically a wrap can alter the look of a device, and we've teamed up with them to offer a pretty incredible prize package for one lucky winner:

  • 1 LG G3 (the winner will select the carrier/region)
  • 1 One-of-a-kind Android Police wrap (I'm jealous of this one – it's sexy)
  • 30 Additional wraps for the LG G3 (that's one per month for longer than a normal contract!)

Let's break down what you're getting here, because there's a lot to consider.

When I was a kid, my dad used to tinker with model cars. As I got a bit older, he started buying them for me, as well; first, the simple snap-together kits, eventually moving up to ones that required glue, and then on to completely blank canvas vehicles that needed paint, glue, and everything in between. Those took some time, but there was a real sense of accomplishment when it was all finished (assuming everything went smoothly).

I've been using Runkeeper to track my cycling activity for the last eight months or so, and it has never really let me down. That said, I'm always on the lookout for new (or improved) ways to monitor my rides outside of my bike's cyclometer, so when Runtastic reached out to me about taking its new fitness tracking band Orbit for a spin, I was down for the challenge. I've had it for the last few weeks, and so far I think it's a good start.

We've seen Android thrown into plenty of things over the last few years: ovens, refrigerators, set-top boxes, TVs, and a lot more. While some of those ideas are worth pursuing, there are certain ideas that just make sense. The Skully AR-1 motorcycle helmet is one of those ideas.

To describe it over-simplistically, it's a smart helmet. But if you drop all the buzzword garbage and actually take a closer look, you can see that it's much more.

Every once in a while, a truly cool idea ends up on Kickstarter, and LightFreq is one such case. It's simple, really: a Bluetooth speaker married with a Phillips Hue-like light bulb. So, a color-changing speaker in your ceiling. Yep, I'm already sold.

There will of course be companion apps available for both iOS and Android that not only control the music and lights, but also allow the handset to work with LightFreq for an in-house intercom system.

If you're in the market for a mid-range AT&T handset that kind of looks like the LG G3 but not really, today may be your lucky day. Well, August 22nd may be your lucky day, because that's when AT&T is going to start offering the LG G Vista. Not familiar with the Vista? No worries, here's the rundown:

  • 5.7-inch 1280x800 display
  • 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400
  • 1.5GB RAM
  • 8GB storage, microSD card slot
  • 8MP rear shooter
  • Removable 3,200mAh battery
  • Android 4.4.2

It's a pretty run-of-the-mill mid-ranger spec-wise, but it's packing several of LG's G3 features, like Mini View, Dual Window, KnockOn and KnockCode, and several others.

Gaming is one of the things Amazon touted quite a bit for Fire TV, and the company released an exclusive title called Sev Zero to show off everything its set-top box can do. The game is a mixture of tower defense and action shooter, which offers a unique blend of gameplay.

The company also released a companion app for the Kindle Fire HDX, which allows a two player co-op experience where the second player offers air support for player one.

When it comes to affordable, off-contract handsets, BLU is one of my favorite phone manufacturers on the market. The company offers a myriad of devices to fit a wide range of budgets, and today's release features a couple of new handsets for those looking to pick up a smartphone for around $150 or less. As always with BLU, that's an off-contract price.

These two new phones – the Studio C Mini and Studio 5.0 C HD – are made to compete directly with Motorola's budget devices, the Moto E and Moto G, respectively.

If you're looking for a good, affordable device, it's hard to beat the Moto G. It's running KitKat, has a very one hand-able 4.5-inch display, and now comes with LTE. On Amazon, this little guy will set you back $220, but it looks like Best Buy is trying to get rid of some backstock, as it recently dropped the price to $180. That's an LTE-enabled Motorola device running KitKat for less than two hundred monies.
