LG showed off the G4 at the end of April, we posted our review a couple weeks later, and we've spent the time since then waiting for the time when folks here in the US can pick the phone up from their network of choice.

Hashtags are a really big deal, guys. You can't just lovingly craft a hashtag by combining two existing words, then let some other company take those words and start using them more effectively than you. Aw, hell no.

Verizon will be ready to take your money in exchange for an LG G4 tomorrow, May 28th. The phone won't be in stores until June 4th, but pre-orders will start shipping before then.

We've seen the Wi-Fi model, the T-Mobile model, and the AT&T model updated with Android 5.0, now it's time for the Verizon version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 to get its turn.

Motorola's DROID line, exclusive to Verizon in the United States, tends to get a few color variants every year. The high-end DROID Turbo, the only entry for the 2014-2015 cycle, already has several: it launched in black, red, and "ballistic nylon," and a blue version has been on sale for some time. By the end of the month shoppers will have three new options.
The new colors are variants of the flat black model, with the metallic parts on the speaker grille, volume rocker and power button, and camera lens ring colored in new trim. Read More
