LG Announces The Wine Smart, An Android 5.1-Powered Flip Phone With A 3.2-Inch Touchscreen And Pretty Low Specs

Smartphone manufacturers are always looking for ways to differentiate their products from the competition, but this largely consists of UI skins and different build materials. Occasionally someone will stick on decent sound speakers or introduce a way to wake up a phone without using buttons, but much of the experimentation hardly stands out as something that makes one phone stand out against another to someone who doesn't follow phones as their passion.

Eventually someone says screw it—we're gonna kick it old school, and announces an Android-powered flip phone. Samsung has done it a time or two before, and now LG is taking a swing with the Wine Smart, a flip phone that runs Android 5.1.1.

A Root Method For All Regional And Carrier Variants Of The LG G4 Is Live On XDA

Got an LG G4? You lucky dog, you. The impressive technical specs and highly adjustable camera, plus features like a removable battery and a MicroSD card slot, have made it a popular flagship choice for power users. Some of those power users will naturally want to tinker with their phones... and now they can. Over on XDA-Developers, forum poster "thecubed" (who's well-known for previous LG exploits) and his team are showing off a solution that they claim can gain root permissions on all versions of the LG G4, regardless of carrier or international status.

At the time of writing the root method is available for the international H815 10c model, plus the AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile versions.

[Deal Alert] T-Mobile Is Selling The LG G4 For $480, Down From $600 (20% Off)

[Deal Alert] Expansys USA Offers The 32GB International LG G Flex 2 For $329.99 ($170 Off Retail)

The LG G Flex 2 is a pretty good phone, even compared to LG's own flagship G4, and it's a great option if you're tired of all the ever-bigger screens that seem to be the current rage. It's also got a pretty decent price: US Cellular sells it for $50, AT&T sells it for $100, and Sprint is selling it for $200 at the moment, with off-contract prices ranging from reasonable at around $500 to ludicrous at over $700 (thanks, AT&T). If you want a good deal without the carrier ball and chain, Expansys is currently selling the phone for just $329.99.

LG Announces The G4 Beat, A Mid-Range Alternative To The Flagship G4: 5.2" 1080p Screen, Snapdragon 615, 8MP Rear Camera

If you like the style and utility of the G4 but need something a little easier on your wallet, LG has something to show you. The G4 Beat is a cheaper alternative and the sequel to last year's G3 Beat. You'll have to make some notable compromises to get that price down, and unfortunately it's going to be difficult to gauge whether they're worth it - the company hasn't said precisely how much it will cost, though some markets will be getting the phone later this month.

The screen on the G4 Beat is probably one of the best in the mid-range market, a 5.2" 1080p IPS panel.

[Deal Alert] Woot Has A Refurbished LG G Watch For $69.99 with $5 Shipping

If you didn't get in on those crazy $50 deals for the G Watch earlier this year... well, we can't give you that deal again. Sorry, but he who hesitates is lost. But Amazon subsidiary Woot has a deal nearly as good going on for the next week: the original black LG G Watch, refurbished, for $69.99.

T-Mobile's LG G Stylo And LG Leon Are Being Updated To Android 5.1.1, With A Wi-Fi Calling Fix For Good Measure

Well this is a pleasant surprise. The mid-range LG G Stylo and LG Leon both appeared on T-Mobile's lineup just a couple of months ago, and now they're getting their first significant updates. Significant in fact because they're coming to the very latest public build of Android. T-Mobile's support pages for both phones were updated this morning telling users to expect an over-the-air update to Android 5.1.1. Both phones (also somewhat surprisingly) ran Lollipop 5.0 when they first launched on the US carrier.

Both phones are getting additional fixes on top of the extra Android features in 5.1, namely "improved battery life (for Wi-Fi Calling) and display." Exactly what improving the display entails isn't mentioned.
