LG wants to make sure you know that it's announcing a new watch at IFA in Berlin. In addition to the movie trailer-style teaser released on Sunday, the image below showed up on the official LG Mobile Facebook page late last night. It's undeniably the G Watch R, which sports a "completely round" screen, in contrast with some watches that are taking their sweet time to come to the retail market.
Earlier this month LG let the G3 Stylus slip out in an ad, though at the time we weren't exactly sure what the device was. Now we know, because LG made it official. Spoiler: it's not as cool as you hoped. I promise.
So the G3 Stylus looks like a G3 with a stylus, and it packs some of the features that makes the G3 cool, but it's not a G3 with a stylus.
Man, eBay just loves those Nexus deals. The latest is for a new 16GB Nexus 5, not refurbished or restocked, for $324.99 ($25 off the Play Store price). With the free shipping available from this seller and no sales tax charged for buyers outside the state of New Jersey, it's approximately $80 cheaper, plus or minus a few dollars depending on location. Note that this is the standard D820 model. If you haven't picked up a Nexus 5 yet, this is the best price we've seen in a while.
We've often talked about the benefits of having Avast Mobile Security installed, which includes its top-notch anti-theft solution. It looks like a lot of folks listened, because the app just hit 100 million downloads. As a celebration of this milestone, we've teamed up with Avast to give away not one, not two, but five Nexus 5s to five lucky winners. A premium Avast license will also be included with each device, so you can keep your new gadget safe.
Love it or hate it, the LG G3 is one of the top flagship devices of 2014. With a set of specs that will make even the most jaded Nexus warrior a bit jealous, it's no wonder that the handset has gained a few fans. Unfortunately, LG's software customizations still leave a lot to be desired, and many users have turned to rooting their phone to take back some level of control over the experience.
LG would like to remind you that the G3's Quick Circle case is definitely not copying the S View case. I mean, look—no corners. As we all know circles are totally in right now, and you can get a bit more functionality out of the Quick Circle case for the G3 with Quick Circle Apps.
One of the weaknesses of the LG built-in functionality is that you need to use the stock apps, but Quick Circle Apps gives you a little more freedom.
