LG's round watch do-over just went live in the Google Store, and it can be yours for the Apple-esque price of $350. The LG Watch Urbane looks like a smoother, more attractive G Watch R, but that'll cost you an extra $50 apparently (launch prices). It's available in a number of countries, but it won't leave the warehouse for a few days yet.
It may be coming up on 18 months old, but the LG G2 is still a capable device. At this price, though, it's a steal. You can pick up an unlocked G2 (the AT&T model) for $189.99 with free shipping.
LG G2 units on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon have all been updated to Lollipop (or at least begun the process) within the last month. Last, and depending upon coverage in your specific area, very possibly least, is Sprint. According to this Sprint support page, the Android 5.0 over-the-air upgrade is beginning today. You know the drill: check your Settings menu for a manual software refresh, and when that doesn't work, look to your favorite user forum for a side-loaded update file. Read More
There aren't lots of secrets left regarding LG's upcoming flagship phone prior to its unveiling next week on April 28. The company itself has been busy pre-announcing the G4's 16MP f/1.8 camera sensor, leather back, and UX 4.0, before letting the cat out of the bag almost entirely (or inadvertently?). Now a second part of the UX 4.0 teaser reveals more details about the updated software layer that will ship on the phone.
This part 2 explains two features that were hinted at in the first video, namely Ringtone ID and Quick Shot. Read More
LG has officially announced that availability of the Watch Urbane will begin this week in South Korea, with twelve other countries getting it on the Google Store some time before the month is out (as in, before the end of next week). Read More
LG G Stylo is not the name of South Korea's first robot hairdresser. Nope, it's a low-end LG phone designed around a big screen, a stylus, and not a whole lot else. The name, according to LG's press release, is a pun on both "stylus" and "stylish." Feel free to spend a minute or two letting that marketing decision sink in.
Ostensibly a sequel to the G3 Stylus, the G Stylo is probably the phone that circulated as the G4 in those rumors a few months back. Read More
Target's Cartwheel app serves as a way for the company to offer discounts and get you into its stores. Today you can get the LG G Watch for 50% off. Since the retailer is selling the smartwatch for $160, that brings the price down to $80.
This offer is only valid in stores, as Target isn't even selling the G Watch online. You must sign up to redeem the coupon and then scan the Cartwheel barcode at the register. Read More
