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. Read More
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. Read More
We've seen some shorter than usual product cycles as of late, but this would be crazy—The Korea Times is reporting that LG will be at IFA in early September with the LG G Watch 2. Yeah, a whole two months after the original G Watch started shipping.
I wrote a review of the G3 just about two months ago, and at the time, I really enjoyed it. While the model I was provided was designed for Korea, it worked on AT&T's LTE network and generally provided a steady wireless experience. I found Wi-Fi connectivity was a bit spotty, though, and there were occasional network hiccups that are to be expected of a piece of hardware not specifically certified for a particular carrier.

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. Read More
The Nexus 5 isn't being retired just yet, so you can still have the latest and greatest Nexus for a few more months. It seems kind of silly to pay full price for it at this point, though. Luckily, the international LTE variant (D821) is on sale today for $329.99 with free shipping in the US. There's no tax unless you're in Missouri, where it's 8%.
The first Android Wear devices have had a few issues related to charging. First the Gear Live charger started breaking, then the pins on the G Watch were corroding, and if you broke either charging mechanism, good luck getting a replacement. Now you can at least replace the G Watch dock by picking up a spare in the Play Store and direct from LG.
Tucked into the end of an otherwise unremarkable promo video for the G3 Beat is a fleeting glance of a new, unannounced variant of LG's latest flagship device. The phone is unapologetically labeled the G3 Stylus. It looks identical to the G3 save for a slightly larger screen and, well, a stylus. This is the first we've heard of this particular phone, though it's hardly a surprising addition to the lineup. Read More
When it comes to Android tablets on US carriers, you're lucky to find anything that isn't Samsung. But LG has been making a determined push as of late - in addition to expanding its G Pad lineup with three new models, they landed last year's G Pad 8.3 on Verizon. Today AT&T announced that it would make the smallest and cheapest current LG tablet, the G Pad 7.0, available on its LTE network starting this Friday, August 8th. Read More
