808s & Snapdragon Heartbreak: LG's G4 May Forego The 810 Drama In Favor Of More Conservative Chipset

We're not in the habit of posting pre-release benchmark results here at Android Police, because they're easy to fake. Really, really easy. But, they also turn out to be legitimate in many cases, because manufacturers and testers do use benchmarking applications on unreleased devices, and perhaps even do so intentionally to drive up hype in the enthusiast community before a launch. Still, the risk of counterfeitery means we generally aren't going to post such things unless we have corroborating evidence, and today, we do - sort of.

A GFXBench result for a device codenamed F500x, AKA the G4, appeared recently with an interesting specification sheet attached - one that did not include a Snapdragon 810.

Sony Xperia Z5 Compact Review: The Only Small Phone That Matters

I remember not that long ago thinking that a 4.7-inch phone screen was pretty large. How could they get bigger than that and still be usable? Surely this is the end of the road... and here we are a few years later and the Xperia Z5 Compact is considered diminutive at 4.6-inches. When I say this phone is small (and it is) I mean it's small compared to every other Android flagship.

Consumers have voted with their dollars and told OEMs they want big phones, leaving the Xperia Compact series as your last bastion of tiny flagship phones. When a device basically owns a niche, it doesn't have to be amazing, it just needs to be.

Leak Suggests LG G5 Will Have A Secondary Ticker Display And 'Magic Slot' Expansion Port

LG has continued to offer more modular phones that appeal to those offended by Samsung's move to unibody devices. A new leak from VentureBeat's Evan Blass (AKA @evleaks) claims that the G5 will take things a step further by adding a "Magic Slot" for installing new hardware modules, as well as a secondary display a la the V10. The report also backs up a few details we've heard before.

Google I/O 2013: Google's To-Do List This Year

Google I/O is coming! We'll know about all of Google's new projects in just 2 short agonizingly long weeks. While we desperately count the days until May 15th, we thought it would be a great idea to take stock all of the things we've caught wind of lately.

Calling this an "I/O Preview," sounds a little too certain. I'm not predicting everything here will come out at I/O, this is just a list of everything we know Google is working on - their "To-Do" list. Just like any to-do list, Google could cross something off and release it, or endlessly procrastinate, or completely cancel something.

LG Watch Urbane Review: $350 Buys You The Nicest Android Wear Watch Yet, If That's Something You Want

LG's newest smartwatch, the LG Watch Urbane, costs $350. So let me just throw it out there now: judging LG's new Watch Urbane from a value perspective is sort of completely silly. When it comes to value, I don't think any Android Wear watch has especially great appeal - after all, you're paying as much or more for one than you would a relatively inexpensive smartphone, a smartphone that does many, many more things. But the Watch Urbane has even less value appeal than most Wear devices (not that this is at all fatal to its success as a product).

If you really care about value, the Sony SmartWatch 3 with its Wi-Fi, GPS, and NFC are right here for $100 less than the Watch Urbane (if not less than that if you get it on sale).

[Frozen Assets] LG's G4 and V10 bootloop problems result in a class-action lawsuit

LG's bootloop problems have become the butt of the joke online over the past few months. While Samsung was busy cooling down the fire of its Note7 fiasco, LG was getting heat over its freezing LG G4 and V10, among other devices (like the Nexus 5 and 5X). Many reports were surfacing of these phones getting stuck in a bootloop vicious circle, turning on and off, not properly booting, and leaving the owners without any recourse but to ask for a replacement unit... if they were still under warranty.

Now these owners are seeking their day in court thanks to a new class-action lawsuit filed to the California federal court.

Supposed Early LG G4 Press Render Leaks On Twitter

The LG G3 was heavily leaked before its announcement, and so was the G2 before that. So long-time Android enthusiasts probably won't be too surprised to see that a G4 leak is already hitting Twitter.

This one comes from @OnLeaks, an account created by the guy who runs, a French blog that posted what ended up being an accurate image of the HTC One M9. The current leak shows the back of what is allegedly an early version of the G4.


@OnLeaks says the device comes in at 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9mm and that it will have a removable back.
