Apple’s newly unveiled Apple Watch won’t hit the market until sometime early next year, ensuring that developers have time to explore iOS on a smaller screen and build exciting apps that take advantage of the Apple Watch’s new features. The device has certainly created more buzz than any smartwatch that has come before it, of course, and rival companies seem to be taking notice; we’re still several months away from seeing Apple Watches hit consumers’ wrists, but one competitor dropped the price of its brand new Android Wear smartwatch just moments after the Apple Watch was announced.

Anyone considering picking up a smartwatch in the near future is keeping a close eye on the Moto 360, but LG is doing everything it can to get the attention of potential customers. In fact, after launching a solid contender in the G Watch earlier this summer, LG went straight back to the drawing board in order to build an even more competitive entry for later in the year. Now, as Motorola waits to detail its own smartwatch, the G Watch R has already been dated for October 14th. More →
Motorola managed to turn quite a few heads with the Moto 360 smartwatch, an Android Wear device that took the most basic watch design and further enhanced it by adding smart features. However, while Motorola is yet to fully disclose all the details about Moto 360, LG is already out with its second Android Wear smartwatch, which also happens to be a Moto 360 rival, at least when it comes to design: the G Watch R.

It looks like LG has taken notice of the hype being generated by the Moto 360’s gorgeous design. Per Engadget, LG this weekend released an official teaser video for a new smartwatch that shows the outlines of a smartwatch with a round face that looks at first glance to be very similar to the one used in Motorola’s upcoming smartwatch.

LG’s first ever Android Wear device, the G Watch, launched less than three months ago, but The Korea Times is reporting that the company is already prepping a sequel for IFA 2014 next month. According to the report, the new smartwatch is tentatively being called the “G Watch 2,” although the name is subject to change before the wearable hits the market. More →
LG may have intentionally leaked the LG G3 Stylus phablet, a G3 variation meant to compete directly against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 in the following months, but the device won’t be the flagship device fans expect, The Korea Times has learned. More →
Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3rd at IFA 2014, and will likely release the handset in the following weeks in an attempt to beat the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to market. LG is more than aware that the Galaxy Note 4’s arrival may threaten its G3 flagship handset, and the company is apparently already working on a device that’s supposed to neutralize the threat. No, the company will not launch a next-gen G Pro model already. All it needs to compete against the Galaxy Note 4 is a stylus and a slightly bigger display – after all, the G3’s gorgeous screen is almost as big as most phablets. More →
As flagship smartphones continue to grow more giant each year, smartphone vendors have tried to avoid losing customers looking for smaller and more affordable smartphones with “mini” versions of their various hero phones. As it turns out, however, their efforts appear to be failing. More →
BGR reviewed LG’s G3 smartphone earlier this week and we called it the new king of Android phones. The flagship devices features cutting-edge specs and is the first mass-market smartphone to sport a quad HD (2K) display with a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch, making it sharper than anything else on the market by a landslide. Despite the fact that the G3 just launched in the United States last week, interested consumers can already get their hands on this great smartphone for $100 off the standard purchase price. More →
One of the reasons users passionately hate carriers is the bloatware they fill Android devices with, as in many cases a mobile operator’s app collection that comes preloaded on a new handset may be somewhat difficult to remove for an average user. In some countries, there already are laws that require carriers to let their subscribers delete any apps they want on a handset, but that’s hardly a widespread practice. Luckily for Verizon customers, Big Red is willing to make some changes to its approach to bloatware, Droid-Life reports, starting with the LG G3. More →
BGR recently reviewed LG’s new flagship G3, which just launched last week in the United States. We called the phone Android’s new king, supplanting Samsung’s lackluster Galaxy S5, which has been something of a disappointment for many consumers and for Samsung’s bottom line. While LG has a long way to go before it catches up to Samsung in terms of shipments, the company on Thursday reported record smartphone sales for the second quarter. More →
As I walked through Times Square on my way to the office one day last week, something odd caught my eye that made me do a double take. A sizable line had formed outside of the AT&T store as it prepared to open. I have seen people line up outside of that store before, of course, but typically only when a fresh batch of recently launched iPhones is waiting on the other side of the doors.
This time, however, people weren’t lining up to buy a new iPhone. They were lining up for the just-released LG G3.
And truth be told, this is a phone worth lining up for. More →
