LG Watch Urbane LTE hands-on: Gorgeous, but a bit bulky

A few days before the MWC 2015 madness started, LG surprised smartwatch fans by announcing a one of the best-looking smartwatches yet, at least until Huawei’s watch was unveiled: the LG Watch Urbane and its SIM-card carrying cohort, the LG Watch Urbane LTE. After taking the later for a brief stroll at MWC, I can say that it looks and feels good on the wrist, but it’s also a little bulky. Not to mention the fact that it runs on LG’s “Wearable Platform,” which might take some adjusting to. More →

AT&T is the first carrier to confirm it will sell the world’s sexiest new Android watch

Smartwatch fans have precious few choices when it comes to devices that don’t look like a terrible cross between a Swatch watch and a Casio wrist calculator. Beginning soon, however, that is going to change. Apple is expected to announce Apple Watch launch details during its event on March 9th, and the device will begin shipping in April, according to earlier comments made by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

And soon, U.S. consumers will have another beautiful choice for a smartwatch thanks to a new announcement from LG and AT&T on Sunday. More →

It’s been a long time coming, but many of the latest flagship Android devices have finally received their respective Lollipop updates. Android 5.0 Lollipop has some issues of its own, but there’s no question that the UI is a major visual improvement over its predecessor.

LG Watch Urbane Video

Apple Watch’s only real competition looks stunning in this new video

Apple Watch’s only real competition looks stunning in this new video

We do not yet know everything there is to know about Apple’s upcoming debut entry into the smartwatch space, the Apple Watch. What we do know, however, is that rival smartwatches to date have not been well received at all at this point. Total quarterly global smartwatch sales are still said to number in the hundreds of thousands at this point, so Apple will almost certainly surpass lifetime smartwatch sales of any given rival during the Apple Watch’s first few months of availability.

To be fair, smartwatches have been pretty lackluster until now, and there really isn’t much of a reason to consider buying any device that has been released at this point. As we recently reported, however, that is about to change. More →

Video evidence released in case of LG exec allegedly sabotaging a Samsung washing machine

Welcome to the weird and wild world of South Korean consumer electronics giants. While Apple and Samsung’s court battles are certainly the most widely publicized, LG now finds itself in Samsung’s sights for an entirely different reason: According to Samsung’s allegations, LG executive Jo Seong-Jin, and two other LG employees intentionally damaged a Samsung washing machine in a German store.

The evidence supporting Samsung’s case was compelling enough that an indictment has been issued, and now some of the most damning evidence may have come to light. LG on Monday released some video evidence it claims exonerates Jo, however Samsung says that the evidence has been tampered with. More →

LG Watch Urbane Vs Apple Watch

Apple Watch finally has a worthy Android competitor, and we want one immediately

Apple Watch finally has a worthy Android competitor, and we want one immediately

We have never seen a worse name for a smartwatch. We could try for days and probably not come up with anything worse than “LG Watch Urbane.” More importantly, however, we have never seen a more beautiful Android Wear smartwatch, and it looks like the soon-to-be-released Apple Watch will actually have some real competition when it launches in the coming months.

LG’s 2015 flagship phone will feature an insane 3K resolution display

If you thought that 2K resolution is a bit too much for a smartphone featuring a display that’s barely bigger than 5 inches diagonally, then you might be shocked to learn handset makers aren’t stopping there. MyLGPhones has discovered a file on LG’s website that seems to indicate the upcoming LG G4’s display will have a 3K resolution. More →

It’s been a long, arduous wait, but the good news is that it’s nearly over.
