Compared to what we’ve seen from the upcoming Moto 360 smartwatch, most other wearable devices have looked pretty underwhelming, namely the LG G Watch, which is going to be made out of plastic, and as previous rumors suggest, won’t have top-line specs.

But new information suggests we could be in for quite a surprise with the G Watch. Hit the break for more.

Moto X Rosewood

Back when the ‘natural wood’ backs for the Moto X were announced, the options included rosewood, teak, ebony and bamboo. However when Moto Maker was launched, rosewood was nowhere in sight, and walnut was an option instead.

But today if you visit Moto Maker you won’t find the walnut option — you’ll find rosewood it its place. The only question is, is the rosewood any different from walnut?

LG G3 for Sprint press render leaks in two colors

by Justin Herrick on
tagged , , , ,


Near the end of last week, we had a look at the Verizon version of the LG G3. With that version, the carrier added some heavy branding along with an alteration to the front panel. Today’s leak of the LG G3 for Sprint shows no changes whatsoever.

As far as I can tell, the only thing indicating this is Sprint would be the LTE icon. That is nowhere near as intrusive as Verizon’s branding. Also, Sprint did not change the entire front panel to be black. Instead, the bottom of it will be identical to the back panel. So it seems that the carrier-manufacturer war is nonexistent here. Although, we are going to assume there will be bloatware.

Samsung testing Android 4.4.3 while working on rolling out Android 4.4.2 to some devices

If you are not an owner of this year’s Galaxy S 5 or even last year’s Galaxy S 4, just know that Samsung does still care about you. While an alleged schedule claims that the aforementioned devices are currently being tested for Android 4.4.3, a multitude of Samsung handsets are nearing an update to Android 4.4.2.

All of the devices prepping for Android 4.4.2 are pegged for the update in either May or June. Some have already gotten the update and others are waiting in the testing stage. Only one device, the Galaxy S III, does not have an estimated time of arrival. This is not the LTE variant, though.

Latest leak still puts HTC One (M8) Ace release next week

by Jeff Causey on
tagged , , , ,


We have already had one leak indicate HTC is planning to release a new smartphone on June 3rd, a phone that many believe will be the HTC One (M8) Ace. A new source out of China indicates the June 3rd date is good for the Chinese market where the device is expected to sell for 3,000 yuan ($481 USD). Based on previously leaked information, the lower price makes sense as the Ace is expected to be a plastic-bodied version of the HTC One (M8).

Besides the downgrade in materials used for the body, the Ace is also expected to get a normal 13MP camera and not HTC’s duo camera system. Otherwise, specs are the same for the two devices. Beyond the date for the Chinese market release, no other information has been revealed yet regarding which markets HTC hopes to bring the device to.

When a carrier like Verizon decides to expand its device selection, everyone wins. Today, we hear that Big Red will be adding the new Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. When? We do not know. There is a very good chance, though, that it arrives alongside the Xperia Z2. Both Sony devices have been said to be heading that way for quite a few months.

If both Sony devices landed on Verizon, would you be interested in either one?

LG G3 for Verizon sign up page appears unofficially, ready to go for Tuesday

by Justin Herrick on
tagged , , ,


We know that HTC was one of the few to master a same-day announcement/release. For the people hoping that LG would somehow do the same, it does not seem so. A sign up page for the LG G3 for Verizon appeared on the carrier’s testman site. This page is reserved for devices that will soon make their way to the official site. The only thing we see here is that the handset is “Coming soon.” What we do know about Verizon’s G3 variant is that it will be stamped with a decent amount of carrier branding.

Are you interested in the LG G3?
