One of the coolest things about Android Wear is the ability to load just about any watch face imaginable. However, sometimes you don’t want a bunch of faces showing up on the watch because it’s kind of a pain swiping through all of them. The pre-installed ones are generally the ones that you are most likely to never use so it would be cool if you can simply hide them from your watch making it a lot easier to find your favorite faces. Well there is a way, and you won’t believe how simple it is to do.
ASUS has just kicked off a competition, in which it’s offering designers a chance to win a ZenWatch by creating a selection of new faces for the device.
If drawing isn’t your forte and you’re not very artistic, don’t worry. There’s another way to enter the contest to win a shiny new smart watch, and that’s simply by voting for your preferred design. ASUS will also be rewarding three participants in the Fan Favorite voting round with a gleaming new unit, too.
Javin Lau, labeled by OnePlus as an urban explorer, was asked by the company to make a blog post showing off photographs taken by the One’s camera and give a review of the device during his trip to NYC last year. Read more
As we get closer and closer to the launch of one of the most highly anticipated devices of 2015, the LG G4 appears to have picked up a WiFi certification by the WiFi alliance, ticking off one more check box on its way to seeing an official unveiling.
The certification was for the LG-H811, which is fairly similar to other rumored G4 model numbers we’ve seen. Aside from confirming that LG’s next flagship will have WiFi radios (which shouldn’t surprise anyone), the certification does note that the device runs Android L, so the G4 will probably be launching with the latest software from Google. Definitely good news. Read more

Back in December, Samsung removed a number of key executives after a not so terrific year. One of the new hires was Kim Seok-pil, who became the head of strategic marketing, which meant he was in charge of all marketing efforts for the Galaxy S 6. Unfortunately he has left Samsung due to health issues.
No only is Samsung ditching Qualcomm in favor of their own homegrown Exynos processor with the Galaxy S 6, it appears Samsung is primed and ready to dominate the application processor (AP) market this year too.
Samsung has already enjoyed a considerable AP business with the likes of Apple, but this year Qualcomm and NVIDIA will be jumping on board as well. Wait a minute! Qualcomm? The very company that Samsung snubbed is now going to be a major customer to them?
