Android Wear 5.1.1 walkthrough on the LG Watch Urbane [Video]

LG_Watch_Urbane_Main_Gold_And_Silver_TA

Google announced a very sizable update last month, which is coming to all Android Wear watches. At the time of this post, it’s only available for the LG Watch Urbane because I am assuming Google is working out any bugs before they release it in full. The Watch Urbane comes with Android Wear 5.1.1 out of the box, but it received another update shortly after pairing.

I figured it would be a good idea to highlight (in the video below) the changes with 5.1.1 as they will operate the same on all watches. All new features, with the exception of Wi-Fi support, will be available on all Android Wear watches. So let’s get to it.

Right on time, the LG Watch Urbane gets the teardown treatment

lg_watch_urbane_teardown_01

The iFixit team is back with their latest teardown in which they took some time to figure out how easy it may be to repair an LG Watch Urbane. The LG Watch Urbane has been described as the closest a smart watch has come to being similar to a traditional watch and in many respects, the iFixit teardown seems to bear this out. Unfortunately, replacing a cracked screen will be a bit of a challenge, although the device managed to score a very respectable 7 out of 10 on the iFixit team’s scale where 10 is the easiest to repair.

Smartphone Camera Shootout: Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4

Samsung_Galaxy_S6_LG_G4_Cameras_01_TA

Reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge have been pretty positive with the camera being a standout feature. However, last week LG announced their newest flagship, the G4, and they feel they might have one-upped Samsung. The Galaxy S6 and Edge sport an industry first f/1.9 aperture, giving them tremendous results in low light. It hasn’t even been a month and now LG has trumped Samsung by giving the G4’s camera an aperture of f/1.8. It might not sound like much of a difference to you, but LG believes it is. On top of that, they threw in auto laser focus, and OIS 2.0, which gives you a 3rd axis for even better image stabilization.

Android users have been craving for smartphones that sport cameras that can get the job done, so it’s nice to see both LG and Samsung pushing the envelope here. Is there a clear winner? Did LG trump Samsung?
