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.
How about trying an LG G4 before actually buying one? Today, a trial program was announced that allows consumers in the United States to experience the G4 prior to its release next month.
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.

Around a month ago, LG announced a global program that would see 4000 G4 handsets placed in the hands of its fans before the official launch day. If you live in the States and you’ve been waiting for details on when and where you could sign up, you are in luck.
With all the flagship smartphones being released recently, it’s easy to forget that not everyone is in the market for such high-end devices. With that in mind, U.S. Cellular are offering its prepaid customers the wallet-friendly LG Logos handset for $99.
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?
LG has added a new Android Wear app to the Google Play Store, which brings you the ability to see your recent calls, favorite contacts, and the dial pad. Read more
It’s only been a couple of days since LG unveiled its flagship smartphone of 2015, the G4, and today, if a listing on a Dutch retailer’s website is anything to go by, it looks like a smaller variant of the handset is in the works.
There is no better way to be promote your device than targeting competitors negatives. And that is exactly what the site for the LG G4 does. In the display section that highlights its Quad HD (2560×1440) resolution, LG calls out Apple and the iPhone 6 Plus. The smaller iPhone 6 has 1334×750 resolution while the bigger sibling is Full HD (1920×1080). That pales in comparison to the G4, but, as we all know, resolution is not everything. Apple typically creates sharp and accurate displays. Regardless, the G4 does beat the iPhone 6 Plus pixel for pixel.

LG’s G4 features one of the best integrated cameras currently on the market and the South Korean company has chosen a tried and tested way to showcase its capabilities. Earlier today, LG Electronics took to YouTube to demonstrate to the world just how powerful the handset’s shooter is by flying it around the United States attached to a drone. The result is pretty astonishing.
Check it out after the break.
