    With the iPhone 6 launched, and IFA behind us, there's not a lot in the way of high-profile smartphone events coming up for the next several months. CES looms ahead in January, and while there are a few devices between now and then we're looking forward to, this can still feel like a bit of a slow period. A year ago, though, fall became ground zero for the arrival of the curved smartphone, with both Samsung and LG announcing such plans. But where have curved screens taken us in the days since the Galaxy Round and G Flex? We've seen curved smartwatches, like the new Gear S, as well as ...

    Has it been a week already? Last Monday we were still gearing-up for IFA 2014, preparing ourselves for the torrent of phone, tablet, and wearable news that would consumer our lives for the days to come. We had high expectations going in, having heard no shortage of rumors for what new products would be on the expo floor, and that's not even touching upon the many launches we saw in the weeks leading up to the conference, from manufacturers too eager to wait for IFA itself. With our crack team of Taylor Martin and Michael Fisher on the ground, we've brought you hands-on report after ...

    With IFA 2014 dying down, it's about to return to business as usual in the smartphone world. Well, after tomorrow's little event from this upstart smartphone maker out west, anyway. But now that you have a chance to take a breather and let all the hardware launches of the past week start to sink, we wanted to remind you of a contest you've still got time to enter. Last Monday, we started our latest round in the Don't-Tell-Us-It's-Almost-Fall-Yet Pocketnow Summer of Giveaways. With the help of those skin-making geniuses over at dbrand, we're hooking a lucky Pocketnow reader up with a brand ...

    Since we already had our LG G3 comparison unit busted out for the previous comparison, we thought we'd put it against a newcomer from its home country. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 might be bigger, and sport a pointing device many frowned upon initially with the o/g Note, but if you get passed that, these two smartphones are actually worth comparing. They're not really in the same class, these two: one is a phablet/Note-class phone, with a pointing device, aimed at heavy multitasking and creative usage, the other one is a flagship that packs (packed) the best LG's technology was able to ...

    Regardless of which side you're on -- whether you believe that the Xperia Z3 is a small incremental update over the Xperia Z2, or, the other side, that is completely wowed by the new Sony flagship -- you'll love this one: a Sony Xperia Z3 vs LG G3 video that takes a look at these two phones that are fundamentally different, but similar in so many aspects. The LG G3 is already big on the market, and it had a lot of time to become one of LG's best selling phones, and for good reason. We looked beyond the pretty Quad HD screen with the occasion of our full review, to give it a nice score! ...

    Our little game of catch-up-on-this-summer's-new-phones continues at IFA in Berlin today, and following run-ins with models like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, we continue to look for devices launched in the weeks and months leading up to the trade show, which we just haven't had the chance to check out in person yet. LG'S G3 remains the company's flagship Android, but in the time since it debuted, we've seen it joined by a few new family members. Back in July, LG gave us the G3 Beat/S as a "mini" version of the G3 itself, and today we had the opportunity to directly compare the G3 S against ...

    Today's a big day for Android Wear: the Moto 360, one of the two smartwatch models to officially kick-off the platform all the way back in March (has it been that long already?) has finally arrived, and sales of the model open today. But in taking its sweet time to get here, another round smartwatch has jumped into the race, and last week's launch of the LG G Watch R brings Motorola maybe its most direct competition yet. Will the LG model manage to impress us in quite the same way as the 360 has managed to captivate? We went hands-on with the G Watch R at IFA in Berlin to lean for ...

    Just over a week ago, LG got ahead of the curve on all these IFA launches with news of its latest wearable, the circular-faced Android-Wear-running G Watch R. Now, we may be just hours away from getting the scoop on the start of Moto 360 sales, helping to scratch that round-smartwatch itch, but what if you've been spending this past week dreaming about the G Watch R, instead? When might you hope to be able buy this guy? At the time of its launch, LG wasn't sharing any details beyond “early fourth quarter,” but today we're finally learning the specifics, with word that the smartwatch ...

    Oh, crap. You thought you had a solid grip on your phone as you pulled it out of your pocket, just as you have thousands of times before, but this time your fingers wavered, your hold gave way, and your shiny Nexus 5 found itself careening down to the ground for an up-close and personal introduction to your hard tile floor. Now you've either got a very expensive paperweight or a spiderweb of broken glass between you and the display. Well, lovely. Some smartphone manufacturers have recently started easing up on their warranty coverage restrictions, replacing handsets for free even when the ...

    Though there are only two Android Wear devices available for purchase at this time, it's about to get busy this week with IFA 2014 kicking off. Motorola will be unveiling the Moto 360, Asus the ZenWatch, Sony the SmartWatch 3... and oh, LG the G Watch R. Seeing as all of these will probably run Android Wear, it's going to start being hard for OEMs to get sales, so Best Buy has started running an LG G Watch Deal in an effort to get as many sales as possible. Now that we've got the caveats of this deal out of the way, let's talk more about the G Watch itself. It's still by all means a ...

    We knew that LG was prepping its G Watch R a few days ago, but it was unexpected that the official announcement would come so soon. Well, that's now upon us, so it's now time to gaze into the internals of this sucker to see what it's all about in our comprehensive LG G Watch R specs list. This watch is pretty par for the course when it comes to smartwatches, and it should be able to handle anything Android Wear can muster with ease. With just a few Android Wear watches on the market as of now, it's tough to gauge what exactly the ideal specs list, but we should get a bit better of an idea ...

    LG looks like it's saving nothing in terms of device launches for the IFA 2014 trade show next week. It's already gone official with the L Fino and L Bello entry-level smartphones, the midrange G3 Stylus, and is now announcing for real the LG G Watch R, a Moto 360 competitor if there's ever been one. The smartwatch is allegedly the first watch-style wearable in the world to be using circular P-OLED display tech and utilize 100% of the watch face (sorry Moto 360, that black bar at the bottom is really costing you). Speaking of that display, it's a 1.3-inch panel. And while we're on specs, ...

    Who's ready for a little Funkausstellung? We're about a week away from the start of IFA 2014, where mobile device manufacturers from all around the world will descend on Berlin to show off their newest products. The F in IFA –Funkausstellung– may translate as “radio show,” but the expo has evolved far beyond its early audio roots to feature the very latest in smartphones, tablets, and wearables. The Pocketnow team will be on the ground in Germany to share with you everything IFA 2014 has to deliver (or at least, everything worth seeing) but before we send our boys abroad, we wanted ...

    This past weekend, LG surprised us with a new IFA 2014 teaser, revealing its round-faced wearable, the G Watch R. With Motorola's Moto 360 yet to go up for sale, LG threatened to swoop in and steal some of the 360's buzz, not only by making a circular smartwatch itself, but also by seemingly achieving a fully-round display, rather than the very-nearly-there 360 with its little dead space at the bottom. But while this G Watch R is very much happening, we haven't had a great look at the hardware just yet – the first teaser video just offered blips and flashes of a render. LG continues to ...
