    If you're like us, you're already enjoying your unboxing experience with whichever Android Wear device you chose. Google's approach to wearables is currently gaining traction, and as such, finding compelling apps for these devices will be quite difficult for the next couple of weeks. That being said, there are some really neat apps already available, though it seems that Google is having some trouble allowing you to install them. A new bug that was reported over the weekend claims that early adopters of Android Wear devices are struggling to get paid applications installed on their ...

    Neither is the smashing circular sensation of the Moto 360, but neither is by any means ugly – and aesthetic considerations aside, sometimes there's something to be said for promptness. The LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live are the two devices gracing our review desk on today's Android Wear unboxing, the smartphone accessories Google has chosen to redefine the role of a smartwatch. We're not strangers to wearables around these parts, of course. Some of us backed the Pebble long before that device and its descendents came to our professional attention, while others put their money on ...

    AT&T's accepting LG G3 pre-orders as of tomorrow. Sprint's taking them starting July 11. And no matter which major carrier gets your business, it won't be long before you have the chance to add a G3 to your plan. But darn it, some of us just aren't very patient, and when we're talking about a smartphone with a big, beautiful quad HD display, we want it now, not whenever those pre-orders come around to being fulfilled. If you've got a G3 itch that badly needs scratching, you might want to turn to a retailer rather than a carrier, and this evening we hear about availability coming to GSM ...

    Smartwatch fans have been looking forward to the start of sales of Android Wear devices since the platform was first announced this spring, and two weeks back we saw things get underway with the addition of the LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live to the Google Play Store's device listings. That's well and good for what it is, but if you'd like to get your hands on the G Watch a little quicker, or maybe just check it out in the flesh before dropping $230 on the wearable, your chance is arriving, as LG announces the start of retail G Watch availability in nations around the globe. AT&T ...

    Last Thursday saw the second big US carrier share its plans for the arrival of LG's G3, as Sprint revealed details about its start to G3 pre-orders, coming up this Friday. That followed T-Mobile’s earlier announcement, leaving Verizon and AT&T as the holdouts. Over the weekend we got to check out G3 renders from all four of the networks, but didn't pick up on any updates about AT&T or Verizon availability. Today, AT&T finally goes official with its G3 sales details, while also welcoming the G Watch to its shelves. Pre-orders for the G3 and orders for the G Watch open at ...

    There are two versions of the LG G3: one that sports 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, and one with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. We've already seen how the US carrier models will look like -- and that Sprint will apparently have no intrusive branding on the device -- but we had no information on which version the network operators will go for. Apparently, the Sprint LG G3 will be the highest end version, according to recent leaks. The carrier will start taking pre-orders on July 11, with the phone shipping on July 18, and, the screenshots below seem to confirm the 3GB of RAM / ...

    The LG G3 did well in our review, being one of the 2014 Android flagships to want, together with the HTC One M8, Samsung Galaxy S5, and Sony Xperia Z2. However, our review was based on opinions formed while using a South Korean version of the device, with an American carrier unit not being available. That being said, thanks to @evleaks, we're seeing all (major) four US carrier models being leaked in press renders, as seen above. From left to right, we're seeing the upcoming Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile versions. Interestingly, of all four devices, only Sprint version (as ...

    It wasn't long after LG formally announced the G3 that carriers were chiming in with news of their interest in offering the smartphone for sale; within hours of launch, we had heard from all four big players in the US. But at the time, there just wasn't a lot of info about how that availability would manifest – they were talking plans for a summer release, but that's about as good as we got. Well, with summer now here, we're starting to lean about those specifics; T-Mobile announced the start to pre-orders this past Monday, with the phone actually landing on July 16. Now it's Sprint's ...

    A couple of weeks ago we assumed that the LG G Vista renders that emerged belonged to the LG variant of its flagship, the G3. As it turns out, these are two different phones, and you can notice the subtle differences in their designs when you compare the placement of the Verizon logo, among other minor details. More renders emerge of the G Vista today, though now that we can see the back of the phone, this just becomes more confusing. Since the rumors point to this LG G Vista being a tad wider than the LG G3, it could be that this is the Verizon G Pro 2 Lite that was recently rumored. ...

    Android Wear devices are only just getting into the hands of users. If you got your order in the minute the watches hit Google Play, your shipment may be on its way to your doorstep right now, and devs who attended Google I/O have already brought their smartwatches home. With the Android Wear floodgates now open, the wearables are quickly starting to fall into the same sort of routine we're used to from Android phones, and as if to prove that point, a pair of software updates has already become available. Both the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live are receiving small updates bringing ...

    Each of these phones is their respective manufacturer’s best phone, to date. Their internals are among the highest-end on the market. So, which one would you choose? The phone made by a company that already has a history of making good smartphones, or the phone from a relatively young manufacturer that wants to prove itself on the market? We hope our LG G3 vs Oppo Find 7 video will help you make up your mind. A phone from China, and a phone from South Korea, both the best that LG and Oppo have ever built, both with exceptional specs on paper. In real life, neither of the two disappoints, ...

    Trademark applications are often a good indicator of what a company wants to name its upcoming products, and LG has just submitted applications for a handful of names. Most of these this time around (unlike last time) actually do make sense -- we're seeing familiar faces like the G3 Beat and G3 Vista, among other ones which are a bit more curious. Let's go over G3 Beat first. This is allegedly the name for the Chinese "mini" G3, so it's natural that the OEM would want to trademark the name for safekeeping. This phone will probably be a mid-ranger, with specs such as a 5-inch 720p display ...

    Google's Android L release so far has differed from the norm in as many ways as possible -- for one, an early developer preview version has been made available for non-public consumption until the general release comes around this fall. Now, an AOSP push has begun for the Android L developer preview source code for most Nexus devices. To be clear, as Googler Bill Yi puts it (in the source link below), this is "not a full platform update and only for reference." That means, yes, custom ROMs based off of this code won't be possible quite yet. For the devs among you, we're sure you want ...

    Samsung's Galaxy S5 LTE-A edition – or the GS5 “Prime,” if you like – went official last month, and while it remains a South Korean exclusive, the allure of its 2K display and Snapdragon 805 SoC were just too much for us to pass up, compelling us to get our hands on one of these guys. While all this has been happening for Samsung, over on the LG side of fence we've been hearing about a similar upgrade coming to the G3. Sure, it already has that quad HD screen, but moving from its Snapdragon 801 to another 805 sure sounded like a move in the right direction. As we wait to see what ...
