    Earlier this week we saw AT&T join the growing list of carriers announcing their plans for the start of LG G3 sales, and just like it told us would happen, the phone's available in the company's retail stores as of today – no surprise there. Over at Sprint, though, users were supposed to still have a little bit of a wait on their hands: pre-orders were set to begin today, but the phone itself wasn't scheduled to arrive until next Wednesday, July 16. Well, apparently Sprint didn't feel like being late to the party after all, and has gone ahead with making the G3 available at retail as ...

    Samsung's already delivered an upgraded version of its Galaxy S5 flagship in the form of the GS5 LTE-A edition, a model so far constrained to South Korea that boosts the phone's display up to a quad HD panel while also swapping in a Snapdragon 805 for a little performance kick and support for those titular LTE-A bands. Lately, though, we've been looking for LG to do something like that of its own – not with the quad HD update, sure, since the G3 is already sporting a crazy high-res screen, but with those same LTE-A and Snapdragon 805 upgrades. While that's so far been driven by rumors, ...

    Verizon may have just started pre-orders of its G3, but T-Mobile customers have received what looks to be a better deal. And no, we're not referring to the carrier's Open Beta sweepstakes promotion either -- customers who ponied up cash for T-Mobile LG G3 pre-orders are now seeing their units arrive at their doorsteps. The T-Mobile G3 variant offers zero branding beyond LG's own inclusions other than a fairly minimal "T-Mobile" at the bottom of the back side. The box also doesn't have any immediately conspicuous carrier tramp stamps, though those are definitely buried within the ...

    Slowly but surely, LG has been releasing details about the latest additions to its Android tablet lineup. Back in May it first announced the G Pad 7.0, 8.0, and 10.1, following the introduction of the G Pad 8.3 last summer. While it only had some very basic descriptions of the hardware to offer at first, it followed that news up in June with additional details, like the somewhat disappointing 1280 x 800 resolution all three tablets share. And while that helped complete the hardware picture, LG still wasn't sharing all the specifics when it came to the start of sales, telling us it would ...

    One of the most important parts of the smartphone user experience is the keyboard -- sure, you can swap it out for a custom offering on Android, but the average user probably won't look to do that. To that end, LG has had one of the better offerings. We praised the Smart Keyboard in our G3 review for the feature allowing you to quickly resize it, and now it's picking up new tricks in the latest LG Smart Keyboard update. Five main new features have been added: Emoji Suggestion, Application-based Text Tone Suggestion, Next Word Suggestion, Bilingual Word Suggestion, and Real-time Path Input. ...

    A phone that's been confusing many as of late is the LG G Vista, the not-so-G3 that's allegedly on its way to the Verizon Wireless network. This possibly-rebranded G Pro 2 Lite has shown up in a multitude of renders so far, though we haven't seen specs... until now. Courtesy of @evleaks, we're taking a look at a list of alleged G Vista specs alongside a brand new image of the phone. The phone (with model number VS880) will allegedly have a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 (MSM8926), a 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1280x720 (720p), 1.5 GB of DDR2 RAM, and 8GB of EMMC flash storage. Its ...

    The LG G3 has been one of the most hotly-anticipated Android phones in quite a while without a doubt, and that's largely because of the reputation its predecessor, the LG G2, garnered through its availability on an assortment of carriers in the US. The G3 isn't about to buck that trend, as Verizon has just joined AT&T in announcing information about the phone's debut on its network. These Verizon LG G3 availability details include price along with a date. Without a doubt, the coolest thing about the LG G3 on Verizon is the price -- it comes in at just $99.99 when coupled with a ...

    Only days after the unboxing of Android Wear devices across the United States, it seems Google is hard at work in making these products as reliable as possible. The company pushed a software update to these devices a few days ago, and if you thought those minor bug fixes were all these devices needed, that's far from accurate. The company has just pushed yet another software update today dubbed KMV78X, and given the lack of details of what this update includes, speculation has begun. One of the biggest disappointments is that this software update apparently doesn't fix the paid apps bug ...

    New hardware destined for Verizon has found itself at the center of quite of stories we've brought you lately. For instance, there was that leak earlier this week that sure seemed to reveal Verizon's plans to train staff on an incoming Sony Xperia Z2. We've also been on the lookout for news of the start of Verizon LG G3 sales, as all three other major carriers have already announced their plans. There's still nothing official just yet, but today a series of Verizon rumors attempts to shed some light on what's just about to go down at big red. Word is that Verizon will announce the start of ...

    LG sure seems interested in adding some new members to the LG G3 family, and just last week we saw some images of the G3 Beat for China. But was that five-inch handset the “G3 Mini” we'd been talking about, or a fully separate G3 spin-off? We're still looking for an answer there, but even with that question open-ended, new details on LG's plans continue to arrive, and today we check out a leak that claims to reveal the LG G3S. According to @evleaks, this is the device we've been calling the G3 Mini, and at least the one we're looking at here will be have dual SIM support – that seems ...

    We've unboxed and directly compared the first two official smartwatches from Google (and if you need a refresher, the videos are embedded below for your viewing pleasure). It's gonna take us a few days to rassle up a full review of each new Android Wear device though, so in the meantime we thought those of you who aren't so hip to the YouTubes might like to see the smartwatches in still life in an Android Wear gallery. Below you'll find a series of snapshots taken during the course of filming our latest round of Android Wear videos. The LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live came to us in ...

    Many of you are in the same dilemma: buy one of the available Android Wear watches now, or wait on the hotly-anticipated Moto 360 from Motorola? Since we have the first two in-house, we thought to pit them head to head in a full LG G Watch vs Samsung Gear Live comparison video. At first glance, both of these watches look incredibly similar -- square slabs of Android Wear goodness. But when you look beyond their outer layers, you realize how different the hardware really is. The similarities end for the most part at the OS, IP67 certification, and similar looks. We go over just how much ...

    The feeling of change coming to Google's lineup of Play edition devices has been almost palpable these past couple months. There was that brief hint of a GPe Galaxy S5 back in April, and then last month we noticed half of the six devices making up the series going out of stock, no longer up for purchase. Were new models just about to arrive? Was Google ready to kill-off Play editions entirely in favor of Android Silver or some other new effort? We're still not sure just where this is all headed, but this evening we've witnessed a pretty big shift occurring, as those three out-of-stock ...

    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 ...
