Praise be: The LG G4 has Quick Charge 2.0 after all

LG has confirmed that the G4 smartphone does, in fact, support Qualcomm's rapid charging system for speedier top-ups, despite initially claiming the feature was absent.

LG G4 Review – The hero Android needs

Life’s not so good when you’re stuck in the shadow of a big rival with deep pockets, but if anything can drag LG into the sunlight, it’s the new G4. LG’s flagship Android smartphone for 2015, the G4 takes what we loved about the G3 before it - and made it into the Android-to-have among those in the know - and hits the boost button. Screen, camera, performance, all have been in line for an upgrade. Nonetheless, the rest of the mobile world hasn’t stood still either, so does the G4 have what it takes to push back against Samsung’s excellent Galaxy S6?

We’d venture to say you tearing into your smartwatch is not a good idea. So, really — don’t try this at home. The iFixit team makes things look really simple, yes, but please don’t take a knife and tweezers to your gear. Even though iFixit gave the LG Watch Urbane a pleasant 7 out of 10 score in their teardown, don’t go poking around the smartwatch just yet.

LG G4 full specs revealed

This morning the LG G4 was shown off in New York City by LG, complete with a new leather back, a smarter camera, and a familiar face.

It's clean - cleaner, that is, as is the trend as of late, it would seem. The LG G4 ready to roll with a 3,000 mAh removable battery as well.

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

LG G4 hands-on: Quantum physics, leather and a smarter camera

There’s never been a tougher time to introduce a new smartphone, but LG thinks it has a hit on its hands with the new LG G4 for 2015. Building on last year’s G3 with a better camera, more high-quality materials, and a cleaner Android install, it may have a vaguely nonsensical tagline - “See the great. Feel the great” - but marketing hyperbole can usually be forgiven if the device lives up to expectations. I spent some time with the G4 to see why LG is talking Quantum Mechanics and movie theaters for its new flagship.

Following in the tradition of its Tone series, the new LG Tone Pro has that same basic form, but LG adds a bit more pizazz to the table. These include a somewhat flatter shape to the "neck brace" part of the headset, as well as chrome accents that serve not only aesthetic purposes but are also quick buttons for taking calls or pausing music.
