You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

This week LG revealed the Watch Urbane 2, a smartwatch with the ability to connect to a 4G LTE data network. This part of the watch is a gimmick. If that's what it takes to get you to purchase a watch that is, by all means, one of the nicest smartwatches on the market, then so be it. But you don't actually need it. Using Android Wear as Google intends it, (read: without rooting and adding odd apps not approved by Google Play), there's no real reason for you to be using LTE-speed data.

LG Watch Urbane 2 now has both Android Wear and LTE

When LG unveiled the classy Watch Urbane, it was quickly followed by the independent Watch Urbane LTE. The latter was almost perfect except for one thing. It ran on LG's own webOS platform, which isn't exactly the most widely used mobile platform around. Now LG is correcting that "mistake" by putting out the 2nd edition of the LG Watch Urbane. As fashionable as its Android Wear predecessor, this second generation not only bumps up some of the specs, it also now carries it own network weight with 4G connectivity.

LG Gram laptop looks to topple MacBook Air from ultra-light throne

LG has just announced its first line of laptops to come to the US, and they're aiming one rival in particular: Apple's MacBook Air.

It's shipping with Windows 10, and even better is that it has Microsoft's "Signature Series" label, which means it comes with just the pure OS and no 3rd-party bloatware.

LG teases would could be the “V10” for October 1

It will just be two days after Google reveals its Nexus smartphones, one of which is being made by the LG as well, but the Korean manufacturer seems quite confident enough to hold its own unveiling event on October 1.

LG G4 is No. 2 in DxOMark’s camera benchmarks

LG G4 is No. 2 in DxOMark’s camera benchmarks

At long last, the LG G4 finally gets a proper photography benchmark. It still boggles the mind why DxOMark took this long to give LG's flagship a try, considering it was quick to try out the Moto X Style (probably with a little help from Motorola). Saving the best for last might come to mind. However, the LG G4 isn't actually the best but it is the next best, with a DxOMark score of 83, putting it right next to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge in the Top 3 range.
