LG G4 begins its global journey

If you've been on the edge of your seats waiting for LG's flagship to finally land on the market, then the wait is over for you. Somewhat.

LG Watch Urbane Review – All that glitters isn’t gold

You can understand why Android enthusiasts might be resentful of the Apple Watch.

Into the fray wades the LG Watch Urbane, promising genteel luxury instead of geek chic, and first to offer the very latest version of Android Wear itself, complete with a number of hotly-anticipated updates. $349 is a lot to ask for an Android smartwatch, though: is the Urbane worth it?

It’s the LG G4’s turn to get a brutal drop test

The Samsung twin flagships have had their fun, sort of, so now it's LG's turn in the spotlight. Considering the rivalry between the two Korean companies, it feels fair to subject the LG G4 to the same torture, er, tests as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. After all, the G4 is not as fragile-looking as the other two. So will it blend? Or rather, will it crack? YouTube user TechRax, who claims to have been "smashing technology since 2011", for the sake of science, of course, finds out.

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.

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.
