    LG Confirms Second 2015 Flagship, G Pro 3?

    The LG G4 is a fantastic smartphone, one of the best available in fact. However, LG claimed it would be a radical change from last year's G3 and we simply do not think that it is.

    New Metallic Colored DROID Turbo Launched by Motorola

    The Motorola/Verizon DROID Turbo may be having battery problems, as we reported yesterday, but we still think it's a stellar smartphone. One of the best in the mid-range category in fact and while we reported the battery drain issue because... well, it's what we do, we are confident that Motorola and Big Red will get it sorted out quickly with an update.
