LG Heart Rate Earphones clear the FCC

At CES this year, we got a chance to go hands-on with LG’s newest offerings. While many amazing tech was on display, one of the standouts were earphones that monitor your heart rate. The device has now cleared the FCC, and could make its way to store shelves soon.

LG G Flex: going one-handed with the 6-inch display

We've spent a fair bit of time with the LG G Flex during the initial hands-on. We also shared our full review shortly after. But with that being said, the LG G Flex is a unique phone, and to be honest, it has been sort of hard to put down since the review has wrapped. To that point, there are some solid features, one of which is how LG is trying to make things a bit easier for one-handed use. Because, as many will realize, a phone with a 6-inch display cannot be described as small.

LG patent melds wearables and styluses in a bendable smartwatch

In what could be one of the strangest unions of technologies, LG has filed a patent that is practically a flexible capacitive stylus with some smartwatch functionality, or a smartwatch band with a stylus tip. It remains to be seen whether this patent actually amounts to anything, though the design does raise some interesting points.

LG G Flex: using the multi-window feature

With larger devices like the LG G Flex, multi-window utility is an option many take advantage of. By splitting the screen in two (figuratively, we’re not cutting things in half, here), we can get a snippet of multiple things without having to navigate between apps. Fun and functional, some are still in the dark about how this all works, and why it’s one of the coolest features on the G Flex.

How to: Take a screenshot on the LG G flex

With the LG G Flex, the volume and power buttons are around back. Situated just under the camera, it makes for a disorienting experience until you get used to it. There are also those situations where you may think twice about how to do something simple, like take a screenshot. With LG’s newer devices, there are a few native ways to accomplish this, and some apps to consider as well.
