This resulted in dropped calls and users getting booted out of what they were doing as they saw their G4 units update and reboot in their faces without user permission.

LG announces Disney-themed smartphone for Japan

How big of a Disney fan would you have to be to willingly go and buy a smartphone that is obviously patterned after the "mousey" brand?

Wifi on LG G Watch R enabled via mod

We’ve talked about the fact that LG has not activated the wifi feature on the LG G Watch R when it pushed out the Android 5.1.1 update.

That being the case does not however stop the good people at XDA to create their mods and try activating the feature. That day has arrived, ladies and gentlemen.
