Android Community Weekly Digest: May 2, 2015

April might be over, but the month definitely went out with a bang. And although a lot of things did happen in those 30 long days, we cannot deny the commanding presence of the LG G4, which was finally officially revealed after half a dozen teasers, which actually didn't leave much to be surprised about. What was slightly surprising, however, was Microsoft's revelation that it would let Android apps be built for Windows 10 phones, to some extent. These and more in your latest edition of Android Community's Weekly Digest, covering the period from April 27 to May 2, 2015.

LG G4 highlights stand-out features in first TV commercials

LG is wasting no time in promoting their freshly released new flagship, the LG G4. They have released four TV commercials, with 15 and 30 second versions for each, putting the spotlight on three of the major selling points of the new smartphone: the leather backing, the Quantum IPS display, and the 16MP f/1.8 camera. They've also launched the tag for their marketing campaign for their new baby, which is "See the great, fell the great". Okay, it's not exactly groundbreaking, but sounds pleasant enough right?

Mophie announces Juice Pack for brand new LG G4

The announcement of the specs of the LG G4 is still hot off the presses, and one of the most attractive features of their new flagship is that it has a 3,000 mAh battery that is also replaceable in case it runs out of juice. But if you still need more power than that (as you probably will, tinkering around with your brand new device), then one of the external batteries you can consider is Mophie's Juice Pack, which will be available soon.

LG has been showing off a number of premium products lately.

The classy-looking smartwatch was listed on Google Store a couple of days ago and now we have news that it's finally available in the United States from Verizon and AT&T.

LG G4 vs Samsung Galaxy S6 vs HTC One M9

Now that LG has finally unveiled the G4, all gloves are off in the 2015 flagship showdown. Unless, of course, you're still waiting for the non-Xperia Z4 coming from Sony later this year. But for now, it's time for the big three to face off in the mobile world. In one corner, we have the still premium-looking HTC One M9. In another corner sits the plastic-less Samsung Galaxy S6. And finally, the newcomer, the leather-backed LG G4. Which one will you root for and which one will you buy? As it turns out, it's a close call.

LG G4 from T-Mobile confirmed, get a chance to win one

LG has finally unveiled the G4, its latest flagship, and I'm pretty sure that by now, you've seen a lot of images or have probably got your own hands on the unit. We were able to preview the LG G4 yesterday and we're impressed with the luxurious high-quality leather and its pro camera. Now, most of you are wondering when this smartphone will reach the US shores and T-Mobile is proud to announce that the device will be added to its spring lineup.

LG Tone Pro brings you Bluetooth earbuds with a 3D “neckband”

Bluetooth earbuds are a great invention, if you like to be wireless and fancy free while doing your workouts or while commuting and listening to your music. However, the question of where to put the controls, battery, etc become a problem since they're just made of tiny ear buds, nothing more. LG has found a solution to this problem by giving you the redesigned LG Tone Pro with its 3D neckband, and at the same time, giving you the sound quality that you expect from brands like LG.

LG G4 Hands-on: leather, cameras, quantum physics

Sometimes, a product can be filled with so much features that it might be hard to explain what makes it good without making it sound too good to be true. Luckily for us, LG seems to have obsessed over just a handful of features in its G4 flagship to make our job just a bit easier. If there's anything to take away from this smartphone in the sea of all the bullet points is the LG G4's luxurious rear and its mission to replace your budget digital camera.

LG Watch Urbane now available on Google Store

Finally, the LG Watch Urbane is now available on Google Store. I know a lot of Android fans who would be delighted with the news because next to the round face Moto 360, actually it's even better looking, the LG Watch Urbane is a classic beauty. More people prefer round watches than boxy-squarish ones and the LG Watch Urbane is certainly way ahead than the old smartwatches from LG: the LG G Watch and the LG G Watch R.
