Is it now time to buy an Android Wear smartwatch?

LG_G_Watch_R_Camping_Watch_Face

Although Android Wear appears to be a relatively new concept for us, it’s been around for a while. Since it was first shown off in late June and subsequently made available in July, it has been in the market for a little over five months now. Initial impressions of the platform in general was pretty lukewarm, as it is usually the case with new software. So has anything changed since then?

Well, I would say yes. Not because manufacturers have launched several smartwatches since then (Moto 360Sony SmartWatch 3, ASUS ZenWatch, LG G Watch R to name a few), but also because of the updates the platform has seen over the course of the five months. I would like to think that I have a general idea of how far along the platform has come since the initial devices were launched as I’ve owned a G Watch since July. Although initially I was a little skeptical about the concept, now when I look at the smartwatch, I can see more clearly the benefits of Android Wear. And it’s even better after the Lollipop update.

Moto_360_Main_Rotate_Watch_Face_01_TA

The Android 5.0.1 update on my G Watch has refreshed the device dramatically. The ability to download and set watch faces directly from the Android companion app is certainly an excellent addition to the platform. This can save both time and the effort of having to manually navigate through a watch face on the smartwatch. The battery life appears to have seen partial improvement as well, which is always a good thing.

The update has changed the way you interact with certain menus, especially the drop down bar which was previously just limited to showing the battery status and acting as a mute/unmute toggle. This drop down menu has now been tweaked with a couple of display modes for your convenience and also a quick shortcut to the settings, so that you don’t have to scroll all the way down from the commands list. Overall, it’s a much needed update and makes Android Wear a very attractive proposition, especially if you’re new to the platform.

Notifications arrive in a breeze, which was never a problem really and hooking up the device with an Android smartphone can be done in a matter of few seconds. Although I feel the newer hardware on the likes of the LG G Watch R, the Moto 360 and the Sony SmartWatch 3 would make a decent addition on my wrist, I’m completely happy with the LG G Watch.

So can you get an Android Wear smartwatch this holiday season? Of course you can. But do you need one? Well if you like having notifications on your wrist rather than having to manually open the phone for every single one than Android Wear can be a pretty nifty addition to your gizmo repertoire. While I would like something like the Samsung Gear S in an Android Wear avatar, the Korean manufacturer has reserved such luxuries exclusively for Samsung devices owners, but that could easily change in 2015.

Come comment on this article: Is it now time to buy an Android Wear smartwatch?

Motorola Moto 360 vs. LG G Watch R

Posted by wicked December - 17 - 2014 - Wednesday Comments Off

We’ve spent a few months with the Android Wear platform now, and out of the six Wear smartwatches on the market today, only two of them have round displays. The first of which is Motorola’s Moto 360, announced way back in March earlier this year. Customers couldn’t actually buy the watch until it was made available alongside the new Moto X in September. Even after the long delay, Moto still managed to get the first round smartwatch to market. Soon after the 360 was made available, LG announced their round smartwatch, the G Watch R, and released it towards the end of October. This gave everyone a big decision to make.

Which is the best round-faced smartwatch on the market? We’ve spent months with both watches, and we’re ready to help you decide which one is better for you. Let’s dive right in.

Design

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-8

Design is one of the areas both of these watches really stand out. The 360 and the G Watch R are both water and dust resistant, both feature a heart rate monitor, and are both made out of generally the same type of materials. Both watches feature a metal chassis, though they’re very different in design. The Moto 360 takes more of a minimalistic approach, offering a smooth stainless steel outer shell with only one button on the right side. The screen is almost perfectly round, except for a small cut out on the bottom to house the ambient light sensor.

The G Watch R is a bit more busy when it comes to design, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. LG’s offering features big brackets on the top and bottom where the watchband connects, and a big bezel around the edges, complete with minute markers. The G Watch R’s display is perfectly round, yet smaller, likely because of the bigger overall size of the device.

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-9

Both of these watches are available with leather bands, though the 360 can also be purchased with a metal offering. Motorola made a big deal out of the type of leather they used with the watch band, and for good reason. Genuine Horween Leather is used in the 360’s band… the same leather Moto is using on the back of the Moto X. It’s soft, flexible, and so far, has held up overtime. As for the leather on the G Watch R, it’s very nice as well. It’s a bit less soft, a bit more rigid, but nonetheless feels like it will hold up overtime.

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-20

When it comes to charging, the Moto 360 uses Qi wireless charging, and ships with a handy dock that can double as a nightstand clock. The G Watch R uses hardware connectors around the back of the device, and fits in a magnetic charging cradle. In terms of charging, we much prefer the wireless charging route Motorola has taken.

As for design, If you want a minimal watch that’s sleek and smooth, the 360 is for you. On the flip side, LG’s offering is more suitable for someone with an active lifestyle. It’s much more rigid and looks like it can survive a bump or two.

Display

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-10

So, we’re all aware that these two watches have circular displays. But how do those displays fair in everyday life? Let’s start with the 360. Motorola’s watch has an IPS LCD panel with 320 x 290 resolution. The odd resolution is thanks to the black bar towards the bottom of the display. Many people have made a big deal out of the black bar, but if you own a 360, you’d know that bar is almost unnoticeable after a few days of using it. Also, being that it’s an LCD display, leaving the watch in ambient mode is a huge battery drain. This means the entire display must be lit up, even though it’s in low-power mode.

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-14

The G Watch R features a completely round display, and it’s a bit sharper than the 360’s. The P-OLED technology allows for better battery life when using ambient mode. Instead of the entire screen lighting up while in ambient mode, only the active pixels consume power, making for less battery drain.

Both displays are good, but we’d have to say the G Watch R is a bit clearer, and colors are more accurate. It’s smaller, but sharper.

Performance

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-17

Motorola took an interesting approach when they were building the 360. The 360 has a slightly old TI OMAP processor backed by 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. It’s a bit sluggish when swiping away cards, but only every once in awhile. Google pushed out an update that largely fixed many of the lag problems, but we still witness it from time to time.

The G Watch R houses more modern internals, as it uses a Snapdragon 400 processor and 512MB of RAM and 4GB of internal storage. We haven’t noticed anything wrong with the LG watch when it comes to performance.

It may have taken the Moto 360 a few software updates to perform as well as the G Watch R, but now the differences between these two are very slim.

Software

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-4

Google is taking a slightly different approach when it comes to software on Android Wear. They’re not allowing any OEMs to skin the Wear platform. With that said, the most manufacturers can do is add custom watch faces and a few small software enhancements.

LG offers a few more watch faces than the Moto watch, but Motorola offers a companion app, allowing users to customize each and every watch face. We’re not faulting LG in any way when it comes to software. Google has largely limited the way OEMs can customize Wear, but we would have liked to see LG take a more bold step with their software experience.

Battery life

Moto 360 vs LG G Watch R-11

The Moto 360 offers a 320mAh battery, while the G Watch R features a 410mAh offering. Both watches have very similar battery life, despite the difference in battery capacity and the 360’s use of an older (less efficient) processing package. If you asked us a few months ago what we thought of the battery life, the G Watch R would have been the clear winner. However, multiple software updates later, and the 360 can perform almost as well as LG’s watch.

Sure, the G Watch R may get a few more hours, but both should be able to provide around 2.5 days without ambient mode, 1.5 days with it on. Obviously factors like brightness level and how much you check the watch for notifications will make a big difference, and so your mileage may vary.

Gallery

Pricing and final thoughts

Both of these smartwatches are available through either Google Play or multiple other retailers. The leather-band Moto 360 is available for $250, while the Moto 360 with the metal band will run you $300. Additional leather bands cost $30, and additional metal bands run $80. The 360 comes in dark, light, or champagne stainless steel casings, with Stone or Black leather bands, dark or light metal bands, as well as two different sized metal variants. The G Watch R is available in black, with only one type of leather band for $300.

With similar software, performance and battery life, you may be wondering which one you should choose. If you value customization, minimalism and watch band options, the Moto 360 is the one for you. However, if you don’t mind spending a bit more for a watch you can take out to go rock climbing, you may want to consider the G Watch R. Either way, these are both great Android Wear devices, and you’ll likely be happy with whichever you choose.

Vodafone UK now rolling out Lollipop update for LG G3

Posted by wicked December - 14 - 2014 - Sunday Comments Off

lg_g3_a_press_release_02

Vodafone is the first operator in the UK to begin the much-anticipated Android 5.0 Lollipop update roll out to all its carrier-branded variants of the LG G3 currently located in the region.

All the changes you’d expect to find in Lollipop are bundled into this upgrade, including the recently-announced Material Design guidelines, improved notifications, a smoother multitasking experience and support for multiple user accounts. LG has also revamped a handful of its own, stock applications too.

Hit the break below for the full changelog.

Material Design: You will quickly notice a whole new colorful look and feel to your device – from fluid animations to new application and system themes, colors and widgets.

Notifications UI & Priorities: In order to alert you to the most timely and relevant information, the format and behavior of notifications have evolved:

  • notifications will appear on the lock screen and are intelligently ranked by type and who sent them.
  • you double-tap to open one, swipe left or right to clear one, or clear all notifications from the bottom of the list.
  • you can set the priority and privacy of notifications for each application.
  • very high priority notifications will pop up briefly over other applications so that you can take action.
  • when you dismiss a notification on one device it will be dismissed on your other Android devices, if they are connected to the Internet.
  • you can further tailor how notifications behave with the new Downtime and Ambient Display settings (see below).

New Interruptions & Downtime Settings: You can tailor how interruptions behave, choosing to allow all, none, or only priority interruptions.  You can personalize what counts as a priority interruption (reminders, events, calls, messages) and even tailor them to be from only contacts you specify.  The Downtime setting will allow only priority interruptions during the times and days that you specify.  e.g. allow only priority interruptions on the weekend.

Recent Apps (Multi-tasking): The redesigned Overview space (formerly called Recents) will include both applications and separate activities within those applications.  For instance, each open tab in Chrome will also appear here along with recent applications; both your Gmail Inbox and a draft email message will appear as separate cards.  This provides a consistent way to switch amongst tasks.

Ambient Display: While your phone’s display is off, Ambient Display can show notifications without turning on the full display. This will be triggered when a notification arrives. You will see notifications similar to that shown on the lock screen.  You can turn this feature on in the Display menu in Settings, and note that it will increase the power consumption of your device.

Motorola Assist and Downtime: Motorola Assist integrates the new Downtime settings to control when you don’t want to be disturbed.  Motorola Assist also now uses the new Interruptions settings so that you can customize exceptions, such as letting only people on your starred contacts list get through.

Flashlight: Lollipop includes a new flashlight option as part of Quick settings (swipe down with two fingers from the status bar to see it).

Share your Device: You can now set up multiple user accounts on your phone.  Guest mode is enabled by default.  You can give calling and text privileges to other users of your device, or restrict them as you like in the Users menu under Settings. Note that the personalized Motorola experiences (Motorola Assist, Motorola Connect)  are for the owner account only. The Motorola Camera, Motorola Gallery, and Motorola FM Radio applications support multiple user accounts.

Pin a view/app: Screen pinning allows you to keep a specific app or screen in view. For example, you can ‘pin’ a game and your child will not be able to navigate anywhere else on your phone.

Battery: The Battery settings panel now shows an estimated projection for how much time you have left while discharging or charging.  You can also enable a new battery saver mode that will save power by reducing performance and most background data operations to extend your battery life.

Smarter Internet Connections: With Android Lollipop, your phone will not connect to a Wi-Fi access point unless there is a verified Internet connection. This feature improves hand-offs between Wi-Fi and cellular connections, helping to maintain your video chat or voice-over-IP (VoIP) call as you switch.

Performance: Your phone now uses the new Android Runtime to help optimize application performance.  After upgrading to Lollipop, your applications will undergo a one-time optimization process.  Note that the optimization for ART requires more space.

Smart Lock (Trusted Devices): Android Lollipop adds native support for allowing trusted devices to keep your phone unlocked (such as your Moto 360, a Bluetooth car kit or headset, etc.).  Smart Lock replaces the prior trusted device capability in your Motorola phone.  Note that you will need to add your trusted devices back after the transition to Lollipop in the Security settings menu under Smart Lock.

Security: Encryption can now use a stronger 256-bit key to help protect your data.  Note that the stronger key willonly be used after you perform a factory reset on Android Lollipop.  Otherwise encryption will continue to use 128-bit key.  You can turn on encryption in the Security settings menu.

If you have not yet received a push notification prompting you to download and install the update, simply head into ‘Settings’, ‘About Device’, then tap ‘Check for Updates’ to manually scan for it.

With Android 5.0.1 and 5.0 OTA updates rolling out to most Nexus devices at this point, we wanted to make sure our Google Play Edition friends were caught up as well. The Android 5.0 updates have been rolling out to the G Pad 8.3 and Z Ultra for a couple of days now, but we are just now getting updates for the One (M7) and One (M8) after a couple of delays.

As we have done with Nexus updates for years, we have put together a list of direct downloads for you below for your Google Play Edition device. We currently do not have Moto G or Galaxy S4 updates, but will hope to add them soon.

Note: We will update this post as more update zip files are made available. Continue to check back.

  • HTC One (M8) GPE – [LRX22C from KTU84P, Android 5.0.1, 528MB] – Download Link
  • HTC One (M7) GPE – [LRX22C from KTU84P, Android 5.0.1, 511MB] – Download Link
  • Sony Z Ultra GPE – [LRX21P from KTU84P, Android 5.0, 397MB] – Download Link
  • LG G Pad 8.3 GPE – [LRX21P from KTU84P, Android 5.0, 405MB] – Download Link
  • Moto G GPE – [LRX21Z from KTU84P, Android 5.0, 380MB] – Download Link
  • Samsung Galaxy S4 GPE – [LRX21P from KTU84P, Android 5.0, 492MB] – Download Link

For instructions to sideload on most devices using adb, check here. Unfortunately, these GPE devices can have different instructions that don’t use adb. For example, HTC has completely broken OTA sideloading on the One (M8) by forcing you to fully S-OFF in order to complete an update. That’s a complete garbage move on their part, so yeah, “oem unlock” isn’t enough for HTC, apparently. To be sure you have the correct process, you may want to head to your related XDA thread.

For instructions on how to grab an OTA file, check here.

Update:  Here are all of the Nexus links for Android 5.0.1.

Update 12/12:  Added Galaxy S4 GPE download link.

Android customization – how to use LG’s Guest Mode

Posted by wicked December - 12 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

LG Guest Mode enter from lock screen

Last week on our Android customization series, we took to the default Android settings menu to control your display timeout. As an added bonus, we showed you where the automatic security lock lives as well, giving you the simplest and most basic control of your device to make it so that your display stays on longer, if that is what you desire.

Today, we would like to break the ‘good for all’ trend, by looking at an LG specific feature, Guest Mode.

The idea of a guest mode, as we will review today, is not exclusive to LG, Android introduced multiple user accounts a while ago. However, LG’s Guest Mode does not create a full separate user account, as the Android solution does. Guest Mode simply creates a new environment with limited access to apps and features, which operates on top of the existing user account.

Before we get started

There are no downloadable apps to install today, but you will need an LG device that is equipped with Guest mode. Guest Mode first became popular on the LG G2, but I will be showing it off on a brand new LG Realm. If this $20 phone, running LG’s skin on top of Android 4.4.2 KitKat, can handle Guest Mode, there is a good chance your newer LG device can too.

Finally, Guest Mode requires that you secure your device with the Pattern type security lock. If you are not already using a Pattern to secure your device, you’ll want to set that up now before you can proceed.

Enable and configure LG Guest Mode

If you are still a little unsure of what Guest Mode is on an LG device, be sure to head back to our previous coverage of the LG G2 and Guest Mode itself. The info is a little over a year old, but the premise remains the same.

To enable Guest Mode, simply head on into your main system Settings.

Under the Personal header, choose Guest Mode.

Look for the On/Off toggle switch and turn it on. If you have not yet set Pattern as your lock screen security, you will be prompted to do so now. Without a Pattern in place, Guest Mode will not turn on.

LG Guest Mode Settings

Tap on Set Pattern.

Create a new pattern that will be used by guests to unlock your device. Hit Continue, repeat the pattern and hit Confirm to complete this step.

LG Guest Mode Set pattern

Last, we need to decide which apps your guests will have access to. At first glance this sounds like a simple task, but keep in mind that Guest Mode is not a unique user account on your device, it is merely a locked down experience using your main account. What this means is that guests will have access to your data in any app that you give them access.

If you are setting up Guest Mode for your children, so that they can access games on your device without being able to access any other features, your privacy is easy enough to manage. However, if you are handing your device over to someone else, you may be tempted to include apps like a web browser, maps and more.

I will leave it to you to think this through, but a couple quick examples to be aware of, providing access to Google Camera allows a user to view your camera roll. More straightforward of an example, providing access to Gmail does not give them a blank slate to work with, it gives them your Gmail.

Simply tap on Set apps.

Hit the Edit button in the top right corner.

Choose the apps your guests get to use. In this particular LG device, you are limited to 20 app selections.

Tap OK to save and exit.

LG Guest Mode Set apps

That is all there is too it. Exit settings and go about your day.

How to use Guest Mode

LG’s Guest Mode is triggered from the lock screen on your device. You will need to turn off your display, and wait for the required time for the auto lock to secure your device. Be sure to look back over last week’s Android customization post if you need a refresher on how to manage this, or the Tasker tutorial on controlling your display, if you are using that.

From the lock screen, enter the Guest Mode pattern you had created earlier.

LG Guest Mode enter from lock screen

Once inside, guests are presented with a basic homescreen with icons for the apps you have provided access. Guests cannot access any other apps, nor can they get to the notification bar or app drawer. Guests can long press each app to re-arrange the layout of the homescreen, but that is about the extent of functionality, aside from running the apps, of course.

When finished, simply turn off the screen and back on again to get back to the lock screen. Enter your normal pattern and go back to your normal use.

One final note, guests can not access the Recents list, but anything they use will show in your list. This is a simple method to monitor what your guest was up to, if needed. Of course, if you are in the habit of keeping an empty Recents list, this just gives you a handful of apps to swipe away.

What’s next

While LG’s Guest Mode is not the absolute best way to secure your data when handing over your phone to anyone else, it does provide a decent method to allow a trusted user to access an app or two without messing with your stuff.

I would not consider Guest Mode to be secure enough to effectively lock out law enforcement, Customs or a TSA agent, if that becomes a situation for you during any holiday travel this Christmas season.

Next week

android 5 lollipop (2)

We hope that the LG users out there found this week’s Android customization post to be useful. We promise not to make a habit of offering tips and tricks on manufacturer and device specific tools, but we like the simplicity of LG’s Guest mode, and we thought you would too. Next week, we would like to take a look at a brand new feature in Android 5.0 Lollipop that allows you to take control of your device for your sleeping hours. I hope you’ll join us.

What tools do you use to secure your device when you hand it over to someone else?

LG G Pen trademark filing sparks hope of a Galaxy Note rival

Posted by wicked December - 9 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

LG has just filed for a new trademark that has some people speculating and probably even hoping for the Korean OEM’s next move. Simply called the LG G Pen, some have taken this to be signs of a stylus-enabled device from LG, similar to rival Samsung’s Galaxy Note family. But the trademark is so generic and vague that it remains open to interpretation, and LG’s latest stylus attempt doesn’t exactly inspire confidence either.

LG’s last attempt at a smartphone with a stylus was the LG G3 Stylus, pictured above, last August. Initially leaked, accidentally or otherwise, there was a short burst of interest around the device that was presumed, or hoped, to become a Galaxy Note rival. After all, it bore the “G3” name. That turned out to be a disappointment, however. Not only was the G3 Stylus an underwhelming mid-range phablet, its stylus was also simply a capacitive one. The only advantage it offered was the silo dedicated to that stylus.

And so it is with a bit of caution that we approach the LG G Pen, whose trademark filing doesn’t really clue us in on what this device will be. The closest we can get is that it is a mobile device, particularly a smartphone. One that will be used for “for the wireless receipt, storage and/or transmission of data and messages;” Whether that actually involves a stylus is yet unknown, but the “Pen” in the name does hint at that possibility. We’re just not sure how this will turn out to be.

Somewhat unrelated to the device itself, the trademark filing seems to also hint at future LG products, especially in the realm of wearables. Aside from smartwatches, of which LG already has two, the document also makes mention of “Necklaces of precious metal; Bracelets of Precious metal; Key rings for precious metal; Rings of Precious metal.”, seemingly implying that the manufacturer is also looking towards other forms of wearable devices, which admittedly might be a bit more interesting if the LG G Pen turns out to be another dud.

LG to show off G Watch R 2 with 4G LTE early next year

Posted by wicked December - 9 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

LG G Watch R

Although the LG G Watch R (our review here) is relatively new to the market, we’re already hearing of a potential successor launching over the coming months. Dubbed as the LG G Watch R 2, this smartwatch will reportedly break cover during the MWC 2015 event in March next year.

If this report is true, LG would have three different Android Wear smartwatches in one year, speaking volumes about the evolution of Android Wear over the past few months. The G Watch R 2 could be a potential competitor to the Samsung Gear S which was launched with 3G support a couple of months ago.

But unlike Samsung’s offering, the G Watch R 2 will be compatible with a wide range of Android devices and won’t be limited to just Samsung devices. At this point, smartwatches can merely be used as companion accessories, but the new breed of devices suggest that manufacturers want to market these as independent devices that can function on their own.

Would you be interested in a 4G LTE clad G Watch R 2 wearable?

Will LG soon discontinue their G Pro line of smartphones?

Posted by wicked December - 9 - 2014 - Tuesday Comments Off

LG has been riding on a high the past months, as their flagship LG G3 has received critical acclaim and the OEM seems to be doing good in terms of sales (as compared to the other Korean brand and their fierce rival, Samsung). But this means also that they might need to focus on several product lines and let go of those that may be too “redundant.”

Reports indicate that the one getting the axe might be the previously popular “Pro” line, previously known as the Optimus G Pro. It used to be the positioned as the more premium and bigger versions of the “G” line, but now that the non-Pro devices are gradually increasing in size as well, there is very little difference between the two lines of smartphones now. The G Pro 2 is 5.9 inches, while the LG G3 is already at 5.5 inches. Rumors are putting the upcoming LG G4 at 5.9 inches, so if it is indeed true, then the Pro series would indeed be irrelevant.

2015 is supposed to be the year of the LG G Pro 3 but it looks like the Korean OEM might be skipping launching that at the MWC in February. What they are focusing on now is to finalize the LG G4 in order to get that out in the market by the middle of next year. This is something that most are looking forward to, especially as the current flagship was a darling, particularly in the QHD display aspect.

While we might be saying goodbye to the Pro line soon, their other series will probably remain, as they seek other markets. The L series is for those looking for more low-end and cheaper smartphones while the F series is the middle ground between low and mid tier devices.
