LG G4 liveblog — 11 a.m. EDT today from New York and London!


We're coming at you live this morning from New York City (and, as our UK contingent reminds us, in London as well!) for the official unveiling of a phone that actually doesn't require all that much introduction — the new LG G4! There's a lot we already know about this phone, of course. But there's also a lot left to learn.

And there's only one way to do that.

So join us right here at 11 a.m. EDT — that's 4 p.m. in London — for our liveblog of the event!

We have our five VR for G3 visor winners!

LG G3 and VR for G3

There are all sorts of flavors of VR out there. You've no doubt seen Google Cardboard, and LG has its own take on that with the new VR for G3. Think plastic visor that the LG G3 smartphone fits inside. Affix to your face, and you're immersed in whatever's on the screen.

So of course, we had to give some away! But what good is the VR without the G3? So we decided to throw the phone in as well. And now it's time to announce who the winners are!

Where's the Weather app on the Galaxy S6?


Samsung will happily show you the weather all over the Galaxy S6, but there's no icon in the app drawer.

While you may have a favorite weather app to turn to for what is happening near you, a lot of folks rely on whatever app is handy. For some that means the weather notifications through Google Now are perfect, while others rely on that quick glance baked into their favorite clock widget. Like most Android phones, the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge offers a clock widget with weather built in that pops up as soon as you hit the home screen for the first time. This same weather information is available on the lock screen, as well as the Information Stream on the Galaxy S6 edge. It's powered by Accuweather, and works reasonably well for offering up a quick glance at your current weather.

The only thing missing is the actual app. At least, that's how you'd probably feel if you went looking for this app in your launcher. What you're seeing here is another example of Samsung's integrated apps, which means you've got a couple of options for accessing and using the app to get your weather.
