[Review] Final thoughts on the G3

As you've probably already read (and, if by chance you haven't, you can catch up here on my 10 days with the G3) I've been using the latest flagship from LG as my new daily driver mobile phone.  I've really got nothing but great things to say about it, and to sum it all up, if you are in the market for a new smartphone, you should give the G3 a long look.

Having said that, I wanted to offer up a few final thoughts on the G3, especially for those who are ready to make the plunge and buy a new device soon.

[Rumor] Newest iPhone to feature version with sapphire glass?

Apple may be giving an all new meaning to "high end" when they release their new devices in early September.  According to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Apple may be releasing a version of the new iPhone 6 with a sapphire glass display.  Sapphire crystal is only below diamond in its hardness rating and could be a big step forward in reducing scratches on mobile device screens and the need for screen protectors.

[News] Apple's latest iPhone probably announced on Sept 9

Not to be outdone by Samsung's Note 4 demo date, it appears that Apple has set some time aside in early September to announce the launch of (at least) one version of the next gen iPhone, dubbed "iPhone 6."  The new device (which probably doesn't look anything like the photo shown) is rumored to sport a larger 4.7" display and is likely to be only 6mm thick.  Check out the full link to the story on PhoneArena.com here.

[News] New Moto 360 smartwatch details leaked

For those to whom a smartwatch seems like your particular cup of brandy, the Moto 360 is probably the thing you've been digging on for a long, long time.  I say a long time since the good lord only knows when it will be released.  But now, thanks to a tipster known as "Mister Gadget" we have some more pics and details about this beast piece of tech "coming soon" from Motorola.

[News] Samsung Galaxy Note 4 announcement likely to come on Sept 3

Word is out - invitations to the Samsung Unpacked 2014 event have started to arrive.  And at this event, the long awaited successor to the popular Galaxy Note 3 is expected to make its debut.  The Note 4 is rumored to have specs "much better than the Galaxy S5" - which should include the Snapdragon 805 processor and a Quad HD display.  In a time where 5.5" displays on mobile devices are growing more commonplace, I'm sure that Samsung will be happy to have theirs hit store shelves.

With the G3 just released, and the rumored iPhone 6 release no doubt coming later on this year, could Sammy have picked just the right time to launch their new phablet?  Time will tell.
