Right now you can get an LG G5, a Garmin Vivofit 3, a spare battery for the G5, and more -- all for just $479. #Deals #News #LG
While the LG G5 never quite caught on quite like the OEM had likely hoped, it still remains a solid, generally underrated device. This is especially true if you can find it for the right price. In the past we've seen the LG G5 as cheap as $409.99. The latest offer might not be quite as impressive at $479, but when you factor in the added $170 in freebies, it's actually a pretty solid offer.In addition to the LG G5, B&H is offering an extra batter...

The latest update to the Oculus VR app is reportedly causing faster battery drain for many Samsung users. #News #Oculus #Samsung
In theory, app updates are meant to bring bug fixes and performance improvements, as well as new features. Unfortunately, for all the fixes added, updates tend to sneak in at least a few bugs as well. That’s unfortunately what appears to be happening with the latest version of the Oculus app for Samsung devices.A number of Redditors have been complaining about poor battery life that started around last night, when the new update arrived. I actual...

Actually the exploding Note 7s are using Samsung in house. Samsung has a partnership company who also makes the batteries... Samsung is replacing the phones with the outsourced manufacturer.

+Chris Harpner I'm having a crap day so AA have given me an opportunity to vent in a completely 🤓 manner. I hate 'bad' web design. There's no way it's not deliberate - it does what the customer wants. Still, people keep asking for this crap, the web is full of free content elsewhere people can go to, so if you want users to return you really shouldn't be winding them up.
