LG’s flagship G4 has gone on sale with carriers and retailers offering freebies to anyone who places an order.
Once in a blue moon a smartphone comes along and gives the impression the company behind it is about to strike gold. This is the response elicited by LG’s 2015 flagship, the G4, which departs from the norm in its styling and hardware, and it does so for the better.
Dick Smith will exclusively sell Oppo’s upcoming R7 flagship, a 5-inch Android smartphone that is 6mm thick, when it launches in Australia on 28 July.
Apple gives you three free months to try out Apple Music. After that, you have to pay $10 per month for a single user membership or $15 per month for a family membership.

Despite rumors that Microsoft is about to kill Windows Phone, some industry observers say that's unlikely for several reasons, especially the expected gains from the rollout of Windows 10, which will run on smartphones and other devices.

If you're looking for an exhaustive hands on of Windows 10 Mobile build 10149, this isn't it. I spent most of Thursday afternoon trying to install it on two phones--managing to put one into an unresponsive state, and breaking Wi-Fi on the other. Instead, I'm sitting here, a Newcastle beside me, wondering whether other Windows Insiders like me will be willing to continue this life of adventure once Windows 10 launches.
