I have to say the TGP article isn’t really about selling the idea of why dashboard cameras are a must for all drivers, but I myself am totally convinced that indeed I should get one. In fact, the same Transcend DrivePro 200 is in my short list.

LG G4 and Beyond

Pocketnow: LG wants to make a new flagship, even more powerful than the G4 will be

But to hear some new talk from company execs, it’s not the G4 that will get us really excited, but what’s next: a phone that “stands above the G series” as an even higher-end option.

If it’s higher than the G4, what does that make my LG G2, then? Plain old Android device?

I just hope LG won’t neglect updates for my G2. Up until now, we’re still waiting for the Android Lollipop OS version update.
