“Hi droid guy, my Galaxy S5 won’t turn on after I installed the lollipop update. Please help!” That is just one of the many emails we received from our readers shortly after Android 5 Lollipop update was rolled for the Samsung Galaxy S5. Before anything else, I just want to make a distinction between the phrases “won’t turn on” and “won’t boot up.” When you say “won’t turn on,” it means the phone won’t respond when you press the power key; the screen won’t...

The LG G Watch R which broke cover in September last year has been very popular among the Android Wear crowd. But with the manufacturer launching the Watch Urbane recently, the G Watch R has somewhat taken a backseat on our minds. But that’s about to change if you shift your attention towards AT&T where the wearable is selling for just $99, which according to the carrier is a discount of $200, although the original price is $249. The carrier is also offering free shipping with the smartwatch. There’s no expiration date...

We’ve received a lot of emails from our readers seeking help as their Galaxy S5 won’t charge or has issues charging. A charging problem is as bad as no power at all. What would you do if your phone’s battery is completely drained? Sure, you can buy a new battery to power it up but do you want to buy a new one every day? The other option is to buy an external battery charger but then it’s also too much of a hassle to open that back cover and replace the battery every time it’s drained. Majority of the problems...

After unveiling a couple of then odd-looking Chromebooks at I/O 2011, the road-opening first-gen Nexus 7 a year later and short-lived Google Play Edition device program pioneer Galaxy S4 during the 2013 developer-centric San Francisco conference, El Goog turned the page in 2014 and kept the event’s focus on software. Similarly, day one of Google I/O 2015 didn’t bring any new Nexus family members to the table, Android Wear smartwatches, Android One handhelds or even Android TV set-top boxes. Granted, the forum hasn’t technically...
