This week, Rob and Gary visited ARM in London to check out the chip designer’s latest innovations. We’re already brought you a close look at the Cortex A72 chip, and a whole lot more is coming next week.

For next, we’re looking forward to going hands-on with LG’s latest and greatest, the leather-bound G4. While there may not be many surprises left in store, we still can’t wait to see how the G4 stands against the S6 and other hot Android devices that came out thsi season. Our Ash Tailor will be in London to take the G4 for a spin.
