As usual, do let us know if your a lucky Lollipop lad or not, we’d love to hear your thoughts.

Gartner: Smartphone sales up 20 percent, Xiaomi kicks LG out of the top 5

Reports on the meteoric rise of smartphones are beginning to sound like broken records, but there aren't any signs of that growth stopping anytime soon. Case in point: Gartner's latest stats show that smartphones sales jumped 20 percent to reach 301 million units in the third quarter. And yes, that jump came at the expense of feature phones sales, which fell by 25 percent. No surprises there, but the smartphone growth did lead to some intriguing movement among the top five smartphone vendors. Xiaomi joined the prestigious group for the first time, kicking out LG in the process. Samsung is still king of the hill, but its smartphone sales fell another eight percentage points in the quarter, leaving it with just 24.4 percent of the market.

Black Friday – G Watch for £79

There’s nothing like the sense of togetherness at Christmas time, so it’s great to see people ramming each other out of the way and fighting in stores to get their hands on a bargain. With finances stretched, we’re either punching people in shops or going online and generally swearing at the pathetic state of the websites for most stores as they collapse under the weight of visits.

Anyhow, Google Play is still running, and right now you can get yourself an LG G Watch for £79 right here. That’s a massive £80, so it should set off a mild sense of both panic and rage inside you as you head off to hunt for yet another bargain.

LG GizmoPal wearable lets kids call their parents with one button

Even though the wearable space is flooded with a ton of options, most of those are geared toward grown-ups. And, hey, why not let the little ones join the fun too. Earlier this year, LG introduced the KizOn in South Korea, a wearable for children that made it easy for them to communicate with their parents. Today, that same device is coming to the US on Verizon, but here it will be known as the GizmoPal. The idea behind LG's new wearable is extremely simple, as it only requires being set up with a pre-configured number and, using a single button, kid(s) can then easily make or receive a call to and from it. The GizmoPal also comes with a companion app, available for iOS and Android, which uses GPS features to allow you, the parent, to easily monitor your child's location at all times.
