The LG G4 hardware is matched with superior yet easy to use software. A smartphone needs to be secure and strong enough when my son gets his grubby hands on it, yet it needs to have the features that excites the geek in me. There are features I want, features I need, and features I can live without. LG Canada supplied me with the stunning LG G4, and I wanted to test it from the perspective of how I would use it as a dad. Engineered by LG and branded by Google, the Nexus 4 had a lot to love. Although the camera software had a lot of bells and whistles, the hardware had a difficult time keeping up.

Speyer Jr. , echoing the Department of Homeland Security, said that there is “no credible threat” against malls in Western New York. Still, police have stepped up security practices that were already in place well before the threatening video was made. “With a terrorist threat like that, there’s no tip about anything specific here, so we just kind of get together, share information and try to give it a little more attention and hopefully put everybody on a higher state of alert,” Speyer said. did not respond to requests for comment, but Speyer said the police communicate with the Walden Galleria every day and.
