Pocketnow Weekly 073: LG G Flex & Moto G chat with MKBHD!

Sat Dec 07 2013 (01:35:52)

Earlier today, while we were busy hanging with some of you fine folks on the latest episode of the Pocketnow Live, a lot was going down elsewhere. Our LG G Flex review was in the final polishing stages; our own Taylor Martin was kicking out some coverage on Motorola's mold-breaking budget wonder, the Moto G; and friend of the show Marques Brownlee was interviewing Dennis Woodside, CEO of Motorola Mobility. All that activity demands a followup, of course, and what better venue for an end-of-week wrapup than the Pocketnow Weekly podcast?

We can't think of any, either. So whether you're here for our full and complete thoughts on the LG G Flex, the latest on Motorola's $180 wonder, or the freshest news on how OEMs and carriers are making smartphone ownership easier, you're in the right place. So crack your knuckles and stretch out your smartphone: episode 073 of the Pocketnow Weekly podcast is here for your weekend enjoyment.
