Leak: This is the phone LG will launch to combat the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6

Leak: This is the phone LG will launch to combat the iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6

LG was smart to not debut its next-generation flagship smartphone during this month’s Mobile World Congress trade show. It’s not that the phone is a dud, per se, but rather that Samsung and HTC definitely stole the show with their respective new flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9. These hot new Android phones took center stage in Barcelona, but now that the buzz is dying down it looks like LG is getting ready to pull back the curtain on its latest and greatest Android phone.

Unfortunately for LG, it looks like a huge new leak just beat it to the punch. More →

LG Watch Urbane LTE webOS

I can’t believe I’m saying this but… webOS looks like a great smartwatch platform

I can’t believe I’m saying this but… webOS looks like a great smartwatch platform

Of all the failed smartphone platforms I’ve seen over the years, webOS’s death was the most tragic because it really was a wonderfully intuitive platform that was  especially good for multitasking. Ever since Palm got bought out by HP, which subsequently sold webOS to LG, the platform has basically been dead although it always pops up every now and then running on a TV or a washing machine. However, a great video of LG’s Watch Urbane LTE has me thinking that webOS might have a 17th life as a wearables platform. More →

LG G4 Release Date News

LG’s G4 will reportedly be ‘radically’ different from the G3

LG’s G4 will reportedly be ‘radically’ different from the G3

Three phones have dominated the conversation at MWC 2015 this week: the HTC One M9, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Samsung and HTC both made waves in Barcelona, but LG has been uncharacteristically quiet. LG’s appearance at the show was limited to wearable devices, but it sounds like it won’t be long until the G4 makes its debut.

LG Watch Urbane hands-on: The smartwatch LG really needs

LG Watch Urbane hands-on: The smartwatch LG really needs

A few days before MWC 2015 kicked off, LG unveiled not one but two interesting wearable devices, and even though they share the same name, they’re actually quite different. The LG Watch Urbane LTE model that I saw earlier is a SIM-enabled smartphone on your wrist, a device that’s pretty bulky, even though it looks good and you could easily get used to that big metallic piece of technology on your hand.

But the real looker on LG’s hands is the LG Watch Urbane that looks even better in real life than in pictures and videos. More →

LG Watch Urbane LTE hands-on: Gorgeous, but a bit bulky

A few days before the MWC 2015 madness started, LG surprised smartwatch fans by announcing a one of the best-looking smartwatches yet, at least until Huawei’s watch was unveiled: the LG Watch Urbane and its SIM-card carrying cohort, the LG Watch Urbane LTE. After taking the later for a brief stroll at MWC, I can say that it looks and feels good on the wrist, but it’s also a little bulky. Not to mention the fact that it runs on LG’s “Wearable Platform,” which might take some adjusting to. More →

AT&T is the first carrier to confirm it will sell the world’s sexiest new Android watch

Smartwatch fans have precious few choices when it comes to devices that don’t look like a terrible cross between a Swatch watch and a Casio wrist calculator. Beginning soon, however, that is going to change. Apple is expected to announce Apple Watch launch details during its event on March 9th, and the device will begin shipping in April, according to earlier comments made by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

And soon, U.S. consumers will have another beautiful choice for a smartwatch thanks to a new announcement from LG and AT&T on Sunday. More →

Showdown: Comparing Android 5.0 Lollipop on Samsung, LG and HTC’s top phones

It’s been a long time coming, but many of the latest flagship Android devices have finally received their respective Lollipop updates. Android 5.0 Lollipop has some issues of its own, but there’s no question that the UI is a major visual improvement over its predecessor.

But not every Android 5.0 phone looks the same. More →

Apple Watch’s only real competition looks stunning in this new video

Apple Watch’s only real competition looks stunning in this new video

We do not yet know everything there is to know about Apple’s upcoming debut entry into the smartwatch space, the Apple Watch. What we do know, however, is that rival smartwatches to date have not been well received at all at this point. Total quarterly global smartwatch sales are still said to number in the hundreds of thousands at this point, so Apple will almost certainly surpass lifetime smartwatch sales of any given rival during the Apple Watch’s first few months of availability.

To be fair, smartwatches have been pretty lackluster until now, and there really isn’t much of a reason to consider buying any device that has been released at this point. As we recently reported, however, that is about to change. More →

Video evidence released in case of LG exec allegedly sabotaging a Samsung washing machine

Welcome to the weird and wild world of South Korean consumer electronics giants. While Apple and Samsung’s court battles are certainly the most widely publicized, LG now finds itself in Samsung’s sights for an entirely different reason: According to Samsung’s allegations, LG executive Jo Seong-Jin, and two other LG employees intentionally damaged a Samsung washing machine in a German store.

The evidence supporting Samsung’s case was compelling enough that an indictment has been issued, and now some of the most damning evidence may have come to light. LG on Monday released some video evidence it claims exonerates Jo, however Samsung says that the evidence has been tampered with. More →

LG won’t go up against the Galaxy S6 next month, but its new G4 phone will launch soon

The publication learned that the upcoming LG G4 flagship handset will not make an appearance at this year’s Spanish mobile show, but the phone will still be unveiled earlier than expected. More →
