For years, LG has released flagship smartphones in tandem with Samsung, but its devices have consistently played second fiddle. Now, LG's Vice Chairman Cho Sung-jin has confirmed a significant strategy shift at the company. LG will no longer launch phones in the G and V series on a set yearly schedule. Instead, it'll launch phones "when it is needed." Read More
LG quietly let it be known today that they will emerge from the fourth quarter of 2017 with a $343.2 million profit and that they expect a yearly profit increase of 84.5% over 2016. Read More
Amazon's Prime Exclusive phones remain a popular option for people wanting to save money on phone purchases. While you have to put up with lock screen ads and the bootloader can't be unlocked, Prime phones are often much less expensive than the normal unlocked models. During this month, Amazon will be discounting select Prime Exclusive phones, as much as $50 off the usual prices. Read More

The vast majority of Android device buyers don't know or care what a custom ROM is. And that's completely fine - a phone or tablet's stock ROM will be enough for 99.9% of potential users. But for the 0.1% that like to tinker, the development community surrounding a given device can drastically impact the value. Your purchase can become a much better deal if there is a wealth of custom ROM options available, extending its lifespan for possibly years (and nearly a decade for the HD2).

LineageOS has done an impressive job with adding official support for more and more devices. The last time we took a look at the ROM, it had improved its Jelly browser and merged the August security patch to all its devices. Now even more phones are receiving official builds, including the OnePlus 5. Read More
T-Mobile is no stranger to "buy one, get one" promotions. In fact, the Bellevue-based company has even run one that included the LG G6 and V20 before. This latest one, then, will probably be pretty familiar to those of you who've seen a T-Mobile BOGO in action before. Read More
When we last looked at TWRP, the project had added support for a whopping 17 new devices. Granted, most of those were variations of three Samsung devices, but it's still impressive. Since then, three more devices have been added to the official builds - including the LG G6. Read More
LG has been providing its official Bootloader Unlock tool for developers for a while and most recent flagships have been supported on it like the G5, V10, and V20. But only one or two variants of each has seen official support and today adds another device to the list with just one variant included.
The LG G6 for the European market (H870) is now supported by the Bootloader Unlock tool. Read More
The LG G6 was a definite improvement over the G5, but it wasn't quite as impressive as the Galaxy S8 overall. However, the price of this phone has been dropping ever since launch, and now you can get a new G6 for $150 off. Amazon is now selling the unlocked LG G6 for a mere $549.99, matching a previous deal at B&H. The GS8 is a lot more spendy. Read More
