The V10 is a massively underrated phone; it excels in a number of arenas where other phones fall flat on their faces. Spec-wise, it's not as nice as the recently announced V20, but have fun trying to get one of those for under $300 in the near future. If you're looking for an affordable flagship, the Verizon LG V10 will be waiting for you at Best Buy for a price of $299.99. Read More
So, Samsung is set to relaunch sales of the Note7 next month on October 21st. That may also be the date of another important device popping up on store shelves—the LG V20. While LG has yet to comment, noted leaker of things Evan Blass says that's the date. Read More
In the US, an extraordinarily small amount of phones utilize MediaTek chipsets. However, with the introduction of the LG X power to Sprint and Boost Mobile, that small amount is growing by one. The X power, which was just revealed today for the aforementioned CDMA carriers, sports a MediaTek MTK6755M (more commonly known as the helio P10) clocked at 1.8GHz. MediaTek is calling this its "first premium chipset offered in a device on a major U.S. carrier network." Read More
In recent years, a raft of new smartwatches would launch each fall in time for holiday shopping, but not this time. There were a few fitness-oriented watches released earlier this summer, and some new Fossil watches have started popping up at retail. But where are the big names like Motorola, LG, and Huawei? Cnet has gotten confirmation from all three companies that they won't be releasing any more watches this year. Read More
LG and the V20 could hardly have hoped for a more fortuitous turn of events in recent weeks. Samsung’s Note7 has been globally recalled for a serious battery defect, and replacement shipments are nowhere to be seen. The V20, by contrast, offers an increasingly rare removable battery. Meanwhile, Apple’s iPhone 7 duo have been unveiled without a headphone jack. The V20 proudly touts its high-end wired audio capabilities as being among the best in the smartphone world. It may be of little consequence that it will likely be the first, or at least technically first, phone to ship with Android 7.0 - but of much greater import is the fact that it will be available on all four major US carriers.

After more than a few leaks, the LG V20 is now official. Revealed less than an hour ago in San Francisco, the V10 successor maintains the G5's design and many of its specs while adding several touches that make LG's V series devices unique. Read More
Here's a deal that may tempt you to lighten your wallet today. Verizon has the LG Watch Urbane marked down to a paltry $99.99. That's the cheapest price we've seen yet on the device and $130 less than what it currently sells for on Amazon. For a deal junkie like me, that's a seriously compelling bargain. Read More
We've seen some renders of the upcoming LG V20 already, but there's a new one floating around the internet now courtesy of Evan @evleaks Blass. This image looks more official than the last ones, and the design of the chin looks less modular than before. Perhaps this is evidence LG isn't looking to continue that particular boondoggle.

With the almost limitless number of Android devices on the market, the amount supporting WiFi Calling on AT&T is somewhat limited. The first Android device that AT&T allowed into the WiFi calling club was the LG G4, even after the LG G5 had been available on the network for some time.
Aside from the G4, the only other supported devices were various iPhone models, a few recent Samsung flagships, and two other LG phones. Now the LG V10 is joining that list, with a software update pushing out to owners with the new feature.
The update, with a build number of MRA58K, apparently only includes the addition of WiFi calling; sorry if you got your hopes up for a Nougat update. Read More
Before today, only Google devices, the Sony Xperia Z3, and the Sony Xperia X Performance had Android 7.0 previews built for them. Now, another Android has joined the Nougat ranks—the LG G5. Whether you like the G5 or not (David sure didn't), it's getting a Nougat preview right now, albeit with more than a few catches. Read More
