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
I know QC 3.0 is the hot new tech on the market right now, but, in reality, it is only incrementally better than the QC 2.0 technology that it is replacing. If you don't mind a small downgrade in speed, you can pick up the older generation chargers for a fraction of what those sporting QC 3.0 cost.
Aukey just sent me the links to a few coupons it is offering on some of its 'old' QC 2.0 chargers. It has a couple for use in the house and one for the car and all of them are heavily discounted. Here are the descriptions and links. Read More
LG has acknowledged the existence of the V20 and set a date for the reveal (September 6th). We have yet to see an official image of the phone, but renders leaked by Android Authority purport to show the V20 from all angles. It looks a lot like the LG G5, right down to the removable (probably modular) chin. Read More
LG has been having problems in the wake of poor LG G5 sales. The Korean smartphone maker has already given some execs the boot, moved others to different areas, and formed a new smartphone oversight group. LG is pinning its hopes for turning 2016 around on the V20, which it has now officially acknowledged on its Korean site. The V20 will be out in September with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

The LG G4 came out roughly a year ago, and it was a rather nice phone, all things considered. The price started out up in the standard flagship range, but it has come down considerably. Now, you can pick up a new-ish G4 on eBay for $200. That's a solid deal. Read More
The LG G5 was announced earlier this year with an ecosystem of "friends" that were aimed at boosting profits in its troubled mobile division. After initially solid shipments of the G5, things have turned sour fast. LG has announced a major shakeup in its mobile division that includes firing some staff and the formation of a "program management office" to oversee product development. Read More
In my surroundings, I am known as the "LG girl." I switched to the brand in 2013 when the G2 was announced and fell in love with the big screen, the great camera, and even LG's own software additions on top of AOSP. I recall showing friends and acquaintances photos I'd taken with the G2 while hiking, flipping the phone to landscape, and telling them to swipe through the pics. "It's like holding only a screen, the bezels disappear," was my own way of explaining why I loved the G2 so much. It never failed to impress.
Then the G3 came along. Read More
