The Galaxy Note 7 may have left us too soon, but LG wants you to remember that it also offers stylus-equipped Android phones! Granted, the G3 Stylus and G Stylo weren't exactly in the same super-premium league as the Notes, but they had big screens and pointy sticks, and that's what counts. The LG Stylo 2 wasn't blessed with a G, and perhaps that's why it hasn't come to any American carriers. Spotting a whole where a superfluous letter needed to go, Verizon decided to slap a "V" on the end. So now we have the Verizon LG Stylo 2 V, coming to a retailer near you on October 20th. Read More
The Asus ZenPad S 8.0 was, for the most part, a very solid tablet. Now Asus is announcing the latest entry in that line, the ZenPad 3S 10. Read More
The number "six" is so last year—Samsung has just announced the Galaxy Note7 to bring the numbering in-line with the flagship S phones. There were a myriad of leaks leading up to this moment, so nothing here is too surprising. It's a big Samsung phone with a stylus, a curved AMOLED, an iris scanner, and speedy internals. Read More
Samsung may be deemphasizing its stylus-packing Note devices, but LG is still pushing its more budget-friendly stylus phones. They're even called "Stylus." The new Stylus 2 Plus is out today in Taiwan and it'll be coming to Asia, South America, Europe, and North America in a few weeks. LG says this device will be a bit more high-power than the last Stylus too. Read More
LG is going to announce the G5 at MWC in just a few days, but that's not all. The smartphone maker has taken the wraps off the Stylus 2, a considerably less exciting phone, but one that won't make such a big dent in your bank account. Plus, it has a stylus. I know, who would have thought? Read More
If you want a top end phablet with a stylus, you can't find one with better specs than the Galaxy Note 5. You also can't find it cheaper anywhere than you can on eBay right now. The N920C unlocked international version is on sale for $550, over $200 less than the asking price at T-Mobile and AT&T.

Remember the LG G Pad, the company's return to the tablet market from 2013? It was an impressive effort, a high-end, mid-sized tablet (which eventually got a Google Play Edition brother) that was unfortunately followed up by a collection of low-end G Pads designed to try and take a bit out of Samsung's cheap Galaxy Tab market share. It looks like LG is ready to try again, at least according to this page on the company's Korean website. The promo page describes a mid-sized tablet with some advanced features, but poor specs.
Dozens of photos outline the features of the LG G Pad II 8.0 (model number LGV498), the first member of this line that we've seen thus far. Read More
You don't usually think of HP as a company that makes desirable Android tablets. And in fact, when you go to the HP site and peruse the tablet section, you'd be proven right. However, tucked away in the business-oriented side of the site are some devices that might qualify as lust-worthy for certain Android fans.
One such device is the HP Pro Slate 8, which was announced back in January and was released late this spring. It's basically an iPad Mini running Android, plus a screaming ultrasonic pen. That sounds more awesome than it is. Read More
Back at Mobile World Congress in February, LG announced a bevy of mid range devices. Among them were the LG G Stylo, a 5.7-inch phablet with a stylus, and the humble 4.5-inch LG Leon. After the announcement of the LG G4 today, T-Mobile added product pages for both of these handsets and it would appear they are preparing to refresh their entire LG product lineup.
Here is a quick overview of each device: Read More
