One of the lawsuits over the LG Nexus 5X bootloop has been dropped

Chimicles & Tikellis LLP, the law firm which was previously involved in a suit against LG for the Nexus 5X bootlooping problem, has filed a notice for voluntary dismissal of their case as of May 4th. Note that this is a different suit than the one by Girard Gibbs LLP that we reported on back in April, which (to our knowledge) is still ongoing.

You've probably seen people wearing LG Tones while out and about, but the fairly new Tone Studios bring an interesting twist.

And now, you can get them for just $156.93 at Amazon.

Verizon's LG K8 V is getting an update to Android 7.0 Nougat

Last year, LG unveiled the LG K8 budget phone, alongside the less-powerful K5. As you might be able to tell from the name, the LG K8 V is the Verizon variant, and now Big Red is pushing an Android 7.0 Nougat update to it.

[Deal Alert] Grab an unlocked LG G5 for $299 from B&H ($230 off) and get a free LG 360 VR headset (worth $129)

LG's 2016 flagship, the G5, is still a solid phone, even if it never quite reached the same heights as other headline devices of the time. While you may not be willing to pay through the nose for it, $299 is an attractive price given its specs, and that's made even better when B&H are willing to throw in an LG 360 VR headset for nothing.

LG's 'stylishly resilient' X venture makes its way to AT&T on May 26th, features MIL-STD 810G and IP68 certifications

LG first launched its X-series line of phones halfway through last year, and it's been continuing to roll new models out. The latest in this saga is the AT&T-exclusive X venture, which, as you might be able to tell from its name, is a rather rugged device. AT&T calls it 'stylishly resilient,' but let's be honest - only half of that statement is true.

AT&T's LG Phoenix 2 has received Android 7.0 Nougat

Considering many high-end phones never get major Android updates, it's always nice to see budget phones continue to be supported. This time around, AT&T's sub-$100 LG Phoenix 2 phone is getting Android 7.0 Nougat.

The LG Stylo 3 Plus is now available at T-Mobile

T-Mobile has announced that LG's latest phablet, the G Stylo 3 Plus, is available on the network from today. The phablet is a Samsung Galaxy Note competitor of sorts, albeit at a much lower price point, as it sports a massive 5.7" display and also includes a stylus.

Verizon LG Stylo 2 V gets Android Nougat 7.0 update

Over the last year or so, OTA updates to the T-Mobile and Verizon versions of devices in the US have been happening almost at the same time or at least within a very short time period of each other. This is the case with the LG Stylo 2. The T-Mobile variant got the update two days ago (after a false alarm back in February) and now the Verizon one is following suite.

This variant is actually called the Stylo 2 V, because Verizon likes to slap letters to the names of phones when it can, and it's a midranger by all standards. But all phones deserve Nougat equally and this new VS83520b build number is delivering it to the Stylo 2 V.

Unlocked LG G5 in the US (RS988) gets Android 7.0 Nougat OTA

OTA updates are amazingly unpredictable. Sometimes, the US versions of devices get them first and international variants have to wait weeks and months, other times it's just the opposite. The latter is the case of the LG G5. My fiancé's unlocked model got the OTA around last December in Lebanon, but apparently the US unlocked version has been lingering on Marshmallow until now. That's a 6-month delay — whoa.

Well, the OTA is finally (never has this adverb been so rightfully used) rolling out to that variant of the G5, which is lovingly called the RS988. It weighs over 1300MB and when it installs, it pushes your device up to software version RS98821a, Android 7.0, with the April security updates.

LG is reportedly planning to release its first OLED smartphone in Q3 this year

LG has been one of the manufacturers who has stuck with LCD panels on its smartphones. While they look great, they still can't hold a candle to what Samsung puts in its Galaxy S and Note phones. Likely hoping to change that, the smaller Korean OEM (in terms of smartphone market share) is planning to ship its first smartphone with an OLED display in Q3 this year.
