We've received information from a reliable source detailing basic specifications for the upcoming 5.2" Nexus phone being produced by LG. First things first: we don't even know if Nexus 5 is the name. And because it's probably the most-wanted piece of information: we don't know excactly how much it will cost, other than to say it's likely it will be at a sub-flagship level. Does that mean $300? $400? $500? We really don't know, so your guess is as good as ours here.
Getting back to the major specifications, Qualcomm's Snapdragon 808 will be powering the whole show, and that's no real surprise - the 808 has been consistently rumored to feature in one of the two alleged upcoming Nexus phones. Read More
Do you have more money than sense, and also use Android phones? Then the $17,000 Apple Watch Edition isn't an option for you. You'll have to make do with the somewhat less insane (but still pretty ridiculous) LG Watch Urbane Luxe. It's a $1200 version of the Urbane with a nicer strap and 23k gold plated body. Read More
Just a couple of weeks ago, we shared what we thought was a crazy good deal on LG's Watch Urbane for just $240 on Newegg. Now you can do even better if you're willing to jump through a couple of hoops, bringing the price down to $204 for the rose gold version of the watch. As long as you remember to mail in a rebate, you get $20 off. You also get 10% off if you use VISA Checkout, which requires nothing more than a VISA credit card. This is all lowering an already-great price of $249.
You need to use the coupon code VCO2015BTS to get the VISA Checkout-related discount, as in the picture above. Read More
I'm always looking for that perfect Bluetooth keyboard — one that is small and easy to carry, but large enough to comfortably type on, compatible with Android and iOS, and can connect to multiple devices at the same time. See, I always envision myself as the free-spirited type of person who goes to a cafe, orders a cappuccino, and pulls out a tablet with a keyboard to get work done as if I'm too hip to work at an office but too busy to wait until later. Suffice it to say, I'm never that cool, but I think LG may have gotten the closest to my fantasy with its Rolly Keyboard (model KBB-700). Read More
A couple of weeks ago we spotted LG's new G Pad II 8.0, at that point announced exclusively for the company's home market of South Korea. The hardware is underwhelming at best: despite some interesting features like a full-sized USB port and a stylus, many were put off by the pokey Snapdragon 210 processor and 1.5GB of RAM. Fortunately, it looks like LG isn't going to go for the lowest common denominator with all its forthcoming tablets. The G Pad II 10.1, announced today, has a little more oomph to its hardware.
To begin with, it uses a 1920x1200 screen, which has become essentially the lowest point of entry for 10-inch tablets at this point (no matter what Samsung says). Read More
Google added support for WiFi communication to Android Wear in the 5.1 update a few months ago, but not all watches had the necessary hardware. The pricey LG G Watch R was among those lacking proper support. LG said it planned to rectify that in an update over the summer, and indeed it has in the new Wear update. Read More
The LG G Flex 2 isn't as big as its predecessor, which makes it a more practical device to own. Unfortunately, a slightly curved screen isn't really exciting enough for the cost (AT&T wants $709 off contract). But while the G Flex 2 may not be a must-have phone, it's still a nice one. One you can get on eBay for a significantly more reasonable $290. And it will come brand new—not used, nor refurbished.
These are AT&T unlocked units, so you're free to take them over to T-Mobile, but it won't support all the same bands. This model comes in silver. Read More
If a smartwatch is in the deepest desires of your heart, but you just can't stand the idea of coughing up $350(ish) to get one of the higher end models, Newegg may finally be the company to get that death grip off your wallet with a new deal on the LG Watch Urbane (which is arguably the best Android Wear watch out there right now).
This works by utilizing a small collection of discounts, coupons, and mail-in rebates to get the price down from $350 to just $240. Here's the breakdown:
- $30 instant rebate (read: you don't have to do anything)
- $60 coupon code: EMCAWKW92
- $20 mail-in rebate
Yeah, that last bit is easily the crummiest part of this whole deal, because having to mail junk in and wait for however many weeks to get your prepaid Visa rebate card back basically sucks. Read More
When you think of OLED displays on phones, you probably think of Samsung's Super AMOLED. However, LG is a larger display manufacturer overall. Most of its phones and retail panels are LCD, and the few forays into OLED haven't been awesome. However, with the decision to pump a few billion dollars into research, LG Display could quickly catch up. Read More
Wondering what the Nexus 5 2015 "Bullhead" that we've been speculating about for the last three months might look like? An alleged leaked photo of the phone might be our first glimpse. Indonesian Google+ user Inno Yudha posted the photo above to a Nexus enthusiast community on Sunday afternoon (US time). He gave no indication of what it is, but based on the clear "Nexus" label on the rear, the "not for sale" markers, and the general size, many are speculating that this is a pre-retail version of LG's Nexus phone.
We're pretty skeptical about this one. On the one hand it roughly matches fan-made renders published last week. Read More
