After the public release of the LG Watch Style and Watch Sport, the first watches running Android Wear 2.0, many wondered when the update would reach other watches. Over the past two weeks or so, the update has finally started to roll out, and the LG G Watch R and LG Watch Urbane (1st Gen) are up next. Read More
LG's G6 has been getting a lot of praise since its announcement. It doesn't just fix the issues faced by many with the G5, it also ups the game with great build quality that survived the torture of master phone-wrecker JerryRigEverything and a balanced mix of features that impressed our resident cynical-reviewer David Ruddock.
After being available in South Korea for a couple of weeks, the G6 is ready for its global launch and that's happening starting today. The flagship will become available for purchase in "key countries in North America, Asia, Europe, Central and South America over the course of the next several weeks." That's pretty vague but it should mean that the wait is getting shorter if you live in a country where LG traditionally launches its devices quickly enough. Read More
LG isn't really well known for building strong, reliable smartphones. Last year's G5 was a build quality nightmare, and even its newer phones are still bootlooping (on a completely unrelated note, check out our Nexus 5X long-term review). With the G6, though, LG incorporated a beefy metal frame, as well as some other little tweaks that make this 2017 flagship one of the more durable phones that JerryRigEverything has tested. Read More
Well that was quick. Just a month after the LG Watch Style went on sale, it's already being heavily marked down. Now you can get all colors of the LG Watch Style for just $179.99 - between $70 and $100 off the original price (depending on the model). Read More
If the G5 was the low watermark for LG's mobile division, you might think there was only really up to go for LG in 2017. The G6 can feel like a self-fulfilling prophecy that way: the narrative around the G5 was almost universally negative, and the idea that 2017 would yield a "comeback" product from LG seemed to become a given. After all, it was obvious what LG did wrong last year, so how could they not address these issues?
At the same time, we often find ourselves saying tech companies make a habit of poor product decisions year after year, so it's never quite a sure thing that a new gadget really will check the very-obvious-to-us boxes we've communally decided are so important. Read More
LG has already announced the G6, its flagship for this year, but people on a budget are not to be left out. The Korean manufacturer unveiled the K20, the successor to last year's K10. The specs are pretty low-end, but that is to be expected. Strangely enough, the T-Mobile version (K20 Plus) and the Verizon one (K20 V) have some slightly different specs from each other. Read More
Sometimes it's hard to defend LG and its "me-too" strategy of always trying to launch the exact same thing Samsung does, but several months or years later. This case is another example, although the details do appear a little encouraging in LG's favor.
The company has officially announced today that it made an agreement with Dynamics Inc., a US-based company that has developed a Wireless Magnetic Communication technology that's similar to Samsung's MST but with a different algorithm, to start using said tech in LG Pay. The service is supposed to launch in South Korea in June, with the first official phone being the G6 since it already has all the necessary hardware. A firmware update may bring LG Pay to other devices later in the year as well. Read More
The LG G6 was announced around three weeks ago, but as is typical with phone launches, we haven't heard much regarding availability aside from acknowledgement from all four major operators that they will be carrying the phone. Several carriers have now revealed details on their G6's pricing and availability. We'll continue to update this list as more info comes out. Read More
Okay look, the LG G5 was not a successful phone. There's little reason at this point to run out and buy one, but that doesn't mean there's no reason. LG just added the US unlocked model (RS988) to its bootloader unlocking tool. If you need a fast phone with an unlockable bootloader, there are worse choices. Read More
The LG G6 was officially revealed nearly a month ago, after virtually every aspect of the phone was already leaked. If you're planning on buying it, you can now secure a pre-order from Verizon, AT&T, and Best Buy. Read More
