LG's mobile unit loses $117 Million in Q2 2017, blames it on poor LG G6 sales

LG has announced its second-quarter results for the 2017 and things don't look too good for the mobile division, yet again. While both the Home Appliance & Air Solution unit and the Home Entertainment unit have brought in profits ($412.5M and $303.8M, respectively), thanks to strong sales of fridges, washing machines, and OLED TVs, the Mobile Communications division continues to bleed billions of Korean won.

According to LG, the mobile unit had $2.39B in revenue, but the operating margin was again a loss of $117.27M. That's slightly less than last year's Q2 where the unit lost $132M largely due to the G5's mitigated reception.

Xiaomi unveils MIUI 9 with improved performance, better resource allocation, and a new smart assistant

MIUI has been, up to this point, pretty polarizing. Xiaomi's Android "skin" has its fans (and staunch fanboys), and it has its critics (and haters). I have never found myself enjoying the very custom take on Android, mainly due to a few annoyances that have persisted through versions. In my Mi 6 review, I said that it was time for the software to get a refresh, and it looks like Xiaomi has made an attempt to do just that. Cue MIUI 9.

Sharp Aquos S1 and S2 bezel-less phones leaked, S2 reportedly has under-glass fingerprint reader

Sharp hasn't sold phones in North America for a while, but the company is still working on some very interesting devices. Back in 2014, it released the Aquos Crystal, one of the first "bezel-less" phones to hit the market (I use that term loosely, because it had a massive bottom bezel). Now it appears to be working on two similar phones, the Sharp Aquos S1 and S2.

Google is ditching Instant Search because most searches happen on mobile

Google announced an incredible, revolutionary thing in 2010. No, not Android 2.2 Froyo. I'm talking about Instant Search, a feature that would load suggestions and search results dynamically as you typed. It was hailed as a major advance in 2010, but today Google announced Instant Search is dead, and it was mobile that killed it.

Chromebooks may soon sync your SMS notifications

Google can't seem to decide on a chat protocol and stick with it for any length of time, but SMS has been around for years and will continue to exist long into the future. The problem: it's tied to your phone. Some third-party apps can sync notifications to your computer, but Google looks to be preparing a built-in SMS connection for Chrome OS.
