Hands-On And First Impressions With The LG G5 ("And Friends") At MWC 2016 (Video)

Hands-On And First Impressions With The LG G5 ("And Friends") At MWC 2016 (Video)

The LG G5 is the dark horse to Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge here at MWC, no doubt. While LG has received increasing critical acclaim and its flagship G series gained many fans in recent years, the mainstream smartphone narrative firmly places LG products in the shadow of those of their domestic rival. Could the G5 finally change the conversation and help LG stand out? If it doesn't, it certainly won't be for a lack of trying - the G5 is easily the most dramatic evolution of LG's smartphones in several years. Whether that evolution will translate to sales, or even a substantially better phone, though, remains unclear.

LG's Factory Reset Protection Can Be Bypassed In Mere Minutes

LG's Factory Reset Protection Can Be Bypassed In Mere Minutes

Google added factory reset protection to Android in Lollipop 5.1 last year, but not all devices implement Android in exactly the same way. That has led to some potential methods to bypass the account check. "RootJunky" already managed to find a workaround for Samsung phones, and now there's one for LG devices as well. It only takes a few minutes to get around factory reset protection.

Nokia 9 passes through FCC with 5.5" OLED display, 3,250mAh battery, and Android 8.0

Over the course of the past year, HMD Global has released a variety of smartphones under the Nokia brand. The mid-range Nokia 6 was first, followed by the lower-end 5 and 3. Then a flagship phone, the Nokia 8, was released. It seemed like HMD's lineup was complete, but apparently not.

A 'Nokia 9' has been in the rumor mill for a while, with a few details occasionally cropping up. Back in October, OnLeaks (working with Indian site CompareRaja) showed off a 3D render of the Nokia 9. FCC documents for the phone have now been published online, and they reveal some of the phone's specifications.

Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 review: It seems like $1,500 should get you more

Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45 review: It seems like $1,500 should get you more

Smartwatches haven't exactly taken off. In fact, a number of electronics companies have pulled back on plans for Android Wear including Motorola, Sony, and Asus. That's left fewer smartphone makers in the fray, but there are also fashion designers and traditional watch designers dabbling in Wear. We will see a lot more of these smartwatches in 2017, and one of them is the extremely spendy Tag Heuer Connected Modular 45.

As Samsung announces big profits, LG's mobile unit loses $132 million in Q2 due to slow G5 sales

As Samsung announces big profits, LG's mobile unit loses $132 million in Q2 due to slow G5 sales

LG's mobile business has regularly been on the knife's edge of profitability over the years, and after last year's lackluster G4, the company likely hoped the more adventurous G5 would help pay the smartphone arm's bills and, perhaps, even deliver a profit to the unit. Unfortunately, according to LG's Q2 2016 fiscal results released today, that effort has not paid off.

LG Mobile reported an operating loss of $132 million for the second quarter, the first full fiscal quarter the G5 was on sale in major markets (it launched April 1st here in the US). This is especially dismal given that it marks only a very modest improvement over LG's Q1 results for its mobile unit, which saw losses of around $168 million.
