LG's 4K LED TVs with Google Assistant are ridiculously cheap on Amazon today only - $437 for 55" and $556 for 65"

They say the bigger the TV, the better the quarantine. Okay, okay, I say that. But seriously, since movie theaters probably won't be safe for a while, upgrading your home theater setup is the next best thing.  And today only, Amazon is offering up both 55" and 65" 4K Ultra HD Smart TVs made by LG for some super low prices starting at just $436.99 — a $462.01 savings.

LG Velvet arrives at T-Mobile with MediaTek 5G chipset and $588 price tag

LG Velvet arrives at T-Mobile with MediaTek 5G chipset and $588 price tag

It's always unusual when one variant of a phone gets different specs than all the others, but that's what's happened with T-Mobile's LG Velvet. For some reason, T-Mobile decided they wanted a Velvet with a MediaTek chipset — something no other Velvet variant globally has. Plus, it has a smaller battery. Granted, this model is pretty cheap at $588, but we'd expect a little more discount for the lesser specs.

Dual-screen LG Wing gets leaked again, rumored to cost $1,000 in US

Dual-screen LG Wing gets leaked again, rumored to cost $1,000 in US

While much of the smartphone industry looks to folding screens for the future of handset design, LG sure seems to have different tastes. Though LG phones have long had secondary displays in some form, the last few have stepped that up with full-size Dual Screen accessories.  Earlier this year we heard about a new effort that would try something else entirely — now a short video of this alleged LG Wing has surfaced, giving us a look at a rotating dual-screen phone that’s unlike anything else out there.

It came to AT&T late in July and is eventually going to make it to T-Mobile, but we now know exactly when Verizon will bring it to customers.

LG Velvet review: Different doesn't necessarily mean 'better'

LG Velvet review: Different doesn't necessarily mean 'better'

LG could use a win. While it once innovated with modular hardware and pushing the whole industry past 16:9 screens, it's been hard to find any unambiguous successes over the last few generations of G- and V-series flagships. That's not to say that they weren't decently good phones, but none really stood out — maybe the V40 was one of the best, but even then we couldn't recommend paying big money for it. Is it time to take things back to the drawing board?

LG Stylo 6 review: Stuttering and lag all but ruin LG's cheap Galaxy Note alternative

LG Stylo 6 review: Stuttering and lag all but ruin LG's cheap Galaxy Note alternative

If you've ever been to a prepaid carrier store in America, there's a good chance you've seen one particular LG phone: the Stylo. As much as LG has struggled to gain notoriety for its high-end smartphone (despite some of them being totally decent), the Stylo has remained shockingly popular among consumers, and is now into its sixth generation. I reviewed the Stylo 5 when it was released last year, and I thought it was a decent option for anyone looking for a Galaxy Note-style device on a budget.

LG has now released the Stylo 6, and equipped it with a truly massive 6.8-inch display, Android 10, and the same capacitive stylus (versus the digitizer stylus on Samsung's Notes) as usual.

T-Mobile shuts down Sprint's 5G network to redeploy spectrum

T-Mobile shuts down Sprint's 5G network to redeploy spectrum

T-Mobile will shut down Sprint's 5G network in order to rework its spectrum into its own 5G grid. While those with a Galaxy S20 series device on Sprint will be able to use 5G on either network, other 5G phone owners will eventually have to migrate to those S20s. The upcoming changes have been announced as the recently-merged carriers begin integrating their separate cellular infrastructure into a cohesive network — a process that's expected to take 3 years.

LG V60 is picking up its May security update on Verizon

LG V60 is picking up its May security update on Verizon

Google has gotten a bit stricter with requiring OEMs to add Android's security updates over the years, but that doesn't mean companies are actually on board. LG's Software Update Center may be running at full power, but everything from last-minute bugs to carrier certification can hold up Android updates. It's almost July, but LG's new dual-screen capable device is only now receiving the May security patch.
