Project Fi only recently let non-Google phones join the party. Today, Fi has announced that two of those phones now come with a pretty enticing incentive. Purchasing either the LG G7 ThinQ or the V35 ThinQ from the carrier will net you $300 in service credit. Depending on how much data you use each month, that could go a long way. Read More
As everyone is well aware of by now, TWRP is by far and away the most popular custom recovery for Android devices today. It covers a huge variety of phones and tablets, and more are constantly being added. This time around, the additions include the Sony Xperia X and X Compact, Moto E4, US unlocked LG G5, and more.

Most of us probably focus on flagships in the news—after all, it's the high-performance, expensive devices that get all the fun new features first—but there are plenty of other phones out there. The majority of people probably don't concern themselves with picking up the latest and greatest gadgets, and mid-range phones like Samsung's Galaxy J7 fill that niche. So those on a budget picking up a phone from T-Mobile or AT&T now have some added choice starting today, as Samsung's Galaxy J7 has arrived at both carriers. As an added bonus, T-Mobile also now has the LG Stylo 4. Read More
Google's Project Fi service has always offered compelling pricing, but the phone selection was severely limited. It recently announced a handful of new devices, and two of them start shipping today. The LG G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ can be yours on Fi, but get ready to spend big to get them. Read More
T-Mobile has finally gotten around to pushing Oreo to the LG G6. This will be its first major update since launching, but it's still only landing on 8.0 rather than 8.1. At least it's an update. Feel free to head to the update menu and mash the button, but you'll probably have to wait a few days to get it on your device. Read More
Speaking to a source familiar with the company's plans, we've learned that LG is working on a successor to its V30 handset, tentatively known as the V40 - and it will feature five cameras. It's not clear exactly what all of them will do, but at least one of the two on the front (and possibly both) will allow you to unlock the phone with your face. Based on the setup process described to us, it seems this could be a stereo configuration allowing a 3D map of the face to be recorded - but we're not certain.
The three cameras on the rear - a configuration we've only seen yet on Huawei's P20 Pro - include a standard wide lens, LG's signature ultrawide lens, and a third sensor for an as-yet undetermined purpose. Read More
Late last month, Project Fi announced that the Moto G6, LG G7, and LG V35 would be added to the lineup. The Moto G6 went up for pre-order that same day, but the G7 and V35 were said to be coming "next month." Well, it's now the next month, and the G7 and V35 can now be pre-ordered from Fi. Read More
The LG V30S ThinQ just keeps dropping in price. The phone originally launched at an astronomical $929.99, but B&H quickly realized that nobody wants to pay that much for a slightly better V30 and dropped the price to $729.99. Near the end of May, the price dropped yet again to $679.99. It's now been reduced by another $80 to $599.99, but that price is available for today only. Read More
Some smartphone manufacturers have their own bootloader unlock tools, and LG is one of them. It made its debut back in 2015 with the H815 G4, but it's since added plenty more phones to the roster. Two of the latest phones to join are the G7 and V30, though only the European models are currently supported. Read More
While the Android One program was initially intended to be something more akin to what Android Go is now, it's still a simple, bloat-free version of the OS that gets faster updates than skinned OEM devices. Until Nokia decided to go all in with Android One, there was very little choice when it came to devices, but it looks like other manufacturers are coming around to the benefits.
Rumors have been circulating for a little while that LG is planning to release an Android One smartphone. XDA Developers has been digging around for evidence, and it looks like we can expect a variant of the LG Q7 to launch running a vanilla Android build. Read More
