The last time I bought an LG smartphone — the unabashedly brown G2x — I had to return it after a few weeks because it would randomly reboot if I so much as looked at it funny. From then on, I convinced myself that I just couldn’t buy another LG phone. They just weren’t worth the headache.
After playing with LG’s Optimus G Pro here at MWC, I’m starting to rethink that decision. → Read More
LG is cooking up a few different versions of its forthcoming flagship, the Optimus G Pro. According to various reports and leaks, the South Korea-bound iteration will look a lot like the Galaxy Note, sporting a 5.5-inch display as opposed to the 5-inch display in the Japanese version.
There are whole host of new smartphones waiting for their time to shine at Mobile World Congress (not to mention an event or two before the big show), but you’re in luck if you’re a domestic Android fan smitten with LG and Google’s Nexus 4. The hard-to-obtain handset first reappeared in the German Google Play Store earlier today, and now those of you in the U.S. can finally purchase one again too. → Read More
LG held its press conference this morning at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, and while there wasn’t much unveiled that we haven’t seen before from the Korean company, there were smart home appliance updates that promise to make the connected home a much more easy-to-use experience for the average consumer. LG was clearly pushing smart home tech, and made a point of illustrating what it means by the concept… → Read More
The Google Nexus 4 has been a very popular device – maybe too popular, with supplies of the handset scarce since its initial launch, and Google having to push back anticipated delivery windows for even those few customers who managed to buy one before Google stopped accepting new orders. Google’s UK and Ireland managing director Dan Cobley finally ascribed some blame in the situation, taking to… → Read More
It seems like ages since Google and HTC first kicked off the Nexus experiment (it was 2010, but who’s counting?). Now here we are, over two years later, and we’re on our fourth Nexus smartphone. There’s no question that the hardware has gotten progressively better, but these past few months have also seen some notable changes in the Nexus brand itself.
With devices like the Nexus 7 picking… → Read More
After having seen its mug plastered all over the internet in the days leading up to its release, actually playing with LG and Google’s new Nexus 4 seemed a bit anti-climactic. I mean, when you’ve seen a device like that cracked open and posed for your pleasure, it felt like there wasn’t much I didn’t already know about the thing.
Oh how wrong I was. → Read More
LG has been getting plenty of attention these days because of some recent carrier announcements (case in point: Sprint announced it would carry the LG Mach and Optimus G), but that’s not all the LG hardware here at MobileCON 2012. T-Mobile recently outed a new LG device of its own — the decidedly mid-range Optimus L9 — and I spent a few moments getting to know it a little better. → Read More
