Today we got our first official look at the LG G6 and while it is miles better than last year’s flagship, it is expected to be lower specced than any of the other flagship phones coming out later this year. Based on everything we do know about the handset, are you considering the G6 as your next smartphone?
In this day in age, there are dozens of different ways to stream movies, TV shows, and live events. The difficulty, though, is that some events and shows limit who and where people can watch them. One of the hardest events stream live, without physical cable, is the Oscars…
The LG G6 was announced today at Mobile World Congress featuring a 5.7-inch display with an 18:9 aspect ratio. The handset’s abnormally tall screen makes it easier to use two applications at the same time on top of each other but it also makes for unusually thin wallpapers. All of the wallpapers seen below are the stock images that come with LG’s latest flagship…
Last year, LG’s attempt to make a modular smartphone with the G5 ended up being more or less a flop. This year, the company has shaken up their mobile platform by announcing the LG G6 with a complete redesign, a better software experience, and a fantastic dual camera setup. Thankfully, it has been confirmed that the LG G6 will be available on all four of the major US carriers…
Product announcements are getting on their way at Mobile World Congress, and up next is the phone that could easily go down as the most leaked device of 2017: the LG G6. While we aren’t expecting to learn too much about the handset that we didn’t already know, the livestream for the event starts at 12PM CET (6AM EST) and you can watch it on almost all of your devices…
This is it. We are now on the verge of Mobile World Congress. This means that we will see companies from all over the world meet in Barcelona to announce their latest and greatest mobile devices. While it is rumored that Samsung will only be giving us a sneak peak of the S8 at the show, we are expecting a bunch of other handsets to be shown off. So, which phone are you most excited to see announced at MWC?
Samsung has officially announced that the Secure Folder application that leaked several days ago is now available for the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. Now you don’t have to worry about anyone with access to your phone snooping through any private photos, documents, or information… as long as you’ve stored everything in Secure Folder…
Update: Google has acknowledged that they experienced an issue with the Google Accounts engine which reverted some user’s Google Wi-Fi and OnHub routers to their initial state. Unfortunately, if yours was reset, you will have to set it up again for it to work.
For the last couple of hours, users have been receiving Google account notifications stating that account action was required. If you’re like us, we immediately thought that someone was trying to hack into our emails. Thankfully, Google has now confirmed that they’ve received reports of these incidents but not to worry as it isn’t due to suspicious activity… expand full story
Over the past 24 hours, we’ve received reports that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S8 will sport a 5.8-inch screen, while the S8+ will be packing a ginormous 6.2-inch display. While most flagships these days tend to have larger screens, Samsung appears to be going to the extreme. Do you think these screens are too big?
The internet is full of scams and false advertisements that target unsuspecting users and attempt to get them to download malicious software. Unfortunately, this problem looks like it will only get worse. Now, a new piece of malware is making the rounds and is affecting Chrome users on Windows and potentially macOS…
Along with the release of Android Wear 2.0 this month, Google and LG announced two new smartwatches: the Watch Sport and Watch Style. We recently reviewed both of these smartwatches, and now we want to know if either of them interest you. If not, what other smartwatch (if any) are you interested in potentially picking up?
Smartwatches tend to range from incredibly basic, offering not much more than just notifications, to supercomputers that have everything built-in while also making the watch big and bulky. Ultimately, the smartwatch that most customers want is one that lands somewhere in between these two categories. The LG Watch Style is an Android Wear 2.0 device that resides more on the basic side of the spectrum but at least it does the basics extremely well…
A report emerged this morning claiming that Samsung might bring back the Galaxy Note 7. This is exciting news as the Note 7 was one of the best selling and most popular smartphones of 2016. So popular, in fact, that Samsung had to roll out firmware updates that intentionally bricked handsets so that owners would actually return their possibly dangerous devices.
With Samsung potentially selling refurbished models of the Note 7, would you consider buying one?
We told you today that SVP of Android, Hiroshi Lockheimer, teased Android fans everywhere with a tweet about Oreos. Every new version of Android is named after a tasty treat or dessert, and since the current version is Android Nougat, we can assume that the next version will be Android O.
So does that mean that Google might name the next version of the operating system Oreo… or something else?
We are quickly approaching Mobile World Congress, which means we are only weeks away from the official announcement of the LG G6. While LG hasn’t told us anything about the phone itself, leaked photographs of the handset have shown off a display with rounded corners. While some people think this looks good and differentiates the G6, others aren’t too fond of it…
