ASUS chair isn’t a Windows 10 Mobile believer

ASUS chair isn’t a Windows 10 Mobile believer

Microsoft is putting all its eggs in the Windows 10 basket almost literally. The next version of the operating system will run on all its supported hardware, which includes not just PCs or tablets, but even smartphones and, yes, the Xbox. But while some OEMs like LG, who just recently launched a new Windows Phone, are in on the game, one major name isn't joining the singing. Based on the words aired by ASUS chairman Jonney Shih, his company isn't jumping on the Windows 10 Mobile wagon just yet.

LG creates stick-on OLED TV screen less than 1mm thick

LG creates stick-on OLED TV screen less than 1mm thick

LG Display just unveiled a new, ultra-thin television screen that is less than one millimeter thick, at an industry event in its home country, Korea. LG's current thinnest TV screen is a 55-inch OLED panel that is 4.3 mm thick. So, four of these new screens stacked together are still thinner than LG's thinnest screen on the market. This new display won't be available in stores anytime soon. The design revealed in Seoul is a proof-of-concept showing that the technology is possible even though production costs may not be low enough to be practical, yet.

LG G4 Stylus, G4c: G4 in name, mid-range in nature

LG G4 Stylus, G4c: G4 in name, mid-range in nature

Like before, LG is going to squeeze out every bit that it can from a winning name. Just as the LG G3 last year had almost half a dozen devices bearing its name, none of which even comes close to the flagship's specs, so to the LG G4. Although it already has an LG G Stylo, LG is announcing a rebrand of the stylus-bearing smartphone named, of course, the G4 Stylus. And the LG G4c we saw leaked last week is also now official. Both squarely aimed at the mid-range market.

AT&T’s LG Escape2 is the LG Spirit in spirit

AT&T’s LG Escape2 is the LG Spirit in spirit

Some carriers tend to rename their versions of a particular device, perhaps just to set it apart from the competition. That seems to be the case here with the AT&T LG Escape2. Yes, there is no whitespace in between the "Escape" and the "2". In many aspects, the Escape2 is pretty similar to the LG Spirit launched just last March. That, however, doesn't mean that the Escape2 won't be interesting, especially for a mid-range LG smartphone that is coming on the heels of the LG G4.

LG G4 begins its global journey

LG G4 begins its global journey

If you've been on the edge of your seats waiting for LG's flagship to finally land on the market, then the wait is over for you. Somewhat. The Korean OEM has just signaled the start of the rollout of the LG G4 in "key markets" around the world. That said, it hasn't given exact dates or even prices, especially for the US. It also doesn't seem to be prioritizing the usual countries were big players make a big splash, giving way, instead, to those in emerging markets first.

LG Watch Urbane Review – All that glitters isn’t gold

LG Watch Urbane Review – All that glitters isn’t gold

You can understand why Android enthusiasts might be resentful of the Apple Watch. Android Wear has been around long enough for manufacturers like LG to release several generations of smartwatch, but listen to some and you’d be excused for thinking Cupertino had invented the segment. Into the fray wades the LG Watch Urbane, promising genteel luxury instead of geek chic, and first to offer the very latest version of Android Wear itself, complete with a number of hotly-anticipated updates. $349 is a lot to ask for an Android smartwatch, though: is the Urbane worth it?

It’s the LG G4’s turn to get a brutal drop test

It’s the LG G4’s turn to get a brutal drop test

The Samsung twin flagships have had their fun, sort of, so now it's LG's turn in the spotlight. Considering the rivalry between the two Korean companies, it feels fair to subject the LG G4 to the same torture, er, tests as the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. After all, the G4 is not as fragile-looking as the other two. So will it blend? Or rather, will it crack? YouTube user TechRax, who claims to have been "smashing technology since 2011", for the sake of science, of course, finds out.

Praise be: The LG G4 has Quick Charge 2.0 after all

Praise be: The LG G4 has Quick Charge 2.0 after all

LG has confirmed that the G4 smartphone does, in fact, support Qualcomm's rapid charging system for speedier top-ups, despite initially claiming the feature was absent. Quick Charge 2.0 is one of the more appreciated abilities of recent Snapdragon chipsets, capable of potentially taking a device from dead to more than halfway charged in under thirty minutes, so we were understandably confused when LG initially told us it would be missing from the flagship G4.

Smaller, cheaper LG G4 leaked as G4c

Smaller, cheaper LG G4 leaked as G4c

If you're a follower of LG and their yearly flagship smartphone, what you're looking at might give you a bit of a feeling of déjà vu. Much like last year's Android-powered G3 saw a number of low and mid-range variation models, such as the G3 Beat, G3 Stylus, and G3 Vigor, the brand new LG G4 seems to be getting the same treatment. A few specs and images have recently leaked, revealing a smaller, cheaper LG smartphone, accompanied by the name G4c.

LG G4 Review – The hero Android needs

LG G4 Review – The hero Android needs

Life’s not so good when you’re stuck in the shadow of a big rival with deep pockets, but if anything can drag LG into the sunlight, it’s the new G4. LG’s flagship Android smartphone for 2015, the G4 takes what we loved about the G3 before it - and made it into the Android-to-have among those in the know - and hits the boost button. Screen, camera, performance, all have been in line for an upgrade. Nonetheless, the rest of the mobile world hasn’t stood still either, so does the G4 have what it takes to push back against Samsung’s excellent Galaxy S6?
