AT&T Wi-Fi calling on Android continues rally away from cellular

AT&T Wi-Fi calling on Android continues rally away from cellular

The end of cellular phone call service is coming. AT&T's Wi-Fi calling and text messaging is the next step towards that goal. While it may not be the intent of mobile device carriers to move completely away from cellular service, that is indeed the trend. AT&T's latest move is to enable Wi-Fi Calling on "select Android devices" - for now that includes the LG G4 and a variety of iPhone devices only.

OnePlus 3 Review Part II: Display VS iPhone 6s, Galaxy S7, and more

We're about to show you what the OnePlus 3's display looks like near the rest of the top smartphones on the market today. This means we're looking at the Samsung Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 6s. It means we're looking at the LG G5 and the HTC 10. It means we're comparing to the Nexus 6P and the Huawei P9, too. We're looking for brightness, color intensity, and - to a lesser extent - we're looking at screen size, too.

Magnetic Resonance Wireless Charging coming to LG smartphone

One of the things that makes dealing with a smartphone on a daily basis is more streamlined and convenient is wireless charging. Typically, with wireless charging we are talking about magnetic induction charging where the user has to place their smartphone directly on a charge mat or surface to get power. LG has reportedly finished the development of a smartphone that charges wirelessly using magnetic resonance.

T-Mobile LG G Pad X 8.0 is the G Pad III in disguise

T-Mobile LG G Pad X 8.0 is the G Pad III in disguise

Earlier this week, LG revealed its latest Android tablet, the mid-range G Pad III 8.0. Given how few Android tablets come from major OEMs these days, it is perhaps still good news, no matter how not premium it is. It does have a few things going for it, enough it seems for T-Mobile to sign up for it. Except it is going by a different name in the US. The carrier has just added an LG G Pad X 8.0 to its roster, which, aside from the name and perhaps LTE bands, is pretty much the same G Pad III 8.0.

X-Men “themed” LG X series tipped to land in the US in July

X-Men “themed” LG X series tipped to land in the US in July

Perhaps LG has clairvoyant mutants in its employ who foresaw how the company could make it big with an "X" branded smartphone lineup. Or, more realistically, LG just had the good fortune of having an X series ready by the time the not-so-bad X-Men: Apocalypse hit theaters. Either way, the OEM isn't shy about capitalizing on the attention that the film is getting. Inside sources claim that LG will launch its mid-range X series smartphones in the US, Europe, and Latin America in July. And, of course, it is matching those devices with Marvel's most famous mutants.

LG X Style, X Power put on display in Ukraine

LG X Style, X Power put on display in Ukraine

There might soon be a confusion in the Android smartphone market because of the collision of "X" names. While Lenovo/Motorola is moving away from the Moto X, Sony has adopted the Xperia X for its flagship. There's also Samsung's rumored foldable smartphone, the Galaxy X. And then there's LG, who already put out the X cam and X screen early this year (not to mention a sighting of an LG X5). The latter is puffing up its X-team with an upcoming LG X Style and LG X Power, whose names may or may not reflect their features.

LG Stylus 2 Plus begins its global rollout in Taiwan

LG Stylus 2 Plus begins its global rollout in Taiwan

While stylus-empowered smartphones are more commonly associated with Samsung, this Korean manufacturer doesn't have the monopoly in that market. To remind consumers of that fact, its eternal rival LG has just announced the launch of its LG Stylus 2 Plus, which it first revealed back in February even before MWC 2016 started. But while Samsung's Galaxy Note line walks along the path of the high-end and sometimes experimental, the LG Stylus 2 Plus clearly has its sights set on delivering an affordable writing experience.

LG G Pad III 8.0 is yet another generation of mid-range slabs

LG G Pad III 8.0 is yet another generation of mid-range slabs

The Android world is perhaps in dire need of respectable, high-end tablets that would put the platform head to head again with Apple's new iPad generation. Despite the proliferation of low to mid-range slates, even major OEMs aren't stepping up to fill in that gap. Samsung has seemingly stopped making premium Android tablets but LG doesn't seem to be in rush to snatch that market either. It does have a new Android tablet, the LG G Pad III 8.0, but it probably hardly qualifies as a tablet that can challenge something like an iPad mini 4.

LG X5 trademark, omens of less premium G5 sighted

LG X5 trademark, omens of less premium G5 sighted

Just when you though OEMs were already settled in their own, single-letter kingdoms, they kick up the dust once again. Sony drops the Z for the X and Lenovo/Motorola drops the X for the Z. While LG has more or less been happy with its G, it has also recently put out an X screen and an X cam. Now it seems it like the Korean OEM is preparing to have another X join its army. A trademark filed in Korea reveals LG trying to reserve the rights to an "X5", hinting at what might be a cheaper version of the LG G5.

LG G5 “Friends” now available in the US, sans B&O Hi-Fi DAC

LG G5 “Friends” now available in the US, sans B&O Hi-Fi DAC

It's been more than a month since the LG G5 officially launched in the US, but it is only today that LG finally released the "Friends" that actually made the LG G5 truly special. After all, the smartphone's modular doesn't really serve any purpose if it doesn't have modules to use. In any case, fans and would be buyers can breathe a sigh of relief now that the CAM Plus, 360 CAM, 360 VR, and TONE Platinum are available for purchase. Sadly, it seems the speculations were spot on, and the Hi-Fi DAC module is indeed missing from the set.
