LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE hands-on: Android Wear gets 4G

LG put style to the fore with the original Watch Urbane, but for the Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE it's connectivity that's most important. The new Android Wear smartwatch is the first running Google's OS to pack an integrated LTE radio, complete with its own nanoSIM so that it can get online when your phone - or the nearest WiFi network - is out of range.

LG Watch Urbane 2 now has both Android Wear and LTE

LG Watch Urbane 2 now has both Android Wear and LTE

When LG unveiled the classy Watch Urbane, it was quickly followed by the independent Watch Urbane LTE. The latter was almost perfect except for one thing. It ran on LG's own webOS platform, which isn't exactly the most widely used mobile platform around. Now LG is correcting that "mistake" by putting out the 2nd edition of the LG Watch Urbane. As fashionable as its Android Wear predecessor, this second generation not only bumps up some of the specs, it also now carries it own network weight with 4G connectivity.

LG V10 touts Second Screen, dual front cams, manual video mode

The covers are off and LG does indeed have a "dual screen" V10 smartphone after all. But while it's strip of a display will definitely make some people curious, the LG V10 isn't a one-trick pony. Taking the strong points of the LG G4, the V10 tacks on more photography features to satisfy not only budding hobbyist photographers but also the selfie-loving crowd. With high end specs and a dual front camera, LG is positioning the V10 to be the ultimate partner for creatives always on the go.

LG Gram laptop looks to topple MacBook Air from ultra-light throne

LG Gram laptop looks to topple MacBook Air from ultra-light throne

LG has just announced its first line of laptops to come to the US, and they're aiming one rival in particular: Apple's MacBook Air. Dubbed the LG Gram as a nod to just light it is, the 14-inch laptop weighs only 2.16 pounds, less than the 11-inch MacBook Air. It's shipping with Windows 10, and even better is that it has Microsoft's "Signature Series" label, which means it comes with just the pure OS and no 3rd-party bloatware.

LG teases would could be the “V10” for October 1

LG teases would could be the “V10” for October 1

It will just be two days after Google reveals its Nexus smartphones, one of which is being made by the LG as well, but the Korean manufacturer seems quite confident enough to hold its own unveiling event on October 1. That's the date currently being teased by LG, complete with ambiguous video, for a new smartphone. Given how things have been flowing in the rumor mill, this could very well be the LG V10 that is believed to sport a standalone "ticker" at the top of its screen.

LG G4 is No. 2 in DxOMark’s camera benchmarks

LG G4 is No. 2 in DxOMark’s camera benchmarks

At long last, the LG G4 finally gets a proper photography benchmark. It still boggles the mind why DxOMark took this long to give LG's flagship a try, considering it was quick to try out the Moto X Style (probably with a little help from Motorola). Saving the best for last might come to mind. However, the LG G4 isn't actually the best but it is the next best, with a DxOMark score of 83, putting it right next to the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge in the Top 3 range.

Nexus 6P and 5X details boring, just like they’re supposed to be

Nexus 6P and 5X details boring, just like they’re supposed to be

When Google created the Nexus program for smartphones (and eventually tablets), they didn't intend to compete with Samsung. They didn't intend to put HTC out of business or drive LG out of the United States. Google wanted to create a program where they could bring their base vision for Android to life, and to do so with developers in mind. Sure, they sell these devices from their store to anyone - you can buy a Nexus device with support from almost any major carrier now, too. But don't be surprised when your new Nexus 5X doesn't have a camera as sharp as the iPhone 6s.

Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names tipped for new Google phones

Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names tipped for new Google phones

Google's next set of Nexus devices have had details leaked on hardware, software, and now naming schemes before launch. Word today is that the smaller of the two devices will be called Nexus 5X - that's the LG-made device. The larger of the two smartphones is said to be called Nexus 6P. Does the P stand for "Prints"? Or maybe it stands for "Power". Or it could stand for nothing at all - we wouldn't be entirely surprised whatever it ends up being.

LG MiniBeam PF1000U projector needs only 15-inches to throw a 100-inch image

LG MiniBeam PF1000U projector needs only 15-inches to throw a 100-inch image

The cheapest way to get the largest image possible in your living or media room is to go with a projector and a screen. The catch is that traditionally to get a large image, you need a large space to get the projector far enough away to throw that big image on the screen. LG has a new projector called the MiniBeam PF1000U that is designed to let you have a giant 100-inch image in a very small room.
