Nexus details leak with LG and Huawei releasing two phones

Two Nexus devices, not just one, have been tipped to be coming from Google later this year.

Like the LG device, a larger Huawei Nexus smartphone will have a fingerprint sensor, USB-C, and will work with a 5.7-inch display. These two devices will likely turn up within the next couple of months.

Samsung swiftly followed with a similar promise.

Released as the LG Gentle in Korea, the LG Wine Smart offers a bit of old fashioned style, if you're willing to live with the rather low specs.

LG G4 Wins Blind Camera Test vs iPhone 6 and Galaxy S6 in low light

This past week we ran a Blind Camera Test between the LG G4, the Samsung Galaxy S6, and the iPhone 6 with a number of photos taken in low-lighting environments. We placed photos taken by each smartphone next to one another without the names of their devices attached and asked you, the readers, to vote on which photos looked best. Not which photos looked most color-correct, not which photos were sharpest - though those could have been your criteria if you'd wanted. This was a test of objective desires.

LG Bello II drops old design, gains 5MP selfie cam

If you're a bit tired of seeing the same LG stylistic touches by now, meaning rear button controls, then you might like the different take that the LG Bello II has. That is, if you're in the market for a 3G-only budget smartphone. LG has just announced the existence of its second "Bello" mobile, once again earmarked for certain emerging markets. The LG Bello II, however, is noticeably different from its predecessor, but don't let it fool you. Like what they say about beauty, it's mostly skin deep.

LG G4 Beat joins the G4 groove with mid-range specs

LG G4 Beat joins the G4 groove with mid-range specs

Another day, another LG G4 variant. Early this month we spotted a certain LG G4 S making its way through the Internet and it seems that the sources were more or less spot on. Properly called the LG G4s, that particular model, however, is meant for Europe and CIS regions, which is accurate considering where the leak originally came from. To the rest of the world, however, particularly in Latin America and Asia, the mid-tier smartphone will take on the name of the LG G4 Beat.
