One of the very few, perhaps only two, 4K smartphone screens in the market. But for performance and battery life reasons, Sony doesn't make full use of that UHD screen all the time. But if you think it's well worth the consequences, you can easily force the Xperia XZ Premium to use that high density setting all the time with these relatively simple steps.

You can finally buy a $20K 77″ LG SIGNATURE 4K OLED TV W

Usually, it only takes a few months for a company to fully launch a new product after publicly announcing it. In LG's case, it took nearly half a year, but the wait may have been very well worth it. At least for those who could afford it. At CES last January, LG unveiled its new generation of "Signature" 4K OLED TVs and one in particular was obviously its star: the 77-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W that is so thin and even slightly flexible that it looks like it's part of your wallpaper.

43-inch LG 4K monitor crams four 1080p displays in one

When you have a huge monitor, like 42.5 inches huge, you'll probably never run out of space. In fact, you might actually run out of content sooner instead. That might be a lot of wasted screen real estate, especially when you have a 4K resolution. The upcoming LG 43UD79-B solves that problem by allowing users to put up to four displays in a grid, with each display showing content from a different source.
