LG Aristo on T-Mobile, MetroPCS offer bang, style for buck

LG Aristo on T-Mobile, MetroPCS offer bang, style for buck

Buying a smartphone, more often than not, involves a series of compromises, usually between price, feature, and design. Lately, however, design has stopped being an issue, with even the most wallet-friendly models sporting better-looking bodies. Take for example the LG Aristo, now available on T-Mobile and MetroPCS, which is, through and through, a lower mid-range smartphone, but one that you won’t be embarrassed to hold in public.

LG G6 promised not to explode

LG G6 promised not to explode

The incident involving the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has had everybody reeling, from consumers all the way up to other smartphone makers. 2017 will most likely be marked by OEMs boasting about how safe their smartphone will be, particularly when it comes to batteries and heat management. LG is kicking off that trend by explaining the steps it has taken to ensure the utmost safety of their smartphones. And while it specifically names the LG V20 in its piece, given the timing, there is very little doubt those same points will apply to the upcoming LG G6 as well.

LG G6 features teased by LG itself

What would be your ideal smartphone? If you were to ask a hundred people, you're bound to get half as much different answers. And yet LG seems to have whittled that down to just five.

LG G6 to beat Galaxy S8 to market

LG G6 to beat Galaxy S8 to market

It seems that the rivalry between Samsung and LG will be coming back in full swing this year, especially after Samsung revealed its vulnerability. Ironically, LG might actually be taking a page out of Samsung's book in doing so. According to Korean media, the LG G6, name still unconfirmed, is scheduled to launch early in South Korea, right in the first week of March.

LG G6 will have an odd 18:9 5.7-inch screen

LG G6 will have an odd 18:9 5.7-inch screen

Gone are the days when screen aspect ratios were simple. Though there’s really no one ratio to rule them all, you could expect screens to fall under either 16:10, 16:9, or the square-ish 4:3. Nowadays, you have resolutions like 3:2 or the ridiculously wide 21:9, which can be found on some new monitors. LG, who makes some of those monitors, is once again pushing the envelope with a new 18:9 screen for smartphones from LG Display. And in case you missed it, that might very well be the LG G6’s screen.

LG giving up on modular design with G6 smartphone

As was rumored as far back as October, LG has essentially admitted that its take on the modular smartphone with last year's G5 hasn't panned out, and it will be moving away from the strategy with the upcoming LG G6. Fortunately the company isn't giving up on smartphones altogether after the G5 and its add-on "Friends" modules flopped with consumers, with LG's Chief Technologist Skott Ahn telling the Wall Street Journal that it's "not something we would consider."
