LG G6 getting a mobile payment system of its own

LG G6 getting a mobile payment system of its own

LG announced today that its new flagship smartphone, the G6, will take the fight to Apple and Samsung in more ways than one. That's because the G6 will feature a mobile payments system all its own, putting it in a position to compete with Apple Pay and Samsung Pay. LG says this mobile payment service will go live in Korea this June, but so far that's really all the company has shared about this new G6 feature.

LG is getting sued by G4 and V10 owners

LG is getting sued by G4 and V10 owners

LG may be riding high right now over the early praise of its new G6 smartphone, but owners of its older devices are still unhappy with the company. Owners of the G4 and V10 phones have filed a class-action lawsuit against LG in California over bootloop issues, or hardware failures that send the device into a non-stop rebooting sequence. The users argue this left the phones unusable, and LG did little to fix them.

LG G6 prices and dates for US carriers now official

Yesterday we saw a leak revealing the pricing, date, and promos for the LG G6 as far as Verizon is concerned. With the cat out of the bag, carriers have now gone public with their own availability details and promos. Curiously, Verizon is still being coy about the promos attached to the smartphone but AT&T and T-Mobile pretty much confirm the deal. You practically get a free Google Home if you order an LG G6 early.

LG G6 Verizon pre-order date and price leaked, promos too

The LG G6 is arguably one of the most interesting smartphones of late, though we’re barely three months into 2017. It’s 18:9 FullVision screen, which is leading the pack of near bezel-free smartphones coming later this year, has many people re-thinking current conventions in smartphone displays. The G6 has exchanged eccentricity for sensibility and practicality, ending up with a solid smartphone that promises to deliver was almost all users want. The biggest question, however, is how much all of that will cost. Based on this leaked Verizon info sheet, surprisingly not that much.

LG’s odd TONE Studio wireless headset begins its global launch

LG’s odd TONE Studio wireless headset begins its global launch

Around-the-neck wireless headsets have always been strange to look at but surprisingly effective. It combines the freedom of movement provided by wireless earbuds with the controls and structure of conventional headphones. LG, whose TONE headsets embrace this design, believes it can still improve on this concept. At CES earlier this year, it unveiled two new TONEs. One of those, the LG TONE Studio, is finally going on sale this week to bring its surround sound capabilities to your neck.

LG G6 won’t be hitting the US until next month

LG G6 won’t be hitting the US until next month

Although LG has already officially started sales of the LG G6 in Korea last Friday, it seems that the Korean OEM isn’t too much in a rush to roll out its new premium smartphone in one of the world’s major smartphone markets, the US. According to sources, it won’t be until early April that the LG G6 is going to launch in the US, which puts it precariously close to Samsung’s own launch of the Galaxy S8 worldwide.

Why the LG G6’s display leads the way in 2017

Why the LG G6’s display leads the way in 2017

It's fair to say the LG G6 looked pretty odd in the first leaked photos. By the time the Android smartphone hit the stands at Mobile World Congress last month we were pretty much inured - both from leaks and LG's own near-constant drip-drip-drip of announcements - to its tall & skinny design. Still, when you first pick it up you notice, even if subconsciously, there's something strange going on.

LG Phoenix 3 coming to AT&T GoPhone this week

LG Phoenix 3 coming to AT&T GoPhone this week

Not everyone needs or even wants a fully-featured, not to mention super expensive smartphone. Not everyone even needs all the perks of a postpaid plan, some of which may go unused despite being paid for. Some will settle for a “back to basics”, no nonsense smartphone and a super affordable prepaid subscription and be happy with it. For that class of customers, AT&T has its GoPhone offering, which will soon welcome the LG Phoenix 3 to its roster of prepaid devices.

LG G4, V10 will still get Android 7.0 Nougat this year

LG G4, V10 will still get Android 7.0 Nougat this year

Planned, some say forced, obsolescence is nothing new in business but it has become a rather thorny subject in the mobile industry. Devices, especially Android ones, are usually given only two years’ worth of major software updates, leaving them to become stale and “encourage” consumers to jump on more updated hardware. With the launch of the LG G6 and the release of Android 7.0, LG’s 2015 flagships, the G4 and the V10, were initially left by the wayside. LG has apparently had a change of heart and will be bringing Nougat to these two after all.

LG G6 pre-orders reach 40,000 in 4 days

LG G6 pre-orders reach 40,000 in 4 days

It seems that LG has gotten the break it has been waiting for. While we will never completely know if it’s because Samsung isn’t in the race just yet, the numbers do speak for themselves. Ever since it opened the doors last Thursday, LG has reported that pre-orders for the LG G6 has topped 40,000. That’s an average of 10,000 pre-orders per day. If 100% of that turns into actual sales by the end of this week, then the G6 is definitely off to a good start to be the Android king of smartphones this quarter.

LG G6 vs. Sony Xperia XZ Premium vs. Huawei P10 Plus – MWC 2017 Mobile Showdown

As the dust of MWC 2017 settles, we take stock of all the announcements, teasers, and devices that rained down in Barcelona. We definitely have enough interesting smartphones, high-end or otherwise, that makes Samsung’s relative absence almost negligible. LG’s return to essentials with the G6, Sony’s hybrid of two generations of flagships with the Xperia XZ Premium, and Huawei’s unyielding commitment to Leica lenses with the P10 Plus.

Of course, the question always boils down to “which is the best smartphone of 2017”. And, of course, the answer is never straightforward. While we wait to spend more quality time with each of these three, we take a quick recap of what make each one your best smartphone of 2017.
