Eyes-on with the LG 5K display perfect for the new MacBook Pro

Apple may have delivered on a new MacBook Pro but desktop power-users didn't get the Apple Thunderbolt 3 Display they were hoping for at yesterday's event. Instead, we had the fruits of an unexpected collaboration with LG, in the shape of a co-created monitor that should have sufficient pixels to keep even demanding MacBook Pro owners happy. It's called the LG UltraFine 5K Display, and it looks pretty darn impressive in person.

LG UltraFine 4K, 5K monitors arrive in time for new MacBooks

Apple may have skipped the rumored new Thunderbolt Display, at least for now, but others more than happy to pick up where Apple left off. LG has just announced two new and large UltraFine displays that take advantage of the new MacBook and MacBook Pro’s capabilities, not to mention the hype surrounding them. The newcomers include what is touted to be the first 5K Thunderbolt 3 monitor, designed specifically with the New MacBook Pro in mind, as well as a 4K USB-C display for the New MacBook.

LG G6 said to use MST payment tech, White Card shelved

LG G6 said to use MST payment tech, White Card shelved

Every now and then you will hear about a new mobile payment system joining the already half a dozen or so mobile payment systems currently active. So it’s good when you finally hear someone deciding instead to adopt an existing technology instead of rolling out with their own. Well, in this case, good for Samsung, not so much for LG. Reports indicate that LG has practically decided to drop its own “White Card” technology and, instead, make use of Magnetic Secure Transmission or MST, the same technology used by Samsung Pay.

LG G5 did no wonders for Q3 earnings, LG V20 to the rescue

LG G5 did no wonders for Q3 earnings, LG V20 to the rescue

The LG G5 rode on the hype train driven by the dream of a modular smartphone. But, just as with Google’s Project Ara, the company realized only too late that the train would lose steam too quickly. Unlike Google, however, LG already put much of its eggs in that basket, thinking that having the first commercially available modular smartphone would suffice. But alas, LG’s financial earnings for Q3 2016 proved otherwise, with disappointing sales of the LG G5 causing a drop in its mobile business revenues.

LG G6 said to be dropping the G5’s modular design [UPDATE: Statement]

LG G6 said to be dropping the G5’s modular design [UPDATE: Statement]

Earlier this year, LG released its G5 smartphone, the best execution we've seen thus far of the modular phone concept. Unfortunately for the manufacturer, the device just didn't sell well, failing to lure buyers with its range of add-on modules like physical camera controls, improved speakers, and a 360-degree camera. A new report out of Korea says that, because of this flop, the G6 will return to a standard, integrated smartphone design, in turn dropping support for modules.

LG V20 first impressions: Verizon’s Phone

We've got the Verizon version of the LG V20 this week and we're starting off our review with a brief peek. To be clear: our embargo time sits at less than 24 hours - that's a bit short for a full-on all-in-one review. As such, we're turning this into a series, starting with this first brief look.

LG V20 is finally here: here’s why you’ll want one

LG V20 is finally here: here’s why you’ll want one

The LG G5 may have been more spectacular because of its eccentric modularity, but it didn’t exactly become the hot seller that some, especially LG, may have hoped it to be. All is not lost, however, because LG already had an ace up its sleeve, even before the G5’s popularity even became a question. The LG V20 has finally become available and with it comes a no-nonsense, heavy-duty Android smartphone with a bent towards capturing and crafting content. But why would you go for an admittedly pricey phablet, in a sea of premium smartphones and brands? Here are five reasons why.

Samsung considers compensation program, LG batteries for future

Samsung considers compensation program, LG batteries for future

The Galaxy Note 7 has truly shaken Samsung to its core. And those who think that the ripples are limited only to its mobile business, they better think again. There was even one report of a misbehaving Samsung smart washing machine. The company, however, has no choice but to try and move forward, and its next steps will determine whether consumers will retain confidence in the brand. Some of those steps, according to sources, include offering disgruntled Galaxy Note 7 owners some compensation as well as using LG Chem’s batteries for the Galaxy S8.

Verizon Stylo 2 V is the LG Stylo 2, with a V

Verizon Stylo 2 V is the LG Stylo 2, with a V

f you thought that carriers putting obtrusive, even obnoxious, branding on smartphones was a thing of the past, Verizon has just proven you wrong. The carrier has just announced the addition of the LG Stylo 2 V to its roster, and if the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the very same LG Stylo 2 that was announced just last April. Except with a “V”, presumably for “Verizon”. That, however, isn’t the only thing Verizon has added, as it has also slapped on a slightly higher price tag as well.

LG V34 is the smaller, waterproof V20 you can’t have

LG V34 is the smaller, waterproof V20 you can’t have

The LG V20 is admittedly one of the nicer Android smartphones this half of the year, especially with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 out of the running. But nice as it is, it have a few things that make it less than perfect for some. For one, some might find the 5.7-inch screen a tad too big. For another, it doesn’t speak of any dust or waterproofing at all, much like the new Google Pixel. It seems, however, that LG has addressed those complaints in a new LG V34. The bad news: it’s only available in Japan.
