LG Pay launches in the US only on the G8 ThinQ

The hype around mobile payments has died down but the industry has more or less settled around a few key players like Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Galaxy Note 10 primary feature further confirmed: Aimed at new iPhone 11 war

ASUS ROG Phone 2 leaked: The thumb I missed

Today we're taking a look at the ASUS ROG Phone 2, a device that's not yet been officially revealed in detail by its maker.

LG G6 and LG V30 Android 9 Pie builds leak to provide hope

Samsung has long been regarded as one of the worst phone makers when it comes rolling out updates to its phones. It's still no Essential but has gotten better, which means others are now forced to take its place of shame. That spot may now be occupied by LG, ironically a close Google partner, whose 2017 flagships have yet to receive their slice of Pie. Fortunately, based on two leaks, Android 9 may just be around the corner for the LG G6 and LG V30.

OPPO Reno redeems the brand’s durability test reputation

Smartphones these days have become nearly all-glass affairs which may be good for durability. Some, however, have decided to introduce certain features that may compromise structural integrity a bit.

Galaxy Note 10 production affected by South Korea-Japan politics

You'd often think that politics and the tech industry exist in completely separate realms but the real world is hardly that neat.

WhatsApp and Telegram hack: Here’s what’s possible

Most users of apps like WhatsApp and Telegram expect their communications to be encrypted and therefore protected, but that doesn't mean all communications shared through those apps are safe from intrusion.
