Nokia 6 gets an Amazon Prime Exclusive discount, LG G6+ coming

Even if you missed the storm of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, there are companies more than happy to satisfy your shopping cravings all the way to next year. Amazon, for example, is putting some of its already discounted Prime Exclusive phones on even more discounts. The mid-range Nokia 6 is leading the fray, with the somewhat high-end LG G6+ following next week. But if you know your Prime Exclusives, then you probably already know that there is always a catch.

LG G6 joins Amazon’s ad-supported cheap Android range

Amazon's Prime Exclusive Phones line-up is getting some high-end additions from LG, giving the option of a flagship smartphone for a lot less cash, albeit with a compromise. Launched in 2016, the program offers a range of Android smartphones currently priced from just $59.99, significantly undercutting the usual list price. Only Prime subscribers are eligible to grab the deals.

LG G6 sales aren’t doing it for the company

LG G6 sales aren’t doing it for the company

The LG G5 was an utter flop last year. But if LG was hoping the G6 would be its salvation, better luck next time. The Korean giant has just released its second quarter financials and, while it’s doing OK over all, its mobile division isn’t turning out to be so healthy. LG says that its mobile business basically saw no change compared to second quarter of 2016. And that’s all due to the “weaker than expected” sales of premium smartphones, a.k.a. the LG G6.

LG Q6 brings bezel-less FullVision design to new mid-range

LG Q6 brings bezel-less FullVision design to new mid-range

Every year, LG boasts about how it’s bringing premium features to budget-friendly phones. That started with the K and then the X series in 2016 and now LG is doing it again with a new Q series. But rather than starting with “1”, the pioneering models of this new line are the Q6 triplets, the LG Q6, the LG Q6+, and the LG Q6α (alpha). And if that number reminds you of the LG G6, that’s by no means an accident. That’s because, with a nearly bezel-free FullVision display, these three are practically your LG G6 “minis”.

LG G6 performs worse than 2016 predecessors in DxOMark review

LG G6 performs worse than 2016 predecessors in DxOMark review

When LG went back to the drawing board with the LG G6, it eschewed almost all fancy features save for the Full Vision display. It focused on improving the staples of smartphones like reliability, performance, and camera. On that last part, however, it might have faltered just a bit. In taking the LG G6 for a spin, DxOMark eventually gave this LG early 2017 flagship a score of 84, a point or two lower than the LG G5 or even the V20 from last year.

LG Q6 “G6 mini” coming this week, spotted in Geekbench

LG Q6 “G6 mini” coming this week, spotted in Geekbench

LG has just announced the G6+ and G6 32 GB in South Korea, but it has no signs of stopping with the “spinoffs”. Another model that’s coming is the “G6 mini” but it might have a different name. Now believed to be called the LG Q6, this mini flagship will mostly have mid-range specs but will surprisingly retain the flagship’s Full Vision nearly bezel-less design. Albeit with an understandably lower resolution, of course.

OnePlus 5 vs everyone else: where the upstart stands

OnePlus 5 vs everyone else: where the upstart stands

The OnePlus 5 has finally broken cover and, with that, we are almost through this year's expected roster of flagship smartphones. While still waiting for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8, the LG V30, the Moto Z2, and, of course, the iPhone 8, we can take stock of what we have so far and see how they measure against the smartphone that's promised to "Never Settle". Does OnePlus still have that special sauce that helped its meteoric rise to international fame, or in some cases, infamy? Or has it already fizzled out and has become yet another "also ran" phone? Let's see how it compares with the other runners in this race.

LG G6 Plus Specs VS original: What’s changed?

LG G6 Plus Specs VS original: What’s changed?

This week the folks at LG have introduced a new set of features for the LG G6 as well as a new phone: the LG G6 Plus. The difference is in the device's ability to carry massive amounts of media as well as the device's newly boosted sound quality. This is the first time LG has released a device in this manner - generally they tend to release smartphones partway through the year with completely different names rather than crowning one that they released earlier.

LG G6+ and G6 32 GB models are finally official

LG G6+ and G6 32 GB models are finally official

Who says you can have too much G6? LG definitely doesn't. Not content with just one model, the Korean manufacturer has just two new ones deriving their name and their features from the G6. And one of them is appropriately not called a "Pro". The LG G6+, or Plus, and the LG G6 32 GB, not Pro, have broken cover and, as their leaks indicated before, their only real significant difference is in their storage size.

Here’s how to avail of the LG G6’s Second Year Promise

Here’s how to avail of the LG G6’s Second Year Promise

Although offering warranties is a long standing practice in the consumer market, Samsung's misadventures with the Galaxy Note 7 last year has put such programs under the microscope. Although LG insists it isn't simply reacting to that, it does admit that consumers have put reliability as a priority for their next phone purchase, something that the LG G6 promises to provide. To further increase their peace of mind, LG is now offering what it is marketing as its Second Year Promise, practically extending the original 12-month manufacturer warranty to 24 months.

Google Pixel XL 2 gets even bigger (6P size returns!)

Google Pixel XL 2 gets even bigger (6P size returns!)

The next big Google phone, likely called Google Pixel XL 2, seems to be getting as big as the company's original huge phone: the Nexus 6P. This week speculation came of the cancellation of the mid-sized Pixel 2 thanks to a series of insider tips (linked below). Because Google's been working on three new devices for the next wave, instead of two, the cutting out of the mid-sized device won't have that giant an effect on the everyday average consumer. We'll weep for the lack of a 5.5-inch display, but the device we'll get will probably be better off for it.

LG G6 Pro, G6 Plus to herald new “premium derivative” line

LG G6 Pro, G6 Plus to herald new “premium derivative” line

LG's strategy for its premium smartphones have so far been simple. The "G" launches in the first half of the year followed by the "V". While LG does sometimes launch phones reusing a popular "G" model, those are all mid-range or lower devices. You can kiss that simple system goodbye soon. Korean media reports that LG is planning to start a new trend of having "premium derivative" models, starting with an LG G6 Plus and LG G6 Pro, while, at the same time, consolidating its entry-level phones under a single X+number scheme.
