T-Mobile LG V30/V30+ Android Oreo update has a small catch

With the launch of the LG G7 ThinQ, some might despair that LG will start to have selective amnesia over its previous phones. Luckily, LG is trying to turn over a new leaf and even established a new center dedicated solely to speeding up software updates. Last year's LG V30 and V30+ just recently got its Android 8.0 Oreo update from carriers like Verizon and AT&T, and now T-Mobile is doing the same with one catch: you have to manually install the update.

LG V30S ThinQ goes all-in on Android AI in V30 refresh

LG V30S ThinQ goes all-in on Android AI in V30 refresh

LG dropped some heavy hints that MWC 2018 wouldn't be a hardware-fest, and the LG V30S ThinQ is the proof of that. Building on, rather than replacing, the LG V30 the company announced last year, the new smartphone puts artificial intelligence (AI) to the fore, particularly when it comes to photography and voice control.

LG V30s with AI camera said to echo Apple strategy

LG is reportedly cooking up a revamped version of its V30, the LG V30s, that promises to inject some artificial intelligence smarts into the Android phone's camera. An iterative tweak on the existing - and generally well-received V30 - the new smartphone is expected to make its debut at Mobile World Congress 2018, in just a few weeks time.

LG V30 DxOMark score: good but not good enough

LG V30 DxOMark score: good but not good enough

When LG announced the V30, it boasted of two things about its camera: its crystal clear glass lens and its big f/1.6 aperture. Taken independently, those specs might sound amazing. But digital photography is more than just lenses or even megapixel counts. It’s about everything working together for the best effect. And as DxOMark found in its review of the LG V30, it might not have the best. That said, it’s still one of the better ones out there in the market.

LG G6 and Q6 are in for new V30 treats

LG G6 and Q6 are in for new V30 treats

It's been a little while since we last heard from the LG G6, but the fact that it's almost a year old isn't stopping its maker from rolling out new models. Today LG announced that the G6 will soon be getting a few new color options, along with its budget-minded counterpart, the LG Q6. These colors will be based on some of the ones that are already available for the V30, LG's latest flagship device.

LG mobile losses in 2017 underscore its flagship schedule shake-up

LG mobile losses in 2017 underscore its flagship schedule shake-up

The reason behind LG's decision to step off the yearly flagship smartphone upgrade cycle and take a more measured approach has become clear, with the company announcing its Q4 2017 financial results today. Mobile performance was a dark blot on what was otherwise a great three months before the end of last year, it turns out, as the South Korean company continues to struggle to raise its profile above Apple and Samsung.

LG V30+ alpha with AI chops to debut MWC instead of LG G7

LG V30+ alpha with AI chops to debut MWC instead of LG G7

2018 will be a confusing year for LG, both for the company itself but most especially for its customers. To address its floundering mobile phone business, the company has decided to adopt a devil may care attitude and throw all caution to the wind. It will release phones only when they think they need to and not when everyone else does. Heck, it won’t even release an LG G7, if that’s still its name, in early 2018. What it might show at MWC next month will simply be an enhanced LG V30+ instead.

iPhone X gets some tempting discounts in T-Mobile BOGO deals [Update]

T-Mobile has decided to start the year off with a buy one, get one promotion on a lot of high-end smartphones.

Things get even more tempting when you realize that one of these offers applies to the iPhone X as well.

LG V30 in Raspberry Rose to debut at CES 2018

LG might not have a new high-end smartphone to show off at CES next week but it does have a new version of an old flagship to flaunt. Following Samsung and some other OEMs, like OnePlus, LG is putting out its own spin on a red flagship. It’s not exactly red and it’s not exactly pink either but something in between. LG calls it the “Raspberry Rose” and it will be the LG V30’s new fashionable color.

LG Signature Edition phone is the super V30+ you can’t have

LG Signature Edition phone is the super V30+ you can’t have

LG has a rather odd product strategy with its V30 flagship. Just a month after it launched, it was followed immediately by a V30+, a slightly beefed up version that was available from limited carriers only. Although it now at least waited two months, LG has announced yet another “upgraded” model. The good news is that you might not be able to get your hands on this very limited LG Signature Edition phone just announced in Korea.

LG V30 finally launches in Europe via carriers

LG V30 finally launches in Europe via carriers

Manufacturers sometimes make the weirdest decisions in the name of business, citing market analysis and such. Samsung, for example, didn’t make the Galaxy Note 5 available in Europe because it believed the productivity-focused phablet would have no audience there. LG has made it V series similarly unavailable in the market for various other excuses. Fortunately, that was promised to change with the LG V30 and that promise has finally happened, months after the smartphone launched elsewhere.
