LG bootloop lawsuit now includes G5, V20, Nexus 5X

No smartphone is perfect, but some fail so spectacularly that they get not only some media coverage but even a class action lawsuit. And, no, for the first time, we're not talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. In the federal district Southern California, LG was slapped with a class action lawsuit by disgruntled owners of LG G4 and LG V10 smartphone who were fed up with the company's shoddy craftsmanship and even shoddier customer support. Now that list of devices has grown to include the Nexus 5X, the LG G5, and the LG V20.

Google Pixel 2 might sport curved OLED screen from LG

Now that the word is out that there will be a second Pixel phone this year, the rumor mill has started churning. First up is what kind of display the smartphone will have. Based on speculation by Korean media, it might be a curved one ala the Samsung Galaxy S8. The basis of that idea is that Google has apparently offered to invest a considerable amount of cash into LG Display's flexible OLED screen, fueling speculation of the curved design of the Pixel 2.

LG G6 reliability put to the Rube Goldberg machine test

LG G6 reliability put to the Rube Goldberg machine test

In addition to its FullVision display, LG made a bold claim when it boasted that the LG G6 is one of if not the most reliable smartphones in the market today. Sure, it's not going to be as rugged as a CAT, Panasonic, or even Kyocera, but it's tough while also pretty at the same time. Naturally, that has inspired not a few rough handling tests caught on camera to prove or disprove LG's claims. And, naturally, LG couldn't resist making its own "tests" via a convoluted Rude Goldberg machine.

LG G Watch R, 1st Watch Urbane joins Android Wear 2.0 club

Almost mirroring the fragmentation on Android for smartphones, Android Wear 2.0's rollout is happening bit by bit and was even held back for a while by an undisclosed bug. But more than that, there are also smartwatches that may not even get the update at all. So it's probably with great joy that owners of the LG G Watch R, LG's first round Android Wear watch, and the first gen Watch Urbane were greeted by the update that brought their 2015 smartwatches to the present.

LG G6 begins is global availability this week

Samsung may have gotten the spotlight last week, but it will be LG who will get the first laugh. Who gets the last one, however, remains to be seen. But for now, LG fans who have been drooling over the LG G6 need not wait much longer. LG has announced the start of the rollout of the LG G6 across the world and in major markets, with the US getting theirs this Friday.

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

It's difficult to say exactly why it is Samsung and Apple dominate the smartphone market - but this video takes a crack at it. What we're looking at is a spinning iPhone 8 concept - a device that's most likely going to come out next year, but commands search terms in Google this year because "iPhone 7s" is too many characters to be bothered typing. What we see here is style - design finesse - a sense of assuredness in the phone's overall excellence. That's what Apple and Samsung have, or appear to have, that most other phone companies lack.

LG G6’s reliability put to a scratch and bend test

LG G6’s reliability put to a scratch and bend test

Next to the larger screen, the next big focus of the LG G6's marketing is its reliability. Normally, that translates to dust and waterproofing but JerryRigEverything is definitely interested in more than that. Being reliable also means surviving some scratches and the pressure of your posterior. Fortunately, it seems that the LG G6 does perform with flying colors, though there's still some things left to be desired overall.

LG G6 Review: The display is the key

LG G6 Review: The display is the key

After the ill-fated modular excesses of 2016, LG has found its head in 2017, and the LG G6 is all the better for it. Owners of the G5 may be left frustrated that the vision of interchangeable accessories and growing functionality they were promised has failed to pan out, but the rest of us are getting a far more rational - and, thus, usable - device instead. That all comes down to the G6's screen.

LG TONE Infinim HBS-920 brings back a classic, normal design

If you thought that LG was done announcing new TONE around-the-neck Bluetooth headsets, you'd be glad, or not, to be proven wrong. Not even the announcement of the Galaxy S8 from its bitter rival is enough to hit the brakes on LG's roll. Introducing the LG TONE Infinim HBS-920, bass-centric Bluetooth neckband headset. And fortunately for fans of the form factor, this newest Infinim model is as normal and as conventional as they come.

LG TONE FREE mixes neckband with removable earbuds

LG TONE FREE mixes neckband with removable earbuds

Just a few weeks ago, LG formally started the retail availability of one of its weirder TONE headsets, the LG TONE Studio. This time, it is launching its other odd headset. At first glance, the LG TONE FREE looks like any old around-the-neck Bluetooth headset, like many of LG's other TONEs. That perception, however, changes when you pull out the earbuds. Because unlike other neckband headphones, these earbuds completely detached from the neckband, giving you truly wireless freedom.
