LG Pay launches in the US only on the G8 ThinQ

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. Some OEMs like Samsung have also tried to jump on the bandwagon and LG wasn't about to be left behind. That said, LG Pay has had very little coverage compared to Samsung Pay and hasn't even set foot in the US. A year since it was first announced, LG Pay is finally coming to the US but it will only be available on one phone for now.

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

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.

LG G8S ThinQ bring Z Camera, Hand ID, and Air Motion to more markets

It isn’t unusual for LG to milk everything it can out of a new flagship every year but it seems to have ramped down that practice of late. That doesn’t mean, however, that it has completely stopped. Just three months after it launched the LG G8 ThinQ comes its first “spin-off”’ the LG G8S ThinQ. While LG markets the G8S ThinQ as a more affordable version for the rest of the world, it bears most of the high-end flagship’s most important, and most eccentric, features.

LG W smartphone series shows it isn’t ready to call it quits just yet

LG W smartphone series shows it isn’t ready to call it quits just yet

It’s probably not a good sign when once small-time players from China are getting more attention and especially more sales than former industry giants. That, unfortunately, is the position that LG has found itself in, even after the dual launch of the LG G8 ThinQ and the LG V50 ThinQ. Some have considered the phones dead on arrival in face of high-profile launches from Samsung, Huawei, and even OnePlus. There might be even those that think LG is down for the count. In India, however, it launched a new “W” series of smartphone that begs to differ.

LG AI ThinQ TVs get Amazon Alexa support on 2019 models

TVs are no longer what they were just a few years ago. Never mind how some have become so thin that they almost disappear into walls, they've also become so intelligent they could become the hub of modern smart homes. Many of them, however, can't do it alone and require the help of some AI assistant. That's why LG is rolling out support for Amazon Alexa to its 2019 TVs under its AI ThinQ smart brand.

LG makes its own AI chip to give its phones a boost

It may be bleeding from quarter after quarter of losses but don't count LG out of the smartphone game just yet. It hasn't thrown in the towel and is, in fact, bullish on pushing its mobile phones forward despite all odds. Its latest strategy is to put its eggs in the AI basket by making its own, still unnamed dedicated artificial intelligence chip in the hopes of differentiating its phones from its competitors.

LG G8 ThinQ teardown reveals one giant repair problem

LG's phones are good, sometimes even great, but often get swept aside by more sensational phones from Samsung, Apple, Google, and even OnePlus. That doesn't mean they don't get a lot of things right, as JerryRigEverthing's Zack Nelson remarked in his durability test. Unfortunately, that doesn't mean it doesn't get something wrong, too, as Nelson also discovered in a follow-up teardown. Long story short, the LG G8 ThinQ is not the phone you'd want if longevity is your long-term goal.

Finally, Android lets me turn off all phone sensors

So you'd like to make certain your phone isn't connecting to anything, hearing, seeing, or sensing anything at all, right? Now you can make that happen.
