LG webOS TV brings Amazon Alexa to third party TVs

It's not easy to determine which smart TV platform is really leading the market. Smart TV sales don't exactly correlate to the popularity or quality of the software that runs on them.

LG OLED TV Dolby Vision 4K 120Hz update takes aim at gamers

OLED displays have been praised for their power-efficiency and deeper blacks, but LCD technology used to have one important advantage, at least for a short while. Until recently, only LCD screens could boast of refresh rates that went higher than 60Hz, let alone 120Hz or more. OLEDs, however, are catching up and it's not unusual nowadays to hear of phones and TVs with OLED screens with high refresh rates. Proof of that is LG's latest update to its top-of-the-line OLED TVs that are getting three of the biggest buzzwords in the industry: Dolby Vision, 4K, and 120Hz.

LG Velvet 2 Pro leaks show what would have been LG’s last hurrah

LG's exit from the smartphone market evoked mixed reactions. On the one hand, it wasn't exactly surprising given the company's ailing mobile business, but, on the other hand, it was still a sad fate to befall one of the former giants of that industry.

As one of Samsung's eternal rivals, it wasn't really a surprise that LG would also roll out its own mobile payment system with almost similar capabilities as Samsung Pay. Of course, LG wanted LG Pay to be able to do more but the system's rather troubled beginnings seemed to prefigure its untimely demise. Although less than four years in the US, the company announced that it will be shutting down LG Pay in stages, which isn't exactly surprising since it is also shutting down its mobile business anyway.
