LG G8X ThinQ Review – Dual Screen Android is unexpected fun

LG G8X ThinQ Review – Dual Screen Android is unexpected fun

Not all foldable phones have a crease down the center of the display: some of them, like the LG G8X ThinQ and its LG Dual Screen accessory, have a hinge instead. The South Korean phone-maker's second attempt at a twin-display Android smartphone is also its first try at the US market, with aggressive pricing and a cautious feature-set to test the waters.

LG G Pad 5 10.1 revealed with mixed bag of specs

LG G Pad 5 10.1 revealed with mixed bag of specs

The LG G Pad 5 10.1 tablet was revealed today with a design that might confirm your suspicion about the tablet-makers plans for future devices. Yes, LG does seem to be making a new tablet, and yes, it looks nothing like what we'd expect from a serious competitor for the very few high-end tablet makers on the market today. The LG G Pad 5 10.1 runs Android and has the potential to connect to 4G LTE mobile data - but the rest is a bit confusingly low-end.

LG V20 Android 9 update available now in Korea

LG V20 Android 9 update available now in Korea

LG was once regarded as a dreamer, innovator, and good Android citizen so it's almost tragic to see its slow fall from grace. It needs, however, to be called out for its unimpressive rollout of Android updates, if only to urge it to do better. Some of those may have reached LG's ears and have, indeed, caused a favorable change. The company is now reportedly rolling out an Android 9 update for the LG V20 after it was believed to have abandoned the phone completely.

LG OLED TV G-SYNC update wants to level up living room gaming

LG OLED TV G-SYNC update wants to level up living room gaming

Of late, TV makers have been competing with each other on adding "smart" or AI-powered features to ride on the wave of trends in the general tech industry. Mostly that applies to things like upscaling to 4K or even 8K, HDR and color management, and frame interpolation. The overall goal is always the same, to offer the smoothest video output possible. That may work well for regular movies and films but game graphics can be a bit trickier to address. That's why LG will be pushing NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology to its most recent TV sets to make them suitable not just for binging but also for gaming on large screens.

LG G8X ThinQ released to AT&T with Dual Screen case

LG G8X ThinQ released to AT&T with Dual Screen case

Today we're taking a peek at the newest smartphone to launch in the USA with AT&T. This is the LG G8X ThinQ, and it's coming with a dual-screen attachment accessory. For a short bit, between here and "a limited time" later, people who purchase the LG G8X ThinQ from AT&T will get this extra display for free - making this a strange value proposition indeed.

LG Stylo 5+ lands on AT&T with a mind-boggling proposition

LG Stylo 5+ lands on AT&T with a mind-boggling proposition

There has been some talk recently about Samsung launching more affordable Galaxy Note and Galaxy S phones. Unless it's on the same level of affordability as the Galaxy Note 3 Neo, however, it won't actually be that affordable for many consumers anyway. When it comes to cheaper stylus-bearing phablets, LG is probably the only game in town. In fact, it has just silently launched a new LG Stylo 5+ exclusive to AT&T just months after a nearly identical Stylo 5 (no Plus) launched on other US carriers.

LG Android 10 preview program starts with LG G8 ThinQ this month

LG Android 10 preview program starts with LG G8 ThinQ this month

LG has probably overtaken Samsung as the OEM with the worse, though not worst, Android update scorecard in recent years. Fortunately, LG is neither blind nor deaf to the plight of its users. For one, it is announcing that the public testing period for its version Android 10 is nearly here. For another, it is giving hope that its other mid-range smartphones will soon be getting some updates before the year is over.

LG V30 finally starts getting Android 9 Pie in the US

LG V30 finally starts getting Android 9 Pie in the US

Samsung has received a lot of flack for its slow updates, partially due to its heavily modified Android experience. In truth, it was hardly the only one and, since the Stagefright vulnerability, it has turned over a new leaf. One of the worst offenders of late is, ironically, one of Google's closest partners. Now more than two years after it launched and just as its software support period lapsed, the company is finally pushing Android 9 Pie to LG V30 owners in the US.

LG G Pad 5 might be an embarrassing return to the tablet market

LG G Pad 5 might be an embarrassing return to the tablet market

Although the Android tablet market has shrunken considerably, there are still quite a few OEMs making slates. Samsung is perhaps the most prolific among them, followed by Huawei and, to some extent, Amazon with its Fire tablets. LG was once part of that group but has become silent of late. According to leaks, it seems like the G Pad will be making a comeback but, based on that unofficial information, it might be arguable whether LG should have even made such a tablet at all.

LG 2019 OLED TVs will soon get NVIDIA G-SYNC support for gaming

LG 2019 OLED TVs will soon get NVIDIA G-SYNC support for gaming

The lines between computer monitors and TVs are slowly blurring. Just like their living room counterparts, desktop screens have started sporting curved designs to offer the same cinematic experience for viewing videos and playing games on PCs. Now LG and NVIDIA are turning the tables and are promising TVs that turn those large panels into gaming monitors in the living room. While any modern HDMI-equipped TV can be a gaming monitor, the addition of NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology may give it an even better edge.

LG G8X ThinQ brings improved Dual Screen and smarter multitasking

LG hasn't given up on dual-screen phones, but nor is it quite ready to wade into the problematic waters that have mired Samsung and Huawei's foldable Android devices. Instead, at IFA 2019, it has an updated version of its LG Dual Screen accessory, working with the new LG G8X ThinQ.

LG UltraGear monitors promise fast response and fast refresh for games

Gamescom might be over but companies are still finding ways to extend the energy and buzz thanks to IFA 2019. Razer has just loudly proclaimed the world's first gaming ultrabook and now LG is announcing the debut of new ultra-fast IPS gaming displays in Berlin. And while these three new UltraGear monitors may offer different features, they're all bound by two defining features: a 1 ms response times and refresh rates no lower than 120 Hz.
