LG gram 17, gram 2-in-1 take lightweight brand to new places

LG gram 17, gram 2-in-1 take lightweight brand to new places

Just as an earlier leak indicated, LG is expanding its once famous “LG gram” line of laptops and taking it places no gram has gone before. Meaning, just like what that same leak suggested, they are taking on not just new forms but new weights as well. Whether that actually breaks the deal, only consumers will be able to decide. Suffice it to say, the LG gram 17 and 14-inch LG gram 2-in-1 are not your average grams.

LG HomeBrew capsule-based system to make beer lovers’ dreams come true

LG HomeBrew capsule-based system to make beer lovers’ dreams come true

Capsule-based coffee systems like the Nespresso have made special brews and flavors more easily available without getting large, expensive machines. There are some variants of that system for sodas but sadly not for beer. That will all change next year because LG, of all companies is coming out with one at CES 2019. While it will also tie in with its smart home ecosystem, there’s really no getting around it. This one is made for the beer lovers who’d rather stay at home.

LG G7 ThinQ suffers from the LG Bootloop curse

LG G7 ThinQ suffers from the LG Bootloop curse

There seem to be two things LG’s smartphones can’t fully be rid of: disappointing sales and bootloop-causing bugs. No matter how hard it tries and no matter how good they turn out to be, LG’s flagship phones just seem to underwhelm in terms of sales and, eventually, start showing its warts. Even the G7 ThinQ, one of its latest and smartest, is now reported to be susceptible to bootloops that the company’s phones have become infamous for.

LG Gram to expand forms, get heavier

LG Gram to expand forms, get heavier

Some words have started to become meaningless in the tech industry. “Unlimited” has become “unlimited but” and “yoga” is no longer associated with extreme flexibility. Soon, LG might also be joining that trend and redefine “gram” to be heavier than what it means. Because while the latest tip brings the good news of new form factors and sizes, it also brings the unfortunate cost of such an expansion.

Lineage Android Pie update: What is it, and should I use it?

Today we're having a peek at the latest update to Lineage - but before that, we're going to go over what it is and why it exists.

My favorite phone of 2018

My favorite phone of 2018

This year I reviewed a lot of phones and test-drove more than I reviewed. Some phones, like the phone I'm about to write about, I got the opportunity to use at a time that was well after the usual reasonable window of opportunity for reviewing a smartphone. I got the LG V35 ThinQ at a time at which the LG V40 ThinQ was about to be released and the LG G7 ThinQ was already on the market. So why, you might think to yourself, why on earth would I pick the LG V35, of all phones, as my favorite smartphone of the year?

LG patent envisions 16-camera smartphone

LG patent envisions 16-camera smartphone

Move over Huawei, Samsung, and Light! LG is out to reclaim its fame as the first company that put out a dual camera smartphone. The Korean manufacturer has been quite slow to capitalize on some of its innovations and it is largely seen to be quite late on the multiple camera bandwagon. A new patent, however, reveals that the company has actively been thinking of ways to change that perception, including putting no less than 16 camera lenses on a single smartphone.

LG XBOOM WK9 smart display may finally be ready to launch

LG XBOOM WK9 smart display may finally be ready to launch

Throughout the year, we've seen a handful of manufacturers announcing smart displays that use Google Assistant. LG may finally be ready to join that select group of hardware makers, as it seems to be gearing up to launch the XBOOM AI ThinQ model WK9 smart display. As you might be able to tell from the name and the fact that this smart display is flanked by two rather large speakers, sound quality is one of the primary focuses in the WK9.

The hidden selfie camera trend: Who’s onboard?

The hidden selfie camera trend: Who’s onboard?

This week we've gotten word that LG is also onboard for one of the most exciting trends in smartphones for the year 2019. At least, it would appear so. The trend was revealed by Samsung earlier this year - in a series of images during internal company events and planning sessions for the future of their smartphone business. What we're talking about here is the hidden camera trend, making it possible to cover the entirety of the front side of a smartphone with a display without leaving room for a notch-full of sensors and camera lenses.

LG G7 Fit isn’t dead yet, arriving this month

LG G7 Fit isn’t dead yet, arriving this month

LG has been eerily silent on “spin-offs” of its premium G7 brand. In fact, there were only two, both of which may have been forgotten already since their first announcement pre-IFA two months ago. Perhaps trying to make up for lost time, LG is now making sure everyone knows that its LG G7 Fit is still a thing and will be coming to certain markets starting this month. And there might be some delicious irony in how the G7 Fit might have trouble fitting in anywhere at this point.
