LG V40 ThinQ is still coming in three months

LG V40 ThinQ is still coming in three months

In the past 11 months, there have actually been three V series phones launched by LG: the V30, the V30S ThinQ, and, most recently, the V35 ThinQ. Four if you count the exclusive V30+. Not bad for a smartphone maker reported to be girding its loins due to quarter after quarter of losses. LG, however, is far from done. Unsurprisingly, there is still the 2018 V series flagship coming, unsurprisingly called the LG V40, and it will also unsurprisingly bear the ThinQ AI brand.

LG G7 ThinQ durability test: unremarkable in the best way

LG G7 ThinQ durability test: unremarkable in the best way

The LG G7 ThinQ is easily one of the better smartphones this year. Beautiful, well-built, and sensible, it is, unfortunately, also one of the least remarkable ones this year. But while that might be a negative, being “normal” in some cases can also be a good thing. Like in a JerryRigEverything durability test where the LG G7 ThinQ reveals no fancy gimmicks or chinks in its armor. It’s just one solid and durable smartphone.

LG G7 ThinQ Review: sounds better than it looks

LG G7 ThinQ Review: sounds better than it looks

Although it is not exactly in dire straits like, say, HTC, LG has had a rough few quarters. For 2018, it supposedly went back to the drawing board and would be focusing on a few but key premium models. The latter resulted in at least four V series variants in the past 7 or so months while the former gave birth to the LG G7 ThinQ. Billed as the first in the G series to bear its ThinQ brand, LG’s 2018 flagship puts AI front and center. That, however, is hardly its only selling factor and may not even be its biggest strength. We take a deep dive into the LG G7 ThinQ to see if it has enough power to lift LG out of its slump.

LG foldable phone patent has some interesting twists

LG foldable phone patent has some interesting twists

Bezel-less screens, notches, and elevating cameras have practically stolen the market spotlight from the foldable phone. If things happen according to leaks, however, the tables could be turned before the year ends. Almost anyone and everyone has a foldable phone concept from Samsung to Apple to Huawei. Unsurprisingly, LG isn’t far behind. But while the patent for this LG foldable phone bears some resemblance to, say, Samsung’s, it definitely has a few differences that make it both interesting and odd.

Unlocked LG G7 ThinQ is coming soon to all US carriers

Unlocked LG G7 ThinQ is coming soon to all US carriers

If you look at all the premium phones LG has put out the past 6 or so months, you might think it has been pretty busy. Look closer, however, and you’ll discover mere iterations of an existing model. That, of course, isn’t stopping LG, which is probably good for its fans. Even better for its fans, its latest semi-flagship might not remain exclusive to AT&T and Google Project Fi for long. That is if this official product listing is any indication.

Top smartphones of Q2 2018: where things stand

The year is half over and we’ve mostly seen all that year has to offer as far as smartphones go. Except, of course, for Apple new iPhones and Samsung’s last hurrah for the year. We already took a look at the premium phones that landed in the market in the first few months of the year and was admittedly at a loss for which one came out at the top. This quarter has its own roster with seemingly interesting personalities. Will a winner finally stand out? Let’s take a look.

CCC Digital Key spec turns smartphones into car keys

CCC Digital Key spec turns smartphones into car keys

We put almost everything inside our phones, from our personal data to our money. So why not our car keys as well? After all, smart homes can already be locked or unlocked using our mobile devices anyway. That’s the future, frightening or otherwise, that car manufacturers are already building. Now the Car Connectivity Consortium (CCC) is working together to create an open standard around that, called the Digital Key specification, which is now marking its 1.0 release on the road towards seamless mobile device-to-vehicle connectivity.

LG Q7 Android One for T-Mobile sighted

LG Q7 Android One for T-Mobile sighted

While not exactly numerous, there is no severe dearth of Android One devices, at least outside the US. Here, it’s pretty much just down to last year’s Moto X4 variant and the few Nokia phones that have made it to these shores. There might be more coming, like the Motorola One Power, but Motorola might no longer have the show to itself. Some very curious Android fans may have discovered clues to what could be not only LG’s first Android One phone but also T-Mobile’s. It might, however, be an odd variant of an already existing phone, the newly-announced LG Q7.

LG Q Stylus shows why Samsung still leads this niche market

LG Q Stylus shows why Samsung still leads this niche market

Apple has already vindicated the stylus. At least on tablets. On smartphones, Samsung not only holds strong, it also mostly stands alone. Only one other manufacturer has even bothered to take up the challenge. LG’s Stylus/Stylo line, which now includes the newly announced LG Q Stylus, tries to offer a more affordable alternative to a Samsung Galaxy Note. But, depending on what you need that stylus for, you might find it makes too many compromises to meet that price point.
