LG K10, K8 2018 phones put the focus on photos

LG K10, K8 2018 phones put the focus on photos

LG may have said it’s tempering its smartphone frenzy, unlike Samsung, but that seems to only apply to its higher end phones. In addition to the LG V30 (2018), it will also be introducing two, actually four, new mid-range models as well. Carrying on its K series, the new K10 (2018) and K8 (2018) follow that pattern of small improvements. But for shutterbugs on a budget, both smartphones might have something to offer in terms of features and gimmicks, not necessarily quality.

LG flagship phone Judy tipped for Summer (instead of LG G7)

On the 16th of February, a rumor of LG's next big flagship smartphone revealed the company's timing. This may well be the LG G7 - albeit not branded as such.

2018 LG V30 smartphone AI takes a page from Samsung Bixby

2018 LG V30 smartphone AI takes a page from Samsung Bixby

LG might be sitting MWC 2018 in terms of announcing its 2018 flagship, but that doesn’t mean it will be coming to Barcelona empty-handed. Yes, it will be presenting a “refreshed” LG V30 called, not the V30s but the 2018 LG V30. And, yes, it will be featuring some AI functionality. Don’t worry, though, because LG happily hasn’t gone overboard the way its rival has. But the new smartphone AI features will be adding to the 2018 V30 and other phones will easily be compared to what Samsung’s Bixby has been promising to offer.

LG V30 DxOMark score: good but not good enough

LG V30 DxOMark score: good but not good enough

When LG announced the V30, it boasted of two things about its camera: its crystal clear glass lens and its big f/1.6 aperture. Taken independently, those specs might sound amazing. But digital photography is more than just lenses or even megapixel counts. It’s about everything working together for the best effect. And as DxOMark found in its review of the LG V30, it might not have the best. That said, it’s still one of the better ones out there in the market.

Google Camera HDR+ mod can now use LG wide-angle cameras

Camera app mods are the new fad in Android after launchers and ROMs. With Google making near-exclusive features available only for its own phones, the desire and demand for ports for other phones have only become greater. Google Camera HDR+ has been one of the more popular ones that has even been branched off for other devices. Now another "spin" has made it out of the woodwork, with a new Google Camera HDR+ that supports LG's type of dual cameras, particular the wide-angle ones.

LG mobile losses in 2017 underscore its flagship schedule shake-up

The reason behind LG's decision to step off the yearly flagship smartphone upgrade cycle and take a more measured approach has become clear, with the company announcing its Q4 2017 financial results today.
