LG Root Checker Tool causing rooted phones to lag terribly

LG Root Checker Tool causing rooted phones to lag terribly

As far as openness goes, LG seems to sit somewhere in between Sony, who mostly embraces unlocking its phones, and Samsung, notorious for keeping its devices locked down. It seemed that, for a time, LG has been appealing to Android power users and modders but apparently that may come at a cost. A few XDA members have noticed how their rooted LG phones were significantly slower than before they rooted. Doing some detective work revealed a certain Root Checker Tool to blame, and it is one that even rooted users can’t easily resolve.

LG V30 early teardown puts the focus on the cameras

LG V30 early teardown puts the focus on the cameras

JerryRigEverything’s Zack Nelson is perhaps best known for his scratch, burn, and bend tests, but he also does teardowns and, depending on how those turn out, puts them back together again. It seems that his antics have caught the attention of LG, who has invited the YouTuber to put its latest LG V30 to the test. Not for a stress test, however, but for a teardown and back. But unlike most teardowns, this one was designed to put a heavy emphasis on how great the V30’s cameras are.

LG V30 launches in Korea, rest of the world to follow soon

LG V30 launches in Korea, rest of the world to follow soon

Samsung and Apple have had their time in the spotlight, and, soon, it will be LG’s turn. The manufacturer has just proudly announced that the LG V30 will be starting to ship in Korea this week. As great as that sounds for that market, it does also mean that the V30’s global trek will also be starting really soon. And given the praise it garnered at IFA 2017, the V30 could give its rivals, especially Samsung and Apple, a run for their money.

Pixel 2 XL leak spills nearly all release info

This morning a set of images of the Google Pixel 2 were leaked, and many details were spilled therein. These devices were leaked in both black and white, one with all-black, the other with black, white, and a lovely little red. These devices are manufactured by LG and will be called Pixel 2 XL.

Nexus 4 Android Oreo build released (in the night!)

Nexus 4 Android Oreo build released (in the night!)

Google's announcement on Android Oreo suggested that not every Google-made and Google-sold Android smartphone would be getting the update. However, as often happens with these sorts of things, there's a developer out there with enough tenacity to bash this software into shape - or into the right shape for the job. In this case, that means bringing an Android Oreo to the LG-made Nexus 4.

Google Pixel XL 2 made by LG stops by FCC, launch date hint drops

Google Pixel XL 2 made by LG stops by FCC, launch date hint drops

Now that the iPhone X, as well as the iPhone 8 siblings, have been thoroughly revealed, the ball is once again in Google’s court and expectations are riding high. Sadly, this recent sighting at the FCC of the Pixel 2 manufactured by LG barely has anything to tell us other than it exists. Good thing, then, that we have less than a month to wait and see if the Pixel 2 will have the last laugh.

LG V30 Korean price confirmed, but there’s hope for the US

LG V30 Korean price confirmed, but there’s hope for the US

Marketing suicide? Perhaps marketing genius. Just hours after Apple took the veil off the iPhone X, LG releases availability details of the LG V30 in Korea. It is already tons lower than either the iPhone X or the Galaxy Note 8. But perhaps most important for interested US buyers, the Korean price actually brings hope that the LG V30 will be even more affordable when it does launch stateside.

LG V30 price might be higher than expected

LG V30 price might be higher than expected

Depending on who you ask or which source you believe, LG's late 2017 flagship might be a relief or a disappointment as far as pricing goes. Given the trend of flagship smartphones this half of the year, some expected LG to try and match its rivals Samsung and Apple. But, if this latest bit from industry sources is to be believed, the LG V30 might be priced, at least in Korea, starting at 949,300 KRW, roughly $840. That's a lot cheaper than the expected more than 1,000,000 KRW price tag that would match the Galaxy Note 8. But it's also significantly higher than the $750 leak we saw a few weeks ago.

This set of Pixel 2 images nearly confirms every detail

Details about the Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel XL 2 were revealed thanks to a set of images that preclude a launch in early October. Both devices are quite likely set to be manufactured by their own individual sources, one from HTC, the other from LG. But their innards are extremely similar - much like the first wave of Pixel smartphones, both with the same processor, RAM, and Android build. Today we're nearly on the button.

This Pixel 2’s details just out-designed Google

This Pixel 2’s details just out-designed Google

Designer R.Batinic submitted a concept design for the next Google Pixel this week with simple lines and tight borders. This design looks relatively similar to what we've seen in leaks, and some details appear to reflect what's been said by anonymous insiders. What we're going to do today is inspect this design and compare it to what we're pretty sure we know about the next Pixel and Pixel XL (2017).

LG V30 price tip is a breath of fresh air

LG V30 price tip is a breath of fresh air

As expected, LG showed up to IFA 2017 with the V30, it's fall flagship, in hand. So far, the V30 looks like it could be a worthy successor to last year's excellent V20. Just one thing remains up in the air: how much is this thing going to cost? In the era of $1000 phones, it's a valid question, and thanks to an LG giveaway we may now have a price.

LG V30 hands-on

LG V30 hands-on

The LG V30 is here, and the new smartphone has the potential to please photographers while it frustrates Android power-users. Revealed at IFA 2017, the latest iteration of the V Series marks something of a departure from what we've come to expect of that line, as LG narrows the gap between it and the G6.
