Pixel 2 XL screen problems VS iPhone 8 Plus, LG V30, Galaxy Note 8

Over the past few days a bit of controversy popped up over the display on the Pixel 2 XL. The most common issue seen in descriptions of the device seems to have to do with the device's coloring and/or texture. Our own review by Chris Davies said that the display on the Pixel 2 XL is "muted and blue-tinged off-axis."

LG’s VR headset may be named UltraGear: trademark filed

LG’s VR headset may be named UltraGear: trademark filed

Earlier this year, LG demonstrated a virtual reality headset prototype going by the codename SteamVR (and HMD) due to its intended use with Valve's SteamVR platform. Though the public got a look at this headset, the company wasn't ready to provide some important details, chief among them being this device's real name. Now it seems the company has settled on a moniker, as the name may have just been revealed in a newly surfaced trademark.

LG V30 fingerprint scanner fails when heavily scratched

LG V30 fingerprint scanner fails when heavily scratched

JerryRigEverything is back and he’s got his own LG V30 in his hands. The last time Zack Nelson was seen with the smartphone was when LG flew him over for a sponsored teardown and look into the V30’s prized cameras. Now the YouTuber has bought his own unit with no strings attached for the sole purpose of our entertainment education. He subjects the LG V30 to his usual trinity of stress tests and the smartphone survives as you would expect. Except for one minor, and unexpected, thing.

LG V30+ is also available on US Cellular

LG V30+ is also available on US Cellular

US carriers have redefined what the word "unlimited" means these days, and at least one seems to be redefining the word "only" as well. Two weeks ago, Sprint boasted that it was the "only major US carrier" to offer the LG V30+, but it naturally failed to mention other "minor" carriers that will offer it as well. And that is exactly the case when the LG V30+ unexpectedly popped up at US Cellular, and you won't even have to wait to buy one.

LG V30 now available from carriers, including T-Mobile

LG V30 now available from carriers, including T-Mobile

LG seems to have the worst timing this year, even, and especially, when it tried to actually steer clear of its competitors. It launched the LG G6 ahead of the Galaxy S8 but had to make do with last year's Snapdragon 820. And even when it had a month's time, it is launching the LG V30 just a day after Google made its big Pixel 2 splash. Nonetheless, LG fans and those that don't swing Google's way can now get the V30 from major US carriers. Yes, including from T-Mobile.

Google made a huge mistake with Pixel 2

Google made a huge mistake with Pixel 2

When the Pixel 2 was announced, I did not expect that Google would bring back wireless charging - and they didn't. Much to the surprise of the industry at large, Apple added wireless charging with the iPhone 8 and iPhone X this year. But Google didn't come back with wireless charging - not now, and not since the Nexus 4. Though their reasoning holds some water, it most certainly does not hold nearly enough.

Google Pixel 2 hands-on (with XL) : Two tones up close

Google Pixel 2 hands-on (with XL) : Two tones up close

While the Google Pixel 2 is largely (not entirely, but largely) the same as last year, the Google Pixel 2 XL is taken out a whole new door. The Google Pixel 2 XL device is manufactured by LG instead of HTC while HTC's manufacturing still works on the smaller device. The Pixel 2 XL's look sits somewhere between the Pixel XL (first gen) and the LG G6 - especially when it comes to the device's display.

Google Pixel 2 XL vs 1 : Release, Pricing, and Specs

Google Pixel 2 XL vs 1 : Release, Pricing, and Specs

Today we're comparing Google's 2nd-gen Pixel XL to the first, and the first Pixel to the 2nd. When this article was first written, we were working with specs that'd been leaked before Google's big event. After the event makes all specs official, we'll be visiting this article again to correct specs where necessary - though we don't expect a lot to change from here to there. The changes we have here are compared in images, as well, with press renderings of both the original Pixel and the Pixel 2, both standard and XL.

Android Wear Oreo beta is available on only one smartwatch

Android Wear Oreo beta is available on only one smartwatch

Android Wear development has been relatively slower compared to its smartphone sibling. In the almost two years of its public release, the smartwatch platform has had only two major releases. A new one, however, might be coming faster than before. Google has announced the availability of a new Android Wear release based on Android 8.0 Oreo. But if you were intending on helping Google developers test this out, you better have an LG Sport, as that is the only smartwatch it is currently available on.

LG V30+ will hit Sprint stores on October 13 with leasing deal

Sprint has announced that the LG V30+ handset will arrive in its stores on October 13, doing so alongside a new leasing deal that will get customers a second unit for free.

LG V30 US launch details you need to know

LG V30 US launch details you need to know

The time has finally come, and just in the nick of time. Or not. LG has just announced that its late 2017 flagship, the LG V30 will be hitting US shores in the next two weeks. Major US carriers have also put more specific dates on that promise, which all starts next week. But LG might have taken its sweet time far too long as those dates will inconveniently coincide with the Google Pixel 2 launch and the iPhone X pre-orders.

LG K7i phone has a mosquito repellent case

LG K7i phone has a mosquito repellent case

Yes, you read that right. LG India has just revealed the LGX230I, a.k.a. the LG K7i. While this Android phone is no premium device, it pulls double duty whether it’s in use but especially while you’re sleeping at night. That’s because the phone includes, at least in its case, ultrasonic technology that will keep mosquitoes away without any impact on other living creatures. Well, at least not humans.
