LG G Watch R, 1st Watch Urbane joins Android Wear 2.0 club

Almost mirroring the fragmentation on Android for smartphones, Android Wear 2.0's rollout is happening bit by bit and was even held back for a while by an undisclosed bug. But more than that, there are also smartwatches that may not even get the update at all. So it's probably with great joy that owners of the LG G Watch R, LG's first round Android Wear watch, and the first gen Watch Urbane were greeted by the update that brought their 2015 smartwatches to the present.

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

It's difficult to say exactly why it is Samsung and Apple dominate the smartphone market - but this video takes a crack at it. What we're looking at is a spinning iPhone 8 concept - a device that's most likely going to come out next year, but commands search terms in Google this year because "iPhone 7s" is too many characters to be bothered typing. What we see here is style - design finesse - a sense of assuredness in the phone's overall excellence. That's what Apple and Samsung have, or appear to have, that most other phone companies lack.

LG G6’s reliability put to a scratch and bend test

Next to the larger screen, the next big focus of the LG G6's marketing is its reliability. Normally, that translates to dust and waterproofing but JerryRigEverything is definitely interested in more than that.

LG G6 Review: The display is the key

After the ill-fated modular excesses of 2016, LG has found its head in 2017, and the LG G6 is all the better for it. Owners of the G5 may be left frustrated that the vision of interchangeable accessories and growing functionality they were promised has failed to pan out, but the rest of us are getting a far more rational - and, thus, usable - device instead. That all comes down to the G6's screen.

LG TONE Infinim HBS-920 brings back a classic, normal design

If you thought that LG was done announcing new TONE around-the-neck Bluetooth headsets, you'd be glad, or not, to be proven wrong. Not even the announcement of the Galaxy S8 from its bitter rival is enough to hit the brakes on LG's roll. Introducing the LG TONE Infinim HBS-920, bass-centric Bluetooth neckband headset.

LG TONE FREE mixes neckband with removable earbuds

LG TONE FREE mixes neckband with removable earbuds

Just a few weeks ago, LG formally started the retail availability of one of its weirder TONE headsets, the LG TONE Studio. This time, it is launching its other odd headset. At first glance, the LG TONE FREE looks like any old around-the-neck Bluetooth headset, like many of LG's other TONEs. That perception, however, changes when you pull out the earbuds. Because unlike other neckband headphones, these earbuds completely detached from the neckband, giving you truly wireless freedom.

LG may be riding high right now over the early praise of its new G6 smartphone, but owners of its older devices are still unhappy with the company.
