LG’s odd TONE Studio wireless headset begins its global launch

LG’s odd TONE Studio wireless headset begins its global launch

Around-the-neck wireless headsets have always been strange to look at but surprisingly effective. It combines the freedom of movement provided by wireless earbuds with the controls and structure of conventional headphones. LG, whose TONE headsets embrace this design, believes it can still improve on this concept. At CES earlier this year, it unveiled two new TONEs. One of those, the LG TONE Studio, is finally going on sale this week to bring its surround sound capabilities to your neck.

LG G6 won’t be hitting the US until next month

LG G6 won’t be hitting the US until next month

Although LG has already officially started sales of the LG G6 in Korea last Friday, it seems that the Korean OEM isn’t too much in a rush to roll out its new premium smartphone in one of the world’s major smartphone markets, the US. According to sources, it won’t be until early April that the LG G6 is going to launch in the US, which puts it precariously close to Samsung’s own launch of the Galaxy S8 worldwide.

Why the LG G6’s display leads the way in 2017

Why the LG G6’s display leads the way in 2017

It's fair to say the LG G6 looked pretty odd in the first leaked photos. By the time the Android smartphone hit the stands at Mobile World Congress last month we were pretty much inured - both from leaks and LG's own near-constant drip-drip-drip of announcements - to its tall & skinny design. Still, when you first pick it up you notice, even if subconsciously, there's something strange going on.

LG Phoenix 3 coming to AT&T GoPhone this week

LG Phoenix 3 coming to AT&T GoPhone this week

Not everyone needs or even wants a fully-featured, not to mention super expensive smartphone. Not everyone even needs all the perks of a postpaid plan, some of which may go unused despite being paid for. Some will settle for a “back to basics”, no nonsense smartphone and a super affordable prepaid subscription and be happy with it. For that class of customers, AT&T has its GoPhone offering, which will soon welcome the LG Phoenix 3 to its roster of prepaid devices.

LG G4, V10 will still get Android 7.0 Nougat this year

LG G4, V10 will still get Android 7.0 Nougat this year

Planned, some say forced, obsolescence is nothing new in business but it has become a rather thorny subject in the mobile industry. Devices, especially Android ones, are usually given only two years’ worth of major software updates, leaving them to become stale and “encourage” consumers to jump on more updated hardware. With the launch of the LG G6 and the release of Android 7.0, LG’s 2015 flagships, the G4 and the V10, were initially left by the wayside. LG has apparently had a change of heart and will be bringing Nougat to these two after all.

LG G6 pre-orders reach 40,000 in 4 days

LG G6 pre-orders reach 40,000 in 4 days

It seems that LG has gotten the break it has been waiting for. While we will never completely know if it’s because Samsung isn’t in the race just yet, the numbers do speak for themselves. Ever since it opened the doors last Thursday, LG has reported that pre-orders for the LG G6 has topped 40,000. That’s an average of 10,000 pre-orders per day. If 100% of that turns into actual sales by the end of this week, then the G6 is definitely off to a good start to be the Android king of smartphones this quarter.

LG G6 vs. Sony Xperia XZ Premium vs. Huawei P10 Plus – MWC 2017 Mobile Showdown

As the dust of MWC 2017 settles, we take stock of all the announcements, teasers, and devices that rained down in Barcelona. We definitely have enough interesting smartphones, high-end or otherwise, that makes Samsung’s relative absence almost negligible. LG’s return to essentials with the G6, Sony’s hybrid of two generations of flagships with the Xperia XZ Premium, and Huawei’s unyielding commitment to Leica lenses with the P10 Plus.

Of course, the question always boils down to “which is the best smartphone of 2017”. And, of course, the answer is never straightforward. While we wait to spend more quality time with each of these three, we take a quick recap of what make each one your best smartphone of 2017.

LG is working on a SteamVR headset

LG is working on a SteamVR headset

Smartphone makers are jumping on the virtual reality train and most of them, unsurprisingly, put the smartphone at the center of it. That’s true even for Samsung, even though it has gone its own path rather than get behind Google’s Cardboard, and now Daydream, platforms. LG is finally following suit but it is following HTC’s lead instead and in more ways than one. Not only is it aiming for a PC-powered VR experience, it is also using the same SteamVR platform as the HTC Vive.

This is how much the LG G6 will cost

This is how much the LG G6 will cost

It is the case these days that, with some exception, most companies don’t completely reveal critical availability details for a newly announced product. And by “critical”, we mean when it will actually start selling and for how much. This gives said companies enough time to adjust their figures in between announcement and launch. Lately, however, companies have started to shorten the gap between those two dates. The LG G6, for example, will go on sale starting March 10, at least in Korea. It’s price tag, however, might not be something you want to hear.

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

The LG G6 is live and official and is definitely one of the most interesting smartphones this year. Its 18:9 screen is just begging to be tested in the real world. That said, LG has so far left out the details of when the smartphone will actually land in the real world. Unsurprisingly, major US carriers are quick to jump on board and give us at least a season. At least one carrier goes the extra mile, or even more, to bring us what is calls the world’s farthest unboxing.

LG G6 hands-on: It’s all about this amazing screen

LG G6 hands-on: It’s all about this amazing screen

If at first you don’t succeed, go back to basics and squeeze out the best of the best features minus all the gimmicks: that’s just what LG is doing with the highly anticipated G6. It's 2017, and it’s abundantly clear that, since the launch of the G5 and the abject lack of interest in the whole "module" concept, it’s time for the Korean mobile phone manufacturer to make a sharp about-turn and focus on what matters most: making a solid phone. That being said, when I met with LG’s designers for both devices in South Korea earlier this month, it was made abundantly clear that the design of the G6 was already being considered in parallel with the G5. That helps explain why the two phones feel so very different.
