LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 tied in DxOMark ranking

LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 tied in DxOMark ranking

Don't worry, Google. The Pixel remains the top dog in DxOMark's list. The LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, despite their impressive specs and improved performance, don't even come close. Under DxOMark's usual battery of tests, the two scored the exact same 85, differing only in the details. While both sported dual lens cameras, they each interpreted the feature differently. Sadly, neither was able to achieve the pinnacle of mobile photography that itS peers are trying just as hard to grab.

LG outs new K, Stylus models embracing the mid-range

LG outs new K, Stylus models embracing the mid-range

If you think that LG, like Apple, has become too focused on the high-end, forgetting us mere mortals, this latest announcement aims to prove you wrong. As per its usual practice before major tech events, LG is pre-announcing new products, this time its line of mid-range Android smartphones under its still young K series as well as a new stylus-bearing Stylus 3. But while LG tries to explain what makes each one different, it still ends up making them all feel and look the same.

LG UltraFine 5K works with older Macs, needs an adapter

LG UltraFine 5K works with older Macs, needs an adapter

Are you disappointed that Apple discontinued its Thunderbolt displays? Do you own a not so recent Mac or MacBook? If you answered yes to both, then your prayers may have been answered. LG and Apple collaborated to make the UltraFine 5K monitor a stand in for Apple’s deprecated display, with a bit more talent. Even better, the monitors are on a discount until March next year. Even better than better, they’re actually compatible with older Mac models. Provided you have an adapter, of course, and are willing to settle for lower resolutions.

Apple’s 5K display of choice starts shipping as USB-C discount extended

Apple has begun sales of LG's 5K Thunderbolt 3 display, at the same time extending its promotional discount on USB Type-C accessories for several months. The LG UltraFine 5K Display was announced alongside the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar earlier this year as one of the few monitors to support Thunderbolt 3 natively. However, while it appeared - alongside its 4K sibling - on Apple's online store, it was not actually shipping.

LG WebOS 3.5 wants to make watching TV more magical

LG WebOS 3.5 wants to make watching TV more magical

Once upon a time, TVs were crudely simple appliances. Turn it on, switch to your channel of choice, sit back, and enjoy. Modern TV sets, however, have mutated to adapt to the more complex demands of today’s lifestyles. Especially smart TVs that add features to both make viewing more sophisticated as well as complicated. LG’s upcoming WebOS 3.5 release for its smart TVs aim to remove some of that complexity. Instead, it will replace it features to make the TV experience feel seemingly magical.

LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE takes a cue from a Lenovo Yoga

LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE takes a cue from a Lenovo Yoga

There’s a scarcity of notable Android tablets this year, save for the curious but eccentric Lenovo Yoga Book. LG seems to not want to end the year without a new slate, so it’s coming out with perhaps the last member of its G Pad III tablet series. In doing so, it has taken a page out of Lenovo’s Yoga design book, but not in the same vein as the Yoga Book. Instead, the new LG G Pad III 10.1 Full HD LTE comes with a kickstand of its own, but not exactly as multi-talented as a Lenovo Yoga tablet either.

LG V5 leak hints at an odd V-series mid-range phone

LG V5 leak hints at an odd V-series mid-range phone

Both the LG V20 and its predecessor, the V10, were known for quite a few things. They were premium handsets that focused on camera prowess and flaunted a small second screen strip. In typical LG fashion, however, it seems that the company wants to capitalize on its newly successful V brand. Unsurprisingly, there are rumors of a certain LG V5 that might be unveiled soon. Unlike what it does with the “G” series, however, it’s harder to discern where this V model will fall in the grand scheme of things.

LG G6 rumors: waterproof, wireless charging, non-modular

LG G6 rumors: waterproof, wireless charging, non-modular

If rumors and leaks were truly prophetic, then we practically have a near complete image of the LG G6’s key features. Those rumors have been pretty consistent in what LG’s next flagship will have. Or, more importantly, what it won’t have. According to the latest sources, the G6 will indeed ditch the modular feature that should have been, but wasn’t, the selling point of the G5 before it. In its stead, the G6 will feature allegedly more expensive waterproofing and wireless charging.

Android Nougat update: Xperia incoming, is your phone next?

Good news for those of you with an Xperia XZ or Xperia X Performance: your wait for Android 7.0 Nougat is about to come to an end.

LG G6 could have iris scanner, mobile payment features

Features for LG’s next flagship smartphone are piling up and they’re all talking about the latest and, maybe, greatest in mobile tech. It isn’t surprising considering the big opportunity for the LG G6 to snatch the crown from rival Samsung. In this latest round, the smartphone is believed to play host to iris scanning technology as well as LG’s own mobile payment system, both of which have already been prefigured in the past. Despite coming changes, LG might still be sticking to removable batteries, which should continue to delight fans.
