    Doing a video about VR is complicated in its own way, but when you talk about the HTC Vive, well, one video might not be enough.

Even if a company were to stack its latest flagship with all the hardware that today’s technology can offer, it doesn’t guarantee that it’ll serve everyone the same purpose.

    The year for me was 2001. I was just 21 years old and had just gotten promoted to the job of my dreams! As Operations Chief I would be in charge of managing a fleet of 12 aircraft, and I was so excited and scared at the same time. In this job you just couldn’t make mistakes, and I needed a tool to ensure I never forgot anything, and had computing power for quick calculations on the go. You might not remember this, but laptops back then were huge, and a new product was just surging to rescue people in need of mobile power - the PDA. A company you might remember as Palm owned the market ...

    Back in February when we were briefed by LG, the company claimed the main inspiration for the G5 was, quote on quote "to wake up our play instinct" and end the boredom surrounding smartphones lately. The era of experimentation ended in 2007, and the market is currently in desperate need for a shake up. Whether LG has achieved that goal has been a major topic for debate and controversy over the last few weeks, and it's now time to reach our final thoughts and conclusions.

Samsung has now decided to refine what it started, while LG has decided to boldly go where no smartphone has gone in a while.
