    One weekend separates us from the official unveiling of the LG G4, the company's 2015 flagship, replacing the well received LG G3 from 2014. Despite basically being an unannounced phone, there's a lot we know about the device (actually, there's a lot more we know than what we don't). This is thanks to, on one hand, LG teasing most of its features, and, on the other, thanks to leaks we've seen. Pricing, however, is still a mystery, but according to a recent report, the LG G4 will be priced just like the Samsung Galaxy S6 (which is already a darn expensive phone). Of course, as we've seen in ...

    We're days away from the official reveal of the LG G4 at this point, which means that this is just about the time that leaks start flooding in. A leak out of Iran looks to confirm additional LG G4 details we did not know even after the massive microsite leak that revealed what we thought was everything about the phone. Specifically, a dual-SIM model looks to be confirmed. Additionally, LG has revealed officially some more UX 4.0 details – UX 4.0 is the skin the G4 will feature atop Android Lollipop. On the Iran leak point, a series of photographs has arrived thanks to Zoomit.ir (linked ...

    We've spent a lot of time talking about the G Flex 2 lately, praising it for its design, comfortability, and camera. We've discussed it on the last few episodes of the Pocketnow Weekly, and even the intermittent lag, one of our only complaints about the device, seems to have been fixed in the US version we tested. But while we love the curvy screen and the flashy crimson red casing, there's one part of the phone that we've practically left out of the conversation: its self-healing back. Our own Michael Fisher already tested the durability of the self-healing coating on the original G ...

    LG's upcoming G4, and its respective event, are all we are used to talking about recently when it comes to the South Korean phone manufacturer, but, the company also has a rather beautiful smartwatch up its sleeve, one we took a close look at while in Barcelona for the 2015 MWC. The LG Watch Urbane rollout begins this week, according to the official wording from the manufacturer. It will start in South Korea, followed by key markets in North America, Europe and Asia in the weeks to come. Those who have access to a Google Store (namely customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong ...

    LG's G4 is set to launch in just a matter of days, and when sales of the phone finally begin, shoppers will be able to take one home in a number of attractive leather finishes. Don't worry, those of you who aren't the biggest fans of the leather-backed imagery that's dominated much of what we've seen from the G4 to date – even though the leather covers will be G4 options, they won't be the only ones, and we've already seen some more traditional plastic backs. But if leather is your thing, you're going to want to check out LG's latest G4 teaser video, which is all about -you guessed it- ...

    There was a time in not too distant history when LG's flagship smartphone had flat screens, and those with curved displays were reserved for the G Flex series. But with the G4 on the horizon, rumors started arriving that even this flagship model could be going the way of the G Flex, and picking up a curved screen of its own. In the time since, we've seen a number of officially sourced G4 images, and sure enough, it does appear to have a slight curve to it – really, really slight. Now we're getting some hard figures about the full extent of that curve, and there's a good reason it doesn't ...

    LG has made it a point with its recent phones to show that it welcomes smartphone users with all needs. Its already-diverse portfolio is getting even larger today, with the introduction of the budget-friendly LG G Stylo. The device (as the name implies) carries a stylus as one of its headlining features, though the meaning is twofold – LG says it also refers to the phone being "stylish". Let's first talk about that stylus. It's throwing in a Q Memo Plus widget with the G Stylo, which can be used to take notes using the new-and-improved writing utensil. LG notes that the display of the ...

    We last got our hands on the LG Watch Urbane way back in March at the Mobile World Congress trade show in Barcelona, though the device has remained relatively off-the-radar since then (with the one notable exception being yesterday, when Google revealed that the wristwatch would be the first to make use of the latest update to Android Wear, throwing in better emoji support, WiFi, and more). Now the watch is back in Spain, this time for an official LG Watch Urbane teaser video drumming up anticipation for the device's actual launch. One thing we should note is that the video below shows us ...

    If curved smartphones are your thing, and the Galaxy S6 Edge is something you don't like (or can't afford), the LG G Flex 2 is something you should definitely consider. We looked at it closely, not once, but twice (international version and US Sprint variant) but the phone is making its way to AT&T soon. Friday, April 24, is when you will be able to grab the AT&T LG G Flex 2 in select AT&T retail stores and online. Platinum Silver is the color which will be available (unlike both of our review units), and there are a lot of pricing options to choose from: to quote from the ...

    LG is doing its best to tease the April 28 event where the G4 will be unveiled, and the manufacturer didn't mind telling us all about the screen and camera sensor inside the upcoming flagship. The leaks showed us the exterior and LG follows up on the display-centric teaser we've recently seen with an LG G4 camera teaser video. Photographer Colby Brown talks about his "new camera" which is the LG G4, as you will find out at the end of the embedded video below, a camera that is said to be great. How great will all depend on the results we're going to see once we get the G4 in our review ...

    We're still a solid week away from LG's official G4 launch event, but that clearly hasn't stopped the manufacturer from getting an early start to promoting the smartphone. It's already been sharing hardware pics, talking about phone components, and generally getting us excited about the G4's pending debut. Its latest attempt to do just that comes from the company's native South Korea, as it shares some of the bonuses that are set to come along with G4 ownership. Just like HTC offers with its Uh Oh protection for the One M9, LG will replace a damaged G4 screen for one full year following ...

    The LG G4 is nearly here, having leaked six ways from Sunday in advance of its upcoming April 28 launch event. And while that means that much of the phone's design has been revealed, questions about the hardware remain. One of the bigger ones has concerned precisely which SoC will power the handset, and while a Snapdragon 810 might have once been the safe assumption, a theory landing last month posited that the phone might instead run a Snapdragon 808. Now this week a new image has arrived that attempts to confirm that SoC choice, and the evidence is already stirring up a controversy. ...

    Back in January, I got my hands on LG’s latest curved contender, the G Flex 2, at CES 2015 alongside Michael Fisher and Jaime Rivera. The following month, Michael took a closer look at the device and praised it for its ergonomic design, but ultimately had trouble recommending it for its poor battery performance and sluggish performance. There's just one problem: the unit he tested was made for South Korea. That makes factors like battery endurance, cell reception, and price hard to judge properly for most readers ... which is where I come in. I’ve spent a week with the Sprint G ...

    Forget the rumors surrounding the LG G4 for a second, there's another phone to discuss now. A couple months back, we first heard of an LG phone flying under the codename LS770 being approved by the FCC in the United States; at the time, we weren't quite sure what the phone was, although we did know of the existence of a 5.8-inch display and a respectably-sized 3,000 mAh battery. But now new information has brought us some clarity – TechnoBuffalo reports that this phone is actually an upcoming phablet from the South Korean OEM. Let's dive straight into these LG Stylus rumors. Most ...

    Over the weekend, the LG G4 floodgates opened, with a leaked LG microsite divulging so many of the phone's assets that it might as well have already launched. Officially, though, we're still waiting for LG's April 28 event, and in the time leading up to the festivities, the manufacturer is continuing to tease the phone. Overnight we shared with you a video highlighting the G4's quad HD display, and now we get to check out some new still shots, as LG shares them on social media. The image you see up above arrives with the note that the G4's attractive leather cover is tanned via a ...

    LG hasn't been holding back teasing its upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG G4. Even though we've seen what's probably every bit of info about the phone already leaked thanks to a microsite that surfaced over the weekend, there's still more info to be had, and we're glad LG is keeping the teasing going for its April 28 New York City / London G4 launch event with this LG G4 display teaser video. As previously mentioned, this video focuses specifically on the 5.5-inch QHD display the LG G4 will have. In the video, LG says "you deserve this," and by "this," the company is referring to the ...

    Flagships are a way for OEMs to show off their latest and greatest technologies and prove,once and for all, they are king of the hill - for a little while anyway. Today HTC has the One M9 and Samsung has the Galaxy S6. Both are powerhouses in their own right, but the LG G4 could eclipse each of them. Looking at the specifications, the three top-tier phones all seem to be pretty closely matched. HTC and Samsung opt for 4 x 4 processor configurations with the LG G4 employing a six-core solution. RAM is the same across the board. LG and Samsung have screens with the same resolution, but LG ...

    When Windows Phone first premiered, the lineup was full of models from prominent Android manufacturers: companies like HTC, Samsung, and LG. That landscape has very much changed in recent years, though there's still the occasional reminder of the past, like the HTC One M8 for Windows. But Microsoft may be turning to more of these old allies for upcoming Windows handsets, and a rumor from earlier this year suggested that LG could be cooking up a new one for Verizon. There's still a lot we don't know about these plans, but the arrival of a new render attempts to add some support to the ...

    Just in case the teasing concerning the LG G4's camera – a good bit of it, too – we have additional leaks today out of the Korean press to further add to the discussion surrounding the LG G4's camera. Considering how ridiculously good the camera sound on paper, these LG G4 camera details should be well received by skeptics of the phone's ability. In an earlier release from LG Innotek, it was claimed that the sensor in the LG G4 would be able to capture 80% more light than the LG G3. How is this possible at all, you ask? The answer may lie in a much bigger lens itself – a six-layer ...

    What's a smartphone launch without leaks, right? The LG G4 is set to be announced on April 28 in New York City and London press events, but what appears to be a slip on the company's side has resulted in the outing of the entirety of the smartphone – we're talking what looks to be every single feature the phone has to offer. It's possible this is all a very elaborate fake, but this is likely the entirety of the LG G4 revealed. There are lots of issues with the microsite in question which have led many to believe that this could be a well-placed fake, though it looks to us like an ...

    April 28 is when LG is going to unveil the 2015 flagship, the G4, and the company is not shy about letting everyone know when it will happen, and what to expect. We're referring to the leather-back phone on the invite, which also unveils some camera bits. Apparently, the LG G4 camera will be better, as the company has just announced its brand new camera module, the one that will be featured on the G4. We're looking at an aperture of f/1.8, and LG Innotek claims it is the "widest aperture camera developed for a smartphone". 80 percent more light (compared to the LG G3) is what LG claims ...

    LG has, over the past few weeks, begun the most unique smartphone launch process we've seen from any manufacturer to date. It's been outing details of the phone in an almost overwhelming manner – we've learned about the f/1.8 camera lens as well as the 5.5-inch QHD display already, and seen strong hints that there will be a leather version. We thought the company had reached the extent of revealing information when it outed LG UX 4.0, the software skin the G4 will utilize, but it's not stopping there – the South Korean OEM has just announced an LG G4 giveaway, to seed 4,000 units of ...

    LG's next flagship smartphone will launch in just three weeks. The first save-the-date notice the company distributed was a little coy about naming the device it concerned, avoiding "G4" directly and instead making some general references to G-series devices. But then in that new teaser video we shared with you overnight, the manufacturer put aside any trappings of mystery and got nice and clear, publicly stating its intent to reveal the LG G4 on April 28. Now it's time for LG's formal event invitation to arrive, and it may just offer us our best look at the G4 yet. Following that ...

    LG this year has gone all-out teasing its newest flagship smartphone, with the unveiling of display specifications and nearly every detail of the software skin weeks ahead of the device itself. It's keeping the ball rolling just hours after filling us in on LG UX 4.0 with a teaser video published on YouTube to highlight one key feature of the phone – while also offering us what's likely a look at the device's silhouette. That one key feature? It's the camera. LG offers us just one hint: f/1.8. That's almost certainly referring to the camera's lens and its aperture value; considering the ...

    Back in 2013, a device known as the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition was quietly launched, and just as all Google Play edition devices (for the most part) it's been receiving quick updates to the latest version of Android over the past few months. That tradition isn't about to end, with the LG G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition Android 5.1 update (what a mouthful) now heading out to owners of the device. According to a device in Android Police's possession, as well as a Twitter user (in the source link below), the update is heading out to devices as we speak. It brings all the improvements ...
