    Back in the days when talking 2G, flip phones, and PocketPC on message boards was still a thing, LG had what you might call a reputation. While the company pushed out its share of winners in the heyday of the feature phone, it also often played second fiddle to the competition in aspects ranging from build quality to cellular reception. For a time, LG was more curiosity than contender in the world of mobile technology. The tide began to turn sometime around 2007, when in the wake of the first iPhone launch, LG started producing very competitive handhelds for Verizon Wireless that split ...

It's a device so hotly anticipated it's been leaked about 40 million times and its projected release date has come and gone three times a week since June [citation needed]. Whenever it finally lands, it will represent the cream of the crop in the pure-Google experience, a Nexus handheld with no rival. With all this New Hotness just around the corner, and as one of the hordes of tech bloggers always complaining about the ever-thickening coat of paint OEMs keep slathering ...

    When it comes to smartphones, I'm a pretty shallow guy. It doesn't matter what capabilities are baked into your software, how long your battery life is, or how vast your internal storage; if you're not a good-looking device, you're not coming home with me. So it was with a halfhearted smile and forced enthusiasm that I walked into the LG event in NYC yesterday, responding to a company rep's "are you excited?" with a too-blunt "is there coffee?" It's not that I wasn't looking forward to the show - I was. But the company's newest flagship had already been leaked so thoroughly that we knew ...

    For the past few years, most new-product announcements from South Korea's LG have been greeted in America with a heaping helping of "who cares?" The company has spent so long in the shadow of its more-successful rival Samsung that its smartphones, particularly in the United States, have struggled for even moderate mind share. That struggle is also a product of the widely held conception that LG devices just aren't that good, a conception that devices like the LG Intuition have only reinforced.
