All the predictive text and auto-correct tricks in the world can’t make a touchscreen keyboard as usable as a physical set of keys. LG has updated one of the most portable Bluetooth keyboards available with an extra row of keys so that it no longer requires an extra key press to type numbers.
They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but when it comes to smartphones, consumers want more functionality, while expecting the hardware to keep getting thinner. With the G5, LG believes it’s found a way to meet those expectations by adding functionality through swappable modules.
HTC is thirsty for your dollars. To that end they’ve announced a new phone, the HTC 10, and despite looking like a rip off of all the other phones out there, it actually has a new idea packed into its glass and shiny metal chassis.
“What’s the best smartphone?” It’s a question I hear at least once or twice a month.
The new Magic Slot system, found in the upcoming LG G5, seems very slick in theory, but it’s some grade-A proprietary bullshit. You want all the magic this slot is gonna slide into your hand? Then get ready to love the G5 and only the G5. Forever.
We’ve just wrapped up the second day of Mobile World Congress, the annual mobile technology conference in Barcelona. We’ve seen smartphones, VR headsets, and some batshit crazy stuff (see photo above)—and almost all of it has been awesome. Here are some of our favorites:
LG is jumping on the VR bandwagon with the release of its new LG 360 VR headset, designed exclusively for the new G5 phone. We had a chance to try it during Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and ended up with some strong feelings. The LG 360 VR is way less immersive (and impressive) than other headsets like the Gear…
When LG announced its new flagship smartphone, the G5, at Mobile World Congress yesterday, it did something radically different. At the base of the phone, LG built a small slot that might just change everything.
Let’s talk about balls for a second. They’re super handy. They’ve done a lot for humans. And because of spherical objects, we have sports and automobiles. Heck—even the Earth is a giant ball.
After weeks of speculation, the LG G5 is finally here. This is the fifth generation of LG’s flagship smartphone, and this time around, the phone has been completely reimagined: The G5 has an aluminum case, includes a crazy expansion slot that we’ve never seen on a phone before, and supports a handful of accessories…
LG’s next flagship phone will be under wraps until next week, but if you’re in the market for something a little cheaper, LG has a few new things for your consideration.
LG hasn’t launched its new flagship G5 smartphone yet. It won’t for at least another week. But in a rather daring piece of marketing, it has just launched a case that you’ll put it in.
In case you weren’t already inundated with payment options, LG apparently thinks you could use one more. A new leak suggests that LG is ready to enter the payments world, but unlike its biggest competitors Apple, Google, and Samsung, LG will not be using smartphone technology to power your payments. Instead, the…
As we inch closer and closer to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we’re expecting smartphones aplenty, the rumor engines are currently cranked to eleven. New small iPhone details? MicroSD-equipped Galaxy?! Surfacephone.com?!?
You could say that, historically, televisions are the star of CES. After all, it was at CES in 1998 that the world saw the first ever high-definition TVs. Plasma TVs debuted at CES in 2001, and OLEDs appeared in 2008. This year, however, everything was pretty damn boring. That’s not a bad thing.
Can you see LG’s super-thin 4K OLED television in the photo above? It’s just 2.57 millimeters thick, giving it a virtually invisible profile.
That silly sci-fi dream of invisible screens that magically display graphics is inching towards reality. Thanks to LG, the world can now lust after a television that looks like it’s nothing more than a pane of translucent glass—and a very thin pane of glass at that.
LG’s added a see-through door to its new Signature line of fridges that lights up when tapped so you can check its contents without letting out the cold. But to save you the strain of actually physically opening the door when you see something you want, a simple foot tap now does that for you.
