Misfit's Flash Is a $50 Fitness Tracker That Packs a Punch

We first wrote about Misfit Wearables' first activity tracker, the Misfit Shine, back in 2012. Not only did it look absolutely gorgeous, but it never needed charging, and it was waterproof. It had some flaws, but for 100 bucks, it wasn't bad. Well Misfit's second wearable, the Flash, is here, and it just undercut… » 9/16/14 11:00am 9/16/14 11:00am

Shine for iPhone

You'd think it'd be easy to make a weather app but most are just terribly cluttered and vomit-inducingly ugly. Shine for iPhone actually cares about how you're going to use it—it's fast, gorgeous and super simple to use. » 5/17/11 6:00pm 5/17/11 6:00pm

LG's New Black Label Cellphone: First Look

LG is following up the love-it or hate-it Chocolate, and the Shine, with its third "Black Label" device: the as-yet unnamed cellphone you can see here. It looks a more serious and slender beast than the first two, and sports a five megapixel camera, tempered glass and a carbon-fiber finish. Other than that we can't… » 4/07/08 4:00am 4/07/08 4:00am

LG Shine Wood (Not Actually Made of Wood)

The LG Shine Wood LG-LB2500H, by all logical reason, should be made of wood. And while the Wood does sport a fine wood grain, users will be saddened to realize that no trees were killed in the making of this phone or its painted visage. » 10/28/07 10:10am 10/28/07 10:10am

Verizon's LG VX8700 Reviewed (Verdict: A Decent and Shiny Multimedia…

Even though we weren't that impressed with what was under the beautiful exterior of the LG Shine, Mark at Laptop Mag seems to like its brother, the VX8700, a bit more. He points out that it's definitely the sexiest V CAST phone on Verizon, even beating out the chocolatey VX8600. » 4/23/07 6:30pm 4/23/07 6:30pm

Fake LG Shine: the Diamond KG70 Shine

LG isn't very happy about the Shine knock-offs that have been floating around, issuing cease and desist letters to manufacturers. But that isn't stopping the sale of the Diamond KG70 Shine (yet). » 4/21/07 3:30pm 4/21/07 3:30pm

LG Shine Goes Candybar, Probably Still Meh

LG VX8700 Launched on Verizon: Good News

What timing. Yesterday, I reviewed the LG Shine long enough to give it a thumbs down. Today, Verizon launched the LG VX8700, the flip version of the same Shine with the same 2MP camera with design to die for and boring OS. The two share DNA, yet this one is worth considering. It's all about context. » 4/06/07 3:14pm 4/06/07 3:14pm

My 24 Hours with the LG Shine: Shiny and Sucky

I apologize for all the buzz on the mirror-faced LG Shine over the last few months. Across the Internet, it looked good. At CES, when I touched it, it looked good. I have a LG Shine here, and after spending a day with it, I've decided that it really is gorgeous (see the pics). And that it sucks. Let me name the ways. » 4/05/07 11:21pm 4/05/07 11:21pm

The LG VX8700 Shine flipper gets official for Verizon, as we saw before. It's a part of the Shine family—the daddy Shine isn't making it to the states—but the entirely-covered-in-steel baby is.

LG's popular Korean phone, the Shine, has not only been updated already, there's now two new versions planned for an eventual release.

LG is already hard at work making the next version of the , the KU970. While the exterior will remain as Shiney as ever, LG adds 3G HSDPA and a VGA camera.
