LG G6 has an EXCEPTIONAL screen-to-body ratio: here's a size comparison vs Galaxy S7 edge, Pixel XL, iPhone 7 Plus, LG G5, V20

After tons of teasing, rumors, and a few leaks, LG has finally unwrapped its 2017 flagship smartphone — the long-anticipated G6. Imbued with the hopes to reimburse G5’s shaken market positions due to the lackluster G5, the G6 is a phone that drops all the controversial gimmicks in favor of all the essentialities that make a good device. 
It has a flashy new design with rather high screen-to-body size ratio, full metal build, and the good ol’ dual setup that’s already beginning to qualify as a signature feature of LG’s top-end …

LG G6 vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs OnePlus 3T: specs comparison showdown

The LG G6 is finally here and it seems to be pretty close to that no-compromise smartphone that LG lovers have been lusting after for a while now. 
Modular design is out — this one-off experiment proved to be unpopular with the regular Joes out there and didn’t really kick off. Instead, LG has opted for a full-metal, water-resistant body that really differs from everything else that LG has come up with so far. Probably the biggest highlight of the G6 is its screen size in relation to the front of the phone – it’s one of the most efficient devices in this …

LG G6 vs iPhone 7 Plus: Bezel-less vs Bezel-ful

The iPhone has long been blamed to have overly large bezels around the screen, especially the top and bottom. And while such kind of styling goes well with the smaller, 4.7” model, it makes the 5.5” iPhone 7 Plus a true behemoth. Fans have long started looking forward to the days when smartphones will turn into all-screen slates, with little to no borders around them, and 2017 is expected to be the year when manufacturers are going to take a major step towards this vision.
With rumors of Samsung …

BlackBerry KeyOne vs Apple iPhone 7 Plus vs Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs others: size comparison

The BlackBerry KeyOne is now official and it’s a rare breed: a phone with a full QWERTY physical keyboard, it stands out in the Android phone crowd. But how does that keyboard right below the main display affect the actual physical size of the device? After all, if it was not for it, the KeyOne is a phone with a 4.5-inch display, a tiny phone by today’s standards.
There are two important things here: first, it’s the screen aspect ratio, as this is a wider than usual display, so the phone is not as narrow as a regular 16:9 4.5″ phone, while …

Apple iPhone 7 Plus passes Sprint diagnostic test, and then explodes the next morning

Apple has started to investigate why an Apple iPhone 7 Plus, belonging to one Brianna Olivas, exploded. Pictures of the device taken in the aftermath of the explosion, were tweeted by Olivas. The day before the phone exploded,  it wouldn’t turn on which led Olivas to take it back to the Sprint store where she had purchased it in January.

The next morning, Brianna’s boyfriend took the phone off of the official Apple charger and put …

New pair of Apple ads portray the iPhone 7 Plus' 'Portrait mode'

Apple and advertising goes together like peanut butter and jelly, so it’s no surprising that the Cupertino gang has masterminded a new pair of ads. They are focused on the iPhone 7 Plus’ coveted ‘Portrait Mode’ feature, which blurs the background to come up with that “professional photo” look at zero manual effort involved.

Seeing the feature in practice and the results it’s capable of producing is enough of an advertisement by itself, hence the ads are entirely about that. They follow up on another pair of ads which Apple outed earlier in February. The 15-second works are available for …

Nostalgic about the Blue Coral Note 7? Xiaomi has just the Mi Note 2 fix

Call it what you will, but Chinese darling Xiaomi will be releasing a blue Mi Note 2, among other color versions, and the hue somewhat resembles that of the infamous Note 7 Blue Coral version.

Even if you decide that the blue Mi Note 2, as showcased in the photos below by Xiaomi’s CEO Lei Jun, is not at all like the Blue Coral Note 7, bear in mind that it’s still …
