The LG V30 is an outstanding camera phone, but with LG falling short in terms of battery life in the past, we wondered whether it has finally improved with the V30.
To test that, we have the LG V30 go through our battery test and the results are in.
The LG V30 is in fact the LG phone with the longest-lasting battery when we speak about flagship-grade products. While we did have troubles even getting through a day with the original LG V10 and the LG G5, the company has steadily been improving since than. But it is not …

Jony Ive: The iPhone X marks "a new chapter" in design, but Apple has more big ideas in store

Even though it’s yet to be released to the public, the iPhone X is already a fairly controversial device. Sure, it has an interesting new design, but many fans have expressed their concerns about the drawbacks associated with it. The two biggest culprits are, of course, the display notch (which may prove to be a distraction when using the phone in landscape mode) and the removal of TouchID (which some people find less obtrusive than using facial recognition).

But whether you like the new iPhone design, it’s starting to become apparent that Apple will …

Cook: Our products are not only for the rich; analyst sees big drop in Apple's stock after tomorrow

Some people complain that Apple manufacturers devices for the rich and wealthy, and that as a result, they are priced out of purchasing Apple products. But if you ask Apple CEO Tim Cook, he will disagree. Speaking to Fortune, Cook points out that an Apple iPad and an Apple iPhone can be purchased for less than $300 each.  “And so these are not for the rich,” said the executive. The Chief Executive also pointed out that with an active installed base of over 1 billion products, Apple couldn’t be manufacturing just for the rich since there aren’t that many rich people in the world. Cook also …

Analyst sees Apple's AR smartglasses becoming bigger than Apple Watch, just as big as the iPad


Earlier this year, we passed along some comments from former analyst Gene Munster, who claimed that Apple iPhone sales will peak in 2019  with Apple’s smartglasses launching the following year. At that point, Munster sees the iPhone getting replaced by the AR powered glasses as the biggest selling product in Apple’s lineup. Another analyst, Bernstein’s Toni Sacconaghi, wrote a note to clients stating that as much as Tim Cook loves AR, it won’t impact Apple’s bottom line until the company produces a pair of smartglasses.

Like Munster before him, Sacconaghi expects Apple Glasses (as …

Alleged Pixel XL 2 case compared to original Pixel and Galaxy S8 – yeah, it's big

So, it has been reiterated time and again by the rumor mill that we will be seeing a Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2 — a compact and a super-sized flagship by Google, just like last year. It’s expected that they will have the new 18:9 display ratio, which seems to be hip and cool in 2017, and it’s still unclear how that would impact their physical sizes.

A series of images compare a Galaxy S8 and a 2016 Pixel to what is allegedly a case for the upcoming Pixel XL 2. Now, that’s all well and good, and you can take a look at the photos below, but we couldn’t help but notice a headphone jack cutout on …
