Samsung Galaxy S8 vs LG G6: Ultra-widescreen showdown

Introduction
Do you remember when you saw your first widescreen television? The boxy 4:3 screen was once so ubiquitous, but then it was like you blinked and – bam – widescreen sets were everywhere. And while wide 16:9 (or, rather, 9:16, in the dimensions most of us hold our phones) aspect screens have similarly become the de facto shape for smartphones, those days already seem numbered, with the first Android manufacturers introducing flagship devices with wider (or again, taller) screens than ever before. LG got that ball rolling last month at MWC with the launch of the G6, and now Samsung’s …


Galaxy S8 vs S7/S7 edge vs LG G6 vs iPhone 7: first camera samples

If you haven’t heard yet, the Galaxy S8 and S8+ were made official at a special Unpacked event earlier today. Although the surprise was somewhat spoiled by the enormous amount of leaks that we saw over the last couple of months, Samsung still managed to impress with its presentation.

The Galaxy S8 and S8+ are flashy to say the least, with their slender new 18.5:9 Infinity Displays, slim bezels, and refreshed user interface, but we know that many of you have already caught up on everything surrounding the bold new design, and are interested in how they …

LG announces the G6 Black Edition in South Korea

The LG G6 may not yet be officially available in the United States, but that doesn’t stop the company from releasing new editions of the device in its home country, South Korea. LG announced today it will release the G6 Black Edition, which features an all-black front, which different from the regular version, which features colored front bezels.

Granted, the black color option of the device already features black bezels as well, but this new option is for users who would prefer a more colorful back as well. Samsung will reportedly offer the same …

LG video shows off some UX 6.0 features on the LG G6

A video directly from LG shows off some of the features on LG G6’s UX 6.0. For example, with the 18:9 aspect ratio of the screen and multiwindow support, two side by side apps  are each seen as perfect squares. The new aspect ratio leaves the screen looking like two boxes stacked on top of each other. According to LG, square plus square equals a taller, wider and broader screen, which fills the entire display. LG aptly calls this “FullVision.”

Features on the camera include Grid Shot. This combines four pictures or videos into a collage. Match Shot combines two pictures or videos …

'A battery is like a bomb': check out how LG tests the G6 before letting it out of the door

Armed with Samsung’s Note 7 experience, LG has embarked on a heavy production testing spree for the G6, and recently let Korean media stroll the facilities where the phone is put through its torture paces. LG says that it ships 50,000 G6 units a day now, and has put safety as a first priority for every single one of them. We know you are most interested in how the battery holds up to pressure, but LG does other things to the G6 as well, like controlled drop tests where the phone falls from waist heights on steel, wood or carpet floors, and the results recorded by cameras lying around …

Unlocked LG G6 officially "coming soon" to the US

The brand new LG G6 is already available to pre-order via all major US carriers, but did you know that LG is also getting ready to sell an unlocked version of the phone?

LG Mobile’s official US website has it that an unlocked G6 is “coming soon,” though it doesn’t provide more details on this. We assume that the unlocked handset will be sold starting April, once all carriers already have it in stock, but that remains to be seen.

At the moment, there’s no word on how much the unlocked LG G6 will cost. However, since carriers are offering the smartphone for …

LG G6 vs LG G5

Introduction
Note: This comparison was made using a pre-production LG G6 running close-to-final software. While not much is expected to change for the final version of the phone, we’ve still decided not to display any benchmark results or charts. We’ll update the comparison as necessary once we receive the finalized software release.

If I had a dime for every time I saw someone using an LG G5 in public, I doubt I’d have enough cash to get me a bottle of soju. The phone didn’t sell as well as its maker hoped, and even though technically it wasn’t a poorly made device, its modular design …

What the Galaxy S8/S8+ and the LG G6 may look like next to an almost bezel-less iPhone 8

2017 is shaping up as the year of small bezels and big displays. Although phone makers have been trying to increase screen size without adding unnecessary bulk to their products for some time, it is only now that something of a more meaningful paradigm shift is emerging on the horizon. Yes, we’ve already seen a couple of “bezel-less” phones, but they didn’t have the mass-market appeal of your iPhones, and Galaxies, and Pixels, and they weren’t really meant to have it. Back in 2014, the Sharp Aquos was a bold and flawed device that showcased what smartphones could look …

The LG G6 is already shipping to some T-Mobile customers

T-Mobile today became the first US carrier to start shipping the LG G6, despite the fact that the smartphone’s official release date is April 7 (that’s more than two weeks from now).

As you may know, T-Mobile started taking pre-orders for the LG G6 yesterday. Somewhat surprisingly, at least two of the customers who’ve rushed to place orders received the handset today – and posted evidence on Twitter and Reddit. Most likely, other T-Mobile customers will also get their G6 way before April 7 if they choose to pre-order the device now.

Sold by T-Mobile for $650 – either outright, …
