T-Mobile intros the LG V30+, 128 GB of storage space and premium headsets included


Previously sold only by Sprint and US Cellular, the LG V30+
(or V30 Plus) is now ready to be released on T-Mobile – which, of course, is
already offering the regular LG V30.

 

T-Mobile will officially launch the LG V30+ on November 17
– that’s also the day when the carrier starts selling the rugged Samsung Galaxy
S8 Active. According to T-Mobile, the V30+ will be available in limited
quantities, costing $850 outright, or $130 down and $30 per month over 24
months. This makes the new handset $50 more expensive than the regular V30.

 

There are only two differences between the LG …

Apple iPhone X vs LG V30: first look

One of the biggest surprises this fall happens to be the LG V30, a refined product that has been highly praised by critics as the no-bull smartphone – offering a wealth of uncompromising features. Meanwhile, the hype surrounding Apple’s latest device, the 10th anniversary iPhone X, is in full swing as buyers packed stores and shops to pick it up recently. Apple’s reputation isn’t necessarily on the spot, given how its iPhones are continually popular amongst consumers, but for LG, they’re on the upswing after last year’s sour performance, so it’ll be interesting to see if the V30 …

Law firm recruits Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners for Class Action suit against Google, HTC and LG

With reports that the screen on the Pixel 2 XL suffers from screen burn-in, black smear and other problems, Google could face a Class Action lawsuit filed by those Pixel 2 XL buyers who are having issues with their displays. The phone, manufactured by LG, employs LG Display’s 6-inch pOLED screen. The “p” before the OLED acronym stands for plastic, and the display employs a QHD+ resolution.

Once certified by a judge, a Class Action suit consolidates individual law suits filed throughout the country for the same issues. A law firm by the name of Girard Gibbs LLP is already looking to recruit …

Razer Phone size comparison vs Galaxy Note 8, S8, S8+, Pixel 2 XL, LG V30, iPhone 8 Plus, and all the rest

With no RGB lighting in sight, gaming company Razer has just officially forayed into the smartphone market, a niche that is not quite welcoming to newcomers. The likes of Samsung, Apple, Google, Huawei, and LG are not going to voluntarily squeeze themselves so that the gaming paraphernalia giant could fit in. 

But what if it caters to a subniche that remains largely ignored – mobile gaming? True, mobile gaming doesn’t hold a candle to PC and console ones, but there’s still a large bunch of smartphone users whose needs for exceptional framerates …

HTC U11+ vs Galaxy Note 8 vs LG V30 vs Pixel 2 XL: Autumn flagship specs comparison

HTC U11+ is now official with a pretty intriguing translucent design and some rather saucy specs, including a rather large battery at the rear.
But is the hardware bump over the original HTC U11 enough to justify the existence of the U11+, and moreover, is it enough to ensure that the phone will compete on equal grounds with all of its rivals? 
As usual, there’s only one way to tell if that’s the case, and of course, it involves putting the newcomer against its fiercest contemporary rivals and comparing the specs toe-to-toe. Today, …

Best smartphone cameras compared: LG V30 vs iPhone 8 Plus, Galaxy Note 8, HTC U11

Fun fact: the first digital camera was invented in 1975. It weighed 8 pounds and it required 32 seconds to record a 0.01-megapixel image onto a… compact cassette. Today, a camera a million times better fits in a pocket. Yup, it’s your smartphone we’re talking about, and whether you’re an iPhone user, a Galaxy fan, or a BlackBerry hipster, your personal handset is a tiny hand-held miracle. 
Yet not all smartphone cameras are made equal. While pretty much all high-ends can take good photos in a broad range of conditions, some go above and beyond, …

LG testing Android 8.0 (Oreo) for the LG G6?

A benchmark test run on Geekbench seems to indicate that LG is testing the new Android 8.0 (Oreo) build of the operating system on the LG G6. The unlocked international version of the phone with the model number of LG-H870, was benchmarked with Android 8.0 running the show. The LG G6 launched earlier this year with Android 7.0 Nougat pre-installed. The rest of the benchmark tests merely confirmed specs already known, since the phone was released on March 10th of this year.

It obviously isn’t a surprise that the LG G6 will be updated to the new Android build. After all, the phone is still …
