Beautiful ultra high-res wallpapers, perfect for your Pixel XL, Galaxy S8 and S7, LG G6, LG V20, HTC U Ultra and others

High-resolution, and high-quality wallpapers are not the easiest thing to find, especially if you have as many as 1440 x 2560 pixels to fill with information – as would be the case if your smartphone has a QHD display.

The reasons for that are several. Perhaps most importantly, however, it’s just exceedinly easy for wallpaper repositories to simply upscale lower resolution content to make it appear as if it would fit perfectly on your fancy screen, but the reality is that stretching the image takes a ton from the quality. And that’s not what you want if you’re looking …


Supposed iPhone 8 schematics reveal an LG G6-like device

Ever since the original iPhone from 10 years ago, Apple’s smartphones have had what we could call a signature design trait: large bezels (and, subsequently, unimpressive screen-to-body ratios). But this will probably change come September, when an iPhone 8 is expected to be unveiled, sporting a near-bezel-less 5.8-inch OLED display.

While we already tried to envision what the iPhone 8 could look like, we obviously can’t be sure of anything until Apple officially announces the device. Nevertheless, a recently leaked image (coming from China, and seen above) allegedly …

Hi-Fi version of the LG G6 with Quad DAC and Dual SIM capabilities surfaces in Singapore

Just the other day, we told you that the LG G6 variant sporting Quad DAC would soon be available in regions outside of Korea. One country that is greeting the device with open arms starting today is Australia. Another country that will be offering this version of LG’s new flagship is Singapore. A couple of images we received today from a PhoneArena reader show the LG G6 with labeling on the back promoting the Quad 32-bit DAC. The other picture shows the Quick Settings screen on the handset, which contains an on/off switch for the Quad DAC feature.

The Quad Digital-to-Analog converter in …

LG G6 with Quad DAC no longer Korea exclusive, will come to Australia later this week

Good news for fans of high quality audio: the Quad DAC LG G6 edition will no longer be limited to Korea only. Well, good news for fans of high quality audio in Australia, at least, as this appears to be the only confirmed non-Korea region to receive this version of the device so far.

The news comes from Ausdroid, who reports that the Hi-Fi edition of the G6 will be sold in a couple of Australian retailers: JB Hi-Fi and Harvey Norman. The device will be sold for AU$1,199, which is $900 in US currency. That is AU$191 more than the regular device’s price, …

Best LG G6 screen protectors


Apart from being a solid high-end smartphone, the LG G6 offers something that no other handset does: a unique FullVision display. With round corners and a 1440 x 2560 pixel resolution (for an 18:9 aspect ratio), the 5.7-inch flat screen of the G6 is certainly one of the phone’s highlight features. Thus, protecting this screen should be one of your highest priorities once you’re buying a G6.

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to find reliable screen protectors for the LG G6. In fact, you can get some of the best ones (lifetime replacement warranty included) for under $10 – check …

Deal: LG Watch Urbane 2nd Gen LTE on sale for just $179.99 (55% off) on eBay

LG Watch Urbane 2nd Gen LTE smartwatch has yet to receive Android Wear 2.0, but that will be coming very soon. Surprisingly, the South Korean company has already begun the rollout of the update to its older Watch Urbane and Watch R smartwatches, instead of upgrading the second generation LG Watch Urbane first.

Nonetheless, we’re convinced the LG Urbane 2nd Gen LTE will receive the Android Wear 2.0 update in the coming weeks, which would make the smartwatch even more appealing.

As it happens, there’s a great deal on LG’s smartwatch up on eBay. It appears that …

LG confirms Android Wear 2.0 rollout for Watch R and Watch Urbane, the 2nd Gen will get it in May

Android Wear 2.0 has started rolling out to some LG Watch Urbane and Watch R users a couple of days ago, but we did not get any confirmation from the South Korean company.

Well, it looks like our initial report was 100% accurate, as LG has just announced that Android Wear 2.0 is now being pushed to the original Watch Urbane smartwatch and the Watch R.

Unfortunately, if you’ve expected the latest Watch Urbane 2nd Gen to get the same treatment, then you might have to lower those expectations. LG states that this particular smartwatch model won’t be getting …

Watch the LG G6 survive a Mouse Trap like adventure and come out unscathed

Remember the game Mouse Trap? The idea was to put together a wacky Rube Goldberg-esque contraption piece by piece, depending on the roll of the dice. This weekend, LG released a video that shows the LG G6 being put through a number of obstacles while certain features appear on screen. It’s an interesting way to show off the durability of the handset, while confirming some of the specs and capabilities of LG’s new flagship phone to consumers.

Some of the features highlighted in the video include the IP68 certification rating which allows the device to be submerged to as deep as nearly …

Best smartphone cameras compared: HTC U Ultra vs Galaxy S7 edge, iPhone 7 Plus, LG G6

Not long ago, we had the pleasure of reviewing the HTC U Ultra – the company’s most-recent high-end phone. Long story short, it does not quite tick all the right boxes a $750 phone should, but the flashy design does impress, and the camera performed pretty well during our testing. Now it is time to focus on that main 12MP shooter the U Ultra boasts – more specifically, to compare it against some of its rivals.
For the purposes of this camera comparison, we took the HTC U Ultra, the Galaxy S7 edge, the iPhone 7 Plus and the LG G6 out for a camera …

Buy the LG G6 or LG V20 from T-Mobile and get a free LG G Pad X 8.0 tablet


How would you like to receive a “free” tablet on T-Mobile’s dime? Purchase the LG G6 or LG V20 from T-Mobile along with the LG G Pad X 8.0 using the carrier’s Equipment Installment Plan. Then, sign up for a data plan containing at least 2GB of data a month. Six to eight weeks later, you will be reimbursed for the tablet via a pre-paid MasterCard. In theory, the MasterCard should be used to pay off the remaining balance of the tablet. But you could decide to use it for something else; as long as you are making the monthly payments on the device.

Speaking of the tablet, the LG G Pad X …
