LG is catching more heat over reported bootloop issues affecting two of its previously top-end handsets, the G4 and V10. With the matter still unresolved for many owners of both smartphones, the South Korean electronics firm now faces a class-action lawsuit that was filed in California. The suit seeks damages in an amount to be determined at trial, and also asks that a judge order LG to implement a program to repair all affected phones. Complaints about the so-called bootloop issue in regards to the G4 abound all over the Internet, everywhere from social media sites and Reddit, to YouTube and little nooks and crannies around the web. Fed up users also posted a petition demanding that LG launch... Read more...
With the release of the high-powered Android flagships (LG G4, Samsung Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 Edge, HTC One M9) out of the way, there hasn’t been much going on in the smartphone arena; well at least not until the OnePlus 2 makes an appearance later this month. Thankfully, LG is hoping to liven things up in the mid-range market with the G4 Beat, which packs in the look and feel of it its G4 big brother into a slightly smaller package. Whereas the G4 delivers a 5.5-inch (2560x1440) QHD display, the G4 Beat pares things down a bit with a smaller 5.2-inch (1920x1080) Full HD display. And while the G4 uses a 1.8GHz hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor with 3GB of RAM, the G4 Beat brings with it... Read more...
LG has been going full-bore with the smartphone announcements lately. The company impressed us all with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 808-powered G4 flagship, which is shipping this week worldwide, and just last week introduced the Lancet Windows Phone (which unfortunately is a decidedly budget-oriented device). And just yesterday, AT&T quietly launched the Escape2 Android smartphone for $179.99 off-contract. Today, LG has two more smartphone release for us, and they are based on the basic design of the flagship G4. As its name implies, the G4 Stylus comes with, well, a stylus and a slightly larger 5.7-inch display (the standard G4’s screen measures 5.5-inches diagonally). Although screen is larger,...

Calling the smartphone market "mature" is likely misguided, even if you consider its increasing saturation levels. In the U.S., however, much has changed over the past half-decade, but more important perhaps is what has become commonplace. While the initial players all jockeyed for their share of the smartphone pie, companies such as Kyocera and Sony have all but vanished, while Apple and Samsung are the only two options that some mainstream users even consider. LG's mobile CEO is aware of the current landscape, stating recently that it hopes to sell around 8 million G4 handsets by the end of 2015. Apple sells 8 million iPhones in a good month, so the scale and scope is well-defined. The LG G4,... Read more...
When it comes to 2015’s flagship Android smartphones, HTC struck the first blow with its One M9. The smartphone has largely been overlooked as a warmed over refresh of its predecessor (both in terms of specs and its design, which dates back to 2013). Samsung then stepped into the fray with its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge, and has already opened up a third manufacturing facility to keep up with Galaxy S6 Edge demand. And now, it’s LG’s turn to show us what it has in store for Android fans. Unfortunately for LG, many of the details of its next generation G4 (including pictures) have already leaked to the web. So today’s announcement just makes things official. LG’s tagline for the G4 is “See the... Read more...
