LG Doesn’t Stand For ‘Life’s Good’

I've been in South Korea this week checking out a bunch of cool AI and robotics stuff, and I thought I'd share a little nugget of information that I picked up along the way — LG doesn't actually mean 'Life's Good'. Read More >>

Rumour Claims Samsung Galaxy S10 and LG G8 Will Use Fancy Tech to Avoid Notching Their Screens

The latest trend in the smartphone industry is full-screen displays that minimise the bezel and take full advantage of a phone's size. There's still hardware that needs to be positioned on the front, though, so the majority of phone makers have resorted to adding a 'notch' to accommodate sensors, the front camera, an earpiece/speaker grill, and so on. But if the latest rumour is to be believed, Samsung and LG might implement fancy new tech to avoid any sort of notch or bar at the top of their next big phones. Read More >>

LG Is Stealing Its Own Thunder with the V35

The LG G7 isn’t even available yet (it officially goes on sale 31st May), but that hasn’t stopped LG from pushing out another big, expensive phone in the V35. Read More >>

LG’s G7 ThinQ Is Too Clever For Its Own Good

In Fight Club, there’s a scene when after meeting Tyler Durden for the first time, the narrator cracks a joke about how the people you meet on planes are single-serving friends. And then, before even giving his seatmate a chance to respond, he launches into an explanation of his witty turn-of-phrase. But before he can finish, Durden dryly retorts “Oh no, I get it. It’s very clever. How’s that working out for you?” Read More >>

LG G7 ThinQ Hands On: An Unremarkable Android Phone Joining a Sea of Unremarkable Android Phones

In 2018 it's hard to make your brand new smartphone stand out from the crowd. They all have basically the same features: big screens, a variety of biometric security solutions, fancy dual-lens cameras, AI of some sort, and more. The truth is, unless you have the words "iPhone" or "Samsung Galaxy" in your name, nobody really cares unless your device is dirt cheap or does something new and exciting. From what I've seen the LG G7 completely fails to draw attention to itself.

Looks Like OLEDs for iPhones Are Still Really Hard to Make

After last year’s delayed iPhone X release, Apple is trying to snag a few extra screens for its 2018 batch of iPhones. Unfortunately, the company is apparently running into trouble with its OLED display manufacturing partners, according to a Wall Street Journal report. Read More >>

Apple’s Newly Rumoured Smartphone Ideas Sound Straight Out of 2013

Now that notches are popping up on just about every new smartphone screen, Apple’s next iPhone will need some new tricks to stand out from its competitors. But if a report from Bloomberg is true, instead of coming up with entirely new ideas, it seems Apple may try to crib some features from a handful of five-year-old devices. Read More >>

This Is the Big Laptop to Buy When All You Care About is Packing Light 

When you pick up the LG Gram 15 for the first time you’re going to find yourself, inexplicably, transported to an Ikea furniture showroom. It’s because the LG Gram 15 is so light. It’s a 15.6-inch laptop that weighs less than a 13-inch Macbook Pro and the body is a made of an alloy that feels like plastic to the touch, and flexes with just a little pressure. So it doesn’t feel like a real computer. It feels fake—a prop for the showroom or maybe a stage. But the LG Gram is a real computer, with real guts that don’t exactly feel comparable to its real competitors. Besides its incredibly low weight the £2,279 LG Gram 15 never quite feels worth its price. Read More >>

A First Look at the Incredible Future of 8K TVs

Do you remember back in the '90s, when high-definition TVs first started to become popular? Seeing that HD for the first time, the sharpness seemed almost impossible compared to existing technology. But this year, several top tech companies showed off 8K screens with 16-times as many pixels as those old 1080p HD TVs. For me, seeing these new super sharp TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) felt like the first time all over again. Read More >>

CES 2018: Checking Out LG’s Prototype TVs Was Like Sending My Eyes to Disney World

The CES show floor might be filled with hundreds of TVs that put your local electronics store to shame, but the real treasures of the show, the TVs packed with technology we’ll have to wait for years to buy, are hidden in back rooms away from greasy fingers. Except ours, of course, as we had a chance to treat our eyes to the concepts LG Display brought to CES 2018. Read More >>

LG Unveils Voice Assistant That Ignores Your Questions, Just Like Real People

It would have been fair to call digital voice assistants the hot new game in town a few years ago. Now, that space consists of incremental advances by titanic companies pressing ever harder to make consumers reliant on AIs you already know: Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google’s unnamed, data-mining Assistant.

To Make Its Awesome TVs Better, LG is Looking Deep Inside

I’ve been dreading this moment for the last few years. The moment a company would tell me all about its new TV and spend more time on the processor than the display itself. That moment finally came last month when I sat in on a call for LG’s 2018 line up of televisions. While the company will still produce gorgeous OLEDs with some of the best picture quality available, the real distinguishing feature, as LG would have it, is the processor powering the TV.

I Really Want to See LG’s New 8K OLED TV in Person

CES is less than a week away, which means there are less than seven days before we’re inundated with news of crazy new TVs, laptops, and random crowdfunded gadgets that probably should never make it to market. LG Display (a subsidiary of LG), clearly hoping to get ahead of the rest of the news, took the opportunity yesterday to announce a giant, potentially gorgeous 8K OLED—the first of its kind. I’m pumped, but what I really can’t wait for is to experience it in person and see if it really is as precise, with as rich black levels as the image above suggests. Read More >>

The LG V30 Sold Its Soul For Mainstream Appeal, But Hey, Its Camera and Audio Are Even Better

For the last couple of years, autumn has signalled the release of LG’s V-series phones — the kind of big, funky phones that usually feel less like an attempt to put together a handset that people would actually want to buy, and more like an attempt to see how far LG could push itself. Read More >>
