Sit down, US consumers. We aren’t talking to you.
LG announced yesterday that they are beginning the global rollout of their new flagship, the G4. (We reviewed it the other day, by the way, in case you missed that bit of fun.) That global rollout, though, doesn’t yet include the US. No sir, LG instead wanted to share word that they are readying things in Hong Kong before moving onto Turkey, Russia, and Singapore. They will then “eventually” launch in most of Europe, North America (that’s you!), and a bunch of other places. (more…)
According to one of our sources, LG should be lining up a few free gifts for purchasers of the new G4 smartphone. Likely redeemable by any G4 buyer, regardless of carrier, LG should be gifting a free replacement battery, spare battery charger, and 32GB microSD card when you signup through a dedicated promo website.

Yesterday, retired leaker @evleaks told us to expect a never-before-seen LG tablet on Verizon in the near future. He called it the G Pad X, which sounds a lot like a continuation of LG’s G Pad line of tablets that included the G Pad 8.3 LTE. While we still don’t know much in terms of specs, price, or a timeframe for release, Evan did post a picture of the device today. (more…)
As we keep getting deeper into 2015, more flagship devices are being released by all of the big OEM players, and soon, folks will be able to grab the G4 from LG. Even though we don’t have an official date from the company yet, we were fortunate enough to grab a review unit from LG while attending the unveiling event in New York City and have spent the last couple of weeks testing out its every feature, to see if it can compete with the likes of HTC and Samsung.
The G4 has stiff competition in 2015, mainly from Samsung and its new Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge devices. The S6 and S6 Edge have been met with overwhelmingly positive reviews, stating its camera and display can’t be beat, but after spending almost two weeks with this phone, it is quite apparent that the G4 can easily carve out a space for itself in the ever-changing Android ecosystem.
This is our LG G4 review. (more…)
According to former leaker extraordinaire, @evleaks, the newly announced and mostly underwhelming Sony Xperia Z4 may be on its way to Verizon, along with a new tablet from LG called the G Pad X. Through a Tweet, in typical minimal @evleaks style, all we are told is that these two devices, along with a new iPad mini and the Desire 526 are “coming” to Big Red. No pictures were included. (more…)
The LG G4 has a fantastic camera that we have discussed plenty of times. In a new video, LG brings Colby Brown back, the nature photographer, to discuss how to take better photos on the upcoming smartphone. (more…)
The day that LG announced the G4, we reached out to their PR team to get confirmation on whether or not the phone supported Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0 technology. There were mixed reports floating around on G4 unveiling day, so we wanted to get official word. LG told us that it most definitely did not support Quick Charge 2.0. Instead, they were excited to talk about the phone’s semi-quick charge 1.8 capabilities. (more…)
