Take a minute to cruise through the Android Wear subreddit and you’ll find no shortage of posts from excited owners of the LG G Watch R and original Watch Urbane. Why are they so excited? Because the Android Wear 2.0 is arriving on their watches today. (more…)
Just in case you happened to skip our written LG G6 review because you prefer the video format, we’ve got something for you today. Our LG G6 video review is here!
In this video, we cover the same general thoughts as the written, but you will get my slightly tweaked opinion over Tim’s. Overall, though, we both view this phone very similarly. We both think LG did a heck of a job by building an ultra-premium smartphone with solid cameras and few (if any) gimmicks. This is a redemption story after last year’s G5 disaster, that’s for sure.
As Tim noted in the written portion, the Galaxy S8’s arrival is going to make it tough on LG once again, but I’d argue that you should still give this some serious consideration. This phone doesn’t really have any weaknesses, plus you get some added bonuses (dual cameras).
With the G6, LG is hoping to do something it was unable to last year — sell some phones. While we must applaud the company’s investment and willingness to try something new with the G5 (modularity), we’ve stressed multiple times that the implementation did not work.
In 2017, LG has scrapped the modularity entirely and is offering a completely redesigned smartphone. It has metal, glass, and a great 5.7″ QHD display with hardly any bezel surrounding it. It’s a night and day difference between last year’s G5, but is it enough to get people excited and on board? That’s what we’re here to find out.
This is our LG G6 review. (more…)
I know that world is still focused on yesterday’s big Samsung Galaxy S8 event, but the LG G6 launched today at Verizon. And we’re talking full launch, as in, you can walk into a Verizon store and buy one. Pre-orders are done, man.
If the Galaxy S8 and S8+ didn’t turn you on, the G6 is going to be an excellent option. It’s got really good specs, a big ol’ display with little bezel, water resistance, dual cameras, and a premium metal and glass design. It’s easily LG’s best phone in years. (more…)
The Galaxy S8 unveiling is hours away, yet LG still has a few days to go before the G6 arrives in US carrier shops. To get out in front of the ridiculous wave of coverage and focus that is about to be laid upon Samsung, LG has dropped its first G6 TV commercial. It’s a 30-second TV spot, and no, it doesn’t contain Jason Statham.
In our LG Watch Style review, we talked about how the watch’s $250 price tag seemed a bit steep for what you were getting. As solid as the watch may be, the lack of NFC, GPS, or wireless connectivity, made it a hard recommendation. With that said, at $179.99, it’s probably well worth a look.
Best Buy has all three colors of the LG Watch Style priced at $179.99 at the moment. That’s a $70 discount on the silver and black models, plus a $100 discount off the rose gold version. If you want to get into Android Wear, this would be a great opportunity to without breaking the bank.
