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.

In case you were hoping to get your LG G6 pre-order in this morning on a carrier other than Verizon, Sprint and AT&T have opened up their sales, too. (more…)
We weren’t expecting Verizon’s LG G6 pre-orders to go live until tomorrow, March 17, but Big Red surprised us this evening with availability right now. That means you can head over to Verizon’s site at the link below, drop in your pre-order, claim your freebies, and own one of the best phones of the year.
As a reminder, if you pre-order from Verizon, you have a chance to walk away with a free 43-inch LG Smart TV ($349 value) and a free Google Home. Details on all of that can be found at this post. (more…)
After a bit of a wait, we now know when we can pre-order the LG G6, when it’ll arrive in stores, which carrier has good promos, and exactly how much it will cost at most carriers. Yes, my friends, we have LG G6 launch information!
As far as pre-orders go, tomorrow is pre-order day for participating carriers. AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint have both announced pre-orders for the early hours of March 17, so if you have been waiting, your chance to order the G6 is almost here. Now, launch days or in-store days are a bit different. (more…)
When the LG G6 goes on sale some time in the next week or two (not fully confirmed on dates yet), LG is going to hand you a free Google Home if you pre-order or buy the phone by April 30. That’s a free $129 gift for buying into what we already believe to be one of the best phones of the year.
All you’ll do once the LG G6 is on sale is take your your purchase information to the link below, fill out a form, and sit back to wait for your free Google Home to arrive. The promo is a limited time deal, so if you want the freebie, you’ll want to order an LG G6 within the first few weeks. (more…)
Over the weekend, LG’s official social news blog revealed the company’s plans surrounding the G4 and V10 Android Nougat updates. The post makes it sound like they weren’t initially sure that they would provide the update, but have now decided to move forward with it. (more…)
It’s already March and the US market has yet to see a major flagship launch from the larger Android OEMs. While a couple have been announced (LG G6 and HTC U Ultra), there are another couple scheduled for unveiling on March 29, those being the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ from Samsung. However, thanks to various leaks and reports, it’s possible many potential buyers have already made up their minds on which phone they’re leaning towards.
To sum up what we have so far, the LG G6 is a huge change up from last year’s G5, featuring water resistance and a 18:9 QHD display. Pricing and exact availability is not yet known, but expect it in April.
The Galaxy S8, at least from what we’ve seen, has a very interesting hardware design with hardly any bezel around its display. It also seems like a safe assumption that it will be water resistant and have a crazy-good camera, too.
As for the U Ultra from HTC, it was announced mid-January and we’re still waiting on an exact launch date for the US. For specs, it has a secondary ticker display, no water resistance, Snapdragon 821, no headphone jack, and a large 5.7″ QHD LCD display. Pricing is confirmed, though, unlocked starting at $749.
Let us know which way you’re leaning!
As I always say, a flagship phone is only as good as its default wallpaper (Editor’s Note: I don’t actually say that, but I should). In the case of the LG G6, it’s pretty darn good. As it turns out, LG took a couple of months to create the image, relying on physical mediums for its creation, not digital renders as you might expect. (more…)
