While many have accepted the fact that phones with QWERTY keyboards are basically dead, there are still a few folks out there who would love to see them return to the mainstream. The last time we talked about a QWERTY keyboard was the DROID 5, a device we never quite saw come to fruition from Motorola, even though evidence pointed to its existence. Regardless of that, a new QWERTY-toting device looks to be making its way to T-Mobile from LG, a device named the F3Q. (more…)
The LG G2 for AT&T is set to receive an update starting today that brings it up to build D80010o. The update appears to be minor at just 57MB and only including a couple of bug fixes, along with the necessary changes to make it Isis ready. Other than that, the changelog claims that it introduces an “Enhanced Google Map” and Ready2Go enhancements.
It is certainly not Android 4.4, or even Android 4.3 for that matter. (more…)
The LG G2, easily one of the best phones of 2013 (our review), is in our possession and ready to be handed over to one of you. That’s right, it’s LG G2 contest time! The variant we have up for grabs today works on AT&T’s network, and is for the most part identical to the international variant, or in other words, the way LG envisioned the device. That means you don’t get the odd adjustment to the back buttons that Verizon tossed on to their variant, nor do you get wireless charging. But the rest of it is pure awesome.
We’re talking the 5.2-inch FHD LCD, that incredible soft touch when swiping around it, features like KnockOn, an amazing multi-point autofocus camera, and battery life for days. If it weren’t for the existence of phones like the Nexus 5 and Moto X, this might be topping our list of phones for the year. It really is that good.
So who wants it? (more…)
The Cyber Monday deals aren’t over just yet, with Newegg selling LG’s new G Pad 8.3 flagship tablet for as little as
$279 $249. This tablet, the first for LG since that terrible 3D thing they did a few years back, is normally priced at $349. I’d call that a heck of a deal, especially for a tablet that is a lot like the LG G2, only in tablet form. (more…)
The LG G2 in white has finally landed on Verizon’s virtual online store shelves. The device is also here at an introductory/Cyber Monday price of FREE on new 2-year contract. We were expecting this variant of LG’s new flagship to arrive much sooner, but Big Red has gone with a white theme for this mega-holiday shopping weekend, and a white G2 certainly fits right in.

Verizon customers that are into the rooting and custom ROM game, that happen to rock an LG G2, should know that your vanilla AOSP dreams have been answered in the form of Gummy ROM. While this ROM isn’t completely stock, as a few tweaks have been made and additional features have been installed, this is essentially a clean build of Android 4.4 running on the device. (more…)
Just last week, we got a good look at the ”Self Healing” backside on the G Flex from LG, but given the video was straight from the manufacturer, it hardly ever relates to real world usage. Our buddy MKBHD got his hands on the new device from LG and decided to test out the self healing functionality himself. With the help of some normal keys and even a pocket knife, we can see just what the G Flex is made of. (more…)
