At long last, our retail unit of the LG V30 arrived in the DL offices, so we started the process or reviewing it. We can’t say when exactly we’ll have it up, but it won’t take forever, we promise. In the meantime, we posted up an unboxing, tips and tricks, and be on the lookout next week for some more fun stuff!
Other than the V30 action, Essential finally got around to making the White option available for purchase(!), the launcher found on the Pixel 2 leaked and is available for download on a number of Android devices, and we learned Samsung may start to ship Bixby 2.0 out to supported devices next week. Oh, the joy.
