Last month, we did a report on the walking of LG's product design and how it’s been hurting them in sales.

The LG G5 and Galaxy S7 look to be the culmination of a pair of trends I’ve been closely examining for a while in both LG and Samsung phones, a dramatic shift in UX design that is what I think will make 2016 so interesting. Whereas Samsung decided to simply fine-tune the experience they delivered with...

What Do You Think of the LG G5’s Modularity? Thoughtful Addition, or Gimmick?

The LG G5 now allows you to detach the bottom chin of the otherwise-unibody design in order to remove the battery and also expand the phone's functionality through its "friends"... little hardware modules that can add camera controls, better sound through a special DAC, a bigger battery and more. The feature also allows LG to...

In October we saw LG begin the release of Android 6.0, codenamed marshmallow, for its global version of the G4. Since then it was widely expected that a US release would come soon, despite  little being officially known.
