LG Bootloop Lawsuit Adds Nexus 5X, and the LG G5 and LG V20 to the Case

LG's bootloop issue with multiple smartphones they have manufactured is not a secret around here. We saw this issue crop up with the LG G4 and then it slowly made its way to the LG V10 and Nexus 5X as well. At first, it was assumed that the issue stemmed from some sort of problem...

Excessive Lag Time Between Device Announcement and Release is Killing Excitement

We've talked at length about how overhyping a product can create unreachable expectations, and it goes without saying that a complete lack of hype can be just as disastrous. However, neither is as damaging as hyping up a product and then letting that excitement die off before launch. People can't maintain excitement about a product that they were...

Alleged LG G6 Render Shows a Similar Design to the LG G5

Report: LG Plans to Make LG G6 Available Earlier to Avoid Competition

LG failed to excite consumers with the LG G5 despite the massive push made towards (pseudo-)modularity. Furthermore, the LG V20 failed to shoulder the responsibility of carrying LG this fiscal year. Despite the failure of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7, LG has thus far not been able to effectively capitalize on Samsung's misfortunes. With the new year approaching, however, LG...
