[Update: New Beta] An early Android Pie beta leaks for the European LG G6

Korean smartphone brand LG has disappointingly been slow at providing major Android system upgrades when compared to its competitors. The early 2017 LG G6 launched with Android 7.0 Nougat on board, and while it did receive an update to Android 8.0 Oreo, it hasn't yet received Android 9 Pie. According to LG's Android Pie update...

LG made prototypes of the G6 with the Snapdragon 835. Here’s one of them.

Released back in March of 2017, the LG G6 was decently received by the smartphone community. It was a solid device that cost a fair amount less than other flagships of its generation such as the Samsung Galaxy S8. Beyond that, however, it didn't receive much attention. That is, it didn't receive much attention after...

LG’s Android Pie update roadmap includes the G7 for Q1 2019

Even the fiercest LG brand loyalists can't deny that software updates are not the company's forte. We've watched as the company has struggled to deliver major Android software updates (outside of Korea) for many of their devices in a timely manner. LG's UX software is heavily customized Android, which doesn't help in rolling out updates quickly...

Google Camera with Night Sight ported to the LG G6, V20, V30, and V35

At the tail end of last month, we announced a dedicated forum for all of the Google Camera ports we had been seeing from the generous developer community. The forum has only been open for a couple of weeks so it looks a bit bare right now, but activity is picking up and some LG...

How to check if your Android phone is powerful enough to run Fortnite Mobile

Fortnite, the massively popular free-to-play battle royale game, is coming soon to Android. Epic Games said the game would launch this summer but we now know that the game will likely launch as an exclusive on the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. It won't be on the Google Play Store (but possibly on Samsung Galaxy Apps) as...

Download the best Google Camera port for your Android device

One of the best developments in the Android community in recent years has been Google Camera ports. The Google Pixel's picture-taking ability is spectacular, even though the camera hardware may be better on other devices. A lot of the Google Pixel's photo magic comes from the Google Camera app. Features like HDR+ and portrait mode...

These smartphones will support Fortnite Mobile on Android

Fortnite Mobile on Android is a long-awaited upcoming release of an already massively popular game. Since launching on Apple iOS, users of Android smartphones and tablets have been wondering when Fortnite would launch on their devices too. The Android release has apparently been delayed as we recently reported that it will be launching as an...

LG G5 Android Oreo update is imminent in Korea as kernel sources are posted

The LG G5 was launched in early 2016 with a gimmicky modular concept and Android Marshmallow. It was updated to Android Nougat later that year and since then users have been waiting for Android Oreo. Back in May, the LG G6 started getting Oreo and the LG V20 and G5 were said to be close...

LG G7 ThinQ Mini Review: A Great Camera and Beautiful Design Still Can’t Help LG Stand Out

The LG G7 ThinQ is the company’s first big flagship phone for 2018. In theory, the G series is supposed to compete with the Samsung Galaxy S9, but LG hasn’t had much luck in recent years. The company even talked about slowing down their phone release cycle. Despite the doom and gloom, the LG G7...

Navigation Gestures updated with better Nav Bar hiding, App Launch action, Android P compatibility, & more

We launched our Navigation Gestures app a little over 3 weeks ago, and since our last update, we've been hard at work to address the overwhelming amount of feedback we've received. Our app, which was originally designed to be a simple gesture control app based on the Apple iPhone X's gestures, has since gained a lot of...

Android Oreo is finally rolling out for the Verizon LG G6 now. This makes it the first US carrier-based G6 to receive the update. The update to Android Oreo includes an updated version of LG's custom skin, along with all of the new features included in Android Oreo. This includes Picture-in-Picture mode, battery improvements, and...

LG is rebranding the LG G6 as the LG G6 ThinQ, for some reason

At Mobile World Congress 2018, LG announced a rather underwhelming revision of the LG V30, dubbed the LG V30S ThinQ. To call it a revision would be a stretch, actually. Internally, it was the same phone as the LG V30 with only minor differences. The greatest difference? The "ThinQ" moniker, which brought LG's set of AI...
