New LG and Windows 10 Mobile handsets on their way

Perhaps not the most obvious connection, but new phones are new phones right? It has been rumoured for a few weeks that a ‘mini’ LG G6 is in the works, I put this in inverted commas because the device is hardly ‘mini’: it is thought to have a …

A Mobile Love Story – Comparing the Galaxy S8 and the LG G6

Smartphone fidelity has not been my strong point lately. In the last 2 years I’ve had got through 6 phones. However, I am generally monogamous, sticking to one at any one time…but I seemed to be now, for the first time, genuinely torn between two different devices. Do …

Get the LG G6 with giffgaff a week before release

Look at me. I’ve got me an LG G6. Aren’t I all big and clever? I get phones first. I’m so amazing. Wait though… it’s not like that at all. In fact, I get phones on loan for a few days or a couple of weeks, then I …

LG G6 – First Look

At MWC 2017 Coolsmartpone was given early access to a First Look LG G6. LG’s new flagship is quite a looker, so here is a bit of an in-depth hands on with one of the most anticipated flagships of 2017. We should make it clear at this point: …

MWC – The LG G6 is go!

Well, here it is. The LG G6. Last year I was here to see the modular G5 and all the additional toys getting shown off, but this year the idea of plug-in peripherals seems to have taken a back seat. LG spoke about the “ideal smartphone” and told …

MWC – LG G6 Launch Liveblog and livestream

We’ve heard the rumours and seen all the leaked shots, now it’s time for the launch itself. We’re expecting a new 18:9 screen, a bigger battery, faster CPU and no more modular business. Rumours of rounded corners on the screen and a flattened rear with no camera hump …

So, the LG G6 just leaked

Trusting leaks can be a dangerous game, but when it’s long-time leaker @evleaks, we do listen. He’s just posted this picture on his Twitter feed, purportedly of the incoming LG G6, which we’ll be able to get our hands on this coming Sunday when it’ll be launched officially. …

LG at MWC 2017 – Like a G6, Like a G6

If LG don’t use this song as part of their G6 launch I will be properly upset. The phone will be introduced Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona, Spain on February 26th. It’s not long to wait, but you can at least have a look at their new …

More LG G6 details emerge – focus on audio

We already know that one of the big announcements that will be made at MWC in a few weeks’ time will be the LG G6.  The G5, launched a year ago, was initially lauded for its novel module design, but that praise was short-lived and the phone sold …

LG Profits fall again. That G5 wasn’t a monster hit

Somebody recently asked what my main phone was. To be honest I have two – an iPhone 6s and an LG G5. The Android handset tends to win in the daily battle for my trouser pocket, and even though I’ve not made any use of the modular G5 …

The modular phone is dead.. for LG

We can talk about what comes after the smartphone until the thing is actually released. However the long touted next step towards the future has died a death before it even got started. According to the Electronic Times, LG is abandoning its modular approach that it launched with …

LG V20 launches for audiophile

You’d be forgotten for thinking that there were no tech items last week apart from the over-priced, under-specced, headphone-less phone that is Apple’s latest offering.  Far more exciting (to me at least!), was another announcement last week.  It was well known that the LG v20 was going to …

LG V20 to be first Nougat phone

  Last year LG released the V10.  It is an unusual and quite novel phone that never officially made it to the UK, so coverage over here was quite limited.  The V10 was a whopper – a 5.7″ screen with a smaller 0.2″ secondary screen above (see the …

Three change their mind – The LG G5 arrives
