MWC – LG V60 ThinQ Images leak out

Although LG is missing the big Barcelona bash this year, there’s still going to a flagship launch. It’s the V60, and leaks from the ever-brilliant @evleaks show four rear cameras… The quad-camera arrangement seems to be similar to the Samsung Galaxy S10, and it seems to be pushing …

MWC – LG pulls out. ZTE still to appear.

The massive mobile show that is Mobile World Congress is now just days away. This year it kicks off on February 24th, with over 109,000 attendees and the best of the mobile industry displaying their latest phones, gadgets and accessories. Trouble is, two big companies have already cancelled. …

Two-screen LG V60 ThinQ smartphone coming to IFA 2019

Announcing your next phone before it’s announced? Well, sounds a bit crazy but that’s what LG have one. A teaser trailer of a new LG phone launching in September at IFA shows what initially could be a shark-fin camera, an opening smartphone, a dual-screen phone or a phone …

MWC – LG brings us a foldable too.

Yesterday we brought you news of the LG V50, which is a new 5G phone being picked up by EE in the UK and Sprint in the USA. It’s got a 6.4″ QHD+ OLED FullVision Display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio and DTS:X sound technology. It’s powered by a …

MWC – The LG G8 and LG G8s

Last year things got a bit “weird” with the LG G7 here in Barcelona. It appeared, but apparently wasn’t mean to appear, and then things got a bit strange. This year it seems a little better. There’s not one G8, but two. Both have the Thin Q name …

MWC – EE confirmed to range LG V50

In a busy day for the mobile industry, EE have just confirmed the LG V50 that was just announced in Barcelona will be coming to their 5G network. In the USA you’ll be seeing it on Sprint. With a 6.4″ display, the V50 will be a great phone …

Fancy an LG G5? Now less than £130

I’m a free man right now. I’m using a really old phone (because this happened to my lovely Huawei) and, after typing the words “I’d like to leave, please can you issue my PAC code” no less than 6 times into an online chat with Vodafone, I’m ready …

LG G7 ThinQ coming to O2

The LG G7 ThinQ was recently announced, and O2 have confirmed that they will exclusively stock the ‘Morroccan Blue’ colour in the next few weeks. The G7 ThinQ is the latest flagship from LG and offers some great specs that are overlooked when compared to phones like the …

The LG G7 ThinQ is finally launched

Well, where do I start here? We saw the LG G7 ThinQ back in February at Mobile World Congress. It was all a bit weird, because they displayed it around the back of the stand, supposedly to invite-only people, but then didn’t stop said people taking lots of …

LG G7 ThinQ – DTS:X 3D Surround Sound and added “Boom”!

Most leaked handset in history? Yep, it’s certainly getting that way. Over the weekend we found more details of the battery and screen on the LG G7, now we’re getting more on the audio side of things. We saw the thing in Barcelona in February but then there …

More details of the LG G7 emerge

Just in case you missed it, the LG G7 made a rather unscheduled appearance at the Mobile World Congress earlier this year. There was rumours that it wasn’t the finished product, but then it became clear that it actually was. Very strange. Now we’re just days away from …

The LG G7 to be announced next month, with added ThinQ

Story so far then, and during the big mobile madness that is “Mobile World Congress”, some silly sausage put the upcoming LG G7 on the LG stand. It was sneaked behind the stand and presumably they thought that the invited guests wouldn’t be taking photos of the thing. …

Wait a minute, that might be the LG G7 after all

During Mobile World Congress the LG G7 appeared on the LG stand in Barcelona. After this we heard that it was actually an early iteration of the device, and another device would probably take the LG G7 name. However, Evan Blass (leaker extraordinaire) has now changed his mind …

#MWC18 – LG G7 somehow appears on their stand

You’ve really got to wonder how this happened. Was there a conversation with LG staff before the event? “Hey guys, shall we put this un-released LG G7 on show?” “Yeah, that’s a great idea. We’ve not had the launch event yet but we can get a display space …

#MWC18 – Is it the LG G7? No, but we do get an LG V30S

One thing we won’t be seeing here in Barcelona (and yes, I’ve made it!) is the all-new LG G7. I’ve owned quite a few LG handsets – the G6 is a big favourite of mine and I held onto the LG G4 for absolutely ages. Loved that. The …

#MWC18 – LG refresh the K10 and K8

Well, this is a bit weird. We’re getting told what’ll get launched before they’re actually… launched. Either way, LG have emailed in to tell us about a couple of lower-end phones which will be making an appearance at Mobile World Congress. They say that these have some “premium …

IFA – The LG V30, hands on

We’ve managed to get our hands on with the newly-announced LG V30. It’s a big launch here at IFA for the company, but we’re still not exactly sure whether it’ll be coming to the UK. The closest we have is “key European markets”. We’re hoping.. Anyhow, here’s it’s …

LG V30 Arrives. Get all the details.

How does a phone with a 6″ screen sound? How about one with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 CPU and 4GB of RAM? What about the 64GB of storage with a microSD slot? Sounding promising? Welcome, then, the new LG V30, announced just this morning. It’s one that has …

LG V30 pictured

The smartphone manufacturer has been keen to let us know certain bits of information about their upcoming V30 device. It’s going to have an F1.6 aperture camera with a glass lens. The dual camera setup also gets laser detection autofocus, optical image stabilization and electronic image stabilization too. …

LG V30 pushes smartphone cameras

LG announced today that their upcoming LG V30 will incorporate an F1.6 aperture camera and glass lens in the dual camera specification. The new specification means that the lens is larger and clearer, which means the cameras can let in 25% more light than a traditional smartphone camera lens. …

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 …

LG G6+ Launched, plus goodies for existing G6 users

Like the LG G6 yeah? Heard about the new version? Well, it’s just been announced.There’s 128GB in this version and it comes with premium B&O PLAY headphones for the on-board 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC. They’ve also chucked in wireless charging in some countries. It’ll be called the LG G6+ and …

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. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6vMLTdgRB8Y LG spoke about the “ideal smartphone” and …

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

When we were in Barcelona ogling over the LG G5, we were contacted by most of the usual networks to say that they were ranging it. However… we noticed someone who wasn’t coming to the LG party. Three. We got in touch, and they told us that they …

UK carrier O2 has announced they are going to exclusively carry the new LG Stylus 2, which is the first smartphone with DAB radio support*, meaning you’ll be able to enjoy your favorite radio stations without using your data allowance. The device is available right now on O2 …

A “More Playful” interface for your LG G5

I don’t know about you, but the one thing I want more than anything is a playful interface. I mean, an interface alone is great, but let’s make it a playful one eh? Let’s make it fun. Let’s make it lively, cheerful, impish and a little bit frisky …
