[Video] Unboxing the Google Pixel


Google announced its new range of smartphones back on October 4th, the Pixel, and Pixel XL, featuring AMOLED displays, Snapdragon 821 processors, 4GB RAM, 32GB/128GB internal storage and what seems to be a very capable rear camera with a 12.3MP sensor. Besides spending a boatload of cash on the marketing, Google has organized a deal with UBreakIFix to make screen replacements as easy as possible, and Verizon has stated that it will issue updates for its locked Pixel handsets as and when Google pushes them. The Pixel handsets carry higher price tags than the Nexus phones of yesteryear, so what do you get for your money?

[Video] Unboxing the LG V20


With all the hoopla going on about the explosive Galaxy Note 7, it’s easy to forget that LG launched its latest flagship, the V20, just over a week ago. The successor to last year’s V10 has moved away from the V10’s textured exterior and instead appears to have taken a great deal of inspiration from the design of the modular-ish G5 that launched earlier this year. It isn’t necessarily a good move on LG’s part, as TalkAndroid’s very own Justin Herrick will mention while he unboxes the V20 and shows off its secondary ticker display in the video embedded below.  Read more

One thing you can guarantee when a new handset is launched is outlandish unboxing videos. While some will race to produce videos showing the Note 7 being tortured, or unboxed in extreme surroundings, Verizon has chosen to go the cutesy route with its unboxing video and its live doodle. Join us after the break for the embedded video. Read more
