The LG G5 is finally here. The flagship smartphone will be launching in markets all across the world this week. LG has big hopes for its G5, which represents a new beginning for the company following the devastation of the G4 from last year.
We’re just days away from the LG G5 going on sale worldwide, and the company is pushing out television advertisements teasing the phone’s arrival. Last week, Jason Statham quietly appeared in a brief 30-second spot where the actor inserts a battery into the G5. Now he’s is back in another television ad disguised as he’s taking a picture or recording video with the LG CAM Plus module connected to the G5.
Fittingly sneaky, right? Hit the break to watch the ad.
LG posted a video to YouTube over the weekend, demonstrating all that the G5’s new UX 5.0 software can do.
Verizon is pushing out security updates to the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge, as well as the LG G3 and G4.
Verizon announced today that the LG K4 LTE, a low-end smartphone, is now available to buy on the carrier’s network.
Verizon and AT&T announced today that they’re now taking pre-orders for the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE with an April 1 release date.
As LG suddenly starts lurching forward with the release of their latest line of flagship devices that were announced at MWC 2016, like the LG G5 that is now dropping on April 1st, some other hardware is also starting to surface for buyers to place pre-orders. The latest to join the field are the LG 360 VR virtual reality headset and the LG 360 Cam spherical camera device that are now listed on the B&H Photo site. Read more
As of late, we’re seeing people put the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge through different durability tests. The world is just so curious to see whether or not Samsung’s new flagship can handle scenarios both usual and odd. On March 1, the Galaxy S7 Edge was put through a torture test and then faced a drop test against Apple’s iPhone 6S Plus. Shortly after, the phone was scratched with a knife and slammed by a hammer, a test that has been viewed by more than 3.5 million people. Somehow, despite the extreme degree of these tests, Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge seems to survive and remain usable.
The latest test we’re getting comes from Max Lee on YouTube. Lee is putting the Galaxy S7 in a washing machine, which is made by LG, to see how the IP68 rating holds up.
