LG unveils the G6, swapping modularity for new screen dimensions and waterproofing  

 The modular G5 was a novel device, but novelty alone doesn’t sell phones. So LG went back to the drawing board for its followup, and the result is, on a whole, a fairly straightforward flagship smartphone. The LG G6 is a good looking handset, but not an especially remarkable one, with design language that brings to mind fellow flagships like the Galaxy S7. The company’s big… Read More

Is the Nokia 3310 the perfect backup phone?  

Most of us keep our smartphones on us at all times. A connection to the rest of the world, from social media, to staying in touch directly with friends and family, and even work, our smartphones have become an incredibly important part of our lives. Keeping them functional is also important, because no one wants a $600 paperweight. But, accidents happen, and, for whatever reason, getting that smartphone fixed or replaced might not be the easiest thing to do, or even possible. While insurance cer

Here's the three new Nokia Android phones you've been waiting for  

About five years too late, Nokia has finally entered the Android market. It's probably not quite what you were expecting: the phones really come from Nokia's new Finnish owner, HMD Global. But hey, they're Nokia phones running Android, and they look half-decent, so who are we to complain? Things get better when you hear about the design decisions HMD has been making. Just a few small companies (and Motorola) have done in the past, HMD is shipping all three phones with pure Android, no gimmicks,

While you can still download the app, it’s been stagnant for a few years. But LG implemented a Frontback feature into the new G6 called “Match Shot.” The big new feature of LG’s phone is the taller display. The… Read More

 Bigger screens don’t cut it anymore. Now, we need taller screens. I’ve been playing with the LG G6 for the past 24 hours. In many ways, it is just another phone. But the company is trying something new with a 2:1 aspect ratio display — essentially a normal 16:9 display that can fit a few extra lines of text at the top and bottom. And it makes a big difference. I’ve… Read More

LG officially unveils G6 flagship
