Even though Android Oreo will no longer be the most recent stable iteration of Google’s mobile platform in a couple of months, many compatible devices have yet to be upgraded to Android 8.0. Oreo has gradually been making its way to more devices over the past couple of months and now the T-Mobile LG G6 Oreo update has finally been released.
Some of you will be well aware that Google has already detailed Android P and has even launched a public beta program while many compatible high-end devices have yet to receive their Oreo update. The carrier-locked LG G6 is one of those devices and finally, there’s some respite for those who have been waiting for this update on Verizon. The country’s largest mobile carrier has now started rolling out the […]

There have been a lot of contradictory reports about the LG G7 recently. It was first believed that the successor to the LG G6 would be unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2018 in Barcelona as many would have expected. It was then reported that perhaps LG will launch it a month or two earlier. We then heard reports that LG had sent the device back to the drawing board so […]

Recently you might have heard that over in South Korea, LG has begun rolling out the Android 8.0 Oreo update for the LG V30, which is the second LG flagship phone for 2017.

The LG G6 is a good smartphone but if you didn’t want to pay top dollar for it, perhaps you’d like to take up Amazon on its offer. The online retail giant has added the LG G6 to its lineup of Prime Exclusive Phones. It’s selling the handset at a discount compared to the market but there’s a caveat. Customers will have to bear lockscreen ads. That’s why Amazon is […]

LG has been making good flagship smartphones for the past couple of years but they don’t appear to be capturing customers’ attention, or their wallets, at least not as much as LG would have hoped. The LG G6 was launched earlier this year and while it’s a bona fide flagship smartphone, it hasn’t done much to turn things around for LG’s mobile division.
It has been a few weeks since we started hearing rumors about the LG G6 Mini.

One of the things we’ve noticed that smartphone OEMs have been doing in the past few years is launching a flagship smartphone, followed by variants of the device, such as a more rugged version, a mini version, and so on. The LG G6 appears to be no exception as last we heard, an LG G6 Mini was rumored to be in the works.
According to a rumor from earlier this month, it was suggested that LG could have a variant of the LG G6 in the works. For those who are wondering about those rumors, it turns out that they were true as LG has since officially announced a new version of the LG G6 in the form of the LG G6+.
If you purchased the G6 from LG or are planning on doing so, the company wants you to know that it’s got your back. LG today announced that it’s extending the G6’s warranty by one full year.

It is not a secret that Apple’s iPhone has influenced a lot of smartphone makers when it comes to introducing features and design, and we guess the opposite can also be said where Apple does “copy” design and features found on other devices and software. However could Apple’s influence be so great to prompt smartphone makers to launch new variants?
Carriers have been selling the LG G6 in the United States for a couple of months now. What about those customers who want to buy this handset but don’t want to be tied to a carrier?
