By now, its pretty much a fact that the Galaxy Note 7’s chances of being the best selling phablet of the year are up in flames. So if you were looking for a big phablet, the LG V20 should now be your obvious choice if it wasn’t already. LG V20 has gone live in South Korea a few weeks ago but it still not available elsewhere yet. This is the same problem LG had with the G5. By the time their devices are ready for sale the hype has already dies down. I wonder how much it would hurt them to announce the device when it’s almost for sale.
Well anyways, the pricing details for the LG V20 seem to have leaked regardless. Continue reading “Get an Unlocked LG V20 for $799.99 and a free G pad tablet”
Google announced the first truly made by Google smartphones finally at the highly speculated event in San Fransisco. The phone packs some serious hardware.
However, is this enough to shake up the high branches of the smartphone market and steal away some potential buyers from Samsung and LG, which have some pretty strong offerings in that niche, namely the Galaxy Note 7 and the LG V20?

Android 7.0 Nougat has been rolling out to Nexus 5X and 6P for a while now and many have been enjoying the latest android but Google held the update back for a little while to work out a few battery optimization issues as was reported by Vodafone Australia.
Google posted the OTA and Factory Images of Android 7.0 Nougat on Thursday night, finally giving Nexus 6P owners access to the new software.
This version has build number NRD90U and contains the September security update.
On a related note, the Nexus 2016 handsets dubbed “Google Pixel” and “Google Pixel XL” are gearing up for launch, most probably on the 4th of October. A credible source recently noted that these smartphones will run Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box.
Breaking the tradition, Google allowed LG to steal the limelight. In fact, the recently released LG V20 is the first smartphone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 is just a month old and LG just unveiled its latest flagship the V20 while the Note 7 is still making headlines (for unfortunate reasons). And then the LG V20 has a huge 5.7 inch display. It seems like LG is screaming for a comparison with the Note 7 or its just us justifying our need to compare the two Korean rivals.
LG just announced the V20, a successor to last year’s V10 smartphone. In 2015, the V10 stood out for its unique, sturdy design, a great camera, and audiophile-grade music playback. LG has retained two of those strengths and introduced others for the sequel.
When LG unveiled its V10 last year, it was… it was a little weird. With a beefy body, a double-selfie camera and a tiny second screen, the V10 was the result of LG being a little weird. But the phone did surprisingly well around here. Then the G5 happened. Everybody flocked towards the shiny new S7 / edge from Samsung and about a week ago, that’s what I’d have said would happened to the V20. But then the Note 7 started exploding all over.
Perhaps the Note 7 recall is why South Korea’s LG Electronics Inc, reeling from continued losses from its smartphone business, unveiled its new V20 premium smartphone on Wednesday, hoping for a pick-up on Samsung’s misfortunes and boost sales in the second half even though its exactly the day when the iPhone 7 is coming out.
Last week was an IFA week and amidst all the buzz and excitement from Berlin quite a few exciting things happened for the android world since many android OEMs take stage at IFA to showcase what they have coming in the future. Although, not everything exciting happened only at IFA, some of those happened in closed rooms perhaps behind a desk or something, and some haven’t yet happened but the leaks have us pumped.
