LG G4 review: Sharp and shooter

GSMArena team, 22 May 2015

Flagships get better with every generation but some of last year’s are as good as reborn. The LG G4 improves on the three best features of its predecessor: design, screen, the camera – and does so decisively. It adopts a G Flex curve, but makes...

LG AKA review: Eye contact

GSMArena team, 17 April, 2015

Phones can talk to you and even talk back to you. Every now and then, they might even say something funny. Your phone knows where you are and what you’re doing. Your phone is always watching. Now, look at your phone. It’ll look back...

LG G Watch R review: A full circle

GSMArena team, 01 December 2014

LG G Pad 10.1 review: Inching along

LG G Pad 10.1 review: Inching along

GSMArena team, 08 August 2014

The LG G Pad 10.1 tops LG’s recently revived tablet lineup but does so by virtue of sheer size rather than merit. The G Pad trio shares a Snapdragon 400 chipset with 1 GB of RAM and screen resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Not exactly the kind of specs...

LG G Pad 7.0 review: Back at it

LG G Pad 7.0 review: Back at it

GSMArena team, 04 August 2014

LG’s last attempt at tablets felt like something they did to just see if they still have it. No, there was nothing wrong with the G Pad 8.3 – except perhaps that an LTE version took quite a while. The LG G Pad 7.0 is obviously the economy package – but...

The LG G3 and Oppo Find 7 are the most recent embodiment of the latest and greatest that smartphones can offer, being the first (and still only) two devices that sport QHD screens. Whether or not a resolution of 2560 x 1440px on a 5.5-inch display...

LG G3 vs. HTC One (M8): Duel duo

LG G3 review: Dream catcher

LG G3 review: Dream catcher

GSMArena team, 06 June 2014

Late as usual but ever so strong. In an industry where timing is almost as important as quality, LG's highly anticipated G3 flagship makes landfall in the second half of 2014, a couple of months after the flagships of the other major players. Such a late...

LG G3 hands-on: First look

GSMArena team, 27 May 2014

The LG G2 is a living legend for its razor thin bezels but it's time to pass on the torch. The compactness spell worked once again and the LG G3 fits a massive 5.5" QHD screen in a body barely bigger than that of its competitors. Who needs phablets...

LG G Pro 2 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 3: Royal duel

GSMArena team, 19 March 2014

No other pair of droids will have you sitting on a fence like these two. Alright, a bold statement indeed. But if anything in it is to be taken literally, it’s the fence. In the end though, home turf for both, this isn’t about which side has the greener lawn...

GSMArena team, 04 March 2014

A generation older and a year wiser, LG will be looking to prove that it can learn from its mistakes and produce a device that can finally put a proper challenge for the phablet throne. The G Pro 2 certainly seems to have the right tools for the job...

GSMArena team, 13 November 2013

LG G Pad 8.3 review: Couch surfer

GSMArena team, 25 October 2013

GSMArena team, 8 October 2013

You know what they say – three is a crowd. On a second thought though, no one here’s got romance on their mind. The three-horse race has had its highs and lows, but it’s the playoffs and we got a front-row seat. Each phone here will look...
