It has been a long time coming but the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the LG G3 are finally starting to get Google's Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. This is good news of course as it brings LG's 2014 flagship up to speed on the Android platform, and is actually likely to be the last major Android build that the handset gets.
We are spoilt for choice at the entry level of the smartphone market these days, so when an underwhelming handset arrives we are of course disappointed. It is easy to forget that these are handsets that cost little, so our disappointment should always be tempered by that. However, with this market thriving you really to not need to buy something cheap and nasty.
All the buzz is currently around LG's interesting and somewhat innovative G5 flagship, and rightly so. However, the Korean company has another device that fits the same billing as the G5, and it too is of flagship quality. The LG V10, the quirky and massive phablet that landed late last year is now receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow.
As well being an innovative device, the LG G5 is also an complete performance beast too and is showcasing the full might of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820. The previous Snapdragon 810 was a misstep for the chip manufacturer, but the 820 is a beast and it has powered the LG G5 to a record score on AnTuTu.
LG's G5 flagship landed at MWC with a pretty sizeable thud, bringing with it a modular design that lets users swap out the bottom of the handset to replace the battery, add microSD storage, or place an accessory on the G5.
LG launched the rather excellent and utterly unique G5 here at Mobile World Conference (MWC) in Barcelona, a handset with a modular design that lets you swap the bottom for accessories (and gain access to a removable battery and storage expansion).
LG has announced its new flagship smartphone, the G5, a handset that shows the South Korean company just can't sit still. Those familiar with last year's G4 and even the autumn launched V10 will know that the G5 is yet another radical departure from LG. The company is arguably the only one really changing up the look of its flagship output through each device.
We have never been big fans of the LG Smart Notice, a widget that has been included on most of the company's devices over the last few years. The widget offers updates and notifications regarding numerous services and on board functions, but it has never really worked as well as LG would want it to. If you own an LG G3, the Smart Notice is much more problematic than not working well, however.
LG is not expected to launch its G5 flagship at the Mobile World Conference next month, instead the upcoming handset is likely to make its debut through late spring and early summer. That said, the rumor wheel is just starting to turn and the image you see above is a rendered 3D image that takes into account the rumors regarding the G5 design so far.
LG has revealed a new smartphone that will be launched in Latin America and Commonwealth of Independent States countries, it is called the LG Ray.
