LG's X Power Might Have The Best Battery Life Of Any Smartphone You Can Buy In Australia

LG’s new $349 X Power has a surprising feature for a smartphone in its price range — what could possibly be the best smartphone battery on the Australian market.


What Is (Literally) The Hottest Smartphone Available Today?

With CPU and GPU vendors laser-focused on power consumption, modern gadgets such as notebooks and smartphones are getting cooler by the year. Mobiles in particular are still near-doubling in performance with each generation, without a matching leap in heat output. But how do today’s popular phones stack up against each other in pure numbers? Pass over that heat gun, would you?


The Next TV You Buy Will Be More High-Tech Than Ever, But Not How You Might Think

Ever since LCD TVs hit the scene about 10 years ago, we’ve seen small and incremental changes — better backlighting, higher quality panels. The last couple of years has been tumultuous, though, and 4K is now a thing (you’d be silly to buy a TV without it). With that done, TV makers are back to the minor iterative updates. But it’s 2016, and even those updates are pretty damn cool.


When It's Good Having A Removable Battery In Your Phone (And When It's Not)

If you want to buy a new phone in 2016, then apart from the price and the size of the screen, a phone’s battery — how long it lasts, how big it is, and whether you can swap it out — is probably going to be one of your chief concerns. Some phones have removable batteries, and some don’t. Here’s the difference, why it matters, and whether it’s worth putting a replaceable battery at the top of your wishlist.


How To Get The Most From LG's FH6 New X-Boom Freestyler Speaker

The LG FH6 Freestyler is a floor-standing, all-in-one stereo speaker system — it’s basically a modern day boombox. But it’s modern in more than just its looks — it can hook up three phones simultaneously over Bluetooth, it can supercharge your TV sound, and it’s one hell of a karaoke machine. Here are six things that you can try to turn the all-in-one system into a speaker that’s equally good at movies or music.


LG FH6 X-Boom Freestyler Bluetooth Speaker: Australian Review

Sure, you can buy small, portable, battery-powered Bluetooth speakers that you can take with you wherever you go. In a pinch, they’ll do a decent job for a small house party. But if you want to do things right, you want a big Bluetooth speaker. One that can draw enough power to dim the lights in your neighbourhood every time the bass kicks in. LG’s FH6 X-Boom Freestyler — yes, that’s its name — is a floor-standing speaker or horizontal boombox with a ridiculously large amount of audio power, and a bunch of LED lights on the front that you can set to flicker on and off in any colour you desire.


Five Things I Really Like About The LG G5

With the imminent launch of the Samsung Galaxy Note7, my time daily-driving LG’s G5 smartphone is (probably) coming to an end. When it was first announced at Mobile World Congress in February of this year, I called it “interesting” — maybe not the most refined device, but one of the most innovative. After a few months of using it, I’ve decided that despite some flaws, it’s a good phone, with a few things that make it great for some uses. Here are five things that I’ve enjoyed about the G5.


LG's V20 SmartPhone Will Be The First To Come With Android 7.0 Nougat

The LG V20 will be the first device to feature Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box, LG has confirmed. Due to hit shelves in a few month’s time, the phone will be “tuned to take advantage of many of the best features of Nougat”, LG says — including Vulkan-supported graphics for more immersive gaming and better battery performance with Doze.


LG And VW Are Working Together On Connected Cars

LG and Volkswagen have signed a memorandum of understanding to work together on building the smart cars of the future — cars that live their lives constantly connected to the internet, and connected to your smart home.


LG's New Ultrawide And Ultra HD Monitors Are Built For Gaming

LG today launched not one, but three brand-spanking new IT monitors from its Ultrawide and Ultra HD range. With gaming trends heading towards a ‘true virtual reality’ in terms of storyline and cinematic experience, LG has created monitors that enhance cinematic-feel and provide users with a wider-view and improved immersion.
