Android top in the US but not Europe; Galaxy S6 sales boost Samsung

We've been wondering if the good reviews of Samsung's new flagship, the Galaxy S6 will translate to sales to help boost the previous smartphone champs. The number (at least from Kantar) are in, and it looks like they have indeed helped the OEM regain top spot in the US, becoming the third best-selling smartphone in the country, just after the iPhone 6 and Samsung's previous flagship, the Galaxy S5. Android has also continued to regain the top spot in the US when it comes to sales, but in Europe's big five, it's still a no go.

LG Tribute 2 and Volt 2 now available on Boost Mobile

New and updated versions of some of LG's smartphone lines are now available, bringing faster processors, hopefully faster LTE speeds, and improved features. Both the LG Tribute 2 and Volt 2, the second generation device of their respective lines, are now available on Boost Mobile, a prepaid carrier available in the US. Both devices will be carrying enhanced LTE which means faster web-browsing and streaming of your favorite video and music services.

LG Chem intros new Hexagon battery for smartwatches

After South Korean giant Samsung announcing that it's working on a new battery technology with double capacity, here comes its rival LG also with a new battery technology. This time though, LG Chem's offering is a smaller battery that is ideal to be used on future smartwatches. This is LG's entry into the relatively new industry of small batteries for wearables.

LG rolls outs camera-centric, sound-powered Band Play mid-range phone

After the hype about the LG G4 has died down, the South Korean giant has announced a new smartphone but this time, for the mid-range category. The LG Band Play is a new model that is said to be camera and sound focused. This means the cameras are powerful and phone offers an impressive audio listening experience. Not that there are no other camera- and sound-centric smartphones today but LG has reinforced this phone with more powerful cameras and lens and speakers for a higher camera and audio quality.

LG reportedly releasing G4 Pro later this year

Despite earlier rumors that LG will discontinue their G Pro line because it may be seen as redundant to the flagships released after it, it seems that the rumor mill is alive once again, saying otherwise. A Russian website (and apparently, a Chinese one too) is saying that the LG G4 Pro will still be coming out later this year, and that the specs will put the current LG G4 flagship to shame.

LG announces line-up of new projectors for 2015

LG Electronics has diversified their portfolio when it comes to releasing electronic products, from home appliances to smartphones and tablets. But when you think of projectors, you don't automatically think of LG. However, for the past few years, they have actually been releasing some pretty good models for both home and business use. They have recently unveiled their new projectors for 2015, and it contains a powerhouse LED projector with Smart TV, and three minibeam projectors that are also pretty neat and useful.

LG G4 plagued by touchscreen issues for some users

When you release your new flagship, the last thing that you'd want is for users to complain en masse about a certain feature or rather, a non-working feature. That is the problem now facing LG and its brand new G4, which has received generally positive reviews when it first came out. However, it seems that a number of users are now facing a touchscreen bug which has led to a forum on XDA where users can submit their complaints, and hopefully, this will reach LG as well.

Researchers able to hack into Samsung, LG smartwatches

Smartwatches may not be as ubiquitous now as smartphones and tablets, but they are already slowly seeping their way into our digital consciousness. Most users are secure in the knowledge that the information and data that gets transmitted from their smartphones to their wearables are encrypted and secure. Well, you might rethink that, particularly if you're using an LG and Samsung smartwatch, as a group of researchers were able to hack into it as part of their study and experiment on encryption.
