The V20 is now a year old, and is no longer LG’s top-of-the-line smartphone, but it’s still quite good. With plenty of power, including a Snapdragon 820 processor and 4GB of RAM, along with awesome camera and audio features, the V20 delivers in spades. What’s more: it’s the only remaining high-end phone  [Read More…]

Samsung can win the hearts of its Galaxy Note loyalists by bringing back the removable battery while giving us 6GB RAM, 256GB Memory and a 4K display

I wrote an editorial yesterday about how I am still using my Samsung Galaxy Note 7 and it still hasn’t exploded. The commenters in that post have inspired me to follow it up with another editorial. I no longer feel alone as a Note loyalist. Deep down, I have been a loyal Note fan since

In a year of sweeping changes to Samsung’s mobile lineup, one of the more controversial moves was the elimination of removable storage — the humble microSD slot — from the Galaxy S6 family of devices.
