It costs less off-contract than the one without LTE. Wait, what?
It’s only been a few months since the LG G Pad 8.3 was released, and now US buyers will be able to get their hands on a LTE-enabled version, so long as you’re happy with Verizon. When we reviewed the G Pad 8.3 back in November we came away impressed by LG’s efforts. It’s a thin and sturdy tablet [Read More...]

As the smartphone world continues exploding, many users still fear the extra fees that data connected devices can bring. We mentioned last December that a great solution for this would be family data plans, and Big Red even mentioned the possibilities of seeing them in 2012.

Our LG Spectrum review comes at an interesting time for both the smartphone manufacturer as well the carrier on which it resides, Verizon. On one hand you have LG, which has brought us some excellent high-end Android smartphones as well as a surprising low-ender in the Optimus line. And then you have Verizon, whose 4G LTE network is starting to mature at the ripe old age of 1 but at the [Read More...]
