    The LG G2 mini might be called mini, but for many it is anything but when you look at the specs. That's okay though, because surprisingly, as if it was a tardis, the phone doesn't actually feel that big in the hand. That's mainly because of the complete...

    LG G Flex review

    By 12 February 2014

    LG is the company of bendy screens, epitomised by the LG G Flex smartphone. While Samsung is pursuing the same goal, it is not quite at the same level. Honestly have very mixed feelings about the whole flexible screen thing. In TVs we're quite sure curved...

    LG G Pad 8.3: Hands-on pictures with the Nexus 7 challenger

    By 8 November 2013

    LG's G Pad 8.3 is a smart idea for a tablet. We think this is about the right sort of size for a tablet, not as clunky as a 10-or-more-inch model, but a bit more screen real estate than a 7-inch tablet. From our, so far, limited time with the G Pad -...
