The G6 was the big news at Mobile World Congress, and surely you've already heard all about its headline features: the small bezels, the 18:9 aspect ratio screen, the sealed battery. But now that we've spent a little more time with the G6, we've found a few things that you might not know about. While anyone who's used a previous LG phone will immediately recognize some of the G6's finer features--like knock-to-wake and the ability to add five lock screen shortcuts--LG has added a few features that make the G6 unique. You're going to hear a lot about the G6's camera, and rightfully so. With a pair of 13MP sensors, optical image stabilization, and a 125-degree wide-angle lens, it's going to challenge the Pixel and the Galaxy S7 for picture-taking superiority.
Everything old is new again when it comes to the iPhone line. With the announcement of a new four-inch iPhone, called the iPhone SE, Apple has brought back the screen size that users bid farewell to a couple of years ago. I had a few moments with the phone at Apple's launch event in Cupertino, Calif., and got to re-familiarize myself with the smaller screen. If I had to sum up the iPhone SE in one sentence it would be this: This is an iPhone 6S in the body of an iPhone 5S. There probably won't be a lot of people who switch to the SE from a 6S or 6S Plus, though, unless they really miss the smaller screen.
It's been a decade since the first iPhone was introduced, so today's big announcement from Apple marks the occasion with an'X.' However, the mobile scene has changed a lot since 2007, with rival companies like Samsung, LG and HTC releasing devices that can compete with the iPhone on power, features and design. We've sized up the new iPhone X against some of the more outstanding handsets out there, including a few with edge-to-edge screens like the LG V30. See how the X's specs compare now, and check back later this month to see how it holds up in our full review. Follow all the latest news from Apple's iPhone event here!
TOKYO--Apple Inc. has decided to adopt a flexible display for one model of the new iPhone coming out this year and has ordered sufficient components to enable mass production, people familiar with the matter said. Apple had been studying flexible organic light-emitting diode or OLED screens similar to those used by rival Samsung Electronics Co. and had asked suppliers for prototypes, The Wall Street Journal reported in November.
