And you, pull-up iOS Control Center, how's that for a handy toggle access! Those hidden interface panels where phone makers place shortcuts for quick access to connectivity toggles, and host app, call or message notifications, are one of the more diverse interface segments that can make or brake the respective user experience. From background to layout, from iconography to notification access - each and every one of the major phone brands approaches the notification and toggle shades' visuals in a different manner, and provides different ways to access them...

Samsung vs lg
The moon was in the seventh house, Jupiter aligned with Mars, the groundhog saw his shadow, and somehow we found ourselves with LG and Samsung’s very best TVs in our testing lab, sitting right next to each other, just begging to battle it out. How could we resist?LG’s relentless pursuit to perfect OLED TV technology has culminated in the EG9600, a gorgeous, curved 4K UHD OLED TV wielding perfect black levels, brilliant color, and intense brightness as its weapons. Meanwhile, Samsung, which shelved OLED to redefine what was possible with LCD TV technology, has produced the Js9500 SUHD TV, brandishing quantum dots for billions more colors, and a full array local dimming (FALD) LED backlight system that promises class-leading black levels, contrast, and color.With so many acronyms, how could this not be an epic battle for the ages?I know what you’re thinking: Isn’t comparing two completely different display technologies unfair?

LG’s V series have always been the South Korean phone-maker’s technical best, often outdoing its more popular G series in specs and capabilities. Last year’s V20 had a secondary screen, and a Quad digital-to-analog converter (DAC) for higher quality music playback. This year’s LG V30 has dropped the second screen, but it offers far more screen real-estate.So that brings us to the real question: How does LG’s newest contender match up to its predecessor?

The Samsung Galaxy Note 8 is one of the biggest and most powerful smartphones we’ve ever seen. It wraps cutting edge specs in a seductively stylish body, but how does it measure up against one of our favorite phones – the LG G6? Despite good reviews, following the Mobile World Congress unveiling back in February, the G6 has not met sales expectations. Does that mean you should pick the Note 8? We pitted Samsung Galaxy Note 8 vs. LG G6 to find out.Samsung is looking to get the Note series back on track and wash away the bitter, charred taste of its explosive Note 7 disaster.

The Moto Z2 Force , the modular successor to last year’s Moto Z Force, is a powerhouse of a smartphone. It features a 5.5-inch QHD (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) Super AMOLED screen with shatter-resistant glass, Qualcomm’s cutting-edge Snapdragon 835 processor, and a 12MP dual-sensor camera that mimics the look and feel of high-end DSLRs.But the competition hasn’t been slacking. Earlier this year, LG hit one out of the park with the LG G6, the lauded followup to the G5. The G6 features a powerful processor that’s paired with 4GB of RAM, a capable pair of cameras, and an edge-to-edge screen that’s bright, colorful, and incredibly vibrant. Needless to say, the competition is fiercer than ever.So how do the Moto Z2 Force and the LG G6 compare? Below, we’ve pitted the two against one another to see which is the superior device.

After months of rumors and speculation, HTC has finally made its new flagship official. It’s called the U11, and rather than simply a sleeker, faster version of last year’s HTC 10, the U11 boasts a more distinctive and bold design, as well as a few quirky features that set it apart from the competition.Among that competition is LG’s G6, which we praised as the best Android smartphone on the market when it launched in April. The release of the Samsung Galaxy S8 in subsequent weeks has complicated that assessment a bit, however, the fact remains that LG’s latest offering is still one of the finest on the market, with a cohesive blend of premium hardware, slick software, and a processor that’s plenty powerful.With that in mind, we’ve put together a spec comparison to illustrate how HTC’s best matches up against the LG G6.

Smartwatches bearing Google's new Android Wear operating system are on the horizon. There are three wrist-worn devices that we know of so far: the square-shaped Samsung Gear Live and LG G Watch , and the round-faced Motorola Moto 360 . All three are set to touch down this summer, with LG and Samsung's efforts arriving in stores on July 7, and Motorola's watch swooping in at some vague later date. While Samsung and LG have been forthcoming about the watches' hardware particulars -- you can even preorder both devices now on the Google Play Store -- Motorola has been relatively mute. We do know that all three will pair with any device running Android 4.3 and above, and that all have exchangeable straps to suit your style. Until we hear more about the Moto 360, in-depth comparisons will have to wait. In the meantime, you can find the specs that … [Read more...] about Samsung Gear Live vs. LG G Watch vs. Moto 360 specs: Comparing the watches of Android Wear
Hot off the presses is the Galaxy Note 8, Samsung’s latest flagship phone, and it sports a dual camera system—a first for Samsung.

And in a first for any smartphone, both lenses have optical image stabilization, or OIS.The G6, meanwhile, features a fairly typical main camera paired with a super wide lens.
