New LG G6 teaser contains the word "reliability"

LG has outed a new teaser for its upcoming G6 smartphone today. This one is rather pinkish-purple, and it follows in the footsteps of a pretty blue teaser from last week. As you can see, the word "reliability" is used this time around, along with the odd repetition of the word "check". Perhaps this is meant to reassure people that there's some kind of triple-check system in place during the phone's production. What this is for, though, is anyone's guess.

This isn't the first time that LG has focused on this aspect when talking about the G6. Back in January the company said it implemented...

Verizon launches new plan with unlimited data, offers iPhones and Pixel for free with trade-in for network switchers

If you bet on hell freezing over before Verizon once again offered a plan with unlimited data, well, you lost that bet. Amazingly, the carrier that just last year told its customers that they don't need unlimited data has now decided that maybe they do after all.

Let's get one thing clear first. The data traffic is technically unlimited, but after the first 22GB used each month per line you could be subjected to throttling. Then again, it's unlimited data. At Verizon. Oh, how things change in the mobile space.

Anyway, the plan is intuitively called Verizon Unlimited and it costs $80...

Get ready for Nokia smartphones to once again be sold in Europe. According to a new leak from Evan Blass (a.k.a. @evleaks), the brand will introduce three new devices at MWC on February 26, one of which is pretty surprising, to say the least.

Apple's OLED iPhone to fit a 2,700 mAh battery while being around the same size as the iPhone 7

The barrage of iPhone-related rumors continues today, bringing us news about the battery capacity of the much talked about model that will sport an OLED panel made by Samsung.

This handset, probably to be called iPhone 8, will have around 2,700 mAh battery capacity while its dimensions will be very similar to those of the iPhone 7 from last year. That's quite a feat of engineering when you consider that the iPhone 7 has a 1,960 mAh battery and a 4.7-inch screen, while the iPhone 8 is expected to pack a 5.2" to 5.8" display. The new device will have around 38% more battery capacity compared...

On the upper side is the company's logo while on the lower side we see "Barcelona 26.02.17", reminding us that...
