LG's handheld 360-degree camera — the aptly named LG 360 CAM — will retail for $199, according to a preorder listing on B&H Photo, as well as in a leak from Sprint. The 360 CAM is part of the "friends" ecosystem that comes alongside the LG G5, which will be available starting April 1.
The camera is LG's answer to the personal 360-degree video game, which also will see an entry from Samsung...
In the world of smartphones, it's impossible to ignore the influence of Samsung. Since its explosion into Android with the launch of the Galaxy S2 globally, Samsung has firmly held on to the top spot in Android devices sold — and though the playing field has leveled off some in recent years the Korean manufacturer still has one of the most recognizable lines of phones out there today.

The LG G5 may not need a Hi-Fi module, but it's still a great option to have available.
Many of us are looking forward to seeing how well the Bang & Olufsen Hi-Fi audio module for the LG G5 performs. While not yet mainstream, high quality audio performance through the headphone jack is something phone manufacturers are starting to pay attention to, and plenty of us couldn't be happier....
HTC has announced that on April 12 it will officially unveil its latest smartphone which is rumored to be the HTC 10. This time around the company is doing an online-only unveiling, which it also did in 2015 for the HTC One A9. HTC has been teasing the phone with the hashtag "#powerof10" for the past few weeks, and now we finally know when we will see it officially.
It takes beautiful photos and has great hardware, but it doesn't quite deliver a stellar experience.
The Sony Xperia Z5 has a sleek look, designed with a metal frame and tempered fingerprint-resistant glass over the display. It delivers a decent display and a solid processor, with a battery that will definitely get you through the day. The real feature is the camera, and the...
U.S.-based InFocus is staking a claim to the new Android phone to run Marshmallow 6.0 out-of-the-box. InFocus ventured into smartphones a while ago in partnership with Foxconn, and the company entered the Indian market in middle of last year.
A newer, smaller, iPhone is here. And while it's tough to directly compare size and specs and price, it's still good to know what's going on.
The iPhone SE is upon us. And if we're going to compare it to what's available in the Android world, we need to rethink things a little bit. This isn't the top-shelf iPhone. But neither is it a bargain basement deal. It packs good iPhone specs in a...
The Galaxy S7 is a great melding together of the GS5 and GS6 — so is it time to upgrade?
Despite all of the advancements in the Galaxy S6 last year, millions who owned and loved their Galaxy S5 weren't super impressed by the new version.

AT&T has kicked off pre-orders for the LG G5, with the phone slated to launch April 1 in the U.S. You can pick up the handset for $23 per month over 30 months through AT&T's Next 24 plan, or purchase one for $688 outright. AT&T also offers a second handset for free, provided it is purchased on AT&T Next and activated on a new line.
You can give Verizon the boot, but keep your Verizon phone around for use on another carrier.
Verizon is one of the worst offenders when it comes to pre-installed apps and changes to the Galaxy S7's software, but if you so desire the phone will at least let you use another carrier's SIM. As has been the case for some time on its LTE phones, Verizon's versions of the Galaxy S7 and S7 edge are...
The GS6 edge+ is barely six months old, but with the recent arrival of the Galaxy S7 edge, you might be feeling the itch to upgrade.
The Galaxy S6 edge+, launched alongside the Note 5 in fall 2015, was something of an oddity in Samsung's Galaxy lineup — a halfway point between the regular GS6 edge and the newly arrived GS7 edge. Both devices boast big screens, great cameras and Samsung's...
Verizon is joining AT&T and T-Mobile in pushing out the first security update to the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge on its network. The carrier only notes bringing the phone up to date with the most recent security patch in its changelog.

T-Mobile has announced that it will begin accepting pre-orders of the LG G5 on March 29, two days before its official April 1 release. To entice customers to upgrade or make the switch, T-Mobile is also offering those who purchase before April 5 a free LG 360 Cam. This is on top of the existing battery bundle offer, that includes a spare battery and charging cradle for it.
