LG's presence in the Android space has certainly seen better days. The company continues to kick out new smartphones year after year, but they never seem to grab an audience the same way devices from Samsung, Apple, and others do.
Following the relatively boring and modest LG V60, LG's second Android device of 2020 is expected to be quite different from past releases. What was expected to be the LG G9, the LG Velvet was teased by the company over the weekend — showcasing the phone's arc glass, unique rear camera modules, and more.
The teaser got a few of our AC forum members talking, with some of their initial thoughts being as follows:
Internet service providers are all different, yet all the same. Generally, the performance matches what you pay for and it is reliable. While all services have outages from time to time, but when your internet is dependent on cellular coverage a lot of question marks start forming. T-Mobile Home Internet is lives and dies by the network coverage, which makes its performance hit and miss.
Apple is finally updating the Apple TV 4K with a new chip and a desperately-needed remote upgrade, but it's too pricey, and too late compared to the Chromecast with Google TV. Google TV may still have a few bugs, but Apple's new box is way too expensive to put up a good fight.
It can be tough to find a great case for a new phone, especially one with a unique and wonderful design like the LG Velvet. But thankfully, there are a lot of solid choices out there and these are our favorites to keep your LG Velvet safe from when life happens.
