LG announced this week that the V20, its latest flagship and successor to the V10, will come to Canada. Moreover, it will be the first device to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat.
According to LG:
The LG V20 builds upon the premium and rich multimedia smartphone experience of last year's LG V10. It will be tuned to take advantage of many of the best features of Nougat, including Vulkan-supported graphics for more immersive gaming while also delivering better battery performance with Doze. Consumers will also enjoy new productivity features such as Direct Reply, which lets users respond quickly to text messages or update tasks using the notification interface.
We don't know a lot about the V20 at the moment, but Canadians can at least look forward to it coming out at all — we didn't get the oversized, unique V10 when it debuted last year (much to my chagrin). And with the LG G5 not knocking people's socks off (though I really liked it), I think LG could have a big hit on its hands with the V20. All will go down in September, when the V20 is announced.
VoLTE — or Voice over LTE — is the new standard for calling throughout the U.S., Canada, and parts of Europe. Not only does it facilitate much higher call quality between cell phones, but it allows devices to stay connected to LTE while on a call, improving data speeds for everyone.
Google has made the initial setup of a Pixel relatively painless these days, but that initial tutorial and then installation of all your old apps don't quite get everything set up perfectly. If you picked up a Pixel 6 or 6 Pro during the insane carrier deals on Cyber Monday or Black Friday, here's what to do with it first.
Android Auto is an absolute necessity when driving, regardless of whether you're headed out to the grocery store or for a long road trip. These cables will ensure your phone stays protected and charged, no matter what.
