LG takes portable speaker to new heights with the levitating PJ9

Levitating speakers ain’t new but LG has to be the first major brand to be bringing one to the market. While LG has never been one to shy away from producing speakers in controversial design (like the MUSICflow Sound360 which is shaped like a flask), the PJ9 takes things up a notch with its levitating effects. Besides providing 360 audio with its omnidirectional speaker, the PJ9 also has deep bass from the subwoofer that is embedded in its levitation station. It has a pretty impressive 10 hour battery life for its size and…

LG G5 Review

LG G5 Review

Another year, another LG flagship phone. I reviewed the LG G4 around the same time last year and was left impressed by how much Android phones (especially the G4) have improved over the years. Till today, the G4 is still regarded as one of the best Android phone in the market. This year, LG announced the G5 with much fanfare at the Mobile World Congress for a good reason: the mobile industry hasn’t seen a phone quite like the G5 for a long time. Besides the usual sleek body and powerful…

LG G4 Review

LG G4 Review

The last time i flirted seriously with Android was in 2008 when I re-contracted to a HTC Dream. It was the first smartphone powered by the Android OS and was considered way better than the yet to be released iPhone due to its slide out keyboard (lol). I remember the screen to be terrible and the lag when switching between apps felt like eternity. 7 years and endless iterations of Android later, I finally get the chance to seriously flirt again with Android as apparently the seven-year itch is real and i’m supposed to…
