A year is a long time in technology, and reading back through the reviews of LG's Optimus 4X HD, it's clear to see a company in transition. Spool forward a few months, and the Optimus G and Nexus 4 has pushed the Korean giant back into the ascendancy. Still, we need to grapple with the 4XHD, which

The quad-cores have arrived and the first out of the blocks is LG's sequel to its dual-core Optimus 2X. The Korean phone maker has apparently recruited its \"best engineers \"on this wafer-thin slab of power and it shows; the phone is light and slim. It's taken a detour from the Prada Phone stylings

Nah, Panasonic's LF-PB271JD couldn't hold a candle to Sony's BWU-200S in a runway competition, but when it comes to performance, we'd say the two are practically neck and neck.

Compromises, compromises. With LG releasing their new 4x GBW-H10N Blu-ray burner this week, anyone willing to spend ~$1000 on a Blu-ray recordable drive may have to make one. While currently available drives only record at 2x speed, some are capable of recording to dual-layer 50GB discs. While the

Just when we were getting used to Pioneer's Blu-ray recording drive, LG has announced one that, on paper at least, blows it away. Like Pioneer's drive, it only supports burning to single-layer (25GB) Blu-ray discs, but it ups the speed from 2x to 4x for burning and playback. Also unlike the Pioneer
