LG unveils V20, company’s first Android Nougat-powered smartphone

Don’t have a Nexus and want to get your hands on an Android 7.0 Nougat device already? LG just unveiled the V20, the V10’s successor. It’s the first device outside of Google’s Nexus devices to get the latest Android operating system.

Instead of maintaining its distinct look with a rugged, grippy back and stainless steel sides, the V20 looks rather similar to the G5 with its smooth aluminum surface. But this phone doesn’t carry LG’s interpretation of modular smartphones. The good thing though is you can still swap out the 3,200mAh battery and the phone is supposedly sturdy having been rated MIL-STD 810G for drop and shock resistance. Don’t take it swimming with you, though, as the phone isn’t water resistant.

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 explodes in hotel room causing fire damage

Despite issuing a global recall last week, Samsung is still a hot topic because of its defective Galaxy Note 7 flagship. Reports of a Note 7 spontanously exploding in a hotel in Austrialia and causing US $1,400.00 worth of damage.

“My brand new Note7 exploded this morning while I was still asleep, it was plugged in and charging,” he said. “Phone completely fried, I can’t eject the SIM tray to retrieved [sic] my SIM or the SD card. I was using original charger and cable if you are wondering. Charred the hotel room bed sheet and the carpet when I whacked it down to the floor, burnt one of my finger [sic] while doing that too.”

Credit to Samsung, they gave the customer a loaner to replace his charred device and they apparently also covered all the damage done to the hotel room.
