LG G5 Unboxing

Published

on

It’s not always that you can take apart something and end up with a better product, but that’s exactly the calling card of LG’s latest flagship, the G5.

Yup, you’re looking at the Lego equivalent of a smartphone, or at least the closest thing we have to a truly modular device that can be upgraded as easily as swapping out its components. Obviously, that future hasn’t fully arrived yet, but it’s good to see the Korean manufacturer actively pursuing it.

But before we get too far ahead of ourselves, it might be a good idea to take a look at what the G5’s retail package includes and, perhaps more importantly, see how its optional accessories slot into the base of the phone. Because as a G5 owner, obviously, the last thing you want to see is this $750 phone getting jammed in the wrong slot, and then breaking it into more pieces than LG intended.

To that end (and to show you how to get the app drawer back on the G5, among other things of note), we’ve published our LG G5 unboxing video.

As always, we encourage you to share your thoughts in the comments below and to subscribe to our YouTube channel for more videos like the one you see here.

Nokia created a new Nokia 3310 but it’s just cake

Always has been

After years of languishing in the darkness, Nokia has ascended back into the spotlight as a staple of the smartphone industry. That happened five years ago. HMD Global, the current owner of Nokia’s products, has a lot to be thankful for. And what’s a better way to celebrate a milestone anniversary than with a cake? To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Nokia’s new era, the company has partnered with renowned cake sculptor Michelle Wibowo.

The cake is designed after none other than the iconic Nokia 3310. Though it’s the newer version of the classic phone, the cake looks hyper-realistic. It looks as great as the actual phone. However, it was made with chocolate sponge and vanilla buttercream. The casing, on the other hand, is made with a hand-painted sugar shell casing.

Of course, Nokia has since launched a flurry of other phones since then. But the brand is especially indebted to the Nokia 3310 as one of the early devices that catapulted it to the top of the tech world in the early 2000s. The classic Nokia 3310 was launched in September 2000.

Michelle Wibowo is a famous cake sculptor known around the world. She has created works of art like the Hogwarts Castle and lifelike depictions of popular figures like Queen Elizabeth II. The hyper-realistic Nokia 3310 cake certainly echoes the past trend of creating everyday items with cake.

Apple launches new PRODUCT(RED) iPhone 13 models

And Apple Watch Series 7

Besides the iconic black variant, the red variant is one of the most popular color options for an iPhone. The now-ubiquitous (PRODUCT)RED version is more than just a sleek option, though. Apple’s partnership with (RED) has always been about raising awareness for HIV and AIDS. Now, 15 years later, Apple wants to continue the fight further with new PRODUCT(RED) products.

This holiday season, Apple is launching red variants of the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 mini. Outside of the iPhone lineup, the company is also introducing a PRODUCT(RED) variant of the Apple Watch Series 7. The wearable will also get six new watch faces with the PRODUCT(RED) theme. It also gets a few red strap options for more customization: Braided Solo Loop, Sport Band, and Sport Loop straps.

From now until the end of the year, Apple is donating a portion of the proceeds from the variants to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response. According to the initiative, combating COVID-19 will help the Global Fund redirect its efforts to fight AIDS.

Also, from December 6 to the end of the year, Apple is donating US$ 1 to the Global Fund for every purchase made with Apple Pay through Apple.com, the Apple Store app, and actual Apple Stores.
