LG V30 Raspberry Rose hands-on: Simply stunning

This one’s a looker



If you’re looking for the LG V30 review, this isn’t it. (Although we’ve previously written about it and you can read that HERE.) This is a post dedicated to how pretty their newly released color is.

This is the LG V30 in Raspberry Rose.

When I first heard that the LG V30 was coming in another color, I flipped. The lavender was pretty enough, but a red one?

I wasn’t mistaken. This version is as stunning as I had imagined.

I first saw the phone in this shade at the LG booth in CES. Unfortunately, there weren’t any units outside of the display so I wasn’t able to appreciate it’s full glory — until now.

There are no mincing words: This phone is just gorgeous. The rich red is an eye catcher, but it’s also in a deep and muted tone that it isn’t too loud or vulgar.

So many pretty things in this last photo!

This phone comes with the same LG V30 specs, including that 6-inch OLED screen and a near borderless display.

Same processor and cameras on the Raspberry Rose LG V30 make it the same multimedia powerhouse…

… only in a more dazzling color. This may very well be, in terms of color, one of the best-looking phones out there.

If you can’t get enough of the LG V30 now, and I don’t blame you after those incredible-looking photos, you can watch our review here. Just imagine having everything in this video, but in Raspberry Rose.

If you still can’t get enough, you’re in luck. LG has announced that the LG G6 will also be available in the same magnificent color.

I need me more Raspberry Rose in my life!

Special Edition Predator Helios 300 looks awesome in white

The gaming machine is a looker!



Today, Acer announced a slew of new devices. From powerful gaming computers to updated notebooks, fans gathered as the tech brand unveiled products at the annual #NextAtAcer event in New York.

Out of all the gadgets and gizmos showcased, one thing caught everyone’s eye. This is the special edition Predator Helios 300.

It comes in a stunning all-white aluminum chassis with gold details — something you don’t see a lot of with gaming laptops.

Of course, it’s not all looks. Specs have been updated, too. It’s powered by the latest Core i7 processor with up to 16GB of RAM (expandable to 32GB) and 512GB SSD storage.

This thing is also equipped with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics card and a 15.6-inch display with a refresh rate of 144Hz. Other than those changes, it’s still the same powerful machine released last year.

Regional pricing is yet to be announced for this bad baby. In the meantime, let’s just ogle at this beautiful, clean, and crisp-looking exterior.

As if it doesn’t get any better, Acer also unveiled matching white accessories.

A gaming mouse and headphones to match the whole mood.

Just look at that. I can’t stop staring, and I’m sure you feel the same way.

This is definitely this year’s best-looking gaming device so far. Take my money, Acer!

Vivo showcases new tech in FIFA World Cup TVC

Are we getting a retractable selfie camera?



Last year, Vivo announced that they are FIFA’s official smartphone sponsors under a six-year contract. Expect to see a lot of the brand, especially during the World Cup in 2018 and 2022.

A TVC highlighting the partnership just dropped and Vivo showcases their newest and greatest in smartphone tech. From bezel-less displays to in-display fingerprint sensors, the video shows it all.

At first, because of the in-display fingerprint sensor, the video seems to feature the Vivo X21 which launched in Singapore early this month, and is set to release in other Asian countries in June. But, what’s really curious is that it eventually shows a bezel-less smartphone with a retractable selfie camera. The only other time we saw that type of camera from Vivo was at this year’s MWC when they unveiled the Vivo APEX concept phone which they stressed was just a prototype.

This teaser comes at a perfect time as Vivo is set to launch a new all-display smartphone in Shanghai a few days ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russia that opens on June 14.

Will we be seeing a smartphone with a retractable selfie camera on the market soon? Only time will tell.

Twitter introduces Twemoji for Android

For the good of all emoji!



Android users, rejoice! You’ll never have to see those emoji error boxes on Twitter again. 

Remember not being able to read and appreciate tweets fully because some emoji don’t show? This error happens because of incompatibility and fragmentation. Twitter wants to solve this problem.

The company just rolled out Twemoji for Android 7.0 and below which aims to allow everyone to see all emoji, regardless of what (older) phone they’re on. Emoji from Google or Samsung can now be replaced; you can toggle this setting on the Twitter menu and turn on Twemoji.

The new Twemoji, which is actually done through Google’s EmojiCompat library, is a welcome update. At least one third of Android users are still on versions from 2014 or earlier.

Now you can really say there are emoji for everyone!
