The wonderful Dan Seifert joins me on episode #110 of my podcast (1 hour 1 min), in which we rant and rave about the HTC One (M9), the Samsung Galaxy S6, the Apple Watch, and more… We also share our excitement for the upcoming LG G4 and Microsoft apps — yes Microsoft!

Note: I’m well aware that the video version of this podcast ends suddenly after just 27 mins. Something must have happened during the Hangout on Air. I’ve reached out to Google for support and hopefully the full video will be restored.

LG G Flex2 video review

I first played with the LG G Flex2 at CES 2015, and just spent a few days using it. The verdict? It’s a fantastic phone — arguably LG’s new flagship.

Unlike the original G Flex, with its 6-inch 720p curved screen, the G Flex2 features a much improved 5.5-inch 1080p plastic AMOLED display. It’s also one of the first handsets to pack Qualcomm’s latest powerhouse chipset, the 64-bit Snapdragon 810. The G Flex2 is otherwise almost identical to last year’s G3, with a 13-megapixel shooter, laser autofocus, and (slightly more advanced) optical image stabilization. Still, LG’s camera software lacks basic manual controls, which is unfortunate considering the quality of the hardware.

Ultimately though, the G Flex2 looks great, ticks all the boxes, and runs Lollipop like a champ. What else do you really need? Check out my video review :)

tnkgrl Mobile podcast – #107

After a brief hiatus, I’m back with episode #107 of my podcast (1 hour 14 min)! The excellent Brad Molen joins me in the virtual control room to talk about IFA and the iPhone 6. It’s a reunion of sorts :)

We discuss the Moto X (2014), HTC Desire 820 & Butterfly 2, Samsung Galaxy Note 4 & Edge, Nokia Lumia 830 & 730, Sony Xperia Z3 & Z3 Compact, and the iPhone 6 & 6 Plus — amongst other things…

tnkgrl Mobile podcast – #106

For episode #106 of my podcast (1 hour 10 min), I was joined by the fabulous Chris Davies! The plan was to talk about Microsoft and the recent layoffs, but the conversation degenerated rapidly into other topics such as the LG G3, HTC One (M8), HTC Desire 816, Samsung Galaxy S5, Nokia Lumia 930, and Amazon Fire Phone, natch…

Another thing: Obi-Wan Kenobi and Angela Lansbury somehow both made it into the recording — you’ve been warned :)

LG G Pro 2 review

Launched at MWC in February, the G Pro 2 is LG’s answer to Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3. I finally spent some quality time testing this phone (alongside the G3), and came away pretty satisfied. What’s not to like about a large 5.9-inch 1080p IPS panel, 13 megapixel camera with OIS, Snapdragon 800 with 3GB RAM, and decent battery life? Here’s my video review.
