And all of that despite LG's claims that it is using some really efficient displays in those devices.So what happened and how did LG end up in this mess?First, though, let's take a look at the battery numbers.

The LG V40 ThinQ is a much bigger phone, yet it also has a rather small, 3,300mAh cell (compare this to a 3,700mAh battery on the OnePlus 6T, a 4,000mAh battery on Note 9 and a 4,200mAh battery on the Huawei Mate 20 Pro). But even with those smaller battery sizes, we are still disappointed with the results:With a scores of around 6 hours and a half on our battery test, the G7 and … [Read more...] about LG flagship phone battery life sucked in 2018, here is why

During his chat with IBM CEO Ginni Rometty, McAdam was in full 5G hype mode, referring to it as being able to usher in the 4th industrial revolution.

Is it any better than on the Galaxy S8 or Note 8 series? And how does it compare to other flagship phones in 2018?We've been using the two new Galaxy S9s for more than a week now and our real-life impressions about battery life are that you still need to go to the charger every night.
