Finally LG is introducing two new color variations for the two phones. As well as being available in "Asro Black," you'll be able to pick up both devices in "Marine Blue" and "Terra Gold."Pricing and availability dates for the G6 Plus and exact dates for the software update will be announced at a later date and will be different in each country. Your LG G6 is about to get even better. And if you don't already have one, you might want to try the new G6 Plus instead. LG announced an upgraded version of its flagship G6 phone on Monday.
Amazon calls the 2017 edition of its Fire HD 8 tablet the "all-new Fire abstract geometric 11 iphone case HD 8," but there really isn't anything new about it except a handful of new colors -- oh, and its slightly lower price tag, Already a good deal when it debuted at $90 or £90 in 2016, it's now down to $80 or £80, (It's not available in Australia so far, but the US price converts to about AU$100.) By comparison, Apple's larger 9.7-inch iPad starts at $329, £339, or AU$469 while the similarly sized Apple iPad Mini 4 (128GB) costs $399, £379 or AU$569, In other words, you could literally buy four to five Fire HD 8s for the price of one iPad..
Like last year's model, this "new" HD 8 includes 16GB of internal memory, with an expansion slot for adding microSD memory cards. The only change that instead of accepting cards up to 200GB in capacity the Fire HD 8 now accepts cards up 256GB. You can also get this tablet with 32GB of internal memory, as well as a new 32GB Kids Edition that includes a protective case, a two-year, no-questions-asked replacement guarantee should the device get damaged, and a year of the FreeTime Unlimited subscription service.
Powered by a 1.3GHz quad-core processor and with 1.5GB of RAM, the HD 8 is rated to deliver 12 hours of juice, Amazon says that 12-hour battery rating is for "mixed-use," so it's hard to determine in our own video streaming tests if the new HD 8 lives up to those numbers, but the battery life, while not exceptionally good, is quite decent for a budget tablet, The biggest hit it took was with heavy use of Wi-Fi and playing more graphics-intensive games, The HD 8 now comes in a Kids Edition, Like all of Amazon's latest Fire tablets, including the slightly improved entry-level Fire 7, you can access the Alexa voice assistant with a tap of a virtual abstract geometric 11 iphone case button, The feature comes in handy for quickly accessing the latest weather and news, as well as finding and playing a specific video or artist in Amazon Video or Music, However, you do have to push that virtual button to access Alexa, so you can't tell your tablet what to do from across the room..
Available in four colors, the 2017 HD 8 retains its zippy feel -- I thought apps loaded reasonably quickly and the device didn't feel sluggish. (The 2015 model was noticeably more sluggish.). Thanks to the stereo speakers tuned with Dolby audio, the tablet outputs a good amount of sound and works well for movie watching. The front and rear cameras are pretty basic by today's standards (the rear captures 720p video), but at least they're there and available for such apps as Skype. Fire HD vs. iPad Mini 2 with Retina display.
