    LG G7 ThinQ launched

    The "confirmed" features of the G7 ThinQ are: 6.1 inch QHD+ "Full Vision Super Bright" display Snapragon 845 4GB / 6GB RAM 64 / 128 GB ROM Stereo speakers with Dolby DTS Surround Sound & "Boombox audio" Quad-DAC Wireless Charging "not a hair wider" than the G6 With the launch now upon us, and the phone "official"; there's more of the little details coming out. It seems that LG have made a huge jump from where the G6 was to where the G7 is; and even compared to the V30 flagship from late last year, there's a reasonable upgrade of specs (it could be argued more than Samsung did with the S8 - S9 upgrade). LG are making quite a thing of the new audio / speaker features in the G7, stating: The LG G7 ThinQ has a “Boombox Speaker.” The phone uses its inner space as a resonance chamber to “amp up the bass and deliver a premium, loud and room-filling audio experience.” The phone also has “Super Far-Field Voice Recognition.” According to LG, the G7 will be capable of hearing the user from a further distance, and it will pick up the user’s voice even in noisy places. The LG G7 has a 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC, making it the first G series device to have a Quad DAC*. It also has 7.1 channel DTS:X 3D Surround Sound. Here's the full official specification: Phone type Touch with rear fingerprint sensor Design Metal Frame & Gorilla Glass Display 6.1” QHD+ LCD "Full Vision Super Bright" (3120 x 1440) 564 ppi, Aspect Ratio 19.5:9 Chipset Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 845 Size 153.2 mm long x 71.9mm wide x 7.9mm deep Weight (g) 162 g Front Front 8MP camera, Wide-angle 80°, f/1.9 Rear 1st Camera: 16MP, Standard 71°, f/1.6 2nd Camera: 16MP, Wide-angle 107°, f/1.9 Software Android 8.0 Bluetooth 5.0 BLE (with Apt-X HD Support) USB Type-C 2.0 (3.1 compatible) Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac Wi-Fi Direct Yes NFC Yes A.I.

    News: LG G7 ThinQ launched

    LG are today set to finally release the oft delayed, re-imagined, re-developed, re-leaked G7 phone, and they've added their ThinQ AI technology to the camera.

    News: LG G7 ThinQ launched

    The V35 ThinQ (which is due to be launched very soon) is essentially a non-notch version of the G7 ThinQ, albeit allegedly with a P-OLED screen. It will be interesting to see how the battery (that's the same as the Samsung S8 / S9) copes in day to day use. From experience, my S8 can't cope with one day's use; yet my V30 (which has a 3300 mAh battery) rarely gets below 40%.
  5. It's widely expected that Insider Preview build 17134 will become the fabled 1803 release, but even that is not yet official. UPDATE: Microsoft finally announced, late on Friday night, that build 17134 will become the "April 2018" Windows 10 update; that update being made available to download on Monday 30th April (so only just keeping to April, eh). The build version is *still* 1803 rather than 1804 or almost 1805; but hey, at least it's finally here!
  6. UPDATED: The "upcoming" Windows 10 version 1803 (that stands for March 2018 release), unofficially known as the Spring Creators Update, *STILL* hasn't been released by Microsoft! Despite running almost 2 months behind schedule, the 1803 moniker is still being used by MS to describe this build, although the update hasn't been officially given any name.

    Insider Preview build 17134

    As Microsoft have said: UPDATE: Microsoft have now released 17134 to the Slow and Preview Release rings; and it's pretty clear they expect this build to form the upcoming (but much delayed) Spring Creators Update release.
  8. These moves fairly strongly suggest that build 17133 *is* going to be released as the long-awaited (and overdue) "Creators Spring Update", otherwise known as Windows 10, version 1803. UPDATE: It turns out Microsoft were intending for build 17133 to be the Spring Creators Update, but they discovered some issues which could lead to a "higher instance of blue screens (BSOD) on PCs". As a result, they've now pushed build 17134 to insiders in the Fast ring for testing.
  9. Following on from the news that build 17133 would *not* be the final Spring Creators Update build, due to an increased incidence of blue screens (BSOD); Microsoft have released build 17134 for testing.

  10. UPDATED: In the last few days Microsoft have started pushing Windows 10 Insider build 17133 to both the slow and Release Preview testing rings; and have named the update "Feature update for Windows 10, version 1803".

    Insider Preview build 17128

    In short... not much. This build is identical to the previously released 17127 build, except for the fact that Microsoft have removed the "evaluation build" watermark which usually sits in the lower right hand corner of the screen. Full release notes are available here.

    Insider Preview build 17120

    As is to be expected in a "release branch" build, there's not much that's new in this build, although Microsoft have introduced some changes to the Windows Defender Application Guard (WDAG) feature set. Here's how Microsoft describe it: Other than that, there's a few fixes for Windows Mixed Reality (no one actually uses this, do they?); and some general bug fixes. Here's Microsoft's full release notes.

    Insider Preview build 17115

    The good news is YES, Microsoft have fixed all the issues that existed in build 17112; so the short version of the rest of this article is ... "go ahead and install this build". Te ever-so-slightly longer version goes thus: There are no new features in theis build, which isn't a surprise as this is a build from the Redstone 4 "release" branch, meaning the focus is on fixing issues ahead of the Redstone 4 public release, rather than adding in new features. What's different though is that the Mixed Reality, Store & OneDrive major bugs from the last insider preview, are all now resolved, meaning we're getting closer to a final release build... which is just as well, as using Microsoft's 6 month rule as a guide, means we should be seeing a public build coming out this month (i.e. March). Full release notes are here.

    Insider Preview build 17112

    Um, actually .... nothing! This build is probably best avoided to be honest; it introduces a fairly big Mixed Reality bug which causes Mixed Reality to run very slowly and another which means the computer might blue screen (green screen as it's actually a test build) when a document is not sync'd from OneDrive; and it doesn't fix the disappearing Microsoft Store bug from 17110. All in all, I can't recommend this build. The full release notes are here.
