ByinTips & Guides | January 3, 2017

How to dispose of yours old phone properly
With two-year contracts gone, it’s now so much easier to upgrade to a new phone. You can do so every year or in some instances even more often than that. Most users are over the moon about this but there is a dark side to frequent upgrades. Unless you trade in your old phone, which is not always required by the way, chances are that you already have a pile of old devices you will no longer use. Tossed aside and forgotten, they gather dust in a far corner of a drawer until one day you decide to do spring cleaning and get rid of your old stuff. Your first impulse might be to throw everything in a trashcan but it’s not a good idea. If you want  to do something good with your old used phone, here’s a responsible way to dispose of it.

LG G6 to arrive with wireless charging and waterproof body

ByinLeaks & Rumors | December 31, 2016

The LG G6 might go official at MWC

Let’s be honest, 2016 was pretty rough for LG, though this time a year ago nothing suggested it would be like this. The company was very optimistic and had great hopes for its first modular phone, the LG G5. However, when the device was launched, everything went downhill pretty fast – the phone and its Friends weren’t as warmly received as LG believed they would. Even the premium V20 didn’t manage to save the day and the manufacturer is ending the year with nearly $400 million loss. However, new year is a chance to impress users with a new flagship. It appears that LG learnt a lesson and the G6 is expected to arrive with lots of improvements among which are wireless charging and waterproof body.
