  • LG : Un service après-vente décevant

    CBC Radio Canada - La Facture (Broadcast) Journalists François Sanche and Marie-Claude Pednault share the stories of Mathieu Tanguay and Serge Lemay. Tanguay had an issue with his LG fridge light switch. He attempts to replace the part which is inexpensive in the U.S. The part was unavailable in Canada or many times the price. Lemay’s six-year-old washer had a broken pump and claims that after repeat attempts to schedule a repair, he was told no LG representatives could come to his home in Deschaillons-sur-Saint-Laurent.

    In the segment, Marie-Claude states, “We contacted LG Canada, who explained that measures are in place if the service does not appear to be available in a particular area.” The company adds that, "Unfortunately, in the case of Mr. Lemay, we made a mistake and that these measures were not followed.”

  • Party like it’s the early 2000s — flip phones poised to make comeback in 2017

     

    Yahoo! News (Online) featured an article speculating that LG could follow Samsung and release a foldable phone in 2017. The article describes a potential design that would have the phone flip vertically to offer users a landscape view with a touch screen located on both the front and back of the phone.

    It states, “In fact, a separate LG patent shows just such a design — another proposal for a foldable phone shows the flip happening on the vertical edge, which means that when it’s unfolded, you’re greeted with what looks like a tablet in landscape mode. The device would have a touchscreen on both the front and the back, while the hinge could serve as a music controller or notification bar. And of course, there would be a camera, flash, and fingerprint scanner.”

The headphones are also sweat and water resistant -- which is a pretty necessary feature considering the fact that the way they're designed is sure to induce more then a little sweat around your neck."
