Is Gold Really “In” ? LG G2 Spotted Flaunting A Gold Body!

without comments

Gold-Edition-LG-G2The LG G2 was according to us, the Android Handset that pushed the bar for manufacturers in 2013. ePrice says it has spotted a listing in Taiwan which suggests that LG is preparing to launch a gold edition of its flagship G2 smartphone.

No word on fficial prices  yet, but the 32 GB version of the golden G2 will supposedly retail for around $562 (16,900 TWD), whilst the 16 GB model will be sold just a tad cheaper at $500 (14,900 TWD), an identical price scheme as the existing colors.

Golden handsets have got a persona of their own which make consumers line up since they always are produced in a limited number. As much as I like the LG G2, I can’t say that I find this a particularly good look.

What do you have to say? Is this too much bling for a phone to handle?

LG G3 : Ready For CES 2014, Fingerprint Scanner Expected.

without comments

atrix-scanWhile it might’ve been the reason for the biggest show-stopping feature of 2013 on the Apple iPhone 5s, it really hasn’t taken off on Android Phones. Although, HTC tried it first with their HTC One Max, it really didn’t prove to be that great a usable feaure considering the overall form factor of the device itself.

A trusted Source reports that LG is testing a prototype with a Fingerprint Scanner. This Fingerprint scanner on the G3 is expected to be a “swipe” type. In addition to this fingerprint scanner, the G3 may also sport a 2K display and octa-core SoC. Also, the G3 is expected to launch sooner than expected, could be this January too!

Are Delayed Updates Paralysing The Android Smartphone Ecosystem!?

without comments

Android_KitKat_large_verge_medium_landscapeWe recently posted about when one could expect Android V4.4 Kitkat to arrive for specific smartphones. That post gets an update recently majorly from LG’s department,

While the LG G2 may be the big bulky brother of the Nexus 5 but it’s users still have to wait till Q1 2014 – LG Canada Quoted. That said, it is now not a rare phenomenon to see OEMs delaying updates. Now that consumers are getting used to this, social media too is no longer flooded with complaints.

Android has come a long way in terms of usability, but the updates need work. Bottom line, if you want a phone that is pretty easy to use and guaranteed updates for at least 2 years, get a Nexus. Only devices that come close are the Play edition phones and (lately) unlocked Motorola phones.

LG today finally officially launched the successor to last year’s LG Optimus and this year’s LG Optimus G Pro in the form of the LG G2, looks like the company will keep it short and sweet. The newly announced LG G2 has leaked quite a few times before and today some rumours were finally confirmed and LG may very well have what it takes to take on the likes of Samsung.

The LG G2 was launched with quite a few surprises despite being leaked multiples times and LG having launched plenty of accessories and other accompanyments for the device. The LG G2 packs quite a punch and features a 5.2-inch 1080p IPS touch display, a 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear facing camera with OIS and a 2.1MP front facing camera. The LG G2 features a 3,000mAh battery to keep it up and running for quite a while and will launch with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box although an Android 4.3 update is likely in the works. The G2 features rear places volume keys as well as a power/unlock key, apparently to make the awkward movements with such a large device a little more bearable.

The LG G2 is set to launch in a wide variety of global markets over the next two months with the US’ four main carriers in on the count. Pricing is still a mystery, but it is likely to cost $199 on a two year contract.
