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.
Although quite weird considering it’s current positioning in the Android Market, we accepted it with reasoning of a temporary shift of focus for better profits. LG says blames the rumor on “non-credible sources and uninformed speculation.” A spokesperson asserted, “we are more committed than ever in making the LG brand a major player in the mobile space,” continuing, “and we think our products this year speak for themselves.”
We really would like to see what LG brings in 2014 considering it’s on an innovative front with it’s latest LG G Flex.
LG has always been lurking around in the background, trying to steal the spotlight from an unsuspecting competitor, such as their Time Square ad stating “LG Optimus G is here 4 you now” right next to Samsung’s ad teasing the Galaxy S4 launch, happening below the ad just days later. Now they have a new one.
No, it isn’t another meteor video on their new OLED TV screens. This time LG has decided to target users of competitors’ devices directly with targetted mobile ads in Scandinavia. If users using an iPhone access a site with the ad embedded, they are met with a screen stating “Hard to read this on your iPhone? Get the LG G2 with a 5.2″ FHD IPS Display”. They do something similar with HTC One and Galaxy S4 users stating “Tired of charging your HTC One? Get the LG G2 with 30% longer battery life” for the former and “Waiting for your Galaxy to catch up? Get the LG G2 with 20% faster processor” for the latter, both valid points and shown in a clever way.
Does LG have what it takes to become the third largest smartphone manufacturer in the world or better? Do you think they have some pizzaz? They were met with a huge outcry from global BlackBerry users today after trying to poke fun at the ailing smartphone maker.
Meet the LG G Flex, LG’s curved smartphone and their answer to the new Samsung Galaxy Round. The LG G Flex, also known as the LG Z, is expected to make its debut next month as the world’s second commercial flexible smartphone.
The LG G Flex, unlike the Galaxy Round, will have a vertically curved shape making viewing angles better as well as improving screen protection. The LG G Flex is still quite a mystery, but it will apparently feature a 6-inch 1080p display and its pretty safe to assume that it will also carry a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage and a 13MP rear camera in addition to the company’s new curved battery. Sadly, I feel that it will be more uncomfortable to hold and use than the Galaxy Round which is horizontally curved in order to fit the coutures of your palm.
I would be going out on a limb here when I say that the LG G Flex will be limited to South Korea, much like the Galaxy Round, for the foreseeable future, considering the scarcity of flexible displays…
Batteries. Batteries. Batteries. The biggest problem in modern tech, and the biggest necessity has just gotten a lot more interesting hanks to the guys over at LG Chem, who today showed off their new batteries, including a Cable Battery.
LG Chem’s Cable Battery is a battery that acts pretty much the same as your standard charger cable; it’s bendable, foldable and pretty darn strong. The battery is of course still in developmental phase, meaning it will be a few years until we see it in actual products, but when it hits, it will be implemented in loads of smart devices including phones, glasses and watches.
LG Chem also showed the Stacked Battery which is able to hold a much larger charge in a more compact housing, and is currently featured inside the LG G2. Their Curved Battery was also shown off and is set to be implemented in the company’s upcoming curved smartphone.
LG seems to have done it once again, the company has made a clucking awesome viral video to show off exactly what the concept of optical image stabilization is about, using a weird camera fanatic called Dave and a chicken of all things.
You’ve got to hand it to LG, their marketing team is pretty good, one viral advertisement after the other. LG recently made a new video to show off just how important stabilization is when taking a photo or recording a video, so they had a funny bloke and a chicken partner up to make a hilarious video. Dave, the camera man, discovers the best way to get his camera stable during action shots, by strapping it to a chicken. The results are pretty funny and you’re sure to laugh yourself halfway to the floor, gravity will of course do the rest.
Optical Image Stabilization, or OIS, seems to be the next IT thing in mobile cameras. Nokia has it. HTC has it. And the new LG G2 has it!
Just a few days after the upcoming Google Nexus 5 was leaked in an Android 4.4 KitKat video, the device has passed through the FCC, gaining some much needed attention, an official name, some features and confirmation that the device is indeed manufactured by LG.
The Google Nexus 5, also known as the LG Nexus 5 D820, with the LG G2 being the D802, has leaked after passing through the FCC, already being certified. The LG D820, or Google Nexus 5, has been confirmed to pack a 5-inch FHD display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, NFC and LTE. The Nexus 5 also seems to pack an oversized camera sensor, which leans us to believe that this year Google has focussed on the camera, after the failure that was the Nexus 4′s camera. The device also features an old build of Android 4.4 KitKat, still labelled Key Lime Pie.
LG seems to have fallen victim to the nasty new early leak bug once again after a supposed render of the upcoming LG G Pad 8.3 surfaced, showing off a tablet that look like an oversized LG G2. Speaking of which, did you know Amzer already has a great set of LG G2 accessories available?
The image above was acquired by the guys over at MovePlayer and seems to depict the upcoming LG G Pad 8.3 tablet, which is clearly set to feature a 8.3-inch display, with an apparent 1,920×1,200 pixel resolution display. Other than stealing its looks, the LG G Pad 8.3 will apparently also steal the LG G2′s super speedy Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC. It looks quite hot, especially in white and if I didn’t find Android’s user experience utterly disgusting, then the LG G Pad 8.3 would most certainly have replaced my iPad Mini. Just kidding.
The LG G Pad 8.3 will in all likelihood make its first OFFICIAL appearance at IFA 2013 in Berlin next week, so stay tuned, and make some popcorn!
