LG G2 Mini rumoured specs may disappoint
News from Phones Review:

The recently released Sony Xperia Z1 f has really brought a true miniature flagship smartphone experience to consumers, but the LG G2 Mini rumoured specs could disappoint those that were hoping to see a rival to the Sony Xperia Z1 Mini.

Earlier this month we first heard about the possibility of an LG G2 Mini that pegged the device to feature some worthy specs, but if there is any truth in the latest rumour the handset if it exists won’t inspire many consumers to purchase one.

Now a handset with the codename of LG D410 has appeared on the GFX benchmark website, with some believing this device is in fact the LG G2 Mini. The site listing has the smartphone down with a possible 4.3-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of only 540 x 960.

This is being powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 quad core processor clocked at 1.2GHz, and running the Android 4.4 KitKat operating system. While there is no guarantee that this is the LG G2 Mini, it goes against the previous rumours about the d…………… continues on Phones Review

Verizon’s LG G2 Gets A Software Update (VS98012B) That Isn’t Android 4.4

Verizon’s LG G2 Gets A Software Update (VS98012B) That Isn’t Android 4.4
News from Android Police:

Like it says right up there in the title, don’t get your hopes up. The latest over-the-air update to the Verizon version of the LG G2 in not an updated version of Android, and it won’t get rid of those awful front-facing logos, either. But it does have a few much-needed bug fixes and security additions, plus it should smooth out some of the wrinkles in the initial release of LG’s customized software.

Here’s the changelog for software version, straight from the horse’s mouth (PDF link):

  • Video playback quality has been improved when viewing on websites
  • Dialing *611 will now appear on device screen
  • TalkBack reads each deleted letter when using Messaging Keyboard
  • Backup Assistant Plus resumes syncing after completing a voice call
  • Device lockups have been reduced
  • Viewdini application has been removed
  • Verizon Cloud app is now preloaded
  • Messaging is now supported via QSlide

Future LG Phones to Launch With BBM Pre-installed, Gets Baked Into the G Pro …
News from Droid Life:

LG and BlackBerry announced a new deal this morning, that will have BBM come pre-installed on upcoming devices from the Korean manufacturer, starting with the G Pro Lite. According to BlackBerry, this will help phone buyers access one of the world’s premier mobile communication services. The app sure has come a long way since being delayed time and time again on Android, so we think its good that BlackBerry has been able to squeeze a bit more life out of this service. 

Kevin Shin, Vice President of Marketing for Asia for LG spoke on the deal, saying that the G Pro Lite is the perfect device to take advantage of BlackBerry’s messaging service.

BBM is widely used throughout the Middle East, Africa and Indonesia wher…………… continues on Droid Life

LG G Flex review: first impressions of the flexi phone from LG

LG G Flex review: first impressions of the flexi phone from LG
News from TrustedReviews:

What is the LG G Flex

The LG G Flex is a new 6-inch smartphone and the first to benefit from a curved plastic OLED display that is capable of bending under pressure. Built around the foundations of the flagship LG G2, this phablet-sized phone has a powerful quad-core processor and 13-megapixel camera, but it’s the flexible body that’s the real eye-catching feature.

It’s the first flexible phone to enter mass production and although the LG G Flex is currently only available in Korea, it will be in the UK in early 2014. It’s a damn exciting and genuinley interesting phone, so we were keen to see how this curved phone compared to more standard phones.

Editor’s note: This isn’t a full review but our first impressions based on initial time with the product. We will publish a full review when it’s available on sale in the UK.

LG G Flex: Design

First things first, the LG G Flex has a very noticeable and pronounced curve to its design. With both the phone’s body and screen featuring a vertically concave bend, the G Flex’…………… continues on TrustedReviews

BBM to Come Pre-Loaded on LG Phones

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

BBM to Come Pre-Loaded on LG Phones
News from PC Magazine:

LG has inked a deal with BlackBerry to pre-load BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) on certain LG handsets.

The first device to come bundled with BBM will be the LG G Pro Lite, a 5.5-inch Android-based smartphone unveiled in October that is rolling out to Latin America, Asia, Russia, China, India, and the Middle East.

But BBM will arrive on other LG phones as standalone apps or through the LG App Manager, though LG did not elaborate. BBM will continue to be available via Google Play.

LG’s 5-5inch Gx launched in Korea

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

LG’s 5-5inch Gx launched in Korea
News from CNET Australia:

A new 5.5-inch LG smartphone has been launched in Korea. The Gx transplants the specs and features from the 5.2-inch G2 into a 5.5-inch shell.

The LG Gx was first leaked in some promotional documents, but that rumour has quickly become reality. The Gx was launched in Korea yesterday and features most of the same hardware as the slightly smaller G2.

A quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 processor, 13-megapixel camera, 32GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM and a big 3,140mAh battery are all largely in line with rumours and with LG’s existing G2. The new phone’s larger 5.5-inch display is a 1920×1080 pixel one, translating into a pixel density of 400ppi.

Running Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, the Gx has some LG-only features like Knock On, which wakes the phone after two taps on the screen in quick succession. A series of LG accessories can be bought to suit the Gx like the company’s QuickWindow case, which has a flip cover with a transparent area for notifications.

For now, the LG Gx is a Korean-only launch, but an international version with Australian 4G band support may be on its way.

A Nexus 8, more or less: LG’s G Pad 8.3 Google Play edition reviewed
News from Ars Technica:

Enlarge / LG’s G Pad 8.3, now in a stock-Android Google Play edition.

Andrew Cunningham

To date, Google has kept its lineup of Nexus phones and tablets pretty simple. There’s a phone, a small tablet, and a big tablet. Only one device in each category is offered for sale at any given time. The wider Android ecosystem is more diverse than that, though, and the operating system’s biggest power users demand more choices. Different form factors, bigger screens, and SD card slots are all common requests. The problem is that non-Nexus devices that support these features lack the clean, “stock” Android of the Nexus lineup, and they rarely get prompt operating system updates.

Samsung curved phone, LG G Flex hint at future phones as innovation stagnates

Samsung curved phone, LG G Flex hint at future phones as innovation stagnates
News from Newsday:

Photo credit: AP | The LG Electronics G Flex smartphone may foreshadow some of the new technology coming to the industry. This was a display this past month in Seoul, South Korea. (Nov. 5, 2013)

SAN FRANCISCO – This may be remembered as the year smartphones became boring.

Although high-definition displays on smartphones have gotten bigger and their cameras have gotten better, the pace of gee-whiz innovation has dawdled.

Smartphone and software makers are working on ways to snap out of this technological lull, although it probably will be at least another year or two before breakthroughs revolutionize the design and function of mobile comput…………… continues on Newsday

Aesthetics

LG G2 is slightly smaller but thicker with a 138.5 mm x 70.9 mm x 8.9 mm dimension than Sony Xperia Z1 with 144 mm x 74 x 8.5 mm in size. The difference  is not at all that remarkable. The most visible difference is that LG G2 has put the on/off and speaker volume buttons at the rear of the phone. This is the first time that a smartphone has deviated from the normal design of those buttons placed on the side of the phone. LG makes it easier to adjust the volume while speaking on the phone.

Screen And Display

LG G2 has a slightly bigger screen than Xperia Z1. G2 5.2-inch screen compared to Xperia Z1′s 5-inch screen. Both are sporting a full-HD resolution of 1, 920×1, 080 pixels. However, due to G2′s slightly wider screen, Sony’s flagship had a greater pixel density of 441 ppi.

News from Daily Star:

FROM iPhones to Nokia, here’s the Daily Star Online’s ultimate guide to the top smartphones of 2013

BEST: See our guide to the top 5 smartphones this Christmas [Daily Star Online]

If you’re looking for a new smartphone this Christmas you might be baffled by the hundreds of handsets on offer.

Luckily, the Daily Star Online has had its hands on all the top phones in 2013 and, after hours of texting, calling, emailing and snapping pictures, we can reveal our top five.

So, if you want to know what should take pride of place in your pocket, read our full guide below.

BEST BUDGET: The Moto G packs a punch for its price [PH]

BEST BUDGET

MOTO G from Motorola • Tesco £99

At just £99 from Tesco you’d expect this phone to look cheap and nasty.

But the Moto G is remarkably well built and feels pretty plush in your hand. Switch it on and the Snapdragon processor will roar into action, producing a fast and slick experience.

The phone runs on Android 4.3, although Motorola promises a free upgrade to 4.4 KitKat when it becomes available.

LG G2 Android 4.4 KitKat update postponed to early 2014, at least in France
News from Android Authority:

Update: LG on Sunday posted a message on its South Korean website, advising LG G2 owners that the domestic Android 4.4 KitKat update will begin in December, although the company did not mention actual roll out dates for the handset. Following the local KitKat update, we would expect to see international LG G2 also receive the software update, although LG is yet to announce such plans for other markets.

After initially saying that the LG G2 will be updated to Android 4.4 KitKat at some point in November/December, SFR France has posted an update on its blog to announce handset owners that the rollout has been postponed to early 2014.

The carrier said that the update may be available in late January, without committing to an actual roll out date, assuming that the internal testing is completed by that time.

Review: LG’s G Flex smartphone is a preview of the future
News from Los Angeles Times:

The LG G Flex isn’t available in the United States, but it could be a preview of what’s to come in the world of smartphones.

That’s because the futuristic devices features two technologies we haven’t seen before: a curved screen and a self-healing coat.

The LG G Flex is one of the first two commercially available curved-screen smartphones. The phone’s massive 6-inch screen curves slightly from its top edge down to the bottom. If you lay it on a table, the top and bottom stick up ever so slightly.

To make the curved screen, LG used a plastic organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, technology. This kind of screen has been heavily talked about in the tech industry since late last year because of what they could mean for smartphones.

OLED screens are flexible, which means phone makers could potentially come up with new shapes and screen designs for their devices. And because OLED screens are made of plastic, these displays are supposed to be more durable than the glass smartphone screens we have today.

Watch LG’s new flexible phone heal itself after a knife scratch
News from The Verge:

When LG announced its curved smartphone, the G Flex, it boasted that the handset was coated with a “self-healing” material and even compared it to Wolverine from X-Men. LG later released a promotional video showing off the tech in action, but it’s only now that someone has put the company’s claims to the test. In YouTube personality / video producer Marques Brownlee’s hands-on with the device, he checks out the self-healing coating with a number of tests.

First up is a set of keys, which Brownlee creates some light scratches with. As you’ll see in the video, the LG G Flex essentially “heals” the scratches made. It doesn’t completely remove them, but apparently makes the marks almost invisible to the naked eye. He then carves out a deeper scratch using a knife, which “half heals,” appearing far less visible than it would on a regular phone.

Brownlee has what seems like a sound theory for why the results weren’t perfect, though. LG’s promotional clip was film…………… continues on The Verge
