Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One Mini vs LG G3: Three top smartphones face off
News from Ecumenical News:

The interest in Android phones has grown at a record pace, challenging Apple Inc.’s dominance in the mobile industry.

Homegrown Android phones such as Samsung Galaxy S5, HTC One Mini and LG G3 are three of the most talked about smartphones of today.

Three different handsets from three different global leaders in smartphone technology – who wins this three way face off? We take a look at a Samsung Galaxy S5 vs HTC One Mini vs LG G3 comparison.

HTC One Mini is the obligatory scale-down version of the brand’s premier smartphone.

Released in August of 2013, this smartphone features 4.3-inch display with 1280 x 720 resolution and 342 pixels per inch density, 16GB with 1GB RAM, 4MP rear facing camera, 1.6MP front-facing camera, Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 chipset with dual-core 1.4GHz.

The Verge gave HTC One Mini a good review, but loathes the battery.

LG G3 review: The best premium 4G Android smartphone in the market
News from Firstpost:

They say all good things come to those who wait and it seems like the G3 was quite worth the wait after all. With a launch price of Rs 47,990 for the 16GB version, the G3 is here for to satiate your flagship hunger. Here’s our review of LG’s flagship after a week’s usage.

Design and Build

Like all the current flagship Android phones, the G3 is a well-done evolution of the G2. The display size is larger at 5.5-inches but LG has managed to keep the dimensions closer to a 5-inch phone, which is highly commendable. This is now the second phone in India to sport an Ultra HD resolution of 2560 x 1440, pushing the pixel count to a maddening 534ppi. It’s an IPS LCD display and the brightness levels are very good making it easily legible outdoors. The colours don’t seem too accurate however when compared to Full HD IPS displays or AMOLED displays. The difference is only noticeable when compared however.

Stunning design and build

The phone feels elegant and premium to hold albeit quite slippery. This reminded us of the HTC One M8 a lot. Like the G2, there aren’t any buttons on the sides, just the IR blaster on the top and the USB and headphone jack down at the bottom.

The metal back looks quite stunning

The back portion sports a brushed metal finish, whic…………… continues on Firstpost

LG G3 Review: This Phone Shoots Lasers

LG G3 Review: This Phone Shoots Lasers
News from Huffington Post UK:

The LG G3 is the latest flagship from the smartphone and electronics company, it boasts a 5.5-inch Quad HD display and comes with a state-of-the-art laser focusing system which shoots lasers out of the back of the phone.

Key features:

  • 5.5-inch Quad HD Display
  • 13MP OIS+ with laser autofocus
  • 1-Watt Speaker
  • Quick Circle Case
  • Wireless Charging
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 2.4GHz quad-core processor
  • 3,000mAh removable battery

Verdict:

When it comes to making smartphones LG has an image problem. On the one hand it can make probably some of the best Android smartphones in the world (the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 are both clear examples). Then, on the other hand, it can ignore everything it has learned and throw it all away.

The G2 was universally loved, and it had many impressive features but it hasn’t aged well, look around the web and you’ll see that the media and consumers were less than in love with just how cluttered the G2 was. Put the G2 and the G3 next to each other and they’ll certainly look similar in terms of physical appearance. Turn on the screen though and the contrast is stark.

Look on a timeline and it’s even more apparent how indecisive the company is, first came the Nexus 4, then the Optimus G (which was…………… continues on Huffington Post UK

LG G3 Review – Droid Life
News from LG G3 Review – Droid Life:

g3 review-1

Quad HDs. Lasers. Floating Arcs. Q all the things. LG has filled its new G3 flagship with so many keywords and flashy marketing terms that you can’t help but give it a look. And you know what, you would be a fool not to give it more than a look.

LG has slowly been rebuilding its reputation over the last couple of years, partly with the help of Google and the Nexus brand, but also thanks to last year’s G2 and some of its recently released tablets. The Korean company has even tried to become the alternative to Samsung and those looking for something different. LG wants to be taken seriously, so they are playing with design ideas (rear buttons), testing out new materials (self-healing backs), and of course, pushing out new display types often (think of the curved panel in the G Flex).

The LG G3 feels like the culmination of all that LG has worked for. It introduces new technologies, its accompanying marketing plan is taking direct shots at Samsung, and they finally have people truly excited about one of their products. It’s time to take a lo…………… continues on LG G3 Review – Droid Life

LG G3 (AT&T)
News from PC Magazine:

By Sascha Segan

Nobody does hardware innovation quite like LG right now. The company won the GSMA’s Innovation Award for a good reason: When it comes to critical parts like sharp screens, long-lasting batteries, and exterior materials, LG is pushing all the boundaries. That level of nonstop innovation makes the LG G3 ($ 199 with contract) America’s most advanced smartphone and our Editors’ Choice.

That doesn’t mean it’s the phone I would buy. I haven’t seen this much difference between my rational and emotional responses to a phone since the first Galaxy Note, which I was ready to throw out a window. I got that one wrong, though, and I learn from my mistakes.

Physical Design and Screen
At 5.76 by 2.94 by .35 inches (HWD) and 5.3 ounces, the G3 is just on the border between a phone and a phablet. It’s very well-built, with almost no bezel aroun…………… continues on PC Magazine

LG G3 Tip: Customizing Navigation Buttons

LG G3 Tip: Customizing Navigation Buttons
News from Droid Life:

Even though we have had a Korean version of the LG G3 for a number of weeks, we held off on fully diving into the device because well, it was the Korean variant. Those models tend to be quite different than the versions released in the US. Features will change (or be omitted), plus wireless connectivity is never great when running international models on our networks, so reviewing them is absolutely silly. Thankfully, AT&T released their variant last week and the rest of the major US carriers plan to have the phone available by this Friday. That means, in case you didn’t guess, that it is time for us to show you all of the tips and tricks to make your experience the best, should you happen to buy one.

The first thing we are going to look at is the navigation button setup. This time around, LG gave us a traditional button layout of Back-Home-Recent Apps, but you can tweak the layout of it or add new buttons to quickly complete other tasks. You can add buttons for accessing the notification shade, QuickMemo, QSlide, and even Dual Window. You can change the color of the navigation area, decide if you want it to be transparent on the home screen, and even have it hide while in specific apps unless called u…………… continues on Droid Life

LG G3 review – 2014′s phone to beat?
News from TmoNews:

With Samsung pretty much cleaning up on the Android market, you could be forgiven for ignoring its Korean competitor up until last year. The LG G2 turned heads. Its odd, rear-placed power and volume buttons as well as its super-slim bezels made it something of a milestone for LG. And then the ridiculously huge, curved G Flex ensured no one could ignore the company again.

The big question for 2014 was whether or not the manufacturer could follow up the awesomeness that was the G2 with anything as good this year. Then it dropped the G3. And to make sure everyone heard about it, there were launch events in multiple countries, in multiple timezones. One of which I was fortunate enough to attend. And thanks to the hosts, I’ve been using the G3 as my daily, go-to phone for the past couple of weeks.

Design

In the modern day, it’s difficult for companies to stamp any noticeable creative mark on phone chassis design. You don’t have too much to work with now that every phone must start with a large, rectangle touch screen. But LG’s managed it here.

First there was the LG G3 flagship which was an amazing from the Korean manufacturer, and then there was the LG G3 Mini. Today, there’s another variant going by the name LG G3 Beat, which is based on the flagship as well and has 4G LTE connectivity.

Not resting on its laurels with the G3 Mini, now the G3 Beat comes around to capture another segment of the market. Some characteristics of the G3 flagship are still there but most of it was totally downgraded.

Apple leads phone sales in May, Samsung gains, and LG loses steam
News from Digital Trends:

Apple hasn’t unveiled a new iPhone in more than nine months, but the company still has a stranglehold on the U.S. smartphone market. In May, Apple claimed 41.9 percent of the market, according to a report from comScore. Samsung grew its market share, while LG and HTC lost a bit of their respective shares of the pie.

Apple’s share reflects an increase of 0.6 percentage points from its 41.3 percent share in February. Samsung finished May in second place with 27.8 percent of the market, up 0.8 percentage points. LG finished third with 6.5 percent of the U.S. smartphone market, down 0.3 percentage points.

Motorola (6.3 percent, unchanged) and HTC (5.1 percent, down 0.3 percentage points) rounded out the list of the top smartphone original equipment manufacturers in May.

Nevertheless, Google’s Android was the king of smartphone platforms with 52.1 percent of the market, maintaining its share from February. Apple’s iOS followed with 41.9 percent, up 0.6 percentage points. Microsoft held steady with 3.4 percent of the market, as BlackBerry followed with 2.3 percent.

OnePlus One vs. LG G3: Specifications, Features and Price Comparison
News from International Business Times AU:

One of the most awaited phones, the LG G3, was released on May 27, 2014 in selected regions. This phone comes bundled with terrific features, superior hardware/software performances and a stunning camera unit. The OnePlus One, on the other hand, was released only recently in June 2014. Owing to the impressive high-end specifications and a budget-friendly price tag, OnePlus One is a killer smartphone. Readers who are interested in buying one of the aforementioned handsets should check out this specification and price comparison.

Display, Exterior and Size

Surprisingly, both the phones come with the same 5.5 inches IPS LCD displays. The difference comes in the form of screen resolution and pixel density. The LG G3 features a superior screen resolution of 1,440 x 2,560 pixels with 534 ppi pixel strength, while the OnePlus One features a relatively lesser 1,080 x 1,920 pixels resolution, in combination with 401 ppi pixel density.

These killer screen specifications provide stunning viewing experience in the humongous phablet-like screens of both G3 and One. However, the unique selling point of the OnePlus One handset is the magne…………… continues on International Business Times AU

LG G3 is launching in Canada on August 1st

LG G3 is launching in Canada on August 1st
News from Canada.com:

LG has announced that its latest flagship phone, the LG G3, is launching in Canada on August 1, 2014.

Rogers, Bell, MTS, SaskTel and Videotron will all be carrying the phone. Tbooth, The Source, Wireless Wave, Wireless Etc and Wow mobile will also be selling the phone.

The LG G3 supports LTE and reportedly features a less bloatware filled experience than what was present on LG’s G2, a phone that was only launched approximately six months ago. LG has improved the smartphone’s build quality and developed a better auto-focus mechanism for the phone’s 13 mega-pixel camera. The G3 also features the latest version of Android 4.4.2 giving the operating system a simpler, more flattened look.

The LG G3′s build quality seems to be an improvement over the G2. Handout/LG

The smartphone’s 5.5-inch screen features an extremely high 2560×1440 resolution display and a 3,000mAh battery, hopefully improving the G3′s battery life slightly over the G2.

The LG G3 Review
News from AnandTech:

While the enthusiast segment is no stranger to LG smartphones, for the most part LG hasn’t received nearly the amount of attention that Samsung has. At first, it doesn’t make much sense. After all, LG is almost as big as Samsung. Both are chaebols, with enormous resources and power that few other companies have. Starting from the Optimus G, it seems that LG has shipped some of the best hardware in the industry, leveraging all the branches of the company from LG Innotek to LG Display to make a product that was easily equal to or better than the competition at the time.

One of the real issues that LG faced was a credibility gap. After the Optimus 2X and 4X HD, LG simply lacked credibility amongst the enthusiast audience. Without this audience and without the marketing push that other OEMs had, LG phones simply didn’t sell. Fortunately, things have gotten better since those days. The G2 brought significant attention to LG phones, and if anything, LG has been the sleeping giant in the industry. LG’s displays have been some of the best in the industry, and as an Android OEM they’ve consistently executed well on hardware. The immense popularity of the LG-made Nexus 4 and 5, even amongst mainstream consumers is surprising, especially because they were supposed to be developer devices.

This leads us to the LG G3, which is now available in Korea and ready to be s…………… continues on AnandTech

With the G3, LG finally makes a phone that can take on Samsung & Apple (review)

With the G3, LG finally makes a phone that can take on Samsung & Apple (review)
News from VentureBeat:

You have to admire LG’s tenacity.

It doesn’t have the money and marketing clout of Samsung, its South Korean electronics sibling. And outside of TVs and home appliances, it’s struggled to establish itself as a premium consumer-electronics brand.

But LG is undoubtedly the Android phone maker most deserving of a “most improved” award, given its dramatic progress over the past few years. It went from creating middling devices in Android’s early years to becoming Google’s trusted partner for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 phones, which are notable for offering a pure Android experience.

Now we have the G3, LG’s third G-series flagship phone. And it’s a winner.

Smartwatch Advances: Close Look at LG G Watch, Samsung Gear Live and Gear 2

LG G3 vs Galaxy S5 head-to-head review
News from V3.co.uk:

Since Samsung launched the Galaxy S2 in 2011, its share of the Android market has been growing at a phenomenal rate. Its Korean sibling LG – despite success on other shores – always held a modest share of the UK smartphone market and has been fairly quiet until recently.

But in June, LG released probably its best smartphone to date, the G3. Yet, with Samsung having released its own flagship months before – the Galaxy S5, which has equally impressive specifications – many buyers have justifiably wondered which handset is most worth their attention and hard-earned cash.

Design and build
Both the Galaxy S5 and G3 have very different designs, despite both featuring removable polycarbonate backplates and metallic sides.

This is primarily because of the G3′s button placement. Unlike the Galaxy S5 and most other handsets, the G3′s volume and power buttons are on its back, rather tha…………… continues on V3.co.uk
