Samsung Galaxy S5 vs LG G3 Review: Comparison of Specs, Features, Price
News from Christian Post:

By Virnelli Mercader , Christian Post Contributor

December 15, 2014|11:31 pm

It’s the battle for smartphone supremacy as the Samsung Galaxy S5 goes head to head with the LG G3. Both phones come with an amazing display and impressive cameras, but which one of these phones will reign supreme?

Youtube Screenshot/ file

LG G3 vs. Samsung Galaxy S5

Design:
The G3 incorporates LG’s Floating Arc design, so one can see that the back of the phone is curved, which makes it fit comfortably in one’s hand. It measures 5.8 x 2.9 x 0.35 inches and weighs 5.3 ounces. It has a large display measuring 5.5 inches with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and has one of the sharpest displays you can find on any handset.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy S5 is still heavy on the plastic like its predecessor, but it now has a faux leather back. It measures 5.6 x 2.9 x 0.31 inches and weighs 5.1 ounces, and though it’s a smidge smaller and lighter than the G3, you’ll find that it can be hard to manipulate the device with one hand. The 5.1 inch display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080.

Features:
The Galaxy S5 has an IP rating of 67, and the device can withstand a depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes. It is powered by a Snapdragon 801 p…………… continues on Christian Post

LG G3 Android Lollipop update arrives for UK

LG G3 Android Lollipop update arrives for UK
News from Phones Review:

If you have the flagship LG G3 smartphone and are in the UK then we have some news today that’s likely to be very interesting to you. Since Android 5.0 Lollipop released it has so far reached relatively few devices, but now the LG G3 Android Lollipop update is arriving for the UK, bringing a major upgrade to your device.

We’ve already seen the update arrive for some Nexus devices as well as a few Motorola handsets and selected others, and back in early November we reported that LG had beaten many other manufacturers to the starting line with Lollipop. At that time LG announced that G3 owners would start to receive the update and that the first region to get it would be Poland with other key markets to receive it in the “near future.”

Even once an update releases for a device in one region it can take some weeks and even months for it to arrive to all regions and carrier models. Now it’s reported that the Android Lollipop update for the LG G3 has reached the UK and is currently being seeded to models on Vodafone UK. Now it has arrived for the phone on one UK carrier it’s likely to become available on further carriers soon.

LG’s tablet offering the G Pad 8.3

LG appears to be one of the tech companies who are getting their hands on the Firefox OS technology with their alleged new addition to the L Series smartphones.

Recent item from the rumor mill pointed out sketches of the purported handset along with a couple of screenshots depicting the device’s specification details which are being leaked online.

The leak was first propagated by @upleaks and was then picked up by a number of tech websites including that of GSMArena.com and NDTVGadgets.com.

According to GSMArena, the LG L25 will only be made available Japanese carrier KDDI which apparently means that it won’t be making its way to other territories.

“[LG L25 in] Firefox platform is mostly about budget devices so you shouldn’t expect anything groundbreaking,” the site meanwhile indicated.

As for what it would look like, the leaked images described the upcoming LG unit having a single home button, rear and front-facing cameras with flash and sensors, plus a speaker located at the lower right of the phone’s rear panel.

LG L25 Firefox OS phone leaked
News from Phones Review:

This next item of news is more of a snippet, because there’s really not too much we can tell you at the moment. It regard some information about an LG phone running the Firefox OS that has been leaked, and it looks as though the LG L25 could be the company’s first Firefox handset.

The Firefox mobile operating system hasn’t grabbed any significant market share yet, but as a recent addition to mobile platforms we wouldn’t expect that. It has been mostly used so far on budget handsets, and so we don’t anticipate the LG L25 being anything to get too excited about in the way of specs.

The leak from @upleaks doesn’t give any details of specs or features so we’ll have to wait for more on that. However, it does give a sketch of the handset and a look at the user interface via some screenshots (see source). The phone won’t be widely available, and the tipster says that it will be headed to KDDI, a Japanese carrier.

Obviously none of the above can be confirmed at this stage, but hopefully we’ll be hearing more about this over the next few weeks. This could come either in the way of further leaks or maybe even an official unveiling or announcement about it at CES 2015 in January next year.

Are you surprised to hear that LG looks to be working on its first Firefox OS phone? Would you consider trying out the LG L25 if it were available in your region? Do…………… continues on Phones Review

News from Apple Insider:

Feature

Qualcomm’s upcoming 64-bit Snapdragon chips designed to power new high end Android flagship phones including the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and HTC One M9 are reportedly running into new issues that threaten to further delay any real competition to Apple’s iPhone 6 juggernaut.

A report by Business Korea claimed that Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 is facing new “hard-to-solve” problems including overheating, RAM controller issues and “an error in the driver of the Adreno 430 GPU.”

The site attributed the “unexpected hurdles” to an unnamed industry source. Samsung, LG, HTC and most other leading Android licensees currently use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips to power most of their smartphones, so any further delays by Qualcomm can only exace…………… continues on Apple Insider

LG G Watch R review: pricey but worth it

LG G Watch R review: pricey but worth it
News from Telegraph.co.uk:

Its 1.3-inch P-OLED display is crisp and has a decent resolution of 320 x 320, but the screen sensitivity can be slightly hit and miss, leaving your tapping the watch face several times to summon the menu you’re after. The leather strap quickly develops a ridge around the notch of your choice, although a variety of interchangeable 22mm straps are available should you fancy a change. The choice of 13 different watch faces is also a nice touch, giving you a choice between sophisticated timepiece faces and more colourful digital offerings.

Commands are triggered through either scrolling through a series of ‘cards’, launched by swiping upwards from the bottom of the screen, or through Google Voice Search. The voice search is pleasingly accurate, even in crowded environments, and results can be ‘thrown back’ to your phone so you’re able to continue reading on a larger screen. It’s a simple system that looks great and generally works well. I paired the G Watch R with an LG G3, which worked together seamlessly.

Its pedometer is accurate, and being able to change the track you’re listening to via your phone from your wrist is a welcome feature. Sending emails and texts via voice command was a straightforward process, alongside opting to answer incoming calls to your phone.

LG claims that with the Always On screen mode disabled, the 410mAh battery will powe…………… continues on Telegraph.co.uk

LG G Flex 2 release date: LG to launch new phone at the 2015 International CES …
News from ChristianToday:

LG G Flex

When Apple surprisingly announced that the iPhone 6 has a bending feature, Apple followers and non-followers were immediately intrigued by it. But later, the hype died down a bit when reviews came out about the iPhone 6 actually breaking or not going back to its shape once bent. 

What many aren’t aware of is that LG already launched a phone last year that has the ability to bend, the LG G Flex. While it may not have gained that much traction as the iPhone, it certainly has more features worth looking into. 

The LG G Flex has a 6-inch screen and the phone is bendable. It also had a self-healing back that can repair its own minor damage and scratches. But this phone was released in October of 2013 and it’s time for a newer version of it. Thus, LG is said to be getting ready to launch the LG G Flex 2. 

Android Authority reported that the Flex 2 will be more flexible. It will be made of a special hard rubber chassis that can bend up to 90 degrees. But if there’s one thing that really makes this new phone interesting, it is the rumored flexible battery. After all, common…………… continues on ChristianToday

LG G3 Screen Considered Lower Quality than Chinese Entry Phones at 2.5x Price
News from BusinessKorea:

The G3 Screen with LG Electronics’ own application processor (AP) is suffering from sluggish sales, as it is widely acknowledged to deliver low performance for its price. The new handset is even inferior to the X3 with Huawei’s own AP, but the launch price of the G3 Screen is 2.5 times higher.

According to industry sources on Dec. 1, there is growing controversy over low performance of the G3 Screen in online communities for smartphones. A source in the industry said, “LG has never designed its own AP before, but this is too much,” adding, “Chinese entry-level APs are one generation ahead of LG’s AP.””

It has been more than a month since the new model was introduced to the market on Oct. 24, but it has posted a poor sales growth. An industry source said, “From the beginning of sales, more than 250,000 won [US$ 224] of mobile phone subsidies has been injected. Currently, the device can be purchased at around 200,000 won [US$ 179], but sales volume is pretty low.”

The reason for sluggish sales lies in the fact that the G3 Screen equipped with LG’s first AP Nuclun performs poorly compared to prices. Nuclun is an octa-core processor composed of a 1.5 GHz quad-core chip and a 1.2 GHz quad-core chip, developed with an investment of more than 200 billion won (US$ 179 million) over the past two years.

Industry analysts are saying that LG has yet to sol…………… continues on BusinessKorea
