New Nexus phone might have separate LG and Huawei models, suggests report
News from Stuff Magazine:

It may be some time before we know anything: the Motorola-made Nexus 6 just released in October, and it seems unlikely that we’ll see another model before autumn. And whatever comes of this, it’s unlikely to be called the “Nexus 7,” seeing as Google and Asus already released a pair of tablets under that name. It’ll be time to finally shake up the naming scheme, it seems.

Splitting the annual Nexus release between two different handsets would be new, but there’s sense to be made here. After all, the Nexus 6 opted to be big and expensive, while previous Nexus phones aimed to deliver flagship quality at more approachable prices. Having a pricey flagship and a less-equipped contemporary would potentially appease more consumers.

LG G Flex 2 Review: Innovative And Powerful But With Some Flaws

LG G Flex 2 Review: Innovative And Powerful But With Some Flaws
News from Forbes:

The first LG G Flex 2 was an interesting phone. Seen by most people as just a gimmick its curved design and “self-healing” case was an interesting move for LG. I have to say though, not only did I love the first generation Flex, I also appreciate the fact that LG tries to do things a bit differently.

The second Flex is another interesting phone, and I’m pleased to say that LG has really tried to address some of the complaints I had about the first generation model. The screen is a new model, with a much improved resolution of 1080×1920. That gives the handset a more high-end look, although it falls short of some of the other flagships with their quad-HD resolutions.

For me, the big question about the G Flex 2 is how good it is as a phone. The curve, scratch resistance and bendability is really a secondary issue.

You can bend it

Let’s be honest, who cares if you can bend a phone. There is no one who needs to bend a phone – beyond those who made iPhone 6 bendgate videos – and it’s unlikely to appeal on this basis. What is perhaps relevant is that the bendability of the G Flex 2 means that it does actually make for a pretty rugged phone. Put it in any pocket, sit on it, and it will almost certainly survive.

LG’s G Flex 2 is an odd idea, but…………… continues on Forbes

LG’s Four New Phones, Premium Features at a Medium Price
News from Small Business Trends:

Very soon, some major smartphone manufacturers are going to release new models of their flagship devices.

LG is getting a jump on them by announcing four new LG phones. And the company is hoping to attract customers with some mid-range price tags on those phones.

The company says that the Magna, Spirit, Leon, and Joy smartphones will be officially unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress conference. That’s where a few other companies are expected to make a splash with new devices.

LG offers a sneak peak at its new LG phones ahead of MWC. While others go high-end, the company is banking on an audience with a restricted budget.

Juno Cho, LG’s president and CEO, says in a statement on the company’s website:

“For millions of consumers around the world, the deciding factor on which smartphone to buy isn’t how fast or how big it is but how balanced it is. With our new mid-range smartphones, more and more customers will be looking to LG for their next handsets.”

News from The Next Web:

Ahead of the Mobile World Congress trade show, LG has unveiled an LTE variant of its fashionable Watch Urbane that will support calls over VoLTE without a phone, as well as NFC payments.

Unlike the Android Wear-based original, the LG Watch Urbane LTE will feature a proprietary OS that the company says is not webOS, which runs its smart TVs and was shown off on an Audi watch. It also has a walkie-talkie feature for group voice chats as well as an SOS button to quickly place a call to your contacts in case of an emergency.

It will also sport sensors for GPS and fitness tracking, as well as atmospheric pressure and heart rate monitoring. The watch will also support translate foreign languages via voice recognition.

Selfie wars: LG takes on rivals with new phones

Selfie wars: LG takes on rivals with new phones
News from CNBC:

In the global smartphone market, selfie wars are heating up.

Korean electronics giant LG has unveiled a range of mid-tier smartphones designed with “high quality selfies in mind,” as device makers battle for camera superiority.

The four devices – named Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy – are curved with screen sizes ranging from 4 inches on the Joy model, to 5 inches on the Magna.

But LG, like others over the past year, is pushing one of the phones’ features in particular: the ability to take selfies.

The Magna handset has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies, and all of the devices have a feature enabling users to take pictures with a simple hand gesture. LG said it had extended the distance at which the camera can recognize the gestures to 1.5 meters, meaning users could attach a “selfie stick” and trigger the camera from further away.

Analysts said that over the past year, the front-facing camera has become an increasingly important differentiator for smartphone makers, but it is becoming tough to stand out from the crowd.

“We have seen a big jump in megapixels and quality on this camera and it is one way that device makers are looking to differentiate their products,” Ian Fogg, head of mobile at IHS, told CNBC by phone.

“But pretty much every handset maker has front-facing cameras designed f…………… continues on CNBC

News from PC Pro:

LG may well be unleasing its new flagship smartphone, the LG G4, at Mobile World Congress, but ahead of the March show it’s announced that it’ll be launching four new mid-range smartphones.

Known as the Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy, LG’s new smartphones build on “LG’s design language to bring optimised performance and effortless user experience to a broader range of consumers,” says an LG press release. PR-speak aside, this means these four new phones, available in both 4G and 3G versions, will be built to premium specifications, but offered at affordable prices.

The Magna features a 5in HD display with 294ppi, a 1.2GHz Quad-core processor, 8-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera, 8GB of internal storage, and 1GB of RAM. It comes with a 2,540mAh removable battery, placing it in a similar range to the upcoming Samsung S6 in terms of capacity.

South Korean electronics company LG has recently been making a splash in the smartphone arena. While its share of the market is nowhere near the levels held by Apple and Samsung, LG Android-based smartphones have found their niche among specific users worldwide.

LG smartphones have unique features such as the Knock Code, which allows users to lightly knock on their screens in user-defined patterns to unlock their smartphones. LG has also started using the latest version of Android, Android 5.0 Lollipop, in the devices that it manufactures.

LG G Flex 2 Is The World’s Fastest Phone, Annihilates Samsung’s Note 4 and …
News from Forbes:

On Wednesday I picked up my review sample of the LG G Flex 2. This is the second time I’ve used the phone, the first was at a pre-brief meeting in Las Vegas for CES. My initial reaction to the phone was “wow”. The reason for that was because I had used the original G Flex, and really liked it, despite it being somewhat impractical in size. But the new phone, it’s much improved, and it has far wider consumer appeal too.

But I’m not here today to fully review the phone, I need to spend longer with it first. What I have done is spend a little time with benchmarking app to see just how fast this phone is. I am, it has to be said, rather against benchmarks because I think they don’t express any real-world facts. But the G Flex 2 is the first phone with the controversial Snapdragon 810 system-on-a-chip, and I wanted to have a look into the overheating issue, and see how well it performs.

From what I’ve seen,  according to the benchmarking tools I used. In every test (with one minor 64bit hiccup) the phone beats both the Note 4 and Galaxy S5 as well as, with 3DMark, the iPhone 6.

News from LG G Flex2 review: This is what the original should have been – Engadget:

“They’re a gimmick. They’re a terrible idea. They’re not going anywhere.”

Naysayers have been doing their thing since the notion of a curved smartphone made the leap from a nutty concept to bona fide market fad, and they’re not going to stop any time soon. Neither are LG and Samsung, for that matter, who squared off in late 2013 with — what else? — a pair of curved phones. Neither the G Flex nor the Galaxy Round were critical or commercial hits, but they made great stepping stones as both companies tried to convince the world that curved phones were the next big thing.

News from LG G Flex 2 upgrades the curved phone, but it’s on the slow side – Mashable:

What’s This?

It looks like curved phones are here to stay. The first curved phones debuted in 2013, a product of flexible displays and the desperation of smartphone manufacturers to differentiate. The LG G Flex was among them.

It was also a gigantic underpowered beast of a phone, and although its curved screen could turn heads, it couldn’t turn a so-so device into a good one. The curve arguably provided some advantages, but it was hard to see them through the clumsy overall experience.

Smartphones will look the same for years, says LG
News from TechRadar:

LG may have bent over backwards to bring the world flexible smartphones, but when it comes to further innovation on current form factors, the Korean manufacturer shrugs off any notion that something cool is on the immediate horizon.

TrustedReviews today published curious comments from an LG executive that shed light on why new handsets like the LG G Flex 2 might be about as cool as smartphones get for the time being.

LG Director of Corporate Communications Ken Hong summed up the dilemma by proclaiming, “I don’t think we can do much with form factor beyond this at this moment,” adding “the design of phones is restricted by the technology of our component suppliers.”

In fact, even a device like the G Flex 2 is ultimately hindered by how fast suppliers can…………… continues on TechRadar

New LG G3 Cell Phone Accessory Brings Virtual Reality Attachment to the …
News from Latin Post:

First Posted: Feb 17, 2015 12:04 PM EST

LG will start offering a virtual reality attachment to new buyers of the LG G3 smartphone.

Mashable reports the gadget is very similar to Google’s Cardboard attachment. The user looks through the attachment and can see virtual reality images displayed right on the G3′s screen.

The LG G3 smartphone has a Quad HD display, something that very few phones can say they have. This display makes it perfect for using a virtual reality attachment because of the amount of pixels displayed. Quad HD has 3.7 million pixels and since users of virtual reality attachments are only about one inch from the screen, they will need to see as many pixels as possible.

LG’s virtual reality headset is a simple piece of plastic that attaches to the LG G3. The volume and power buttons are conveniently located on the bottom of the G3 making the usage of the virtual reality attachment easier.

Phone Comparisons: LG G Flex 2 vs Xiaomi Mi4 FDD-LTE

Phone Comparisons: LG G Flex 2 vs Xiaomi Mi4 FDD-LTE
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Do we have a good one for you today – the new LG G Flex 2 goes up against the newest revamp of the Xiaomi Mi4…the FDD-LTE model.  Both smartphones offer up a solid build quality and feel great in your hand.  The Xiaomi Mi4 uses a full metal frame and trim with a plastic back, while the LG G Flex 2 has a curved body, battery and display with an improved self-healing back.  The young Xiaomi has already overtaken Samsung as the number one brand of smartphones in China, so they will soon be a force to be reckoned with in the US when they start marketing a smartphone with all US 4G LTE channels.

These two devices do not have very much in common – they both come with 16GB of internal storage, but only the G Flex 2 has room for expansion, although Xiaomi does promise a 64GB version is coming soon.  Both main cameras use a 13MP sensor and a dual LED flash, but then they part their ways.  The batteries are almost identical in size and they both have the usual suspects of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a microUSB port for charging and data transfer, an FM Radio and IR Blaster – both LG and Xiaomi also make HDTVs.

Do we have a good one for you today – the new curved LG G Flex 2 goes up against the all metal Huawei Ascend Mate 7.  Both devices have nothing to apologize for in the looks department – the G Flex 2 has its curved body, battery and display and the Ascend Mate 7 has its small bezels and metal backing – giving both devices a solid build and a premium look.

These two devices do have a few things in common – they both are considered a large, or phablet style smartphone.  They both use an Octa-Core processor and 2GB of RAM with 16GB of internal storage, although both models include a microSD care slot to add additional storage.  Both devices also have a 13MP sensor for the main camera and the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, a speaker on the back panel and a microUSB port for charging and data transfer.
