LG will turn every new G3 phone into a VR headset, free of charge
News from Christian Science Monitor:

Care for a virtual reality headset with your new smart phone?

That’s what LG is promising. The Korean tech company is the latest to jump in on the virtual reality craze, offering customers a free VR for G3 virtual reality headset when they purchase an LG G3 smart phone. The plastic headset uses the G3 as its screen, holding the phone close to your eyes to pull off the VR effect. Though the device won’t offer too much innovation-wise, it indicates the coming surge of virtual reality headsets, led by the hype around Oculus Rift and Microsoft’s HoloLens.

The device is partly thanks to Google. The VR for G3 headset is based off downloadable DIY virtual reality head…………… continues on Christian Science Monitor

LG G2 vs LG G3: why give up on a good flagship smartphone?
News from Geek Snack:

The LG G2 is a rather old phone compared to what we have on the market right now. That doesn’t mean that it is outdated, as the LG G2 remains one of the best and one of the favorite flagships of many Android fans around the globe. The handset was launched in September 2013, and since then we’ve seen a lot from the South Korean company, most notably the LG G2’s successor, the LG G3. These two flagships quickly became crowd favorites, and the original model has held its spot as a such for a long time. There still are thousands of LG G2 owners out there who are completely in love with the phone, and they swear it performs just as well as other flagships launched in 2014. Now the purpose of this comparison is to see what the company did to upgrade the LG G2, and how the LG G3 might be worth the upgrade.

We’re going to look at design a bit, but mainly we will be focusing on display quality, battery life and average performance. What anybody should keep in mind is that both battery life and performance depend very much on the user. That means that if a phone will last 3 days with me and has spotless performance in my hands, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will behave the same way for you. Each person chooses to use their ph…………… continues on Geek Snack

LG G4 Rumors Continue, Many Excited for New Phone!

LG G4 Rumors Continue, Many Excited for New Phone!
News from Air Herald:

The LG G4 is looking more and more interesting. Although LG hasn’t officially announced the phone yet, we are getting peak after peak of the device because it appears to be going through the certification process at many agencies. The LG H811 has been certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, which says that the smartphone has been Wi-Fi certified.

The LG H811 is speculated to be the LG G4 for AT&T. Sometimes wireless carriers get slightly different versions of phones, which could be the case here with the LG G4. The latest rumors point the phone to having either a 1440p or 3K (2880×1620) 5.5-inch display. One reason the rumors could be conflicting is that LG could be offering multiple versions of the LG G4 to different carriers. Last year they were one of the first smartphone manufacturers to come to the market with a 1440p screen, so they could be looking to do it again with a 3K screen and the LG G4.

As far as a release date goes, the LG G4 may make an appearance at the MWC, but we wouldn’t get our hopes up. It is more likely that the device is launched in May similar to the LG G3 last year. The LG G3 ended up being one of the best smartphones of last year. It came in at a lower price point than a majority of the other 1440p phones, and had better specs too. The phone was well received by reviewers, but it hasn’t so…………… continues on Air Herald

LG G3 Android 5.0 Lollipop Update Spotted Landing In The Middle East In …
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

There is little doubt that the last few months have been the Lollipop months of the Android era. Ever since Google unveiled Android 5.0 Lollipop and released the source code to AOSP, everyone has been obsessed with when Lollipop will land on their devices. In fact, it has not only been the device owners that have been obsessed with Lollipop but also the manufacturers. Most of the big names of the android world were quick to jump on each others bandwagon and all announced a similar time-frame for when they will release the android update to all their devices. As such, we now find ourselves back in among Lollipop hype again now, with all those carriers working hard to make sure their promises are kept…to the best of their ability.

One of those manufacturers who were quick out of the door with their Lollipop update was LG. The other South Korean manufacturer was quick to push out Lollipop to the LG G3, although it still has not reached all devices, on all carriers, in all regional areas. Well, the very latest on the onwards LG G3 Lollipop saga is that the update has now started rolling out in the Middle East.

Phone Comparisons: LG G Flex 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S5
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 Samsung Galaxy S5.  Can the new and improved G Flex 2 with its curved body, battery and display beat out the venerable Galaxy S series number 5?  Even though these two devices are close to a year apart, they both have the same FHD display, available internal memory expansion, great cameras, and about the same battery size and even physical size.

Both devices come with the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, a microUSB port for charging and data transfer, and both even have an IR Blaster – most likely because both LG and Samsung are heavily into Smart HDTVs.

Why You Should Wait for the LG G4
News from Gotta Be Mobile:

Over the past month more rumors have continued to surface about the new LG G4, and it will be a smartphone worth waiting for. Last year the impressive LG G3 was arguably one of the best Android smartphones released, and had some of the best specs available. However, the LG G3 is a smartphone that is now a year old, and about to be replaced.

Last year, LG announced the all-new LG G3 at the end of May, but it took well over a month to finally arrive for US buyers in July. The phone was very popular for having a stunning 5.5-inch display with extremely sleek bezels, an improved camera, and it ran Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. That said, something better is coming soon.

Phone Comparisons: LG G Flex 2 vs Meixu MX4 Pro
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 new Meizu MX4 Pro.  Both smartphones are updates to popular devices in their own right, but this time around, LG and Meizu increased the specifications and came out with very desirable and competitive devices.  Both devices have the look and feel of premium hardware – the LG G Flex 2 has the curved body and self-healing back while the Meizu MX4 Pro has a full aluminum frame and a back that looks like rounded metal, but is really plastic coated to look like metal – ala LG G3.

Even though LG comes from Korea and Meizu comes from China, these devices do share a little bit of common ground.  They both have the same 5.5-inch size display, which makes them almost identical in physical size as well.  They both use an octa-core processor clocked at the same speed, they both utilize 3GB of RAM and they both have a 32GB internal storage model. They both have the usual suspects – Dual-Band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and a microUSB port for charging and data transfer.

Please look at the detailed Specifications and feature sheet below and there you will be able to see how they compare spec-by-spec.  After that, we will take a closer look at the individual devices, weigh their pros and cons, and decide which one of these great smartphones will win this comparison.

New LG Phone Certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, Could This Be the LG G4 for a US …
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

The run up to the announcement of a new phone is always an exciting game.  First we usually get word of the device being made in the first place.  Then specs leak, followed by possible footage of the device via Mr. Blurrycam shots in a random location, followed of course by more concrete evidence.  One of the final processes a phone or tablet have to go through is a set of certifications by various groups out there.  The FCC is one in the US, and there are many other organizations like it throughout the world, and the Wi-Fi Alliance is another.  Certification by the Wi-Fi Alliance ensures interoperability with the various Wi-Fi standards out there in the world.

Now it looks like some new mystery LG phone has passed through the Wi-Fi Alliance’s tests and has achieved certification from the organization.  What this device might be is a mystery but there are plenty of clues left behind in the process that point us in the right direction.  First this particular phone ships with Android L as listed in the certification, meaning it’s not likely some budget phone that LG’s trying to ship with KitKat and call it a day.  Many phones will…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

Boy, do we have a good one for you today – the new LG G Flex 2 takes on the venerable Motorola Moto X 2014.  We have two devices that look like they are curved in the back, but only the G Flex 2 is truly the curved device – body, battery and display.  Both devices feel great in your hand and both devices are well built with a premium look and feel.  How well does the $ 99 Moto X stack up against the $ 300 LG G Flex 2…it may surprise you.

The two devices actually do have a few things in common – they both use the OLED technology…just different types and both use a Snapdragon processor…just different models.  They both offer a 32GB storage model, but the Moto X does not offer any expansion options.  The both use a 13MP sensor for their main camera and even the front-facing cameras (FFC) are similar at 2MP and 2.1MP.  They are even very close to the same size, with the G Flex 2 just slightly larger.  Both have the usual suspects – Dual-Band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC capable, and both have a microUSB port for charging and data transfers.  They both offer Quick Charge and they both are running 5.0.1 Lollipop.

LG G4 News: Trademark Filed For LG Phones, Specs Point to 5.5 Display With …
News from Christian Post:

Facebook

LG may have inadvertently confirmed its upcoming flagship phone the LG G4, as well as five other future phones, while more rumors about the handset are making its way online.

The LG G3 was released in May 2014 and was positively received in the smartphone market alongside heavyweights such as the Galaxy S5 and the iPhone 6. This time LG is reportedly stepping it up with its upcoming LG G4, as well as around six years’ worth of flagship phones.

Reports have come in that the United States Patent and Trademark Office granted the South Korean company the rights to trademark the LG G3, LG G4, LG G5, LG G6, LG G7, LG G8 and LG G9.

So far LG has kept mum with the successor to the LG G3, but now it seemed it really is coming, as well as five more flagship phones in the future for that matter.

LG was already said to be passing on a reveal of the LG G4 during the upcoming Mobile World Congress in Spain in March, and rumors are instead pointing to a reveal sometime in the second quarter of the year. The delay was allegedly to spend more time optimizing the device instead of releasing it immediately.

As for the specs of the LG G4, rumors are pointing to…………… continues on Christian Post

LG is preparing for a lot more G phones
News from TechRadar:

We’re still waiting for LG to announce the LG G4, but the Korean company is about five steps ahead of us.

LG was just granted trademarks for a wide range of future G-branded flagships, including the LG G3, LG G4, LG G5, LG G6, LG G7, LG G8, and LG G9.

LG’s 2015 flagship phone will feature an insane 3K resolution display
News from BGR:

If you thought that 2K resolution is a bit too much for a smartphone featuring a display that’s barely bigger than 5 inches diagonally, then you might be shocked to learn handset makers aren’t stopping there. MyLGPhones has discovered a file on LG’s website that seems to indicate the upcoming LG G4’s display will have a 3K resolution.

LG G4′s appeal will be all about design and the camera
News from TechRadar:

Making a phone stand out isn’t easy, but for the LG G4 the design and camera are going to be its key draws.

During its recent earnings call, LG claimed that its upcoming LG G4 flagship Android phone will separate itself with these handset design and camera tech elements.

Your first assumption on the design front might be a move to a metal phone shell, but don’t be too hasty.

The G4 sibling LG G Flex 2 has already been officially announced, and bears the same plastic outer we usually see in LG phones.

A self-healing back, seen in the original G Flex, is one possible solution, while LG’s signature rear buttons are likely to allow LG to maintain an incredibly skinny bezel for an all-screen front-on look.

Lights, camera, action

And for the camera? Rumours indicate the LG G4 will have a 16-megapixel sensor with optical image stabilisation.

Quite how such a setup separates the G4 from the pack remains a mystery.
