LG was quick enough to shut up all the Pad 8.3 owners who were nagging about LG being slow to update their tablets.
A good step in the right direction for LG. They have been working hard on giving their costumers what they want.

Facebook/ Microsoft Lumia

Microsoft Lumia 640

Those who are looking for quality devices that don’t cost a fortune would do well to check out LG and Microsoft’s latest budget offerings, the LG Magna and Microsoft Lumia 640.

LG announced the Magna in February along with three other mid-range devices, the LG Leon, Joy, and Spirit. The Magna is the top end of the new lineup but is still well and truly designed to be a mid-range handset. Meanwhile, the Microsoft Lumia 640 was announced at MWC 2015, and is Microsoft’s follow up to the Lumia 635.

Here, we compare the two mid-range phones.

Design:
The LG Magna has a slight curve at the back, which makes it very comfortable to hold. The plastic panel has a grated texture, which gives it a non-slippery feel. It measures 5.50 x 2.75 x 0.40 inches and is available in black, gold, and white.

Meanwhile, the Microsoft Lumia 640 takes its design cues from the Nokia Lumia 635, but its corners are slightly more rounded off. The phone also feels slippery due to its plastic back. It measures 5.56 x 2.84 x 0.35 inches and is available in white, blue, black, and or…………… continues on Christian Post

LG G Flex 2 vs Google Nexus 6

LG became the talk of CES 2015 when the tech company unveiled the LG G Flex 2, a phone designed to flex and bend and can self-heal in a matter of seconds. The phone’s innovative design sent tech fans scrambling to know when the device will be available, because aside from its unique form, the phone has better specs than its predecessor.

Meanwhile, Google’s Nexus 6 is just a few months older than the G Flex 2, but the handset’s top of the line specs, big screen and premium build has made it a consistent favorite among Android phone fans.

Here, we compare the two devices:

Design:
The Nexus 6 is Google’s first supersized smartphone, and he phone measures 6.27 x 3.27 x 0.40 inches and weighs 6.49 ounces. The phone has an aluminum frame with a matte, plastic back, has curved edges, and is available in Cloud White and Midnight Blue.

Meanwhile, the LG G Flex 2 is truly one of a kind—it’s a phone with a curved shape, which flattens when it’s pressed down, but springs back to its original shape once pressure has been taken off of it. The phone mea…………… continues on Christian Post

Phone Comparisons: LG G3 vs Samsung Galaxy S6

Phone Comparisons: LG G3 vs Samsung Galaxy S6
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Do we have a good one for you today – the popular LG G3 goes up against the new Samsung Galaxy S6.  Yes, we know that a new LG G4 will be out in April or May and we will certainly compare that model as well, but right now we have to take LG’s flagship and see what kind of job Samsung has done in creating a competing device.

Both of these devices were highly anticipated – the LG G3 because it was to have the first mass-produced QHD display and we were all expecting a full-metal backing in the LG G3 to match up against the popular HTC One M8…one out of two ain’t bad.  And after the poor sales of the Samsung Galaxy S5 in 2014, Samsung was looking to do a complete makeover…and it looks as though they have succeeded.

The LG G3 and Galaxy S6 do share a few things in common – for one, they both use the QHD display resolution, although the G3 uses the LCD technology and the Galaxy S6 uses Samsung’s Super AMOLED technology.  Both devices use 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, although the G3 has external expansion capabilities, whereas the Galaxy S6 has th…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — This is LG’s second attempt at a curved-screen smartphone. This new LG G Flex2 keeps all the good things from the original, and has taken the somewhat unusual design to the next level.

Google 2015 Nexus Phone Likely Exposed In Latest Leaked LG G4 Note Images
News from International Business Times AU:

The Google Nexus 2015 smartphone may still be a toss between the regular LG G4 and the rumoured phablet LG G4 Note but Android fans now have a peek of what could be the device’s final cut. Alleged images of the G4 Note are available online, providing a window of the look, specs and features for the next Nexus.

XDA Developers user s3rv1cet3ch provided to Android Central four images of the G4 Note that apparently is now in the testing phase. The report was not specific if the device is a prototype, meaning changes will still take effect, or it is largely the final build. Most of the revealed specs and features in the picture will be carried over on launch time.

LG signature

True enough, the leaked images showed a device that has the LG trademark. The rear resembles that of the LG G3 – the low speaker placement, the main camera flanked by the LED flash and a sensor plus the back-located keys that doubles as volume rocker and scroll controller.<…………… continues on International Business Times AU

Samsung building a foldable phone, LG on transparent screens

Samsung building a foldable phone, LG on transparent screens
News from GSMArena.com:

Samsung is releasing the occasional flip smartphone, but those are niche products with limited availability and appeal. A Samsung official revealed that the company has a plant to leverage its bendable display technology to create foldable phones.

The official did not provide any more info though if a foldable, flip phone like form factor can be used to provide a large screen in a compact body. While that may sound futuristic, we may see it as early as next year.

The new flexible screen tech has four phases: curved, bent, foldable and rollable. The first two are already a reality, the third one is coming soon while the last one holds promise of displays that are stored like roller blinds.

LG Display has its flexible screens too, though its focus is elsewhere – the company is experimenting with transparent displays. Those will enable augmented reality displays without the need for Google Glass style wearables.

LG already has a promotional prototype ready, however, “it will take some time” until the factories are ready for mass production. The tech is already is some products like luxury cars (for heads-up displays) and refrigerators (to let you see what’s inside while showing ads too).

Anyway, there’s one transparent display phone that we can think of, the

A higher-end LG G4 Note will launch with a metal body, not the LG G4 [RUMOR]
News from Phandroid.com:

It was a little over 2 weeks ago we got a good look at the LG G4 in a few alleged press shots of the device. Like a slightly smaller version of the LG G Flex 2, the phone featured a curved LED display while keeping to LG’s current design language. One of the more interesting parts about rumors of the device is that it would it would feature a metal body — a first for LG on their flagship line. We’re not talking about that faux metal finish of the LG G3 either.

It was an interesting prospect and while plastic definitely has its merits, consumers really seem to have taken a liking to the premium fe…………… continues on Phandroid.com

Metallic Nexus 2015 Phone On Release Date Hinted By Alleged LG G4 Note …
News from International Business Times AU:

If Google plans to go metal for its Nexus 2015 smartphone then the base-model for the device is likely the phablet LG G4 Note. Reports from South Korea indicate that the supersized phone will be wrapped in metal.

According to G4Games, pointing to Korean-language ZDNet Korea as source, LG flagships will flash premium build and designs starting on the second half of 2015. But as the upcoming LG G4 is scheduled to touchdown anytime starting April this year, the device clad in metal is essentially ruled out.

So the best candidate to become the repurposed Nexus 2015 phone, replacing the Motorola Nexus 6, is the rumoured LG phablet that for now goes by the name LG G4 Note. That is if Google will indeed renew its partnership with the South Korean firm for this year’s Nexus smartphone project.

Earlier, reports came out that Google engineers have visited manufacturing facilities owned by LG, sparking assumptions that the next Nexus will again come from the Nexus 4 and 5 maker. Prior to this suggestion, the Internet search giant was reportedly looking on the possibility of collaborating with Huawei for a China-centric Nexus device.

LG G Flex2 review
News from Digital Trends:

Curved shapes are evocative, attractive, tactile, and sometimes even sensual. The G Flex2 is LG’s second curved phone, and while the original stood out visually, it didn’t make our knees go all wobbly when it came to processing power. On paper, the G Flex2 fixes all the complaints about the G Flex. Let’s find out if the phone can live up to expectations this time around.

Hands-on video

Phones don’t get better looking

The G Flex2 feature everyone comments on is the curved screen. It’s not a dramatic curve at just 23 degrees, but it’s noticeable from all angles, and it gives the phone a very individual look. Nobody will mistake this phone for anything else, certainly not an iPhone, and that’s a very welcome thing in today’s oblong block-obsessed phone world.

The G Flex2 cures complaints about the G Flex being all style and no substance

Is it only there for aesthetic reasons? Initially, I didn’t expect it to be anything other than a gimmick, but I was very wrong. The curved screen makes the phone tougher than those with flat screens, and it’s better equipped at absorbing shocks. It also places the microphone closer to…………… continues on Digital Trends

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs LG G Flex 2

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge vs LG G Flex 2
News from TechRadar:

Smartphones have reached the point where designs are more iterative than innovative. While the look and feel changes only slightly on new models each year, manufacturers haven’t done much to wow consumers beyond the traditional rectangular slab of glass, metal and plastic.

LG attempted to shake things up last year with first G Flex, a 6-inch smartphone with a curved display and slightly flexible frame, and Samsung soon followed with their own take on this concept, courtesy of the Galaxy Note Edge, a phablet-sized model featuring a display that wraps around the right side.

These Korean tech titans wasted no time announcing all-new versions of these devices for 2015, and we sat down with both in an effort to determine whether curved and flexible displays actually enhance the experience or are little more than a marketing gimmick.

Just look at those curves

Upcoming LG Phones 2015: New AKA With ‘Animated Eyes’ Hitting More …

Facebook/ LG G Flex 2

LG G Flex 2

Before 2014 ended, LG announced an Android-powered smartphone with a unique feature – animated eyes.

Since its initial launch, the LG AKA has only been available in South Korea. However, it seems LG is looking to make a big splash in the international market as well.

According to a report by Phone Arena, the Android handset will soon become available in the international market. Some countries that will be getting the device in a few weeks include Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore and Turkey.

While the LG AKA may look like an ordinary phone, it transforms instantly when placed on a specially designed phone case. Its main selling point is the animated eyes that appear and “interact” with the consumers.

Some of the things that the “eyes” react on include incoming calls, appointments or meetings, and messages.

For interested buyers, the LG AKA is strictly a midranger, if not an entry-level device. It boasts a 5-inch display with HD or 1280 x 720 resolution, a quad-core CPU clocked at 1.2GHz and a 1.5GB RAM.

Other specs include an 8MP primary shooter at the back and a 2M…………… continues on Christian Post

LG is making the next Nexus phone, apparently
News from Stuff Magazine:

Google’s yearly Nexus smartphone is the flagbearer for the entire Android camp. It’s the first device to land with the latest and greatest version of Google’s mobile OS, and it’s the number one choice for purists.

You could argue that the Nexus 6, with its gargantuan screen and un-Nexus-like price tag has dropped the ball a bit, which is why Google could be going back to LG for its next-gen Android poster child.

The latest whispers from the online rumour mill, courtesy of Korean site eToday, report that Google’s engineers recently visited LG’s headquarters in South Korea to discuss the production of a mystery device known as the N000.

That, apparently, is the codename for the next Nexus, which would be called the Nexus 7 following the current naming scene. Which, as you probably know, is the name of an existing Google tablet. Of course, the triple zeroes could hint at a fresh name, one void of a numbering system altogether. Or not. Who knows! Anything goes in rumour land.
