LG G3 Beat: An Underpowered mini?
News from Indiatimes.com:

by Rutu Ladage , IndiaTimes | September 18, 2014, 2:00 pm IST

What is it that makes LG G3 ‘the LG G3′? It’s the looks, the design and the all new Laser Auto Focus camera. And while LG has launched multiple sub-variants of the LG G3, looks like LG G3 Beat is the official ‘mini’ version though if you look at specifications, the phone is not that ‘mini’ at all! But with half the specs of the lG G3 at half the price, this is the closest LG G3 variants have come to a miniature so far.

LG G3 Beat

LG G3 Beat comes with a 5-inch display though forget QuadHD, you do not even get an FHD on this one. The LG G3 Beat comes with a regular HD display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and 293ppi. Clearly, LG is not banking on their display power for the budget G3. The processor power is also halved and the G3 Beat sports a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm processor with 1GB RAM.

LG Electronics posts loss after EU fine

LG Electronics posts loss after EU fine
News from Financial Times:

LG Electronics, the world’s second-largest television maker by revenue, reported an unexpected loss for the fourth quarter as a big fine in the EU for price-fixing outweighed an improved performance in its mobile phone business.

The South Korean company suffered a net loss of Won468bn ($ 432m) in the October-December period, widening from a Won112bn loss a year earlier.

In December, LG, which derives about half of its sales from TVs, was fined €492m by the EU antitrust regulator as part of a record combined €1.47bn price fixing penalty on cathode-ray tube TV makers including Philips, Panasonic and Toshiba.

The profit margin at LG’s TV business shrank to 0.3 per cent in the fourth quarter from 0.8 per cent in the third quarter due to slowing…………… continues on Financial Times

Apple Ousts Samsung As No.1 Mobile Maker In US In Q4 2012 — Taking …
News from TechCrunch:

Apple took the title of largest mobile maker by volume in the U.S. in Q4 2012, according to Strategy Analytics, which said Cupertino rose to the top of the U.S. phone maker charts for the first time ever — taking a record 34 per cent market share, and shipping an estimated 17.7 million units in the quarter. Samsung came second, with a 32.3 per cent share, shipping 16.8 million smartphones. Third place went to LG — but the company was far behind Apple and Samsung, with only a nine per cent share, and shipments of 4.7 million units.

However, despite losing out to Apple in Q4, Samsung came out on top in the U.S. for the full year 2012 — taking a 31.8 per cent share of the market vs Apple’s 26.2 per cent. LG took 12.3 per cent for the full year.

Strategy Analytics said generous carrier subsidies and extensive marketing of the new iPhone 5 model helped Apple to claim the U.S. mobile crown in Q4 — taking the title from Samsung which had held it since 2008. Samsung still put in a good performance in the fourth quarter, according to the analyst — which noted that its market share rose five points from a year earlier. However this increase was “not enough to hold off a surging Apple”, it said.

As for LG, while it remains the third largest player in the U.S. it has struggled to compete with “an Apple…………… continues on TechCrunch

What do You Want to See in the Next Nexus Phone?
News from Droid Life:

With Apple’s big event out of the way, our focus should now return to what we may see in November or December of this year from Google. Yes, I’m talking about the next Nexus phone. Rumors have led us to believe that LG, Samsung and Sony will all produce a Nexus phone. If Google sticks to their schedule from the last couple of years, we could see these devices by mid-November or early December. That’s only a couple of months away.

It was about this time last year that early rumors surfaced for the Galaxy Nexus, so it’s probably safe to say that we could start hearing Nexus talk again any day. Until that happens, it’s time to toss out your predictions or must-have lists. Many of you won’t buy another phone unless it’s a Nexus, so let’s talk about what it would have to be in order for you to bite.

Do you want Samsung to produce a Galaxy Nexus 2 with the same form factor, but new processor, camera, and other insides? Can LG win you over at all any more? Their new Optimus G is supposed to be a beast, so what if they turn that into a Nexus? And Sony, can they take their stylish hardware and steal your vote by putting stock Android on it?

Let’s do this –…………… continues on Droid Life

Samsung Supplies Apple With IPad Screen After LG-Sharp Miss

Samsung Supplies Apple With IPad Screen After LG-Sharp Miss
News from San Francisco Chronicle:

(Updates with share prices in the sixth paragraph.)

March 14 (Bloomberg) — Samsung Electronics Co. will supply the screen for Apple Inc.’s new iPad after LG Display Co. and Sharp Corp. didn’t meet the U.S. company’s quality requirements, according to an analyst with iSuppli.

Samsung, the world’s top flat-panel maker, currently is the sole vendor of the display for the 9.7-inch, touch-screen device, said Vinita Jakhanwal, a senior manager at iSuppli, a unit of Englewood, Colorado-based IHS Inc. The new tablet goes on sale March 16.

The supply deal deepens Apple’s partnership with Samsung, which already makes the chips that power the iPhone and iPad, even as the companies sue each other around the world regarding patents. Apple unveiled a new version of the iPad last week that features a sharper display and faster processor to fend off growing competition from products including Samsung’s Galaxy Tab.

Steve Park, a Seoul-based spokesman for Apple; Jason Kim, a Seoul-based spokesman for Samsung; Claire Ohm, a Seoul-based spokeswoman for LG Display; and Miyuki Nakayama, a spokeswoman for Osaka, Japan-based Sharp, declined to comment.

“The display specifications on the new iPad are very demanding in terms of the very high resolution,” Jakhanwal…………… continues on San Francisco Chronicle

Orphanage probe: HC pulls up LG for okay over phone
News from Indian Express:

Censuring the Delhi Lieutenant-Governor for “telephonically” approving a decision to set up an inquiry commission to look into the affairs of Arya Orphanage and other institutions following reports of alleged cases of sexual abuse, the Delhi High Court on Monday remarked the L-G must realise “he is not just a figurative head who would ceremoniously attend parties” and should have “applied his mind” on the basis of the relevant material.

The court questioned if the facts with respect to the “number of hours the L-G worked in his office and the time he spent socialising in public” could be brought out in public.

A bench headed by Justice Pradeep Nandarajog tore into the “decision-making process” adopted by L-G Tejinder Khanna while granting his approval to initiate inquiry against five institutions, two of which approached the court saying they had distinct identities and were unrelated to Arya Orphanage and two other children’s homes running from its Daryaganj complex.

As per a note adduced in the High Court by government counsel S D Salwan, the L-G wrote that he had given his approval on the basis of his telephonic conversation with the Chief Secretary.

The bench, which had asked the counsel to put before them all material on the basis of which the L-G had signed the notification, was miffed with this disclosure. “What is meant by the fact t…………… continues on Indian Express

LG Spectrum Review: Initial Impressions (Video)
News from TechCrunch:

Let me just start by saying that so far, I’m not a fan. But, these are just initial impressions so we’ll see how my relationship with the Spectrum progresses over time.

Sure, the LG Spectrum has a stunning 4.5-inch 720p display, Verizon 4G LTE, and all the innards of what could be a great smartphone. But so far I’m not ready to call it a great smartphone.

There are two very fundamental issues that I have with the Spectrum. The first is that it feels awful and plastic-y in the hand. It’s a pretty sizeable phone, but has no weight to back up a premium feel. And even worse, the battery door (which comprises the majority of the phone) is made of this weak, patterned plastic. It scratches easily, doesn’t take prints well, and shines in all the wrong ways.

The second major issue I have with the Spectrum is that LG UI is awful, both aesthetically and in use. Though I’m told by LG that it’s a light overlay, it clearly slows down the system. Then let’s add to that the fact that the UI doesn’t add anything in terms of design or attention to detail. At least in my own opinion, everything’s a bit too bubbly and round for my tastes. I do like that apps are categorized by default, though.

And if we’re talking about a…………… continues on TechCrunch
