LG Wine Smart Flip Phone With Android 4.4 KitKat, Safe Keeper Launched

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

LG Wine Smart Flip Phone With Android 4.4 KitKat, Safe Keeper Launched
News from NDTV:

LG has launched a new flip phone, its first in the last 7 years, the Wine Smart.Its arch-rival and fellow South Korean firm Samsung has in the interim released numerous flip phones, such as the SM-G9098, W789, W2014 and the Galaxy Golden.

The LG Wine Smart (LG-F480) is particularly targeted at elderly users, says LG, and is being promoted as a mid-tier offering for the Korean market.

As of now, there is no word about the pricing or availability of the LG Wine Smart flip phone. Considering that the smartphone comes with Korea-specific features, it is unlikely that the flip phone might be announced outside the home country.

Is the LG G3 ‘the best Android phone ever’? Well…

Is the LG G3 ‘the best Android phone ever’? Well…
News from Computerworld:

Plug in, turn on. Veteran Android journalist JR Raphael goes beyond the headlines to serve up a fresh mix of Android news, views, and how-to’s. Try it with margarine for a low-cal treat!

Have you noticed how much smartphone reviewers love superlatives?

Seriously — it’s insane. I’ve lost count of the number of headlines I’ve seen proclaiming the LG G3 to be “the best Android phone ever” and other things along those lines. Some of ‘em even started showing up from U.S. publications before anyone had actually used a U.S. model of the phone (and remember, the international model didn’t fully work on U.S. networks!).

When you follow tech news long enough, it’s really no surprise. Practically every major flagship phone that comes out is

LG’s new flagship G3 phone is good, but lacks pizazz
News from The Seattle Times:

Originally published August 22, 2014 at 3:24 PM | Page modified August 22, 2014 at 5:52 PM

If Samsung represents one extreme in the move to add new bells and whistles to smartphones, LG seems to be aiming for the other end of the spectrum.

In its Galaxy S line of phones, Samsung has taken the kitchen-sink approach each year by adding a host of new features, from new ways to shoot photos to new hardware elements like pulse monitors.

But too often, the add-ons have been either poorly conceived or partly developed.

LG takes the opposite approach. With its new flagship smartphone, the G3, the company focuses on only a handful of new features, most of which are subtle improvements rather than flashy advances.

I like the idea, but I think LG may have carried things too far. The G3 is a good phone, but it’s not exciting.

Like many other Android flagship phones these days, the G3 touts a jumbo-sized screen, a long-lived battery and a fast quad-core processor.

But unlike those phones, the G3’s interface is relatively unmodified from standard Android. And its tweaks — like its three-page home screen that flips like pages in a book — are fairly subtle.

LG has sought to distinguish the G3 not through its interface or the size of its screen but through the resolution of its display. It’s one of the first phones…………… continues on The Seattle Times

Hands on: LG G3 Android smartphone

Hands on: LG G3 Android smartphone
News from Sydney Morning Herald:

LG’s G3 5.5-inch smartphone sporting a Quad HD 2560×1440 IPS LED display.

Large and in charge, LG’s G3 ups the stakes in the Android screen wars.

By my calculations today marks the 1000th Gadgets on the Go post, with the blog kicking off back in 2007 as Apple’s first iPhone hit US shelves and Android was still on the drawing board. Smartphones have come a long way in a short time and triggered a personal tech revolution which belonged in the realm of science fiction only a few years ago.

LG’s 5.5-inch G3 smartphone continues to break new ground, pushing past the 5-inch barrier which would have seen it dubbed a phablet not so long ago. It follows on from last year’s 5.2-inch G2 and is pretty much the upgrade you’d expect – bumping up most items on the spec sheet while also updating to Android 4.4.2.

Since last year we’ve also seen the release of the 5.9-inch LG G Pro 2 and 6-inch

LG G3 review: Good phone, but not a worthy successor to the G2
News from Indian Express:

The LG G3 costs Rs. 47,990 for the 16 GB version and Rs. 50,990 for 32 GB version.

Summary

Anyone looking to upgrade from the superb G2 are in for some disappointment.

Coming a year after the success of the LG G2, the LG G3 was among the most awaited phones of 2014. The phone has thankfully come to India soon after its global launch, indicating that the Korean company has finally woken up to the potential of the Indian smartphone market thanks to the popularity of its Google Nexus 5. But is the LG G3 a worth successor to the G2 and can it be relevant at a time when the Indian market and consumers seem to be veering towards more value for money Android phones like the Asus Zenfone 5 and the Xiaomi MI3.

Specs: 5.5-inch Quad-HD (2560x1440p; 538ppi)| 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor | 3GB RAM | 16GB internal memory + 64GB external | micro SIM | 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, Full HD video recording | 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, DLNA, NFC, Miracast | 3200mAh battery | Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Price: Rs. 47,990 for the 16 GB version and Rs. 50,990 for 32 GB version

Design: The LG G3 has a very simple, but functional design. Like in the G Flex, the volume and power buttons are on the rear flap where your finger naturally rests…………… continues on Indian Express

LG G3 review: the phone every Android OEM should make

LG G3 review: the phone every Android OEM should make
News from Android Community:

Nate Swanner

Latest in their lineup of flagship Android handsets, the LG G3 is one beast of a handset. Packing a big screen into a surprisingly small frame, there are two attractions that everyone keeps chatting about: that screen and the battery life. After toying with the G3 for a few weeks, we’ve drawn our conclusions. Is this the Android phone to beat?

Hardware

We will note, straight away, that we are not testing the US build of the G3. That final US model will be largely (if at all) unchanged, save for the extendable antennae present on our South Korean model.

The G3 makes some interesting compromises. To get thin bezels, they placed the power key and volume rocker on the back. The plastic build of the phone feels anything but cheap, and it’s lightness is a stark contrast to the profile and appearance. We often equate heft to quality, and the LG G3 is both light and premium.

Having the power and volume on the back leaves the sides, top, and bottom relatively blank. There is a Micro USB port on the bottom, along with a headphone jack. A small microphone on the top and bottom of the phone are also there, but other than that — you get a thin, metallic strip breaking up the mostly white body.</…………… continues on Android Community

LG G3 battery: fully up to the challenge
News from androidandme.com:

Without a battery, a phone is nothing. It’s unable to perform any task. Unless, of course, you’re planning to use your phone as a hammer. But anything that requires the phone’s internals to actually work is a no-go, which means that the battery is of great importance on a smartphone. Too often we see high-end smartphones dominating in every aspect but the battery, so in our testing of the LG G3, we were interested to see how its battery performs.

We’re happy to report that the LG G3 is well up to the challenge of keeping itself going. The 3,000mAh battery is built to compensate for the powerhouse specs inside the G3′s body. We found that with moderate usage, it was easy to make it through the day from 7:00AM to about 11:00PM. The LG G3 left us with about 20% battery life at the end of the day, give or take a bit.

Editor’s Note: The review unit we were provided was a Korean LTE-A model. As such, all battery testing was done over Wi-Fi connections. Obviously, battery life will differ when using LTE, but we still felt that it would be important to report battery life based on Wi-Fi.

With a heavier day of usage, including streaming video and some games, the G3′s legs gave out closer to 5:00 or 6:00PM. Still, 11 hours of solid battery life is nothing to scoff at, and is more than we expected from a device like the G3.

What worried us abo…………… continues on androidandme.com

Meet the G3, LG’s new flagship Android phone
News from The Week Magazine:

L

G’s new flagship Android phone, the G3, has been a poorly kept secret. Not only was a lot of information known ahead of its official debut, but screen shots of the actual device also popped up well in advance.

However, it remained to be seen how all its impressive features would fit together, and how the device would feel as a whole. Yesterday, LG finally took the wraps off the G3 and fleshed out the remaining details.

At a San Francisco live-stream of the London event, I was able to get some hands-on time with the new device and see the features in action. The point the company kept hammering home was that it is giving users high-end technology without the complexity. Each feature was mentioned in the context of simplicity and ease of use. While some features are not as simple as advertised, the effort is certainly there.

The highest-resolution screen in the U.S.
One of the headline features is the G3′s super-high-resolution screen. With 2560 x 1440 lines of resolution and 538 pixels per inch, the display is absolutely stunning. It will be the first 2k, or QuadHD, display in the United States when the device launches sometime this summer. Having such a densely packed screen on a mobile device means images pop and animation is extremely…………… continues on The Week Magazine

The first amazing LG phone (at least for me)
News from CNET:

For one CNET editor, the long road that led to LG’s new and promising G3 dates back almost 10 years ago to the still-excellent LG EnV.

The original LG EnV: still one of the best messaging keyboards LG

LG’s new G3 shows that the company is continuing to step up its smartphone game. As a longtime cell phone reviewer, and someone who hates the thought of an Apple-Samsung duopoly, I’m glad to see that happen.

Yet, there’s another reason that I’m pleased. Though LG may have been a little slower to hone its flagship phone skills than some of its rivals — it really hit its smartphone stride in 2012 with the Nexus 4 and the Optimus G — Samsung’s crosstown rival has been producing blockbuster hand…………… continues on CNET

News from Phandroid.com:

After watching as the last of the LG G2′s received their updates to Android 4.4.2 KitKat last week, it’s now time to finish up work on its cousin, the LG G Flex. After the Korean model saw its KitKat upgrade back towards the end of March, followed closely by AT&T’s version on April 17th, Sprint has announced that they’ve begun rolling out the latest version of Android for their model as well.

LG G3 leaks in the wild, offers first look at new rear-mounted button design
News from Phandroid.com:

It’s not much, but it appears as if we may finally have our first real look at the LG G3. An alleged leaked picture of the device in the wild is giving us a pretty clear look at the back of the device, showing off LG’s trademark rear-facing button setup. We fear the new buttons — which appear to be much more flat than they were on the G2 — could make it difficult to feel around for the buttons solely by touch, but we do like the new aluminum accents.

If you’re wondering what the black hole is on the side of the camera (opposite from the LED flash), that’s a rear facing IR blaster, a setup we also saw on the LG G Flex (image here). On a more personal note, I recently found myself moving back continues on Phandroid.com

LG G Flex review: World’s first curved smartphone is in good shape
News from The National:

When the regional manager of LG first demonstrated the G Flex phone, he did so with a bang, quite literally. Casually placing the phone screen side down, he punched it with great force, to show just how flexible and durable it was, while unintentionally showing that the world’s first curved phone can also be used as a weapon.

Despite the spectacle, it still did not occur to me why anyone would need a curved phone, but after a week with the device it became clear.

If you like carrying your phone in the back pocket of your jeans, the G Flex slips in comfortably, without bulging out or poking into your posterior when you sit. It really is quite ergonomic when it comes to this aspect and given its ability to withstand a Korean punch, it should also withstand your weight.

As smartphones are becoming increasingly larger in size, those with smaller heads are struggling to be heard when making phone calls. A friend of mine who recently switched to the Nokia Lumia 1520 has resorted to…………… continues on The National

Android this week: Amazon phone soon; LG G Watch priced; Galaxy S5 reviewed
News from GigaOM:

Apr. 12, 2014 – 6:20 AM PDT Apr. 12, 2014 – 6:20 AM PDT

When you think of Android, you probably don’t think of Amazon. You should. Amazon has slowly built up a product line off of the open Android software, starting first with Kindle Fire tablets and more recently with its Fire TV set-top box. The third pillar of “fire” is shaping up to be Amazon’s smartphone with an expected June announcement.

There’s no official name for the handset yet — I like the Fire Fone, but that’s just me — which has long been rumored. Sources told the Wall Street Journal this week that Amazon’s phone will go on sale three months after its introduction, meaning a September launch month. Few details have leaked, save for the recurring rumor of multiple eye- and head-tracking cameras in the phone and a glasses-free 3-D screen.The former makes more sense to me than the latter as Amazon can better learn where consumers are looking when browsing products on Amazon’s website.

Best Android Phones of 2014: LG G2, Nexus 5, Galaxy S4, HTC One, and Moto …
News from Latin Post:

First Posted: Apr 08, 2014 05:11 PM EDT

There are a lot of brands for Android phone users to choose from and each one is seemingly better than the other. Here we compare five leading Android phones, LG G2, Nexus 5, Galaxy S4, HTC One and Moto X in terms of processing power, screen resolution and camera quality.

Processing Power

In this aspect, almost all of the models are at the same level as they have really strong processing power. However, Nexus 5 and LG G2 have the upper hand as they make use of the Snapdragon 800 processors. They are slightly better than the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 used for both the HTC One and Galaxy S4. LG G2 is deemed to be the fastest device and is more or less the winner in this factor. Moto X on the other hand is quite a unique choice since it has a different approach. It makes use of an X8 chipset with Snapdragon S4 Pro inside. There are certain dedicated processors for various controls.

LG, Motorola, Google Android and Windows Phone all gained market share in major smartphone markets, while Apple lost ground, according to new Kantar WorldPanel figures.

The figures show Android represents 58.5% of the Australian smartphone market in the quarter to February, within the margin of error of the 58.8% share it claimed for the same quarter last year.

Interestingly, BlackBerry gained some ground in the Australian market, albeit off a low base, growing from 0.4% a year earlier.

Windows Phone also grew in Australia, increasing from 3.5% to 5%. Meanwhile, Apple saw its Australian market share drop from 34.8% to 33.9%.

Globally, Android reported market share gains in Germany (71.9% to 75.7%), France (61.9% to 67.7%), Italy (58.5% to 67.6%), the US (51.1% to 55%), China (71% to 80.3%) and Japan (43.7% to 44.8%). The only declines were in Britain (58.3% to 54%) and Span (92% to 88%).

Android Phone Comparisons: LG G2 VS HTC One M8
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

 

Introduction

This comparison has an older face, the LG G2 from the end of September, and a new face, the just released HTC One M8.  I know there will be the naysayers that will say WHY did you pair the new HTC One M8 with this older model – well, I will tell you.  The LG G2 and the HTC One M8 are actually very close in specifications and the G2 has stood the test of time – there are many people who just will not give up their LG G2, and that speaks volumes.  Both devices use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor – true the one in the HTC One is overclocked, but they are not all that much different.  They both have 2GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage, although the HTC One M8 does have room for a microSD card for additional storage. Both have non-removable batteries. Take a look at their specifications below and then we’ll talk about the differences between both devices before we pick a winner.
