LG G3 is launching in Canada on August 1st

LG G3 is launching in Canada on August 1st
News from Canada.com:

LG has announced that its latest flagship phone, the LG G3, is launching in Canada on August 1, 2014.

Rogers, Bell, MTS, SaskTel and Videotron will all be carrying the phone. Tbooth, The Source, Wireless Wave, Wireless Etc and Wow mobile will also be selling the phone.

The LG G3 supports LTE and reportedly features a less bloatware filled experience than what was present on LG’s G2, a phone that was only launched approximately six months ago. LG has improved the smartphone’s build quality and developed a better auto-focus mechanism for the phone’s 13 mega-pixel camera. The G3 also features the latest version of Android 4.4.2 giving the operating system a simpler, more flattened look.

The smartphone’s 5.5-inch screen features an extremely high 2560×1440 resolution display and a 3,000mAh battery, hopefully improving the G3′s battery life slightly over the G2. The phone also comes equipped with a 2.5Ghz Snapdragon 801 processor and 3 GBs of RAM. Unlike the Nexus 4 or 5 Google branded LG smartphone, the G3 has a Mi…………… continues on Canada.com

The LG G3 Review
News from AnandTech:

While the enthusiast segment is no stranger to LG smartphones, for the most part LG hasn’t received nearly the amount of attention that Samsung has. At first, it doesn’t make much sense. After all, LG is almost as big as Samsung. Both are chaebols, with enormous resources and power that few other companies have. Starting from the Optimus G, it seems that LG has shipped some of the best hardware in the industry, leveraging all the branches of the company from LG Innotek to LG Display to make a product that was easily equal to or better than the competition at the time.

One of the real issues that LG faced was a credibility gap. After the Optimus 2X and 4X HD, LG simply lacked credibility amongst the enthusiast audience. Without this audience and without the marketing push that other OEMs had, LG phones simply didn’t sell. Fortunately, things have gotten better since those days. The G2 brought significant attention to LG phones, and if anything, LG has been the sleeping giant in the industry. LG’s displays have been some of the best in the industry, and as an Android OEM they’ve consistently executed well on hardware. The immense popularity of the LG-made Nexus 4 and 5, even amongst mainstream consumers is surprising, especially because they were supposed to be developer devices.

This leads us to the LG G3, which is now available in Korea and ready to be s…………… continues on AnandTech

LG Optimus 4X HD to Be Launched in Canada Next Month

LG Optimus 4X HD to Be Launched in Canada Next Month
News from Eastern Morning Herald:

Once upon a time, LG boasted of having the “phone to have” – the dual-core Optimus 2X. It was unique in an era of single-core phones, just as the HTC One X was when it became the first phone with quad-core power in a dual-core-dominated market.

Well, the One X is now a few months old, and Samsung’s Galaxy S3 has become an international hit thanks in part to its quad-core Exynos CPU. LG’s a little behind the times, but it’s not too late to ride the trend, as proven by the Optimus 4X HD.

The LG Optimus 4X HD was first launched in Europe late in June, and last month it debuted in many parts of Asia. Unfortunately, it hasn’t seen the light of day in North America. Canadians, though, have something to prepare for in September – Mobile Syrup reported this week that the device will be arriving in Canada in about a month from now.

LG 55LM6700 Review: Feature-Filled HDTV Is Frustrating
News from PCWorld:

LG Electronics 55LM6700 55-Inch 3D LED HDTV Review, by Lincoln Spector August 2, 2012

I had heard so many good things about LG’s latest 3D HDTVs that I couldn’t wait to try one myself. The 55-inch LG 55LM6700 (estimated $ 1650 street price as of 7/30/2012) is one of the company’s new midrange LED edge-lit sets, offering a 120Hz refresh rate, passive-glasses 3D viewing, an impressive range of connected features, and a motion-controlled remote. It’s also a pretty set to look at even when it’s turned off, with a thin silver bezel that acts as an ultraslim frame for an edge-to-edge picture.

Alas, what I found when I reviewed the 55LM6700 was unexceptional image quality and a revolutionary remote control that caused more problems than it solved. I was left disappointed.

Lab Tests: Picture, Sound, and Energy Consumption

The five judges in the PC World Labs’ image quality tests found that the 55LM6700 displayed good but not great pictures. In particular, the set had problems when those pictures moved quickly. In our motion test, in which a blueprint pans horizontally across the screen, the image was, in the words of one judge, “as clear as mud.” In my c…………… continues on PCWorld

Canada: LG Optimus L7 now available from Fido and Rogers

Canada: LG Optimus L7 now available from Fido and Rogers
News from IntoMobile:

Rogers Wireless and its prepaid arm Fido have started accepting orders for the LG Optimus L7, which if you recall, is the best device from LG’s recently unveiled L series of phones.

Rogers is asking a single cent for the phone as long as you put your signature on a new 3-year contract, while Fido will give the device completely free with “select 3-year Fido Agreements.” Don’t want to sign a contract? No problem – Rogers will take you $ 274.99 for the Optimus L7, while Fido asks $ 300. Not sure why there’s a price difference, but hey – these two gotta differ somehow, right?

Anyway, specs wise LG’s baby comes with a 4.3-inch WVGA screen, HSDPA and Wi-Fi connectivity, 5-megapixel rear camera, 1GHz single-core processor, GPS, Bluetooth, 512MB of RAM, 4GB of built-in storage, while Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is running the show. All in all, it’s a pretty solid mid-ranger, offering decent value for the money…

Mobile OS: Windows Phone 8 To Be Revealed
News from DigitalVersus:

In this fine month of June we can expect changes a-plenty in the world of mobile operating systems. At the top of the list, Microsoft will be unveiling Windows Phone 8 (Apollo) in just a couple of weeks.

A year and a half ago, the firm from Redmond, WA introduced its first smartphone platform (Windows Phone). Despite the support of a handful of big-name partners (HTC, LG and Samsung, who since have switched to Android for subsequent releases), and despite Microsoft’s agreement with Nokia to make Windows Phone its sole operating system, Windows Phone has struggled to bolster its relatively meagre market share. And the growth of its MarketPlace app store (100,000 apps) still hasn’t helped better its position, innovation and originality notwithstanding. In an effort to gain new ground, Microsoft will be releasing the new version of its Windows Phone OS at the end of the year along with the PC and tablet version of Windows 8.

Microsoft has announced that a number of new features and interface changes for Windows Phone 8 will be presented on 20 June at the annual conference for the developers working on the OS.

According to a Microsoft spokesperson we met a few days ago, Windows Phone’s existing partners (all except L…………… continues on DigitalVersus
