LG’s ‘QuickCircle’ G3 case opens a window into your phone

LG’s ‘QuickCircle’ G3 case opens a window into your phone
News from Engadget:

LG hasn’t officially revealed the G3 yet, but its new QuickCircle case gives you a pretty good idea of what the device can do. The QuickCircle, which the South Korean company just announced, features a circular cutout in front so you can access the UI’s lock screen, take pictures, listen to music and even make calls even if you don’t open up the case. It has other things going for it other than its tiny window, as well, such as Qi wireless charging standard compatibility and a Smart Lighting feature that emits a soft glow within the cutout whenever you get a call or a message. Next month, LG’s also releasing an SDK for the case, and if you’re lucky, someone out there has a brilliant idea just waiting to be made.

Case Manufacturer Posts LG G3 Renders Over the Weekend, Try to Contain …
News from Droid Life:

Over the weekend, purported “official” renders of the LG G3 popped up, watermarks began flying around, and the internet couldn’t contain itself over what it thought was a massive leak. I hate to break it to you, but the renders are from a case manufacturer who is promoting its LG G3 cases on Amazon early. That’s not say that these renders don’t tell us something, just keep in mind that these are by no means official. 

Case manufacturer, Ringke (a favorite of ours for their slim cases), posted up new LG G3 products of theirs that will be in stock around June 30. The cases show the shape of the LG G3 with both white and black shells around white and black versions of the device. The camera, volume/power button combo, IR blaster, dual-LED, and speaker grill on the back all match up in placement to previous leaks.

On the front, we are seeing a blank, black screen that looks big, edge-to-edge, and with minimal bezel in the chin and top areas. We are also seeing what appears to be a cutout for either a TV antenna or P…………… continues on Droid Life

LG L90 Dual review: There is more to this phone than the knocking on heaven’s …
News from Indian Express:

The LG L90 is priced at Rs 17,499

Summary

The L90 is powered by the latest Android OS, the 4.4 KitKat and is in perfect synch with the phone’s hardware

The knock code has for long been used by prisoners to communicate with each other by producing a series of tap sounds. Alphabets, with the exception of K, are visualised in a 5×5 grid, and each letter is represented by two taps. The first tap signifies the row and the second tap tells the column in which the letter is in the grid. Prison authorities couldn’t decipher the code due to the incessant chatter of prisoners using prison walls, bars etc to tap coded messages. When held in isolation this was perhaps the only way that a prisoner could talk to other inmates.

Decades later, Korean electronics giant LG has patented the Knock Code and introduced a striped down version of it in its new entrant to the L Series Collection, the L90. LG in its press release claimed it to be the “most secure pattern unlocking mechanism”. And we put that to the test.

A user can preset a tap sequence on a 2×2 grid and use it to unlock the screensaver. One would presume, the more the number of taps, the more secure the phone is. For all practical purposes we set a 10-tap unlock sequence. Barring a few minor hiccups — human error — the phone picks the sequence and unlocks without delay.

LG G Flex deep-dive review: The curious case of the curved phone

LG G Flex deep-dive review: The curious case of the curved phone
News from Computerworld:

Review

February 4, 2014 06:30 AM ET

Computerworld - Does “different” automatically mean “better”? That’s the question I keep coming back to every time I use one of LG’s recent Android devices.

The company’s been trying fervently to stand out from the pack, first by moving the volume and power buttons to the back of its phones and now, with the new LG G Flex, by adding a curved shape into its design. But do those qualities meaningfully enhance the user experience? Or are they just different for the sake of being different?

LG’s rendering of the G Flex; the phone’s curve is actually far more subtle than this image suggests.

I’ve been living with the G Flex for the past week to find out. All hype aside…………… continues on Computerworld

LG G Flex Review
News from Are Curved Displays Really the Future? – TechnoBuffalo:

At first I was really excited to use the G Flex camera because I think LG did a fantastic job on that front with the G2. Then I learned that, while the G Flex has a 13-megapixel shooter,  it lacks the optical image stabilization found on the G2 and other phones such as the Lumia 1020. Shots in daylight of snow falling look crisp, as do others that I took inside of a train station.

However, another shot at dusk while walking came out super blurry. Of course it did, since I was moving, but that’s the benefit of OIS – it helps stabilize shots while you’re moving around and can’t hold the phone still. The single LED flash did alright in low-light situations, too, but it wasn’t noteworthy in any way. The phone is capable of recognizing if you’re taking a selfie and your face is in the shot, and it works really well. Simply dig into the camera’s settings, turn on face detection, and then aim for a selfie. The LED light on the back panel turns green when your face is in focus. There are plenty of other modes that work well, too, including burst mode, HDR, panorama, VR panorama, dual camera and more.

As I mentioned earlier, photos looked grainier on the phone than they do in real life, largely because of the plastic used for the screen. Once I uploaded a few to Google+, they actually looked clearer than they did on the phone.
Of note: the camera defaults to a…………… continues on Are Curved Displays Really the Future? – TechnoBuffalo
