Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera shootout versus iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3 – CNET
News from Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera shootout versus iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3 – CNET:

The battle of the phablet phones begins with a test of their built-in cameras that come equipped with optical image stabilization. Which phone takes the best shot?

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 4 sports a new design, but it sticks with a well-tested formula that has defined the phablet range of smartphones since its debut three years ago. Packing a Quad HD Super AMOLED display — that’s a super-sharp resolution of 2,560×1,440 pixels — and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, the Note 4 is the most advanced smartphone from Samsung yet.

Like the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Note 4 shares some of the same features — and more importantly for this article, a 16-megapixel rear-shooter that comes with optical…………… continues on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera shootout versus iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3 – CNET

Phone Comparison: Nexus 6 vs LG G3
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

As Steve Harvey would say on Family Feud, “We got a good one for ya today.”  This comparison squares up the new Nexus 6 against the very popular LG G3 – the first worldwide device with the QHD display.  Both devices are easy on the eyes and feel great in your hands – the metal frame of the Nexus 6 wraps around the glass display on one side and the flat plastic back on the other, while the LG G3 is rounded and smoothed all about with a curved metallic-like back that fits great in your hand.

Both devices have a Quad HD (QHD) display, which means a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels with 493 pixels-per-inch (PPI) on the larger 6-inch display on the Nexus 6 and 538 PPI on the 5.5-inch LG G3 display.  It should be noted that the Nexus 6 display uses an AMOLED technology and the LG G3 display uses the IPS+ LCD technology…this means that the Nexus display is bright and full of colors and contrasts, while the LG G3 has a rather ‘dull’ look to it – some folks like one better than the other.

They each use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but the Nexus 6 uses the newest 805 model and the LG G3 uses the 801 series right before the 805 – more on that later.  Both devices offer 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage – the Nexus 6 also offers a 64GB option with no room for expansion, while the LG G3 offers a microSD card for adding up to an additional 128GB of…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

CNET Editors’ Rating
News from CNET:

LG hasn’t had much luck with impressive keyboard phones. The LG Optimus Slider runs on Android Gingerbread and has a poor camera, and the LG Rumor Reflex is too basic for my taste. But when Sprint introduced the LG Mach at MobileCon about a month ago, it had a lot of potential.

For one thing, it natively ships with the new(ish) Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS, and it has a swift dual-core processor. Its additional specs and features also make it competitive with other higher midrange devices.

The handset is available from Sprint and is priced at the $ 100 sweet spot after a two-year contract and mail-in rebate. For anyone on this carrier looking for a midlevel keyboard phone, the LG Mach is definitely worth considering.

LG Google Nexus 4 – CNET
News from LG Google Nexus 4 – CNET:

While the LG Nexus 4 wins on internal performance and user experience, anyone shopping for an unlocked phone should consider a comparable LTE handset first.

With its recent history of mediocre handsets, LG needs something other than the Optimus G to be its Hail Mary that can carry it to the top. Unfortunately, the Nexus 4 isn’t quite it.

Don’t get me wrong, the device itself performs excellently, and some of the specs are certainly impressive: the quad-core CPU is swift, the Jelly Bean Android OS runs as smooth as butter, and all the subtle new features work well without being too unintuitive or burdensome.

But Google’s flagship phone is missing one huge feature that caught…………… continues on LG Google Nexus 4 – CNET

LG Optimus G (Sprint): Full Review
News from LAPTOP Magazine:

Yes, the LG Optimus G is the first quad-core smartphone on Sprint’s network, but that’s not the only thing that’s impressive about this device. LG has fitted the Optimus G with a beautiful 4.7-inch display, and loads of extra features and apps. Unlike the Optimus G on AT&T, Sprint’s version also comes with 32GB of internal storage and a 13-megapixel camera. Does this $ 199 device have it all?

Design

Click to EnlargeIf you drew a plain rectangle with tight rounded corners, you would have just drawn the LG Optimus G. The Optimus G for Sprint is similar in shape to its sister LG Optimus G device on the AT&T network, but the Sprint version is the slimmer and sleeker of the two, measuring 5.2 x 2.7 x 0.3 inches compared with 5.15 x 2.82 x 0.33 inches for AT&T. The Sprint version is also slightly lighter than AT&T’s, weighing 5.1 ounces compared with AT&T’s 5.2 ounces.

Though finding an affordable AT&T texting phones never has been a problem, the carrier introduced yet another choice today.

The LG Xpression has a red slider design that hides a full QWERTY keyboard behind the 3-inch, 262,000-color touch screen. Features include a 2-megapixel camera with video, a personal organizer, Bluetooth 2.1, messaging and e-mail, 3G support, microSD card support (up to 32GB), voice dialing, a Web browser, and a basic music player. It runs LG’s standard operating system, but you’ll find social networking apps, AT&T Navigator, and LG Instant Note for sending a text or tweet and updating Facebook with one touch.

The Xpression is $ 49.99 with a new two-year contract and after a mail-in rebate.

Texting Competition Ignores Touchscreens
News from ABC News:

While the nation’s best athletes are in London for the 2012 Olympics, eleven of the nation’s best texters are in New York for the sixth annual LG U.S. National Texting Championship. The competition tests speed and accuracy and the winner will take home $ 50,000.

LG said there will be a number of rounds in this year’s competition, including a text-backwards round (cleverly called the The Txet sdrawkcab round) and a text-in-the-dark round in which contestants are blindfolded.

There’s one striking thing about the competition: the competitors will be pounding away on physical keyboards, not on touchscreens. All the competitors have been provided with an LG Optimus Zip, an Android phone with a slide-out physical keyboard. The phone has a touchscreen too.

“Back in 2007 when we started [the competition], smartphones as a category wasn’t really prevalent, but the target consumer that LG was interested in was these texters,” LG’s Director of Trade and Experiential Marketing, Carl Brown, told ABC News. “We built our brand on those QWERTY keyboard devices.”

The LG 200 that’s available from PayLo, Virgin Mobile’s low-cost prepaid service, is essentially a rebranded version of the LG Saber from U.S. Cellular. The LG 200 is a basic messaging phone without a lot of features, but it is very affordable at only $ 69.99 without a contract.

LG Optimus Vu available unlocked, but not cheap
News from CNET:

by Eric Mack March 6, 2012 11:50 AM PST

LG’s answer to the Samsung Galaxy Note is now on sale in Korea, but for a big markup over its competitor.

Apparently the privilege of using a stylus on an out-sized phone is worth a few hundred bucks these days.

(Credit: LG)

The Samsung Galaxy Note officially has some competition in the world of huge phone/tablet hybrids that work with a stylus–coming from another Korean company, LG, and its 5-inch Optimus Vu.

South Korea’s second stab at a mega-phone went on sale in the country today with an unlocked price of about $ 900. The LTE-enabled Optimus Vu comes with Android Gingerbread, but LG promises an Ice Cream Sandwich update is just around the corner.

LG seems to be positioning the Optimus Vu as an e-reader alternative, touting an IPS display and 4:3 aspect ratio that provides “optimum readability” (according to Google Translate.)
