LG G Flex curved smart phone bends but doesn’t break

LG G Flex curved smart phone bends but doesn’t break
News from ConsumerReports.org:

Not many electronic devices make a claim for their physical flexibility. After all, smart phones, TVs, computers, and tablets are made from rigid plastic and glass, which are more likely to snap or shatter than bend forgivingly. Then along came LG, touting its G Flex as “the world’s first curved, flexible smart phone,” with this important caveat: “The flexibility of this product is limited. This phone may be bent flat up to 180 degrees for a limited period of time only. Do not bend inward or twist.” (See the screen grab from the LG site below.)

Why, we wondered, would anyone need a bendable phone?

The answer is pretty straightforward. It turns out that flexibility may help with durability. The arc of the G Flex acts like a leaf spring, absorbing energy when pressure is applied to the phone, such as when you lean or sit on the phone when it’s lying on a table. LG was initially pretty vague about just how flexible the G Flex is, but when we pressed company representatives for data, we were told that it had bee…………… continues on ConsumerReports.org

LG G3 specs leak points to integrated fingerprint scanner

LG G3 leaks again with biometric sensor tipped

The upcoming LG G3 specs sheet has leaked again, with latest reports suggesting the future flagship phone will feature its own integrated fingerprint scanner.

Seemingly set to follow in the footsteps of the rival iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5, the latest LG G3 leaks have seen the phone’s inbuilt biometric sensor tipped for inclusion alongside an improved camera and Full HD display.

Surfacing courtesy of a claimed user agent profile from the currently unconfirmed phone, the LG G3 leaks have offered an insight into both the phone’s hardware and software packages.

With the phone shown to pack pre-installed PayPal, McAfee Mobile Security and LG Account software, it has been claimed that an integrated fingerprint scanner could be on the cards. However, LG has yet to shed any official light on the claims and as such we must stress these reports be taken with a pinch of salt.

On a hardware front, the LG G3 will reportedly play host to a new 16-megapixel rear-mounted cam…………… continues on TrustedReviews

LG G Flex review: Curved screen smarthphone doesn’t fool us

LG G Flex review: Curved screen smarthphone doesn’t fool us
News from PC Advisor:

The LG is the first smartphone maker to give us a properly curved screen smartphone so here’s our in-depth LG G Flex review.

The G Flex is LG’s first curved screen smartphone and goes up against local rival, the Samsung Galaxy Round. It’s got a bendy or flexible screen which is fixed in a set curve. The device is now available and although at most retailers you’ll have to pay close to £650 for the luxury, Expansys has it, at the time of writing, for a more reasonable £499.

LG G Flex review: Design and build

The main selling point of the G Flex is its curved screen so we’re going to be looking at this a lot.

While Samsung has gone for a side to side curve on the Galaxy round, the G Flex does things in the opposite direction. It is curved from top to bottom in a banana like shape. LG says, from a design point of view…………… continues on PC Advisor

The LG Flex bends under pressure—until it doesn’t

The LG Flex bends under pressure—until it doesn’t
News from Fox News:

The new LG G Flex is billed as the first flexible, curved smart phone. The flexibility is supposed to help it survive tight pockets and accidental drops—a good thing, because the phone’s gargantuan dimensions (6.3 inches × 3.21 × 0.34) make it harder to stash and more awkward to handle than most models. And the curved shape is intended to nestle in the palm of your hand and enhance voice quality by bringing the phone closer to your mouth and ear.

I’ve spent a few days with AT&T and Sprint press samples of the phone and found that the G Flex was less rigid than typical phones—but not what I’d call flexible. On both phones, the seam between the phone’s case and front panel split open under pressure (see photo below). The parts snapped together easily, though the G Flex isn’t designed to open.

LG also claims the G Flex’s 13-megapixel camera has an improved image sensor with larger pixels for “unsurpassed” pictures and videos. Our engineers are checking those claims in the lab, and we’ll post their findings soon. In the meantime, here are my impressions of this unique and interesting smart phone.

Pros

The screen is dazzling. LG executives have implied that the wide, curved aspect of the G Flex’s 6-inch flexible plastic organic light emitting diode (POLED) panel provides an immersive ef…………… continues on Fox News

LG’s public image problem: It doesn’t have one

LG’s public image problem: It doesn’t have one
News from CNET:

Will the Optimus G succeed where past phones have failed? LG is promising one of the biggest TV marketing campaigns the mobile industry has seen this year.

LG must feel like it’s shouting into the wind when it comes to smartphones.

The company today showed off the Optimus G, the latest Android super smartphone. The G boasts the most advanced Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel camera, and a hefty 2,100mAh battery.

The question is: will anyone care?

There lies LG’s biggest dilemma in the smartphone market. It’s not the lack of any particular feature or specification that has hurt the company, but the virtual non-presence it has had for the past few years. LG was late to the smartphone game and has continued to pay for it with minimal consumer awareness and lackluster carrier support.

“This industry changes very quickly and vendors that miss those changes do tend to fade quickly from the public eye,” said Hugues de la Vergne,…………… continues on CNET

LG Optimus Elite pictured – doesn’t sound too Elite
News from Android Community:

A new phone from LG has been leaked today in a set of official renders or press images. Being called the LG Optimus Elite although I’d go as far as to call it much less than that. We’ve seen reports on this phone before with a rumored name of the LG Optimus Net and Gelato, but we can now confirm this phone and its “Elite” status.

Made available to the folks at Pocket Now this phone will be launching on both the Now Network, and Virgin Mobile in the next couple of months. Most likely late April or sometime in May. The Elite will feature a measly 800 Mhz single-core processor, a 3.2-inch HVGA display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread and be paired with a 5 megapixel camera and LED flash.

Looking at the image is that a mirror of some sort next to the camera? Like those old Sony Ericsson phones from 2007? (I loved my k750i) It looks pretty weird to be a speaker grill. One good thing here is the phone will be very competitively priced, and it better be with dual-core LTE phones like the LG Lucid being released on Verizon today for only $ 79. One feature you wont want to miss on the LG Optimus Elite is the phone is NFC capable and can take advantage of those Optimus Tags, or Android Beam if…………… continues on Android Community

LG Display Starts to Produce Bendable E-Paper Displays.
News from X-bit Labs:

LG Display on Thursday said that it had started mass production of the world’s first plastic electronic paper display (EPD) for use in e-book reader readers. The new display is foldable, therefore, very durable, and very thin, which will allow to make e-readers thinner.

The 6″ XGA (1024-768), e-ink, plastic EPD is expected to revolutionize the e-book reader market with its advancements in functionality and design. The world’s first plastic EPD from LG Display offers users a paper-like reading experience with a plastic substrate that is as slim as cell phone protection film, and a flexible design that allows bending at a range of 40 degrees from the center of the screen. Compared to glass EPD of the same size and resolution, LG Display’s plastic EPD realizes a super slim thickness of 0.7mm which is 33% slimmer than existing glass EPD; as well as a weight of 14g which is more than 50% lighter.

E-book reader users have long expressed a desire for more durable EPD, since around 10% of them have damaged their product screens from accidentally dropping or hitting them. When LG Display’s plastic EPD was put through repeated drop tests, from 1.5m above the ground or the average height of reading when standing, no damage resulted. When put through a break/scratch test involving hitting the display with a small urethane hammer, no scratches or breakage resulted. continues on X-bit Labs
