LG G Flex: Curved phone avoids getting gimmicky
News from Chicago Daily Herald:

By Hayley Tsukayama, The Washington Post

It would have been so easy for the LG G Flex, available on AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile this week, to be just a collection of gimmicks. And while it’s not a phone suited for a majority of people — its $ 300 price tag alone cuts most folks out — it is a surprisingly good option for the growing number of folks who want a phone-tablet hybrid.

What saves this phone from being ridiculous? Mainly that all of its crazy features do exactly what they’re supposed to do.

Take that curved screen, for example. The screen bows away from the user, a shape that actually does cut down on glare from indoor lights and sunlight. Watching any kind of video on the phone is a great experience. At short distances, the slight curling at the edges does make the phone feel more immersive — the main selling point LG and others are using for curved TVs. The screen itself hits most of the high points: big, bright and responsive. On the negative side, the display quality is not as good — it’s not “retina” quality, for example — and images can appear blurry at times. The camera, a 13 MP sensor, is also just average, and not a standout feature on a phone that one might assume would place a high premium on good quality images.

When is My Android Phone Getting the Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” Update?
News from Droid Life:

In the past, we have done our best to track the update situation for most of Verizon’s phones whenever a new major version of Android is released. We did it with both Ice Cream Sandwich and then Jelly Bean. Since Android 4.4 “Kit Kat” has been available for almost two months and has rolled out to a number of devices, it seemed like the perfect time to get a post going. We are going to do things a little different this time, though.

In the past, we stuck to a list of Verizon’s top devices for a number of reasons.
