Hands on: LG G3 Android smartphone

Hands on: LG G3 Android smartphone
News from Sydney Morning Herald:

LG’s G3 5.5-inch smartphone sporting a Quad HD 2560×1440 IPS LED display.

Large and in charge, LG’s G3 ups the stakes in the Android screen wars.

By my calculations today marks the 1000th Gadgets on the Go post, with the blog kicking off back in 2007 as Apple’s first iPhone hit US shelves and Android was still on the drawing board. Smartphones have come a long way in a short time and triggered a personal tech revolution which belonged in the realm of science fiction only a few years ago.

LG’s 5.5-inch G3 smartphone continues to break new ground, pushing past the 5-inch barrier which would have seen it dubbed a phablet not so long ago. It follows on from last year’s 5.2-inch G2 and is pretty much the upgrade you’d expect – bumping up most items on the spec sheet while also updating to Android 4.4.2.

Since last year we’ve also seen the release of the 5.9-inch LG G Pro 2 and 6-inch

LG G3 review: Good phone, but not a worthy successor to the G2
News from Indian Express:

The LG G3 costs Rs. 47,990 for the 16 GB version and Rs. 50,990 for 32 GB version.

Summary

Anyone looking to upgrade from the superb G2 are in for some disappointment.

Coming a year after the success of the LG G2, the LG G3 was among the most awaited phones of 2014. The phone has thankfully come to India soon after its global launch, indicating that the Korean company has finally woken up to the potential of the Indian smartphone market thanks to the popularity of its Google Nexus 5. But is the LG G3 a worth successor to the G2 and can it be relevant at a time when the Indian market and consumers seem to be veering towards more value for money Android phones like the Asus Zenfone 5 and the Xiaomi MI3.

Specs: 5.5-inch Quad-HD (2560x1440p; 538ppi)| 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor | 3GB RAM | 16GB internal memory + 64GB external | micro SIM | 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front camera, Full HD video recording | 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, GPS, DLNA, NFC, Miracast | 3200mAh battery | Android 4.4.2 KitKat

Price: Rs. 47,990 for the 16 GB version and Rs. 50,990 for 32 GB version

Design: The LG G3 has a very simple, but functional design. Like in the G Flex, the volume and power buttons are on the rear flap where your finger naturally rests…………… continues on Indian Express

Hands on with LG’s curved, self-healing G Flex smartphone

Hands on with LG’s curved, self-healing G Flex smartphone
News from GigaOM:

20 hours ago Dec. 13, 2013 – 8:39 AM PST

Unlike most new smartphones I’ve seen this year, the LG G Flex genuinely surprised me. And not just because of its curved design or the fact that it’s built from materials with “self-healing” properties. What really caught me off guard is the fact that I actually kind of like it.

When the box for the LG G Flex – curved, just like the phone itself – landed on my desk, I approached it with an open mind. But there were already a number of factors that also made me a little prepared to hate it. For one thing it’s a 6-inch “phablet,” which I think is just too big. Period. Then there’s the curved shape and all that self-healing marketing, which I find incredibly gimmicky. And to top it all off, I wasn’t in love with the LG G2, which, in many ways, the G Flex is based on.

And yet all those things I thought I would hate about the phone have somehow worked in its favor. Think about it: The LG G Flex is a 6-inch curved…………… continues on GigaOM

Hands On: LG Optimus Elite for Sprint and Virgin

Hands On: LG Optimus Elite for Sprint and Virgin
News from PC Magazine:

We got to check out LG’s eco-friendly Optimus Elite for Sprint and Virgin. Here’s what we saw.

Sprint and Virgin Mobile recently announced the LG Optimus Elite, a new, inexpensive, eco-friendly Android smartphone. PCMag got a chance to see both phones up close.

The green features are really being played up on these phones, so let’s look at those first. For starters, the Optimus Elite is ULE Platinum Certified, which is the highest level of environmental performance recognized by sustainable requirements established by UL Environment and Sprint. The phone’s casing is made of 50 percent recycled plastic, and is RoHS compliant, which means it is free from many potentially hazardous materials such as halogens, mercury, phthalates, and PVC.

The phone also comes with a charger that exceeds the EC Code of Conduct on energy efficiency when it comes to no-load consumption. Unlike many other chargers, the Optimus Elite’s charger only consumes 0.03 watts of power when plugged into a wall socket…………… continues on PC Magazine

LG Lucid Review: Solid 4G LTE Smartphone for First Time Users – Gotta Be Mobile
News from LG Lucid Review: Solid 4G LTE Smartphone for First Time Users – Gotta Be Mobile:

The LG Lucid on Verizon Wireless is an affordable 4G LTE Android smartphone with the first time smartphone owner in mind.

The Lucid may not have all the bells and whistles found on phones 2-3 times its price, but it does offer a fast 4G LTE connection, good battery life, solid build quality and an attractive upfront cost.

LG and Verizon promise that the Lucid will see an update to Android 4.0, the current Android operating system, but that shouldn’t be a deciding factor for shoppers interested in the Lucid.

The cost of a new smartphone is a minor part of the overall cost of ownership, so the $ 79.99 price after rebate is not the only thing to consider when looking at the LG Lucid.

I would not recommend the Lucid to my media loving sister, but it would be near the top of a list of phones recommended to my mother or my father-in-law had he not just purchased a $ 120 flip phone to avoid another data plan.

Read on to find out if the LG Lucid can meet the needs of new smartphone owners.

Pros

  • Price
  • Build Quality & Size
  • 4G LTE

LG Quad-core 4X HD Smartphone Hands On

LG Quad-core 4X HD Smartphone Hands On
News from Mashable:

BARCELONA: Spend enough time at Mobile World Congress and soon you find that you can’t tell one gray slab, big-screen smart phone from the next. The screen sizes vary a bit, and some have smooth backs, while others offer ridges, but most of the handhelds unveiled at the show, especially the Android ones, look very much alike. On the outside, LG’s powerful Optimus 4X HD is a shining example of the look-alike super-phone species. You have to look inside to see what truly sets it apart.

LG’s Optimus 4X HD was the first out of the gate with Nvidia’s Tegra 3 quadcore CPU. This 1.5 GHz workhorse gives it enviable power, which LG likes to demonstrate by showing just how much work each core is doing right on screen. Those animated bars serve no real purpose except to make Optimus HD owners feel good about all the cores they have. Check out the slideshow and video and you can see the core indicators running in the upper left-hand corner of the screen. There’s also, by the way, a special, high-capacity 2000mAh battery designed to handle the extra needs of all those cores.

The pleasingly thin 8.6 mm device’s other claim to fame is its bright and sharp 4.7-inch True HD IPS display. It is stunn…………… continues on Mashable

LG Beacon (MetroPCS)
News from PC Magazine:

The LG Beacon ($ 39 direct) is a solid, affordable cell phone if you’re looking to talk and text on the cheap with an inexpensive plan from MetroPCS. It has a nice slide out QWERTY keyboard, a responsive touch screen, and pretty good call quality. It’s also a decent music player, though it stumbles when it comes to all other forms of media. But if you place texting above all else, it’s a good choice for the money.

Design and Call Quality
At 4.1 by 2.1 by 0.7 inches (HWD) and 4.4 ounces, the Beacon is light, but it’s also super thick. The back is a metallic red plastic, while the front is matte black. The 2.8-inch capacitive touch screen features 240-by-400-pixel resolution and is surprisingly responsive, but feels a bit cramped; the whole phone feels like it can stand to be a quarter-inch wider.

Hands On With The LG Viper, LTE Phone for Sprint

Hands On With The LG Viper, LTE Phone for Sprint
News from PC Magazine:

The smaller LG Viper will cost a bit less than the Samsung Galaxy Nexus when it launches with Sprint midyear.

LAS VEGAS – The Samsung Galaxy Nexus won’t be the only LTE phone Sprint launches soon. I got a few minutes at CES with the brand-new LG Viper, a version of MetroPCS’s LG Connect 4G refitted for Sprint’s upcoming LTE network. It’s a more compact phone than the Galaxy Nexus, but still very powerful.

I admit it: I’m no big fan of the Galaxy Nexus. I feel like its 4.65-inch screen is too big, and I was turned off by the poor voice quality on the Verizon version. Yes, the Galaxy Nexus is going to be Sprint’s flagship LTE phone; it’s running Android 4.0 and has the undeniable geek cred of Google’s anointed Nexus line. But the hardware on the denser, slightly thicker, smaller Viper, with its 4-inch 800-by-480 screen and brushed-metal back, appeals to me.

Updated: Jan. 9, 2012 | 3:27 p.m.

LG Electronics announced a number of new HDTVs and 3-D TVs at its International Consumer Electronics show press conference in Las Vegas on Monday, but it also introduced a new smartphone.

The LG Spectrum comes with a 4.5-inch HD IPS display, a 1.56 kHz duel-core processor, and an 8-megapixel camera. Although Android 4.0 is available, the company will ship the new smartphones with Android 2.3.

LG said that the phone will be upgradeable to Android 4.0.

To set itself apart in a crowded market, LG will pre-load the ESPN Sports Center app, which will run HD content from the cable sports network.

LG plans to launch the Spectrum on Verizon’s network on Jan. 19, the company announced. It will retail for $ 199.99 with a two-year contract.

“This year were introduced many remarkable innovations … to enhance consumer life,” said Wayne Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics North America. “Last year was a very challenging year for economies around the world including the U.S.”

Despite the economic challenges, Park said 2011 was a pivotal year for LG as revenue grew by nearly 8 percent, while sales topped $ 12 billion.

The company also announced Monday that its adding voice recognition and 3D gesture control to its Cinema Screen line of HDTVs thi…………… continues on Las Vegas Review Journal

At 5.3 by 2.7 by 0.4 inches (HWD), the Nitro HD features a long, slim design.
