Microsoft Lumia 640

Those who are looking for quality devices that don’t cost a fortune would do well to check out LG and Microsoft’s latest budget offerings, the LG Magna and Microsoft Lumia 640.

LG announced the Magna in February along with three other mid-range devices, the LG Leon, Joy, and Spirit. The Magna is the top end of the new lineup but is still well and truly designed to be a mid-range handset. Meanwhile, the Microsoft Lumia 640 was announced at MWC 2015, and is Microsoft’s follow up to the Lumia 635.

Here, we compare the two mid-range phones.

Design:
The LG Magna has a slight curve at the back, which makes it very comfortable to hold. The plastic panel has a grated texture, which gives it a non-slippery feel. It measures 5.50 x 2.75 x 0.40 inches and is available in black, gold, and white.

Meanwhile, the Microsoft Lumia 640 takes its design cues from the Nokia Lumia 635, but its corners are slightly more rounded off. The phone also feels slippery due to its plastic back. It measures 5.56 x 2.84 x 0.35 inches and is available in white, blue, black, and or…………… continues on Christian Post

LG G Flex 2 vs Google Nexus 6

LG became the talk of CES 2015 when the tech company unveiled the LG G Flex 2, a phone designed to flex and bend and can self-heal in a matter of seconds. The phone’s innovative design sent tech fans scrambling to know when the device will be available, because aside from its unique form, the phone has better specs than its predecessor.

Meanwhile, Google’s Nexus 6 is just a few months older than the G Flex 2, but the handset’s top of the line specs, big screen and premium build has made it a consistent favorite among Android phone fans.

Here, we compare the two devices:

Design:
The Nexus 6 is Google’s first supersized smartphone, and he phone measures 6.27 x 3.27 x 0.40 inches and weighs 6.49 ounces. The phone has an aluminum frame with a matte, plastic back, has curved edges, and is available in Cloud White and Midnight Blue.

Meanwhile, the LG G Flex 2 is truly one of a kind—it’s a phone with a curved shape, which flattens when it’s pressed down, but springs back to its original shape once pressure has been taken off of it. The phone mea…………… continues on Christian Post

On opening day at CES, Microsoft targets emerging markets while LG reveals its impressive second-generation flexible phone.

CES 2015 Preview: 8 Hot Trends

(Click image for larger view and slideshow.)

Monday is press day at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, a day that’s packed with press conferences and other events. LG and Microsoft were two of the first to show off new mobile devices in the early part of the day.

Microsoft announced the Nokia 215, a feature phone targeting first-time users. The device doesn’t run Windows Phone. Instead, it relies on the old Series 30+ platform. Despite the low-end operating system, the phone comes packed with an impressive number of applications and services.

LG’s New G Flex 2 Bends In All The Right Places
News from TechCrunch:

LG is about to announce its latest flagship smartphone, the G Flex 2. It bends! That’s the big news.

But don’t get too excited. The new bendy LG phone is more of an assurance that the G Flex 2 is durable. Yet, the bend itself doesn’t promise added functionality of any sort. However, durability is clearly a focal point. However you bend the phone, LG promises that the phone will bend back to its original curvy shape.

Alongside the bendiness, the G Flex 2 is also coated with the same special plastic polymer we saw on the original G Flex, which is resistant-ish to scratches and self-heals. This time, it doesn’t take minutes to remove scratches, it only takes seconds. Overall, the phone looks a lot like the recently released LG G3, but with a banana shape.

The new phone has a 403ppi 5.5-inch OLED display (same size as the iPhone 6 Plus) with a 13-megapixel dual-flash rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front shooter. Under the hood, the specs are the best of the best, with a 64-bit 2GHz octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor and 2GB of DDR4 RAM under the hood, with support for 300Mbps LTE.

It comes with 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, with options to expand through a MicroSD phone. You’ll also find a 3,000mAh battery under there.

All in all, it’s yet another LG phone.

Microsoft announces new Windows Phone partners, including Lenovo and LG

Microsoft announces new Windows Phone partners, including Lenovo and LG
News from ZDNet:

Summary: Microsoft is poised to become a Windows Phone manufacturer in its own right, but is still managing to add new partners to its roster.

In spite of becoming a Windows Phone maker in its own right via its purchase of Nokia’s handset business, Microsoft is still managing to add new Windows Phone partners to its roster.

New to the Windows Phone OEM list are Foxconn, Gionee, JSR, Karbonn, Lava (Xolo), Lenovo, LG, Longcheer and ZTE, according to Microsoft officials. (I’m not sure why ZTE is listed as new, given they were a previous Windows Phone partner.) They will supplement the existing Windows Phone partners — HTC, Samsung and Huawei — according to company officials who shared the updated list at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) show in Barcelona on February 23.

Microsoft execs didn’t say when these new partners would be bringing new handsets or designs to market. Nor did company execs say much about Windows Phone 8.1 (codenamed “Blue”), beyond mentioning that “a compelling new update for Windows Phone” is on its way to market.

[MWC 2014] Hands-On With The LG G2 Mini: Why Does This Phone Exist?
News from Android Police:

Following in the footsteps of Samsung, HTC, and Sony, LG has announced a “mini” version of their G2 flagship, and they’re showing the phone off here in Barcelona. The G2 Mini uses a smaller screen than the 5.2-inch G2, but it’s also got considerably weaker hardware.

At 4.7 inches, there’s nothing really “Mini” about this device, but you’ll definitely notice the lower resolution on the LCD (960×540). The hardware inside is also less than inspiring, with just 1GB of RAM serving the 1.4Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 400. Around back you’ll find an 8 megapixel camera hanging out above LG’s now-standard rear power and volume controls. Storage is 8GB plus an open MicroSD card slot, and the removable battery is a respectable 2440mAh. The display phones were running Android 4.4.2.

LG Optimus Prime vs Microsoft Surface Phone, Concept Ideas

LG Optimus Prime vs Microsoft Surface Phone, Concept Ideas
News from Phones Review:

The majority of articles we bring you are about new or upcoming smartphones and tablets but every now and then we like to look at concept phones. These LG Optimus Prime and Microsoft Surface Phone concepts will not be available for sale but many concepts have been cleverly designed and show real innovation and give us some idea of what we might see coming to the market. Today we’ll show you the LG Optimus Prime vs. Microsoft Surface Phone and we’ll be interested to hear which you prefer.

Starting with the LG Optimus Prime rendering which would be a real flagship for LG. This has been designed by Rahul Sharma, who has also come up with some specs for this concept smartphone. Sharma imagines a 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor with graphics taken care of with the Adreno 320 GPU, a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED 3D display featuring Corning Gorilla Glass and 2GB of RAM.

There’s also a whopping 21-megapixel rear Carl Zeiss camera with autofocus, dual Xenon flash, PureView technology and Vario Tessar technology and an HD projector. Nice idea for it to feature Nokia goodies but hey, this is a concept after all. As well as all this the Optimus Prime has NFC, HDMI, DLNA and a 3000 mAh battery. The form factor of the Optimus Prime is only 6.65mm thick and as you can see from the image above just when you think there’s not much else to offer with smartpho…………… continues on Phones Review

Why LG’s Optimus G is the Best Phone on AT&T and Sprint – Bright Side of News*
News from Why LG’s Optimus G is the Best Phone on AT&T and Sprint – Bright Side of News*:

We don’t lightly throw around the word best when it comes to smartphones, especially Android smartphones, which are essentially a dime a dozen. With LG’s latest offering, the Optimus G, we’ve seen a huge change in the way the company operates and designs their devices. LG has not necessarily been known as a company with the best smartphones, and many users have had absolutely terrible experiences with previous devices like the Optimus 2X. Since the beginning of this long term review, I have recommended the Optimus G to many of my friends and acquaintances and the biggest problem I had was convincing them that LG made good smartphones. Now, after trying the Optimus G, most people were completely taken aback by the responsiveness and overall sleek nature of the phone. In this review, we’ll not only talk about this phone, it’s internals and the overall experience and performance, but we’ll also explain why it’s the best phone on each respective carrier.

Opinion: Microsoft should be backing Android. Here’s why

Opinion: Microsoft should be backing Android. Here’s why
News from Digitaltrends.com:

Microsoft’s failing Windows Phone strategy proves that sometimes, the best platform is the one you can make money from, even if it isn’t yours. Here’s why hopping into bed with a competitor might have been Microsoft’s best move for mobile.

Microsoft is all about profit right? Just like any other successful tech company, Microsoft executives are always looking for new ways to rake in the cash and they’re good at it too. From software to hardware, for businesses and consumers, Microsoft has expanded to cover a lot of bases. When it comes to the mobile market, that success has proven more elusive, until now. Before you spray your coffee across the monitor (or touchscreen) in disbelief, I should make it clear that I’m not talking about Windows Phone, I’m talking about Android.

Back in September of 2011 Goldman Sachs analysts caused a furor when they suggested that Microsoft could earn $ 444 million between June 2011 and June 2012 from Android licensing agreements, as reported by Business Insider. At the time, Microsoft had settled with a few companies using Android, most notably Samsung and HTC. Since then, it has secu…………… continues on Digitaltrends.com

LG May Not Release Microsoft Windows Phones for the Time Being

LG May Not Release Microsoft Windows Phones for the Time Being
News from GizmoCrave:

Ever since news of Windows 7 Phone OS reached people’s ears, they have been very curious about it. Reviews have been good and some even went to the extent of saying that it could actually compete with Android.

A lot of Windows Phone devices have been announced recently, with promising features which shows manufacturers’ belief in the OS.

LG was one of those companies which we thought would launch a Microsoft Windows–based phone soon and there were even rumors about an upcoming LG phone named Fantasy. This device was speculated to be a Windows-based phone, but it looks like it all could be just lies now.

We hear  LG does not want anything to do with Windows, because Windows phones don’t have good sales in the global market and so they do not want to risk it.

From what it looks like, LG still remembers what happened back in the year 2008 with Microsoft, when the company took a chance with Microsoft Windows to make some Windows Phone devices.

They were later blown out of the way by Samsung and its brilliant plan to make Android phones which turned out to be a great idea.

Is LG making a bad decision now? Or, have they actually thought it through? What do you feel?

The Best Phones From Every Carrier
News from PCWorld:

Four of the best smartphones: (left) the Motorola Droid Razr Maxx; (top middle) the Nokia Lumia 900; (bottom middle) the Sprint LG Viper; and (right) the T-Mobile HTC One S. Shopping for a new smartphone can be overwhelming.

So many good phones are available that upgraders may feel swamped with op­­tions. Never fear: I’ve picked the best ones on each of the four major carriers. And since the smartphone world moves incredibly fast, I’ll also tell you about phones not yet out.

Worth noting are two upcoming phones I’m excited about but can’t yet recommend, because we don’t know enough about them. One, the Samsung Galaxy S III, will debut in Europe before arriving in the United States. Most carriers likely will get a version of the S III, though so far none of them have confirmed that they will. Another wild card is the

LG signs Android patent licensing deal with Microsoft to cover phones, tablets

LG signs Android patent licensing deal with Microsoft to cover phones, tablets
News from VentureBeat:

Korean electronics manufacturer LG has signed a patent licensing agreement with Microsoft so it can be protected from lawsuits concerning Android and Chrome OS, the two companies announced Thursday.

Microsoft has made similar agreements with 10 other companies, including Samsung, HTC, Acer, Quanta and Wistron. The big M earns a small cut from every Android phone or tablet manufactured by the licensees.

The agreement covers LG’s phones, tablets and any device that features Android and Chrome OS. Actual terms of the deal, such as how much money Microsoft will earn off each device, were not disclosed.

“This agreement with LG means that more than 70 percent of all Android smartphones sold in the U.S. are now receiving coverage under Microsoft’s patent portfolio,” said Horacio Gutierrez, deputy general counsel of the Intellectual Property Group at Microsoft, in a statement. “We are proud of the continued…………… continues on VentureBeat

Microsoft to Add Skype Video Calling to Windows Phones

Microsoft to Add Skype Video Calling to Windows Phones
News from Mobiledia:

By Kendra Srivastava | Fri Aug 26, 2011 4:32 pm

Microsoft’s Windows Phone Mango OS is reportedly set to include Skype video calling services, which may make it more attractive to potential buyers.

When Acer, HTC, Huawei, LG, Samsung and ZTE all unveil their Windows phones this fall, they may include a Skype calling feature, since Microsoft recently bought the company for $ 8.5 billion.

An attendee at Microsoft’s Tech Ed conference in New Zealand confirmed Windows Phones are set to include front-facing cameras as well, which are necessary to support Skype video calls, adding further credence to the report.

The same source reported Microsoft also tweaked its OS to enable mobile hotspot and Wi-Fi connections, which will allow users to co…………… continues on Mobiledia

LG rejected Android pole position insider reveals
News from SlashGear:

LG, not HTC, was to be Google’s original partner on the first commercial Android smartphone, according to the latest industry rumors, with Android chief Andy Rubin being forced to turn to the then-little-known Taiwanese firm after LG backed out of the deal. Although negotiations had begun in early 2007 for hardware partners, a source tells the WSJ, first-choice LG opted out midway through the year leaving HTC to pick up the reins. It’s a decision which hindsight suggests did LG no favors, given HTC subsequently rode Android to its current prominence.

Microsoft Baidu Deal, Android Royalties Marked Week

Microsoft Baidu Deal, Android Royalties Marked Week
News from eWeek:

Microsoft continued its Android march this week, with a report that the company plans on demanding $ 15 from Samsung for each Android smartphone produced by the manufacturer.

That information apparently came from unnamed industry officials speaking to the Seoul-based Maeil Business Newspaper, and found its way into a July 6 Reuters report. Were Samsung to enter some sort of royalties deal, it would become the latest in an increasingly long string of companies paying Microsoft an “Android tax.” Microsoft insists that Google’s Android platform violates a variety of patents it holds.

So far, most of those companies have been small: Wistron Corp., Onkyo Corp., Velocity Micro and General Dynamics Itronix have all agreed within the past 10 days to a royalty agreement. However, both Amazon and HTC pay Microsoft, suggesting that some big enterprises are also in Microsoft’…………… continues on eWeek
