How LG and Motorola are assailing Samsung

How LG and Motorola are assailing Samsung
News from Gigaom:

Since the rise of the original Galaxy S, Samsung has sat atop the Android handset market, furthering its distance over other rivals supporting the operating system over the years. The company’s dominance is particularly impressive when one considers that it is the only successful feature phone company to expand its success in the post-iPhone era.

However, with the company’s smartphone margins declining as smartphone penetration inches higher, the company is seeing reinvigorated competition from two old rival brands from its feature phone days — LG and Motorola. How they are taking on the Android giant represents a study in contrasting strategies. While LG has taken many pages from Samsung’s playbook, Motorola…………… continues on Gigaom

Phone Comparisons: HTC Desire 820 vs LG G3
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Boy have we got a good one for you today – the new HTC Desire 820 up against the aging, but still viable LG G3.  The Desire 820 is a fun smartphone for the younger crowd with several available colors and an 8MP front-facing camera (FFC) for social media selfies or video chatting with your friends and family.  The LG G3 is a more ‘adult-like’ smartphone, still made with a plastic outside, but with the look of metal.  Both devices feel solid and well-made when you hold them, with the Desire 820 being just a little bit larger.

As different as these two devices are, they do have a few things in common.  The first is their 5.5-inch display size, though very different.  The second is they both use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, again, very different models.  They both offer a model with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, although the 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage was the only model of the LG G3 we saw in the U.S. – but both devices do have room for 128GB of expansion via a microSD card slot.  Both devices use a 13MP sensor for their main camera, but t…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

Phone Comparisons: Motorola Droid Turbo vs LG G3
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Do we have great comparison for you today – the new Motorola Droid Turbo versus the very popular LG G3…the first mass produced smartphone with the QHD display, like the one on the Droid Turbo.  The phones look as different as night and day – the sleek, very small bezels, rounded and metallic look of the LG G3 make it a sweet smartphone.  This is opposite the more rugged look of the Droid Turbo with its Kevlar infused body for added strength or the one model that has a ballistic nylon back.  Both devices are well built and comfortable to hold in your hand.

These two devices have several things in common and because the LG G3 has the QHD display, this is going to be a lot tougher decision than I first expected.  The two devices are almost the same height and width, although the Droid Turbo is slightly thinner, it is 20 grams heavier – more than likely because of the mammoth 3900mAh battery and heavier casing with the Kevlar.

The display sizes are close and both at QHD, they both use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but the Droid Turbo uses the newest…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

LG G3 S review | TrustedReviews
News from TrustedReviews:

What is the LG G3 S?

The LG G3 S is a mid-range spinoff of LG’s flagship phone, the LG G3. It’s a direct rival to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini and HTC One Mini 2. Unlike the competition, though, it’s not particularly small. The phone’s 5-inch screen, although smaller than the 5.5-inch G3, is identical in size to the flagship HTC One M8.

Inevitably the phone’s specs aren’t as impressive as the G3 – the G3’s QHD panel is replaced by a lowly 720p offering, the 13-megapixel camera is substituted for a basic 8-megapixel option, and processing power has been slashed – but at £240 it’s a decent amount cheaper. The problem, however, is last year’s flagship LG G2<…………… continues on TrustedReviews

Android Lollipop Coming to Motorola, HTC, LG, Samsung, and Nexus Phones …
News from Christian Post:

By Max Bonto , Christian Post Contributor

October 27, 2014|1:14 pm

Google/Twitter/Image

Google’s latest mobile operating system, the Android Lollipop is soon to be released to the public but which phones will be getting the updates when it comes out? Much like Android KitKat, it generally depends on what make your phone is and to which carrier you are subscribed but it would seem that most phone manufacturers are already planning to update users to Lollipop when it comes out.

Google’s Nexus line will probably be the first smartphones to get the Lollipop update, whereas the Nexus 6 smartphone and the Nexus 9 tablet already have Android Lollipop out of the box. The Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 are slated to get the update and while there haven’t been any announcements, early November is looking to be a probable date.

HTC on the other hand is planning to get the One M8 and One M7 to Android Lollipop and Jeff Gordon, the company’s global online communications manager, has announced that both phones will be getting the upgrade within 90 days of the software’s release.

Motorola is planning to get Android Lollipop to a large number of their devices, namely the first and second generation Moto X, the Moto G, the Moto E, Droid Ultra, Droid Maxx, and Droid Mini.

Android Phone Comparisons: LG G2 VS HTC One M8
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

 

Introduction

This comparison has an older face, the LG G2 from the end of September, and a new face, the just released HTC One M8.  I know there will be the naysayers that will say WHY did you pair the new HTC One M8 with this older model – well, I will tell you.  The LG G2 and the HTC One M8 are actually very close in specifications and the G2 has stood the test of time – there are many people who just will not give up their LG G2, and that speaks volumes.  Both devices use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor – true the one in the HTC One is overclocked, but they are not all that much different.  They both have 2GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage, although the HTC One M8 does have room for a microSD card for additional storage. Both have non-removable batteries. Take a look at their specifications below and then we’ll talk about the differences between both devices before we pick a winner.

HTC, Motorola, and LG offer competitive alternatives to the iPhone 5 and …
News from ZDNet:

Summary: While the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III dominate across the carriers, there are competitive models specific to carriers from HTC, Motorola, and LG to consider.

I wrote a post a couple weeks ago stating that there were two main choices for a smartphone today, the Apple iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III and wanted to follow that up with a bit of clarification and some more phone choices to consider. One of my primary reasons for making the statement I did was that those two phones are available on nearly every major carrier so I was giving a broad recommendation. I understand that HTC, Motorola, LG, and others make very good phones on individual carriers and thus this post attempts to highlight a few of those choices, check out the image gallery, if neither the iPhone 5 or Galaxy S III are not what you are looking for at this time.

Hands-on: LG Optimus G and the Quad-core S4 Pro Chip
News from Tom’s Hardware Guide:

We check out LG’s next flagship device.

In late August, we reported that the LG Optimus G would be the first device to pack Qualcomm’s new quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, the fastest ARM processor right now for high-end LTE smartphones and tablets.

LG gave us some hands-on time with its upcoming flagship device, the Optimus G, which will pack the new processor along with equally impressive phone hardware.

“The Optimus G will be the first commercial and global smartphone to offer the Snapdragon S4 Pro (APQ8064) processor with a Quad-Core Krait CPU, LTE supported capabilities, and the newest generation Adreno 320 GPU,” LG said. “The Snapdragon S4 Pro runs at 1.5 GHz and features Asynchronous Symmetric Multiprocessing (aSMP), which enables each core to power up and down independently, for maximum performance with better battery life.”

Mobile’s Crazy September: Apple, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, Intel, LG, and Amazon

Mobile’s Crazy September: Apple, Nokia, Motorola, HTC, Intel, LG, and Amazon
News from PC Magazine:

If you were going to buy a phone today, don’t.

An absolutely crazy month of new phones and tablets is starting tomorrow, with not only next week’s iPhone 5 but a new Amazon Kindle Fire, several Windows Phone 8 launches and two major 4G phones for Verizon Wireless.

And that’s just September. In October, we’re likely to see an “iPad Mini” and all of those Windows Phone 8′s hitting the market. But these upcoming few weeks are enough for us.

Here’s what’s on tap from everyone, in chronological order.

Nokia: On Wednesday, Sept. 5 at 10 a.m. ET, Nokia will launch its new range of Windows 8-powered Lumia smartphones. Nokia has been busily seeding so-called leaks of photos and specs through a viral marketing agency with which it works. According to the rumormongers at continues on PC Magazine

Coolpad Quattro 4G (MetroPCS)
News from PC Magazine:

By Sascha Segan

The first U.S. smartphone from prominent Chinese phone maker Coolpad shows that the company has a ways to go before it can compete with top manufacturers like LG and Samsung here in the states. The Coolpad Quattro 4G gives you a 4-inch, 800-by-480 screen for $ 99, and since it’s on MetroPCS, you don’t even need to sign a contract. Its performance is slow enough, though, that we can’t recommend it.

LG Optimus Vu, Verizon’s suspect Note alternative
News from Product Reviews:

With all of the exciting talk surrounding the elusive Samsung Galaxy Note 2, there is still the matter of the first Note arriving on new carriers in the US. T-Mobile is now getting the device and although a Galaxy Note on Verizon doesn’t look to be happening any more, Big Red does have another ‘phablet’ device for consumers to consider.

LG has a smartphone and tablet combi in the pipeline after first announcing the device back at MWC 2012 in February, and it looks like the LG Optimus Vu is now ready for launch. The bad news is that the design seems to be coming in for a lot of criticism, as many of you are unhappy with the rectangular design firstly, but also the amount of branding on the device as well.

The Vu is a 5-inch device which Verizon hopes will provide consumers with a Galaxy Note-like experience on their network. Hardware specs are decent, but nothing amazing either – you’ll get a 1.5Ghz dual-core Snapdragon S3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage and an 8MP rear camera combined with a 1.8MP front camera.

The choice of software may be a disappointment too, especially with all of the buzz surrounding Jelly Bean at the moment. A

Motorola joins LG and Samsung to offer phones with VMware hypervisor

Motorola joins LG and Samsung to offer phones with VMware hypervisor
News from Techworld.com:

Motorola Mobility has joined LG and Samsung among the companies building VMware’s hypervisor into their phones. The move is part of a larger push at Motorola to cater to business users.

VMware’s mobile hypervisor works on Android phones and lets users switch between an “open” portion of the phone, which they can use for personal functions, and a business side that’s controlled by IT and protected from potentially malicious applications.

Motorola didn’t share many details about its plans, such as which models will get the hypervisor and when, but it appears VMware may be planning to formally announce the partnership soon. A VMware spokeswoman said the company expected to announce other OEMs, besides LG and Samsung, “in the coming months.” Those phone makers have pledged to build VMware’s technology into all their phone models.

There are some downsides to the “dual-persona” approach to mobile virtualisation, said an executive from Motorola. “The thing I haven’t seen yet is a user experience consumers could embrace,” said Christy Wyatt, vice president of enterprise at Motorola Mobility.

Consumers are constantly switching among apps on their phones. But to go from Facebook, for instance, on the personal side of the phone, to an email application on the business side, the user must sign into the busines…………… continues on Techworld.com

ZTE “Optimus Barcelona” is certifiably baffling
News from Android Community:

You’ve read these stories before: a previously unknown Android phone has been revealed from its certification listings. This time it’s both the WiFi and Bluetooth certification authorities, and the company asking for its papers is Chinese manufacturer ZTE. There’s just one puzzling thing about this phone: it’s been given the official moniker “ZTE Optimus Barcelona”. Say what?

If you’re wondering why that’s puzzling, let us break it down for you: “Optimus” is the family name given to pretty much every single Android device from LG, one of ZTE’s rivals form South Korea. Every Android-powered phone we’ve seen from LG, with the notable exception of those devices produced in partnership with PRADA, have used “Optimus” somewhere in the title. They appear to be big fans of the Autobots over at LG.

To say that LG would have a problem with ZTE producing a phone with Optimus in the name would be an understatement. It would be the same story for anyone but Samsung making a phone or tablet with “Galaxy” in the name, or anyone but Apple starting a product with the letter “i”.
