LG G Flex 2 Is The World’s Fastest Phone, Annihilates Samsung’s Note 4 and …
News from Forbes:

On Wednesday I picked up my review sample of the LG G Flex 2. This is the second time I’ve used the phone, the first was at a pre-brief meeting in Las Vegas for CES. My initial reaction to the phone was “wow”. The reason for that was because I had used the original G Flex, and really liked it, despite it being somewhat impractical in size. But the new phone, it’s much improved, and it has far wider consumer appeal too.

But I’m not here today to fully review the phone, I need to spend longer with it first. What I have done is spend a little time with benchmarking app to see just how fast this phone is. I am, it has to be said, rather against benchmarks because I think they don’t express any real-world facts. But the G Flex 2 is the first phone with the controversial Snapdragon 810 system-on-a-chip, and I wanted to have a look into the overheating issue, and see how well it performs.

From what I’ve seen,  according to the benchmarking tools I used. In every test (with one minor 64bit hiccup) the phone beats both the Note 4 and Galaxy S5 as well as, with 3DMark, the iPhone 6.

LG G Flex2 review: This is what the original should have been – Engadget
News from LG G Flex2 review: This is what the original should have been – Engadget:

“They’re a gimmick. They’re a terrible idea. They’re not going anywhere.”

Naysayers have been doing their thing since the notion of a curved smartphone made the leap from a nutty concept to bona fide market fad, and they’re not going to stop any time soon. Neither are LG and Samsung, for that matter, who squared off in late 2013 with — what else? — a pair of curved phones. Neither the G Flex nor the Galaxy Round were critical or commercial hits, but they made great stepping stones as both companies tried to convince the world that curved phones were the next big thing. Now LG’s back for another shot at flexible-phone glory. The new

Phone Comparisons: Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs LG G3

Phone Comparisons: Samsung Galaxy Note Edge vs LG G3
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Do we have a good one for you today – the new Samsung Galaxy Note Edge goes up against the popular LG G3 flagship from July 2014.  The LG G3 was the first mass-produced/sold smartphone with the newest QHD display, with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and an astounding 538 pixels-per-inch (PPI).  It beat out early rivals, the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One M8 with their rather pedestrian FHD displays.

The Galaxy Note Edge was almost a complete surprise – we expected the Galaxy Note 4 to be released, but the Galaxy Note Edge was like a surprise that Samsung brought to the party.  It too has the QHD display, only it uses Samsung’s Super AMOLED display technology versus the IPS LCD technology used by the LG G3.  These two Korean devices do share a few items besides their QHD resolution – the main display of the Note Edge is 5.-6-inches versus 5.5-inches on the LG G3, although there is a small 160-pixel display also on the Note Edge…on its curved side.

In the US markets, they both use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, just a different model.  They both…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

LG G4 ‘confirmed’ to be skipping MWC 2015, launching May at earliest
News from TechRadar:

MWC 2015 runs from March 2 to 5 and some of the biggest tech companies in the world are expected to flock to Barcelona to show off their newest handsets. However it looks like LG won’t be showing off its upcoming LG G4 smartphone.

According to an unnamed LG executive that spoke to Korean website Chosun, LG is looking to release the G4 no sooner than a year after it launched the LG G3. That handset launched in May 2014, so if the executive is correct we’re unlikely to see the LG G4 until May this year.

Rather than showing off an incomplete handset at MWC 2015, LG will instead continu…………… continues on TechRadar

Phone Comparisons: Xiaomi Mi Note Pro vs LG G Flex 2
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Have we got a good one for you today – the newest Xiaomi Mi Note Pro goes up against the newest LG G Flex 2.  These are the newest and most powerful devices from these two manufacturers – in fact, neither device has been released into the wild yet, we only saw the LG G Flex 2 at CES and the new Xiaomi Mi Note Pro at their own private event in Beijing.

These two devices have a very similar sized display and are very similar in overall size, although very different in design – the Mi Note Pro is an all glass and metal trim design and the G Flex 2 has both a curved display, battery and body.  One place they are on the same page is they both use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 64-bit 810 octa-core processor with one quad-core clocked at 2.0GHz and the other quad-core clocked at 1.5GHz.

The main cameras are also similar – 13MP sensors, dual-tone LED flash, OIS and autofocus, although the LG G Flex 2 employs their faster, Laser autofocus.  The batteries are almost identical size as well – 3090mAh on the Mi Note Pro and 3000mAh on the G Flex 2.  Both devices have the usual Dual-Band Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, a microUSB port, enhanced sound components and Quick Charge 2.0.

Possible LG G4 specs uncovered by LG H810 listing
News from Phones Review:

The LG G4 is certainly going to make an appearance sometime this year; whether it will happen at the upcoming Barcelona Mobile World Congress at the beginning of March, or later in the year (possibly in May, like its LG G3 predecessor) is yet unknown, but rumors and leaks are already trying to anticipate some of the internals the South Korean phone maker will utilise for the 2015 flagship. This particular report, as well as the one we’re looking at today, seems to predict that most of the core specifications and components of the recently announced LG G Flex 2 will make it to the LG G4. We’ve already heard reports talking about a Quad HD screen (like on the LG G3, but with a slightly smaller screen size, in the neighbourhood of 5.3 inches), and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor (like on the G Flex 2), alongside a spec bump for the camera, moving up from the 13MP system on the G3 to a possible 16MP unit.

However, today’s report is based on a UAProf (User Agent Profile) file hosted on LG’s servers. While the LG G3 had model numbers formatted as LG G3 D85x, the phone we’re looking at here is a certain H810, so, while it might be the LG G4 (judging by the specs), it…………… continues on Phones Review

LG Shows Off 8K Display And Curved-Edge Galaxy Note Edge Competitor

LG Shows Off 8K Display And Curved-Edge Galaxy Note Edge Competitor
News from Hot Hardware:

Massive displays are everywhere you look at the Consumer Electronics Show, but I found that some of the most interesting displays at CES 2015 are small: LG Display has some slick new technology for smartphones and a prototype for car dashboards that we hope will be showing up in cars soon.

Touch-sensitive sides put icons and sliders in easy reach on this LG Display phone.

A smartphone with curved edges struck me as unnecessary and unwieldy – until I got a chance to check out LG Display’s 6-inch smartphone with an “active bending” plastic OLED display. Notifications, including text message, can slide up the side of the phone and are surprisingly easy to ready as they pass by. The edges can also put icons and sliders in easy reach.

Plastic OLED displays are flexible and extremely tough. LG Display’s 5.5 inch FHD Curved display has a screen that is curved like a curved TV. If you haven’t seen the LG G Flex2, it’s another curved smartphone worth checking out.

Of course, LG Display’s booth…………… continues on Hot Hardware

Rumor says LG may target the Note 4 with new G4 flagship phone

Rumor says LG may target the Note 4 with new G4 flagship phone
News from Digital Trends:

The LG G3 will almost certainly be replaced by the LG G4 at some point during 2015, and it’ll have to be something very special if it’s to be worthy of the name. While the G4 is unlikely to break cover officially until later on in 2015, rumors of its possible specifications are already beginning to gather.

Here’s what we think we know about the LG G4, all in one handy guide.

A change in strategy?

According to a report from China in late December, LG may include a stylus with the G4, and turn it into a competitor of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. The rumor is based on a selection of trademarks recently registered by LG, including the G Scrawl, and an updated version of the G Pen. Currently, the LG G3’s closest rival is the Galaxy S5.

Mysterious device shows LG may be plotting Windows Phone revival
News from Digital Trends:

LG may be in the process of building a new smartphone running Windows Phone. The news comes from AdDuplex’s latest market research, where an LG phone popped up in its breakdown of which devices are being used to view adverts. The device wears the model number LGVW820, which interestingly links it to another LG phone, the D820, better known as the Nexus 5.

Sadly, if AdDuplex’s data is correct, the Windows Phone device isn’t a reworking of the excellent Android phone. The only specs available are related to the screen, which apparently measures 4.7-inches and has a 480 x 854 pixel resolution. That puts the VW820 firmly in the mid-range, and up against the Lumia 535.

iPhone 6 Plus vs LG G3 vs Samsung Galaxy Note 4: Ultimate specs showdown
News from ChristianToday:

[Photo credit: Apple]

iPhone 6 Plus

Today’s specs bout is a cutthroat showdown among two Android phones and an Apple handset — the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, the LG G3 and the Apple iPhone 6 Plus. These names are surefire head-turners and eye-poppers, but which really is the one to beat?

[Photo credit: Samsung]

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

All three devices were released this year. The latest of the handsets is the Galaxy Note 4, which was launched just last month. The iPhone 6 Plus came out in September along with its little brother, the iPhone 6. The LG G3 was released way back in June.

This early, the iPhone 6 Plus already snatches a win in the design area. With its streamlined aluminum outer shell, LG G3′s faux metal exterior and Note 4′s faux leather skin are pulped. The earliest-released phone among the bunch is also the thickest. LG G3 has an 8.9-inch thin body. The Galaxy Note 4 is at 8.5 mm and the iPhone 6 Plus wows with 7.1mm.

In a complete turnaround, the display department has the Apple flagship a bit left behind despite its capability to render crisp details. The iPhone 6 Plus comes with a 5.5-inch display, delivering 1920 x 1080 screen resolution with 401 ppi pixel density — but its new Retina HD…………… continues on ChristianToday

News from Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera shootout versus iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3 – CNET:

The battle of the phablet phones begins with a test of their built-in cameras that come equipped with optical image stabilization. Which phone takes the best shot?

note4g36plus.jpg Aloysius Low/CNET

Samsung’s latest Galaxy Note 4 sports a new design, but it sticks with a well-tested formula that has defined the phablet range of smartphones since its debut three years ago. Packing a Quad HD Super AMOLED display — that’s a super-sharp resolution of 2,560×1,440 pixels — and the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, the Note 4 is the most advanced smartphone from Samsung yet.

Like the Samsung Galaxy S5, the Note 4 shares some of the same features — and more importantly for this article, a 16-megapixel rear-shooter that comes with optical…………… continues on Samsung Galaxy Note 4 camera shootout versus iPhone 6 Plus, LG G3 – CNET

Phone Comparison: Nexus 6 vs LG G3
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

As Steve Harvey would say on Family Feud, “We got a good one for ya today.”  This comparison squares up the new Nexus 6 against the very popular LG G3 – the first worldwide device with the QHD display.  Both devices are easy on the eyes and feel great in your hands – the metal frame of the Nexus 6 wraps around the glass display on one side and the flat plastic back on the other, while the LG G3 is rounded and smoothed all about with a curved metallic-like back that fits great in your hand.

Both devices have a Quad HD (QHD) display, which means a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels with 493 pixels-per-inch (PPI) on the larger 6-inch display on the Nexus 6 and 538 PPI on the 5.5-inch LG G3 display.  It should be noted that the Nexus 6 display uses an AMOLED technology and the LG G3 display uses the IPS+ LCD technology…this means that the Nexus display is bright and full of colors and contrasts, while the LG G3 has a rather ‘dull’ look to it – some folks like one better than the other.

They each use a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, but the Nexus 6 uses the newest 805 model and the LG G3 uses the 801 series right before the 805 – more on that later.  Both devices offer 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage – the Nexus 6 also offers a 64GB option with no room for expansion, while the LG G3 offers a microSD card for adding up to an additional 128GB of…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News
