Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4: Which Phone Offers Best Android Experience?

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4: Which Phone Offers Best Android Experience?
News from Latin Post:

First Posted: Aug 17, 2015 03:31 PM EDT

The technology put inside today’s smartphones is becoming more and more advanced. Two excellent options are the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4, according to Extreme Tech.

Comparing the two smartphones, the first difference can be seen in screen size: The LG G4 offers a 5.5-inch screen while the Samsung Galaxy S6 is just a 5.1-inch display.

The displays are not created equally though. Samsung’s Super AMOLED display provides a 2560 x 1440 resolution and 577 pixels per-inch (PPI). That display is the sharpest currently offered on any flagship smartphone. The LG G4 has the bigger 5.5-inch screen, but it is not an AMOLED display. Instead it uses an LCD display. This leads to 538 PPI and colors that are sometimes too cool. The AMOLED display looks better and displays higher quality images. 

The processor used in the LG G4 is the older Qualcomm Snapdragon 808. Since there were problems with the Snapdragon 810 overheating, LG decided to go with the Snapdragon 808, which is six cores instead of eight. Samsung decided to go away from Qualcomm all together and crea…………… continues on Latin Post

Rumor mill: LG’s rumored Nexus phone seen in new leaked photos
News from FierceWireless:

Rumors have been spreading since May that Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is working with two OEMs to create its next Nexus-branded phones running Android M software: a 5.7-inch Huawei device and a 5.2-inch phone from LG Electronics. Now, images purporting to show the LG-made device have surfaced.

The photo, originally posted in the Nexus Indonesia Google+ community, shows the back of a white Nexus device with a sticker that appears to have LG’s logo on it. At the top of the phone is a camera lens and what appears to be a rumored fingerprint scanner.

As Engadget notes, the camera appears to have a laser focus, dual-LED flash, which has popped up in recent flagship LG phones, like the G4. The phone also appears to have a plastic backing, which could bring down the final price of the LG-made Nexus phone. The Nexus 5, which LG produced in 2013, sold for $ 349 unlocked, while the Motorola Mobility-made Nexus 6, a 6-inch phablet, sold for $ 649.

The rumored Huawei device is expected to have more high-end specifications and cost more. Last year Google unveiled the latest Nexus devices in mid-October and could choose to do so again.

A July report from the Information, citing unnamed sources, said that the phone…………… continues on FierceWireless

LG G Flex2 Review: Curved Phone Offers More and Less of a Good Thing
News from TheStreet.com:

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — This is LG’s second attempt at a curved-screen smartphone. This new LG G Flex2 keeps all the good things from the original, and has taken the somewhat unusual design to the next level.

LG introduced its first G Flex curved phone back in the fall of 2013. Unlike the side-to-side curved phone rushed to market by rival Samsung (SSNLF) (and, thankfully, q…………… continues on TheStreet.com

LG offers first phone in the US with flexible screen

LG offers first phone in the US with flexible screen
News from CBS News:

Have you been hankering for a science fiction-y smartphone with a curved, flexible screen? If so, you’re in luck: The LG G Flex will be available in the U.S. starting next week.

The Android-based Flex is essentially a carbon copy of the G2, which has been available in Asia for some time. Its most notable feature, of course, is a 6-inch curved OLED screen; the entire phone has a noticeable curve, with the glass smoothly contoured. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 2.26GHz processor and features a 13 megapixel camera (as well as a 2 megapixel front-facing camera).

Not only is the screen curved, but the entire device is flexible; LG has demonstrated that, with the screen facing down on a tabletop, a heavy weight can flatten the phone completely, and it snaps back to its usual curve when the weight is lifted. That implies the phone can stand up to routine abuse – like accidentally sitting on it. Also curious: The Flex has a “self-healing” back which can recover from routine scratches.

The phone will be available from most carriers starting February 5, and you can pre-order it now fr…………… continues on CBS News

LG G Pro 2 leak reveals another big phone with rear key
News from Geek:

Android By Russell Holly Jan. 29, 2014 11:00 am

LG’s decision to put volume and power buttons on the backs of their phones instead of on the sides like everyone else continues with the soon to be announced G Pro 2. Fortunately for LG, it still looks like a fantastic idea for large phones.

All of the popular Android manufacturers are working hard to differentiate themselves right now. Samsung, Motorola, LG, and Sony all have unique looks and feels to them. If you’re even remotely interested in smartphones, you can usually look at a phone across the room and tell who the manufacturer is.

If you’re obsessed like we are, you can usually tell exactly what model it is. The easiest to recognize by far right now are LG’s phones, thanks to their special rear key design that puts all the physical buttons on the back. This new trend is perfect for larg…………… continues on Geek

LG support page offers a peek at Nexus 4 production numbers

LG support page offers a peek at Nexus 4 production numbers
News from Geek:

Google’s Nexus program has always been enthusiast focused, and never sold particularly well. The Nexus 4′s low price has been matched only by its lack of availability, leading many to believe that the sales volume would have to be astronomical. A little bit of group research combined with a leaky LG support page reveals that the lack of availability could have just been the result of a slow production start.

Several Nexus 4 owners over in the XDA Developers forums decided to see if they could track down individual batches of phones that were having issues. If you recall, there were a lot of problems with the Nexus 7 when it was first released, and there are many users who have had to seek out a new Nexus 4 from Google as the result of defects. If you could track the production batches, maybe a pattern would be revealed that showed defects coming from a specific facility or timestamp for flawe…………… continues on Geek

TECH TIME: Verizon’s LG Lucid offers decent smartphone for low price VIDEO

TECH TIME: Verizon’s LG Lucid offers decent smartphone for low price VIDEO
News from Dearborn Press and Guide:

There are tons of new smartphone releases each year, usually each one greater than the next as all the big brands compete to have the most popular and latest greatest phone on the market.

These are the offerings that draw the crowd that wants the absolute best, but they are usually pretty pricey. So what is someone to do who wants to save a few bucks but not get a junk phone?

Thankfully, there is an increasing amount of quality products coming out for the more budget conscious. For Verizon Wireless customers, this list now includes the LG Lucid, a new smartphone from Verizon that isn’t going to compete with the biggest name phones like your iPhones, HTC Ones or Galaxy S3s, but will serve the needs of a less demanding user.

I recently spent some time with the Lucid, and here’s a full report.

LOOKS

You get the standard thin candybar design on the Lucid, and its 4-inch screen is pretty large but smaller than many new phones on the market. This may or not be something you appreciate. If you want a huge phone, there are plenty of options out there bigger than the Lucid. But I’m willing to bet most people will find 4 inches big enough. It feels quite comfortable in your hand, which is important. Gorilla Glass protects the screen, which is nice, and the weight is a very light 5 ounces. Exact size specs are 4.69 inches high, 2.4…………… continues on Dearborn Press and Guide

LG Optimus Elite – a Budget and Eco-friendly Phone
News from The Driod Guy:

June 1st, 2012 by Roxanne Leave a reply »

Here is another smartphone that is green, eco-friendly, and price conscious. This is also good for starters. The LG Optimus Elite is the successor of the very popular Optimus S.

The plastic case is made up to 50 percent of recycled plastic.  LG Optimus is inexpensive, small and light with 3.5-inch capacitive display, single core 800MHz processor, 512 MB RAM, 5-megapixel camera and also enabled with NFC capability.  By the way, this is the third device launched from Sprint.

LG Optimus Elite is not really for everyone because it has its pros and cons.  Indeed this is really good for starters for being budget and eco-friendly which is made of recycled plastic, small, lightweight and pocket-friendly.

LG Optimus Elite comes with Gingerbread.  For advanced users of smartphones, I know you are not comfortable with it and with its single-core processor, you may find this one very slow.  With a screen size of 3.5 inches it has a low resolution approximately at 320×480.  It is also one of…………… continues on The Driod Guy

UK: LG Prada 3.0 can now be yours for just £239.99
News from Unwired View:

The LG Prada 3.0 (or Prada Phone by LG 3.0, or Prada Phone 3.0 by LG – the company doesn’t seem to be very clear about this phone’s name) has been available in the UK since February. So far, the pricing’s been indicative of a typical high-end Android smartphone. But now you have the chance of getting a pretty decent handset for a great price. And let’s not forget that it has the name Prada slapped on its front – that’s got to be worth something to someone.

The Prada 3.0 can now be yours for just £239.99, a far cry from the £400+ you were previously required to pay for this exact same device. Expansys is the retailer making this possible, so go there and order some Pradas. At this price, it’s actually not a bad smartphone.

LG Optimus LTE2 Smartphone Offers 4.7-Inch Display, 2GB of RAM

LG Optimus LTE2 Smartphone Offers 4.7-Inch Display, 2GB of RAM
News from eWeek:

LG Electronics stole a little spotlight from Korean-rival Samsung May 4, with the introduction of the Optimus LTE2. Like Samsung’s bar-raising Galaxy S III, introduced in London May 3, the new LG phone brings with it an industry first: 2GB of on-board RAM.

Delivering “firsts” to market is apparently part of the LG strategy to get itself noticed by smartphone buyers largely focused on Samsung and Apple. LG was also the first to debut a smartphone with a dual-core processor—the Optimus 2X—the first to offer a glasses-free 3D experience, on the Optimus 3D Max, and, with the Optimus 4X HD, the first to introduce a phone with a quad-core processor.

The bad news: LG introduced the LTE2 during a press event in Korean, suggesting U.S. consumers shouldn’t be expecting it any time soon.

Still, the tantalizing details—three cheers for Google Translate—include:

A Foolish Week of Telecom
News from DailyFinance:

As Mark Twain is reported to have written, “The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated.”

Or, to paraphrase this quote in an imagined statement from LG, “Contrary to what has been written in the Korea Herald and re-reported in the telecom media, LG is not abandoning Microsoft‘s Windows Phone.”

An actual quote from an LG spokesman, according to Pocket-Lint: “None of it is true. … We are still on board with Windows Phone, but right now, we’re focusing on Android because that’s where the demand is.”

This sounds like an “I’m behind you 110%” endorsement. In other words, Microsoft should not stop worrying about losing LG, at least as a result of that rebuttal.

And what about Nokia?
Speaking of Windows Phone, Nokia (NYS: NOK) , the phone maker that has essentially bet its future — at least in the smartphone marketplace — on its partnership with Microsoft in developing Windows Phone handsets, should be sweating bullets over that lukewarm affirmation from LG.

The Finnish company has lately become the Kim Kardashian of phone makers; it just can’t stop getting into the news, and not in the best way. As reported here…………… continues on DailyFinance

MetroPCS Offers Third Contract-Free LTE Phone, LG Esteem

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

MetroPCS Offers Third Contract-Free LTE Phone, LG Esteem
News from PC Magazine:

MetroPCS today released the LG Esteem for its 4G LTE network, a lightweight version of the LG Revolution LTE smartphone on Verizon.

The LG Esteem costs $ 249 after a $ 100 mail-in rebate; no contract necessary.

Apart from flashing LG’s custom Optimus user interface, the Esteem bears a strong resemblance to the LG Revolution on Verizon: a 4.3-inch capacitive touch screen, 1-GHz Snapdragon processor, 5-megapixel rear-facing and 1.3-megapixel front-facing cameras, 720p HD video recording, HDMI output and MicroSD slot. It ships with the Android 2.3.4 version of “Gingerbread,” which is more up to date than the Revolution’s Android 2.3 “Froyo” package. However, the Esteem has 8GB of storage compared to the Revolution’s 16GB.
