LG G3 smart phone smokes Amazon Fire in Consumer Reports’ tests
News from ConsumerReports.org:

We’ve just completed our tests of Amazon’s first smart phone, the Fire, and LG’s latest flagship model, the G3. Both phones are outstanding in their own ways, with unique and compelling features that should dazzle tech fans. But their designs reflect radically different views on what a smart phone should be. As the headline implies, Consumer Reports testers determined that the G3’s approach gets much closer to the target.

Amazon Fire

The Fire is all things Amazon, heavily integrated with Amazon Prime, Apps, Kindle, and more. Several unique capabilities make it easy, and even fun, to spend money with the retail giant.

For example Firefly, an onboard app, scans objects or listens to songs, then finds them in Amazon’s immense retail and digital content so you can buy them. Another intriguing technology, Dynamic Perspective, can make certain flat images appear three-dimensional on the phone’s 4.7-inch display, allowing you to view them from different angles as you tilt the phone in various ways. You can also scroll up and down Web pages, summon app menu options, or view messages and other notifications by jerking or tilting the phone.

But battery life is much shorter than on many other phones from Samsung, LG, and others, including the G3. Also, the Fire’s unique and somewhat unintuit…………… continues on ConsumerReports.org

Samsung Galaxy S5 vs LG G2: Review comparing Specs, Prices & Battery Life
News from StreetWise Tech:

Cellular phones of yesterday have been just great for sending plus obtaining calls and even generating along with acquiring incoming telephone calls. These days, the cell phones does things that were just fantasy to all of us over a 10 years before, and this will keep on in the future.

Display and Design

The Samsung Galaxy S5 upgraded the Galaxy S4′s design by a lot. Say farewell to the cheap plastic feel and hello to a new matte finish, which, while still plastic, provides a much better overall look. Add to that a removable back cover and the ability to insert an extended battery. Plus, the Samsung Galaxy S5 has support for microSD cards of up to 128 GB, so storage space is a thing of the past. Display-wise, Samsung’s new display used in the Galaxy S5 is simply put one of the best on the market. The 5.1 inch Super AMOLED display comes with a full HD resolution of 1920×1080 pixels and a PPI of 432. In addition, multiple display modes (such as the battery-saving black and white mode or the Super Bright Mode that makes sunlight viewing easy) ensure that the Galaxy S5 truly shines when it comes to visual quality. The LG G2 unfortunately brings a glossy plastic cover that doesn’t look bad, but attracts fingerprints like no other phone. No microSD support is included, and the fact that you can’t install an extended battery is also a huge minus. That being s…………… continues on StreetWise Tech

LG reports profits in its Q3 earning from smart phones
News from The Droid Guy:

Ever since the Apple iPhone and Google’s Android operating system came into existence, Apple and Samsung seem to be the only two companies which are making profits. All other companies which were in the smart phone market, including BlackBerry, HTC, Nokia, HP, Sony, and even LG, are in losses. But now, LG seems to have been picking up the pace. Once the world’s third largest smart phone manufacturer has reported profits again, after a year of heavy losses.

The company has said that it made a total profit of 157.1 billion won ($ 138.5 million) for the three months ended September 30. This is a huge recovery from the 413.9 billion won ($ 366 million) loss it faced in the same period, last year. “However, third-quarter revenue fell 4 percent to 12.38 trillion won ($ 10.93 billion) due to a decline in demand for feature phones,” CNET writes.

“LG’s mobile division recorded a third-quarter profit of 22 billion won ($ 19.4 million), compared with a 138.8 billion won ($ 125.8 million) loss a year earlier,” the online publication mentions. The profits have been credited to the demand for LTE based smart phones.

Still, that’s a last-minute addition we’d wager, and everything els…………… continues on SlashGear
