Selfie wars: LG takes on rivals with new phones

Selfie wars: LG takes on rivals with new phones
News from CNBC:

In the global smartphone market, selfie wars are heating up.

Korean electronics giant LG has unveiled a range of mid-tier smartphones designed with “high quality selfies in mind,” as device makers battle for camera superiority.

The four devices – named Magna, Spirit, Leon and Joy – are curved with screen sizes ranging from 4 inches on the Joy model, to 5 inches on the Magna.

But LG, like others over the past year, is pushing one of the phones’ features in particular: the ability to take selfies.

The Magna handset has a 5-megapixel front-facing camera for selfies, and all of the devices have a feature enabling users to take pictures with a simple hand gesture. LG said it had extended the distance at which the camera can recognize the gestures to 1.5 meters, meaning users could attach a “selfie stick” and trigger the camera from further away.

Analysts said that over the past year, the front-facing camera has become an increasingly important differentiator for smartphone makers, but it is becoming tough to stand out from the crowd.

“We have seen a big jump in megapixels and quality on this camera and it is one way that device makers are looking to differentiate their products,” Ian Fogg, head of mobile at IHS, told CNBC by phone.

“But pretty much every handset maker has front-facing cameras designed f…………… continues on CNBC

iPhone 6 rivals by Samsung, LG, HTC suffering delays in Qualcomm’s 64-bit …
News from Apple Insider:

Feature

Qualcomm’s upcoming 64-bit Snapdragon chips designed to power new high end Android flagship phones including the Samsung Galaxy S6, LG G4 and HTC One M9 are reportedly running into new issues that threaten to further delay any real competition to Apple’s iPhone 6 juggernaut.

A report by Business Korea claimed that Qualcomm’s 64-bit Snapdragon 810 is facing new “hard-to-solve” problems including overheating, RAM controller issues and “an error in the driver of the Adreno 430 GPU.”

The site attributed the “unexpected hurdles” to an unnamed industry source. Samsung, LG, HTC and most other leading Android licensees currently use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips to power most of their smartphones, so any further delays by Qualcomm can only exace…………… continues on Apple Insider

LG G3 camera specs may challenge rivals

LG G3 camera specs may challenge rivals
News from Phones Review:

We have already seen two flagship Android smartphones launched this year and we are still only in the fourth month of 2014. There will obviously be many more desirable devices made available and it is rumoured that the LG G3 camera specs may challenge rival offerings.

There have already been claims that the LG G3 will feature a QHD touchscreen display, but now a new rumour has emerged claiming that the device will feature a 20-megapixel rear camera. This if true will see an increase up from the 13-megapixels unit currently found on the LG G2.

The camera is also tipped to support 4K video capture along with slow motion video, and the LG G Pro 2 already features 4K video recording. Of course this is only a rumour but the device has been tipped to arrive in the next month or two so we may not have to wait much longer to see what the company has in store.

Will you be considering the LG G3?

LG Nexus 4 Review: Google’s new phone rivals Galaxy S3, Lumia 920 and …
News from Examiner.com:

Manufactured by LG, the new Google Nexus 4 phone (released on Tuesday) brings a very smooth and responsive interface, plus a few new surprises. With a large HD screen of 4.7 inches (11.9 cm), a Qualcomm quad-core processor and 2 GB of RAM, the device promises a lot, especially because it is the first to take advantage of version 4.2 of Android.

The design of the Nexus 4 is simple, but yet very elegant. Its large screen size imposes its 15:9 ratio with a beautiful efficiency. It is also very bright (465 cd / m², according to measurements) and displays deep blacks (1661:1 contrast). Plastic materials are discrete on the perimeter of the smartphone. The back of the device, which is covered with a glass surface, is well reinforced against scratches. However, there is concern if it will break in case of bad fall. The Nexus 4 is rather thin and light for its size, but be careful, little hands will be hampered by the width of the touch screen.
