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

LG Optimus 4X takes on One X, Galaxy S III

LG Optimus 4X takes on One X, Galaxy S III
News from Fudzilla:

Review: Good, but still not quite there

LG was the first company to introduce a dual-core phone and actually ship it. The company behind the processor was Nvidia and its Tegra 2 chip powered last year’s LG Optimus 2X. LG clearly wanted to continue this collaboration and tapped Nvidia’s quad-core Tegra 3 for its new flagship, the Optimus 4X.
 
The phone was announced back at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in February and it started shipping in mid to late June, at least in major European markets including Austria and Germany. Other countries should start getting the new Optimus in July.

We managed to get our hands on a white sample, but the phone is also available in black, although we find the white version somewhat more attractive. The MSRP stands at €499, which is pretty much the norm in the Android superphone market. Besides the Tegra 3 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, the most notable parts of the spec include a very nice 4.7-inch IPS LCD display in 1280×720 resolution, with Corning Gorilla Glass on top. It also comes with an 8-megapixel rear camera, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, 2140 mAh battery and 1GB of RAM.

The test version shipped with 16GB or memory of which some 12 GB are available to the user and it is also worth noting that this phone has a micro SD…………… continues on Fudzilla

LG Optimus L7 Review
News from Recombu:

The LG Optimus L7 is a lithe white or black device that seems to pack in a fair few great features. Not only do you have a 4.3-inch WVGA display, there’s also NFC and Ice Cream Sandwich under the hood. It isn’t meant to be an explicitly premium handset though. Costing around £250, the L7 packs a slightly dated single-core 1GHz processor. The question is, how does the hardware cope with the pressures of Android 4.0 and todays memory intensive apps?

LG Optimus L7 – Design

The L7′s design is an amalgam of a Samsung Galaxy S2, an LG Prada and a fridge freezer. The results leave us with mixed feelings. On the one hand, the phone feels solid, the large screen sits well and the chrome-like accents along the top and sides coupled with the white might work for some white-phone fanatics. On the downside, the combination of sharp angles up top and smooth…………… continues on Recombu

Priced at $ 149 right now (on promotion) but listed for $ 249, the Nitro HD also packs a 1.5-GHz dual-core processor and an 8-megapixel camera.
