AT&T LG G Flex review: Interesting display tech and excellent battery life
News from ZDNet:

Summary: LG launched their curved display phablet, but the premium price isn’t justifiable given the low display resolution, mediocre camera performance, and odd button placement.

India’s costliest Android phone goes official
News from Times of India:

NEW DELHI: LG has officially launched its first curved screen smartphone, G Flex, in India at Rs 69,999. The model had been unveiled in the country in December last year, and is the first smartphone in the market to have a curved display. It has been available for the past couple of days via online stores in the country.

At this price, the model is the most expensive Android smartphone in the market.

Soon Kwon, managing director, LG India, said, “Curved flexible displays are a groundbreaking technology that enhances consumers’ viewing experience by many degrees. LG’s latest offering, G Flex, combines innovation and technology along with sleek, curved design that not only delivers a more comfortable grip and fit, but offers better voice and sound quality. G Flex represents a new era in the smartphone space where curved and flexible displays are no longer a sci-fi fantasy.”

iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S5, LG G Flex and Nexus 6: Smartphones that will …
News from Daily News & Analysis:

2014 has begun and it looks promising for the smartphone market. The industry skyrocketed and 2013 saw many big brands competing with their flagship releases. However, it’s time for a fresh start and we are looking at smartphones that haven’t launched yet but are hugely anticipated. Some ofcourse could just be rumours while some will actually see the light of the day. Let’s cut through the speculation and highlight those phones we really want to see in 2014.


iPhone 6 and 6C

It’s just been a few months since the iPhone 5S  and 5C were launched. However, rumors about next year’s iPhone, presumed to be called the iPhone 6,  have already started emerging. Currently, rumors suggest that the iPhone 6 could have a larger display, possibly as large as 4.8-inches, something that would satisfy the demand for a larger iPhone. Apple historically has released the iPhone in either the summer or the fall, so we’re at least a few months away from a release. Consumers could get a redesign, an upgraded camera and processor, and the introduction of Apple’s iOS 8 software. We haven’t heard about an iPhone 6c just yet but we don’t expect Apple to simply abandon the product, so an iPhone 6c seems likely for 2014.


Samsung Galaxy S5

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

Pantech, LG Vie for Runner-Up Spot in LTE Smartphone Market
News from The Chosun Ilbo:

Pantech and LG Electronics are competing fiercely for second place in Korea’s 4G long-term evolution (LTE) phone market.

Pantech sold some 210,000 units of its flagship Vega Racer 2 since it was launched on May 11. Citing data released by market research firm Gartner, the phone maker said it took second place in the overall domestic smartphone market with a 20.5 percent share in the first quarter.

Pantech hopes it can consolidate its position in the LTE market with its new model, which supports Korean-language voice recognition and delivers up to 9.5 hours of talk time per battery charge.

Meanwhile, LG said it has sold 150,000 units of its Optimus LTE 2 since its launch on May 21. Despite the fact that the Vega Racer 2 has sold 60,000 more units so far, overall sales figures are not dissimilar because Pantech had a 10-day head start.

“In fact, LG has gained the edge in the LTE market,” said an employee at LG. The company claims its new phone has the fastest data-processing speed among all local models.

However, neither hold a candle to sales of Samsung’s Galaxy Note, which hit the market last November. Some 2.5 million units were sold in the last six months, making it the top-selling LTE smartphone in the domestic market.

“The Note is proving hugely popular, grabbing about 50 percent of the domestic LTE market for t…………… continues on The Chosun Ilbo

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.

TECH TIME REVIEW: LG Spectrum to provide competition to heavyweights in …
News from Heritage Newspapers:

A new year brings an avalanche of new smartphones. Among the early offerings from Verizon Wireless is the LG Spectrum, a phone with some impressive specs that should provide competition to the heavyweight phones on the market, even in a crowded market.

LG isn’t the most well-known brand in the smartphone game, but with the Spectrum, they arguably have their best product yet and are becoming more of a player that people should take seriously.

I recently took the Spectrum for a test run, and I’ll let you know how it compares to the competition.

LOOKS

The LG Spectrum boasts a large screen – 4.5 inches to be exact. This is the new norm in cell phones, and makes for bigger areas to view videos and movies and to play games. There are some people who don’t want a phone this big, especially those with smaller hands, and they’ll likely avoid the Spectrum and similar sized phones.

The materials used on the Spectrum are very high quality, as it comes with what feels like a built-in case. That means that a drop here and there will likely not cause any major damage. The screen is secure too, as it is protected by Gorilla Glass.

Exact specs are 5.33″ x 2.71″ 0.41″, and the weight is 4.99 oz.

Another smartphone to add to the Mango world for Windows Phone comes here in the LG Fantasy, code named E740 and very likely the same device we saw earlier this week in the LG Miracle. This device is one that’ll be sporting a lovely 4-inch super-bright NOVA display, a 1GHz Snapdragon single-core processor, and a 5 megapixel camera on the back – so you know what that means: mid-range time! LG will certainly need to come correct with the price on this beast if they hope to put a kink in the already standardized set of devices out there for Windows Phone right this minute – drowning is a distinct possibility!

Leaked photos of LG Miracle Windows Phone emerge
News from CNET:

The LG Miracle
(Credit: Pocketnow)

Photos of a new Windows Phone, dubbed the LG Miracle, have been revealed by Pocketnow, and boy does it look…underwhelming.

Don’t get me wrong, I have no qualms with either LG or Microsoft, and I’m always excited to hear about what new phones will be sporting the Windows Phone platform.

But seriously, if it weren’t for that fake lens flare up at the top right, my eyes would have just glazed over the whole picture. It looks like every other (save for the Nokia Lumias) Windows Phone we’ve seen so far.

As far as the specs go, the phone is expected to have a 4-inch NOVA display, 8GB of internal storage, a 1GHz Snapdragon processor, a 5-megapixel camera (able to handle 720p video recordings), a front-facing VGA camera, and HSPA connectivity.

The phone is also rumored to have an NFC chip, which will allow it to wirelessly transfer data between itself and nearby NFC enabled devices.

We anticipated the chip appearing in phones stocked with Windows Phone 8. Those are scheduled to come out some time around Q4. But since the LG Miracle is coming in spring, perhaps users will take a bite out of the NFC chip earlier than expected.

News from Wilkes Barre Times-Leader:

tech talk

Posted: February 7
Updated: Today at 12:50 AM

When I received a box with the LG logo on it last week, I was skeptical. LG phones had always been a little bit on the vanilla side – they didn’t have the snazzy interface of HTC or the chassis appeal of Samsung. They were certainly competent, but I hadn’t seen anything that made me think, “Gee, that’s cool.”

Times Leader Photo Store

The Spectrum has done quite a bit to change that opinion. First impressions can be everything — so when I opened the case and found myself staring at a 4.5-inch, high-definition display, set off by a minimalist bezel, I thought perhaps this was something different.

Turning it on proved a bit awkward – the length of the phone meant that it wanted to slide out of my hand. If you’re left-handed, however, it’s actually quite…………… continues on Wilkes Barre Times-Leader

LG Phone Fails in Becoming Cool as Apple Vies With Samsung: Tech
News from San Francisco Chronicle:

Oct. 24 (Bloomberg) — LG Electronics Inc.’s new Optimus phone sports a display sharper than the one on Apple Inc.’s iPhone and its chip puts it on par with Samsung Electronics Co.’s newest Galaxy. Gwon Soo Seok, 23, still isn’t won over.

“LG’s image is that of a laggard,” said Gwon, a student in Seoul who is leaning toward an iPhone or a Galaxy. “LG seems to have good technology, but Apple and Samsung are the cool ones,” said Gwon, who stopped using devices made by Seoul-based LG, the world’s No. 3 phonemaker, three years ago.

The failure to woo consumers like Gwon leaves LG at a disadvantage to Apple and Samsung in smartphones, the fastest- growing segment of the $ 207 billion mobile-phone industry. LG had 718 billion won ($ 625 million) in operating losses at the handset division in the year to June, compared with a 5.7 trillion-won profit in the same period at Samsung.
