Korean electronics manufacturer LG is the winner when it comes to making a smartphone battery that can stand the test of time – beating Apple’s iPhones and Samsung’s Galaxy series – according to the latest Hong Kong Consumer Council report.

The report showed that out of the eight mobile phone models tested, LG’s G Flex performed best with its 3,500mAh (miliamp hour) battery, suffering only a 3 per cent drop in performance over a two-year span – which was created in a laboratory setting.

The battery originally held a charge for eight hours and 40 minutes, which fell to eight hours and 23 minutes after two years’ worth of use.

Phone Comparisons: LG G Flex 2 vs Samsung Galaxy S5
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Do we have a good one for you today – the new LG G Flex 2 goes up against the Samsung Galaxy S5.  Can the new and improved G Flex 2 with its curved body, battery and display beat out the venerable Galaxy S series number 5?  Even though these two devices are close to a year apart, they both have the same FHD display, available internal memory expansion, great cameras, and about the same battery size and even physical size.

Both devices come with the usual Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC, a microUSB port for charging and data transfer, and both even have an IR Blaster – most likely because both LG and Samsung are heavily into Smart HDTVs.

Please take a look at the detailed specifications comparison found below – expand it by clicking on the “View Full Comparison” at the bottom and you will get a real sense of how these two devices match up against one another.  After that, we will look at each individual device and talk about it and weigh out some of the pros and cons in an effort to pick a winner for this comparison.

LG G3 Mini leaked in documentation
News from Phones Review:

Leaks about the upcoming flagship LG G3 have been abundant just lately, and if you’re wondering this will come in a mini version then you might just be in luck. A handset with model number LG D725 has been spotted in a leaked document, and it’s thought that this is the LG G3 Mini.

It does seem rather early for an LG G3 Mini to be touted as the LG G2 Mini has only just arrived on the scene. However, we do see a lot of devices leak out in this way so of course this could be the real deal. The LG G3 Mini is codenamed the B2 mini, with the LG G3 being codenamed the B2, and the new leaked documentation shows the B2 Mini as model LG D725 and gives up a few specs.

If we’re to believe this evidence the LG G3 has a 720p display (size unknown), and an 8-megapixel camera with stills shots of up to 3264 x 2248 pixel resolution. It will be running Android 4.4.2 KitKat skinned with the Optimus UI. The leak shows a version for AT&T, but we’d anticipate a release on all of the major US carriers as the LG G3 is expected to.

There’s no news yet on a possible release date for the LG G3 Mini, although the LG G3 is rumored to be on the way to a July

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant
News from Droid Life:

The LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update from Verizon is finally available as build VS98024A, though you can’t exactly grab it over-the-air. No, sir, this update is currently only available through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, which is only available on Windows for LG phones. Sorry, Mac homies.

In order to update on Windows, all you have to do is plug-in your LG G2, then either wait for Windows to prompt you for an action or open a folder and look for a Verizon/LG drive to appear. In that folder, you should find a SWUpgradeLauncher app that will walk you through the steps to getting your Kit Kat on. 

The update weighs in at around 2GB, so it’s substantial.

No word yet on when the update will be available OTA. In fact, Verizon’s own support pages still do not show that the update is available even though you can manually update through their software upgrade tool.

The process is pretty painless, so don’t be scared to give it a shot if you have a Windows machine. I was able to do it just fine on a virtual Windows 8 partition on my iMac.

LG launches budget L65 dual-SIM smartphone with Android Kitkat and Knock …
News from Firstpost:

South Korean smartphone maker LG has just launched a new dual-SIM Android smartphone called L65 for the Russian market. It is the newest member of its latest smartphone series of Android smartphones which include L70 and L90. The phone has appeared on the LG’s Russian website.

According to the site, L65 will come loaded with Android V4.4 (Kitkat) operating system out of the box. It has a 4.3 inch IPS display with a WVGA resolution (480×800) which is less than the L70 smartphone. Under its hood is a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 processor with 1GB RAM. This is the same configuration which we saw in L70 and L90 models too.

The L65 has a 5MP rear camera that comes with autofocus feature but no LED Flash. The front camera comes with a meagre 0.3 megapixel resolution. This is in sharp contrast to 8 MP rear camera and 1.3 MP front camera which we saw in L90 as well as L70 models.

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)

LG Spectrum 2 Review (Verizon)
News from SlashGear:

We’ve been seeing a lot of really good high-end handsets lately (like the Galaxy Note II and the HTC DROID DNA), but all the while, LG has been putting out some solid mid-range phones. Not too long ago, we reviewed the LG Optimus L9, a mid-range device at T-Mobile that wasn’t extraordinary in any way but still a quality handset all around, and today it’s the Verizon Spectrum 2 that’s taking center stage. The question is whether or not this smartphone is yet another good mid-range entry from LG, or if it falls short when held up against the dozens of other mid-range handsets ready to be taken home.

LG Spectrum 2 (Verizon Wireless)

LG Spectrum 2 (Verizon Wireless)
News from PC Magazine:

By Alex Colon

The original LG Spectrum was a high-end smartphone with a high-end price tag. Fast forward less than a year later, and we have the LG Spectrum 2. It’s designed to compete with the rest of the heavy hitters in Verizon’s lineup, and in most regards, it succeeds. But LG made one key difference this time around: Price. The LG Spectrum 2 is a high-end phone, but at $ 99.99, it costs half the price as other top choices in Verizon’s lineup. That makes it a seriously good buy.

LG Spectrum 2 From Verizon Offers Wireless Charging, NFC, 4G
News from eWeek:

Verizon Wireless is now offering the LG Spectrum 2. Priced at $ 99, the Android smartphone features a 4.7-inch display, wireless charging, NFC and mobile hotspot features.

Verizon Wireless is now exclusively offering the LG Spectrum 2, a 4G-enabled smartphone that has cherry-picked a few key features from around the industry.

Priced at $ 99.99 after a mail-in rebate (that’s of course with a two-year contract), it may in particular pose a challenge to Nokia’s new Lumia devices, which share a key feature—wireless charging.

The Nokia Lumia 920 was introduced in September with accessories that make it possible to take a wire-free power nap on a charging pillow; the lower-end 820 has a removable back that users can swap out for a different color or a with back that enables the phone to charge wirelessly. The Spectrum 2 comes with a wireless charging cover in the box.

A global Android device running 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich), the Spectrum 2 features a 4.7-inch True HD Advanced High Performance (AH) In-Plane Switching (IPS) display with Corning Gorilla Glass. It runs a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, comes with 16GB of internal storage, suppor…………… continues on eWeek

LG Intuition review Optimus Deja Vu with a Verizon LTE twist

More Info

  • LG Optimus Vu review
  • LG Intuition officially announced
  • Intuition by LG hands-on

It’s not uncommon for US carriers to take an international smartphone under their wings, make a few adjustments to hardware and firmware, stamp their fat logos in multiple places and then sell it to the masses. Verizon is no exception: the LG Intuition is its interpretation of the Optimus Vu, a 5-inch phablet we reviewed over the summer. Perhaps calling it an “interpretation” is a bit of an overstatement: aside from a bump in firmware and Big Red’s LTE,…………… continues on LG Intuition review: Optimus Deja Vu with a Verizon LTE twist – Engadget

Will Verizon be launching LG Intuition on September 15th?
News from The Droid Guy:

In this amidst crowd of Smart phones, we have another stiff competition at our hands in this September. Who is it this time? Samsung? HTC? It’s neither Samsung nor HTC; in fact it’s none other than LG, joining the big league of Smartphone companies like Samsung and Apple, to be releasing their phone next month.

The LG Optimus VU is coming to Verizon finally. This isn’t something new for the daily techno buffs since we’ve been hearing this news from a very long time and it’s about time the phone comes out. However, there is something new from the daily news, the carrier, as Verizon plans on changing the name of the phone which would soon appear on the line named as the LG Intuition.

There have been leaked pictures seen of the phone over the internet, which we suspect aren’t the real ones however we’ll still give you a quick review about it. The press render seems to show the all new Optimus VU/ Intuition with the collaboration of Verizon. The pictures are pretty much similar to the live pictures which have already been seen by most of us.

Another interesting thing about the phone is that it gives us clues towards the date when the phone is likely to be re…………… continues on The Droid Guy

Coolpad: We Can Build Better Budget Phones
News from PC Magazine:

MetroPCS today announced the Coolpad Quattro 4G, the first U.S. smartphone from Chinese firm Yulong Coolpad.

The Quattro 4G is $ 99 without a contract, but Coolpad says it can offer a better build quality and better radio performance at $ 99 than its competitors.

This may be Coolpad’s first U.S. phone, but it’s a well-known name in Asia. Yulong Coolpad has been making phones since 1993. The brand “Coolpad” comes from the old “PDA days,” when the company was known for its Chinese-language handwriting recognition software, Nick Chen, president of Coolpad Americas said.

Like its much larger rivals Huawei and ZTE, Coolpad is based in Shenzhen. With 3,000 employees, it’s only a tiny fraction of those other companies’ size. But it punches well above its weight; continues on PC Magazine

Report: Verizon to sell LG’s 5-inch phone as the LG Intuition
News from GigaOM:

After selling 500,000 units of its Optimus Vu, LG is reportedly partnering with Verizon to bring the 5-inch smartphone to the U.S. The timing is odd, as is the phone’s 4 : 3 aspect ratio, given the success of the Galaxy Note and its coming soon successor.

After passing up on Samsung’s 5.3-inch Galaxy Note, Verizon reportedly plans to sell LG’s 5-inch Optimus Vu smartphone. Droid Life posted a screen shot that shows the handset will cost $ 199.99 with contract, or $ 549.99 without, and it will be named the LG Intuition. As with all other smartphones that Verizon now releases, the Android-powered Intuition will support the operator’s 4G LTE network.

The leaked information follows just two days after LG announced the phone would be sold internationally. The handset maker launched the device in Korea, where it has sold 500,000 units. It’s likely that LG will have to use two different chip suppliers for the Vu based on my news report earlier this week:

Qualcomm confirms Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core in upcoming LG phones
News from Android Community:

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen a few leaks regarding an upcoming smartphone from the folks at LG that is rather powerful. Blasting through benchmarks and sounding quite impressive. Then even more details leaked regarding the LG Optimus G smartphone. We now can confirm that Qualcomm‘s extremely fast and efficient new quad-core will be powering the device.

The current processor powering all the most popular smartphones is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, that manages to hold its own rather well against current quad-cores. We got our first look at the new S4 Pro quad-core last month but we now know it is coming, and coming soon.

Qualcomm has confirmed they’ve partnered with LG and have been collaborating on releasing a powerful quad-core 4G LTE device they are calling a “global device.” This will support full 3G and 4G LTE with what they call 3G/LTE multi-mode. So the tradeoff between 3G and 4G LTE will be seamless — something we haven’t seen in the past.
