Is the LG G3 ‘the best Android phone ever’? Well…
News from Computerworld:

Plug in, turn on. Veteran Android journalist JR Raphael goes beyond the headlines to serve up a fresh mix of Android news, views, and how-to’s. Try it with margarine for a low-cal treat!

Have you noticed how much smartphone reviewers love superlatives?

Seriously — it’s insane. I’ve lost count of the number of headlines I’ve seen proclaiming the LG G3 to be “the best Android phone ever” and other things along those lines. Some of ‘em even started showing up from U.S. publications before anyone had actually used a U.S. model of the phone (and remember, the international model didn’t fully work on U.S. networks!).

When you follow tech news long enough, it’s really no surprise. Practically every major flagship phone that comes out is

LG’s new flagship G3 phone is good, but lacks pizazz
News from The Seattle Times:

Originally published August 22, 2014 at 3:24 PM | Page modified August 22, 2014 at 5:52 PM

If Samsung represents one extreme in the move to add new bells and whistles to smartphones, LG seems to be aiming for the other end of the spectrum.

In its Galaxy S line of phones, Samsung has taken the kitchen-sink approach each year by adding a host of new features, from new ways to shoot photos to new hardware elements like pulse monitors.

But too often, the add-ons have been either poorly conceived or partly developed.

LG takes the opposite approach. With its new flagship smartphone, the G3, the company focuses on only a handful of new features, most of which are subtle improvements rather than flashy advances.

I like the idea, but I think LG may have carried things too far. The G3 is a good phone, but it’s not exciting.

Like many other Android flagship phones these days, the G3 touts a jumbo-sized screen, a long-lived battery and a fast quad-core processor.

But unlike those phones, the G3’s interface is relatively unmodified from standard Android. And its tweaks — like its three-page home screen that flips like pages in a book — are fairly subtle.

LG has sought to distinguish the G3 not through its interface or the size of its screen but through the resolution of its display. It’s one of the first phones…………… continues on The Seattle Times

Rumor: Next Nexus Phone Coming Within 30 Days, Maybe Android 4.2 as Well

Rumor: Next Nexus Phone Coming Within 30 Days, Maybe Android 4.2 as Well
News from Droid Life:

You may not realize this, but it was just last year on October 18 that Google and Samsung took to the stage to reveal the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Today, is October 1. So where are all of the rumors surrounding the next Nexus device? By this time in 2011, we knew that the Galaxy Nexus was going to be called the Galaxy Nexus and also that Android 4.0 was ICS and that they would arrive together. This year seems to be completely different, though. In fact, we know absolutely nothing about the next Nexus phone, if or when it will arrive, and who is manufacturing it. All we have are a couple of rumors to go on, one of which is new and paints a 30-day window in to the picture. According to our friends over at Android and Me, who spoke with numerous industry sources of theirs, the next Nexus has “already leaked” on some blogs and will be unveiled within the “next 30 days.” So which phone is it?

Are we talking about the rumor that LG will create the

Review: LG Optimus L5
News from PCWorld.co.nz:

LG Optimus L5

RRP incl GST: $ 399
Contact: lge.co.nz

AT A GLANCE

  • 4-inch screen
  • 800MHz processor
  • But it’s slow anyway

Looks good, but performs like a turtle on top of another, sleeping turtle.

The LG Optimus L5 is the perfect Android phone for someone who wants style on a budget. Unfortunately, it hasn’t got much else going for it.

The body of the Optimus L5 doesn’t look cheap – actually, it kind of looks like a Samsung Galaxy S, with its rectangular button in the middle. The front and sides of the device are glass and plastic painted to look like metal, and it has a plastic cover on the back that has been painted in such a way that it’s kind of glossy and doesn’t look cheap. Until you turn the screen on, you might think that the L5 was a far more expensive phone.

LG have clearly gone for style over substance, because the 4-inch display seems nice on the surface, but it’s very low resultion for its size at 320 by 480 pixels. The colours are a little washed out, especially reds and pinks. The text smoothing could also be improved, as you’ll suffer a bit of…………… continues on PCWorld.co.nz
