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 Uni8 With Windows Phone 8.1 Tipped in Leaked Press Image

LG Uni8 With Windows Phone 8.1 Tipped in Leaked Press Image
News from NDTV:

LG, which was one of first Windows Phone partners before stopping to produce smartphones for the platform in 2010, is reportedly once again making a Windows Phone device, this time running Windows Phone 8.1.

The famous tipster @evleaks on Monday tweeted a render image of the big-screen Windows Phone said to be dubbed LG Uni8.

While the tweet suggested that it is likely to be launched in 2014, the Engadget team on Tuesday reported that it has “received a denial from the folks over at LG, who have said that this isn’t a phone that we’re going to see released this year.” This would imply that LG has no Window Phone devices lined-up for 2014.

The alleged LG Uni8 may be the company’s first Windows Phone 8 device, and when launched, it will mark LG’s re-entry into the Windows Phone market that it left in 2010.

LG G3 spotted in the wild with new Quick View case
News from TrustedReviews:

The LG G3 has been spotted on the subway

The LG G3 leaks continue to emerge thick and fast, as the upcoming flagship phone is spotted out in the wild.

With the manufacturer having failed on many levels to keep its LG G2 follow-on secret, the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 rival has now been snapped riding the subway in LG’s native Korea.

The shots, which look suspiciously staged, show a woman sporting the gold edition of the LG G3, with the handset sat within the recently teased new Quick View case with a circular preview window.

Although LG has already confirmed the phone’s name and teased elements of the handset’s specs sheet and design, the phone is not set to be formally unveiled until May 27.

Set to be showcased at a London-based launch event, the LG G3 will land with a 5.5-inch edge-to-edge display.

Is this LG’s first Windows Phone 8 device?

Is this LG’s first Windows Phone 8 device?
News from CNET:

Dubbed the Uni8, the device sports the familiar Windows Phone 8 interface, at least in this image provided by Evleaks.

Evleaks/Screenshot by Lance Whitney/CNET

LG could be getting into the Windows Phone 8 game, if a new image popping online turns out to be the real deal.

An image posted by oft-accurate tipster Evleaks shows an LG phone with the traditional Windows Phone screen. Dubbed the LG Uni8, the device could see the light of day this year, according to Evleaks’ tweet as it specifically lists 2014.

The Uni8 resembles a traditional Windows Phone handset with the tiled home screen and the familiar navigation keys at the bottom. But otherwise, the leak doesn’t reveal any specs or details about the device.

CNET contacted LG for comment and will update the story with any further information. In February of 2013, LG told CNET that it had no immediate plans to sell a Windows Phone 8 handset, citing a l…………… continues on CNET

LG G3 press renders leak to show phone in full glory
News from TrustedReviews:

Official looking LG G3 images have leaked, with the prematurely teased press renders showcasing the upcoming handset in all its high-end glory.

With the heavily rumoured, but currently unconfirmed LG G3 having been the subject of multiple leaks in recent weeks and months, the first official shots of the device have now popped up, once again showing the handset in a trio of lustrous hues.

Despite giving the clearest, most professional look at the handset yet, the press images offer no further insight into the device beyond what has already been seen.

Shown in black, silver and gold colour schemes, the LG G3 looks set to feature an expansive, edge-to-edge display and a slimline, brushed metal or metal effect body.

Sticking with a design principle introduced last year, the G3 has been shown with a smaller, more refined rear button configuration, with the phone’s power and volume keys sat beneath the integrated camera and dual-LED flash offering.

According to recent rumours, the LG G3 will boast a 5.5-inch QHD panel, with a stunning 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution.

LG To Place Windows Phone Orders Soon [Rumor]
News from Ubergizmo:

LG is probably more well-known for their lineup of Android smartphones, and despite Microsoft having listed LG as one of their manufacturing partners for Windows Phone devices, we haven’t really seen much from the South Korean company yet. However that may soon change, according to a report from DigiTimes.

According to the publication, LG is expected to resume their cooperation with low-cost ODMs like Arima Communications. The company specializes in low-cost entry-level 3G devices, and LG is expected to place an order from them for about 2 million such phones.

LG G3 QHD display possibly unveiled
News from Phones Review:

There is a lot of anticipation for the next big smartphone release from LG and the company may have unveiled the LG G3 display ahead of an official launch for the handset.

LG Display has taken the wraps of a new 5.5-inch screen that has a resolution of 1440 x 2560, which means the display has an impressive 538ppi pixel density. This new display has also been certified as QHD by the NEMKO testing and certification organization in Norway.

The new display is set to go into mass production and features extremely thin bezels, and the company has managed to develop the display to have the same brightness as its FHD screen. The company will also sell the new display to other manufacturers but it is likely to make its debut on the upcoming LG G3.

Android Phone Comparisons: LG G2 VS HTC One M8
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

 

Introduction

This comparison has an older face, the LG G2 from the end of September, and a new face, the just released HTC One M8.  I know there will be the naysayers that will say WHY did you pair the new HTC One M8 with this older model – well, I will tell you.  The LG G2 and the HTC One M8 are actually very close in specifications and the G2 has stood the test of time – there are many people who just will not give up their LG G2, and that speaks volumes.  Both devices use a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core processor – true the one in the HTC One is overclocked, but they are not all that much different.  They both have 2GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of internal storage, although the HTC One M8 does have room for a microSD card for additional storage. Both have non-removable batteries. Take a look at their specifications below and then we’ll talk about the differences between both devices before we pick a winner.

Microsoft announces new Windows Phone partners, including Lenovo and LG

Microsoft announces new Windows Phone partners, including Lenovo and LG
News from ZDNet:

Summary: Microsoft is poised to become a Windows Phone manufacturer in its own right, but is still managing to add new partners to its roster.

In spite of becoming a Windows Phone maker in its own right via its purchase of Nokia’s handset business, Microsoft is still managing to add new Windows Phone partners to its roster.

New to the Windows Phone OEM list are Foxconn, Gionee, JSR, Karbonn, Lava (Xolo), Lenovo, LG, Longcheer and ZTE, according to Microsoft officials. (I’m not sure why ZTE is listed as new, given they were a previous Windows Phone partner.) They will supplement the existing Windows Phone partners — HTC, Samsung and Huawei — according to company officials who shared the updated list at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) show in Barcelona on February 23.

Microsoft execs didn’t say when these new partners would be bringing new handsets or designs to market. Nor did company execs say much about Windows Phone 8.1 (codenamed “Blue”), beyond mentioning that “a compelling new update for Windows Phone” is on its way to market.

[MWC 2014] Hands-On With The LG G2 Mini: Why Does This Phone Exist?
News from Android Police:

Following in the footsteps of Samsung, HTC, and Sony, LG has announced a “mini” version of their G2 flagship, and they’re showing the phone off here in Barcelona. The G2 Mini uses a smaller screen than the 5.2-inch G2, but it’s also got considerably weaker hardware.

At 4.7 inches, there’s nothing really “Mini” about this device, but you’ll definitely notice the lower resolution on the LCD (960×540). The hardware inside is also less than inspiring, with just 1GB of RAM serving the 1.4Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 400. Around back you’ll find an 8 megapixel camera hanging out above LG’s now-standard rear power and volume controls. Storage is 8GB plus an open MicroSD card slot, and the removable battery is a respectable 2440mAh. The display phones were running Android 4.4.2.

Windows Phone 8: Star Features

(click image for larger view and for slideshow)

So far only a few hardware makers have adopted Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 platform, but that might be about to change. Both Asus and LG have indicated interest in Microsoft’s latest smartphone operating system, which means businesses and consumers will eventually have more choices.

Benson Lin, Asus’ corporate vice president of mobile communication products, said the company is eyeing Windows 8 for its next Padfone product, and that the company wants to make Windows Phone 8 devices.

“With our Padfone concept, the phone plus tablet, I think it makes sense for Windows 8,” said Lin in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “There is no target timeline … but we are interested in making Windows phones.”

LG says it plans on selling 45 million smartphones this year
News from Ars Technica:

LG has made plans to increase its sales ten-fold in the new year. According to The Korea Times, the company plans to sell 75 million handsets this year, 45 million of which will be smartphones. The news hits after numerous reports that the company has been behind on shipments of its Nexus 4 handset, which LG insists is not true.

LG also mentioned it plans on making this number by getting into the Windows Phone 8 game. ”We will release quite a number of new Optimus devices this year, and LG also has some new smartphones in the works that will run Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8,” a senior executive from one of LG’s partners told The Korea Times.

LG Planning Multiple Windows Phone 8 Smartphones
News from Tom’s Hardware Guide:

2010′s Optimus 7 was last device for LG powered by Windows Phone platform.

According to a partner company, Korean smartphone manufacturer LG is planning a number of Windows Phone 8 handsets.

LG plans to sell 75 million phones in 2013
News from SlashGear:

Like any company heading into the new year, LG is planning to have a great 2013, and the company is looking to sell 75 million handsets during the 12-month period, 45 million of which are projected to be smartphones. Previously in 2012, LG sold 55 million phones, so their 2013 goal is certainly reachable, but it’ll take some work.

The Korea Times reports that the company is predicting a record year in 2013, and stepping into the Windows Phone 8 market may help LG hit that 75 million mark. Those phones, along with the already-popular Optimus series, could help the company reach record sales this year, but they would still be far behind competitors.

LG Optimus G Review: A Fast Smartphone With a Roomy Screen
News from ABC News:

Living in New York City, a place where even the most modest apartments cost an arm and a leg, I’ve come to appreciate smartphones with enormous screens. The way I see it, if my apartment is going to be the size of a shoebox, at least my phone can feel sumptuous. Having all of that screen real estate is downright luxurious. If you’re also itching for a little bit of breathing room, then LG’s latest smartphone offering, the Optimus G with a 4.7-inch screen, is worth considering.

Bold and Beautiful Screen
The $ 199 (with two-year contract) Optimus G currently runs Android’s 4.0 operating system (aka Ice Cream Sandwich) and comes in two hardware variations, one for Sprint and the other for AT&T. You’ll notice right away the phones are sizable in-hand. Sprint’s phone measures 5.19 x 2.71 inches. AT&T’s model is a hair shorter and wider, at 5.15 x 2.82 inches. Both have 4.7 inch displays.
