4 brand new Android phones you might want this year instead of the Galaxy S6

4 brand new Android phones you might want this year instead of the Galaxy S6
News from BGR:

The Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 may have stolen the show at MWC 2015, especially the Galaxy S6 edge version, but that doesn’t mean all smartphone buyers currently considering a new Android handset will go for a high-end device. Nor should they, since the S6 is ridiculously expensive and there will be plenty of cheaper Android devices launching soon, running Android 5.0 Lollipop right out of the box.

Is this our first look at the LG G4?
News from Phandroid.com:

Talk about the LG G4 at AndroidForums.com!

Every company falls victim to a leak or two ahead of their flagship devices’ official unveiling, and LG is no different. The LG G4 has escaped our grasps for far too long, but we might have just gotten our first look at the thing.

Surprise, surprise: it looks like almost every LG flagship device we’ve seen the past couple of years, rear button placement and all. The leak was provided by @onleaks, which is manned by one of the editors from credible French technology blog NowhereElse.Fr.

We’d say that’s pretty good reason to believe this leak will hold up, but if the HTC One M9 debacle taught us anything it’s that no one truly knows anything until the official goods are delivered. It’s…………… continues on Phandroid.com

LG G3 crowned 2014 TrustedReviews Phone of the Year

LG G3 crowned 2014 TrustedReviews Phone of the Year
News from TrustedReviews:

The LG G3 has been crowned Phone of the Year at the 2014 TrustedReviews Awards, seeing off competition from the likes of the iPhone 6 and the HTC One M8.

A device which has kicked the hotly contested smartphone space into yet another gear, the LG G3 pairs a hugely impressive specs sheet with an innovative, near bezel free design.

Having received praise from both the voting public and our panel of expert judges, the G3 shook the market back in June by adding a 5.5-inch QHD display into a frame no larger than some 5-inch handsets.

While a laser focused 13-megapixel camera and rear-mounted controls also feature, this push to a 2560 x 1440 pixel panel has since sparked a number of rivals to follow suit – including Samsung with the Galaxy Note 4.

LG G3 Stylus Review: The Pen Isn’t Mightier Than the Touchscreen
News from NDTV:

LG is really looking to capitalise on the success of the G3. In addition to the low-priced G3 Beat, which we reviewed a little while ago, the company has also rolled out another model – the G3 Stylus. As its name suggests, the unique touch this time is a stylus. Very few companies still design phones with styli, so LG’s latest model already stands out.

Before Apple declared that human thumbs were the best way to go about implementing touch interfaces (and the rest of the world followed suit), such phones were a lot more common. Today, Samsung’s Galaxy Note models are really the only phones we can think of that still emphasise stylus input, and to be fair, they’ve done a really good job of it. The Galaxy Note and all its successors to date have been high-end flagship phones, with powerful hardware and a whole ecosystem of apps that take advantage of the whole package. With a name derived from the formidable LG G3 (

2013 may be the year of the flexible screen

2013 may be the year of the flexible screen
News from Digital Trends:

The flexible smartphone screen may soon lose its science fiction status and become science fact, as Samsung and LG work hard on a new technology which could change the face of smartphone design in 2013.

Could 2013 bring with it one of the biggest revolutions in mobile phone design since the advent of the touchscreen? If the growing rumors surrounding flexible displays are true, and that one of the major manufacturers will release a device with a bendable screen next year, then yes, we could see the start of a huge trend. While flexible smartphone screens will be new to most of us, the technology has been around for some time, and is already in several devices; you just may not realize it.

A decade of hype

Reports of companies developing flexible displays date back more than a decade, with a startup named Universal Display being linked with their development in 2002. Universal Display is now at the forefront of rese…………… continues on Digital Trends

News from HardwareZone.com:

 

If 2012 is known as the year of smartphones with 4.7-inch displays, 2013 will be the year of 5-inch mobile devices. 

According to DigiTimes, industry sources claim that a number of phone makers are expected to roll out smartphone models with 5-inch full HD displays in the first half of 2013. While companies such as LG and Samsung are able to manufacture display panels in-house, other phone vendors can obtain supplies from Japan Display (JDI), Sharp or LG.

The latest report does not come as a surprise since a number of phone makers have announced devices or are alleged to be introducing phones with bigger displays. Taiwanese phone maker HTC currently leads the pack with the 5-inch Butterfly, which was announced last week.

New comScore stats show Apple passing LG to become number two phone …
News from PhoneDog:

It’s been a few months since we last checked in on research firm comScore’s market share stats for the U.S., so that’s precisely what we’ll do on this fine Friday evening. ComScore has released its market share report for the three-month period starting in July 2012 and ending in October 2012 and, at least on the phone OEM side of things, there actually was a bit of a shake-up in the standings this time around.

Samsung once again finished atop the OEM mountain with a 26.3 percent share, a growth of 0.7 percent from July to October. Moving into second place is Apple, which managed to grow 1.5 percent, enough to end up with a 17.8 percent share and leapfrog LG for the silver position in the standings. LG’s share of the market dropped 0.8 percent to finish at 17.6 percent, giving it third place. We’ve watched in recent months as LG has

Google Nexus rumors suggest phones from Samsung, LG, and Sony this year

Google Nexus rumors suggest phones from Samsung, LG, and Sony this year
News from Android Community:

The time for those Nexus device rumors to start heating up is now. Earlier today we saw a leaked spec sheet claiming Samsung was preparing another Galaxy Nexus-like device, possible the Galaxy Nexus II, and now we have an entirely new spin to the rumor. Do you think we’ll see multiple “Nexus” phones this year? Read on to find out.

Back in May the WSJ suggested Google could be offering as many as 5 Nexus devices this year from multiple hardware partners. We already have the Nexus 7 from ASUS, and new reports are now suggesting more this fall from Samsung, LG, and even the folks at Sony. A new report from AndroidNoodles claims NTT DoCoMo has three different Nexus branded devices all on their roadmap for this winter.

Leaked LG LS970 phone has quad-core Snapdragon S4 and 2GB RAM, coming Q4 this year

Leaked LG LS970 phone has quad-core Snapdragon S4 and 2GB RAM, coming Q4 this year
News from MobileSyrup.com:

Leaked LG LS970 phone has quad-core Snapdragon S4 and 2GB RAM, coming Q4 this year

A leaked spec sheet for an upcoming LG phone is, if true, a good indicator of what we can expect in the Android world by the end of the year. As quad-core + HSPA+ gives way to quad-core + LTE, the market also seems to be shifting to more RAM as a way to differentiate. At least, that’s what LG is doing.

The leaked LS970 looks to be packed with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 APQ8064 built on Qualcomm’s 28nm Krait architecture, and a separate MDM9615 LTE chip, similar to the non-integrated method used in the Snapdragon S3 series. The reason? Unlike the dual-core S4 chips which are…………… continues on MobileSyrup.com

Google Wallet Mobile Payment Portfolio Grows From Two Phones to Four
News from Wired News:

The third Google Wallet phone: Virgin Mobile’s LG Optimus Elite. Image: Virgin Mobile USA

By the end of the month, Google Wallet will be available on twice as many phones as before — the portfolio is growing from two to four.

Baby steps, right?

On Friday, LG announced that its Optimus Elite handset will hit Virgin Mobile USA on May 15, and feature compatibility with Wallet, Google’s mobile payments platform. Wallet ties into the Near Field Communication (NFC) chips found in a growing number of phones. To make a small retail purchase like a cup of coffee or bagel, users can wave their Wallet-enabled phone over a check-out scanner, rather than paying with a credit card or cash.

When it goes on sale, the Optimus Elite will be just the third Google Wallet-friendly handset released thus far, following 2010′s Samsung Nexus S and the Gal…………… continues on Wired News

LG Aims to Sell 80M Phones, 35M Smartphones and 8M LTE Smartphones This Year
News from TechnoBuffalo:

LG has struggled to gain smartphone momentum in previous quarters, but this year the company hopes to get the ship back on course. Speaking to the Korea Times recently, LG’s mobile head Park Jong-seok said LG hopes to drastically increase phone sales in 2012. “This year, we are aiming to sell 80 million handsets including 35 million smartphones,” Jong-seok said. “But more importantly, LG aims to sell 8 million LTE smartphones.” LG hopes its brand new quad-core Optimus 4X HD makes a big splash with consumers, too. “I think LTE, high-definition and quad-core will be the key words this year,” Jong-seok added. “With fine-tuned technology and stra…………… continues on TechnoBuffalo

LG Connect 4G: Full Review
News from LAPTOP Magazine:

Look ma, no contract! The $ 319 LG Connect 4G, MetroPCS’s flagship phone, plans to dispel the prepaid stereotypes with a 3-punch combo of 4G LTE speeds, a 1.2-GHz dual-core processor and affordable, no-commitment data plans. You can literally save a grand versus the competition over two years. But will you be happy living with this Android 2.3 smartphone?

Design

Click to EnlargeThe LG Connect 4G has a rather unassuming design. A glossy 4-inch touch screen display dominates the front wrapped in a shiny black bezel. A chrome LG logo and a VGA front-facing camera sit at the top of the display while the standard Android capacitive buttons (Menu, Home, Back, Search) line the bottom.

A thick glossy plastic band surrounds the top half the Connect 4G. From there, dark gray matte plastic tapers into the rear panel which has a herringbone-type pattern that gives the phone a firm, textured grip.

Hands-On With The LG Spectrum: So Last Year

Hands-On With The LG Spectrum: So Last Year
News from TechCrunch:

Here at CES 2012, phones are a bit in short supply. At least, new phones are. LG is one of the few companies to officially announce a new smartphone at the show, and I have to say it’s one of the best phones we’ve seen out of LG. Unfortunately, that still leaves the Spectrum quite a ways behind some of the other new phones we’ve seen recently like the Xperia S, Titan 2, or the Galaxy Nexus (of course).

The real stand-out feature here is the 4.5-inch 720p display with a True HD Graphic Engine and Corning Gorilla glass, boasting 326ppi. The phone also touts Verizon’s 4G LTE, which is mostly solid unless it’s December.

The Spectrum has a .4-inch waist line, and a glossy back panel which is a far cry from the more premium feel of the LG Nitro HD. What’s odd is that the Spectrum is actually meant to be an equally high-end phone, but takes prints so poorly and is so obviously plastic that it feels kind of cheap.

Under the hood you’ll find a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, 4GB of on-board memory, and 1GB of RAM. The phone also comes with…………… continues on TechCrunch

LG on the Fence Still With Intel Medfield Phones, Tablets
News from Gotta Be Mobile:

Phone- and tablet-maker LG is still undecided about the prospect of utilizing Intel’s mobile Medfield chipset on its smartphones and tablets. LG has previously been using ARM-based processors on its devices, and the switch to Intel’s Atom-based Medfield CPU is still up in the air right now despite the fact that LG was among the first out of the gate with a conceptual prototype of a Medfield smartphone several years ago that was coupled with Intel’s then Moblin OS, which has been transitioned to MeeGo and now to Tizen.

LG Proof-of-Concept Medfield GW990 Phone with Moblin OS.

A few years ago at CES, LG had demonstrated the GW990, which had an ultra-wide display aspect ratio of 21:9, rather than the 16:9 common on many Android phones today. The company did not commercialize the GW990 and says that it was only a proof-of-concept device.

Prior to CES, there were speculations that LG would partner with Intel to debut some Medfield devices, but that did not materialize at this year’s show. Instead,
