LG G3 could possibly come with a QHD screen

With the Samsung Galaxy S5 announcement now completed and the All New HTC One just about leaked in its entirety, focus is shifting towards other flagship phones coming down the pipe, and after the last couple of years we are more and more interested in what’s coming from the ‘other’ South Korean electronics manufacturer – LG. A User Agent Profile for the LG D850. The progression of model #’s for L’s flagship G series has progressed from the LG D802/803 for the LG G2, D820/821 for the Nexus 5.

LG G Flex — Review

LG G Flex — Review

Is curved and flexible something that should be a ‘thing’? LG has been slowly climbing to the top of the Android mobile phone market for a few years, quietly improving their hardware over different models to the point where their flagship G line of phones are anticipated with much enthusiasm. When LG announced they were releasing a curved phone, it was certainly met with curiosity but the addition of a degree of flexibility, as well as the self-healing back, meant that they now had our attention. The G Flex experience begins with the box – it’s curved. The very top[Read More...]

LG on staying ahead of the curve

LG on staying ahead of the curve

The humble mobile phone has been around since the early to mid-80s and, since its introduction as a super large brick shaped device, it’s seen many design iterations. But the design has been obsequiously slabbish since the launch of the iPhone back in 2007, with a blank rectangular glass face, but LG is trying to change that with their latest big phone to launch in Australia – the LG G Flex. The G Flex was announced back in late October, around the same time as another curved phone – the Samsung Galaxy Round – but while the other phone has[Read More...]

The LG G2 Mini is a mini in specs as well as name

The LG G2 Mini is a mini in specs as well as name

It seems the Northern regions are getting a lot of attention recently with pre-announcements for phones, with this time the Netherlands office of LG apparently pre-announcing the LG G2 Mini ahead of the official unveiling at Mobile World Congress at least according to GSMInfo.nl. According to the site, the leaked specs which appeared the other day are correct with the LG G2 Mini being a Mini in name only with none of the higher end specs of its larger, faster brother. The phone will be powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and come with a 4.7″ IPS LCD display with[Read More...]

The L Series was the beginning of the revival of LG’s revival in the Mobile space, especially here in Australia.

Smashed your Nexus 5? Here’s how to repair it.

Red Nexus 5 Press render emerges

Red Nexus 5 Press render emerges

With an announcement of a red Nexus 5 expected on the 4th of Feb in the US, the press renders of the Nexus 5 have shown up today via serial leaker @evleaks. The hotness is really there in this render which shows the red speaker grill on the front and the vibrant red shell on the back. The question is what material the red Nexus 5 will have on the back with the white Nexus 5 feeling slightly more glossy than the more rubberised soft touch plastic on the Black version. We should hopefully see this released into Google Play[Read More...]

LG G Pad 8.3 — Review

LG G Pad 8.3 — Review

Can LG supersize the excellent G2 smartphone and weave the same magic in tablet form? We haven’t seen a lot of activity from LG in the tablet market, despite its relative maturity. Looking back, LG last dipped its toes into the nascent Android tablet market when Honeycomb was officially A Thing with a number of devices that never really set the market alight. The company likely burned itself so badly with those devices that it removed itself from the Android tablet race altogether. It’s interesting that the company chose 2013 – when it was known to be working closely with[Read More...]
