You’ll never guess the first non-Google device that’s getting Android 5.0

Everyone with an Android device is waiting anxiously for their turn to download Android 5.0 Lollipop, but it looks like LG G3 owners will be the first to get their chance later this week. LG announced on Sunday that the G3 would be the very first phone to receive the 5.0 update, which should begin rolling out in Poland this week and other markets in the near future. More →

LG 0.7mm Bezel Smartphone Display

This is the groundbreaking display that might be on your next smartphone

This is the groundbreaking display that might be on your next smartphone

LG Display on Thursday took the wraps off its next-generation smartphone display, which will have the “world’s narrowest” bezel, measuring just 0.7mm (image above). It’s not clear at this point what kind of smartphones will make use of it in the future, or whether a variation of it will be found on the G3 successor next year. LG also supplies displays to other smartphone vendors, of course, so it could make its way to other phones as well. More →

One 2014’s best Android phones is getting an unexpectedly speedy Lollipop update

After Motorola confirmed that it plans to issue fast Android 5.0 Lollipop updates to some of its Android handsets and just after Samsung teased a Lollipop update for the Galaxy Note 4, one other company is apparently interested in bringing Android 5.0 to its 2014 flagship surprisingly quickly after Google releases it.

Galaxy Note 4 vs LG G3 Stylus

How LG plans to beat the Galaxy Note 4 at its own game

By on August 5, 2014 at 7:30 PM.

How LG plans to beat the Galaxy Note 4 at its own game

Samsung will unveil the Galaxy Note 4 on September 3rd at IFA 2014, and will likely release the handset in the following weeks in an attempt to beat the 5.5-inch iPhone 6 to market. LG is more than aware that the Galaxy Note 4’s arrival may threaten its G3 flagship handset, and the company is apparently already working on a device that’s supposed to neutralize the threat. No, the company will not launch a next-gen G Pro model already. All it needs to compete against the Galaxy Note 4 is a stylus and a slightly bigger display – after all, the G3’s gorgeous screen is almost as big as most phablets. More →

Save $100 on the new king of Android phones

BGR reviewed LG’s G3 smartphone earlier this week and we called it the new king of Android phones. The flagship devices features cutting-edge specs and is the first mass-market smartphone to sport a quad HD (2K) display with a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch, making it sharper than anything else on the market by a landslide. Despite the fact that the G3 just launched in the United States last week, interested consumers can already get their hands on this great smartphone for $100 off the standard purchase price. More →

Verizon LG G3 Bloatware Uninstall

Here’s how Verizon’s Android bloatware might become the best ever

Here’s how Verizon’s Android bloatware might become the best ever

One of the reasons users passionately hate carriers is the bloatware they fill Android devices with, as in many cases a mobile operator’s app collection that comes preloaded on a new handset may be somewhat difficult to remove for an average user. In some countries, there already are laws that require carriers to let their subscribers delete any apps they want on a handset, but that’s hardly a widespread practice. Luckily for Verizon customers, Big Red is willing to make some changes to its approach to bloatware, Droid-Life reports, starting with the LG G3. More →

LG G3 review: Android has a new king

LG G3 review: Android has a new king

By on July 24, 2014 at 11:00 AM.

As I walked through Times Square on my way to the office one day last week, something odd caught my eye that made me do a double take. A sizable line had formed outside of the AT&T store as it prepared to open. I have seen people line up outside of that store before, of course, but typically only when a fresh batch of recently launched iPhones is waiting on the other side of the doors.

This time, however, people weren’t lining up to buy a new iPhone. They were lining up for the just-released LG G3.

And truth be told, this is a phone worth lining up for. More →

No, LG, we don’t want to play in your circle

The LG G3 is one of the latest Android beasts to hit stores, and one of the few smartphones that actually packs a high-resolution 2K display that offers users an even better mobile experience, whether they’re browsing the web, watching videos or – especially – playing games. So why on earth would you want G3 buyers to play games that occupy only a tiny portion of that gorgeous new display, LG? More →

LG G3 Waterproof Test

Is the LG G3 waterproof?

Is the LG G3 waterproof?

Officially, the LG G3 is not waterproof, but just as the case was with other hot new Android devices that were dunked in water despite not being water-resistant, a user wanted to see how the G3 fares in the event of unexpected water accidents. As such, he submerged the phone under water in an extensive test. iTechWorld11 posted a video showing the G3 in a prolonged water test, which it successfully survived. More →

These are each of the different LG G3 models launching in the U.S.

The LG G3 has yet to be launched in the U.S., and a new image leak from @evleaks reveals that the main carriers in the region already had their way with the handset. Of the four LG G3 versions going to AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and Verizon, only the Sprint model lacks any carrier branding. And of course, Verizon’s version has more logos on the handset than any other model. More →
