LG’s first ever Android Wear device, the G Watch, launched less than three months ago, but The Korea Times is reporting that the company is already prepping a sequel for IFA 2014 next month. According to the report, the new smartwatch is tentatively being called the “G Watch 2,” although the name is subject to change before the wearable hits the market. More →
LG may have intentionally leaked the LG G3 Stylus phablet, a G3 variation meant to compete directly against Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 in the following months, but the device won’t be the flagship device fans expect, The Korea Times has learned. More →
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 →
As flagship smartphones continue to grow more giant each year, smartphone vendors have tried to avoid losing customers looking for smaller and more affordable smartphones with “mini” versions of their various hero phones. As it turns out, however, their efforts appear to be failing. More →
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 →
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 →
BGR recently reviewed LG’s new flagship G3, which just launched last week in the United States. We called the phone Android’s new king, supplanting Samsung’s lackluster Galaxy S5, which has been something of a disappointment for many consumers and for Samsung’s bottom line. While LG has a long way to go before it catches up to Samsung in terms of shipments, the company on Thursday reported record smartphone sales for the second quarter. More →
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 →
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 →
Android smartphone buyers who fell in love with LG’s newly launched G3 but would like something smaller yet similar, should know that an LG G3 S is in the making – or a G3 mini. Phone Arena reports that the LG G3 S user manual has been found online, providing more details about the unreleased phone, including pictures, but also specs and features. More →
Verizon customers won’t have to wait much longer to get their hands on one of the best looking Android phones of the year as the carrier revealed on Thursday that the LG G3 will be available starting July 17th. If you’re already sold on the latest LG flagship, you can preorder the G3 right now on Verizon’s website. More →
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 →
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 →
