Apple last week made an important privacy statement and told customers that it values their privacy and it further wants to help them secure personal data including messages, calls and photos by encrypting them. Similarly, Google plans to turn on personal data encryption by default in Android L to further guard user data. On top of these default practices available in iOS 8 and coming to future Android devices, The Associated Press has highlighted other means that can help iOS and Android users (at least on some devices) to protect their photos, at least temporarily.

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 →
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 →

Although we haven’t yet used the LG G3 extensively enough to write a full review, the look of the phone alone is terrific and a huge improvement over the LG G2 in just about every way. Speaking with Trusted Reviews, LG design executive Chul Bae Lee revealed that he’d originally pushed to make the G3 even better looking by making its side bezels even slimmer than they are right now.

Just a few short months after the release of the G2, LG is back with a brand-new flagship device. The G3 has been leaked more extensively than any other phone in recent memory, but the leaks don’t distract from what might be the best oversized Android smartphone ever made.
As with last year’s model, the LG G3 features top-of-the-line specifications. At 5.5 inches, the G3 towers over its competition, making a strong case for the ever-increasing size of the flagship smartphone. Inside, the G3 contains a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. More →
Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to meet one of the most exciting new smartphones of 2014… again. Details surrounding LG’s new G3 smartphone have been leaking constantly for the past few months, and things came to a head when LG Netherlands accidentally posted official press images of the G3 as well as the flagship phone’s complete specs.

Rarely do we see a smartphone leak as extensively as the LG G3 did ahead of Tuesday’s official unveiling — just about everything you could possibly want to know about LG’s 2014 flagship phone has already leaked. In fact, LG itself became the biggest culprit on Monday when LG Netherlands accidentally published a dozen official images of the G3 along with the phone’s complete specs. LG put a lot of time and money into its three simultaneous G3 press conferences on Tuesday, however, and BGR will be on hand at the New York event with live coverage. After all, the least you can do is play along and act surprised.
Bookmark this link, which will go live shortly before the event starts later today, and make sure to head there for our live coverage and streaming video of LG’s press conference! Coverage will begin just before 1:00 p.m. EDT / 10:00 a.m. PDT.
Releasing a new flagship smartphone has become tricky because you don’t want to release it too closely to new Samsung flagships that launch in the spring or new iPhones that launch in the fall. With this in mind, it looks like LG will be releasing its latest flagship device in July, according to a new report from ZDNet Korea. More →
Is being “waterproof” the next must-have feature for any respectable smartphone? Korean website ITToday reports that several new smartphones set to be released this year, including Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4 and LG’s upcoming G3 flagship phone, will use the same type of water-resistant casing used by Samsung in its Galaxy S5 phone. That the Galaxy Note 4 will have water-resistant casing isn’t surprising since it’s made by the same company behind the Galaxy S5 but this could mark the first time that an LG flagship phone has featured water-resistant casing. Sony was the first major smartphone manufacturer to emphasize water-resistant casing as a key feature for its smartphones and the rest of the industry has slowly started to follow along.
