The morning of Friday, February 27th saw LG Electronics launch two new handsets in Cape Town, South Africa: The high-end G Flex 2, and the budget-conscious C50.

Hosted at the One & Only, in Cape Town’s V&A Waterfront, LG punted the G Flex 2 under the auspices of the device’s newer form factor. Harking from both the design language inaugurated with the flagship G3 handset and the original G Flex, the G Flex 2 is an impressive specimen of a smartphone.

Dress debate

If you have been on the internet at all today, chances are that you would have stumbled across the dress debacle.

It all started out quite innocently. Yesterday, someone posted a picture of a dress on Tumblr, asking users to identify the colour of a dress. And while it might seem like an innocent question to ask, it in fact started the debate of the century (in internet terms.)

The thing is, people across the globe seem to be divided as to what the actual colour of the dress is. While some people see the dress as white and gold, others see the dress as blue and black.

But just how can it be that people can see such opposing colours in the same dress? Well, luckily there is science behind it.  (more…)

StowerKeeping your smartphone on the air has become an eternal struggle. Apart from carrying your charging cable in your back pocket, you need to think about whether or not you will have access to electricity where ever you might find yourself. Eskom even throws in the difficulty multiplier called Loadshedding.

Now imagine your aren’t going to be anywhere near a wall socket for a few days? What are your options? Lug around multiple power packs and extra batteries (sorry iPhone users, that isn’t an option)? Why not use something more sustainable like converting the energy your camp fire produces into electrical energy that charges your phone! (more…)

apple_batteryAh battery life, the bane of a smartphone user’s existence. Clearly classified as a first world problem, but can give you grey hairs and increased blood pressure any day of the week. A recent poll of over 3,100 9to5Mac readers indicates that most are not satisfied with current-generation iPhone battery life.

Although the iPhone 6 has come a long way since the almost continuously tethered iPhone 5, it is still miles behind something like the HTC One M8 which can easily last up to two days. (more…)

The handset vendor also mentioned that the curve adds to the durability of the device, with LG’s P-OLED display combined with the “Dura-Glass Guard” making the handset 20 percent more durable. (more…)

One major reason is the fact that they are competitively priced, while offering a top of the line experience in their specific segments.

Chief among the devices on the lower end of the price scale is the Moto E. The second iteration has come around, and fixed one shortcoming it always had that meant many turned away: LTE.
