LG have given us a bit of extra info surrounding the upcoming LG G Watch on its website. It will of course be the first smartwatch launched with Google’s Android Wear platform. It seems that it will be available in two colours, and they do look striking, to be honest. (more…)

LG G3’s new UI leaked with sleek, flat design

Published by on Apr 23rd, 2014, No Comments


We recently brought you news that the new LG G3 will most likely have a Quad HD display, and not only does this rumour seem to be confirmed with this leak, but we also see what the new UI will look like.

If you have even used or seen LG’s user interface you will see that it is massively removed from what is used on the current LG’s. The design is much flatter (seems everyone is going down the Apple route), and the icons is much, much brighter. At first glance, it looks very interesting, but we will have to give it a proper go before delivering a final judgement.

Importantly, the screenshots hit the web at a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution, which basically confirms the Quad HD resolution of the screen. This 1,440p display will be the first time in over a year that companies truly push the resolution stakes. (more…)

The LG G3 will have a Quad HD display

Published by on Apr 15th, 2014, No Comments


The internet was abuzz until weeks ago with the possibility of Samsung’s Galaxy S5 having a QHD display, which has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440. The term “Quad” HD comes from the fact that such a screen has twice the amount of pixels as a 720p screen. Alas, the device has a regular 1080p display, but some Chinese manufacturers have released QHD displays on their devices.

Now however, one of the bigger players have accidentally showed their hand with a leaked photograph. (more…)

LG Watch

This week has been massive for smartphones and wearables as a whole, with the launch of Google’s Android Wear, the dedicated Android OS for wearables. LG is the latest company to make an announcement about a new smartwatch which will run Android Wear.

LG’s latest device will be called the G Watch, and will reportedly launch sometime in the next quarter. We have no word on specs or any other details, for that matter, but that is sure to change pretty soon. (more…)

LG G-Pro Lite Review – Bringing large displays to the masses

Published by on Feb 26th, 2014, No Comments

Front2LG is certainly making some waves in the smartphone market. They are no longer the mid-market “we-actually-build-TVs” company that are just competitive enough to keep producing mediocre phones. A bit harsh? Nope. I just wanted to provide some background on the huge contrast we are seeing from LG regarding their smartphone offering. With revolutionary G2 coming out last year the South-Korean company has made all the Android heavyweights sit up and take notice. We were recently invited to the launch of LG’s upcoming flagship the G-Flex and also making a debut is the G-Pro Lite. How do you capture market share in lower income countries? You make owning a smartphone cheaper. The G-Pro Lite ticks all the boxes. (more…)

LG G2 Mini revealed, shrinks size and specs

Published by on Feb 20th, 2014, No Comments


Just last week we reported that LG have ‘officially’ revealed its LG G2 Mini. Now, they have taken the wraps off the devices internals. It seems that the company doesn’t want to be shadowed among all the Android manufacturers that will be releasing their devices at MWC 2014 next week, so they are revealing their devices to the media beforehand.

It does seem that the LG G2 Mini has a couple of drawbacks when compared to its big brother, unlike the Sony Xperia Z1 Compact which managed to cram top end specs into a smaller chassis. The G2 Mini is powered by the older Snapdragon 400 quad-core, has a 4.7 inch display which only has a deflating 960 x 540 qHD resolution. (more…)

The announcement has been made before MEC 2014, which was a surprise, but LG has taken the wraps off of its successor to the LG Optimus G Pro. The G Pro 2 is pretty much what we thought it would be following several leaks. (more…)

LG G2 Mini teaser posted by LG

Published by on Feb 13th, 2014, No Comments


We have previously heard about the possibility of a mini version of LG’s flagship G2 smartphone. As we found out recently when we reviewed the LG G2, it is a great phone. This made us extremely excited to give the LG G2 Mini a go, but we had no idea if it was real.

Now, however, we know that we will get this device sometime in the future. LG have just posted a picture on its Facebook page depicting a smaller version of the G2. The rumours previously stated that it will also have a Snapdragon 800 processor, which means it won’t be watered down version of the G2 like we had with the Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini and the HTC One Mini.
