Another mobile company, LG, will be producing its own system-on-a-chip (SoC) chipsets very soon. Samsung’s got its Exynos chips, Apple’s got its own A-series of SoCs, and LG will join them with some personalised SoCs of its own: the so-called Odin chip. (more…)

Even though the LG G Flex was a flawed device, it was still one of the most interesting to hit the market in the last couple of years. The screen was extremely disappointing, even though the form factor was some new and added something to the experience. We’re still waiting to see what LG is planning for this product’s future, and today we get some hints on what to expect. (more…)

LG designing a 3G-connected smartwatch

Gear-S

The smartwatch market is still in its infancy and still many questions remain about why we would actually want to use it on a regular basis. One of the arguments put forth by manufacturers is that it can completely replace your smartphone, and wouldn’t need to be tethered to one.

Samsung believe there is a market for such a device and has already launched the Gear S (pictured above), a 3G connected smartwatch that can make phone calls and it brings basically all other smartphone functionality you would need (i.e. email, maps, etc). (more…)

LG officially announces the G Watch R

LG is not leaving a lot to announce at the IFA 2014 trade show. They have taken the wraps off of their circular smartwatch, called the G Watch R (presumably for ‘round’).

According to LG, it is the first “watch-style” wearable in the world. It will be using a P-OLED display, and will be utilizing 100% of the watch face for the screen. Motorola’s reluctance to thoroughly explain the need for the small black bar at the bottom of the Moto 360 does seem to be costing them now. (more…)

With the release of Android Wear open up a whole new world of possibilities for the wearable market and until now we have only seen a couple of companies take advantage of it. One of them is LG, with the release of the LG G Watch.

Media impressions have been patchy at best, with the entire industry looking to the Moto 360 to be the saviour of public opinion when it comes to Android wearables. The 360 will most likely be revealed at IFA 2014, but it seems that LG will try to take advantage of much of the hype coming from the 360 with a circular smartwatch of their own. (more…)

LG G Watch 2 launching already?

LG-G-Watch-Android

It has only been a couple of months since the LG G Watch debuted at Google I/O, but it seems LG already have plans to release a successor. Rumours are suggesting that the company could introduce a G Watch 2 at IFA next month.

If I had paid hard-earned money to buy a G Watch only to find out that a new one is dropping a couple of months later I would certainly be peeved (to say the least). Why would LG have such a short turnaround time between wearables? It might be because of the short amounts of time between Samsung releasing their various wearables. (more…)

If you haven’t used an LG in recent years, the LG G3 may get some getting used to. But if you are in the market for a new Android device, you’ll be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t go to a store and handle this device.

We think this is a great device, and now anyone in SA can get their hands on it. Read more about the G3 here.

LG G3 Review: Bow to the new Android King

Last year LG released one of the most critically acclaimed smartphones of the year, the LG G2. After rebranding the old Optimus brand, the LG G2 was the successor to the Optimus G, at least in spirit. The LG G2 completely set itself apart from the Optimus G, though, and quickly became LG’s best-selling smartphone.

Now LG brings us the LG G3, available in South Africa from 1 August, and it’s trying to take everything on board from fans and critics alike and apply to the design of its latest flagship to appeal to all. Does it succeed in improving everything we didn’t like about the G2 while consolidating its successes from that device?

Before we find out, check out some of the key features of the G3: (more…)
