LG Optimus L9 Review

LG has certainly been on a roll recently. They made Google's newest Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 4, and they released their new flagship device, the Optimus G, just recently on AT&T. However, LG isn't just about the high-end game. They came out with a set of mid-range Optimus devices throughout the summer, and their latest one is the Optimus L9, which was released through T-Mobile on Halloween. We ended up getting our hands on one and decided to run it through its paces to see if it's worthy of the $79.99 price tag. Let's see how it fared.

Google working on a fix for Android SMS-phishing vulnerability

Today we're getting a bit of alarming news, with researchers at NC State University discovering a SMS-phishing flaw in multiple Android platforms. The flaw allows malicious apps to create and "send" fake SMS messages to the user, potentially getting them to hand over personal information. The good news is that Google got to work on a patch for the vulnerability shortly after it became aware of the issue, so at least the big G is acting fast in this case.

LG Nexus 4 hands-on and first impressions

Google is bringing on the next generation of vanilla-flavored Android with the LG Nexus 4, a combination, it seems, of the Samsung Galaxy Nexus and the LG Optimus G. The massive processor and the operating system on this device are the real heroes, of course, starting with the 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdradon S4 Pro SoC with Adreno 320 graphics under the hood - Qualcomm's biggest and best yet. You'll be working with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean+ (the newest version, newer than 4.1 Jelly Bean that was released earlier this year), this including a lovely new collection of features shown just this week by Google.

Samsung Galaxy Premier struts its stuff in leaked press shot

The Samsung Galaxy S III Mini may be soaking up most of the attention at the moment, but there's been a leak for another Samsung device and despite previous rumors, it doesn't appear to have anything to do with the new Nexus phone. The leak is of the Samsung GT-i9260, which was rumored to be the next Nexus device at one point in time, but looking at the leaked image below, we can see that the phone is running TouchWiz over Jelly Bean. So, since we know it won't be a Nexus phone, it's time to say hello to the Samsung Galaxy Premier.
