LG G3

Key Plus allows launch of apps from LG device volume buttons

Much has been said about the patented rear-placed power button and volume rocker of recent LG smartphone devices, but to tell you the truth, it really does make life easier. Key Plus is one of those apps that take advantage of the unique volume button placement on LG smartphones, giving you convenient access to launching apps even when the phone is locked.

LG G4 system apps ported to the G3

Quite recently, you will remember that LG launched its newest flagship smartphone, the LG G4, with a spanking new UX based on Android 5.1. It is not sure whether LG will cascade the new interface to last year’s flagship – the LG G3 – but it has been traditional for the Korean manufacturer to at least bring some features from the flagship to the ones down the line. For now though, we have the next best thing – LG G4 apps ported for the G3.

LG G3 purchase brings free VR headset (limited, US only)

Virtual reality devices still haven't caught on like wildfire for various reasons (too bulky, too expensive) but you can bet that OEMs will continue to sweet talk consumers into trying out their respective devices and the technology itself. LG's marketing is smart enough to know that people will be willing to experience something if it's given for free (well, sort of free) and so now they're offering free VR headsets for those who will purchase their current flagship, the LG G3.

Root script for LG G3, other LG models, Lollipop and KitKat

Holla! This is great news for those of you… err, those of us (this writer is a rabid LG fan) who are having problems getting root access to Lollipop versions of the LG G3 and other older LG models like the G2. As you know, root access is the gateway to tweaking your device, so for those who want to squeeze every last feature out of their phones “no root access” just won’t cut it. Well, rejoice with me all of you – the Android gods of XDA have just delivered an “all LG” rooting script.

LG G4 to be “radically different”, might be the last G

Although LG didn't come to MWC 2015 with a bang as some might hoped, it isn't letting the event pass without getting in a word or two. And while it didn't reveal the LG G4 just yet, it might have dropped a few teasers that will make almost anyone curious about the Korean OEM's plnas for its future flagships. Naturally, it is taking a few cues from its industry rivals, but quite interesting is the hints that LG might be moving on to a different kind of flagship afterwards.

Lollipops rain on some HTC One M7, LG G3, Moto G, Moto X

There's a saying that goes "when it rains, it pours", but this is one rain that mobile users are unlikely to complain about. After some delays and silence on the rollout of Android 5.0, we're now seeing a flood of incoming updates to some smartphones. Sadly, not all models and not all regions are covered by this joyful news. Hopefully, though, it's just the opening salvo that opens the floodgates of Android 5.0 updates everywhere.

LG jumps on the VR bandwagon with Google Cardboard + G3 combo

LG has now decided that it wants in on the virtual reality (VR) headset market, and it’s doing it with current gen technology. The LG G3 is now being partnered with Google Cardboard, those DIY VR headset enthusiasts, and the result is that consumers will now receive a free Google Cardboard VR headset for every LG G3 purchase.

LG G3 discovered to have hidden App Ops feature

Remember App Ops? Maybe not, especially after the heyday of Android Lollipop. It popped up, accidentally according to Google, around Android 4.3 as a way to let users make fine-grained changes to each app's permissions, without requiring root. Google eventually closed off access to App Ops in subsequent updates and we've never heard from it since. Until now. Apparently, LG has the same functionality hidden in the G3, which some have now been able to access, much to the rejoicing of power users.
