LG has released a neat infographic which shows how they feel we use our smartphones. Rather than tell us what apps they think we use, they concentrated on the where and when of using a smartphone. We hate to say it, but they’re probably dead on.
If you were wondering fit he LG G Flex would be available in your area, there is good news. The G Flex will be carried by Orange, which uses the EE network in the UK but their own in other areas. The device will be available in France, starting in February, but no other details were provided.
In the case of new and rather eccentric devices, some amount of introduction, and definitely some persuasion, might be necessary to acclimatize consumers, and hopefully convince them to part with a bit of their cash. And if a picture is worth a thousand words, then a pair of video ads about the LG G Flex curved smartphone might just do the trick.
With the announcement of the Nexus 5, a lot of interested buyers have been wondering when Google's latest smartphone will be making its way to their favorite carriers. While T-Mobile earlier left a rather vague message that the smartphone will be available in the coming weeks, this latest leak puts a definite timestamp on that schedule.
The LG G Flex officially has our attention. With its amazing specs and seemingly outstanding durability, the G Flex has the chance to be a truly world class device. While it looks great, and performs well, we wonder if we’ll ever see it released for mass consumption. According to LG, it will.
LG’s G Flex seemed like an “also ran” device, as it technically launched after the Samsung Galaxy Round. It curved the opposite direction, on a horizontal axis (in portrait) rather then a vertical. Definitely interesting, everyone wrote it off as a bit of curiosity, and not so much a serious device.
While a number of smartphone manufacturers have ridden on the Android 4.4 release frenzy and announced or teased their upcoming update schedule, LG has so far kept mum. But while the Korean manufacturer isn't saying a word, French carrier SFR has spilled the beans and revealed that the LG G2 will be getting its Android 4.4 update around December.
LG is making it much easier for Developers to get their hands on reference hardware. Starting today, LG is allowing those who are interested to get their hands on a loaner device. The sign-up page is currently a sparse “create an account” destination, but the reach is promising.
Although Android 4.4 is now out, only the newly launched Nexus 5 officially has this latest Android version. That, of course, hasn't stopped the Android community from immediately getting Android 4.4 onto other devices that may never receive an official update. This growing roster of older devices now includes LG's previous flagship, the LG Optimus G.
On paper the Nexus 5 appears to have lots to offer. Aside from being the first handset to run Android 4.4 Kit Kat, there is also a 5-inch Full HD display, 8 megapixel rear-facing camera with optical image stabilization, LTE network support and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor. The handset also has a 2300 mAh battery, which looks like it will be getting a boost courtesy of Qualcomm.
