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.

Leaked LG G4c: smaller, lesser variation of new flagship

Just like last year's LG G3, which saw various iterations like the G3 Beat, G3 Stylus, etc, the OEMs newest flagship, the LG G4, is poised to spawn off other smaller and probably cheaper variations. A leaked image has been circulating, and it looks like it will be the temporarily-named G4c (let's hope it really is just temporary). While it may look a bit like the flagship, the specs are anything but, as it goes for lesser features, probably to be able to price it cheaper.

LG confirms that G4 does have Quick Charge 2.0

For those who were considering getting the LG G4, probably one of the things stopping them was when the OEM said that their new flagship will not have the Quick Charge 2.0 ability. And in this age where battery and charging issues are a big deal, that was a deal breaker. But now, apparently, LG has backtracked on that statement and is now saying that the G4 will in fact have that feature, bringing a sigh of relief for the potential smartphone buyers.

US Cellular intros LG Logos with gently curved HD display

After the LG G4, LG has announced a new smartphone in the form of the LG Logos. Actually, it was a silent announcement as it was only US Cellular who posted the unit ready for public consumption. This isn't premium as the leather-backed LG G4 but it's curvy, bold, and powerful for its affordable price and specs that are good enough.

LG Watch Urbane gets iFixit teardown, relatively easy repair

The iFixit team has put LG’s top-of-the-line Android Wear smartwatch – the LG Watch Urbane – squarely in its sights for a teardown treatment. Smartwatches are generally more prone to issues and breaks than smartphones, given the watches’ proximity to bodily movement. The teardown would most likely show if the LG Watch Urbane would at least be easy to repair, if needed.

Try out the LG G4 with their new Consumer Trial Program

You seem interested in LG's newest flagship, the LG G4. However, you're still not sure if it will be the right, new fit, for you, smartphone-wise. Yes, you can go everyday to your nearest gadget shop and try out the demo unit, but eventually, they'll get suspicious of you and your intentions towards the LG G4. So LG has launched a Consumer Trial Program to keep you out of jail, and at the same time, get to try out their newest smartphone.

LG wants you to compare G4 to iPhone 6, 6Plus

The LG G4 just launched a few days back, and as expected, people are relatively pleased with it. Among Android flagship phones, it will be competing with the very strong performing Samsung Galaxy S6, its edgy brother the Galaxy S6 Edge, the HTC One M9, and the upcoming Sony Xperia Z4. But in its detail web pages, it seems like LG really wants Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users to compare their screens with the G4, as if the latest iPhones are the real competition.

Android Community Weekly Digest: May 2, 2015

April might be over, but the month definitely went out with a bang. And although a lot of things did happen in those 30 long days, we cannot deny the commanding presence of the LG G4, which was finally officially revealed after half a dozen teasers, which actually didn't leave much to be surprised about.

LG is wasting no time in promoting their freshly released new flagship, the LG G4.

They've also launched the tag for their marketing campaign for their new baby, which is "See the great, fell the great". Okay, it's not exactly groundbreaking, but sounds pleasant enough right?
