A lot of consumers dislike Android vendor UI software. There are Android skins and software tweaks like Samsung?s TouchWiz and HTC?s Sense that divide opinion, with Samsung's brand getting particular wrath from Android purists. However, for whatever reason companies are continuing to push away from the stock Android experience and LG is the latest to really get behind its own UI.
LG?s L Series is a well-received range of smartphones that nestles nicely into the budget market, giving the likes of Samsung and Motorola some Android competition. However, dare we say it, the L Series has always been decent, looked okay, and performed well, but the devices have always lacked that touch of magic; passion like we sense in the Moto G for example. That has changed today with the launch of a couple of new L Series handsets.
LG has filed a patent for a new phone design, but you may see something strangely familiar about the handset. Of course, patent filings are nothing new, but when they happen to look an awful lot like another smartphone on the market then it is worth looking at.
Is it us, or do product cycles seem to be getting shorter? We think so, and if this latest rumour about LG is true then we have entered a new level altogether. According to some reports today, the Korean company will announced a sequel to its G Watch Android Wear toting smart watch at the IFA trade show in Berlin next month.
LG has today rolled out an LTE version of its G Pad 8.0, bringing superfast data connection to the small tablet. The company issued a press release stating that the new variation of the slate will begin shipping in Europe next week, before moving to Central and South America, Asia, and Russia in the following weeks.
If you are rocking the new LG G3 then you may want to head over to YouTube if you haven't already. That's because some users are claiming that they can watch videos that take advantage of the G3's amazing screen, with all its resolution.
When the LG G3 Stylus was ousted last week, we speculated that it was unlikely to be a full blown competitor to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the current king of the phablet market. Despite boasting the G3 flagship branding and packing a stylus, we figured that LG would steer its newest handset away from Samsung's juggernaut flagship and straight for the mid-range niche.
There are a few reasons why Samsung's Galaxy Note range of smartphones have been the standalone kings of the phablet niche. Arguably the chief reason is the S Pen, a stylus lookalike that actually has a lot more going for it and has never really been mimicked by other large screen devices. Until now that is, because Samsung's Korean compatriot LG is about to launch a smartphone that will pack its own stylus.
If you are one of the users who has been affected by a corrosion problem on the charging pins for the LG G Watch then you may want to read on. The Korean company is rolling out an update that it says will solve the issue that has befell a sizeable number of early G Watch adopters.
The LG G Vista is a device we have been waiting to see for some time and now Verizon has confirmed that the smartphone will land on July 31st.
