May 22, 15 LG outs mid-range G4 Stylus, G4c devices

Posted by in Gadgets, Mobile

Similar to last year, LG also unveiled two mid-range versions of its new flagship G4 – the G4 Stylus and the G4c smartphones. While these may seem to be alternative choices, these two new G4 variants pose different specifications. Aside from being the only G4 variant that comes with a built-in stylus pen, the G4 Stylus sports a larger 5.7-inch display, a variation of 1.2Ghz quad-core chip and 13MP rear camera for its LTE version, and a 1.4GHZ octa-core chip and an 8-megapixel camera for the 3G-equipped model. LG G4 Stylus specs 5.7-inch HD IPS display, 1280×720, 258ppi 1.2GHz Quad-Core chip (LTE) / 1.4GHz Octa-Core chip (3G) 1GB RAM 8GB Internal storage expandable via microSD 13MP (LTE) or 8MP (3G)  rear camera 5MP front camera LTE / 3G HSPA+ Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, A-GPS, Glonass 3,000mAh removable battery Android 5.0 Lollipop 154.3 x 79.2 x 9.6mm, 163g Colors: Metallic Silver, Floral White Meanwhile, the LG G4c touts to be a compact version of the flagship device with toned-down specifications: a five-inch screen, a 1.2GHz quad-core chip, and 4G LTE connectivity with Android Lollipop out of the box. The specs point out to be an upgraded LG G3 Beat LG G4c specs 5.0-inch HD IPS display, 1280×720, 294ppi 1.2GHz Quad-Core chip 1GB RAM 8GM ROM expandable via microSD 8MP rear camera 5MP front camera 4G LTE, 3G HSPA+ Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, A-GPS, Glonass Android 5.0 Lollipop 2,540mAh (removable) 139.7 x 69.8 x 10.2mm, 136g Metallic Gray / Ceramic White / Shiny Gold Pricing and availability for both devices are still unmentioned as of this week, but LG assures that these devices are coming to key markets ‘in the coming weeks’.

LG’s new Windows Phone costs only $120

May 16, 15 LG’s new Windows Phone costs only $120

Posted by in Gadgets, Mobile

LG isn’t really new to making Windows Phones, but it has been a long time since it actually made one. This week, the Korean tech giant took the wraps off the Lancet, a 4.5-inch device that runs on the latest Windows 8.1 Phone OS. Given its price point, the hardware are pretty much what we would see on any other recent entry-level handset — it’s sporting a Snapdragon 410 chipset, an expandable 8GB internal storage, and an eight-megapixel rear camera in tow. LG Lancet specs 4.5-inch FWVGA display, 854 x 480, 218ppi 1.2GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 MSM8916 chipset no RAM information 8GB internal storage expandable via microSD card 8MP rear camera with LED Flash VGA front camera CDMA WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS Windows Phone 8.1 2100mAh battery The only downside so far? It only works on US Telecom Verizon’s CDMA network, which can be an indicator that we may not see it soon in the country. It sells for $120 off contract, or roughly Php 5,400 when converted.

LG Optimus L Series II gets the “KnockON” treatment

Remember that “KnockON” feature that LG first introduced on their G2 phone? Well, LG decided it’s too useful not to expand it to their mid-range Android phones as well. “KnockON” allows you to sleep or wake your smartphone simply by doing a double tap (or knock) on the screen. This will greatly extend the life of your Power button since you don’t have to press it when using KnockON. This user-friendly feature will make its way to the mid-range Optimus L Series II smartphones this month through a global maintenance release so watch out for it soon.

LG intros slimmer version of their Pocket Photo Printer

Over at the recently-concluded CES, LG introduced the next generation of its Pocket Photo Printer. This portable printer allows you to print photos from your smartphone wirelessly without the use of any ink cartridge. The LG Pocket Photo 2.0 is very similar to the first Pocket Photo which we reviewed before in terms of functionality. The main difference is that it’s now slimmer with a rounded edge where the paper comes out, and comes in more colors. It also has a longer battery life now allowing you to print 30 photos in one charge. Through the use of a downloadable app (iOS, Android, WP8), you can edit your photos before sending it to the printer via Bluetooth of NFC. It uses ZINK or “zero ink” paper which allows printing without any ink cartridge. All the colors are on the paper and the device will heat it to bring out the correct color per pixel. Really handy and fun to use during parties. It’s not a must-have device but with Filipinos being rather fond of taking selfies or taking Instax photos, it’s really a nice-to-have device for the smartphone user. We’ll keep you posted on local availability and pricing. Related posts: No related...

LG G2 Review: Hitting all targets that matter

Dec 01, 13 LG G2 Review: Hitting all targets that matter

Posted by in Featured, Mobile, Reviews

LG took its time to make its way back in people’s radar as a premium phone manufacturer. Their flagship Optimus phones didn’t really cut it in the unforgiving mobile market but with their latest G2 phone, they’re now back in the game and gunning for the lead. We’ve talked about the LG G2 a few times already in the past but haven’t really gotten a proper review for it. I’ve been using one for a couple of months already and I can’t seem to grow tired of it considering I’ve been switching Android phones fairly quickly as a tech reviewer. It’s just that good, but you probably know that already. Anyway, let’s start with our review shall we? Design LG gave the G2 a minimalistic yet sleek design, but with practical reasons for doing so. For example, the 5.2-inch screen may seem unusual but according to their engineers, it’s the optimize size for one-handed mobile phone operation. This is made more manageable with the ultra-thin bezels on the side and minimal wasted space on top and bottom making the G2 a compact above 5-inch phone. The front is covered with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 with no physical buttons whatsoever. At the top of the display is the 2.1-megapixel front camera, proximity sensor, and a status LED that lights up in different colors depending on the type of notification which you can customize. There’s nothing much happening on the sides in terms of physical ports and buttons. The microSIM slot tray is located on the left side and the bottom has the 3.5mm audio jack and the MHL-enabled microUSB port. Main buttons are actually found at the back just below the 13-megapixel camera and its LED flash. The reason behind this is actually clever. LG believed that as phones get bigger, people are more likely to drop them if they keep on fumbling for the buttons on the sides. With the G2’s back button it will feel more natural (eventually) for you to use your...

LG launches world’s first Curved OLED TV and it’s freakishly thin

Nov 27, 13 LG launches world’s first Curved OLED TV and it’s freakishly thin

Posted by in Audio & Video

Last night we encountered the world’s first curved OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TV and it’s from LG. Now you may ask, why would you want a curved TV? Well if you want that viewing experience you get from IMAX theaters at the comfort of your home, that’s what the curved TV is for. It’s the next evolution of home entertainment viewing. The curved display basically fills even your peripheral vision with whatever you’re viewing when you’re at a comfortable distance. This will make whatever you’re watching more engrossing without distraction from people passing beside the TV. Aside from the curved 55-inch Full HD display which is gorgeous by the way, I also noticed how surprisingly thin this TV is. It only measures just about 4.3mm thin which is thinner than most smartphones. This is made possible with the OLED panel using 10 less layers than your conventional LED TV. It also uses 4 pixel colors – RGB plus White, making it 2 million more sub-pixels than RGB panels to give you richer colors. Being OLED, this TV also consumes less power than its LED counterpart. The back of the TV is made of Carbon Fiber-Reinforced Plastic to add strength to the delicate-looking features or the curved screen. The only thick portion is at the back where the ports are located and where all the magic happens. This TV can do all the nifty things previously seen on LG Smart TVs, but in a thinner package. It supports 3D viewing with the use of LG’s powerless 3D glasses. It has Time Machine to schedule and record your programs. It also uses LG’s magic remote with voice recognition to make navigation easier especially when using its Smart TV functions. I also noticed the wavy transparent design of its stand which houses the transparent film-type 40W speakers, another world’s first from LG. At the moment, only a 55-inch Curved OLED TV (LG 55EA9800) is available in the market but bigger models with 4K resolution will come...
