Just last week we got early renders of what LG’s G Flex might look like when we eventually see it. Flexible and curved displays seem to be the new buzzwords following the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Round and this new LG device. An Argentinian broadcasting station got their hands on the device for an on-air review and sent a few high res photos over to The Verge for us to inspect. (more…)
Members of the rooted crowded running an LG G2 on Verizon can go grab the first nightly builds available of CyanogenMod 10.2. For those unfamiliar, CM 10.2 will bring a vanilla Android-like experience to your device, complete with a ton of customization options and tweaks to make sure you are getting the most out of your device. CM is basically the industry standard of custom ROMs for Android. (more…)
There is no denying that people are excited for the Nexus 5. We recently ran a poll asking what the bigger deal was – the Nexus 5, Kit Kat, Google’s reported smartwatch, a new Nexus 10, or something else? The Nexus 5 led the poll by a long shot, so now we want to know exactly why that is. What makes the Nexus 5 so special?
This Nexus device, as I put it in last week’s Droid Life Show, is the first Nexus phone since the Nexus One that really competes against all of the other top tier devices on the market in terms of specs. None of these specs are completely official, but thanks to many leaks and reports we have done, we can pretty much assume that the Nexus 5 will feature a 1080p display, a Snapdragon 800 processor, finally have 4G LTE connectivity, a hopefully-improved camera sensor with possible OIS technology, and of course feature Google’s latest Android OS installment, Android 4.4 “Kit Kat.”
All of these things should add up to one serious Android experience.
Tell us down below what has you most excited for the Nexus 5. If it’s something other than what is listed in the poll, tell us in the comments section.
The new DROID family of phones is not all that’s on sale today from Verizon, no sir. The LG G2 and HTC One have also been slashed by $50 to $149, however, you can drop another $50 off of each if you use coupon code “VZWDEAL.” Since “Verizon30″ was killed off within the last week (R.I.P.), this is now the coupon code of choice until November 3 (when it will see its life come to an end). The “VZWDEAL” code is supposed to take off $100 from phones, but since Big Red already discounted each phone by $50, they are only willing to give you another $50. (more…)
Three purported press renders of the new Nexus 5 have surfaced this morning, thanks to our friends up north at Canadian wireless provider Telus. The images were sent to Mobile Syrup, giving us one of the cleanest looks at the new Google Experience launcher headed for Android 4.4 “Kit Kat.” We also get another look at the phone’s design, though nothing there is necessarily new.

First announced prior to IFA at the end of August, the LG G Pad 8.3 has now arrived on our shores and in Best Buy’s online store for $349.99. The G Pad 8.3 is LG’s first tablet in some time, but appears to be a solid entry. With an 8.3″ full HD IPS display (1920×1200, 273ppi) and Snapdragon 600 processor, it’s as powerful as almost any other tablet on the planet, but is still small enough to be a mobile companion, much like a Nexus 7. It’s also similar in build and design to the LG G2, which we can’t say enough good things about (our review). (more…)
After seeing a Nexus 5 prototype leak in a 7-minute hands-on video over the weekend, we were hoping something a little more official or retail-ready would make a new appearance to rid everyone’s vision of an unfinished product. Images of a much more official looking Nexus 5 surfaced this morning, rear “Nexus” logo included. The photos were attached to Google+ user Anton Kuznetsov who simply said “From Russia with Love” along with the share. (more…)
It is somewhat of a joke that we love to toss around here that LG copies pretty much everything that Samsung does or attempt to beat them to the punch. When news like the latest leak from LG appear however, it is really not a joke anymore. If you will remember, the night before Samsung announced the Galaxy Round, LG put out a press release that amounted to “we have curved displays coming soon too!” Now we have leaked renders of a device named the LG G Flex that shows what they meant.
