We’ve got just over a week before LG officially announces the LG G4, but the question is already being asked: Will the LG G4 sell as well as the LG G3? According to Korean analyst, IBK Investment & Securities, the answer is “No”. This answer is largely driven by the resurgent success of the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge who says will create market conditions which “will not be favorable” for the LG G4, who LG is hoping will sell the same number of handsets as the LG G3, estimated to be around 10 million.

Another source has said that the recent rumours that the LG G4 will be powered be a Snapdragon 808 instead of a Snapdragon 810 will be an issue if true as it is losing “a selling point for LG”. And as you can imagine, anything that LG can claw back from the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge is going to be an important differentiator come April 28th, but we’ll have to see if LG has anything else hidden up their sleeves.

There are a spate of flagship devices that are due for launch in the month of April, but none more anticipated than LG‘s latest, the LG G4. Continuing its steady stream of teaser trailers of the device’s features, a video detailing the Quad HD display for the LG G4 has been released today. None of it is particularly surprising seeing as LG announced the new display a few weeks ago, but it’s nice to finally put a name to the display. Chief among the displays improved abilities is a 25% increase in brightness and 20% increase in colour range when compared with the LG G3‘s Quad HD display, which was no slouch itself.

LG looks like it’s going to build on the solid success of the LG G3 with the LG G4 and has changed a few things up, as shown in a recent leak, in particular the fact that the LG G4 will be available in several forms of leather. We’re not expecting anything groundbreaking from the hardware of the device – at least not compared to the other flagships – which should make the LG G4 a strong performer in 2015.

The Verizon Wireless version of the LG G3 finally is receiving an update to Android Lollipop, according to a press release on its site.

In an attached PDF, Verizon has documented the features of the update. These include: material design, an improved runtime, lock screen notifications, the ability to hide sensitive notifications, smart lock, searchable settings, floating action buttons, and screen pinning.

With lock screen notifications, notifications can appear on the lock screen based on user settings. This allows up to two notifications to be displayed. A numeric indicator pops up for any additional ones. Also, notifications can be swiped to display the next one without needing to unlock the phone. The user can even set all or some of the, to be hidden. When “Show all notifications” is chosen, pressing the indicator or swiping the list downward will it.

Smart Lock provides two ways to unlock the G3. The first is through face recognition, and the second is through a simple swipe in place of a security lock when the device is connected to a “Trusted” Bluetooth device added via Smart Lock settings.

The floating action buttons setting adds buttons to some of the main apps (Clock, Contacts, Email, Messaging, and Music) that involve adding new items.

One of the last features is screen pinning, found on the Recent apps screen. This locks the G3 to just a single app, preventing the launching of others until it is unpinned through touching and holding the back and recent buttons at the same time. Only the back button will work until the app is unpinned.

Oops: LG may have revealed the LG G4 and its leather back cover a little earlier than expected

Good old @evleaks. Despite being retired, leaker @evleaks, or Evan Blass as he goes by IRL, has managed to uncover a website that appears to detail the yet-to-be-announced LG G4. This is our first look at the finished product, and our first look at the new leather back that LG had teased in its last trailer. Unlike the faux-leather backs of the Samsung devices of old, it looks like the LG G4’s leather will be genuine leather, though hopefully this won’t impact the device’s pricing.

LG G4The LG G4 appears to be taking a few pages out of the Motorola Moto X’s book as LG will be offering the LG G4 in a variety of colours of leather, as well as what looks like the standard plastic ‘metallic’ finishes that were available on the LG G3 in case leather isn’t your thing. The leather finishes possible include (see image below for exact colour):

  • Leather Brown
  • Leather Black
  • Leather Red
  • Leather Skyblue
  • Leather Beige
  • Leather Yellow


LG G4Unsurprisingly, the few pages that are LG G4 specific focus on the new camera on the device, revealed to be a f1.8 lens. In fact, it appears the website might not actually be finished as most of the information on the specifications page appears to be for the LG G3 and not the LG G4, unless we missed something and the new LG flagship is going to ship with a Snapdragon 801 and Android 4.4.2 – we’re expecting a Snapdragon 810 and Android 5.0, for the record. It’s possible that LG will take this page down when it gets wind that people know about it, but then again, the cat’s out of the bag.

HTC USA’s new ad with Robinson Cano involves smashing the iPhone 6, Galaxy S5 and the LG G3 [Video]


cano

HTC USA has marked the official arrival of the baseball season by posting a new commercial with its recently acquired star campaigner Robinson Canó who plays for the Seattle Mariners in the MLB.

While it’s completely different from the mildly crazy Robert Downey Jr ads we’ve seen recently, it’s certainly not better. The ad involves Canó taking his position with a baseball bat in his hand and literally smashing the iPhone 6, the LG G3 and the Samsung Galaxy S5 into pieces.

This is followed by the following text – “It takes focus and power to compete at the highest level. It takes precision to excel. It’s about playing the game for a bigger cause. And sometimes you just have to challenge convention. Let’s play ball.”

While we don’t mind the good natured ribbing against industry rival, it seems a little too extreme to be smashing phones to get your point across. What do you think about this new ad? Sound off below.

Lollipop update for T-Mobile’s LG G3 is now available via LG’s mobile support tool


LG_G3_Main_01_TA

If you are the owner of an LG G3 from T-Mobile you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that the Android 5.0 Lollipop update has become available for download via LG’s mobile support tool.

The Lollipop update is based on Android 5.0.1 with build number LRX21Y, and is not yet available via OTA (Over-The-Air). If you want to update your G3 you will have to connect your handset to a PC that has LG’s mobile support tool installed and follow the instructions. Besides the normal Lollipop features, the update also enables VOLTE (Voice-Over-LTE) functionality, with settings placed in the menu.

If you’ve already updated your T-Mobile LG G3 to Lollipop let us know if you’re happy with the new firmware and if there are any bugs you’ve noticed.

Lollipop OTA will begin rolling out to the T-Mobile LG G3 on April 7th


lg g3 aa (5 of 22)

The update to Android 5.0.1 Lollipop for the T-Mobile LG G3 has been available for a few days now, but if you’ve been waiting for the OTA to hit your device, you shouldn’t have to wait much longer. According to T-Mobile’s Des Smith, the Lollipop update for the T-Mobile G3 will begin making its way to devices Tuesday, April 7th.

If you didn’t hear the news a few days ago, LG G3 owners on T-Mo’s network can update to Lollipop right now, as long as they don’t mind jumping through a few hoops. The update, which will bring the device up to Android 5.0.1, can be installed by using LG’s mobile support tool website. For instructions on how to install the software, head to this page.

G3 owners will be able to experience a number of under-the-hood changes including the new ART runtime, enhanced security features and much more. Google has also added in some nice UI tweaks, including the company’s wonderful Material Design guidelines. The aesthetic changes won’t be as prominent on the G3 as they are on a phone that’s running vanilla Android, but we imagine most users will be quite satisfied with the new update.

LG G3 owners on T-Mobile, are you excited for Lollipop?

T-Mobile LG G3 owners can now update to Lollipop through the LG mobile support tool


LG G3 Vs HTC One M8-83

If you own the LG G3 on T-Mobile’s network, your Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is waiting for you as long as you’re willing to jump through a few hoops first. While T-Mobile’s software update page still reads that there is no update available for the G3, the update can be installed on your device by using the LG mobile support tool.

To download the update manually, you’ll first need to visit LG’s mobile support tool website, then click the link that reads Software Update (LG Mobile Support Tool). Once you download the new software, the tool may tell you that your software is already up to date. If so, select the options button, then choose upgrade recovery. This will install Android 5.0.1 to your G3. And don’t worry, the update process won’t erase anything from your device, though it may be a good idea to back up your information just in case. If you want to find out the best way to back up your data, our own Jonathan Feist went through a few methods in his Android Customization series.

Now that the update is available directly through LG, we can’t imagine it will be too much longer until the OTA starts rolling out to devices. With that said, if your T-Mobile LG G3 gets an OTA anytime soon, be sure to let us know!
