LG just fixed a bug that left 10 million G3 smartphones vulnerable


lg g3 aa (2 of 22)

Last Thursday, Cynet revealed that their researchers, in collaboration with BugSec, had discovered a pretty serious vulnerability affecting LG G3 smartphones. They let LG know about the issue prior to publicizing it, and the company reacted quickly. A patch is now available that closes the data-theft hole, and LG is encouraging all G3 owners to update their devices as soon as possible.

The bug resides in a particular app called Smart Notice that comes pre-installed on LG G3 smartphones. The notification platform serves to ferry a variety of relevant information to users, but what it failed to do was vet data before presenting it. Researchers discovered it was possible to manipulate data in such a way that malicious code could be executed remotely.

“The vulnerability can easily lead to authentic phishing attacks and to a full denial of service (DOS) on the device,” wrote Cynet. Since the app is pre-installed, the number of affected devices is estimated to be a staggering 10 million worldwide.

For those interested, Ars Technica has composed a more comprehensive write-up detailing the workings of this exploit and the two ways researchers were able to compromise devices through the bug. In the meantime, if you’ve got an G3 or know someone who does, better get that thing updated pronto.

What are your thoughts regarding this vulnerability and the way LG handled it? After the (false?) scare with the Linux bug earlier this month, it’s always good to hear about patches that make our devices and sensitive information safer and more secure. As always, let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!

Keep your phone off the charger with a Zerolemon battery: review


One of the biggest problems in our modern age is how to keep your power hungry phone’s battery charged. Zerolemon looks to remedy this problem with their line of extended batteries. I’ll be specifically looking at the extended battery that they offer for the LG G3. However, they offer similar products for many Samsung, LG, and even iPhone models.

Zerolemon extended battery overview

Zerolemon makes two types of battery and cases. The first type, which I’ll be reviewing on the LG G3, replaces the phone’s internal battery and back door. This type of extended battery is used with a shock absorbent case, which consists of a plastic shell wrapped in a soft rubber case.

Zerolemon

The second type of case will be very familiar to iPhone users who have purchased extended battery cases in the past. This type of case has the battery built into the case and works by plugging into the phone’s power port. This is not efficient as the first type of case but is a great solution for people that do not have a removable battery, such as iPhone and current gen Samsung owners.

Zerolemon extended battery setup

The Zerolemon extended battery is fairly simple to install. However, on the LG G3, it can be a little tricky as the battery terminals are slightly recessed and the external battery can and will bend the phones charging pins if installed incorrectly.

This actually happened to me and I had to take a small screwdriver and carefully bend the charging pins back out. In order to properly install the battery, you’ll need to first disassemble the case, which will come fully assembled from the factory. Unfortunately, there were no instructions included so, I had to experiment a little. I found that the easiest way was to pull on the tab that covers the charging port and then separate the rubber from the hard plastic shell.

From there is was a cinch. The hard plastic case comes apart fairly easily and then snaps into place around the phone. From there, just drop the battery in. You’ll need to make sure and drop it straight down or you risk bending those pesky charging pins. This is probably the trickiest part of the entire setup process.

After you drop the battery in, you’ll want to turn on your device to make sure that you have a proper connection. Once you’ve verified that the phone turns on, you’ll need to wrap the rubber portion of the case around the hard plastic shell.

The final step is to charge the battery fully. If you have a phone that supports fast charging, then this process will take a few hours. If not, then this can take all night.

Zerolemon extended battery usage

Battery life: The battery for the LG G3 comes in at 8,500 mAh and under moderate usage I found that the battery would last me approximately two days. Under heavy usage with the screen at full brightness, I could make it through the day and night before I would need to charge the battery again in the morning.

The battery took several cycles before I could squeeze 2 full days out it. At first, it seemed like I could only make it through the day and would end up around 30% – 35% battery life remaining at the end of the day. I was ecstatic to get even that compared to the stock battery that seemed to live on the charger.

Case and holster: Testing the case is always a tricky thing as I don’t think that anyone wants to intentionally drop their phone to test a case. In my case, there were several unintentional drops and the case not only protected the phone, but there were no visible marks on the case afterwards. It felt a little hefty, but it was easier to hold than the phone without a case, so I don’t mind that so much.

The holster is amazing and it really shows how well thought out the Zerolemon products are. First of all the phone fits into the holster in any direction. Screen facing out or screen facing in and it’s omnidirectional.

Secondly, the holster doubles as a stand for your phone. The phone can be placed in the holster with the screen facing out and the belt clip can be secured in the open position.

The belt clip can also rotate 360°. Not only does this help position the angle of the screen while using it as a stand, but it helps to adjust the holster from a horizontal to a vertical position when clipped to your belt.

4.5 out of 5 stars

Zerolemon

In short, I love this case. Yes, it makes the phone a little heavier and bulkier, but not having to leave it on the charger all day more than makes up for the added heft.

While this case certainly is bulky, it’s not much more than you would expect on a heavy duty Otterbox case and it comes with the added benefit of extra battery life.

If I was to nitpick a little, then the only downside to using this battery is that you loose the NFC capabilities that are built into the factory battery door, but there is a workaround that I will cover in another article which will not only give you back the NFC capabilities but will also add wireless charging.

The Zerolemon extended battery for the LG G3 currently sells for $75.99 on Amazon, but extended battery cases for other devices can be found as low as $29.99.

What do you think? Could you use an extended battery? Let us know in the comments.

LG G3 and Sprint G Stylo begin receiving Android 6.0 Marshmallow


lg g3 aa (3 of 22)

There was plenty of speculation that LG was on the verge of releasing a Marshmallow update for its last generation LG G3 flagship when the source code appeared a couple of weeks ago and the update is now officially here. As an added bonus, US carrier Sprint is also rolling out Marshmallow for its LG G Stylo.

The company’s Poland executive, Jaroslaw Bukowski, said in a tweet that Android 6.0 Marshmallow is rolling out for the LG G3 in Poland as we speak. Oddly though, the message has since been deleted, so LG is probably once again testing its Marshmallow launch in Poland before it rolls out to the rest of the world. This could take a bit of time. LG did the same thing with its Lollipop update path and Marshmallow for the LG G4.

As this update is rolling out in Europe, we’re going to assume this is for the D855 model only for now. Other variants will have to wait for a regional version of the update to arrive.

Android 6 for LG G3 tweet

LG isn’t just updating its flagship devices to Marshmallow though, the G Stylo is also receiving the same Android 6.0 upgrade. Today Sprint has started pushing out its latest update to the handset. Unfortunately, there has been no word on when T-Mobile will update its version of the smartphone.


Android 6.0 marshmallow logo DSC_0126See also: Android 6.0 Marshmallow updates roundup – December 18, 201589

The update brings the version number to LS770ZV7 and it contains all the familiar Marshmallow tweaks to the OS, such as Doze and Google Now on Tap. Sprint says that the update should appear sometime over the next few days, so keep an eye out for that OTA notification or head on over to settings to force a manual check.

LG G3 Marshmallow source code appears, update may be coming soon


LG G3 Vs HTC One M8-88

Rejoice LG G3 owners, as there are strong signs that an Android 6.0 Marshmallow update could soon be upon us. LG has just released the open source Marshmallow code for its last generation flagship (the D855 model at least) and appears to be in the testing phase.

LG still hasn’t officially announced exactly when the LG G3 will be receiving an update to Marshmallow, although it had suggested a mid-December time frame earlier in the year. The release of this 1GB source file suggests that an OTA update could be arriving any time now, perhaps even in the next few days. However, OTA updates are usually staggered, so not every country will receive them at the same time and it could take weeks before the update hits a wide range of regions. Carriers, as usual, will be substantially slower with their own updates.

LG also recently began pushing out its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for this year’s LG G4 flagship, which came in a slightly larger 1.55GB package.

Unfortunately, other LG G3 models, such as the D855K or P, will probably have to wait a little longer, as it’s just the international D855 model showing Marshmallow code for now. Keep an eye out for that update notification in the next few days and let us know when yours comes through.

Cyber Monday: FreedomPop loses mind, sells LG G2 for $80.99, G3 for $224.99 today only


lg g3 vs lg g2 (7 of 15)

The folks at FreedomPop have gone completely bonkers and are selling US residents some very nice pre-owned LG devices for ludicrous prices. But you have to act today if you want to get your hands on one!

The LG G2 is currently going for $80.99, and it’s no slouch of a device. With a retail value of $499.99, you’re getting about 84% off on a device that rocked the market when it premiered in 2013. Upon release, the LG G2’s 5.2 inch screen was competitive with the Galaxy S4. With an elegant, minimalist design and enough hardware under the hood to stay current with today’s apps, this smartphone really is hard to beat. 2GB of RAM and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor are still pretty nice specs, and compared to what else you can buy for this price range… there’s just no comparison.

The deal on the LG G3 isn’t quite as extravagant, but it’s still going off the rails on the crazy train. The model FreedomPop is selling is the Gold edition, which usually retails for $599.99. If you act today, you can get it for $224.99, a massive slice off the regular price tag. In the summer of 2014, we called the LG G3 the best phone LG had ever made. It sports a gorgeous 5.5-inch display, an impressive battery life, and hardware specs updated from the G2 model.

Android Marshmallow for the LG G3 to become available next month



http://pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push();

LG recently rolled out its Android Marshmallow update to its flagship smartphone, the LG G4, so it stands to reason that the next in line to get the update would be its flagship of yesteryear, the LG G3. According to new reports, Android Marshmallow for the LG G3 is already in testing and is planned for roll-out in Poland between December 16th and 18th, with a wider roll-out if that is successful. This much was confirmed by LG Poland executive Jaroslaw Bukowski who tweeted the plans out.

LG did run into some “technical issues” when it rolled out its update to the LG G4 and it’s not clear if that’s been completely addressed yet, let alone for the LG G3. All we can do is hope that LG has gotten it right this time – we’ll have more news when the update starts hitting devices next month.

Deal: get an LG G3 and a whole year of service for only $289.99


lg g3 aa (4 of 22)

Looking for a good phone? We know how limiting budgets can be, but in this day and age you can get some pretty awesome smartphones for a low price. You could get a mid-end handset or an older generation high-end device. Today the AA Deals Store is offering the latter at a very good price.

You can now grab an LG G3 for only $289.99. That may not sound like that great of a deal at first, as you can actually get the same phone for slightly cheaper on Amazon, but you are not getting just a phone here. This deal comes with a year of unlimited text & talk, as well as 500 MB per month from FreedomPop. In addition you get premier service, which includes premium voice, voicemail, data rollover, tethering, usage alerts, internet security, VPN and more.

LG G3 Vs HTC One M8-47

It’s going to save you a bunch of cash! This happens to be a 72% discount over the original value, so you are definitely in for a treat here. There is one thing to keep in mind, though. Coverage is not everywhere, especially if you want 4G LTE. Your best bet is to check out FreedomPop’s website to see if you are covered (they use Sprint’s network). You can also learn all about FreedomPop in there. It’s actually a very interesting wireless service provider, and some casual users could even handle using it for free after that year.

If you are sold on the service, you should also read the great review we gave the LG G3. It’s actually a hell of a phone, even if it’s a previous generation handset. Specs include a 5.5-inch 2560x1440p display, a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2 GB of RAM (or 3 GB for the 32 GB version), 16/32 GB of internal storage, a 13 MP rear camera and a 2.1 MP front shooter, as well as a 3000 mAh battery.

Want in? A year of free service is always good, so I say you should jump on this deal if your area is covered by FreedomPop. Just hit the link below to sign up!

[Deal] Get one year of free service and the LG G3 for only $289


When it comes to picking a device on a new phone plan, the choices can be tough. Monetary issues arise often, and can greatly influence your decision more than anything else. However, there are deals that crop up out of the blue that make you just want to jump at the chance. Today’s deal is one of those.

The fine folks over at FreedomPop have a deal that you may not be able to pass up on, no matter how much you try to talk yourself out of it. Today’s deal is for the LG G3 and ONE YEAR of FREE service from FreedomPop. You’ll get one of LG’s greatest phones with the G3, and one that is still very capable even though it has been surpassed by two iterations, the LG G4, and the LG V10.

Additionally, you’ll get a year of unlimited talk and text, along with 500MB of 4G/3G LTE data from FreedomPop. Now, that’s not a whole lot of data, however, if you’re connected to Wi-Fi all the time, that should be enough to perform daily tasks without any hiccups.
