    Mobile World Congress 2013 is teasing us a range of ultra-desirable 1080p phones such as LG’s Optimus Pro G. LG previously released the well-received Optimus G and now because it’s 2013 and every bloody phone has to be 1080p, we get the Optimus Pro G. Another huge phablet joins the party Impressive hardware Let’s begin with the pixels per inch which is an astounding 440 ppi. The battery is an impressive 3000mAh which could lend to the 10mm thickness of the LG Optimus Pro G. Cracking open the shell reveals a 1.7Ghz quad-core cpu which again, seems to be the new...

  • LG to roll out super high-def mobile displays [CES]

    LG Display is the world's largest LCD panel maker, producing not just televisions but also displays for various mobile manufacturers like Apple. At CES 2013 it showed some of the new displays in its line, with a 12.9-inch display that holds a resolution of 2560 x 1700, a 7-inch crammed with 1920 x 1200 pixels, and a 5.5-inch model with full HD that delivers at 1920 x 1080 resolution.

  • LG BX327 projector review: the TV killer

    Plug your Xbox 360 or PC into a projector and you’re treated to a spectacle no television can rival. As the projector roars to life, funneling hot air through its innumerable vents, your lounge wall is transformed into a visual playground, home to a picture both bigger and more mesmerising than you could ever have imagined. For sheer size and spectacle, no television can contend against a machine that projects an image upwards of 200 inches. But projectors have never been the obvious choice for gadget lovers and gaming aficionados. Traditionally they have been expensive luxuries, saddled with a finite...

  • LG and Samsung team up to create gaming TVs

    LG and Samsung have announced new smart TVs that integrate gaming into the sets, making consoles such as the Xbox and PS3 an optional extra. LG seems to be leading this gaming TV idea with the "Smart TV with Google TV" giving you access to the streaming game service OnLive. OnLive, an on-demand cloud gaming service, has more than 200 games with FIA World Rally Championship, Sleeping Dogs and Assassin's Creed Revelations being...

  • Google Nexus 4 review: impressive specs, impressive price

    The Google Nexus 4 is the latest in the line of smartphones to carry the search giant's brand, taking over the mantle from the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Manufactured by LG, the Nexus 4 offers up an attractive design coupled with some powerful specifications, helping it to stake a claim in the busy mobile market. From the front there's little difference between the Google Nexus 4 and the Galaxy Nexus, the featureless black gloss only has the ear piece grill and front facing camera interrupting its flow, and the handset is lined with a slender metallic border. Weighing in at 139g the LG Nexus...

  • Nexus 4 specs leaked, runs Android 4.2 Jellybean?

    Engadget are reporting that British phone retailer, Carphone Warehouse, has released details on LG's latest smartphone, the Nexus 4. With the device rumored to make to make its debut at Google's Android event on 29 October, we were a little weary about phone retailer's claim. On further inspection however, the website looks pretty legit. The fact that this retailer has prematurely disclosed images of the Nexus 4 is no real news, with The Verge having already posted leaked images of the device a couple of weeks ago. What is interesting though, is the specifications listed for the device....

  • LG Optimus G primed for 19 October launch

    LG's not a well-known mobile brand outside of Japan, China and Korea, but it's nonetheless pumping out exceptional smartphones such as the Optimus G, which drops 19 October in Japan. It's got a quad-core 1.5GHz CPU, with a 4.7-inch screen, a mind-boggling 13MP camera which is no PureView but will do, Android 4.0, DMB tuning and FeLiCa wallet which is just a fancy name for NFC. This little beauty comes out in both black and red. Japan's native telecom, NTT DoCoMo will be the first company to carry the Optimus G. Actually a very attractive phone Is this the phone to beat...

  • Blame this: all-in-one screens are the reason you don’t own an iPhone 5 yet

    The iPhone 5 has been sold over five-million times. By September 2013, Apple's iPhone 5 is expected to sell in the region of 170.7-million devices. It's no surprise then that the current shortage is driven not by desire, but by inherent hardware challenges. The iPhone 5's all-in-one screen, developed by LG, is so painstaking to make that it has caused delivery bottlenecks. Apple is of course trying its best to remedy this heinous travesty of justice. The eye of the storm Apple knows that it can't rely on LG alone to meet the demands of an iPhone-hungry public. That's why...

  • LG Optimus G’s 13MP camera, quad core CPU kicks in doors, takes names

    LG's Optimus G is here. Not as if we were waiting with baited breath for this little tramp, but it's here none the less. This very un-iPhone looking phone, more like a redone Galaxy Note, has a 4.7-inch screen, 1.5Ghz quad-core Snapdragon CPU, 2GB RAM, 32GB internal memory and a 2 100mAh battery. That's just for starters. Multi-tasking, no more LG's calling it cross-talking, and it allows complex tasks to be "completed simultaneously without...

  • LG quad-core smartphone may come with in-cell touch display

    LG has started mass-producing in-cell touch displays prompting the question as to whether consumers will find the technology in LG's new quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro smartphone. It has been rumoured that the next iPhone will get in-cell touch technology, but with LG actually producing the displays, it should be obvious that its new smartphone would get in-cell touch too. With a release date sometime this fall, the new LG smartphone will have some pretty heavy specifications. It will certainly need to in order to stay on the radar in the high-end smartphone market. The details are still in rumor form,...
