The Optimus Vu 2 was first mentioned in August, but at the time LG was completely mum on the second gen phablet’s spec sheet and availability details. However, someone seems to have spilled the beans big-time, because Android Greed has a trio of very legit-looking images showing off the Optimus Vu 2’s new design and listing most of its features.
The Sony Xperia T is expected to land in stores in select European markets in the coming days. So it’s really about time that we finally see the unboxing video of the 007 phone. Also, special James Bond wallpapers and ringtones can now be downloaded.
Being a simple competitor seems to not be enough for Pantech anymore, who is looking to push for the leadership position in the Korean smartphone market with a new quad-core beast. The Vega R3 is the name of this new “monster”, one who has already been proclaimed as the “best existing quad-core smartphone” by its makers.
It’s not that often you come across a dual-SIM Android phone in the U.S. that has spacious display and good specs. The special edition Galaxy Note 2, which comes with dual-SIM support, is a great if somewhat expensive option, but its global release hasn’t been confirmed yet. For something less extravagant that doesn’t necessarily scream budget, there’s always the BLU Vivo 4.3.
Now that the iPhone 5 has been officially launched in several markets, we’re able to compare it with the hottest Android handsets in town. In fact we have already pitted it against the Samsung Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Nexus, the HTC One X and the LG Optimus 4X HD. In case you’re also interested in durability tests, you’ll also have to see our iPhone 5 vs Galaxy S3 drop test performed right on iPhone 5 launch day.
Samsung is launching a pink version of the Galaxy S3 in Korea next week. This is certainly a promotion to boost their female user base. Will Samsung’s addition make them more attractive to females?
So you walk into an electronic store looking for a new smartphone. Sitting on top of the nearly empty shelf is the Apple iPhone 5, while a stack of boxes with LG Optimus 4X HD inside sits just across it. What do you do? What DO you DO? Should you go with what millions are currently trying to get their hands on or get the underdog in the Android world?
Apple Maps vs Google Maps: #iLost Motorola (Google) ad pokes fun at the iPhone 5 and the iOS 6 Maps issues
It’s not just Samsung and Nokia that have ads taking hits at Apple’s recent products, as Motorola has joined the fun. While all of them have targeted the iPhone 5 with their ad campaigns, Motorola is particularly interested in making fun of one of the underperforming apps in iOS 6, Apple Maps.
Motorola has just shined some light on its future upgrade plans. The DROID Bionic remains the center of attention as its upgrade gets pushed back along with some other popular phones. While an update is always welcomed, there is still some disappointing news regarding Motorola’s latest schedule
Apple’s latest iPhone 5 is already available in its initial markets, and in the words of my colleague Darcy LaCouvee, it truly is an engineering marvel. And that’s coming from a die-hard Android fan. After all, the iPhone 5 won against the Samsung Galaxy S3 in our drop tests. But not everyone is going to drop their phone from ear-level on a cobbled Hong Kong pavemenet. Let’s see how well the iPhone 5 stacks up against another flagship smartphone — this time, the Samsing Galaxy Note. While we’re sure this won’t exactly be an apples-to-apples comparison, we will look at the benefits and disadvantages of each device.
