The latest version of the Ice Cream Sandwich 4.0 may have come out with the latest Samsung Galaxy Nexus phone, but it’s possible to get it for your LG Optimus 3D P920 through rooting your phone. A word of warning however: rooting your device voids the warranty and the only way to restore the warranty is by installing the original stock firmware.
Before proceeding to root the LG Optimus 3D phone, there are a few things that need to be done:Before You Start Ensure that the phone is left with a charge of at least 70% so that it doesn’t get turned off during the rooting process. Back up all the data on your phone so that it can be restored safely if any [...]
Go through the lists of hardware specifications of the various popular dual-core Android devices, and you’ll likely notice two processors frequently come up. These would be nVidia’s Tegra 2 and Texas Instrument’s OMAP 4. And while the former was a little more favored by the earlier models such as the Motorola Atrix, lately it seems that the 4th generation of TI’s OMAP (Open Multimedia Application Platform) is gaining ground with the mobile device manufacturers. A good example here would be the Droid Bionic, a smart phone initially reported to be powered by a Tegra 2 processor but eventually reached store shelves with an OMAP 4 under the hood.
The two system-on-chips [...]
After the big announcement made In Hong Kong, the Galaxy Nexus and Android 4.0 were officially announced. We were all left wondering if our beloved Android phone would be getting the update to Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich. Well, we have put together a nice list of our predictions of what devices will, what devices might, and what device will not be getting official ICS updates.
With contracts, and over $500-off-contract prices for new phones like the Galaxy Nexus, which is coming next month, we’d like to keep our current phone around as long as possible – right?Phones that will get ICS
All of these phones, I think will be getting [...]
Well it’s about time! According to Skype’s official changelog, their Android app will be adding video chat functionality to over 14 new devices. The update isn”t without its growing pains though, as it looks like Skype is planning to further monetize their burgeoning free service by way of a few ads here and there.
Either way, as one of the world’s most popular video/messaging/free calling services, it’s good to see, and more importantly, it’s good for everyone and especially the new near 600,000 Android device owners being added daily.
I read somewhere a few weeks back that at any given moment, Skype is responsible for as [...]
LG is no longer a foreign name among Android lovers. They have set their footprints in the heart of consumers — or have they?
The First Dual-Core Phones, Half The Excitement
The LG Optimus 2X was one of the first dual-core phone to hit the market, back in early 2011. I remember it well, as I switched from the Samsung Captivate to it. It was nice to handle and browsed impressively fast, but not without its own share of growing pains.
Initially, I was more impressed by the dual-core, dual-channel memory LG Optimus 3D, but that was delayed at that point of time, so I decided to settle with the Optimus 2X. It was generally a good device and very easy to [...]
LG has the Optimus 3D and HTC has the EVO 3D–both smartphones featuring glasses-free 3D display and 3D image capture. Add to that Sharp’s recently announced glasses-free 3D smartphone, the Sharp Aquos Phone SH8298U.

The Sharp Aquos Phone SH8298U has a 4.2-inch glasses-free 3D display with qHD (960×540) resolution. The glasses-free 3D display enables the user to view 3D content without using specialized eyewear.
A single-core, 1.4-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8255 processor powers Android 2.3 Gingerbread, along with 2 gigabytes of internal storage and [...]
LG is planning to bring out in 2012 an updated and slimmer version of the LG Optimus 3D, one of the developers of the 3D handset told Pocket-lint early this week.
Henry Noh, who was on the development team for the LG Optimus 3D, explained that the current build of LG Optimus 3D isn’t the “ slimmest and sexiest phone on the street” and that they want to make it slimmer.
LG’s main reason for enhancing this 3D-capable phone—aside from providing improved specs—is to keep in line with competitors for a slimmer phone chassis next year. Thus, LG intends to produce slimmer and sexier–if possible, the thinnest–phones that the company hopes to launch next [...]
