The Galaxy S3’s presence is currently being felt throughout the world. With the S3, Samsung has easily produced one of the hottest smartphones to ever hit the market. Destined to shine, the Galaxy S3 bears the specs that help it handily beat out nearly any phone on the market. But, despite its prowess, Samsung’s superphone is facing some top-notch competition. Competitor HTC, with their One series phones, obviously aims to steal the spotlight from the Galaxy S3. But, who would expect the not-so-prominent LG to throw a quad-core behemoth into the mix? One that gives Sammy a run for their money, at that!
Not yet slated for a U.S. release, the LG Optimus 4X HD has [...]
LG may not be the world’s best-known smartphone maker or the largest maker of smartphones in the world, like their co-nationals Samsung, but the Koreans are, nevertheless, a force to be reckoned with.
First off, the phone maker has passed through a long period of lackluster evolution, marked by mediocre products and a dwindling mindshare. But now, all signs indicate that LG is back with a vengeance. And for those in the know – LG has been making major waves in their display division, and is producing what many consider to be some of the finest displays available to date.
Over the past several months, LG has scored a number of important wins. It [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 just got another worthy rival courtesy of LG and its none other than the LG Optimus 4X HD. Announced as early as February during the Mobile World Congress, the LG Optimus 4X HD is now available in Europe. For all of our readers in Germany, you’ll be the lucky ones to first have first dibs on this smartphone. LG will then release the Tegra 3 devices in Netherlands, Sweden, United Kingdom and Italy. LG will have the units ready for you in the coming weeks before they release it in Asia, Central and South America as well as in Eastern Europe.
For those of you who’ve been eyeing the LG Optimus 4X HD since its first appearance during the [...]
The Samsung Galaxy S3 – probably the most popular Android smartphone to ever go into production – has been announced at the beginning of the month, and it’s only a few days away from its debut in several European markets.
Now, one major question arises among Android fans worldwide: are there any Android smartphones that can compete head to head with the newest member of the Samsung Galaxy S line?
Before we jump into a detailed analysis of the smartphones that can rival the S3, allow me to spoil some of the fun by providing a quick answer to that question. Yes, there are Android smartphones (either only announced or already on the market) that [...]
Judging on their Q1 2012 earnings report, LG’s business is not all that bad, as their profit in the “Mobile Communications” sector has doubled over the same quarter last year. Apparently, one of the main reasons for their increase in profit margins is the commercial success of the LG Optimus line of smartphones. But if LG plans to keep sales of the Optimus line of Android smartphones alive over the following quarters, they need not look that far to catch a glimpse of the device they will have to beat in order to remain financially successful.
In fact, their perspective [...]
While it could certainly take a cue from Samsung when talking about marketing and building up hype around a newly unveiled device, LG is looking like it could actually create an interesting advertising campaign around the Optimus 4X HD smartphone.
Unveiled way back in February at the MWC, the Optimus 4X HD disappeared from the eye of the public for a while, but popped up again a couple of days ago, when it was officially announced as hitting Europe in June.
And while June is still a long way to go, LG has launched a cool promotional video to show off the Optimus 4X HD, which should keep people talking about the handheld for some time. The clip is short, but [...]
After the unveiling of the Optimus LTE2 and the launch of the Optimus 4X HD, it’s obvious that LG is trying to make a push in the high-end smartphone market niche, where it’s currently no match for the likes of Apple, Samsung, or even HTC.
However, that was just part one of LG’s offensive, with part two coming now in the form of a newly unveiled user interface set to enrich the Android ICS experience on LG’s future phones. The LG Optimus UI 3.0 (not a very original name, I know) will come pre-installed on both the Optimus LTE2 and the 4X HD. The revamped overlay will compete for the customer’s attention with Sense 4.0 and TouchWiz Nature, the [...]
Although it’s currently not one of the key players in the high-end smartphone market niche, LG is surely making efforts to challenge the likes of Apple, Samsung, or HTC. We reported recently on the launch of the Optimus LTE2, the world’s first ever phone to come with 2 GB of RAM, while just a couple of days ago the LS970 “Eclipse” was leaked and left us speechless with a truly impressive spec sheet.
However, that’s not all for LG, as the Optimus 4X HD might be a worthy competitor for the Galaxy S3 or the HTC One X starting… in just a couple of weeks. That’s right, folks, the quad-core beast unveiled back at the MWC, finally has a release date attached to its name and [...]
“Out of sight, out of mind” is a very relevant saying in regard to consumer electronics. With the latest Android news dominated by the release of the HTC One X and the incessant leaks and rumors about the Samsung Galaxy S3, it’s easy to forget that there are other high-end smartphones out there worthy of your attention.
One such device is the LG Optimus 4X HD. LG’s contender in the race for Android smartphone supremacy was well received at MWC 2012, but the stream of news about the device has seemingly dried up since then. If you’ve, like me, forgot about this device, here is a quick refresher:Android 4.0 out of the box 4.7″ [...]
Today’s match includes two phones that were announced at the Mobile World Congress 2012 in Barcelona a few weeks ago. LG had announced the LG Optimus 4X HD, the successor to the LG Optimus 2X from last year. Meanwhile, HTC also revealed its HTC One X. Naturally, we can’t resist seeing how these potential giants measure up to each other in the ring.Design and Display
The LG Optimus 4X HD is rocking a 4.7 inch True HD IPS display with 1280×720 pixel resolution. LG is promising the “finest viewing experience with high resolution, clarity and no color or shape distortion.”
Despite the size of its display, the LG Optimus 4X HD is [...]
