AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?

Welcome back to Monday everyone - we've got a heaping helping of news to recap, so let's dive right in.

Chief system architect leaves Samsung for Apple

Chief system architect leaves Samsung for Apple

Samsung and Apple have a strange sort of symbiotic relationship. On one hand, Apple uses Samsung for a large number of the components it needs for its devices, and Samsung receives considerable business from Apple. Despite this, the two companies have also been caught up in a series of patent wars, with lawsuits being slung back and forth. Recently, Apple began shifting its orders around to multiple suppliers, reducing its dependence on Samsung, although it states that this was due to risk management.

Welcome to Thursday evening, folks - just one more work day and the glorious weekend is here once again.

Galaxy Nexus ban lifted in Samsung vs Apple case

If you thought the Apple vs Samsung court battles were over, you were wrong - evidenced once again today by another big ruling: an overturning of a preliminary sales ban on Samsung's Galaxy Nexus. Of particular importance is this overturned ban from sales of the Galaxy Nexus because of its status with Google as one of their hero Nexus family phones, working with a "Vanilla" version of their Android software, not modified by the manufacturer, that is to say. Here the Apple vs Samsung court cases rage on beyond the one that appeared to be over for just a moment earlier this Summer.

Welcome to Wednesday evening, everyone. Today, T-Mobile and MetroPCS announced that their rumored merger was indeed real, and not long after, T-Mobile CEO John Legere released a new video explaining the deal. We heard more about the iPad Mini today, with the Wall Street Journal claiming that it's already in production and comes with a 7.85-inch screen, while accessory maker Cygnett released cases for the iPad Mini a little bit early. Speaking of iPad, we found out today that Apple ships a whopping 188,000 iPads per day, which is just plain absurd.
