LG G2 camera hands-on: OIS, back-facing shutter, 13MP up close

One of the key ingredients for success for LG with the LG G2's release this Autumn is in its backside - and not just because it's working with all of its physical buttons on its rear. Instead it's because LG has made a big effort to show off its current-generation camera technology, complete with optical image stabilization, a back-facing shutter button (that's the down-volume button, mind you), and a 13MP sensor. While we've already sent out a full LG G2 review as such, today we're having another peek at the camera on its own.

Galaxy Note 3 not the only one free of “benchmark shenanigans” accusations [UPDATE]

Galaxy Note 3 not the only one free of “benchmark shenanigans” accusations [UPDATE]

As the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 appears on US-shores we've seen talk of not quite on-the-level benchmark boosting by the likes of what, at first, would seem to be the manufacturer of the smartphone. This report originates with Ars Technica where they suggest that the smoking gun is the fact that this smartphone brings up four full-powered CPU cores whenever it's asked to open any one of several big-name benchmarking apps. What we've found is that this situation is not - by any means - limited to Samsung's hardware.

Nexus 5 hardware photographed: launch imminent

Nexus 5 hardware photographed: launch imminent

In terms of clues leading up to the launch of a product, it would seem that an overly abundant amount of photos, specifications, and business moves by Google have lead the way to the Nexus 5 this past month. What we're seeing today, here on the first of October, is a single photo that lends itself extremely convincingly towards the idea that an LG-made Nexus 5 release is right around the corner. Is this not the same device we've seen in FCC listings and KitKat teasers several times over?

LG G2 Review

LG G2 Review

LG's "G" brand continues to represent the cutting edge in top-tier smartphone hardware. LG cut the mold for the Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor last year with the LG Optimus G, brought one of the first Snapdragon 600 quad-core processors to the market with the LG Optimus G Pro, and again aim to be the first with the newest in new Qualcomm processor technology (in the USA) here at the tail end of the summer in 2013. That processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 and this smartphone is the LG G2.

LG Nexus 5 appears as Verizon LG G2 variant at FCC

LG Nexus 5 appears as Verizon LG G2 variant at FCC

There should be little doubt that Google is planning on continuing their Nexus smartphone program well into the future - that much is clear. What's not as clear is their release schedule and manufacturer choices - the pattern we've expected to find appearing several years ago with a new OEM for each device being doused again and again. This week we're seeing further confirmation - thanks to the FCC - that Google may be working with LG once again for their Nexus smartphone line in the Nexus 5 rather than switching over after the Nexus 4 (also made by LG).

LG Nexus 5 specifications take shape with renders aplenty

LG Nexus 5 specifications take shape with renders aplenty

It's not often that a device is so highly anticipated that more than one person creates a freestyle rendering of it before its even confirmed to exist - but that's just what's happened this week with the LG-made Nexus 5. This device has been tipped to be taking on the specifications of the LG G2 for the most part, and has appeared quite possibly on purpose, but supposedly on accident - inside a teaser video for Android 4.4 KitKat. Now the user-made models can pour in.
