LG one-ups Samsung with Optimus G ad in Times Square

In an effort to promote their upcoming Galaxy S IV handset, Samsung has plastered Times Square in New York City with billboards and advertisements promoting the new device. However, LG has stepped in to rain on their parade with its own ad that mocks Samsung and the "4" theme. The ad, which is placed right above Samsung's billboard, promotes the company's new Optimus G.

LG Wireless Ultra HD Transmission hands-on: quick as a whip!

LG Wireless Ultra HD Transmission hands-on: quick as a whip!

This week we've had the opportunity to take a peek at - and play with - LG's brand new Wireless Ultra HD Transmission technology - the world's first! Of course such claims are a always a bit subjective, but from what we've experienced here, they're not kidding around with this technology being mightily impressive. The demonstration came from Mobile World Congress 2013 where LG had an LG Optimus G connected (wirelessly) to a rather high definition LG television, playing a fabulous first-person game to show the instantaneousness of the transfer of information.

LG Optimus G Pro+ spotted with extra massive display

LG Optimus G Pro+ spotted with extra massive display

The LG Optimus G was ushered in with a bang last year, bringing on the first look we'd had at the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor - and here in 2013 it's looking like the face of the device is about to get a whole lot larger. With the original Optimus G having a very likely large amount of sales cannibalized by the Google Nexus 4, it's no wonder that LG is likely thinking about bringing not one, but two new models to the market here in the first half of the year. The first reveal was the LG Optimus G Pro with a lovely 5-inch display - now it's time to get even larger.

Predictions for Google’s Android in 2013: Freedom for All!

Predictions for Google’s Android in 2013: Freedom for All!

At the start of 2012 the folks at Google were seeing their beloved Android mobile operating system being used on more iPhone clones than we'd care to discuss - near the turn-over to 2013, big manufacturers like Samsung and HTC have made their own hero lines the likes of which Android has never known. What we saw in 2012 was recognition of the model that has worked for Apple extremely well since all the way back in 2007 - a focus on the ecosystem rather than on the individual specifications of any one device. This will continue in a very big way through 2013 with manufacturers holding up a single torch - like the Motorola RAZR brand - to keep themselves lit up brightly.

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science! First be sure to take a peek at our original full Nexus 4 review as done by our own Vincent Nguyen, then have another dive in with the slight differences between it and the T-Mobile edition - must be something for the massive difference in price, right?

LG: LTE in the Nexus 4 is an evolutionary leftover

LG: LTE in the Nexus 4 is an evolutionary leftover

The LTE modem discovered in the Nexus 4 is an evolutionary leftover akin to an appendix or tailbone, LG has explained, dashing any hopes of a firmware update unlocking future 4G capabilities. Interest was raised when teardowns of the latest Nexus smartphone revealed it had an LTE-capable modem, despite being billed as 3G only; as LG told TechRadar, however, that's just the vestigial remnants of the more advanced - and more expensive - device the Nexus 4 was based upon.
