  • Party like it’s the early 2000s — flip phones poised to make comeback in 2017

     

    Yahoo! News (Online) featured an article speculating that LG could follow Samsung and release a foldable phone in 2017. The article describes a potential design that would have the phone flip vertically to offer users a landscape view with a touch screen located on both the front and back of the phone.

    It states, “In fact, a separate LG patent shows just such a design — another proposal for a foldable phone shows the flip happening on the vertical edge, which means that when it’s unfolded, you’re greeted with what looks like a tablet in landscape mode. The device would have a touchscreen on both the front and the back, while the hinge could serve as a music controller or notification bar. And of course, there would be a camera, flash, and fingerprint scanner.”

  • Consumer Reports Ranks LG G4 Higher Than The Competition

    lg-g4-industrial-design-16

    The LG G4 is a powerful handset, what with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 5.5-inch QHD display, and a 16MP camera with Optical Image Stabilization. It also sports a rather sleek design with a leather back that gives off a rather classy vibe, which is why we can’t say we’re too surprised to learn that Consumer Reports has ranked the phone pretty high.

    The handset managed to score 78 out of 100 in terms of performance, and interestingly enough despite the fact that LG isn’t as mainstream a brand compared to Apple and Samsung, it managed to beat out both the flagships of Apple and Samsung, with theiPhone 6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 ranked fifth together.

    Now some might debate the rankings of Consumer Reports and we suppose that is your prerogative, but it’s good to see LG starting to gain more recognition throughout the years. The company has largely been looked at as a Samsung competitor who typically falls short, but in the past year or so, LG has really stepped up their game, what with handsets like the LG G3, LG G4, and let’s not forget the Nexus 5.

    LG is also rumored to be working on one of the two Nexus phones this year and it remains to be seen how well-received that particular phone will be. In the meantime do you agree with the ranks? Is the LG G4 deserving of being ranked higher than the iPhone 6 andGalaxy S6?
