LG Nexus 5 Vs LG G2: Top 5 Reasons Why Nexus 5 Camera Is Better

Even though the two most awaited mobile devices are capable of shooting high-quality videos and images powered by upgraded battery packs. We help you decide, which among the two LG smartphones you should want to grab mid-October.

The LG G2 Philosophy

The latest from LG offers an all-new design of pure gestures on the display screen and placing of buttons at the back. The G2 houses a 13MP advanced rear camera shooter with OIS technology (optical image stabilization), zapping out blurry shots & ideal for moving targets or shaky hands.

Also, this 13MP camera performs with a 8x digital zoom via its Sapphire Crystal Glass lens, its 9-multi-point autofocus allows for full HD recording with a playback at 60 frames per second.

Google’s ‘search’ stops at LG

Google has likely chosen LG as the maker of Nexus 5. It features the MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical systems; converting one form of energy to another) technology – which would be first on a smartphone. With an aperture of f/2.4 and sensor size of 1/3.2 inches, the following features give it the uniqueness it boasts of:

•             Nearly 7 times faster as compared to other predecessors

•             A handy & smaller component as compared to other mobile

•             A better power consumption – say hello to battery life!

•             A very swift auto-focus, immediately fixing onto moving elements

Battery Bites

The LG 2 has incorporated sophisticated & next-level batteries called SiO+ with 3000 mAh rating (a longer life), lasting longer compared to the lithium-io which is good enough for the GRAM chipset and provides a 20% more efficient battery consumption.

The Nexus 5 is still to have the traditional non-removable battery with 2300 mAh rating. The  Android 4.4 KitKat is  supposed to optimize battery pack, becoming longer lasting compared to the Nexus 4.

New Google Nexus 5 Release: This Is How Leaked Nexus 5 Looks Like, LG Manual Suggests

LG made the hugely successful Nexus 4. Since then LG and Google have decided that they will not be working with each other and that it has nothing to do with the fact that they blamed each other for the slow production of the smartphone. A new manual that has been leaked from LG makes it seem that the tech giant that gives us a pretty good idea what the upcoming Nexus 5 might be like

The manual is for a device code-named the LG G2. One interesting point is that under the camera on the back of the phone are volume keys. In-between these keys lay a biometric scanner – clearly for fingerprints. Considering that people are becoming more and more conscious of their mobile phone’s security, this will definitely be much appreciated by consumers. The screen is 5.2 inches and has 1080p resolution. Supposedly running a Snapdragon 800 processor mated to 3GB of RAM this phone should be quite a powerhouse. Expect the Nexus 5 to have very similar if not exactly the same specs. What is on everyone’s mind is if Google will release the Nexus 5 with its new Android operating system 5.0 Lime Key Pie.

The LG G2 is expected to be revealed by this August and the Nexus 5  release in October.

Nexus 4 vs Nexus 5 – Should We Wait for Nexus 5 or Buy the Nexus 4 Now?

LG google nexus 4 and nexus 5The LG Nexus 4 has been one of the most impressive smartphones I’ve seen recently – and not just because of it’s low price tag! An executive at LG Electronics has confirmed that they won’t be making the successor to the phone, nicknamed the Google Nexus 5. The big question now is if we should wait for the Nexus 5 or buy the Nexus 4 now?

In the best of circumstances this isn’t an easy question to answer. Common sense dictates that the Nexus 5 will be released the same time as the previous model – October. So the wait isn’t really all that long. But then again, Google has said nothing about who will be making the new phone? Will it be as good as the LG made Nexus 4 which sold out in minutes after its release? Google and LG have been blaming each other about the slow production of the Nexus 4. It’s expected that the Nexus 5 will have better specifications. The big issue with the Nexus 4 though is its availability, since it’s not in production and demand is high third party retailers have been selling them at inflated prices.

Until we have a little more information from Google, it is difficult to decide whether to wait for the Nexus 5 or buy the Nexus 4 now. If you can, the wait till October for a Nexus 5 release could be worth a while. Of course, it could or could not happen. So if you need a phone and an  upgrade would not matter, picking the LG Nexus 4 could be your answer.… Read the rest

HTC One Vs Samsung Galaxy S3 Vs LG Nexus 4: Does iIt Make Sense To Lust After The Latest Android Phone?

The HTC One was showcased a few weeks ago and yes, we are impressed. But for those of you looking to pick up a good Android-based smartphone in the near future, does it make sense to hold off your purchase until it hits the market? Or should you end up picking the current market faves like Galaxy S3 or the Nexus 4? Read on to get your answer:

HTC One: HTC’s flagship smartphone for 2013 features a 4.7-inch full HD display with the highest resolution so far of 468 ppi. But there’s much more going on in this phone with its all metal slick body. HTC has also put in an interesting camera with its own Ultrapixels technology to let you click sharper, better pictures with more realistic color reproduction. And then there’s the Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean with an overlay of HTC’s vastly improved Sense 5.0 UI. The HTC One is powered by a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM. It comes with 32 GB of internal storage, but we doubt if there’s a microSD card slot on it, and there’s also a 2,300 mAh battery fitted.

Samsung Galaxy S3: This phone went on to become the world’s favorite smartphone in 2012 and propelled Samsung into becoming the world leader in smartphones. The Galaxy S3 has a slightly bigger 4.8-inch screen, but in terms of resolution, its 306 ppi screen is no match for the HTC One’s. Powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz Exynos 4412 processor and 1 GB of RAM, you will find it less powerful than the HTC One too. But yes, the phone comes with 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage as well as the provision to expand its storage capacity using microSD cards, which is indeed a huge plus. The 8 MP rear camera probably doesn’t work as well as the HTC One’s Ultrapixels offering. The Galaxy S3 is fitted with a 2,100 mAh battery offering over 11 hours of talktime.

LG Nexus 4: The Google flagship smartphone by LG sports a 4.7-inch screen with a 318 ppi resolution. Powered by a 1.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM, it sure is more powerful than the Galaxy S3. In terms of camera, its 8 MP camera gives it equal footing with the Samsung offering. The LG Nexus 4 runs on Android 4.2 and is upgradeable up Android 4.2.2. But it comes with just 8 GB of 16 GB of internal storage and lacks a microSD card slot, so if you need more storage, you’re better off picking some other phone. Like the Galaxy S3, this one too has a 2,100 mAh battery offering about 15 hours of talktime.

Samsung Galaxy S4 Vs LG Nexus 4: Samsung Is Nailing The Galaxy Trend But Can It Take Away From Google?

Samsung finally unveiled its latest flagship smartphone for 2013 amidst much anticipation from tech enthusiasts the world over. And yes, from the first few glimpses, it sounds real amazing. But will the Galaxy S4 manage to pull the crowds away from the Google Nexus 4 smartphone, which rose to extreme popularity following its launch last year? The reasonably priced phone sure is high on specs, but can the Galaxy S4 affect its sales now? Read on to know which of these phones makes most sense for you.

Samsung Galaxy S4: The first impression about the phone may be a little lackluster – its all-plastic body doesn’t exactly feel premium, but power the screen on and you will change your mind for sure. The Galaxy S4’s 5-inch full HD display is sharp and crystal clear. The LTE version of the phone is powered by a quad-core 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 processor while the 3G version of this phone comes with Samsung’s octo-core Exynos 5 processor. Both versions have 2 GB of RAM. Add to that its 13 MP rear camera and 2 MP front-facing camera, both with a wide variety of camera functions, and the Galaxy S4 becomes a perfect companion for the photo-lovers. The Galaxy S4 is fitted with a 2,600 mAh battery and runs on Android 4.2.2.

LG Nexus 4: The Google Nexus 4 smartphone was manufactured by LG and comes with a 4.7-inch display with a resolution of 318 ppi. Running on Android 4.2.2, it is powered by a quad-core 1.5 GHz Krait processor and 2 GB of RAM. The LG Nexus 4 is fitted with an 8 MP rear camera and a 1.3 MP front-facing camera. The huge downside in this phone – it lacks LTE connectivity. A 2,100 mAh battery gives the phone a talktime of over 15 hours. But at the end of the day, its USP remains its price-point. So if you’re looking for a pocket-friendly superstar, this will continue to remain your best option.… Read the rest

Google Nexus 4:The World Can’t Wait For This Delicious Tablet

Looks like the world can’t wait to see what new offerings Google has lined up for us. Just a few more hours to go until Google’s official announcement, but images of the Nexus 4, rumored to be unveiled tomorrow, have surfaced yet again on the internet. Google is expected to make an announcement about the new LG Nexus 4 smartphone during their October 29 event, which unfortunately had to be canceled due to Hurricane Sandy hitting the US East Coast.

The Nexus 4 sports a 4.7-inch LCD touchscreen with a resolution of 1280X768 pixels, and is powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon quad-core processor and 2GB of RAM. As of now, what we’re hearing is that this phone will come with only 8GB of internal storage space and no card slots for memory expansion. If this is true, then could this be one of the only downers in this beautiful device.

The phone is expected to have 2G as well as 3G connectivity, in addition to WiFi, Bluetooth and even NFC connectivity options. 4G, however, is not an option on the Nexus 4. You can expect the phone to have at least an 8MP rear camera as well as a front facing camera – its resolution, however, is not known as yet. While there are rumors that this phone could run on Android 4.2, we believe it probably would feature Android 4.1.2 or the Jelly Bean version.… Read the rest
