White Nexus 4 surfaces again, this time in a video

image

We’re just hours away from Google I/O & finding out just what Google has in store for us this year. A video from Techviewme.com of a white LG Nexus 4 has surfaced on the Web that makes one think that this could very well be one of the small device upgrades Google will show at I/O (Video below) . I say small upgrades because Google head if Android recently stated in an interview that there will not be any “New” device announcements at Google I/O.

Back to the White Nexus 4, I personally don’t like when companies make white devices that are only white on the back of the device. Really what’s the point if with a case on it you won’t be able to tell if it’s a white or black model since they will look exactly the same. The only way you’ll be able to see the difference is if the case you use on the device is the bumper case available in the PlayStore. I Always suggest using a case on any phone since your always just one small mistake away from having to replace a broken display without one Nomatter what phone you have. This is especially the case with the Nexus 4 since it features a glass front & back so not a fan of the color change being only on the back here. However this may not be the only change as some have suggested that this new model may also be an LTE enabled model, but we’ll have to wait and see possibly later today.

Copying the Market leaders seems to be a trend right now

image

The HTC ONE was launched the other day & many were making alot of comparisons of the phone & the actual presentation to Apple & the iPhone.
Now it’s LG’s turn as they seem to be copying the other leader in the mobile market Samsung. In a video showing the features of LG’s new Optimus G Pro you can see that they have a feature called Q Slide in which you can write on the screen in a S-Pen type way or where you can run split screens or floating video, both exactly like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2.(check the video below)

They also seem to be copying Samsung when it comes to advertising as seen in this video which is an obvious poke at Apple which Samsung is no stranger at doing. Basically it’s showing that their phone can also take panoramic shots like the iPhone but it can take it a step further with photo sphere. You might feel like you’ve seen the video as it is identical to the iPhone one with the many children in a lineup. (Check out the video below)

Do you think these are good strategies or just plain ripping off the others & you’d like to see some originality from these other device makers?
Let us know in the comments below.

White Nexus 4, Real or Fake?

image

A photo showed up on the net today of a white Nexus 4 & it looks beautiful. Rumours were that LG started making a white version a few weeks into production of the original black model, & well it could very well be coming out real soon. This could also be just a very good rendering, but with past Nexus models being released in white it seems like a reality.

Have you been thinking of getting the Nexus 4, does this white version seem appealing? Let us know.

LG begins initial rollout of Jelly Bean to Optimus G

image

LG’s 4.7″ quad core Optimus G has begun to receive some Jelly Bean loving in the form of a Android 4.1 update. Users in Korea seem to be receiving the update in its initial push. This gives users in Canada a ray of sunshine as it should be heading to North America fairly soon.
Hopefully this is also a sign that LG is taking updates a little more seriously in 2013. After angering many users of LG devices that were left out of the loop when Android 4.0 ICS was rolling out about a year ago many lost faith in the company and their venture into the Android market.

Is LG working on the Next Nexus Phone already?

LG Nexus 5

Rumour has it LG might be working on the Next Nexus device to have it ready in time for Google I/O. Now take this with a boulder of salt because as I see it working with LG again on such an important device seems like a terrible idea after such shortages of the Nexus 4.
Not only will the next-gen Nexus smart­phone be the fifth model in the series, but it will also sport a 5-inch display, hence the Nexus 5 name will make sense for more than one solid reason. The display will obviously sport a Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution (440 PPI), which seems to be a display standard for high-end hand­sets this year, the all-new NVIDIA Tegra 4 proces­sor, 2GB of RAM, 8/16GB of storage, 13-megapixel camera with LED flash and auto focus and a 3 megapixel front facing camera.

Wow those are some great specs & if true you can sure bet I’ll have one in my hands for more than just a demo.
What do you think of this rumour & the suspected specs?
