Watch today’s Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the pre-orders for the Galaxy Note 3 in most of the major US carriers, and even the LG G2 reached the same luck on AT&T. We then talk about the Nokia Lumia 1520, as we finally have leaked press renders of the device. Then we talk about the rumors of an Amazon smartphone that might be free for their customers. We later talk about Android 4.4 KitKat, even though it’s odd that everything currently focuses on selling us KitKat bars. We end today’s show talking about the LG Nexus 5, which is apparently at the FCC right [...]
There’s no denying that LG is doing everything they can to become a top-tier smartphone player in today’s world. Their exposure with the LG Nexus 4 has been quite positive, and our experience with the Optimus G was also quite pleasing. Their recent announcement of the LG G2 did leave us with an interesting device that we’re very eager to test, and as it turns out, this should happen very soon.

Samsung’s 384GB storage chip takes the spotlight next, even though it’s hard to tell when we’ll get it. We end today’s [...]
I always try to understand why the smartphone market is so unique in the way its market share behaves. If you look at the automobile industry, surely there are top players, and surely there are companies that are having a hard time economically, but there’s also a group of players that don’t lead, don’t lose, and simply compete in a way that allows them to keep going. They have their own loyal customers, and in some cases, they even lead sales in certain states for many reasons that aren’t worth mentioning here. Smartphones don’t behave that way. There are [...]
LG is doing its darnedest to stay relevant in a fiercely competitive smartphone market, and today in New York City we got the chance to check out its latest effort to do just that, with the launch of the flagship G2.
The long-anticipated Android is the first model we’ve seen that will ship with a Snapdragon 800 under the hood (not counting hardware refreshes like the GS4 LTE-A), but this phone isn’t just about raw specs – LG made a big deal at its presentation this morning to call attention to the very deliberate design process that created the G2, contributing [...]
