We have seen our fair share of commercials, both good and bad. Then there are some that belong in a completely different category. The ones that make zero sense and are just ridiculously stupid. We are only in the 3rd month of the year, but it might be safe to go ahead and give LG the award for the worst commercial of 2014. I won’t say anymore about it. Just hit the break, watch it, and wonder why you wasted 2 minutes of your life on it.
LG will be sending the L90 to Russia later this week.While it’s not launching in other areas yet, this is a good sign that it will soon. The device packs a 4.7 inch screen, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 2,540 mAh battery. On top of that it sports either a 5 or 8MP rear camera and a 1.3MP front camera.

In the past, LG G-series devices have served as the outline for Google Nexus devices. The latest LG G-series flagship device, the LG G3, is rumored to have a release date of sometime in June. Will it serve as the backbone for the Google Nexus 6? Rumors suggest that it will, but there will be a few differences in the two devices.
The Nexus 6 will likely drop a few features from the G3, as other Nexus devices have done in the past. However the fact that the Nexus 6 will be a “lightweight” version suggests that there might be some more drastic changes, such as a different processor.
After experiencing some leaks, LG’s G Pad 8.3 is finally heading to Verizon on March 6. From that date through March 10, the tablet will be available for $99 with a new two-year contract. It will then cost $199. And if you are not interested in signing away two years of your life, Verizon will have the LG G Pad 8.3 available for $299 without a new two-year contract. In case you forgot, the G Pad 8.3 has gorgeous full HD IPS display and a quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM.

Owners of the LG G Flex will be happy to know that when they get the Android 4.4 update support for 4K video will come with it. The folks over at Phone Arena received a tip and this tip was backed by a User Profile that shows the curved phone offering video at 2160p. On top of that, the update will allow the camera to do 120 fps slow motion video as well.
So when the update goes live, you can expect to see some decent photo and video enhancements on top of Android 4.4‘s features. Look for that update to come here sometime soon.

The latest device to get Android 4.4.2 is the T-Mobile variant of the LG G2. Technically, it was available a few days ago via the PC Utility app, but it is now available via an OTA update. If you haven’t received a notification prompting you to update just yet, follow these steps:
- From Settings, tap General.
- Tap About phone.
- Tap Update center.
- Tap System updates.
- Tap Check now.
- Follow on screen prompts.
The update should make your device much faster, in addition to bringing new features and improvements.
A person going by the username of “Geek” posted an image taken with the LG G3 camera on ortud.com. Now just like any other post like this, it could be a waste of our time, but it could also give us an early indication of the LG G3 camera.
According to “Geek”, the G3 has the same sensor (13MP) as the G Pro 2, but with the addition of optical image stabilization (OIS). He also said to expect the device to be released in July, which slightly coincides with the latest rumors.
The upcoming LG G3 has had a lot of rumors surrounding it. Originally, rumors suggested that the device would be released sometime in May, but new sources suggest that instead the device will be released in June.
While we certainly don’t know for sure if these or any other rumors surrounding the device are true, it does seem very possible, especially seeing as even Sony has announced a bi-annual flagship mobile strategy. The device will likely be quite similar to the LG G2, and will include updated hardware.
LG’s Chul Bae Lee had plenty to say when being interviewed by a Russian technology site. Lee is the company’s leader over at the design center, so he is a pretty credible source to be saying all of this. On the subject of metal phones, Lee questions why HTC has not been very successful if metal is a huge demand. Also, he claims LG is considering the introduction of metal; however, no time frame is provided. Lee then switched gears to Apple and metal. He says that Apple’s iPhone has poor reception due to metal interfering with the wireless signal. And finally, Lee assures everyone that LG will not produce a very thin metal smartphone like Huawei since battery life would take a huge hit.
Lee also talked about the success of the LG G2′s design. In a pre-release survey, about 50% favored the placement of the volume and power buttons on the backside. In return, LG was very happy and continued to run with the design (as if they had a choice at that point). Lee also feels that reviews for the G2′s design have been respectable.
While it might be some time before the Android 4.4 KitKat update on the T-Mobile LG G2 rolls out over the air, the update is now detectable straight from LG through the PC utility. If you are comfortable manually installing the update you can also get it through a download link.
The new update will bring a number of standard KitKat features, such as the white notifications bar icons, as well as a number of performance upgrades.
