The LG G3 is not only new with their hardware but they have also revamped its user interface with a flat and minimalistic design. To explain its design principles, LG has released a 3 minute long video on its new user interface.
With mobile screens becoming clearer thanks to high resolution displays, most smart phone makers tend to put more details on its native icons and apps to emphasize on screen quality. After time, this doesn’t seem to be a good idea as the experience gets cluttered. Even with the LG G3’s Quad HD display, they have decided to focus on better usability with greater emphasis of content.
Its latest UI uses a unique design style which employs light fonts, flat graphics and circular motifs which are similar to Apple’s iOS 7. To take a step further, they even use “mature-feeling” colours for a more toned down look so that the content doesn’t get overpowered. You can watch the LG G3 UI video after the break.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 will be the Korean maker’s next big thing considering its earlier rumoured high-spec Galaxy S5 model turns out to be a LTE-A variant that’s exclusive in their home country. While the rumours of this new phablet have been trickling in, a fresh batch of credible info has appeared on Antutu Benchmark.
Matching earlier speculation, the Galaxy Note 4 was spotted in 2 variants – a Octa-Core Exynos 5433 (SM-N910C) model and Quad-Core Snapdragon 805 (SM-N910S) version. Processor aside, the rest of the specs are identical with both having 3GB RAM, 32GB of on-board storage and a 16MP main camera. The front camera is listed with a 3.68MP unit, which is largest we’ve seen for their flagship model. Samsung is probably taking the Selfie generation more seriously as other makers have been bumping its front camera like the Huawei Ascend P7 with its a 8MP front shooter.
In terms of software, it runs on a more recent Android 4.4.3 KitKat but they probably would upgrade this to the newer Android 4.4.4 before its launch. Another critical spec which isn’t shown is the display. Like its latest Galaxy S5 LTE-A, the Galaxy Note 4 will be sporting a Quad HD display of 2560×1440 pixels resolution but it is said to have maintained the same 5.7″ screen size of its current Galaxy Note 3. This gives it a pixel density of 515 ppi (pixels per inch) which is lower than the 576ppi from the Galaxy S5 LTE-A’s 5.1″ Quad HD display.
