LG Optimus G

Could LG have launched the Optimus G here at a worse time? Rumours of an Optimus G Pro were already floating around at its local launch, and the world was on the lookout for upcoming super phones such as the HTC One or Samsung’s Galaxy S4.

Nonetheless, the Optimus G is an excellent Android phone that’s well worth a look if you’re currently looking at an upgrade.

LG Optimus G

LG’s Optimus G was unveiled in September last year – an age ago in mobile electronics – and will finally be available in Singapore this Saturday for  S$798 without a telco contract.

The Optimus G is undoubtedly the first LG phone to warrant any real excitement, a fact that even LG executives on hand at the launch event were not shy to admit. What’s all the fuss about?

Just when you think your spanking new, ultra-thin, borderless TV is the toast of town, you might want to know that sharper, bigger and curved, yes, curved screens are making their way to your living room in the next few years.

If you have more than US$10,000 in the bank now, you could actually buy some of these new OLED (organic light-emitting diode) and 4K TVs this year. But chances are, these screens which appear to be the highlight of this week’s CES technology expo in Las Vegas will become a lot more affordable in the years to come.

So you just got your new Google Nexus 4 and are itching to jazz it up with some cool accessories or apps. Unfortunately, at least for Singapore, where the phone is yet to start shipping officially, there aren’t that many cases and add-ons to shop for in the retail stores.

But no worries, there’s always Amazon and your familiar reseller in tech forums to help out. Fancy a wireless charger, a handy wireless tag or case? Here are five worth checking out.

Goondu review: Google Nexus 4

29 Dec


My eager hands finally gripped the long-awaited Nexus 4 when the DHL man arrived with it at my doorstep on Christmas Eve last week.

Now, after a week of using Google’s newest branded phone, I have to say it’s a very satisfying upgrade from my previous Samsung Galaxy S II, which was itself a great phone I had used for more than a year.

The Nexus 4, however, is not without its issues, though on the whole, it’s hard to fault a phone that truly punches above its weight in terms of its price. I had paid S$490, including tax and shipping from the United States for the phone, which is not sold in Singapore yet.
