Forums added for the Moto E, LG G3, and LG L3 II, L5 II, L7 II, L9 II

We recently added a few forums for some upcoming devices from LG and Motorola. First up is Motorola’s offering. Back near the tail end of last year, Motorola released the highly regarded (and budget friendly) Moto G. What made this device special wasn’t its spec sheet or its hardware design, but rather the fact that Motorola could produce a wallet-friendly device worth truly wanting. Now, Motorola has followed up on the G by unveiling the even more affordable Moto E. While technically offering low end specifications such as a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon 200 processor, a single gig of RAM, and a qHD (not to be confused with QHD) display, the E still manages to pack a relatively untouched UI, Android 4.4.2, and a promise of expedient future updates—all in a device that will run just $129 off contract.

Next up, we have LG’s offerings. We’ll start with the upcoming LG G3, which will formally be announced later this month. The G3 is LG’s next generation flagship device, following up on last year’s popular LG G2, which also served as the foundation for the smash hit Google Nexus 5. Not much is known for sure about the G3’s specifications, but most rumors point to a 5.5-inch QHD (not qHD) panel with a 534 ppi pixel density, LG’s 2.2/1.7 GHz octa-core Odin processor (though some leaks also point at a Snapdragon 801), and perhaps even a fingerprint reader. Finally, we also added a forum for the LG L3 II, L5 II, L7 II, and L9 II, which build upon last year’s modestly priced LG L3, L5, and L7.

Are you eyeing any of the above as your next device? Have the Moto E‘s relatively untainted Android experience, decent specifications, and amazing price won you over? Or is the flagship LG G3 more your fancy? What about the LG L3 II, L5 II, L7 II, and L9 II? Let us know in the comments below, and head over to the newly created forums to get in on the action.
