The LG G4 has a lot to prove, given that last year’s LG G3 was among the best smartphones of 2014. The Global Mobile Awards given out during the time of MWC 2015 named it the Smartphone of The Year (SOTY?) alongside the iPhone 6, and at the time of its release it packed the very best in Android specifications, from the powerful Snapdragon 801 to the class-leading 1440p display. The camera, battery life and feature set were also deemed...
Forums Added for the Oppo Find 7, HTC One (2014), and Galaxy Note 3 Neo
Just yesterday, Chinese electronics manufacturer Oppo unveiled the Oppo Find 7. The device is essentially a tour de force of high end and class-leading specifications. Available in two configurations, the high end model features a 5.5-inch Quad HD screen, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 AC processor, and 3 GB of RAM. The “lower end” variant packs a plebian 1080p screen, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 AB processor, and 2 GB of RAM. Both variants pack a rather hefty 3000 mAh battery, and feature a 13 MP camera that can assemble 50 MP images thanks to a neat little software trick. And with how developer friendly the Find 5 proved to be, it will be of little surprise to see quite a bit of aftermarket development appear on the Find 7.
Next up, we have the HTC One (2014). While the device hasn’t formally been announced yet, the formal product announcement is expected for five days from now. Coming as the successor to last year’s highly regarded HTC One, the One 2014 will likely pack a 5-inch 1080p screen, a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, and 2 GB of RAM.
Finally, we have the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo. The Note 3 Neo is essentially a more budget friendly version of the Note 3. Featuring a 5.5-inch 720p display, an Exynos 5260 processor, and a 3100 mAh battery, it won’t exactly set the world on fire. However, it still features all of the S Pen glory that has made the Note lineup so popular.
Are any of these devices in your future? Do they have what it takes to earn a place in your pocket? Let us know in the comments below, and don’t forget to head over to the newly created Oppo Find 7, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, and HTC One (2014) forums!
