People often associate the number 6 as a lucky number and I was very privileged (lucky) to have the opportunity to “own” the LG G6 for this feature that I am about to write.
The First Impression

The LG G6 is solidly built and it feels good in the hand. I really like the stylish metallic design at the back and every part of the phone feels premium and not plasticky. In fact, I daresay that the LG G6 is the best-looking phone that LG has ever made.

When I pushed the “on” button, the boot time certainly took quite a while but once I got right to the main menu, things started to get more familiar. The user interface appeared to be quite similar as that of the Apple iOS and any apps that are installed will very much fill up the home screen like the iPhone as the LG G6 doesn’t have the traditional app drawer.

What is LG G6’s most unique selling point would be its cinematic viewing experience that is made possible by the 18:9 Quad High Definition+ FullVision display. Not only is it the first smartphone to feature Dolby Vision technology, the LG G6 also supports HDR 10. As such, it displays more vividly the darkest and brightest areas of a video for a thrilling experience.

Photography enthusiasts will also appreciate the fact that the LG G6 retains the dual-camera system that offers both the standard and wide-angle lenses 13-MP sensors.

The Square Camera Mode has also been praised for offering new ways to create photos. The Snap shot splits the screen into two, with the upper half being a viewfinder while the bottom half allows us to preview the photo taken for easy comparison.

With the Match shot, it gives us the ability to juxtapose two different photos such as an ice cream cone with fluffy cotton candy to create a new photo. Spilt into four quadrants, the Grid shot allows us to directly create a collage with photo and video contents. Last but not the least, the Guide shot acts a guide for the next photo and this allows us to match the composition of a chosen image even with different backdrops.

Although I really like how the LG G6 gives me the opportunity to be creative with my photographs, I feel that the photos taken are not so accurate although it does appear sharp and crisp on the display.

In terms of its specifications and performance, the LG G6 sports a Snapdragon 821, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage and ample space for microSD card expansion. If durability is a deciding factor for you, you will be pleased to know that the LG G6 boasts IP68 water and dust resistance, which means it can be submerged in 1.5 meters of water for long as 30 minutes. As such, heavy duty users can relish a carefree experience and worry less about accidental drops in water and spillages.

Battery wise, I personally think it falls short as it was completely drained by the time I was about to leave work for home. However, thanks to the Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 tech, the battery does fills up pretty quickly.


I will conclude to say that the LG G6 is a multimedia powerhouse that will entice people who spend most of their time streaming web content. With its stylish design and solid build, I won’t be surprise if people decides to own the LG G6 not just for its dual-camera feature.

For the price of SGD$988, the LG G6 comes with an extended 12-month warranty for a total of 24 months of warranty with a free flip case worth SGD$58.

What’s more, if you’re a StarHub subscriber and you sign up for a 2-year HomeHub Go 1Gbps plan with the LG G6, you will receive a FREE LG 43” 4K UHD TV worth SGD$1,388!

The LG G6 comes in astro black, ice platinum and mystic white colours; and is available at M1, Singtel, StarHub and other LG authorized retailers.

Two weeks ago, we attended the media preview of the LG G Pro 2 phablet, the successor of the award winning LG G Pro and we really like some of the new added features that we believe many shutterbugs would love too!

Design & Aesthetics

Continuing the minimal and simplistic design of G, the design of G Pro 2 has been enhanced ergonomically as compared to its predecessor.

The G Pro2 has a non-slippery metal mesh finish on the back cover to offer a comfortable, non-slippery, and firm grip; and the Rear Key offers greater convenience and usability by allowing you to easily access commonly used features such as the QuickMemo and camera by long-pressing the (+) or (-) volume keys. Whether you’re right or left handed, the Rear Key, which is placed on the back where your index finger is naturally placed, also allows for a comfortable and easy grip.

Multimedia Features

Offering you the best viewing experience thanks to its 5.9-inch Full HD Display, the G Pro 2 will allow you to enjoy clearer and sharper images that capture every detail and accurate colours without distortion.

With the 1W Hi-Fi Sound, you can now enjoy rich and powerful sound effects when watching movies, music videos, or games. Through the 1 Watt Hi-Fi powerful speaker, the G Pro 2 offers studio quality sound without any loss of original sound.

G Pro 2 Camera Features

The enhanced powerful 13-megapixels OIS+ Camera that comes onboard the G Pro 2 will give you the best camera capabilities that are not only useful but also intuitive and simple to use.

The image quality of the G Pro 2 Camera is so astounding that it was used to photograph the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights).

  • Magic Focus

After a shot is taken, you ca have the option to select the preferred depth of focus before saving it. You can also press the all-in-focus icon to make every object in the frame look their sharpest.

  • Natural Flash

It offers a more balanced colour temperature and exposure for the most natural-looking photos compared to images taken with a normal flash.

  • Flash for Selfie

Thanks to the increased sensor size and reduced aperture from 2.6 to 2.2, you can enjoy a clear and lighter picture even in pitch dark environment.

  • 4K ULTRA HD recording

When you want to capture the true beauty of footage, you will now have the option to record it in Ultra High-Definition (4K ULTRA HD) mode that allows for the footage to be recorded in a resolution of 3840 pixels × 2160 lines.

G Pro 2 Performance

As the G Pro 2 is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.26GHz processor and 3GB RAM, launching multiple apps did not cause it to lag and multi-tasking was a breeze. Although it is equipped with a ‘best-in-class’ battery capacity of 3,200mAh with SiO+ technology, it’s overall battery life performance is average.

Our Opinion

With its practical rear button setup, the G Pro 2 allows for a better handling than similar or bigger-sized phablets. The G Pro 2 also boasts an excellent 5.9-inch Full-HD display and a 13-megapixel rear camera that delivers good image quality. Although the battery life performance of the G Pro 2 does not live up to expectations, spare batteries can be purchased for an additional boost.

To be honest, the G Pro 2 does not have any features which LG’s rivals cannot match up to. In fact, most of the features that come along with the G Pro 2 can be found in its rivals’ phablets and the only consolation is the advanced camera features which shutterbugs will find useful.

LG G Pro 2 (Titan Colour)

If you are looking for a phablet that allows you to take nice pictures and yet offers you a stunning display for watching your favourite movies or playing your favourite games while on the move, you might want to consider the G Pro 2 for your next phone purchase.

The LG G Pro 2 is available for purchase from 29 March 2014 at a recommended retail price of SGD$828 (without line contract and inclusive of GST). Two colours, Titan and White, will be available at launch and the G Pro 2 red model is slated to be launched at a later date.

LG is always at the forefront of innovative technology breakthrough. In this year alone, we have attended numerous product launches by LG and we have seen how the company always strive to constantly be the best in the field of ‘Smart Technology’.

Now what exactly is Smart Technology and how does it apply to us in our daily lives?

In our own terms, Smart Technology serves to provide a proven time-saving specific function that is relevant to the user, and its efficiency and effectiveness to help improve our everyday lives can be measured. Simply put, products that incorporate Smart Technology are easy to use, intuitive, saves time, and provides convenience to users.

There are a couple of products such as mobile phones, television [TV], and home appliances from LG that incorporates the use of Smart Technology and one fine example is the LG Smart TV. In the olden days, the TV is only used for watching TV shows but long gone are those days because in today’s modern society, the TV is not just for watching TV shows but it can also perform a variety of functions such as internet browsing, content streaming, and even the downloading of games that can be played on the TV.

As such, we have highlighted 2 really wonderful features of the LG Smart TV that all TV-addicts would die for:

1. Time Machine II

With the newly updated version of the LG’s Time Machine feature, TV programmes can now be recorded and saved onto the TV’s built-in memory. Users can record a TV channel while watching a different channel [only available in LA8600]; record a TV channel while watching a Blu-ray title; or schedule to record a programme even when the TV is not switched on. With LG’s Time Machine feature, you don’t have to worry about missing any of your favourite TV programmes anymore!

2. LG TV Tag On [via NFC]

As the LG TV Tag On feature uses NFC [Near Field Communication] technology, it comes with a NFC sticker and requires the user to download the LG TV Tag On App from the Google Play Store on his/her NFC-enabled Android smartphone before the feature can work.

With the LG TV Tag On feature, it is now possible for users to perform content streaming between an NFC-enabled Android smartphone and the LG smart TV. Now, how this works is as such; assuming you are watching a video on the LG Smart TV and it so happens you have a pretty bad stomachache and you have to make a trip to the washroom. With the LG TV Tag On feature, you can now bring whatever you are watching on the LG Smart TV to your portable handheld NFC-enabled Android smartphone. All you have to do is place your smartphone on the NFC sticker and the TV content will appear on your smartphone for viewing!

Having shown you how the LG Smart TV helps you to live smartly with the Smart Technology that is incorporated; we will now be using the LG G Flex smartphone that was created and recently launched by LG as another example.

The LG G Flex is poised to create a new milestone in the smartphone revolution, incorporating proprietary innovations from other LG companies in the form of the display and battery.

Here’s how the LG G Flex [incorporated with Smart Technology] will bring about convenience and practicality to the everyday ‘lifestylists’!


With the unique and vertically curved design of the LG G Flex, the distance between the user’s mouth and the microphone [when the device is held against the ear] is reduced and hence, optimised to deliver improved voice and sound quality. As a matter of fact, the LG G Flex curved design increases the sound level by 3 decibels as compared to typical flat smartphones. The LG G Flex curved design also offers a more reassuring grip and fits more comfortably in one’s back pocket.

In landscape mode, the display offers a cinematic experience to fit the contours of human’s eyes, providing users the most immersive and comfortable viewing angle for watching videos or playing games.

The LG G Flex also features the Rear Key function which was first introduced in the LG G2. Devoid of any buttons on the sides, there is less chance of accidentally powering off the phone and the convenience of using one’s index finger to adjust the volume when conversing is maintained.

LG Chem, a sister company of LG, developed the world’s first curved battery technology specifically for application in the LG G Flex. The curved battery in the G Flex is designed with LG Chem’s patented Stack & Folding technology, reducing the physical stress on the battery pack when in the curved form and provides better stability and performance. Despite its thin form, the LG G Flex battery has a capacity of 3,500mAh, enough power for more than a full day of use.


The LG G Flex has an array of new features that will prove to be useful for consumers. Some of the new features include QuickTheater, a feature that gives users quick access to photos, videos and YouTube right from the lock screen; Dual Window, a feature that divides the wide 6-inch screen into two separate windows for more effective multitasking; Face Detection Indicator, a feature that displays the LED on the Rear Key in green to confirm the status of face detection and focus during self-shots using the rear camera.

Among the several new technologies incorporated into the LG G Flex, the LG G Flex is the first smartphone to apply a “Self-Healing” coating on the back cover. This elastic coating has the ability to recover from the daily wear-and-tear scratches and nicks that un-cased smartphones are likely to receive, helping it to maintain a brand-new look.

With ergonomic features and Smart Technology incorporated into the LG G Flex, the LG G Flex certainly has much to offer! “LG has continued to learn from consumers and has broken boundaries with a distinctive and revolutionary product that is shaped to enhance consumers’ usage experience,” said Mr. Scott Jung, Managing Director, LG Electronics Singapore “The LG G Flex with its distinctive curved design, innovative hardware and consumer-centric UX sets the standard in the smartphone industry and represents the most significant smartphone development.”

Smartphones aside, we’re pretty confident that LG will continue to spearhead and pave the way for Smart Technology to be infused into our everyday life. With LG, Life is Good!

If this article about the LG G Flex is too technical to understand or comprehend, this video produced by the team from HardwareZone.com is definitely way easier to understand as it clearly demonstrates the new functions and features that is available with the LG G Flex.

The LG G Flex will be available at M1, Singtel, Starhub and other authorised LG mobile retailers from 21 December 2013 for a recommended retail price of SGD$1,088.

Say, “Yes!” to smart living with smart technology!

We were invited to the launch of the all-new LG G2 smartphone that took place last Thursday at The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore and we were blown away with the innovative features that LG has packed into the LG G2 smartphone.

As the LG G2 is packed with tons of features that would make this blog post an extremely lengthy one, we will only be zooming in on the features that we found pretty awesome and worth mentioning about.

Born from LG’s consumer-centric innovation, the LG G2 is the ultimate premium brand in the G series and it provides the most advanced smartphone experience for a very distinctive purpose; that is, offering real-life benefits to users.


More often than not, smartphones with strong performance tend to be bulky, thick, and crude in design, and sometimes you probably might find yourself getting stuck in a situation where you either sacrifice performance for design or vice-versa when choosing a smartphone.

Now, who says you can’t have the best of both worlds? With the LG G2, there is absolutely no compromise in both performance and design because the LG G2 provides a comfortable grip feeling even with a wide screen and slim design. Also, what is extremely unique about the LG G2 is that there are no buttons by the side of the phone but instead, the Rear Key has been ergonomically-designed and placed at the back of the phone.

The refined Rear Key carries out a myriad of functions and it utilizes the natural and frequent use of the index finger to provide a new level of convenience. When a user wants to turn the volume up or down, he/she doesn’t have to change the grip of the device because the Rear Key is place on the back where the user’s index finger is naturally placed. With the Rear Key, users are able to operate a number of frequently used features conveniently such as QuickMemo or Camera.



LG G2’s Stunning and Uninterrupted Wide Viewing with 5.2-inch Full HD IPS Display provides superior graphics, accurate colors, sharp text, outdoor visibility and dazzling images without distortion. The Full HD IPS display of LG G2 outperforms current Full HD smartphone display panels.


There are other smartphone cameras in the market with Optical Image Stabilizer [OIS] technology but it has mostly been available on 4 MegaPixels or 8 MegaPixels smartphone cameras. As such, the LG G2 is the first smartphone with a 13 MegaPixels OIS camera without any boxy bumps or unsightly lens housings; hence maintaining its slim and sleek design.

With LG G2’s OIS camera, users are liberated from the concerns of taking blurred pictures because the OIS technology constantly makes micro-adjustment that helps to keep the image clear, even when presented with shaky movement. Therefore, users also no longer have to worry about blurry images taken under dim light conditions.

Don’t believe the wonders of the LG G2’s OIS Camera? Well, we actually shared similar sentiments until we saw for ourselves this video that was captured by the LG G2’s OIS Camera.

LG G2’s 3,000mAh high-density battery backed by the SiO+ technology provides the best-in-class energy capacity.


The Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 processor redefines the smartphone experience through performance that no one can defeat. With Qualcomm, LG was able to deploy the chipset that is tightly integrated with the device in the LG G2 to offer a stable and striking performance. The LG G2 is the world’s first smartphone to be globally launched that incorporates this processor.


The LG G2 is the first Android smartphone featuring 24bit, 192kHz Hi-Fi sound playback. When users listen to 24bit, 192kHz Hi-Fi sound under an ideal condition, they can experience high quality ample sound that stands out compared to other sound sources such as CD.

Audio Zoom is a feature that allows you to focus on what you want to hear. It enables users to zoom in the sound, as they zoom in the images while video-recording. Not only is the image enlarged, the sound associated with the area is also amplified, thanks to LG G2’s multiple stereo mikes that amplify the sound from a specified area and de-emphasize the surrounding noise for video recording.

Here’s a video to illustrate the Audio Zoom feature.

Our Personal Take On The LG G2 smartphone?

The LG G2 smartphone is a worthy contender amongst the various Android smartphones that are currently available in the market. In terms of performance and specifications, the LG G2 is on the high side and coupled with the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad-core 2.2GHz processor with 2GB RAM, the LG G2 is rather intuitive and responsive. What’s more, the LG G2 smartphone is also an entertainment powerhouse where you can take great pictures and play some awesome high-quality audio tracks!

While we have been iOS users for quite awhile now, temptations to switch over to the Android platforms are pretty much in our mind especially with all the really cool and innovative features that Android smartphones can do. If we have to choose between the latest iPhone 5C/5S and the LG G2, we will definitely go for the LG G2.

For the price of SGD$898, the LG G2 will be available at all telcos and authorized retailers from 21st September 2013.

Summary of Key Specifications for the LG G2:
Processor: 2.26GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 800 featuring quad Krait CPU
