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!

Some time ago, we were invited to preview the Optimus G Pro Smartphone at the Patisserie G @ Millennia Walk, and we had the opportunity to touch, feel, and play with the Optimus G Pro Smartphone.

The Optimus G Pro is the first smartphone in Singapore with a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS display and it has double the resolution compared to a HD IPS display. With the immersive Full HD IPS display on the Optimus G Pro, it offers users an optimal image quality.

The Optimus G Pro sports a very urban and sleek look and with its crystal reflection, the Optimus G Pro is stunningly attractive as well. Available in two colours, Indigo Black and Lunar White, the Optimus G Pro has a size of 150.2mm X 76.14mm X 9.4mm and weighs 172g. Due to its slim design, the Optimus G Pro allows users to have an optimal grip that fits perfectly into their hands.

Utilizing the latest advanced technology, the Optimus G Pro features an array of multi-dimensional user experience [UX] features that enhance the users’ engagement with the smartphone and we really like a few of them. In case you’re wondering, some of the UX features like the QSlide 2.0 are already available on the LG Optimus G Smartphone.

QSlide 2.0

The QSlide 2.0 function allows users to overlay two different screens simultaneously on one display. This hence allows users to do two things at once, such as send a text message or search the web while also watching a video.


The Optimus G Pro is the world’s first smartphone that is equipped with an all-in-one remote control. To use this function, users just have to register the home appliances into the Optimus G Pro and thereafter, the user can control the electronic devices through infrared signal. The QuickRemote supports up to nine home electronics or appliances such as TV sets, set-top boxes, air conditioners, audio visual equipments, projectors and blu-ray players from a variety of brands. This is definitely one UX feature of the Optimus G Pro that we really love!

Smart Video

With advanced eye recognition technology, Smart Video recognizes the position of the viewer’s eyes and automatically plays or stops the video without any manual input from the user.

Dual Camera and Dual Recording

The Dual Camera and Dual Recording functions allow users to capture pictures or videos with both the front and rear cameras simultaneously. Users can now partake in the video during any special moments and capture all the wonderful expression made from both sides of the camera.

VR Panorama

The VR Panorama function allows the creation of seamless and picturesque 360° view of scenic shots horizontally and vertically.

Pause and Resume Recording

The Pause and Resume Recording feature allows for the recording of short snippets of videos which can then be viewed as one uninterrupted video, thereby reducing the time and effort taken to string the clips together to form a continuous running clip. This is a rather useful UX feature that will come in handy for users whom are constantly producing videos as it will cut short the time needed for video-editing.

In addition to all these wonderful UX features that are available on the Optimus G Pro, the swift 1.7 GHz Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ quad-core processor enhances the processing power of the smartphone by up to 24%! This hence supports data transfers and the launch of resource-intensive applications at blazing fast speed.

The Optimus G Pro runs on the Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 platform and has a 2GB DDR RAM and an onboard memory capacity of 16GB. The memory capacity is expandable with a microSD card of up to 64GB. The Optimus G Pro uses the MicroSIM card and it supports 4G mobile networks.

The Li-Ion battery on the Optimus G Pro is removable and has a capacity of 3140mAh. This is the largest battery capacity for a 5.5-inch smartphone. Besides charging the smartphone using the USB cable, the Optimus G Pro can also be charged using a wireless charging dock that is sold separately. As such, you can charge the Optimus G Pro conveniently anywhere, any time.

With the growing demand for 4G smartphones, the Optimus G Pro smartphone is a phone not to be missed as it supports all LTE frequency bands. This makes it compatible with any 4G LTE network in the world. With a quad-band mobile antenna, the Optimus G Pro is able to secure the fastest LTE speeds, supporting both 2×2 and 4×2 multiple-input-multiple-output [MIMO] channel configuration. Hence, it is no surprise that the LG Optimus G Pro was awarded the Best LTE Device/Handset Award at the LTE World Summit 2013 that took place at Amsterdam.

It offers users a maximum user experience, high performance, and better graphics quality.

The display on the LG Optimus G Smartphone offers the sharpest and clearest image, colour accuracy and natural, non-saturated colours.

The memory capacity of the LG Optimus G Smartphone is 32GB and it is definitely enough for storing your movies, music, and photographs.

Front Camera
The 1.3 Megapixels front camera on the LG Optimus G Smartphone is useful for taking self-photos and also for video calls with your family members and friends.

Rear Camera
The rear camera on the LG Optimus G Smartphone is perhaps one of the best camera that Smartphones in the market have. With a whopping 13 Megapixels camera, it is expected to perform even better than the 8 Megapixels camera on the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.

The 2100mAh Battery in the LG Optimus G Smartphone is un-removable and in tests conducted by LG, the LG Optimus G Smartphone can last for 335 hours on standby!

Comparing between the iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, the LG Optimus G is 0.15mm slimmer than the Samsung Galaxy S3 but thicker than the iPhone 5 by 0.85mm. With that being said, the LG Optimus G Smartphone can be slipped into pockets easily with no obstruction.
