The Samsung Z, Samsung’s first Tizen-powered phone, has finally been officially unveiled, and it appears to be a curious mix of a mid-range screen and a top-end processor (close to the speed of the processor in the Samsung Galaxy S5). However, what will be most interesting, for us, is watching how well Tizen OS does when it goes up against established platforms like Android. It will be very interesting to see how this one plays out.
Just as Christmas is sure to arrive each year, the same can now be said for an iPhone launch, and a prerequisite torrent of rumours, speculation and hype. For many, there’s little distinguishable difference between the two events.
HTC is rumoured to be working on a smartwatch called the HTC One Wear, which is projected to be unveiled around the end of August. Details are scant, but it’s said to have a round face, like the Moto 360, with a choice of polycarbonate or metal shells. It’s also possible that it will be a standalone unit, able to work without being linked up to a phone like the HTC One M8.
Now that the LG G3 has been officially unveiled, it’s time to pit it against its biggest rival, the wildly popular Samsung Galaxy S5. We compare the two phones in terms of their designs, their power, their screens, their cameras, and any little extra features that could swing your vote either way. Who will win in this clash of the titans?
LG has spoken out on the design choices made during the development of the LG G3, and they help to explain why the phone is the way it is. Going by the mantra of “we want to beat Samsung”, LG set about crafting a phone that would stand out, with its laser-assisted autofocus camera and its magnificent Quad-HD screen surpassing anything else on the market. Whether it will be enough to beat the Samsung Galaxy S5 remains to be seen, but thanks to the choices LG made, it certainly has the prowess to attempt it!
