LG’s G3 announcement is almost here, but it seems they won’t have anything new to show us. Moto X may have a nice surprise, though. In other news, Nest has issued a recall on one of its products.
Just as we assumed, there is a new leak before tomorrow’s LG G3 announcement. This one is quite a big one too. LG Netherlands has put the device’s official website live. It’s most likely an accident, but the site has been up for some hours now.
All rumored specs are pretty much the same, but there are a couple differences in LG Netherlands’ leak. It seems the device may have only 2 GB of RAM, as opposed to 3 GB. In addition, this leak shows only 16 GB of internal storage, but that is something that may come in difference sizes and configurations.
There’s also mention of new and improved features. There is a sleeker camera, a “Quick Circle” feature that allows you to create shortcuts for your favorite apps, and there is mention of the laser auto-focus function.
Opinion: The LG G3 looks like a strong contender in the smartphone battle. Not to mention, 2 GB is still pretty good for most people. I can’t wait for tomorrow!
The Moto X has been only offered in 16 GB and 32 GB configurations, but this may not be the case for long. The guys from mobiltelefon.ru have discovered clues of a 64 GB Moto X in Moto Maker’s code. This means it shouldn’t be long before we see this version launching.
In addition, the price has been discovered. The 64 GB version is said to cost $100 more than the 16 GB version. This amounts to $449.99, which is not a bad price for such a great smartphone.
Opinion: I honestly don’t know how much you guys are doing with your smartphones. I never use more than about 10 GB of my storage. IF you like to carry a huge music library, photos and tons of videos, though, this may be one of your best options.
Nest has been found itself forced to recall 440,000 of their Protect smoke detectors. This is due to a feature that has been deemed rather dangerous. “Nest Wave” allows you to wave at an alarm to turn it off, which could cause involuntary deactivations.
In addition, Nest is also telling us that, though owned by Google, they operate completely different. This is just to ensure people that Nest does not plan to put ads on its products… at least for now.
Opinion: Nest’s products are amazingly smart, but sometimes simplicity is what’s needed. This smoke detector might be safer if it requires direct interaction.
