New leaks show LG may not be satisfied with 2K. HTC will not be keeping its promise. Meanwhile, T-Mobile is giving us some fun before the weekend starts.
The world is waiting to see what LG has to bring to the table with the G4. We can expect improved performance, stronger specs and maybe a slight design change, but we never thought LG would go for an even higher resolution display.
A new leaked document shows an LG-VS999, which is likely to be the Verizon-bound LG G4. It’s nothing but a bunch of coding and random letters, but there is a section that caught our eye. The code reveals that this phone comes with a 1620x2880p display.
The leak comes from an anonymous tipster , so we are not quite sure of its legitimacy yet. I suppose we will find out soon enough.
Opinion: We were not quite satisfied with the LG G3 and its screen, but what we actually wanted was a 1080p display! LG is going even higher. Let’s hope the LG G4 doesn’t come with the same pestering issues the LG G3 suffered from.
HTC aims to keep its users happy by offering quicker updates and more transparency. This is why they have set a 90-day goal for updating their latest devices (the count starts after Google releases the code). It seems this goal is not set in a very hard place, though, as they won’t be able to bring Lollipop to some carrier versions of the HTC One M8 and M7.
The 90-day period was set to end on February 1st, which is this weekend. They blame this on Google’s faulty code, which they seem to have been having some problems with. No ETA is given either, but let’s hope they get to finishing this update fast enough.
Opinion: Even if I am bearing bad news, I am glad to see HTC taking the right approach with this. They have admitted that they won’t make the goal and are being honest about it. I can always appreciate an honest manufacturer.
I don’t know about you guys, but I have had a blast ever since John Legere took over T-Mobile as CEO. He has no restrictions and doesn’t mind calling it like it is. This has lead him to become a strong personality in the industry, and we can bet he had something to do with the latest ad.
In its latest commercial, T-Mobile pretty much calls other manufacturer vultures, just taking away your data with no shame. Check it out!
Opinion: To be honest, rollover data makes sense. All carriers should do it. And this is not just me talking as a person who wants more goodies. This data is ours! This is why we have tiered data plans, we are paying for every single one of those bytes. Why should carriers take them away? Imagine if restaurants didn’t let you take your leftovers home. It’s the same idea.
