LG G3: the size!Shaun McGillThu, 24 Jul 2014 02:00:00 +0000http://www.lostinmobile.com/home/lg-g3-the-size52bd65a0e4b0aee2c11d35b4:52bd9eb3e4b09f4528ffce36:53cac01ce4b0669c8d1a87fe lgandiphone.jpg

I love the size of the G3 screen. So many apps feel completely different such as Flipboard and Flickr. It is an absolute joy to look at and use.

With a large screen, however, comes a large footprint and the fact is that it is cumbersome to carry in daily use. This has nothing to do with being familiar with the iPhone, but being aware that a phone that is with me the majority of the time needs to fit me, my pocket and my life. Phones like the G3 don't do that and neither does a device the size of the Galaxy S4. The Moto G does work, however, for me and suggests that the rumoured 4.7" iPhone 6 is about as big as I can go.

LG G3: the good and bad of the screen  Voir?

Flickr on the G3

Flickr on the G3

The LG G3 screen is stunning, it really is, and this is most apparent when playing very high definition video. Whether you will use it to its full specification often is debatable and it could be argued that it is ahead of its time.

TomTom, as you may know, is a very important app for me, but it does not work on the G3. The menus are there, but the main map screen is blank. That alone is a huge deal breaker for me.

Themer, as you can see below is another problem.

Oops

Oops

My Jawbone UP24 is proving to be very useful so I naturally tried to download the app.

Ouch!

Ouch!

If you are going to buy the G3, be prepared for some apps to be incompatible because I have already found four and I haven't downloaded many at all.

Do you decorate your tech?  Voir?

This advert gave me the thought that people in your loyal little group who like talking about their technical lives (and are like me) would love to show off the stickers they put on the outside of their hardware. It could be a combination "show us a photo of your stickers, or tell us why you prefer the bare look".... Kirk.

If you have  pic of your decorated tech, feel free to send it to shaun (at) mailstm.co.uk or if not, just let us know in the comments why you leave it bare. Have to say I have never put a sticker on any laptop, phone or tablet in my life and have never felt the need to.

LG G3: camera and battery  Voir?

lgmain.jpg

I am going to be using the LG G3 over the next week or so to see if it lives up to the hype and to also compare it to the iPhone 5S in crucial areas. Don't expect a huge long review because I have already resigned myself to feeling that it is too big and that Android is not for me at this time, but I am going to give it a go and see what happens.

So, how does it look in the coffee shop? I am joking of course, but in my local Costa Coffee the iPhone seems to rule and so I took the chance to take a quick snap with both phones to see how well the camera performed indoors.

The iPhone 5S shot looked washed out to me and with a lack of colour (click to enlarge)

I was much more impressed with the G3 shot. Notice the difference in zoom in default settings for both (click to enlarge)

OK, so the iPhone looks more suited to the hipster drinking coffee crowd, but the G3 takes a better indoor photo.

Outdoors in average light. The G3 coped well.

After much testing and getting used to the ridiculously quick speed of the G3 camera, I concluded that it is better than the 5S for almost every shot. It consistently produced better results for me.

The battery

Huge battery performance so far and I have not come close to running out during a busy day. The payback is that it can take a long time to charge, particularly over USB, but it would appear that the positive reviews of the LG G3 battery published to date are accurate. Very impressed with this area.

Kindle limited  Voir?

kindlel.jpg

I have to say that the new Kindle Unlimited service from Amazon appears to be a huge mis-step. For a start, the price means that you would have to be an avid reader to get value out of the service, but even then not all of the Kindle library is available.

For the vast majority, the advantage of Amazon is the low pricing of books and this means that many of us will pick up a new title based on price as well as author/subject. To remove that advantage doesn't make sense and likely lowers the potential customer base even more.

If I had to guess, I would expect less than 2% of the Kindle customer base to consider such a service and even that may be generous. What do you think?

Banning phones use in cars has zero effect on accident rates  Voir?

The researchers chose to look a relatively narrow window of time to reduce the number of other variables that might have an impact on accident rates, including the possible introduction of safer cars into the market, an economic recession that leads to a drop in overall driving, or other changes to state traffic laws.
They also corrected their data to account for precipitation, which can cause more accidents; gas prices, which can affect how many vehicles are on the road; and other unobservable factors that may have influenced accidents.
Once all these corrections had been made, the effect of banning handheld phone use at the wheel was found to be ... zero.
"Our results suggest that simply banning hand-held cellphone use may not produce the desired increase in traffic safety," comments Kaffine, bluntly... More at The Register.

So what. There are some rules that just make sense and all the stats in the world should not make a difference.

Wi-Fi micro SD Adapter review  Voir?

Brando sells the Wi-Fi micro SD Adapter for $28 which is a very good price when you consider the potential of this accessory. In effect, it adds Wi-Fi capability to your digital camera by simply using the SD card slot. This premise could not be more simple and it is a facility which, if it works well, will offer many benefits. I saw it, posted an article about it and asked for a review model just in case it turned out to be too good to be true.

To set it up, simply insert a micro-SD card into the Wi-Fi SD adaptor and then into your camera. Turn the camera on and you will see it displayed as a Wi-Fi location on your phone or tablet. You will need to download the WiFi@SDCF app from the iTunes app store or Google Play and you then need to go to your Wi-Fi settings and enter the password. Unfortunately the password is not printed on the box or on the website so I had to spend some time scouring the web for a solution. After some digging and guesswork, I came up with '99999999' which worked. 

Once you are connected to the card via Wi-Fi you will then need to enter the admin user name and password, which again are not on the packaging. Enter 'admin' and 'admin', and you will be fine, at which point you can change these login details in the app settings. I have fed back this problem and it will be addressed shortly, but once you are over those hurdles the rest of the experience is surprisingly effortless. 

wifisd2.jpg

You can browse the SD card in your camera using 'SD Browse' in the app which then shows you full-sized photos which you can save to the camera roll. You can also 'Shoot and View' in the app. Keep that menu option open and when a photo is taken it will appear on the iPhone or Android device. At no point does the card adaptor get in the way of taking photos and I found it surprisingly quick at communicating with my iPhone, and a LOT quicker than cameras I have tried in the past that supposedly have Wi-Fi built in.

The app offers just the features you will need and is very reliable. It is quick in operation and easy to understand once you have set it up, and the accessory is now a permanent addition to my Panasonic G3. I haven't had time to see if battery life is affected, but from what I can see the demand is negligible and should only be in use when connected to a phone or tablet, of which three can be connected at any one time.

sdcf.jpg

You will not see speeds that approach using a dedicated card reader, but you will not see such fast speeds on a Wi-Fi-enabled digital camera either. And this is why I like this accessory so much. Digital camera manufacturers have historically added Wi-Fi as a very expensive hardware feature and then created apps that are so shockingly bad as to make the system unusable. This simple, and very cheap, accessory offers the Wi-Fi connectivity you need and using an app that is actually well designed. It has proved to be reliable, quick and offers the Wi-Fi facility in my camera if I want to use it.

I see many accessories that offer a lot, but which fail to deliver on ambitious promises and I admit that I was sceptical about this one. My scepticism is, however, no more because the way it works, the price and most importantly the facility it adds to an object you likely already own is very impressive indeed. I have no idea how it works in such a small space, but it really does work and that is all that matters. I highly recommend this.

The UK mobile market is changing  Voir?

uknetwork.jpg
BT plans to construct miniature mobile networks in the buildings of its business users as it makes its return to the UK mobile market for the first time since selling O2 in 2001.
The UK incumbent said it will install networks in most customers' premises to deliver landline quality calls and services to mobile phones as part of its new One Phone service, a tariff for business users that it launched on Thursday. The tariff offers fixed line services hosted in the cloud and delivered to a mobile phone, meaning all phone calls are routed to the wireless device and employees can access their phone books and directories from the mobile phone.
Services are accessed via a BT SIM that automatically switches between the in-building mobile network and BT's public network, which is supplied through a wholesale network agreement with UK operator EE that includes access to the latter's UK LTE network. One Phone subscribers also gain access to BT's UK network of 5 million Wi-Fi hotspots... More at FierceWireless.
