Camera or software?

A camera has to be good for software to make it excellent. Therefore it is worth making a LG G3 run a ROM based on the G4 on Android 5.1. That way what was good before is now excellent.

Just goes to show the quality of the G3 camera with G4 software.

LG3 converted to be a LG G4

I converted the G3 rom to a G4 ROM using Lion 5.1 after root and wipe. It is an amazing transformation.

BlackBerry and Android

Speculation is running high as BlackBerry is supposedly launching a phone based on Android.

As OEM manufacturers put their own skins on top of Android we may see a BlackBerry skin being made to go over Android.

It would be an interesting partnership. Watch this space.

LTE advanced

I asked O2 to tell me whether the change in signal was an upgrade. They said that LTE was the advanced range which is the real 4G. 4G that was was really a LTE lower range which was really 3.5G. Not 4G. I was told that my mobile was upgraded OTA of its reception of LTE-A.

Showing LTE not 4G

Dear all
On my S6 is showing LTE not 4G. Maybe O2 has upgraded its 4G network.

Galaxy S5 lollipop disaster fix

I have been scanning the forums regarding the S5 Android 5.0 update disaster. Here is a fix.

1. Download S5 firmware from www.sammobile.com for Android 4.4.2.
2. The zip file includes Odin flash program.
3. Put the phone into download mode. Volume button below;home and power button.
4. Fire up Odin
5. Look for the md5 file in the package.
6. Put the md5 file in the AP field.
7. After checking start the flash.
8. After flashing take USB cable out of the phone and wait for reboot.

I hope that this resolves your issues. It may be an idea to enter recovery and delete cache partition and delete data. This way it is wiping everything.

Flashback: flagship LG 2014 of G3

LG has already launched the G4 but does the G3 stand up by being upstaged by its successor? Keep tuned to our new flashback review by access to our review unit. Just to say for my view it's a trip down memory lane to times where email and networking was what the G3 is remembered for me personally. Keep tuned to this space.
