LG G3 Screen

LG tonight took the wraps off LG G3 Screen (as previously expected), marking the first smartphone to be powered by LG's own processor.

The NUCLUN is an 8-core ARM-based big.LITTLE processor pushing four Cortex-A15 processors at 1.5GHa and (that's the high-power, lowercase "big") and four Cortex-A7 processors at 1.2 GHz (that's the low-power, uppercase LITTLE — get it?) that also supports LTE-A for max theoretical download speeds of 225 Mbps.

The Screen's design is in line with the LG G3, only bigger, with this new processor, and a lower-resolution display. It's running Android 4.4.4 KitKat.

The Verizon Xperia Z3v review!

0
Verizon Sony Xperia Z3v

Most of us here in the U.S. have had to look at our European neighbors in envy when it comes to high-end Sony devices. For whatever reason, the Japanese company just hasn't seemed to break in to the U.S. market. That ends today, with the availability of the Xperia Z3 on Verizon.

Actually, it's the Z3v were talking about here today. We've already reviewed the proper Z3 and Z3 Compact, and it turns out that little difference in the name denotes quite a big difference in look and feel. We're only a half-year beyond the Xperia Z2, and the Z3v strangely sort of finds itself stuck between the last generation and this newer update.

So is the phone in No Man's Land? Or is it worth your time and money? Late's take a look in this, our Verizon Sony Xperia Z3v review.
