LG vows to bring G3’s user experience to midrange devices


LG has announced plans to bring its latest user experience from the flagship G3 to entry-level and midrange LG devices, allowing users to gain access to its latest software without having to spend more on high-end specifications. The new interface will begin appearing on a range of phones and tablets during the second half of this year.

LG was often criticized for its Android software prior to launching a more polished interface with the G3 earlier this year. It was clunky and inconsistent, and compared to other interfaces it looked very messy and outdated in places. But that’s all changed.

LG’s new UX is cleaner, more modern, and packed full of useful new features, including the Smart Keyboard, which promises to reduce typing errors by as much as 75%. It also delivers some nifty camera tricks, such as Touch & Shoot for snapping images in a instant, Gesture Shot for simpler selfies, and Clean View, which removes all icons and buttons from the viewfinder to provide you with a clearer look at your subject before you take your picture.

“With the basic principles of the G3’s UX features rooted in making complex technologies simple and convenient, our goal was to provide consumers with a user experience they genuinely need and want,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.

“Standardizing these features across our entry- and mid-tier mobile products is just a natural extension of our desire to make every LG device feel premium and unique.”

LG hasn’t confirmed which devices will get the G3’s UX yet, but we do know it won’t be coming to old hardware.
