As we may have observed, both Apple and Samsung are currently dominating the market share for smart phones or mobile phones in general, but I think that's because the two were practically heavily hyped up. Now, I don't want to be blinded by the two, so when I was asked to attend this LG event to know more about their phones (especially the newest among the line which is the LSeries III), I decided to give it a go.

Before we delve into the specs and prices of the newest phones, let me just briefly share with you what transpired during the product launch held in the Trinoma Activity Center.

Exhibition and Somewhat Crazy Stunts
When I reached the venue, I was curious as to why there were a lot of people looking at the event center when the official program hadn't even started yet. Then, I adjusted my gaze towards the one they were looking, and I said "Ohh, that's why!".

  • 5.0" IPS Display
  • 1.2GHz Dual Core
  • Android Kitkat 4.4

How Does the LG  Knock Code Work?
I got curious how this new Knock Code Lock System works, so I asked one of the gals there, and she showed me how. Fortunately, I was able to record it. Check it out:

What I like about the knock code (versus the pattern lock) is that it doesn't leave a prominent smudge that can be analyzed for unauthorized access of your phone. Hence, I found it really intuitive and smart. Plus, according to the LG crew, there are 80,000 possible combinations of knock code, so it's very hard to break as well.

The New Ambassadors of LG Phones
The Latest LSeries III also has its newest brand ambassadors namely Andre Paras (of UP Fighting Maroons), Kiefer Ravena (of Ateneo Blue Eagles), Thomas Torres (of DLSU Green Archers) and Maxene Magalona.

Some notes from the blogger:
Although in terms of the specs and some features, LG's LSeries III phones may fall somewhat short. However, for the very affordable prices of each phone, I think it's already a decent or potentially a good buy!
