LG G3 UX to arrive on more LG Smartphones and Tablets

Those of you who are fans of LG’s G3 user experience (UX) will be pleased to hear that the company announced today that it will start to use the same features across it’s range of mid-to-entry level smartphones and tablets which are due for release later this year.

LG said in a press release that due to positive feedback from both customers and reviewers, the company decided that it would make sense to put the UX to use across their entire mobile device range.

“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. “Standardising 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.”

Despite the announcement, some features are unlikely to make it to some of the real low-end devices, due to them being hardware dependent, though popular ones such as the new LG camera interface and the Smart Keyboard will.

You can expect devices using the new UX to be released later this year. You can read more about the LG G3 smartphone in our hands-on experience.

You'd think they would be concentrating on Android L, and bringing THAT experience to new LG devices.

It's not even 4.4.4

Android L LG G3?

Also what's wrong with that case? I understand what Samsung did with that cse that had a transparent window and what HTC dit with the dot view one. Is this some kind of maritime themed case?

Also i sort of prefer LG's interface to Samsung's Touchwiz.

Android L is still just a developer preview is it not? if so there's not much they can do with it as of yet

I'd hope they would be testing it in house. If they are waiting for the final release, then testing, we won't be seeing L on LG devices for ages!

when you think joe public runs android l preview on their phones, you'd like to think the manufacturers are as well.

Who say's they're not already testing it? Building a custom ROM from an AOSP base takes considerable time and effort you know. It's likely they have at least evaluated it by now, but you shouldn't expect them to announce anything while the software their custom rom would be based on is still in beta. That just wouldn't make any sense.

As others have said Android L hasn't even been released yet, why would anybody here have any clue when LG would release their own variant of an unreleased product?

i want this on my G2 the new UX stuff ass it can support it fine it has tyhe hardware and also hope i get andriod L on this device when it is out and that VZ will allow it to be OTA quickly and not 6 to 8 months later
