As the story goes, every major Android smartphone manufacturer has their own user interface on top of Google's operating system to separate themselves from the pack. And with every big smartphone release, the UI is evolved further — features are added and visuals get a facelift. After all, we can't have software looks staying the same, while hardware design evolves further.As expected, the LG G6's interface looks different than the one on its predecessor. Partly to make use of the new 2:1-ratio display, partly to make the visuals more streamlined with the looks of the actual phone, and, of course, partly to add some extra pizzazz to the mix.“But how different is it?” you might ask. Well, we took the G5 along for our hands-on with the new G6 and made some screenshots of the main screens and apps you are bound to use on a daily basis. Check out the gallery below for a side-by-side and our comments on what you're looking at.

You've probably heard the news: LG has a brand new flagship smartphone. It is called the LG G3 and it brings along a plethora of minor and major hardware improvements over its predecessor, including a screen with a jaw-dropping resolution, a super-fast SoC, and an improved main camera. But that's not all – LG's latest high-end ships with a fresh, new user interface. Gone is the sparkly, cartoonish UI that the LG G2 came with. In its place we find an experience that's a lot more toned down, more consistent, and more mature. How do the old and the new LG interfaces look side by side, however? What's so new about the latter anyway? Well, to help answer these questions, we've put together a brief visual comparison between the two. As you can see, the G3's UI has been polished well. Clutter has been minimized, and the flat overall look brings a welcome modern feel. Many of the boxy icons have been replaced with circular ones, drawing inspiration from the company's … [Read more...] about LG G3 vs LG G2 user interfaces compared: what has changed?

In its current state, Google Hangouts is far from being one of the more appreciated Android apps from Google. Despite this, however, it looks like the company is about to address (at least) some of the issues that users pointed out to. While the update has yet to be officially announced by Google, the fellows over at Android Police managed to get their hands on the pre-launch version, and the screenshots reveal that we're in for a significant revamp of the user interface. According to the leak, Google Hangouts 4.0 will replace the three-column layout with a single-column layout that's a bit smarter and makes better use of the space available. The home screen will basically show a list of the recent conversations, while a floating action button allows the user to engage in a conversation or video call with a contact or a group of contacts.
