LG G3 Review

The Smartphone market is witnessing interesting times with influx of refined high end models from phone manufacturing bigwigs. While Samsung and Apple are still at the top of the Smartphone market across the globe but only just. Other mobile manufacturing companies including LG are poised to score big especially with the launch of models like their high end flagship phone G3 launched in India last month. Launched at a price of Rs. 47,990 for the 16 GB variant, LG G3 is one of the high end phones available in the market today. Modeled on its earlier device the G2 which was not exactly a blockbuster hit, G3 seems to have been developed by the company keeping in mind the way consumers think while accepting or rejecting a high end Smartphone.

Mobile Has a versatile role for SMEs

India is the second largest and one of the fastest growing mobile markets in the world. On the global front, according to Microsoft Tag, of the 4 billion cell phones in the world, 1.08 billion are smart phones and more than 50 per cent of local searches are done on mobile devices.

Efficient Frontier estimates that 22 per cent of all searches in 2012 will be on mobile phones and it is predicted that in 2014 mobile Internet will overtake desktop usage.

The above data is a glimpse of what we can expect in the future. It is time SMEs look at Mobile not just as a communication tool, but as the revenue generator. Touted as the next generation of e-commerce, mobile commerce (m-commerce) enables users to access Internet without the need to find a place to plug in.
