LG’s X Screen Smartphone with a Secondary Display Launched at Rs 12,990

Announced originally at this year’s Mobile World Congress, LG has finally launched the X Screen handset in India at a relatively impressive price tag of Rs 12,990. The main highlight here remains the 1.76-inch always-on secondary display present on the top that constantly shows notifications, custom texts, battery status and more. However, apart from that, the phone itself is comparatively quite underpowered given the current market standards.


To begin with, the X Screen flaunts a 4.9-inch HD IPS panel along with that secondary screen. It runs on Qualcomm’s age old Snapdragon 410 Quad-Core processor clocked at 1.2Ghz, Adreno 306 GPU for graphics, 2GB of RAM, 2300mAh mediocre battery and 16GB internal storage which can be expandable up to 2TB via a MicroSD card. Moreover, there’s a 13MP rear lens with a LED flash and an 8MP front shooter. The phone is fairly light weighing at merely 120 grams and comes packed with 4G LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, and WiFi 802.11 b/g/n. On the software front, there’s LG’s custom skin running on top of Android Marshmallow. Moreover, LG claims the glass fiber back is much less fragile than general glass back panels.

The secondary display will appeal on first glance, although, with a tiny battery pack and an average spec sheet, success of this device looks uncertain. LG has been constantly trying to maintain the wow factor in this fast paced market but customers are still opting for alternatives, even their G5 that flaunts a modular design failed to match expectations. The X Screen will be available in black, white and pink gold color variants starting from midnight of July 20th at a price of Rs 12,990.


Commenting further on the launch, Mr. Amit Gujral, Marketing Head – Mobiles, LG India stated, “LG has always strived hard to provide great value to its customers and with X Screen we have done that yet again. LG is proud to bring the innovation of the second screen in its X Screen smartphone in India. This smartphone offers premium features at an affordable price point and we are sure that the Indian consumers will truly find value in it.

How to Get SMS Alerts for Gmail via Twitter

How do you get SMS notifications on your mobile phone for important emails in your Gmail? Google doesn’t support text notifications for their email service but Twitter does. If we can figure out a way to connect our Twitter and Gmail accounts, the Gmail notifications can arrive as text on our mobile via Twitter. Let me explain:Twitter allows you to follow any @user via a simple SMS. They provide short codes for all countries (see list) and if you text FOLLOW to this shortcode following by the  username, any tweets from that user will arrive in your phone as text notifications. For instance, if you are in the US, you can tweet FOLLOW labnol to 40404 to get my tweets as text messages. Similarly, users in India can text FOLLOW labnol to 9248948837 to get the tweets via SMS.The short code service of Twitter can act as a Gmail SMS notifier. You create a new Twitter account, set the privacy to private and this account will send a tweet when you get a new email in Gmail. Follow this account …

Instagram Story links get 15-25% swipe-through rates for brands, publishers

Instagram may arrived late as a traffic source for brands and publishers, but it’s already showing early signs of success, driving new visitors to their sites and even outperforming its parent company, Facebook.For years brands, publishers and other have tried to push people from the Facebook-owned photo-and-video-sharing app to their sites. Outside of ads and excepting a recent test with some retailers, Instagram didn’t offer much help to companies looking to use it to drive traffic. So they had to find workarounds. They put links in their Instagram bios. They scrawled short-code URLs onto their pictures. And they typed out links in their captions.Then last month Instagram finally introduced an official alternative to these hacky workarounds: the ability for verified profiles to insert links in their Instagram Stories.Almost a month after the launch, 15% to 25% of the people who see a link in an Instagram Story are swiping on it, according to a handful of brands and publishers that h…
