From entry-level to premium, LG has been working to provide a consistent user experience (UX) across its entire mobile product lineup. Toward that end,the company will begin standardizing its proprietary UX features, first introduced in the new LG G3, across most of the company’s mid- to entry-level smartphones and tablets launched in the second half of this year.
A simplified camera displaying only the most frequently used menus is one of the UX features that will be standardized across mid- and entry-level LG smartphones. One of the key camera features is Touch & Shoot, which helps capture special moments quickly by letting users tap anywhere on the display to focus and trigger the shutter in one single step, eliminating a two-step process. Gesture Shot makes taking selfies simple. Opening and closing one’s hand in front of the lens starts a three-second countdown before triggering the shutter for blur-free selfies. Clean View offers a full, clutter-free preview interface by removing all camera menu icons from the screen.
Another UX feature to be standardized is Smart Keyboard, which reduces input error by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively "knowing" what words the user intended to type. The keyboard can be re-sized to better fit the user’s hands and thumbs. Suggested words, which appear above the keyboard, can be entered with just an upward flick of the thumb. Individual keys can be customized with frequently used symbols for even faster input. Long-pressing the space bar and sliding the thumb or finger left and right repositions the cursor for faster editing.
