Design Somehow, every Android maker’s UI design team got the same memo – keeping it flat. The same goes for LG’s Optimus UI, which adopts a minimalist design that focuses on a wireframe style. Transitions between menus and pages have also received a revamp, with an emphasis on a smooth flow rather than a quick snap.
Smart Notice Think of this as LG’s take on Google Now. Unlike Apple’s Siri or Samsung’s S Voice, Smart Notice throws up timely reminders in the form of cards. This includes traffic notifications to avoid those nasty jams. Most importantly, it has a card that nags you to switch on your battery saver mode when the phone’s running low on juice.
Qslide Apps that pop up as floating windows, just what the doctor ordered for the busy individual. LG’s implementation of the QSlide feature adds a few more nifty little features. One of which is the ability to make the pop-up app turn opaque, giving you a full view of your home page. Just goes to show how a little thought in the design can go a long way in terms of usability.
Knock Code Fingerprint scanning? You’ll spend more time swiping or placing the finger right to unlock the phone. Drawing a pattern? Fingerprint smudges will give the game away. Knock Code has none of these issues. Set as many knocks as you want across the screen. Sure, fingerprints will be there, but it’ll take forever to crack the code.
Customisable Home Touch Buttons LG’s Android customisation goes deeper. While most Android phones have back, home and recent apps as the touch buttons (not in that particular order), the Optimus UI allows you to realign the buttons based on your preference. What’s more, you can have up to five touch buttons, adding quick access to notifications, QuickMemo, QSlide or dual window to the front.
