With smartphone ownerships levels near saturation point in Western markets, manufacturers and network operators are busy looking for new ways to entice customers, while at the same time extending their presence into emerging markets.

Meanwhile, marketing and advertising agencies around the world are experimenting with increasingly audacious schemes in a bid to get their products and ads in front of consumers in a highly competitive landscape.

Many believe we could be heading towards a revolution in smartphone provision, with technology and marketing converging to the point where your future smartphone could cost you absolutely nothing.

The Best LG G4 Accessories

The LG G4 is the Korean giant’s latest attempt at a top smartphone, which packs a stunning display, cracking camera and plenty of power.

 

The design is certainly alternative compared to the variety of black rectangles on the market, as you can have it in plastic or leather – plus the power and volume buttons are on the back. In short, the G4 takes many aspects we loved about the G3, and brings them bang up to date.
