LG has just announced its new flagship smartphone, the 5.5-inch LG G4 with leather back and it is set to give tough competition to Samsung’s latest flagship Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge.
Now, Samsung has partnered with Microsoft to bring Microsoft services and apps to its Android phones Galaxy S6 and S6 edge which also includes OneDrive among others. Since Google’s partners have to include the entire suit of Google apps in their phones, Google’s Drive got competition from OneDrive in these Samsung phones from the word go.
The Samsung-Microsoft deal also includes 100GB of extra free cloud storage space to Galaxy S6 and S6 edge users on OneDrive for a period of 2 years, which takes the total free storage space to 115GB. Not to lag behind, Google has partnered with LG to provide the exact same 115GB free storage space on Google Drive on it’s recently announced LG G4 smartphone.
Google already gives Android users 15GB of storage on Google Drive and now LG G4 owners are going to get additional 100GB making it 115GB of free storage space. This was announced when LG’s officials were giving details about the new flagship.
Companies making Android phones are greatly dependent on Google for the Android OS and have to be a part of all partnership programs which Google wants. It is no secret that Samsung wants more control over its Android smartphones than what Google is prepared to give. Perhaps its deal with Microsoft is sort of a rebellion against Google’s authority. Not to be left behind, Google has taken the opportunity offered by LG to advance its agenda too.
