I have been excited about LG's G3 smartphone since the first rumors surfaced, but here I am, writing a review of LG's latest flagship, which has some serious specs behind it. The G3 smartphone is LG's biggest launch yet, with the South Korean company putting some serious weight behind it.
At the time of writing, it was only available in select parts of Asia, but the global launch happens next week (now as of publishing time), which is when consumers can get their hands-on one of the best Android-based smartphones in the world right now.
LG has provided the G3 with some key technologies and specifications, which have it leading the pack, even against the likes of Samsung and its Galaxy S5, or Apple with its ageing iPhone 5S smartphone. The new LG G3 smartphone is a true work of art, with current rumors suggesting that the upcoming Nexus 6 will be based off it – something I truly hope happens.
We have a mouthful of specifications on the G3, but let's start with the star of the show: the absolutely gorgeous and eye-popping 5.5-inch 2560x1440 display. The G3 smartphone is the first smartphone in the world with a Quad HD display, and once you get the first look at it, you'll be hooked. It's truly gorgeous with beautiful deep colors and clarity that I simply haven't seen on another smartphone to date.
We have Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 SoC, providing us with a 2.5GHz quad-core processor that will more than handle anything you throw at it. There are two versions available, 16GB and 32GB, which come with varying amounts of RAM. The 16GB version of the G3 comes with 2GB of RAM, while the 32GB version comes packing 3GB of RAM. We have the 32GB version with us today.
When it comes to the camera, we have a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with laser autofocus, optical image stabilization and dual-LED flash. Up front, we have a 2.1-megapixel selfie-shooter, which is capable of shooting 1080p at 30FPS.
We have 4G LTE capabilities, Gorilla Glass 3 protecting the front of the G3, microSD card expansion (right up to 128GB), and a removable 3,000mAh battery.
We also have SlimPort support, which utilizes the microUSB port for some great connectivity. You can plug in a SlimPort adapter and easily have your G3 hooked up to your TV for some big screen gaming, or showing off those high-res videos you just shot in great detail on the rear-facing snapper.
