The newest LG flagship phone, the LG G3 is the phone we’ve all been waiting to get our hands on for the past few months. After taking a look, this phone might be one of the best--if not the best--smartphone on the market. I’m going to give you my take on the soon to be released LG G3.
Let's begin with the display. The LG G3 sports the highest resolution display ever available in a smartphone. Its generous 5.5 inch 1440x2560 display offers a pixel density of 534 pixels per inch! I cannot wait to get my hands on this device and appreciate some of the smoothest curves and sharpest lines ever seen on a handheld device. If you’re a media lover or a touchscreen aficionado, this phone just might be the one for you. While covering the display I have to mention LG’s user interface layered over the Android 4.4 Kitkat operating system. The design is clean and I think it offers much improvement over the previous LG G2 user interface.
The LG G3 is offered in two versions: 16GB of internal memory with 2GB of RAM or 32GB of internal memory with 3GB of RAM. Both versions have a microSD card slot that can support up to 128 GB of additional memory. Under the hood of this souped up smartphone, the LG G3 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor and an Adreno 330 graphics processor. This is a powerful device.
On the back of the phone you will find the camera in its usual location, but you will also see two creatively placed buttons below the camera that function as an on/off button and volume rocker. These buttons are the only ones on the LG G3 which free up a lot of space on the front for screen space and on the sides for room and a sleek bezel-free look. The rear location of the power and volume buttons also proves to be very ergonomic on a large phone like the LG G3, making it easier to reach each button. With no front facing buttons, LG has incorporated a double tap feature to wake the phone which I think is an interesting function and could be very useful.
With a screen as large and pixel dense as the LG G3, the biggest thing everyone is worrying about is the battery life. LG has put a 3000 mAh battery into the LG G3 to try and get this powerful phone through the day-- we’ll have to wait and see if it will be able to perform.
One of the most unique features of this phone works with the G3’s 13MP camera in order to provide incredibly fast focusing times. The LG G3 sports a laser autofocus feature that allows the phone to emit and receive lasers in order to determine the distance of a given object in order to adequately, and quickly focus. This feature is suppose to allow for some incredibly fast autofocusing times and I can’t wait to try it out for myself soon. On top of taking stunning photos, the LG G3 is capable of shooting video at both 1080p and 4k resolutions. I will provide some sample videos when I get ahold of the G3. For all of the selfie lovers out there, this phone also offers a 2.1MP front facing camera that shoots video up to 1080p at 30fps.
Everything taken into account, I am absolutely excited to get ahold of the LG G3 and see how it performs, and how it will stack up to the stiff competition that the HTC One (M8) and the Samsung Galaxy S5 are offering. Stay tuned to my upcoming videos and blogs to learn more about the LG G3 and other new smartphones on the market.
