Here’s a review of the LG G3, one of the most anticipated phones of 2014. We are going to take a closer look.
This is a really good looking phone and even those made a plastic at the finish of the back, it is pretty nice and it feels nice in hand. It’s actually a little bit lighter than the G2. LG of course kept it back buttons from the G2 and actually improved a bit, the buttons are a bit more clicky, but there’s no LED notification on the back anymore.
On the front now it’s that display, it has a 5.5 inch 2560 X 1440 display which gives a pixel density sort of 530 pixels per inch. In other words this is an insanely sharp display and it’s surrounded by tiny bezels and a very small chin so really the phone doesn’t feel that big at all.
When you hold it up next to another phone 5.5 inch phone the 1+ One for example, the G3 feels pretty compact compared to this phone.
There are some other nice improvements to the hardware including a 3000 mAh removable battery behinds the back plastic door and a micro SD card slot for people who value removable storage. It has a slightly new camera, a 13 MP camera with a few interesting improvements, optical image stabilization, a dual tone flash now, 4K video recording, 720 P slow-motion video recording 120 frames a second, and a new laser autofocus system. Actually fires lasers and uses the reflection to sense and determine how far away the subject is than superfast focuses there and takes a picture. Let’s you take pictures by pressing one of the back volume buttons.
The specs of the LG G3 are top notch. Features a Snapdragon 801 quad-core chip, 3 GB of RAM. This is all packaged in a really handsome body. It runs really smooth the newest Android versions without any glitches. Everything from multitasking to opening and closing apps seems fine. At a normal speed animation seem pretty fluid. I noticed that after using it for a while wouldn’t let me increase the display’s brightness anymore over a certain amount
More about the display.
New let’s get back to this awesome display. There were a lot of people talking about LG making a display like this and whether or not they would actually put it in a smartphone. The hardware is really ahead of the content and even LG software is barely caught up. It has super high resolution wallpapers of course they made them look you know they have lots of dots and stars and It look really impressive of course. All of the stock app icons of this LG, is super high resolution but any other Android app like a game or a YouTube video or whatever it is still runs 1080 P.
Turn this out this could be one of those really influential Android devices. I will left the LG G3 off the list for one of the best 2014 smartphones, but it’s clearly one of the best phones for 2014 especially because of the display.
