LG’s recently announced flagship Android handset has monster specs, including a 5.5-inch 2K display that has no rival – at least when it comes to flagship handsets from leading Android manufacturers – but that doesn’t mean the device won’t offer amazing battery life. In Phone Arena’s G3 battery life tests, the handset came on top of the competition, beating every top Android handset released this year, including the Galaxy S5. More →
Although we haven’t yet used the LG G3 extensively enough to write a full review, the look of the phone alone is terrific and a huge improvement over the LG G2 in just about every way. Speaking with Trusted Reviews, LG design executive Chul Bae Lee revealed that he’d originally pushed to make the G3 even better looking by making its side bezels even slimmer than they are right now.

Just five days after the G3’s May 28th release in South Korea, LG had already sold 100,000 units, the fastest opening week sales of any smartphone is LG’s history.

As a point of reference, the G2 was estimated to have sold less than 10,000 units per day when it launched last year. More →
We still have a bit of a wait before LG’s new flagship G3 smartphone launches in the United States, but consumers in LG’s home market of South Korea already have access to the company’s latest and greatest. Announced just last week, the G3 is the first mass-market smartphone to feature a quad HD display that packs twice as many pixels as the full HD 1080p screens on devices like the Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8). The G3 has plenty more to offer smartphone buyers as well, and it looks like LG’s new flagship phone is flying off the shelves so far. More →
The recently announced LG G3 is one of the most impressive Android smartphones we’ve ever seen, even though a majority of the specifications had already leaked prior to the official reveal. Most of those leaks turned out to be spot on, but one detail in particular was sadly inaccurate — the LG G3 features a plastic body instead of a metal one. More →
LG last week unveiled its 2014 Android flagship phone, the G3, which is now ready to give the Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) a serious run for their money. At the same time, however, LG didn’t reveal many details about the phone’s international launch schedule or pricing. The phone is already available in South Korea, and will launch in the U.S. in the coming months, according to local operators, while Europe may get it in early July. More →
It wasn’t exactly a surprise since specs and details surrounding LG’s new flagship smartphone have been leaking for months, but the company finally unveiled its new G3 handset on Tuesday. We took an early look at the phone in our hands-on LG G3 preview, and we found that LG’s new flagship phone outshines its predecessor in just about every way.
LG certainly has an uphill climb if it hopes to compete with top rival Samsung, but thanks to cutting-edge technology and a few innovative features, there are also several areas where the G3 doesn’t just top the G2, it outshines Samsung’s market-leading Galaxy S5 as well.
