LG G3 QHD Phone Overviews & Specs

LG G3 overview
In 2013, LG did a great job with its flagship the g2. The G2 was the first phone to have no buttons on the sides, but have its main buttons on the back of the phone. People have had mixed reactions about it. But the idea was good, having buttons on the back of the phone increases the comfort in reaching to the buttons because phones these days are becoming bigger and bigger but our hands remain just the same. It might be a strange change, but it probably is a good one. The G2, the G Pro 2 and the G Flex, all have back buttons and after a while once you start using back buttons you can’t go back due to the ease in its use. LG’s next flagship, the G3 has updated and upgraded these buttons and is one of the best phone’s we’ve seen so far Specs wise the G3 is a terminator smartphone. It rocks a 5.5″ QHD(2560×1440) display, which is fit in a shell that is a little smaller than the galaxy S5′s. It is run by a Snapdragon 801 processor, has 2GB or 3GB ram depending on the storage option, a 13MP camera with new OIS+ technology (optical image stabilisation+) , a camera for selfies on the front, a massive 3000mAh battery give you hours of usage.


The QHD display makes you want to keep staring at it. With a pixel density of 538 PPI, it stands with its head held high above the rest. Android apps aren’t optimised for 2K displays just yet but when they’re gonna get updated they are gonna look gorgeous. For now, looking at pictures and videos gives us satisfaction and pleasure. You won’t be able to see much difference when compared to a 1080p display but when a 1080p and a 2k display phone are put next to each other, y’all can definitely make out which is the better looking display.


The LG G3 runs on Android 4.4.2 with LG’s skin on it. LG’s buzzword for the G3 is Simple, and thats what it’s software really is, Simple yet impressive. And the default launcher is something that is optimised for the 2K display the phone holds. The default apps are designed with a lot of simplicity. LG , like Samsung and HTC added something called “Smart Notice” , which suggests you stuff like calling a specific contact that the phone thinks you call often or if you missed a call it’ll suggest you to call the person back. LG has also added other bloatware like health apps. Knock code is still present if you’re into that kind of a thing. LG is improving it’s customisation level on the G3. The new keyboard’s height can be adjusted to suit the user’s needs.


The camera software is really simple too, launch the camera, point it at the subject , tap the screen and you’re done! Picture taken. The camera UI is very simple. There are tons of options in the settings but the basic UI is very minimal. The number of shooting modes has been reduced from 14 to just 4. The main selling point of this camera is the new IR laser sensor used for focusing. This technology was initially used by some robot vacuum cleaners to make sure they don’t bang into walls. The laser system can focus in just 220ms which blows away it’s competition. The SGS5 And the HTC One M8 take a minimum of 300ms. The difference may seem really small but it makes a lot of difference. The camera may seem good on paper, but how does it actually perform? From what we’ve seen it does pretty well in all sorts of lighting conditions. The images are crisp and neat. The front facing camera has larger than normal pixels which helps it excel in low lighting conditions. You can take great selfies for snapchat or anything else.


The G3 is a terminator. It crushes competition. It has an amazing camera, an amazing display and works smoother than butter. What more could you ask for? Even its benchmarks are great. The only flip side to it is that not everyone might like the placements of the buttons. This is just an overview of the LG G3, we’ll follow up with a full review once we get our hands on the device.
