Coming to the design of the phone the LG G3 was possibly the best-looking smartphone available in the market when it released. The phone is slick and curved that makes it feel much smaller than it actually is when you hold it. A quick glance at the phone might have you wondering if the phone has an all-metal body but upon touch, you’ll realize that its fine plastic designed to look like metal.LG has managed to reduce the side bezels down to just a few millimeters, but the unusually small forehead and chin stand out even more. On the top of the screen you’ll find the earpiece the front camera and a few sensors and on the bottom of the screen is a very small version of the companies logo along with a pattern of concentric rings on the chin similar to the ones found on Asus’ Zenfone series.On the top edge of the phone, you will find an infrared LED for the remote control feature, and a mic for noise suppression. The headset jack, Micro-USB port, and primary microphone can be found on the bottom of the phone. With LG’s decision to move all the phones buttons to the back the two sides of the phone are left completely blank.On the back you will find the power button lodged between the volume up and down button along with the primary camera, flash, infrared focus assists LED, and speaker grille. Unlike most other high-end devices, the rear panel of the device is removable and so is the battery.Swapping micro sd cards is quite convenient but to change sim cards you’d have to remove the phones batter first as the sim card slot lies beneath the battery.
As far as specifications go the phone happened to be one of best flagships back when it released. Inside the phone, you will find a 2.46GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor along with 2GB of RAM. The phone packs 8GB (16GB and 32GB models available)of internal storage but that won’t be a problem as that can be expanded up to 128GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the LG G3 packs a 13-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 2.1-megapixel secondary camera on the front for selfies. Out of the box, the phone runs Android 4.4.2 and is powered by a 3000mAh removable battery. The phone has a single micro sim slot and other connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, NFC, Infrared, FM, along with 3G and 4G.The phone also features a Compass Magnetometer, a Proximity sensor, an Accelerometer, an Ambient light sensor and a Gyroscope.
Camera and battery
When coming to camera quality and battery life the phone offers the best it can compare to other phones in its price range. Of course, the G3 might not have the best camera in the smartphone market but thanks to optical image stabilization, the phone’s shots tend to come out crisp and clean. With only a ƒ/2.4 aperture, low light images might leave you disappointed but with optimal lighting conditions, the phone can click excellent photos. The battery on the device is 300mAh and although isn’t the best when compared to other phones it can definitely give you a days backup based on how it’s being used.
When talking about features this phone has all the fancy features you’d find on most flagship phones in the market but apart from that the company decided to up their competition and decided to add a few other features that happen to be less common on most other smartphones. Back when LG launched the G3 it was the only smartphone that was on the top of the list which featured a built-in FM radio tuner but apart from the radio tuner the phone also housed an infrared blaster which helped its users control their home theater’s and TV’s and other devices that used a remote without actually picking up the remote. Of course now with fingerprint technology and waterproof standards features like that have not gone far. Although something like a radio tuner and IR blaster might not seem like much now, back when the phone launched it attracted a lot of buyers.
The LG G3 might not be the perfect phone for someone who is looking for something that is at the top of the market and will cost them a fortune, but it is an excellent choice for someone who is looking for a decent smartphone that comes with a decent price. The LG G3 is worth every penny you spend on it and is guaranteed to get you through your day with ease. The phone comes with various memory size options and colors to choose from and some models also include wireless charging. Apart from the oddly placed buttons, the main reason one should choose this phone is that of its Fantastic QHD screen, its good looks, excellent performance, and decent battery life.
