At first sight the LG G3 seems like it would be a gamer’s dream. That latest generation Qualcomm processor and ample RAM should go amazing with that stunning 5.5-inch display. We may want to dig in deeper to find the truth, though. After all, such a high definition display may also slow things down.
We decided to give the LG G3 a gaming test to see just how well it fares against the competition. Gladly, we walked away more surprised than disappointed. The device handled every single game like a champion! After putting all the graphics and settings to the maximum, we expected at least the ocasional stutter.
It seems the hardware and software are more than enough to handle high-end gaming on that QHD (2560x1440p) display. We tested the LG G3 with the following games.
LG G3 game test titles
- Asphalt 8: Airborne
- Need for Speed: Most Wanted
- ShadowGun: Deadzone
- Dead Trigger 2
- Grand Theft Auto 3
- Riptide GP2
- GT Racing 2
- Temple Run 2
Even though the LG G3 handled all these games like a boss, there were some downsides. The smartphone got very hot after about an hour of playing all these games. This is to be expected, though. In terms of battery, the LG G3 is also looking like a winner. Only about 15%-20% of the battery was depleted after we went through all the tests. This is not bad at all!
We will have a full review ready for you soon. You can learn more about the LG G3 by checking out the rest of our coverage, though. We have a hands-on post, as well as a comparison between the 2 GB and 3GB (RAM) versions.
