We are pretty close to publishing our full and detailed review of the LG G3, but before we do that, we want to share with you the retail experience you can expect from the device when it comes to market with an unboxing plus quick hands on video. Watch Mobile Geeks unbox and introduce you to the latest and greatest from LG, the LG G3:
The LG G3 is one of a new breed of phones that reach beyond the 5 inch form factor that we recognize as the current screen-size standard for high-end, flagship smartphones. The LG G3 is in fact a high-end, flagship device that sports a very attractive 1440p resolution, 5.5″ inch display. The G3 joins others on the market such the OnePlus One, marketed as larger flagship smartphone. We actually see this as part of a general trend towards larger screens.
As you can see in the video above, the retail package of the LG G3 is typical of most smartphones we are seeing today, with fairly minimal accessories included in the handset’s box. Along-side the actual phone itself, LG is also giving you an easy-setup guide with warranty info, a 3,000mAh battery (delivered separate from the device which makes sense), a standard USB travel adapter, USB 2.0 cable (no USB 3.0 on this device unfortunately) plus a pair of QuadBeat 2 headphones which LG say will offer an enhanced audio experience.
The display on the LG G3 certainly impresses, its 1440 x 2560 resolution IPS LCD touchscreen packs an amazing pixel density of 534 pixels-per-inch. Only the Oppo Find 7 has this size resolution, although we expect to see more devices with 1440p screens arrive later this year. But there are other cool aspects of the G3 which are also pretty interesting. In terms of performance you will be happy to see the G3 is loaded with a Snapdragon 801 from Qualcomm – arguably the best performing mobile processor on the market – and it’s also paired with a generous 3GB of RAM on the 64GB version. A smaller and more affordable 16GB version will also available featuring 2GB of RAM. Other key features include a 13MP camera which features Laser Auto Focus, plus LG’s Rear Key which places power and volume navigation buttons on the back of the device.
We have already taken a look at the 13MP camera comparing it to the Sony Xperia Z2 and the Samsung Galaxy S5. Check out Nicole’s video:
The LG G3 has been available in South Korea for a short while already, but will be launched globally at the end of this week. Stay tuned for our full review.
