LG hits back with a strong contender, a top end smartphone by the name of the LG G3, and seems to have left a strong impression. Now it’s all the time game, when LG launches this smartphone into the market. Let us have a look at the specs.
- Good Camera
- Admirable performance
- Decent Battery Life
- Split-screen functionality
- High pixel density
- Sunlight visibility is mediocre
- Not water proof or dust proof compared to competitors
The G3 has retained bits and parts of it’s predecessors design like the volume key right below the camera on the rear side of the device. For those used to the G2, this may feel much more premium and easy to use.
It has an glossy finish on the rear side. Overall this device is an mix of metal and plastic. It has an taper design varying from 2.7mm to 8.9 mm of thickness, trying to improvise the aesthetic device, making it easy to use. It also has a bit of curve on the back side. Coming to it’s weight, the LG G3 weighs 149gms which is pretty light.
The LG G3 runs on a Snapdragon 801 processor which clocks an amazing 2.5GHz and is coupled with 3gigs of RAM. Graphic end of this device is managed by the Adreno 330 chipset.
To help this device last as long as possible on a single charge the LG G3 is provided with a 3,000mAh battery pack. Due to low contrast ratios this device may seem to out perform rivals when it comes to battery life.
13.1 MP rear facing camera which has Optical Image Stabilization. A 2.1 MP front facing camera. The Camera takes less time to focus compared to the competitors. Low light imaging is not out standing but is decent enough, another plus point to this device is that you can record 2160p videos at 30 frames per second.
This is what may topple it’s competitors and make them feel inferior to this device. The G3 has an 5.5 inch LCD IPS display which has nothing unusual, but the one thing that has turned heads to this device is the 543ppi density display. This 5.5 inch display supports 2560 x 1440 resolution
But a major let down maybe its contract ratio which has made it’s sunlight visibility extreme low. On the other hand, it displays crisp and vivid images with great viewing angles.
By end of July one should expect this device to be available in India. This may be a slow start by LG as majority of it’s competitors are out with the next gen high end smartphones, but will this slow and steady concept win the race in the high end market ??
The LG G3 has an 2k/QHD display and finding applications for this device may seem to be an issue, as the app developers have not yet programmed their apps to support this high resolution display. Give it time, iy’ll all be there for the taking in a while. The HTC’s One M8 and Sony’s Xperia Z2 may seem to be the only competition as Samsung’s Galaxy S5 has not been getting great positive response.
