LG G3 vs Oppo Find 7: Resolution wars

 

The LG G3 and Oppo Find 7 are the most recent embodiment of the latest and greatest that smartphones can offer, being the first (and still only) two devices that sport QHD screens. Whether or not a resolution of 2560 x 1440px on a 5.5-inch display is...

LG G3 vs. Sony Xperia Z2: Distance to impact

 

The premium droids are in combat mode and we are making ourselves comfortable to watch another pair fight it out for a place at the top. We've seen a few already, the newcomer LG G3 itself involved in a couple. The Xperia Z2 has a few under its belt as...

The phone that opened the season of flagship debuts and the one that makes it a full circle. If done right, a full circle in this business is a level up on an ascending spiral. It looks like LG did it right, to find themselves perched at the top in...

LG G3 vs. HTC One (M8): Duel duo

 

How do you compare phones that are so different - the LG G3 and HTC One (M8) barely have a common feature between them. As we found out though, even different specs can create a similar user experience, it's more than just a numbers game.

The LG G3 took the trophy and headed home, but the HTC One (M8) got in its way. On paper the LG G3 is the superior phone - same size, but bigger screen - the first of its kind, better camera, bigger battery. The HTC One (M8) initially only had its...

LG G3 review: the company's best phone yet

 

Bigger, higher resolution, simpler to use. That's how we described LG's latest flagship, the G3, when we finally got our hands on it last week. The headl

Vivid display ; Solid performance ; Good battery life ; Great camera

Might be too big for some ; Some unnecessary software additions

In the G3, LG has almost produced a power user's dream. That QHD display, responsive performance and decent battery life make for a fully loaded handset that should have broad appeal. Sadly, until we know the price, its overall value is yet to be...

LG G3 hands-on: First look

 

The LG G2 is a living legend for its razor thin bezels but it's time to pass on the torch. The compactness spell worked once again and the LG G3 fits a massive 5.5" QHD screen in a body that's barely bigger than that of its competitors. Who need...

LG G3 Vigor review

 

If you like everything about the LG G3 except its high price tag, feast your eyes on the $350 LG G3 Vigor. Lighter and cheaper than its big brother, the G3, the phone has the same styling and some of the same features of the high-end phone at a lower...

The LG G3 Vigor has a vibrant screen, a unique design and plenty of useful software features.

The phone's meager battery often needs to be topped off during the day.

The LG Vigor has much of the same style and features of the G3, but at a fraction of the price.

LG G3 Vigor ( burgundy red)

 

The Vigor is the latest in LG's G3 line, which includes the flagship G3 and the G3 S . Side by side, the Vigor and G3 S look identical, and indeed the two phones have nearly the same specs. CNET editor Andrew Hoyle reviewed the G3 S, and while he took...

LG G3 Vigor (AT&T)

 

The G3 Vigor smartphone may be shrunken down from the flagship LG G3, but it offers an excellent entry-level Android value on AT&T.

Aggressively low price. Nice 5-inch, 720p LCD. Long battery life.

Middling camera performance. Low internal storage.

Conclusions and Competition Though its 5-inch display is anything but small, the LG G3 Vigor is still a miniaturized flagship in the same vein as the HTC One Remix . But unlike that phone and older, small-screen options like the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini...

LG G3 Vigor (Sprint)

 

The G3 Vigor smartphone may be shrunken down from the flagship LG G3, but offers an excellent entry-level Android value on Sprint.

Aggressively low price. Nice 5-inch, 720p LCD. Long battery life.

Middling camera performance. Low internal storage.

Camera and Conclusions The 8-megapixel rear-facing camera is disappointing, churning out middling shots, especially in anything but ideal lighting. Outdoors, in good light, the G3 Vigor snaps off suitably sharp images that skew towards overexposed....
