LG G3 Smartphone and LG G Watch Review

 

Hot potato. The LG G3 has received much acclaim and we cannot deny that we looked forward to the first smartphone with a WQHD display. Still, although LG does a lot right, some technical problems with the screen, average battery runtimes and especially...

McAfee Security cannot be removed (completely), High black levels, No USB 3.0, Micro lags, Throttling (under load), No MHL 3.0, A smartphone capable of natively playing the UHD videos (which it takes!) on a TV. MHL 3.0 would have been useful

LG G3 Review

 

The LG G3 is the culmination of LG's 2 years winning-run in the Android market. As the tip of the spear of LG's smartphone line, the G3 brings its share of high-impact features, and it is undeniable that its 2560×1440 5.5″ display will set the pace for...

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...

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 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...

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....

LG G3 (T-Mobile)

 

The LG G3 on T-Mobile somehow packs a world-beating screen and a huge battery into a slim, premium-feeling case, making it the most advanced phone on the market.

Unmatched screen resolution. High-quality design. Sharp camera. Huge screen for the size. 32GB for a 16GB price. Very good battery life.

Huge phone. Screen resolution may be too high to perceive for some. Lower benchmark scores than some competitors. Call quality could be better.

Competition and Conclusions The LG G3 joins the Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) at the top of the Android heap, but the distinction between the three is more a matter of taste than anything else. Each phone delivers comparable performance, albeit with...

LG G3 review: A superb flagship smartphone with a great display

 

The LG G3 is an elegant high-end smartphone with a superb 5.5-inch screen, a high-quality 13-megapixel main camera, a fast quad-core SoC, intelligent UI skinning and an admirably restrained set of software extras.

High-resolution Quad HD display ; Excellent physical design ; Intelligently executed UI skin and software extras ; Good front and rear cameras

Battery life could be better

The LG G3 has snuck up on the outside to become our favourite handset of the year so far, winning a well-deserved Editors' Choice award. The 5.5-inch Quad HD screen plays its part in that achievement, but we're also impressed with the range of...

LG G3 (Verizon) Review

 

LG's G3 sports a high-resolution QHD screen and powerful camera, but it's hurt by lackluster battery life.

Super-sharp QHD screen; Sleek design; Fast laser focus camera

Below-average battery life; Dim display

LG G3 (Sprint) Review

 

LG's G3 packs the sharpest smartphone display yet and a fast laser focus camera in a sleek gold body, but it's not our top pick.

Handsome design with exclusive gold color; Sharpest display in class; Nifty adjustable keyboard; Improved software

Relatively dim display; Disappointing battery life; Inconsistent Spark LTE speeds in NYC
