LG G3 Specs

The LG G3, released in the summer of 2014, was one of the first phones to feature a QHD 1440×2560 display, lending it a pixel-per-inch rating of 534, which LG claimed could reproduce the clarity of fine art. It was also the first device to have laser-autofocus, a feature that improves the speed at which the G3’s camera can adjust focus. It’s noted as having some of the smallest bezels of any phone available (at the time of its release), and because of that, it’s been regarded as one of the more forward-thinking phones in terms of design. It has a removable battery, which was a benefit not found on many “flagships” from 2014.

In the specs department, the G3 shipped with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC with 2GB of RAM on the 16GB model, but 3GB of RAM on the 32GB model. It originally shipped with Android 4.4.4, but has been upgraded to Android 5.0. The rear camera’s sensor, which utilizes optical image stabilization, has a resolution of 13MP, and is able to film video at 1080p and 2160p, both at 30fps.

Reviewers say: The G3 is made from plastic, and reviewers find this to make the phone feel cheap, however lightweight. The camera, with its added features, does indeed produce above-average results. Many find LG’s UI to be light enough to not get in the way, unlike other OEM Android skins.
