Is this the back of the LG G3?
Earlier this week, we saw what appeared to be the new UI that’s going to be featured on LG’s upcoming G3 flagship smartphone. And now it looks like a photo of the handset itself was revealed by GSM Arena.

Unfortunately, said photo - embedded on the left - is heavily altered, and only shows the back of a white G3 (or what’s believed to be the G3 anyway).

The rear of the handset matches the design of these protective cases that are purportedly made for the G3 (although we can’t confirm their authenticity). We can see a rear camera with a Flash on its right side, and a a mysterious sensor on the left. Below the camera there’s a set of buttons - similar, and yet different from what we can see on the LG G2, or on the G Pro 2.

LG might officially announce the new G3 in the next few months. The smartphone should feature a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, most probably being the first handset from a well-known manufacturer to offer such a screen.

Besides white, the LG G3 should also have a gold version - and we’re thinking that black and red may also be among its color options (since the older G2 is available in these colors).

If this is indeed the back of the LG G3, do you like it so far?

Optimus G was much better looking than G2 and this supposedly G3.

why did LG go back to plastic and rounded phone?
really hope they start making good designs.

Yep, I don't understand it too, everyone praised design of OG and materials they used (it's still one of best looking phones IMO) g2 looks ugly so do G Pro 2.

I agree with that first part.. the G was an amazing phone... I had wished they would go back but it appears they are stuck on the ss design

The Optimus G was brilliant. They went all out with it. It still tanked hard though so you can't blame them for going the Samsung route.

Trying the same thing over and over again and hoping for different results is the definition of stupid. Or is that the definition of Nokia or HTC? Lol

Doing the same thing and expecting different results is the definition of insanity. I don't see why would say HTC fits that, considering they've done the biggest changes to their major devices compared to Samsung, Nokia, Sony, and Apple.

They keep on thinking the only they are doing wrong is marketing and they keep on going style over substance. That has always been their way of thinking.

That is the main problem, not the only problem, but the largest one. They don't have a huge following behind them because Samsung and Apple shut everyone else out of the market. At least LG, Motorola, and Sony have backgrounds and/or other types of products to give them some recognition, all HTC has is mobile, and they're relatively new at that compared to the competition.

Don't give me that stupid list of flaws that HTC has had in their first batches. If you intentionally go out looking for problems and go into forum threads that are specifically made for defective products, you're bound to have a ton of them. Here's what I got from just a few pages of Galaxy S5 troubleshooting forums; battery door shaking when loudspeaker is on, unable to use camera, complete loss of data connectivity when exiting WiFi area (requires reboot to fix), unresponsive home button, and unresponsive touch in folders. That took me all of 2 minutes to find, I'm sure there's more.

HTC has changed up everything to try and gain market share. They renovated their software, put everything they could into their design, use some of the best components out there, they give complete transparency with updates, they changed their approach to cameras, and tried getting new marketing deals with celebrities, which failed due to a lackluster marketing team.

Yes, the HTC One is big, but it's to allow those amazing speakers that put every other phone to shame. Yes, the camera isn't that great, but it's still miles ahead of what they used before, and is still perfectly good for anybody who isn't a photographer. Aside from those 2 things, everything else about it is amazing. The design, the feel in the hand, the screen, the UI, the features; everything. It just flows so nicely, for the short time I got to use, it was great.

Denial. Oh how powerful are thee,

The M8 is garbage.

It's HUGE, that one factor alone makes it worse than many phones.
Add to that the worst power button placement known to man. Poor on screen button placement that is much too high if you grip the phone from the bottom like most people do. Nicks on the bezel edges from taking it in and out of a case already. Rattling volume rocker that is looser than a whores private parts.

I don't even care about the camera, I care about ergonomics more but the ONLY two things you mentioned are like only two of the most important aspects of a mobile phone to most people.

So please spare me your HTC fanboy bs.

I get a perfect Samsung device first batch every single time. Never been able to get a perfect HTC device on the first 2 or 3 batches.

The battery door shaking thing is hilarious btw since the M8 is ridiculous loud when it is on my bedroom dresser table. So much so that it actually wakes me up and I use my phone on vibrate 100% of the time to prevent stuff like that and me forgetting to turn my ringer off.

It is HTC not thinking about these subtle things fir every user that makes them complete garbage.

I find it funny how all you do is spout off about how terrible the M7 and M8 (and HTC in general) are, but nearly every review site applauds HTC for making such great devices. Everyone I know who has owned those devices has never had a problem, and in the time I've had to work with them (multiple units of both), I never found any problems aside from the M8's added height and slick feeling because of the metal on the sides, which wasn't a problem for the M7. The last time I had personally seen a problem with a HTC device was a improperly fit SIM card tray on the One X, but it wasn't on any of the other 3 units I looked at. That was nearly 2 years ago. Get over it.

I've gotten perfect HTC devices from 3 out of the 4 models I've owned. The only one that wasn't perfect was my old MyTouch 4G, the gloss coat on the back was chipped at the bottom. Got a new unit, it was flawless.

The M8 is SUPPOSED to be loud. If you didn't think such massive speakers wouldn't create noises, you're retarded. I would imagine if the Galaxy S5 had the same speakers, it would tear itself apart since it can barely handle it's own little single one.

Learn how to read. I said the vibrating when phone is on vibrate woke me up, not the speakers. That is just extremely poor after though on a HTC's part.

Let's just put it this way. A perfect handset for an HTC fan is FAR from perfect for people with higher standards. I pay $700 for a device nothing better be out of place.

Your HTC buddies that say they have perfect handsets either have really low standards or are lying.

As for the reviews. I am sure the public relations supervisor at HTC makes sure these problems do not show up on review units but even then they drop the ball. The extremely loose and rattling volume rocker shows up in the Techradar review.

I thought it was a special detector that detected if a Samsung fanboy was trying to use the phone and if this was the case, would emit an electric shock.

I'm sure people working on LG are all adults. Take this guy's speech as a grain of salt.

P.S. The design isn't very special. Although all could change when the whole unit is shown to the internet.
