While customers around the world are patiently waiting for LG to unveil the G3 smartphone, there's one country where things often happen slightly faster when it comes to technology, and that country is Japan...

I'm totally fine with those monster sized smartphones as long as you get mini version of those flagships too and with mini I mean the size not the specs!

I just wish OEMs made phones with the same specs except different screen/battery sizes (e.g. like laptops)
I want a ~130 x 70 mm phone with ~5" screen and top of the line specs

So it can be lined up together with the other phones in the 2nd column.

I thought it was pretty obvious but I guess not lol.

Hmm... according to Google image search, this is the only hit aside from PhoneArenahttp://onehallyu.com/index.php

5 inch is what i call maximum for mainstream smartphones(though 4.5-4.7 suits best for me )

10.5mm is too thick, just like Sony Xperia S.

There should be someone that owns all of these phones
12. FoneAddict (Posts: 191; Member since: 05 Jul 2011)
Very compact dimensions! OnePlus One looks over sized by comparison
17. Neo_Huang (Posts: 286; Member since: 06 Dec 2013)
At the expense of on-screen buttons, and a way unproportional top bezel.

More reason to stay away from LG phone

Other Oems use quality prestige materials than cheap degrading low class plastic

Is that why samsung sells more 'plastic' then all of those with 'prestige material' companies combined ?
27. PhoneArenaUser (Posts: 5461; Member since: 05 Aug 2011)
It sells more because of good marketing.
32. tech2 (Posts: 1783; Member since: 26 Oct 2012)
You really think a marketing is all it takes ? A company's success or failure is dependent on several factors and marketing is one of them not the only one.
If marketing is all it takes then why did Samsung spent $10 billion on R&D ?
And if Samsung is fooling people with marketing then why do people keep coming back to their products and keep buying them ? Why does every Galaxy S gen outsells its previous generation ? With marketing you can only fool someone once not again and again.
Its features like:
-Phase detection which allows 0.3 sec autofocus (only found on DSLRs)
-Power saving mode which offers 1 day of battery life at 10%
-Technology like Lucid Logic for long battery life is implemented.
-Camera lens which was tested around the globe from dusk to dawn by snapping 1000 pictures a day to test their capability of HDR.
-They offer lots of accessories
-Great global customer service
-Best OEM when it comes to updates.
...and those are just tip of the iceberg.........
The simple explanation is,
SOME PEOPLE PREFER FUNCTION OVER FORM AND THAT'S WHY THEY BUY SAMSUNG !

"You really think a marketing is all it takes ?"
You really think a cheap looking plastic design is all it takes?

sometimes your friendboyism really irritates me
I mean it means a lot to keep something this compact. just compare it with Note 2 then
16. redbaronk12 (Posts: 23; Member since: 14 Dec 2013)
Looking forward to 5.5". Take my money.
18. Nicholas-Paul (Posts: 11; Member since: 03 May 2014)
I like the thin bezels and I prefer 5,5 inch instead of 5.

LG Isai L22: 72 x 144 x 9.1 mm 152g
LG G2: 70,9 x 138.5 x 8.9 mm 143g
With this we can assume LG G3 will be smaller than the Isai L24.
20. robert26101 (Posts: 73; Member since: 21 Mar 2014)
The G3 and One+one look like bricks. There to big .
22. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 2338; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
This is obvious as screen's size is 5.5" still not much larger than both.
23. tokuzumi (Posts: 233; Member since: 27 Aug 2009)
I'm sure this will be a nice phone, with a nice screen. I'm sure the resolution was the driver of the screen size, as trying to get QHD out of a 5" screen is probably out of the question with today's tech. I'll be curious to see the QHD screen of a 5.5" screen, vs the 1080p of the Note 3. Pixels be tiny on that too.
24. Nabil2511 (Posts: 147; Member since: 27 Jan 2014)
if the top bezel is that small.. where would the front camera be?
25. wargreymon (Posts: 140; Member since: 05 Nov 2013)
According to my calculations based on G3 going to be 5.5" and the picture of G3 protective screen. It will be 73.4 x 143.2 mm. Yes, that is 1-2mm wider/taller than S5 with 0.4" bigger screen.
26. Cicero (Posts: 207; Member since: 22 Jan 2014)
Looking at those phones I still want the home button. It looks natural to be there and do not interfere with the screen.
29. jimbo1mcm (Posts: 23; Member since: 07 May 2014)
G3 still looks great to me. Just slightly larger than the G2 with tons of more features. Take my money......and no launch day lines like Apple!!
30. ashouhdy (Posts: 44; Member since: 31 Oct 2013)
Some how I find those super thin phones are hard to handle and tend to slip easy out of your hands. I cant use my note3 confidently unless I put a case that increases it thickness with few millimeters. Then comes the width it should be width less in my opinion to allow better grip.

Are these side bezels right? They seems to be not thin as I figured out.
33. HTCOE (Posts: 406; Member since: 20 Nov 2011)
if you're looking for no bezels on the side you're weird
35. Taters (Posts: 2592; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Looks like it is up to moto or Google to make a decent sized handset. The z2 compact might be too small.
