Revealing LG G3 leaked images show its size, compared to HTC One (M8)

Umm similar to the M8... I think that's somewhat a good news. We'll have to see what this phone brings us though. The expectation of this phone is just extremely high after the successful release of the G2.

I prefer G3 higher screen resolution and it's body material/design over the m8
34. chebner (Posts: 150; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
You prefer the higher resolution on the G3 to 1080p? Do you use your go go gadget magnifying glass? Because that's the only way you'll notice a difference, and even then the difference will be extremely minimal.
1080p is perfectly fine for a phone. Fewer pixels = less processing = better performance and less need for a giant battery.

No, you can see a difference if you have glasses. It makes it easier to read with out them on. Just because you don't see the benefit, doesn't mean it's not there.

see it better without glasses? that makes absolutely no sense.
47. icyrock1 (Posts: 307; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
Obviously you don't have glasses, then. Normally, you would need you glasses to pick out fine detail, but if the screen PPI is dense enough, it compensates for your lack of not having glasses on by making sharper images. It's why I can see the pixels on my iPhone 5S and Nexus 5, though, these two are soooooo much better than phones used to be.

For the last time, this "1080p is perfectly fine for a phone" is just ill-informed rubbish. Higher pixel density makes many things easier to see more clearly and easily, especially for people who do not have perfect vision.
Does it take extra battery for this? Yes, often it does, at least with the current QHD technology. But display legibility vs. battery life is a trade-off a customer can decide on.

"But display legibility vs. battery life is a trade-off a customer can decide on."
Really? Where can I find a 1080p LG G3?
57. Taters (Posts: 3690; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Any other flagship with the SD 801. Some of them have better size and button placement to boot. Avoid the M8 though, the button placement is even worse.
60. Kamehameha (Posts: 44; Member since: 21 Apr 2014)
That is the point. I have to choose an entirely different phone to get a 1080p screen.
58. chebner (Posts: 150; Member since: 17 Oct 2011)
'Higher pixel density makes many things easier to see more clearly and easily'
I completely agree, and a few years ago pixel density was low enough where every increase in resolution resulted in noticeably sharper, more detailed screens. However even on a 5.5" screen 1080p is well beyond the point where higher pixel density will result in a noticeably sharper screen, unless of course Inspector Gadget is using his go go gadget magnifying glass or binoculars.
'especially for people who do not have perfect vision'.
This is just utter nonsense. Higher pixel density made wonderous improvement to screen clarity (in the past), but I'm pretty sure it can't improve someone's vision.
If you can't see the detail in something without glasses, how is adding more detail going to help. By that same logic one would only need glasses when viewing low resolution pictures or video screens. In real life there are no pixels, pixel density is in essence infinite, and yet you still need glasses for that.
59. InspectorGadget80 (Posts: 6891; Member since: 26 Mar 2011)
It won't matter anyway since companies are using 2K higher screen resolution.

G3 looks slightly better than G2..but still its not looker like M8. Now android phone makers really need to think about build quality because when it comes to spec Most Phones Identical & tired of gimmicky features. .
2. maherk (Posts: 1643; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
It doesn't look as compact as LG wanted us to believe, it looks like it might be almost as big as the Note 3.
13. sniper1087 (Posts: 418; Member since: 31 Dec 2011)
Huh? The M8 is 5 inches, this is 5.5 inches, it cannot be the same size wide, because of screen size, but we have not seen how tall it is. The note 3 still bigger at 5.7 inches and has kore bezel, just wait until the G3 gets compared side by side with the note 3.
18. maherk (Posts: 1643; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
Thank you captain obvious, I didn't know it is a 5.5" phone. The point is it that LG has been promoting the G3 as a phablet in a 5 incher's body when leaks in the past week and now this picture shows that it's not. I had the Note, Note 2, and Note 3, so size for me isn't an issue, but it is a big deal for the majority of the consumers out there. Remember, this is supposed to be their smartphone flagship, not a the phablet one.
29. drunkenjay (Posts: 298; Member since: 11 Feb 2013)
its only 0.4mm wider than my xperia z2 and 1mm thicker. if you call xperia z2 a phablet then so will the lg g3.
to me this is wonderful news.
35. Taters (Posts: 3690; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
The Z2 is already close enough in size to the Note 3 so this is even closer. Too big.
41. drunkenjay (Posts: 298; Member since: 11 Feb 2013)
you can say that as well to the htc one m8. its taller than the g3 and the g3 is 4mm wider than the m8. the htc one is also a phablet only it has a 5 inch screen.
42. drunkenjay (Posts: 298; Member since: 11 Feb 2013)
the note 3 is 6mm taller and 5mm wider.
seriously phones after 4.8 inches started to get hard for 1 hand usage. but if you think the g3 is a big phone i suggest you go to an iphone 5. because obviously you dont like the phone and finding a way to talk crap.
45. maherk (Posts: 1643; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
But the M8 is the easiest one out of the 3 to use single handedly.
55. Taters (Posts: 3690; Member since: 28 Jan 2013)
Yeah the M8 is huge too. Even the GS5 is too big. Huawei and I guess Motorola will be the only ones that don't have giant flagships in 2014.
16. Retro-touch (Posts: 268; Member since: 24 Oct 2011)
They didn't show how tall it is, its already been discussed at Android Police but its definitely wider based on the dimensions but not as tall as the HTC One M8
20. maherk (Posts: 1643; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
That's my point, it looks as wide as your average phablet can get, which will be a problem for those who want a phone for one hand operations.
3. MarkArigayo (Posts: 240; Member since: 18 Dec 2013)
G3's appearances much better than both M8 and S5.
8. maherk (Posts: 1643; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
Nothing comes close to the M8's beauty. Maybe the Z2 is next, but only when it is smudges free.
15. Awalker (Posts: 683; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)
From the picture in the article the G3 looks better.
30. T.Law (Posts: 370; Member since: 10 May 2014)
Never like metal phones but this looks sexy.
4. ArtSim98 (Posts: 3453; Member since: 21 Dec 2012)
Ugh that case is horrible! The phone itself is amazing though!
5. smallworld (Posts: 448; Member since: 13 Jul 2012)
Somehow, I find it very ugly compared to other flagships.
7. akki20892 (Posts: 3742; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
For u beautiful=ugly and ugly=beautiful
For us beautiful=beautiful and ugly=ugly
22. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
The M8 is ugly with to much curves like the iphone's
The G3 has less and less curves than the M7
Also the G3 is wider and I love wide phones than tall long ugly ones. The Nexus4 had the best screen size, not to wide not to long, just perfectly balanced
28. maherk (Posts: 1643; Member since: 10 Feb 2012)
We all know why you call the M8 ugly, I'll let thoZE who don't know yet have a little gueZZing about your reaZons.
The Z2 is gorgeous, there is no doubt about that, but just because you keep bashing the M8 on every other article won't affect what the majority of us think about it, it is the best when it comes to not just the looks but also the construction of the phone.
32. NokiaFTW (Posts: 2058; Member since: 24 Oct 2012)
The M8 is ugly? Boy I think its time to get that cataract out!
38. 0xFFFF (Posts: 3806; Member since: 16 Apr 2014)
+1 for the Nexus 4. That was a very nice balance of screen size and phone size/shape.
6. akki20892 (Posts: 3742; Member since: 04 Feb 2013)
This is what I call: slick, premium, and beautiful.

Thats right the Lg3 with black brushed metal aluminum looks stunning with superb streamlined, but still no way near the oppo7 looks and SonyZ also L925.
24. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Yes agree the 930 and 925 1520 looks better, cause these devices a more rectangle with sharper edges than ugly curved edges.

11. jinghuiwee123 (Posts: 6; Member since: 16 May 2014)
Guys remember it's a 5.5 inch phone but when it compares to the HTC one m8 , it is just maybe 2-3% larger on physical size but the screen increase by 0.3 inch from 5.2 to 5.5 or an increase from 5.0 inch to 5.5 inch with a increase of 2-3% of physical size .
17. Awalker (Posts: 683; Member since: 15 Aug 2013)
That really doesn't matter to people like me who think the HTC One is too big.
44. Kamehameha (Posts: 44; Member since: 21 Apr 2014)
I am waiting for LG to mess up the LG G3 Mini. Again. I still want my 4.5” 1080p slim bezeled high specced phone...
23. Arte-8800 (banned) (Posts: 4562; Member since: 13 Mar 2014)
Looks better than the curved M8
26. baldilocks (Posts: 570; Member since: 14 Dec 2008)
I think we need to stop making bigger phones and concentrate on OTHER areas. This screen size war is so overplayed.
27. limonline (Posts: 6; Member since: 21 Mar 2013)
If we see it more carefully, G3's material looks cheap. Look at those rough edges. Although I admit that it looks good in picture, BUT I'm betting it won't be the same in real life and will feel cheap. We will see whether my analysis is correct or not when the G3 come out :)
31. karkavelas (Posts: 60; Member since: 25 Oct 2013)
First of all day after day I am losing the interest about LG g3.
Second those are very thin bezel and I think that the LG g3 would be really easy to brake if it fall down like LG g2 was.
Third I think that this screen with the combination of this battery is not gonna have good results.
About the beauty now I found m8 stunning but the LG g3 looks also good, but just good.( I find the back side not so good as the front)
33. mojtaba_mn (Posts: 217; Member since: 22 Feb 2013)
only htc m8 i love it very great and nice i think more beauty and handy
39. marbovo (Posts: 658; Member since: 16 May 2013)
It's a Giant? It's a monter? Noooo, its just a huuuge smartphone
53. marbovo (Posts: 658; Member since: 16 May 2013)
I'm sorry, I think I'm gonna kill myself for this mistake
51. Lauticol (Posts: 229; Member since: 25 Jun 2011)
LG should have sticked with 5.2 inches and even less bezels than G2.
56. Sourav123 (Posts: 1; Member since: 18 May 2014)
So,finally on LG Netherland's site all official information is in the market,and finally the puzzle of casing is solved......its NOT a brushed metal like plastic.....its ACTUALLY a light weight metal casing....which is written on the site distinctly.
