The LG G3 is the first top-end smartphone with a super high-res, 5.5” Quad HD display, and it has plenty of innovation to get excited about: starting with the tiny screen bezel…

Come on PA!!! 2nd one isn't a issue, we have a option in display->settings to hide front touch buttons for all applications & 3 out of 5 issues related to only display... IMO not much worried issues :)

Hugging a phone that's not available yet? *confused*

Yes, you are confused. The S5 Active has been available from AT&T for some time.

My HTC One only goes down to 14 nits and its more than adequate. 9 is actually pretty good. Also, I only set my brightness up to 25% when I am outside and I can see my screen clearly. Im sure the G3 is fine.

Too many flaws in killer areas imo. Best smartphone of the year will be the note 4 or ip6.

Seems LG just released the QHD display for bragging right's sake. The screen is dull and has poor outdoor visibility.
14. icyrock1 (Posts: 307; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
B-but it'z got so many pixels!!!!1!!111!
(but yeah, it seems like it. That's a shame, too. Given how amazing the G2's screen was in both brightness, adaptability, color accuracy, and overall being an amazing screen).

Honestly, from all the displays I'be used this year, the S5 has the best outdoor visibility and then the iPhone 5S. My M8 kind of sucks at full brightness. I'm quite disappointed.

I would have to agree on this one. LG should had made the QHD display right in terms of overall use visibility on releasing to their G3. This just made themselves look bad when another competitor comes up with QHD that had it right...

You'll never accept AMOLED is better...
you're big hater here like those samsung , apple and google haters...
38. PapaSmurf (Posts: 10457; Member since: 14 May 2012)
It really isn't. The S5 hands down has the best outdoor visibility and blows my M8 out of the water.

Who cares about your devices. I'm sure others know about their quality in terms of outdoor visibility.
46. yUlek (Posts: 49; Member since: 14 May 2014)
Good sun visibility, low power consuption, perfect blackness. Yep, AMOLED is bad

Just like quad cores, 3 GB of RAM, x64: they mean nothing without software to back them up.

Did you just describe iOS, jellyboy? :)
64. Leo_MC (Posts: 1582; Member since: 02 Dec 2011)
Nop, that's 66% of any Android flagship.
At least x64 helps speed simultaneous data transfer.

I hope Samsung never uses on screen buttons, takes away some screen estate and there's still a lot of apps that doesn't support immersive mode.
29. dratomic (Posts: 483; Member since: 09 Oct 2013)
i hope too. samsungs hardware buttons are way better than the on screen ones.
