Twitter wars: LG says the G3 is the world's first Quad HD smartphone, Oppo disagrees

A couple of days ago, LG Mobile USA tweeted that “the world’s 1st phone with Quad HD display is here”, obviously talking about its new G3 (pictured above). While it’s true that the G3 is the first Quad HD handset made by a major company, as well as the first that’s widely available, it’s certainly not the first in the world to feature a screen with a 1,440 x 2,560 pixel resolution. Vivo Xplay 3S was the first, and the Oppo Find 7 was the second (Vivo and Oppo are brands owned by the same China-based company called BBK Electronics).

To make sure that people know the G3 isn’t really the first Quad HD smartphone, Oppo replied to LG on Twitter:

Oops, care to use "2nd phone with Quad HD display is here" instead? Eh... doesn't have the same ring to it. Or you know… the actual number. 3rd place is still nice.

LG didn’t reply back yet.

Of course, the LG G3 is a pretty awesome device even if it’s not the very first to offer a Quad HD display. To learn more about it, read our LG G3 review here.

Nope whatever people are saying, Oppo Find 7 was released one month earlier than LG G3.

In what sense would you refer to 'fandroids'?

Yeah, Oppo was probably first/second, but LG is the first to make the phone widely available, and that is a fact...

Every manufacturer can make a few prototypes and claim to be first with everything.....

Prototypes? These have been around for months.

I'm talking about avalability through official channels (oppostyle etc..), not buying it from some unknown Chinese website....

With the kind of screen quality and heating issues on LG G3, it probably is a prototype too

it doesnt matter what came first. if lg brought the quad hd to the market first then it is clearly faster than the find 7.

Yeah the g3 is a big brand phone. But that doesn't justify the white lie.

Even OPPO comes 2nd. Vivo xplay 3s was the first.

LG could have claimed the world's 1st GLOBALLY available moniker. But world's 1st quad HD phone? 2 hoots to LG

Vivo xplay 3s? That one dwindled like a fart in the wind.

Knowing LG is into screen bussines, they've probably had the QHD display on the phone back when its still a prototype.

XPlay of Find, neither of them went through CTS or FCC that are quite time consuming.
Not only they cannot be considered to be Android phones, they aren't even legitimate phones by today's standard for this matter.

By their standards, my former client would already have launched several 64bit Android phones, LMAO

How the hell can they not be considered Android phones? Are you pulling information out of your ass again?

You really know nothing.

They didn't pass the Android CTS (compatibility test suit), thus excluded from Google PlayStore.

They even didn't apply for that.

Why would a Chinese phone maker making phones for China want all the terrible rules and regulations that come with Google Play?

Terrible rules?

Why do/did you go to school/college then?

Why don't you grant yourself a Ph.D title out of your a$$?

Thats why LG is the first quad hd to EVERYONE not just in China or to someone who tries to import and then struggle to sideload GAPPS.

No matter who's first, QHD doesn't replace FHD as of now full stop.
