YouTube now plays 1440p videos on the LG G3

0. phoneArena 08 Aug 2014, 08:52 posted on

The first globally-available device from with Quad HD display a well-known manufacturer, the LG G3, is putting to shame the plethora of flagships that sport displays with a mere resolution of 1080 x 1920. The 5.5-inch screen of the G3 comes with a spectacular resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, and although some apps and games are not yet compatible with the device, Google wants to make sure that the undoubtedly-coming crop of Quad HD devices can make full use of their displays.

I guess it depends if the video supports that feature? I watched some videos and still have the option of the 720p and 1080p. Haven't seen 1440p yet.

You need an 8.4+ inch device in order to enjoy a YouTube Quad HD content!

The G3's screen is so small you'd be hard pressed to tell whether it's playing a 1080p or a 2k video.

Look at comment #12 below.

By the way, the high res display is there for people to enjoy, not to force their eyes to tell the individual pixels.

Some of the comments are overlooking what this really means.The1440 res is relative
To the G3 and proper playback conditions. A Nexus can't playback a 1080. Res without a video recorded at that speed on a compatible device with a network band with capable of the consistent speed to keep the resolution at an optimal performance level. The device alone doesn't won't guarantee performance.

The great QHD screen from LG that's extremely dim and relatively inaccurate compared to some 1080p screens on the market?

last night I had update to YouTube app (version 6.0.13) and now I can watch 1440p quality.
you can`t watch 4K (2160p) on LG G3. "just" 2K (1440p)
