Is it worth the upgrade if you're coming from a last year flagship phone?

In UnderKg quick review in YouTube, he said that the sound quality from the 3.5 mm jack is not as good as LG G2 Pro. Is this true or is the LG G3 sound as good as LG G2 Pro?

Does the web-browser come with kitkat immersive-mode support so that it can hide android navigation and I can enjoy the entire screen?

The Display amd Camera? Is the Display really worse and is the Camera not impressive? Moreover, what about OIS+ and Laser Foucs? Does OIS+ really help in low light and video stability? Does Laser focus is a game changer?

Can u use laser focus at night?

It is meant to be used at night. The laser focus doesn't work in the daytime.

Does it use normal OIS or OIS+ when shooting in 4K?

41. 8800-Arte

Normal OIS. OIS+ uses digital image stabilization along with OIS. And digital image stabilization is unavailable while recording 4K.

Does Squeezing the sides produce a squeak like the G2? One of the only downsides of the G2

Before g3 was announed many rumors suggests the screen is based on energy efficient LTPS. But now, no review mentions it. So what's the official LG description of the screen tech?

It's LTPS: Last page of PA's LG G3 vs HTC M8 comparison.

If possible, please explain in detail what "custom webscript" you use to test battery life.Your test puts G3 ahead of any other current flagship including Samsung Galaxy S5, however GSMarena's battery test for G3 shows very poor numbers for web browsing and mediocre numbers for video playback, both numbers are worse than for Galaxy S5. All of this is quite confusing, so, if possible, shed some light on why you are confident that your battery measurtements are correct. Just saying that everyone uses different methodology won't do.

Hello PA, 1) How strong the flash light compare to Nokia 1020/S5/M8/Z2 2) Can this phone record UHD more than 10 minutes or more than 5GB in single file. 3) Can this phone snap fast moving object without blur image. 4) Can this phone avoid red eyes at dark night. 5) Can you list down the bad things about this phone. tq

also dont forget to tell us the cost to repair G3 for every part especially the UHD screen.

Sorry, I mean QHD not UHD..

2) Probably no. 3) Yes. Every phone can do that. 4) Yes. Almost every camera can do that. 5) Didn't you read PA's LG G3 review??

2) hmm.. that mean phone technology still far away. 4k recording just gimmick features. 3) you can confirm this? pls give me a link I want to see it. 4) Are you sure?. If you have one, pls try use your cellphone with auto flash then capture 5-10 people without any light around you and your friends.. My SGN3/SGS3 can't avoid this red eyes problem .

i really worry for battery , its true u said talk time is great in this phone but i think SCREEN ON TIME is really more important for us ! Xperia Z2 has about 11hours and S5 has about 9 hours Screen on time , but how about G3?

The review seemed to indicate that the device has a problem with lag and stuttering. You refer to it as "substantial" and then write it off as "not really that bad". You then compare it to the amount of lag on the S5, but according to the S5 review: "Well, it looks like Samsung has tried to achieve a similar effect on the Galaxy S5, as this is probably the most instantaneous Android smartphone that we've used!" Which is it? How bad is the lag on the G3? And how does a device that has "a substantial amount of lag and choppiness" get a score of 9.2?

I guess you are referring to Color Tempreture?
