LG G3 may end up being significantly larger than Galaxy S5 or HTC One (M8)

While customers around the world are patiently waiting for LG to unveil the G3 smartphone, there's one country where things often happen slightly faster when it comes to technology, and that country is Japan. No, the G3 hasn't been made available there (yet), but still, Japan customers will soon be able to get their hands on something similarly awesome. Today, LG and Japanese carrier KDDI announced the so-called LG Isai FL - the successor to last year's Isai, and guess what - the LG G2 and the Isai had a lot in common. Obviously, we're excited to have a look at the new Isai FL, because it might give us accurate indications of what to expect from the upcoming G3.
Those who follow the news regularly probably know that the LG G3 is expected to feature a massive 5.5-inch display with QHD resolution. Of course, the Isai FL has exactly such a screen. We know what you're thinking - that's a huge display for a smartphone! Wouldn't this make it too big, even by today's standard? Well, you can check out the size comparison below - we're lined up the LG Isai FL, Galaxy S5, One (M8), iPhone 5s and other potential rivals of the handset, so that we can see exactly how big LG's proposition is going to be, compared to the rest of the high-end landscape.
An important note to make here is that while we expect the LG G3 to share many design principles with the LG Isai FL, we can in no way be sure that these are the exact dimensions that the G3 is going to have. As you can see from the comparison below, the Isai FL is a significantly larger and thicker handset than the international G2, so who knows, hopefully, LG will at least be able to make the G3's profile a bit thinner than that, but even then, we're getting the feeling that this 5.5" phone will be quite a bulky affair. Then again... it's a 5.5" phone, so we guess that is to be expected. Anyway, let us know what you think in the comments!

I'm totally fine with those monster sized smartphones as long as you get mini version of those flagships too and with mini I mean the size not the specs!

So it can be lined up together with the other phones in the 2nd column.

Very compact dimensions! OnePlus One looks over sized by comparison

Other Oems use quality prestige materials than cheap degrading low class plastic

You really think a marketing is all it takes ? A company's success or failure is dependent on several factors and marketing is one of them not the only one. If marketing is all it takes then why did Samsung spent $10 billion on R&D ? And if Samsung is fooling people with marketing then why do people keep coming back to their products and keep buying them ? Why does every Galaxy S gen outsells its previous generation ? With marketing you can only fool someone once not again and again. Its features like: -Phase detection which allows 0.3 sec autofocus (only found on DSLRs) -Power saving mode which offers 1 day of battery life at 10% -Technology like Lucid Logic for long battery life is implemented. -Camera lens which was tested around the globe from dusk to dawn by snapping 1000 pictures a day to test their capability of HDR. -They offer lots of accessories -Great global customer service -Best OEM when it comes to updates. ...and those are just tip of the iceberg......... The simple explanation is, SOME PEOPLE PREFER FUNCTION OVER FORM AND THAT'S WHY THEY BUY SAMSUNG !
