LG G3 vs Apple iPhone 5s vs LG G2: specs comparison

LG G3 vs Apple iPhone 5s vs LG G2: specs comparison
LG has finally officially taken the cover off the G3, the first phone with a Quad HD (2560 x 1440-pixel) screen. After countless leaks and rumors, we now know all the specifications and technical details about the LG G3, and it’s time to compare it against one of its top competitors, the Apple iPhone 5s.

The two are vastly different: the G3 with its large, 5.5-inch display represents the modern, 2014 device, large and perfectly prepared for your web and media consumption needs, while the iPhone represents a more pocketable format, easier to use on the go and single-handedly.

Apart from the obvious difference in resolutions, you can see what is it under the hood that makes each of the two tick.

In this specs comparison, we have also included the LG G2, LG’s last year’s flagship, to show you how the G3 has evolved from it. Take a look below.
