LG G3 will be launched around the world starting June 27

LG just announced that its 5.5-inch G3 flagship smartphone will be launched around the world starting June 27 - about one month after the handset went on sale in South Korea. According to LG, the G3 will first reach users in Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia and the Philippines. After that, the smartphone will make it to other markets in Asia, Europe and the Middle East. The US isn’t mentioned at all, but we already know that Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile will all sell the LG G3, most probably starting July.

The G3 is the world’s first Quad HD (1,440 x 2,560) smartphone manufactured by a well-known company. It runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and offers lots of nice features, including Smart Notice, a 13MP rear camera with laser autofocus, a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB / 3GB of RAM, and 16GB / 32GB of expandable internal memory.


As our LG G3 review is showing, the new handset is definitely one of the best smartphones of 2014, so it will be interesting to see how many units LG manages to sell before the end of the year.

Idk, the only thing that set G3 apart from G2 was the 4k and the screen. Since G2 has better battery life than G3 and also there is a 4k mod for the camera, I think id actually take the G2 instead.

Me too. IMO the G2's screen is actually better and much more well-rounded, because it does not suffer from the poor contrast, viewing angles, and brightness of the G3's screen...

Amazing in power reduction, but still lacking the "quality". Ive been using SLD3 for more than a year now, and when I look at the G2 the first thoughts I had were that it was over saturated and had a weird reflection? in the screen. I had a look at Erica Griffin's review on the screen and definitely seems to have signs of over saturation. No idea about the glare/reflection though, might have just been the UI icons or something. But for sure, G2>G3.

"The G3 will fist reach users!" LMFAO, that's definitely supposed to be "first" not "fist"...

Judging from the first picture, it's too big for her hands. I mean the phone.

I don't think customers asked for poor contrast, viewing angles and brightness.

These are all attract me to G3: 1. Removable battery with quick charging time. 2. 128 GB Memory card expandable. 3. Bigger screen with minimum bezel. 4. Laser auto focus in low light.

It's astounding how utterly underwhelming I am finding the G3. I'm not even remotely disappointed that there isn't any mention of Canadian availability.

I want the 3GB RAM/32GB internal memory version, but that version will not be sold here in Indonesia.

You could always buy in blackmarket (non-direct importer)

The G3 is a well rounded, quality phone with a screen that is excellent for fine detail. However, it feels like it was rushed to market in some ways. The screen could have used another round or two of development when it comes to image quality. The 801 should have been an 805. The audio performance, while not bad, could be better. Still, I would like to know the price and whether or not the phone is locked down. The right price could fix pretty much all of the above, given the phone is quite competent overall.

The display is the opposite of well-rounded. The detail is great but brightness, contrast, and viewing angles are horrible...

The G3 is not a compromised purchase in any way. I settled on it because I was genuinely impressed with LG's thoughtful engineering on this phone. I never imagined there could be a 5.5-inch smartphone that's perfectly comfortable to hold and use. IMO, LG schooled other manufacturers on how the phablet form factor should be done. That, and how to make plastic palatable. I have no doubt the Adreno 420 GPU in the S805 and future updates by LG will make the G3 a truly finished product, but I think the phone rules as it is, and I'm a picky user. If someone wants it, they should go ahead.
