LG G3 will be the company's first smartphone to reach 10 million units sold

LG G3 will be the company's first smartphone to reach 10 million units sold
LG released its G3 flagship smartphone in late May, first in South Korea, and then gradually in other markets. The handset is now available almost everywhere around the world, and is on track to breaking the 10 million units sold mark.

According to The Korea Times, LG confirmed in a recent statement that the G3 “will exceed the 10 million sales mark” - becoming the company’s first smartphone to do so. While LG didn’t say when it expects the 10 million milestone to be reached, this will probably happen pretty soon. 

The G3 helped LG ship a record 14.5 million smartphones in the second quarter of the year, and the company already unveiled two cheaper variants of it: the G3 s / Beat, and the G3 Stylus.

Introduced as the first Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) smartphone made by a major manufacturer, the LG G3 is a high-end device that offers plenty of attractive features, including a 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, a front-facing camera that lets you take selfies using gestures, a 2.5 GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, and 3 GB of RAM. To find out more about the smartphone, you should read our LG G3 review.

The Optimus G was great and then they just kind of dropped the ball from there.

So your saying the G2 was a flop device? I personally believe it was the best LG smartphone made.

What are you thinking for saying that. The LG g2 was a flop device.

How so? Nearly every aspect of the G2 was amazing, excluding the software. And the G2 is vastly superior to the G in every way possible. Except build quality, but the G was glass so not very robust.

Button on the back and the choice to go with a 5.2 inch screen. There was a reason Google totally ignored the G2 but copied the G very closely. The Nexus 5 was a much better device because they pretty much went the opposite of the G2.

I will wait to see that what Samsung will bring on the table with its Note 4 and then will decide to get Note 4 or LG G3.

I was looking at a friend's G3 recently and noticed the screen/phone are warmer than I am used to for a phone.

Is this normal for the G3?

Other than this strangely higher temperature, the G3 is a very nice phone. Well, provided one can get used to "buttons on back". I'm still not sold on that either, but it seems like a smaller issue than the warm temps.

Just because the G2 didn't sell that well does not mean it was a flop. It was probably the best phone of 2013.

Pffft! Samsung sells that many in one hour. LG is strictly for amateurs.

Samsung is for amateurs, the only reason why people buy it is because it's a popular phone just like how people buy up iPhone. People ignore all of the issues they have with Samsung phones because of its popularity. I say that you should try other phone brands and then you will ever how sh!tty samsung phones are, but that's just my two cents

I really like how Samsung Fanbois feel threatened, by the way the G3 was not as good as the G2 honestly.

Not sure why people complain about the power button, I never even use it. Double tap for the win. Most addicting and convenient way to unlock a phone ever.

let's be honest,i personally think g3 is one of the horrible phone for lg...yup it look cool,and bunch of features,big battery,all seem nice on specs sheet,but g3 too many issues ,screen is too dim,batterylife is not as good as g2,bad performance,frame rate dropping, and these issue shouldn't happens in a flagship phone.

it still a good phone,but not the best.

Great design (I'm personally sick of iPhones and Galaxys), removable battery/SD card, much better battery than my old S4 (1-2 extra on-screen hours time), performance on par with other S801 devices here (36k Antutu), overall pretty smooth performance @ International 3GB/32GB model, screen is very good overall... I can notice the extra sharpness over >5.5'' 1080p phones and Apple's stuff. It's not the brightest screen but it's not dim either, definitelly usable under sunlight and max brightness is still too bright for my eyes. Could be better but overall great phone and the best H1/2014 flagship for me, hence why it's selling better than previous LG phones.

Is that why the G3 seems warmer than the usual phone? ;-)
