Poll results: Which of the eventual LG G3 features are you looking forward to the most?
The LG G3 (or at least its Asian version, if we trust the leaked slides), will sport a 5.5" IPS-LCD display with 1440x2560 pixels of Quad HD resolution, whose 538ppi pixel density would be a record for a brand-name flagship. The phone is only slightly wider than the Xperia Z2, for instance, while Sony's phone has smaller, 5.2" display, so we are expecting a very good screen-to-phone ratio from LG's seasonal flagship. When it comes to the silicon inside, the G3 is shown to sport a Snapdragon 801 chipset with Adreno 330 GPU, paired with the generous 3 GB of RAM. On the back, a 13 MP camera with OIS+ tech will be vying for the shutterbugs' attention, and we'd wager to guess it is a module very similar to the one in the G Pro 2 phablet, which has proven to be very capable in the camera department already. The 3000 mAh battery is par for the course with these phablets, unless it translates into a stellar battery life, but we'll only know this when we run our test on the retail unit. We are also expecting a new, flatter interface, with a plethora of new functions, and overhauled visuals, which might be the biggest UI redesign in LG's Android history. Finally, LG already announced a set of unique accessories for the G3, like the QuickCircle case with Smart Lighting that takes advantage of the new lock screen, and the Tone Infinim Bluetooth headset with record battery endurance, and G3-specific features.
Interestingly enough, most of our 2029 respondents pointed out not the unique Quad HD display, or the other hardware and software niceties as most desirable, but rather the expected good screen-to-body ratio - almost 36% marked it as the most important aspect of the phone they are waiting for. This goes to show the increased attention that this metric is getting as the screens in our phones are getting bigger and bigger, making them more unwieldy to handle properly. The next result in line was predictable, as we've never before seen a 538ppi pixel density on a 5.5" brand-name phone - 32% pegged the unique Quad HD display as the most desirable feature they are looking forward in the G3. The optically-stabilized camera and the new software features are a distant third and forth, while the innovative accessories like the QuickCircle case, are at least somewhat interesting for our respondents to check out, once the G3 lands. Of course, we'll be covering the event live, and we'll explore every nook and cranny of the handset tomorrow, so stay tuned to PhoneArena for all the festivities.
