Poll results: Which of the eventual LG G3 features are you looking forward to the most?
The LG G3 announcement tomorrow looks imminent, but while we were waiting, we've also been gorging on specs and design photos galore. That's whywe asked you last week which of the stand-out 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.

I'm looking forward to entire unveiling, not to mention the the guest of honour. I have the G2, G Pro 2 and I'll surely be getting this as soon as humanly possible.

It's same size to Z2. But z2 is 5.2" screen. So exciting

I hope this brings something very special... I was disappointed that it didn't come with SD805. Should've been the best equipped with SD805.

Agree. Lg should wait another few months for the S805 or what happened to their Odin Socs that was custom made? The S800 to S801 is just an overclocked Cpu and Gpu. S805 reaches maximum 2.7Ghz, A9 cortex can go upto. But uses a upgraded Gpu which should give around 160gigaflops vs the S801 120Gf

No surprises here, considering a 5.5 inch smartphone to be so compact. In reply to refiilabe, i don't thinK SD801 is a disappointment coupled with 3 GIGS of RAM

I was dissapointed that it doesn't come with an SD805 as promised by some earlier rumour. With SD801, it won't really be much different than 1+1 and Find 7. But I still have very high hopes for this phone, and if my brain is attracted who knows, I may end up getting one.

What is wrong with sd801. Im pretty sure it can handle the lg g3 with ease

Because with a 2k screen, it will be pumping out *a lot* of pixels. On screen benchmarks are certain to take a hit, and it remains to be seen how it will handle in a real world scenario. Gaming, for instance, may not be too stellar when it comes to framerate.

LG could have made this phone the first of the 805 flagships instead of the very last of the 801 flagships.

Stop blaming LG for not putting the Snapdragon 805 chipset into the phone . Its not LG fault , why ? Because the chips are not produce by LG but by Qualcomm . Go ask Qualcomm why your 805 is not ready by end of May and please LG has nothing to do with chipset , they just buy and use whatever is new in the line .

I'm very disappointed with what LG has brought to the table this year. TBH, I would take the G2 over the G3 any day, even if they were the same price. This is for the sole reason that 5.5" is just TOO BIG. LG really screwed thrmselves over this year, because their average consumer does not want a huge, unwieldy phone like that...

So I guess nobody asked or cared about signal recepriton for voice and data? Without that you have a pretty useless peice of electronics. Or does everybody just think all phones will be average so who cares?
