Say cheese: LG G3 photographed in White and Gold
posted by Alan F. / May 17, 2014, 9:51 PM
There are still quite a few unanswered questions, which hopefully we will find out on the 27th of this month. There is a question about the silicon under the hood. Recently, we learned from someone who allegedly got to use the unit, that it will be driven by a Snapdragon 801 SoC. Some earlier reports suggested that the Snapdragon 805 SoC would be powering the model.
LG's current flagship model, the LG G2, was one of three handsets that we picked as the best smartphone for 2013. The other two models, incidentally, were the Nexus 5 and the Apple iPhone 5s.
- Display 5.5" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 13 MP / 2.1 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, Quad-core, 2500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(21h 3G talk time)

Kinda disappointed in the gold colorway, but black should be dope

I think it looks better than the Sony Xperia Z2

Maybe there will be two versions of this beast. 16GB version with FHD, 2GB of RAM, Snapdragon 801 And 32GB version with QHD, 3GB of RAM, Snapdragon 805 ┐(´_`)┌

why sould they release a "16GB version with FHD, 2GB of RAM, Snapdragon 801"? it would be almost identical with the G2.. Baseing that LG was the first to introduce the Snapdargon 800, i guess they will be the first to introduce the 805 version.. only a guess

Hello everyone! I'm curious about two things: Will the G3 have an SD card slot? And is the camera going to be a 13MP or 16MP? Thanks!

I personally don't like the way the bottom part is different colored than the top part. Otherwise, this looks like a beast of a phone.

I think this phone is going to be a flop for the following reasons: 5.5" is too big for most people... Performance might be laggy because of the QHD screen and heavy LG skin... Battery life might not be so good because of the QHD screen and powerful processor... Those back buttons are going to be hard to use and are quite unattractive and cheap-looking... The phone is overall cheap-looking due to the plastic body that they have tried to make look premium with an ugly metal-ish finish...

5.5" is too big if the bezel is wide. G2 is having a display which is almost equals to the size of original Galaxy Note but still the size of Galaxy S4.

I've had a Nexus 5 and now G2 and they are both lag free, Nexus 5 is slightly snappier but battery life is worlds apart. The screen and camera are also so much better on a G2 and I rarely ever use the buttons, just double tap to wake/sleep. Both awesome phones but I'd recommend the G2 over the Nexus 5

You guys always talking about lag. It's getting long in the tooth. I have a 5s and it also lags sometimes. Isn't it obvious by now that all phones stutters once in a while. It's annoying. Show me one phone out there that doesn't stutter and I will gladly dash you $200.

Exactly. The lag frenzy was from some iFans who had no life and wanted to rag on Android users, and was picked up by some WP low lifes who also wanted to rag on Android users. Fortunately there was only a small percentage from each of those groups that felt that way, unfortunately they still exist. I'll double down on your bet, every phone shows lag at some time or another. Most people who have a life and live in the real world don't care.

5.5 inches is a good size - why come out with another 5 inch phone? Just buy the mini version of this phone...

The screen on the G3 in the train looked like it was 1080p. I wonder if LG is going to market first with the Qualcomm 801 and a FHD display and later will follow with a higher spec 805 model with the QHD screen.

I think this will be the device that breaks through for LG. I'm not saying they'll reach Samsung sales levels just yet, but it will be a big launch for LG with some of the biggest stales for them. Probably the biggest this far. Can't wait for it.
