The G3 was LG’s flagship smartphone for 2014 and was without a doubt one of the most powerful smartphones released that year. It was introduced to the public in May 2014 and was made available in June.
LG G3 main selling point was probably the impressive 5.5-inch True HD-IPS+ LCD display with Quad HD (1440 x 2560) resolution, 534 ppi pixel density, and Gorilla Glass 3 protection. The smartphone is 146.3 mm tall, 74.6 mm wide, 8.9 mm thin, and weighs in at 149 grams. Just like its predecessor, it has the volume and power keys mounted on the back.
LG G3 was released pre-loaded with Android 4.4.2 KitKat and it’s upgradable to Android 5.0 Lollipop. When it comes to processing tasks, G3 boasts about a Snapdragon 801 SoC with four Krait 400 cores clocked at 2.5 GHz and Adreno 330 GPU. It’s available with either 16 GB storage and 2 GB of RAM or 32 GB storage and 3 GB of RAM. It also has support for microSD cards up to 128 GB.
The device has a 13 MP rear-mounted camera with phase detection/laser autofocus, optical image stabilization, dual-LED (dual tone) flash, 1/3” sensor size, simultaneous video and image recording, geo-tagging, face detection, HDR, and 4K video recording support. The secondary cam has a 2.1 MP sensor.
