I write this going from my beloved LG G2. I umm'd and arrr'd for a long time when LG announced the G3. Would it be worth it? YES!!!
I thought the size difference would be quite noticeable but it isn't. Don't get me wrong, it is a big phone but quite surprisingly it is so easy to hold and doesn't seem overly large like the Galaxy Note range. The camera is very good. It focuses extremely quickly courtesy of the laser focus and has just three extra modes such as panorama, dual focus and magic focus. The latter I have had a little trouble with but that is probably user error. The speed of the phone in general is very fast. I must admit though that I didn't notice too much difference… Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly Recommended, 9 July 2014
I have been without a camera for a while as I tend to use my smartphone but decided to go back to a dedicated camera. My last camera was the superb Sony Cybershot HX9 and was always going to be a hard act to follow. So far the Ixus has performed well. The wifi function is a welcome addition as it makes it oh so easy to transfer pictures to my iPad on the move. The NFC function is a little disappointing as you still need to change the wifi connection on your smartphone before it'll connect. In no way is this a deal breaker, I just thought it'd be a one-touch affair. The pictures I've taken are mostly outdoors and are of a very high quality. Even at maximum (optical) zoom the clarity is top… Read more
