When it comes to gadget purchases i can be an impulsive guy. I see the one that catches my eye and I prone to buy it without hesitation ( of course going through the early reviews ). This exactly is one of the reasons I have two many of them and I just love living with them. Given my history ( Reviews on Amazon ) please do not be surprised that I now am a proud owner of the LG G3 ( my 4th phone in less then 12 months ) and ready to share my thoughts with the wider community. Let's get into it without wasting anymore time.
Build Quality --> Top Notch ( 5/5 )
Build quality has never been LG's biggest asset. I don't remember the last time LG carved out a flagship phone with top build quality. G2 was ok but not the best built phone of 2013. Well welcome to LG of 2014 and we have a sturdy and quality handset in the form of LG G3. The chassis at the back of the G3 almost catches you by surprise as if it was metal. Well they deceptively have been able to make it look like that & the brushed metallic finish on a polycarbonate body almost matches that of the HTC One M8. It's the best finish to a plastic back I have ever witnessed & experienced. Kudos to LG for making something so profound & elegant. It makes you feel why Samsung couldn't achieve all that despite of having a bigger stature then LG in the Android world. Despite of the metallic finish it surprisingly doesn't attract any finger prints plus it gives you a very reassuringly comfortable non slippery grip. Even the feel to the volume rocker and power button has been much improved too. IR blaster sits at the very top right side of the phone and 3.Read more ›
Design and Build 5/5
One thing to really take into account is THIS PHONE IS BIG. You probably won't be able to reach the top of the screen with your thumb. However you don't need to do this often in android anyway. The only time you frequently have to reach the top of the screen is to expand notifications, and you can actually add a button for this (like in my pictures). Within a week you'll be completely used to it.
Instead of using plastic like Samsung, which feels cheap, or using metal like HTC, which is heavy, LG have opted for a middle-ground: plastic with metallic paint sprayed on top! It leaves no fingerprints and the grip is good.
The phone is quite compact for its screen size, which is partially due to LG having placed all its physical buttons on the back of the phone. This seems radical, but after you get used to it you won't want to go back. The double-tapping the screen turns it on, which solves the problem of waking it when face up on a surface.
The LG G3 has a microSD card slot allowing you to increase the capacity by up to 2TB.
The first ever device to use a QuadHD display, the LG G3 is beautifully crisp. However the legibility in sunlight and contrast are a little poor. The colours aren't as vibrant and in your face as with a Samsung display, but personally I prefer it like this. The screen doesn't get darker at an angle so watching with others works fine.
I've now had Android 5.0 lollipop running on this phone since around the 20th of December.Read more ›
Right now for me the G3 ticks all the boxes for my use. The screen is immense both in resolution and size..... almost no bezel wasted space either side and the display is pin sharp and crystal clear.
I am a heavy email user and I find that the stock email app works perfectly with no need to download 3rd party apps. Likewise the stock Calendar app is perfect for my use. I love the LG keyboard, which can be adjusted in height and layout. The 'swipe' typing is as good as swiftkey (IMHO).
Despite being plastic the device has a quality feel about it, I don't have large hands and I can easily hold this in one hand but it does realistically need 2 handed operation.
For me one of the big plus points are the rear mounted buttons ..... a great idea and quite easy to get used to. The stock LG underlying software seems to be well thought out and mostly adds benefit to the base OS.
Camera is great ..... rivals the iPhone (for my use) .... I have just returned from a holiday and was very pleased with what I took.
The only minor negative is that due to work I have an enforced PIN lock from exchange (this applies whatever handset I use) with the G3 I cannot adjust the volume or move to silent without unlocking. A minor point that I can live with.
An all-round great handset and good value
