LG G3 is an impressive Android phone launched some years ago, in 2014, having a high-tech Quad-Core processing unit speeding at 2500 megahertz, a really big 5.5-inches multi touch capacitive display, a 13 mega-pixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 megapixels front facing camera. We will get a better understanding of this cellphone's specs when we get into deeper details.

LG decided to design this cellphone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AC chip, packing an extremely powerful Quad-Core processor running at 2500 MHz with a big 3 GB RAM. Graphic rendering often consume lots of CPU time, so it also uses a 450 megahertz Adreno 330 GPU to help the CPU with those tasks. This cellphone counts with an excellent 32 GB internal storage memory and a slot for external memory cards, more than enough to install tons of apps, games, photos and videos without even thinking about filling it.

LG has made an excellent job making the LG G3 weight just 5.26 ounces. This cellphone is offerred in a wide range of colors, black, purple, pink, white and gold. Even though this phone is only 5.76" long, it manages to hold a 5.5 inches screen. The LG G3 has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.35 inches.

This cellphone has a great 5.5 inches screen with a 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) resolution, which makes everything look perfect. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 450 candela/m2 and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This phone provides wi-fi connection (which it can share with other devices acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance connection type and also HSPA+ internet connection, which is a bit slower 4G type and 3G fast connectivity, using HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Micro SIM card to connect to GSM networks.

This cellphone features two cameras, a 13 MP back facing camera and a 2.1 megapixels front facing camera. Though it's 13 mega-pixels might appear incredible the back facing camera has a very little 0.326797 inches sensor which makes pictures have less details and worse lighting than you would expect. The LG G3 also films 3840x2160 4K videos at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also counts with lots of interesting characteristics like flash, fast burst mode, auto-focus, face detection shooting, optical image stabilization, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

The LG G3 uses a high capacity 3000 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery, which isn't very promising for a cellphone like this. LG claims this cellphone has a stand by time of 548 hours and a talk time of 19 hs.

This cellphone also features lots of useful features like Wireless charger compatibility, NFC, Infrared Port, Bluetooth, GPS (Global Positioning System) and Radio, and plenty of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The LG G3 is a wonderful phone and it costs $ 190, quite close to other same level cellphones. The LG G3 is definitely the right one for you no matter if you love photography, will use it as a gaming cellphone, need a phone mostly for internet broswing and social networks or will use it for work.
