lg-g3-phone-002

The LG G3 is the culmination of LG’s 2 years winning-run in the Android market. As the tip of the spear of LG’s smartphone line, the G3 brings its share of high-impact features, and it is undeniable that its 2560×1440 5.5″ display will set the pace for the reminder of the year. The G3 design was built with the goal of providing users with more screen real estate, while at the same time keep the look and feel or a 5″ phone.

Those are seemingly two conflicting goals, but LG has managed to leverage its back-side physical interface to create a phone that was devoid of Home button, opening the possibility of a great screen-to-body ratio.

There are however a number of critical question that need to be answered: does the awesome screen resolution affect battery life? Does it really feel like a phone and not a “phablet”? Is it worth having such high details on a phone? This review will cover all of this, and a little bit more. Let’s dive.

Context

Before I jump right into the review, let me quickly tell you what I do with my phones. My main use is text communications (Email, SMS, Hangout, Viber) and social networks (mainly Facebook). I have 10-15 apps that I use on a regular basis to pay taxis, parking and of course the unavoidable maps, restaurant finders, etc.… I don’t actually play games on my phones, but I enjoy checking one out every once in a while. Video streaming happens from time to time, especially in bed, but I rarely buy movies to watch offline since the laptop or tablet would be better for that.
