LG G3 is Chockfull of Features Minus the Bloat Ware

0

LG is known for bringing great phones, and the new G3 flagship phone adds one more feather to its legacy.

If you are looking out for a phone packed with features, this is the one to get. The design is smart and industrial, and the battery life is stellar. Also, a lot of the bloatware has been left out this time.

Display

The phone is slim at a thickness of 0.35 inches and covered with a metallic glaze, offering a premium look despite being plastic. At least, the material choice is an improvement on faux leather used by other devices. You can remove the cover and access the battery as well. Also, there is a microSD slot for expanding storage and a port for your SIM card that you can access at the back. It is bigger than average phones, but still easy to hold in a single hand.

The screen is 5.5 inches and comes with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels, with an excellent 534 ppi. LG has managed to offer a larger display, without increasing the size of the phone too much. The Quad HD feature is good for watching video content on HD.

Fit for Power Hungry Users

The phone offers a RAM of 3GB and is powered by a 2.5 GHz, quad-core, Qualcomm Snapdragon, 801 processor. It comes with a built-in storage of 32 GB, with another model offering 16 GB storage and a RAM of 2 GB. The battery is powered at 3000 mAh and can support the pixels and the RAM of the phone. This is because the battery life is enhanced with the use of the adaptive technology used by LG for the display. Its proprietary technology is known as 3A, and it reduces the power usage of the phone, depending on the content used. It adapts the frame rate, the processor clocking, and the display driver. Due to this, even the 1440 pixels of the display will only draw power equivalent to a 1080 pixels display, so that battery can be preserved.

Camera – Basic Features

Only the basic features are offered in the camera of the G3. There aren’t many control options, and the phone adjusts automatically while you take pictures. You don’t have to fuss around with buttons or toggles on this device. The rear camera has a resolution of 13 MP, with a video resolution of 3840 x 2160 at 30 fps. The infrared focusing feature results in quicker focus and snapping images. The front camera is 2.1 MP, with a beautify feature for blurring blemishes or wrinkles.

Easy User Interface 

The interface has been remodeled, which is a welcome change. It has been layered over 4.4 KitKat (Android) and has a few of the stock Android features, such as the OK Google from the home screen.

Pros

The Guest Mode is one of the best features, as it allows friends to borrow your phone. It comes with limited applications and can be accessed with a different code from your lock screen.

Cons

The phone comes with a single speaker, which is rather a disappointment, as it struggles with sound emitting from the back of the device.
