LG G3 is not a waterproof smartphone, but just as the case was with other hot new Android devices that were dunked in water despite not being water-resistant, a user wanted to see how the G3 fares in the event of unexpected water accidents. As such, he submerged the phone under water in an extensive test.
LG’s G3 sets the new benchmark for overpowered smartphones
If it were a laptop, its Quad HD resolution would be impressive. If it were a camera, its laser autofocus would be an advantage. But the LG G3 is a smartphone, and as such, it’s the most advanced one we’ve seen yet. If you are the sort of person who values top-end specs above all else, LG is ready for you.
Like the G2 before it, the G3’s front is almost all screen. Thanks to thin bezels on all sides, almost 77 percent of the device’s footprint is occupied by its 5.5-inch IPS display. With a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and such an aggressively minimal design, the G3 fits a lot of pixels into not a lot of space. LG’s new handset is as tall as HTC’s 5-inch One and Sony’s 5.2-inch Xperia Z2, while being lighter than both. The sense of extreme efficiency is pervasive with this phone.
LG reveals the LG G3
If you didn’t watch yesterday’s live event in the UK, here’s the news: LG’s new flagship phone is a beast.
- 5.5-inch 1440p IPS Display
- Quad-core Snapdragon 801 Processor
- Up to 3GB of RAM
- Up to 32GB of Storage +MicroSD Slot
- 13 MP Camera, featuring a laser autofocus system (the first of its kind on smartphones)
LG upped the ante quite a bit, especially with its Smart Notice personal assistant that’s baked into the OS:
LG has redesigned its Android UI along these lines and added a new Smart Notice service that works much like Google Now. It’ll remind you to call someone back, nag you to uninstall unused apps, and make timely recommendations like “you may want to take an umbrella today since it will rain this evening.” It’s these natural language capabilities that LG believes will set Smart Notice apart from other personal assistant software.
The device is available today in South Korea, while the rest of the world will get it in June. As is the case every year, there’s a lot of choices if you’re in the running for a new phone.
