LG G3 (Sprint) Review & Specs

LG G3 is a very complete cellphone released many years ago, having an extremely fast 2500 MHz Quad-Core processor, a huge 5.5″ multi touch display, and two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back facing camera and a 2.1 MP front camera. Let’s take a deeper look at what this cellphone can give us.

The LG G3 is offerred in many color variations: black, purple, pink, white and gold. This cellphone is much lighter than what one would expect from a cellphone of this size. This device is just 0.35 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest phone’s category. Even though this cellphone only has 5.76 inches long and 2.94 inches wide, it manages to contain a 5.5″ display.

LG equipped this phone with a great 2.5 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 8974-AC chip and a huge 3 GB RAM memory. Handling graphic calculations, this device also has a 450 MHz Adreno 330 graphics processing unit. A great advantage of this phone is its huge 32 GB internal memory and an SD memory slot, which allows you to install lots of apps, games, songs, pictures and videos without thinking about filling the phone.

This cellphone is equipped with a incredible 2560 x 1440 (Quad HD / 2K) 5.5-inches screen, which makes everything look brightful and colorful. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a very good 450 cd/m2 brightness and is multi-touch enabled.

This cellphone counts with Wi-Fi capability (which it can provide to other devices around, acting as a router or modem), LTE 4G high speed connectivity and also HSPA+ connectivity, that is a lower speed 4G variation or 3G fast connectivity, over HSDPA, HSUPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. The LG G3 works with a Micro SIM card for GSM carriers.

This phone features two cameras, a 13 megapixels back facing camera and a 2.1 megapixels front side camera. Though it’s 13 mega-pixels may sound incredible the back facing camera sensor size is quite small it takes darker photographs than it should. It also films videos in 3840×2160 (4K) at 30 fps. In addition, the camera features multiple great features like flash, auto-focus, fast burst mode, optical image stabilization, face detection shooting, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

The LG G3 uses a high capacity 3000 mAh Li-Ion removable battery, which isn’t too much for a phone like this. LG informs a 548 hs stand by time and a 19 hours talk time for this phone.

This phone also comes with many interesting features like Bluetooth (4.0), GPS (Global Positioning System), Infrared Port, NFC (Near Field Communication) and Radio, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

If you will use it as a gamer cellphone, want this cellphone to take tons of photos, are looking for a cellphone for work or are looking for a social phone, you will definitely be very satisfied with it.
