LG G3 Stylus (D690) Review & Specs

LG G3 Stylus is a mid level cellphone launched some years ago, in 2014, packing a fast 1.3 GHz Quad-Core processing unit, an enormous 5.5″ screen, and two cameras, a 13 MP back camera and a 1.3 MP front camera.

LG equipped the LG G3 Stylus with a great performance 1300 MHz Quad-Core processing unit, bundled in a MediaTek MT6582 system chip with 1 GB RAM. Helping with graphic intensive apps and games, the LG G3 Stylus also counts with an ARM Mali-400 MP2 GPU speeding at 416 megahertz. The LG G3 Stylus has aquite big 8 GB internal storage and a slot for an SD memory card, allowing you to install hundreds of games and applications without worrying about space.

This phone feels much lighter than what one would think about a cellphone like this. This device is just 5.88 inches long and 2.99 inches wide, but it still manages to hold a 5.5″ display. This device’s thickness (0.4 inches) is a little far from today’s standards, but it still feels in the hand. This phone is available in three different color options, black, white and gold.

This device is equipped with two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.3 megapixels front camera. It can also capture videos in 1920×1080 (Full HD) at 30 frames per second. The camera also includes a few good features like auto-focus, flash, optical image stabilization, geo tagging and smile detection shooting.

LG packed the LG G3 Stylus with a good level 5.5″ screen, and a resolution of 960 x 540 , giving this cellphone a regular graphic quality. This screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch gestures.

This device packs a high capacity 3000 mAh Li-Ion replaceable battery, enough to provide the LG G3 Stylus with an incredible battery life.

This cellphone offers wifi connection (although it can’t be provided to other devices as a mobile hotspot), HSPA+ 4G internet connection, which is not so fast as LTE-A or LTE 4G networks or fast 3G data connection, using HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone uses two Micro SIM cards so it’s able to work with 2 different phone numbers and even different carriers.

This phone also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (allows communication with other devices, computers and accessories), GPS Localization and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

If you want a social phone, you will probably love this cellphone. This phone includes USB Data Cable, Charger, Stereo Ear Microphone and Quick Start Guide.
