Currently there are many smartphone top models from different manufacturers and with each new device it is more difficult to introduce great innovations. But next to theGalaxy S5, the Xperia Z2 or the iPhone 5s, the LG G3 with high-end technology wants to conquer the hearts of the users.
Even the look at the data sheet reveals that the G3 is equipped with all the new features that distinguish today’s smartphones. Compared to Samsung and Apple, LG has however renounced a fingerprint sensor. The device also does not need it, since it can be adequately protected with the knock code function.
What the LG G3 has to offer in Electronicsmatter.com, I’ve looked at my test very precisely.
Standard Accessories & Good Operating Aids
Even the unpacking of the gold-beige packaging is fun and increases the anticipation on theG3. The scope of delivery includes standard accessories such as power supply, microUSB cable, quad-heads headset and user manual. This is definitely praiseworthy to mention as it provides a good guide for the first UX user interface; Even smartphone beginners are not in the rain. The “Smart Tips”, which are located directly on the G3 and are called up by clicking on the start screen on the left, are connected to the analogue guide.
Great Smartphone For Big Hands
The processing of the device is very successful. Although the G3 is made of plastic, however, no cracking is heard and thanks to the metal-coated back it feels very high-quality. The display is almost borderless and occupies 76.4 percent of the front. The corners are rounded, which makes the smartphone very well in the hand.
With 5.5 inch display size is talk of Phablet rather than of smartphone-therefore I advise you to watch the device live before the purchase. Because 5.5 inches are already quite large and were difficult for my rather small women’s hands to handle; The phone has almost slipped out of my hand and fell to the ground. In addition, the G3 fits just in the pants pocket. Whether this is negative or not is purely subjective, which is why I do not interpret the magnitude as a point of criticism.
Finally, the large display also offers many advantages – for example, a clearer view of navigation, surfing and viewing of photos. Due to the knock-on and knock-code function, the power button and the volume button are located on the back. LG has also improved here: the keys are no longer as in the G2, but were installed flush with the back. In addition, the battery can be replaced.
Sharp Screens & Natural Colors
The LG G3 has a quad-HD display with a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 pixels and a pixel density of 538 dots per inch. In addition, it can offer with a brightness of 474 candelas per square meter-unfortunately no outstanding value.
LG’s familiar IPS display provides good viewing angle stability. Also the contrast is very good and the colors are reproduced, of course.
Strong Processor&Full Voice Quality
The 2.5 gigahertz quad-core processor of the G3 is supported depending on the model of 2 or 3 gigabytes of memory. The equipment leaves nothing to be desired in terms of speed.There are neither ruckers nor crashes. Only when playing the appliance is warm in the upper area; But also other top models develop heat in demanding processes.
Regarding the connection, I had neither in the UMTS network nor in the GSM network problems. Even in the subway the connections were quite passable. Only the voice quality is too quiet for me; Here the LG G2 delivered much better results.
Top Photos Without Shake
Especially the testing of the camera was fun. Especially if you do not need DSLR in everyday life, the LG G3 is a good alternative. The built-in laser autofocus measures the distance to the subject, and thanks to the OiS+image stabilizer minimizes the risk of blurred pictures. This has really fascinated me, because even the photos, which I shot from the bus, are clear and without wiggle.
Especially in daylight you can make great shots and even in difficult lighting conditions in the evening or at night the quality of the pictures is still in order. Portrait photographs are supported by the photolight with different color temperatures; So the photographer looks very natural and does not look cheesy-pale.
Overview Launcher&Clever Lg Apps
The G3 comes with Android 4.4. It is to be hoped that, unlike its predecessors, LG is more willing to update. In addition, there are still clever manufacturer apps on board.
In Summary: “UX Launcher”
The user interface “UX” has been completely reworked compared to the previous model, the icons no longer seem to be more powerful and restless, making the operation even more intuitive. The notification center was also purged, which makes it look really nice. Especially in this area, LG has made the leap to the top models of other manufacturers; Previously, the user interface was handy, but came rather clumsy.
For Fitness: “LG Health”
If you wipe from the start view to the left, reaches her “LG Health”. With this program, you can track your activities like walking, biking, running, walking or inline skating and also monitor how often you move during the day and how many kilocalories are burned. Here you can also switch GPS. This is not absolutely necessary for walking, because your steps are also counted without the setting. This is probably due to the acceleration sensor, but more detailed information can not be found.
For all other activities it is worthwhile to activate GPS, because you can show on the map which route you have covered. Especially during cycling the program convinced me completely-in addition to the total distance in kilometers, the kilocalories used and the average speed are displayed.
Before “LG Health” can be fully utilized, you must indicate your age, gender, height and weight. From this, an activity goal in the form of kilocalories and number of steps is calculated.
“LG Health” is quite a useful program for people who have the goal to move more. However, the program can not compete with fitness bracelets, because these are much better to use due to their size and do not lose their way in the water.
Clever Assistant: “Smart Notice”
If you want to keep an overview in all situations, “Smart Notice” is perhaps just right for you.The app reminds you of everything that is important – be it the information to drink enough on hot days or make a callback in case of missed calls. So you can focus on the essentials and do not forget anything important. If the functionality of the app goes too far, you can remove the link from the Homescreen.
Top Smartphone, Top Photos & Smart Software
I can warmly recommend the LG G3. With the combination of strong hardware and clever software as well as the improved user interface, LG can definitely keep up with the smartphone flagship of the other manufacturers.
Especially the camera did it to me; With this, very good photos are possible, which go beyond snapshot quality.
The only weakness is the lack of voice, but LG has really brought a top smartphone on the market.
If you want to take a picture of the G3, you can order it with 16 GB memory from 499 Euro in the Cyberport webshop.
