The LG G3 is LG's 2014 flagship device, and one of the first smartphones on the market with LG's 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display. It features a Snapdragon 801 chipset clocked 2.5GHz, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, a 13 megapixel camera with a 2.1 megapixel front camera, and more.

This is LG's first phone that is made with metal, though it isn't entirely metal -- there's a metal coating placed atop a traditional plastic chassis. The device launched with Android 4.4.2 and LG's Smart User Experience.

The Good
  • Graceful design
  • Gorgeous Quad HD display
  • Top-notch hardware and refined user experience
  • 13MP camera with laser autofocus
The Bad
  • Still no customizable shortcuts for rear button
  • Would be nice to see Google Now integration in LG’s cards widget
Overall: 4.75/5
