G3 is tough! Today, as I do every Saturday I am free, I went for a run, listening to music on my LG G3 over Spotify through Bluetooth headphones. As I speeded up near the end, the music stopped! I thought the 3G signal had died and went to grab my phone, but it had gone! I doubled back and another person was in the process of picking it up. It had flown out of my pocket and landed on muddy rocks. And then it happened again right near the end! There are scratches on the plastic rear, but the screen and other important parts are fine. It could be luck it didn't land on a rock screen down! But I'm very impressed because I was running very fast and jumping over puddles, so it must have flow out at speed!
(The front is untouched so I admit, I was lucky, but I'm buying an arm strap for my next run anyway!)
Great phone BTW, massively under hyped and if you don't need a stylus (Note 4) or water resistance (Z3) - both great phones too, the G3 is lovely to hold and operate.
Some users comment by: are you more brilliant and knowledgeable in technology than the brands engineers.
I say YES some users understand more than them because we have practically used the phone(and dozens others...) for different tasks, their perspectives are different than ours.
Brands engineers do tests and more... but don't forget that the company give them a certain budget to keep strict at when making a phone.
So when LG want to sell the phone outside the US for $650-700, it will want to take in consideration the creation cost...etc
Just as there are low cost phones that mean lower specs, the same for higher price phones equal to higher specs BUT it never mean that the company will have to make all specs high, or else the phone will cost too much maybe as Apple iPhone 6 plus sold stupidly at $1300!!! outside the US, buyers are more stupid to buy it at that price!!! Noting that the phones priced by Apple not related to high specs cost price but Apple brand name and stock price!!!!
About G3 Video recording, it's useless to have 2 K with 4K capable but the phone heats when using it.
Also, gives you the warning of 5 minute max. streak time!!
LG must have worked better on this point by maybe inserting a bigger battery than a normal one that is suitable for normal resolution, processor.....etc not this G3 new advancing specs in smartphones technology.
Trolls Spammers don't post here, you are rather ruining G3 LG reputation.
There's no smartphone on earth that lasts 2 days on heavy use, unless in your dictionary it's making/receiving some calls!!!!!
8 hours is mainly the max. period on heavy use.
Even Laptops, ipads...don't last more than that.
M feeling bad after buying this device not much impressive and when i play games its laging very much even small games like subway surface
Dream-buddy, 11 Oct 2014Save it in pan drive through OTGI am using G3. Ok?.
Dream-buddy, 11 Oct 2014Save it in pan drive through OTGYou cannot carry pendrive always. Keep that in mind. How will you backup when only the G2 is present?. Tell me. Please do not troll here supporting the mobiles without the memory card slot. Ok?.
Hello, I am hesitating a LOT if to buy this phone, because I am reading a lot of comments, that:
1) it gets quite hot
2) It has several bugs like deep sleep and restarting
3) The battery drains too fast
4) The screen contrast is not very good
PLEASE tell me if those are true or I should really get it ? Many thanks!
Dream-buddy, 10 Oct 2014Note 2 lag too much and camra is worse than note oneI am a basic to medium user of note 2 and G3. So I didn't find much difference between them. The colour concentration in the G3 display is less compared to my note 2. Thats the difference that I found out. Do not call me a samsung troll. I just told you the major differences that were found in my phones. Thats all. Ok?.
AnonD-269963, 10 Oct 2014yeah right , he may buy the 32gb which is enough ,btw u dont have to download every app found ... moreHow can you backup your personal data in the G2 without using PC or online methods?. Tell me. This is the occasion where the memory cards come into play. Hope you can understand.
Dream-buddy, 10 Oct 2014Note 2 lag too much and camra is worse than note oneI know that note 2 camera is worst. But I am using Nokia N8 for taking pictures since the camera clarity rocks. Still I am happy wiyh the flagship products of Nokia (5320 expressmusic, N79, 1280 and N8), Samsung N7100 and LG G3.
I am not coming to say that G3 is worst. It is better in the areas where my other phones are worst and vice versa. Thats all.
