Final review after using an LG G3 D855 for 18 months.
Build Quality is great, thin, decent weight, headphone jack at the bottom.
Screen is great. Even tho the contrast & brightness isn't high as amoled screens, you cant ignore the QHD resolution. Have you played the two LG QHD videos? No 1080p screen looks better and the colours are amazing. Have to mention lower res video may not be the same.
Peformance is smooth. Gaming is quite good handles everything fine. Marshmellow improves it even more. Phone will heat up if you use it at high brightness for extended gaming.
Software is great. Keyboard can be resized. Dual window is cool.
Speaker is amazing! Loud clear quality & the headphones is unlike anything you've heard.
Camera is amazing. It really shines in the night time. Its rival the S5 cant compete.
This phone is amazing but it does have it faults. The truth is it can do everything you want and need from a phone at a cheaper price. For the samung fans yes that amoled has high contrast but test it against a QHD video and see!!!
Hello everybody. Testing the phone with CPU-Z i accidentally found that it has integrated barometer. I installed an barometer app and it really works. Hope that information is useful.
Mustach, 09 Apr 2016Download LG PC Suite, choose G3 and thats it. ;)Mustach thanks a lot bud. Did the update day before yesterday. Radical improvement from lollipop. Im using D855 Indian variant.
The One, 10 Apr 2016G3 have 2k screen (1440p) while S5 have FullHD screen (1080p)
G3 have laser assisted focus wi... moreAbout the screen, you just restricted it to resolution ,yep g3 has 2k resolution and s5 is fullhd but you should know that fullhd is quite enough ,g3 has sharper display but in contrast ,colors and viewing angels it lose to s5 terribly ,the display of g3 is colorless which I count it as worst part of g3.
About the camera g3 has a very good camera but s5 has better one both in good light and low light both in still and camcorder ,maybe you didn't know how to take pictures with your s5,
About software both have their problems and to like one of them is a matter of taste in this regard I like sony ui much better,
S5 doesn't have overheating problem as he which is the biggest problem of g3
And again battery of s5 is better
Now I don't know with what logic you say g3 is better if you're not a blinded fan
I have g3 for 5 month before it I had sony z3 which my brother liked it and we exchange our phones ,I want buy a new one ,g5 battery disappointed me so I'll wait to see sony x flagship and compare it with s7 and note 6
I updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow my LG G3 32GB D855 in RO , via LG PC Suite on 2016-04-08. Works smoothly, menu is more intuitive and user friendly.
AnonD-237389, 07 Apr 2016I still say s5 is better than g3,a lot better screen a stronger camera,a better battery and no... moreG3 have 2k screen (1440p) while S5 have FullHD screen (1080p)
G3 have laser assisted focus with OIS intergrated while S5 does not have anything except larger pixels (16MP compared to G3 that have only 13MP)
G3 updated to UX4 in Marshmallow update while S5 keep the same touchwiz interface although been updated several times. This is one thing i really hate about Samsung!
The only pros in S5 is waterproof! Otherwise, G3 is better than S5 in all aspect..
If you think i'm a LG fanboy, nope! You're wrong, I use S5 and totally regret for the phone..
larger megapixel with blurry images doesn't make any sense and doesn't mean your camera is better too..
AnonD-385367, 08 Apr 2016Can anyone tell what's the procedure to manually update G3 to marshmallow? D855 version?Download LG PC Suite, choose G3 and thats it. ;)
phone is incredible...screen, speed...few tricks like speeding up transition times, limit apps to wifi unless needed...clean caches manually...screen takes most battery...put brightness up only to show off 4k screen, or to game and watch movies royally, ahhh, this is where it shines....battery can last 10-12 hours on moderate usage...battery saver can be set to go past this though...if you keep up proper maintenance as above...get a good case...extra battery...64-128 gb mem card = heaven...still stands up to s6 and s7 except camera options lacking, but adequate for normal user...this too..can be remedied with a good camera app....5 stars...only manufacturer with the balls to go toe-to-toe with samsung...2014 phone of the year...still took last year in my opinion with g4 and v10....if you used android since 2.2...you know how to get the most out of your phone....get familiar...lol
Does anyone have any issues running VPN apps on the G3? I have the D855 version and for the past couple of days I have tried using several VPNs. I've used a lot of the most popular ones as well as some new ones and every single one of them stops running after a minute or so.... Has anyone had this issue and found a solution?
