LG G3 stunned a lot of people by bringing in lazer assisted autofocus. Thy hype turned into a damp squib when it was known that this is available only in still photography and not in video recording. It is so easy to tap and focus in still photography that it is dumb achievement if it is available only in still photography. One has all the time to touch and focus while in 'still photography'. If the same was in fast frame video it would have been awesome. People are very discerning, considering the specs of this phone it has not generated immense interest.It is thumbs down even with optical image stabilization. Perhaps it is difficult to achieve auto focus in fast moving video.
Hayalet, 15 Sep 2014Is that so? I guess people's massive interest in Sony Z3 compact is just a misdirection, they ... moreFlagships define the trend, if there was no massive interest for 5+ inchers flagships would be smaller. Current trend that sells is big screens, alternatives are available for people like you, but you are not majority, you are alternative.

I guess people's massive interest in Sony Z3 compact is just a misdirection, they will buy this phone instead. There is no "everyone", dont be absurd. Z3 compact is the ideal phone. I wish LG made a similar phone. Well unfortuantely when i buy a phone i go with it long enough. IF LG ever makes a similar phone it wouldn't matter if i had already bought Z3, cos i won't come back to LG. I will wait a couple of months at least for an announcement out of LG, if there is none i will buy Z3 compact. It's been years i am waiting, no more waiting.

afraaa, 06 Sep 2014u need to wake up i guess .. even motorola came by 5 inch . 5 inch is one hand operative if be... moreNo.. LG needs to wake up. I don't care if LG's 5" is other companies' 4.7". Best phone is 4.5-4.6 I said 4.7 because LG makes screen fit more efficiently. Look at Sony Z3 compact. If LG won't make a similar phone i am going to be a Sony customer. Out of necessity, not because i want to. LG is just trying to IMPOSE big screen on its customers. I am not buying a big screen. Neither lots of people. There is a guy at LG who develops .... marketing. flashless camera, always big screen.. etc etc. There is a huge market waiting for a decent 4.5-4.6" phone. You'll see.

Why not ... moreu need to wake up i guess .. even motorola came by 5 inch . 5 inch is one hand operative if bezel shtinks .. and lg is the best in that one . this phone with 5 inch is same size as samsung devices with 4.7 inch or even motoral 4.7 inches .
because of big bezel on other phones . did u tried nexus 5 ?
One word: Useless. Another 5 inch phone. Why? There are many new phones at that size. Why not make a 4.5-4.7 720p phone? Wake up LG! I will never buy a 5" phone, neither a lot of people. I am still using LG P970, waiting for a decent one-hand usable phone. Because i am an LG fan. But i am really tired of waiting. Seems like LG doesn't think we are worthy custmers. May be it is time to switch to a different company. I can't even find an e-mail to contact LG..
ok nice mid range device from LG with 5 inch screen.
Nothing wrong with this people. Go back to your flag ship cyanogen modded super phones if you dont agree.
leave the page.
i wish the G3 MINI would be;
2 gig ram
16 gb onboard
13 mp camera
processor: i dont krait care dragon S99999 24 core
changeable Battery 2800 mAh
micro sd 64 gb
Very disappointing with this G3 Mini. Lower in much kind of all specs. I am waiting this phone before but seems not worth it. Damn!
Could you please specify if the battery removable or non removable in the spec sheet please. I've noticed it mentioned on some other devices. I think you should have a separate field for this feature so that we can do a search based on whether a phone has a removable battery
somehow it's ok cause
the specs are more like that of a "mini" of "lite" versions of high-end lg smartphones...but since there's the "G3" in it's name,it sure was quite dissapointing.
I hope that this specifications is wrong like the batt. is too low, no gorilla glass protection, low processor and high price. I hope LG would do something for that.
For the price should have 16 storage and 2 gigs RAM and low 1.3 mp front facing camera and low quad-core 1.2 and adreno 305 (Nokia 530 have adreno 305)
