1>very disappointed with INTERNAL MEMEORY just 3.7gb for user availability.
2>lg UI bit laggy.
3>sound from SPEAKER grill is nice but distorted if play electronica or rock genre but overall speaker quality is good n loud( could be pros.. too :D)
4>very noisy CAMERA if u click indoor or in low light.
in my opinion the over its a very nice phone which include everything. I personally love it for my music listening, movie watching call and wifi. Very please with this phone at this budget point. plus its could have atleast 1.5gb RAM though lg manage good ram management but still it should had atleast 1.5gb RAM
As GSMarena don't review lg phones so i do the honour (rofl) it's been ages i was waiting for this phone review and at last i brought this phone on my own risk but damn happy with my phone at least its best in fulfilling my basic need i.e good music quality, call clarity display, build quality n ergonomics. I hope this would help u guys.

I don't care if they are going down what i like about lg is they way they make there phone its like when i put it on my hand it seems like i have everything in a 5 inch golden stylish and simple phone
I have tried the s4, the g2 and the iphone4 but i can't feel there quality
Why do you really heat this phone?. Why did you even buy this if you heat it.almost all of you say that this phone sucks. is it just me?. I like the camera i haven't even experienced a grainy photo.
yes its a little bit loading
But can be fixed look its simple its. Let me define you
Lg g3 beat
Lg g3 beat-is a phone that has normal quality phone good camera a mid range phone that has little bit of lag. It is stylish and has many handy specs that other phones don't have for a 250$ phone its really great it not a low end it is a normal mid range phone
It has half the specs of its brother the lg g3.bro like there motto simplicity is the new beauty. It is capable of gaming has a good display and gas a good sound i love tgere built in pitch and speed for me it has everything i need for a mid range phone. You can edit your home touch button keyboard height can be edited and more its a good phone the only thing i don't like is the l.3 megapixel front facing cam
After owning this phone for 9 months it is poor constantly have to take the battery out and back in to speed the phone up, not sure which Android to buy next coin toss between a HTC A9 or a Nexus 5X
made a big mistake should never have bought LG g3 Beat it has the same hardware as the Lg g2 mini and Lg L90 all of them are still on Android 5.0.2 even though they were released at different times no wonder Lg is suffering losses they have no vision
Mearl23, 17 Oct 2015Is there a NFC in lg g3s (lg D724 dual sim)? I can't find it....Yes thereis NFC on board
Please don't buy this phone, you will regret it! Go with a nexus 5x instead.
Anonymous, 20 Sep 2015It has 8Mp camera. Where from you got 13?no, the cell phone has 13 MP camera is the LG and LG G3 G3 S has 8MP camera
cfj the android kid, 07 Oct 2015What makes you think that the phone's sound is bad. It has an eqalizer and has a strong voice ... moreFor anyone who has never used LG phones it can be a jarring experience i had a Sony and i would have bought one again if it was within my budget LG will lose even more market share if it doesnt update older devices those released in 2014 to Marshmallow hardcore Lg fans wont be able to stop its downfall
arnab, 04 Oct 2015absolutely dislike the LG Android 5.0 UX interface in LG g3 beat very bland almost childish i... moreWhat makes you think that the phone's sound is bad. It has an eqalizer and has a strong voice bear in mind that every phone has its specialty second it has a lazer auto focus now how is that. And bro it is not all about the pixels it also matters what kind of phone do you have. And for a phone like that it already has it. But ut is not the phone that has the problem it is you that has a problem you are only looking at the mistakes of the phone and not the good once try to apriciat it for some time bro and you will learn to love it
AnonD-398826, 05 Oct 2015I didn't want to spend a lot of money but I wanted something with at least a 5 inch screen. I ... moreThat is where you are wrong bro you just need to go to the hidden setting just serch it on the internet if you keep on cleaning your phone of course it gets lagy s5 is a big mistake.
it will get laggy when you cleann its app history because when you clean it those apps will restart thats why it gets laggy it maybe you just edited your animation scale. Don't. And if your turning back to lg then thats you biggest mistake
it is normal for it to get laggy every phone has it not only g3 even galaxy s6 believe me i know it. You dont need s5 and another issu of the s5 is that it has a bad camera it is also a bit laggy. But bro it is not anoyying to have a red led all the time if it makes you get pist off then just turn it off bro and you dont also need to have a color full led to know that you have notification
-Peace out enjoy your g3s bro
Nikhil Newhale, 23 Sep 20158 GB in total.... - 4.29 GB of System Data - 3.52 GB of apps - Spotify --> 56.59MB ... moreMake partition to SD card with partition magic wiz, use link 2sd, set installation to internal.
I didn't want to spend a lot of money but I wanted something with at least a 5 inch screen. I decided on this because it was 4G capable and had a removable battery and it was $250AUD which was a good price. I had bought a $130 phone last year and it was terrible. I didn't want to buy another cheap phone but I couldn't afford a $500+ phone. I was comparing it with the Motorola Moto G 2nd Gen and that didn't have a removable battery so that's why I went with the LG G3 S (Beat).
After having it about 4 months, these are the cons - not enough space. I have about 30 apps and ran out of space, even though I've got a 16GB memory card because you can't move everything onto the SD card. I tried deleting and moving as much as I could but the 8GB internal space is taken up with 4.22 GB Apps and the system data 3.24GB. I only have 100MB photos and videos, Audio - 144mb and downloads 552KB. That is tiny so its not my photos and docs taking up all the room.
And it is laggy sometimes. It might be because I have hardly any internal space left, but if I want to have 30 apps, I should be able to.
This would be a good phone for someone who doesn't have a lot of apps, like 10 - 20. I am getting a Samsung S5 soon with 16GB of internal memory so hopefully I'll be able to have all my apps.
Another issue is the notifications tray, you swipe to dismiss notifications and they come back again. And the LED light is red. So its red when its charging, red when you get a message etc. That is a bit annoying.
Apart from those issues, its a good phone. Its a good size, easy to use.
