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.
absolutely dislike the LG Android 5.0 UX interface in LG g3 beat very bland almost childish interface fonts are terrible the music player is worse doesn't come close to Sony or Samsung and camera is the worst 8MP camera there is, grainy picture quality hoping a UX 4.0 update with android 6.0 will make things better......
Security patch of 93mb is available. Its probably the stagefright fix.
just got an update n INDIA v20b about 93mb size for lg g3 beat don't know what changed except drive space which has increased by 300-400 mb the version still is stuck on 5.0.2 eagerly waiting for marshmallow android 6.0 hopefully LG won't disappoint ..........

I'm using LG G3 s and In the beginning everthing was perfect. but after two weeks I got a problem with my camera it captures pictures very slowly and does not respond fast. it is my biggest problem right now. and i saw it is not only my problem some my friends also having this kind of problem with same phone. can someone help me to solve it? But I don't want to sell it cuz I liked it
My friend has this phone, and after just a few months complaining that it is already lagging despite using it just for calls, messages and photo taking.
8 GB in total....

Every other app i cant delete (literaly). I have no space even to upgrade the existing apps. I have an SD card which is worthless because phone doesn't let me move the apps there.
Im tired of the "storage space running out" and having to delete whatsapp images (because i can't move them to SD card) every 3 days or so.
Someone can help me?
Shockingly bad phone. Not much smaller than the g3 but sporting horrible hardware specs in comparison. Operating system is slow and stalls often, internal memory is terrible.
My notification led is on despite I have it off in the settings. Everytime I receive a call the led flashes. Please help., Thanks...
Beside this issue it is the best ever phone I have used so far...
my favorite phone lg g3s because everything is perfect.camera.net speed.display.battery backup.stylish.ossam phone.
Shahab, 19 Aug 2015When you have problem with FB messenger so tab on it and start the app with this your problem ... moreIts not the solution for my problem because my chatheads are closing when I open some other app. On home screen they work just fine but when I open chrome or fb app or instagram or any other, chathead just dissapear..
Updated to lollipop and did a factory reset....restored backed up apps....working better than before love my LG g3 beat
Good unit size
Nice screen resolution
Nice 13mpx camera and flash
I installed Zero desktop menu and it look as my personal wish that I configured
In general good buy, only that Samsung devices have more user satisfying facts even with the same OS version
PLZ REPLY QUICK, 28 Aug 2015are lg g3 beat and this one same? i mean ,does lg g3s another name for g3 beatYes
This is not a smartphone. Its only function is to infuriate the user. It finds it impossible to connect to the internet, even when connected to a very good WiFi network. If it was any slower the user would be dead before it loaded an app. Whoever at LG thought it would be a good idea to put this useless piece of garbage on the market must have been high at the time. Basically steer well clear of this lump of crap, if you know of someone thinking of purchasing it slap some sense into them.
