great phone of the year!
everything are great!
good battery life!
25 hours talk time
7 hours browsing
10 hours of video play
im excited to purchase g3!
The endurance also reflects stand-by, which is rather poor on the g2. Food thing LG fixed it here.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2014Check the updated battery tests for G2. After the KitKat update it got 81Hr endurance rating.Hmm, where? I am using the Tool to view battery results for all phones.
Best phone ever...camera, screen, speed, loudspeaker, looks, size,...everything is great. Can't wait to buy this one.
The essence of a smartphone is web browsing, 6hours is relatively poor. Could be improved but updates could only give a little lift.
Cool phone, but unfortunately nothing special. The battery os a disappointment. But overall its good but z2,s5 is a better choise imo.
GSMArena guys, can you please tell me, does european version of LG G3 have an FM radio? Thanks.

IPS type panels are more consistent than this so am wondering if there are firmware issues that resulted in poor IM/Battery life like a poor shoddy stock browser. This isn't an AMOLED to show this sort of disparity.
It should ideally not vary by more than 1 hr between video play back and browsing tests.

It's a trade off between weight and thickness.
I would sacrifice the thickness a bit and deal with the unwieldy thickness for the sake of battery life but that's just you and me who would be happy with that. LG are targeting the mass market. Majority are not heavy users like me so LG have an excuse plus they have the swapable battery option. Can't really say they don't have a point. All that said it certainly makes me go towards the Z2 because battery life is top priority for me.
How do the battery results make sense? It shows 69h endurance rating, while the LG G2 shows 62h. However, the G2 has much higher times for browsing and videos, and slightly higher for talk time.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2014First of all, the LG G3 is a good phone. However, a couple of things should be kept in mind:
... moreExactly. No disrespect to it. It's a great device and the display is great.
But it's battery life and performance are a little below the rest thanks to it's display and weak decision in battery.
Plus like you said it's bezel ratio is nice, but not this god sent like fanboys are claiming.
It's a great device, but aside from personal preferences was not enough to kill competition.
But personal preference is all one really needs.

They made the phone larger with 5.5QHD and kept the same large thickness of 8.9mmm....Yet demolished everything by retaining same 3,000MAH battery.
Even G Pro 2 was made to be 8.3mm with 3,200MAH battery.
So there is no excuse. And even making the display dimmer did not cut it.
It should have at the very least been 3,200-3,400MAH battery.
And could have possibly been more and thinner.
For me even 1080p is overkill on a smartphone.
This QHD thing is just a ridiculous waste of resources.
AnonD-205517, 06 Jun 2014If you want high contrast and oversaturated and false and unnatural color display that gives y... moreMeanwhile in reality and contradictory to your false misleading comments.
LCDs have false unreal over saturated colors too. Especially LG G line. Some of the most.
On top of over saturated colors the screen is super reflective, not as bright, has fake blacks, washed out contrast, fake overly high white balance, uneven backlight with bright spots, consumes more power, takes up more space, and so forth.
Not one thing about that says "natural".
And Amoled has Movie Mode with true blacks, great contrast, less saturated colors, true white balance, less reflective, and even lighting throughout the display. Which in turn makes an overall much more natural image.
Plus in the real world away from the hurt internet trolls most people like the saturated colors in Standard mode and LCD cannot reach or match them.
So you might want to check your facts before bias trolling.
