StraightEdgeNexus, 06 Jun 2014109 black level!! Are you trolling me, 780 contrast, EPIC FAIL!!! The most disappointing thing... morepeople leave the display, in real life and use you will not notice, unless you have super vision as a telescope

109 black level!! Are you trolling me, 780 contrast, EPIC FAIL!!! The most disappointing thing is 6hr web browsing...
I only thing that they could have invested in a 805 chipset and a more capable battery.
StraightEdgeNexus, 06 Jun 2014Meh, overrated useless QHD mediocre display. Disappointed by you LG after the awesome G2, no 805...805 is not going to solve the battery issues if that's what you are thinking. 805 and 801 both consume in mWs when doing stuff like IM/Browsing for example. The extra pixels in QHD is the real killer. There is no way around that unless some big break through happens on QHD front to reduce over all power consumption without reducing brightness, contrast and other abilities that make for a good display. LG tried their best so A+ for effort but it still wont win people over who are now used to LG G2's level of battery goodness even with replaceable battery.
hope they will release LG G2.5 soon.. I dont need QHD it will kill half of its battery juice,,just replace by 1080 screen and retain everything on G3..
StraightEdgeNexus, 06 Jun 2014Meh, overrated useless QHD mediocre display. Disappointed by you LG after the awesome G2, no 805...100 sites, 100 of various ratings and reviews, tests. although the GSM arena pushing AMOLED displays. i always prefer AMOLED display
amazing battery and performance compared to others even with QHD screen (its a killer of those two), unmatched focus and camera performance but LG u stuck at G2 module again? 13mp again? but still good, but i wish this phone had a FHD screen -_-
First of all, the LG G3 is a good phone. However, a couple of things should be kept in mind:
- The bezel-to-screen ratio is not THAT good compared to deviced with physical buttons. The usable screen area is similar to e.g. Galaxy S5. It just sounds good on paper.
- The 1440p screen isn't really that useful. Of course more pixels is better but performance will suffer on current chipsets. Just like a 4K laptop for now will not be able to run games at 4K resolution because current graphics processors just aren't good enough.
Considering the above two points, the LG G3's two main selling points against the competition (S5, One M8, Z2) are not that amazing. Thus, the competition between the four devices is very level.

I might of missed this but any mention of MHL 3.0 or Slimport 4k for 4k video out?
no mention of FM radio? so does it means the phone has no FM radio?
Hardly a surprise considering it's not even on sale yet. Anyway, good job, LG, this is almost certainly going to be my next phone.
This display is a drawback for me. Kills the battery life and contrast ratio is bad. I wanted this phone but now I'll go for Z2 probably...
I told everyone this would happen eventually. However, I am disappointed that GSMArena doesn't present lumia 930 as an alternative....
Very disappointed with the battery life after his bros G2, still with Lumia 1520.
Endurance maybe good but this is not for the roadwarrior like me. IM/browsing had to be close to 11hrs in the very least.
I knew it would be a tall order for LG to match LG G2 levels but didn't turn out as bad as I was expecting. Still not enough for me to consider this phone. Z2 it is then. Not a bad phone for those who like to play lot of videos and take good pictures but I cant recommend this phone to anyone who do a lot of IM/Browsing activity all day frequently when out in the field.
The saving grace maybe that you can swap the battery out for a spare one. But I don't like that sort of stuff as it calls for me to be mindful of charging the extra battery for standby. Might as well carry a beefy power bank and charge it on the go.
I soo wanted the 5.5" scree size as it was perfect. Oh well Z2 here I come.
