Honestly speaking, the new LG G3 is probably the South Korean firm’s worst kept secret as almost everybody who keeps tabs on the latest tech news already has an idea on what to expect from the flagship device – from its revamped design, to the new to the new LASER Autofocus feature, and even the new software-based functionalities and accessories that will be launched alongside the LG G3.

You have to wonder though if the leaksters are really that good, or these leaks are just part of the scheme to hype up the smartphone in preparation for its grand reveal. Whichever way you put it, the LG G3 is now officially here, and it’s a perfect follow up to the highly-successful LG G2.

There’s currently no word about the LG G3’s local availability, but an LG spokesperson states that it will be available in South Korea starting tomorrow and will be offered in other parts of the globe in the weeks to follow.

    These OEM’s never seem to learn with their horrid Android skins. It doesn’t matter that they adopted a flatter design language, it still doesn’t compare to the Nexus experience.

    Stock Android or Bust!

    • Yousef says:

      Couldn’t agree more! But it’s actually better than Touchwiz right?

    • fo' shiz says:

      Yousef, I guess you could say that. But with that abomination that Samsung calls Touchwiz, that’s like setting the bar pretty fucking low.

    • Heckler says:

      Dude. What you do is you create your own UI and see if it sells sh*t. Talagang tinira pa yung Samsung. haha

      DAMI MONG ALAM. #Hatersgonnahate #potatoesgonnapotate

    • fo' shiz says:

      Heckler, you’re suggesting that I create my own UI? There’s absolutely no need for that. There’s already one that suits my taste perfectly. And that’s Stock Android. Pure, unadulterated and intuitive.

      Have a nice day, good sir.

    • Heckler says:

      I’m having a good day my dude. So you’re suggesting for LG to just don’t reinvent their UI because it doesn’t work for you? I think they are happy with their sales unlike the “stock” android phones which discontinued right?

    • fo' shiz says:

      Yep. I’m totally suggesting that LG or any other OEM to get rid of their completely unnecessary skins but not because they dont work for me. Not only will it make the experience better but it will also ensure more timely updates. Maybe adding features that takes advantage of their hardware here and there just to separate themselves from the rest of the crowd, while not completely desecrating the platform with their awfully designed software.

      I think Samsung had it the hard way when stats revealed that people dont really use their prepackaged apps that are actually just an half-assed effort to replicate Google’s already fantastic services.

      Plus, I dont think sales truly reflect the buying crowd’s opinion on this. Sales are more of a productive of a really aggressive marketing campaign.

    • im currently a samsung s5 user, but before that i used to be an LG optimus G pro user.

      i found out both companies are good,to be honest i prefer LG’s UI over Samsung’s UI, LG is more customized. i love Landscape home screen on LG’s Phone.

      i didn’t buy G2 because of not having removable battery and no memory card slot.i think my 2 months old S5 will be replaced by G3 once it release here!
      samsung is faster in software updating but not all the time not in all regions. sometime there are bug issues that need to be resolved by another update.

      LG is a bit slow in software updating , but more good results ” less bug issue” after update.

      i love both nakadepende nalang sa kung anong Flagship phone ang inilalabas nila.

      i can say this time definitely will purchase G3 kung di ko man ibenta ang S5 ko ,magiging dalwa ang phones ko. s5 from Samsung and G3 from LG.

      Kudos to LG and Samsung!

    Napaka-Elegante ng phone na ito. Another reason why Samsung GS5 is a fail.

    • G3 says:

      ang Plastic napagmumukhang PREMIUM pag LG gumawa !
      pero sa Samsung nagiging mukhang LOW END Phone ang Flagship nila!

      just honest Opinion lang hehehe

      LG G3 is way better looking than S5, Z2, even G2!



      FLAT NA FLAT ANG BACK COVER ( not good in palm hand too)

      G2= UGLY REAR KEYS especially the Power Button

    Uhm is there no hands on video? This article is the same old specs run down we’ve seen numerous times the past few days. I’m still wondering why this Yuga article deserves a click?

    My next phone and my first LG device!

    yung sa gawing kana sa ibabaw, ano yun, antenna? kung antenna nga o anuman yun, para saan yun?

    this is the best smartphone EVER…good job LG…

  10. Benjo says:

    Wow finally, an LG with removable battery. When will HTC and Sony do it on their high end devices? Hehehehhehe 3000mah on 5.5 inch screen might be a little low though since note 2 has 3100mah on its 5.5 inch screen. LG G3 has a more powerful processor, more powerful graphics and more screen resolution display which means it uses more battery? Mmmmm

  11. Andy says:

    The screen, which is a quad-HD panel with 1440×2560 resolution is, as expected, marvellous. The crispness is stunning, and the colour is just right. Not to over-saturated, as can be the base with OLEDs.
