Official G3 Thread




Here’s what the G3 has to offer in terms of specs and features:

Size: 146.3 x 74.6 x 8.9mm
Weight: 149g
5.5-inch Quad HD IPS (2560 x 1440, 538ppi)
2.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
2/3GB of RAM (depending on model)
16/32GB memory (depending on model)
microSD support (up to 128GB)
13-megapixel camera with OIS+ and Laser Auto Focus
2.1-megapixel camera front-facing camera
Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
Bluetooth Smart Ready (Apt-X)
NFC
SlimPort
A-GPS/Glonass
USB 2.0
4G LTE
3,000mAh user-removable battery with wireless charging support
Android 4.4.2 KitKat with several custom apps on top

- Smart Keyboard: Adaptive technology learns as you type for faster input with less mistakes. Smart Keyboard reduces input errors by up to 75 percent by tracking and analyzing typing habits and intuitively “knowing” what word the user intended to type. The height of the keyboard can also be adjusted to better fit the user’s hands and position of the thumbs. Individual keys can also be customized with frequently used symbols for even faster input.
- Smart Notice: Like a personal assistant, Smart Notice provides suggestions and recommendations based on user behavior, phone usage patterns and location to offer user information when it’s needed the most. Smart Notice can remind you of a call you declined earlier and ask if you would like to call that person back. If you have a large number of un used files or apps on the G3 taking up valuable space, Smart Notice will ask if you would like to delete or uninstall them. But what sets Smart Notice apart from other personal assistants is its natural language capabilities. For example, instead of just displaying today’s temperature and weather forecast, Smart Notice will make a recommendation such as, “You may want to take an umbrella today since it will rain this evening.”
- Smart Security: Understanding the importance of maintaining and securing confidential data when smartphones are shared, misplaced, lost or stolen, the LG G3 offers a number of enhanced security features such as:

Knock CodeTM enables users to unlock their device with a pattern of taps. Merging security and convenience, users can create a personalized code that can be entered anywhere on the screen. With the G3, users have the option of being able to use KnockON to wake the screen to check the time as well as enter the home screen directly via Knock CodeTM.

Content Lock keeps personal files safe and hidden from view when sharing the G3 with friends. When the G3 is connected to a PC, Content Lock prevents file previews so the data is still safe. The locked files can reside either on the G3’s internal memory or on the microSD card.

Kill Switch gives G3 owners the ability to disable their phones remotely in the event of theft. The Kill Switch also allows content on the G3 to be wiped so personal information won’t be compromised. Kill Switch also includes antivirus scanning and remote wipe and lock, among other essential features.

LG will also be offering a collection of new premium accessories to accompany the LG G3:

- QuickCircleTM Case: Available in five colors, QuickCircleTM Case allows easy access to frequently used functions such as calling, text messaging, music and camera all from the QuickCircle window without opening the cover. In addition to the QuickCircleTM Case, LG will offer a lineup of Slim Guard Cases and premium Slim Hard Cases to protect the G3 in handsome style.
- LG Tone InfinimTM (HBS-900): Developed in collaboration with Harman/Kardon, the Bluetooth stereo headset delivers premium audio quality sound in a stylish design. Built with retractable wire management technology and jog buttons for effortless search, Tone Infinim also features Name AlertTM to verbally notify you who is calling before you answer.
- Wireless Charger: Compact and foldable, LG’s Wireless Charger is optimized for easy portability. Compatible with Qi’s wireless power charging technology, the Wireless Charger from LG makes staying powered up as convenient as possible.

At this point it's still subject to carrier changes. Safe to say though that those are some nice specs.

I for one like the wireless charging, microSD support, knock code, QuickCircle, removable battery and 4K.

Its essentially a more robust competitor to MHL. Where MHL is limited pretty much to HDMI slimport can do HDMI and Displayport.

I'm thinking I might do the same as last year. I got the G2 used it for 4 months I think. Then got a Flex. The Flex 2 is already in the works. So get a G3 then Flex 2. Life as a phone junkie. lol

I really don't like how shiny and bright the bottom bezel of the "black" version looks. One of my favorite things about the Nexus 5 is how the bezel (and whole front face) just disappears when the screen is on.
