Camera and OIS + Laser for ultra fast approach
In the photo section, no surprises regarding what was rumored. The G3 mounted sensor 13MP with an Image Stabilizer OIS + Advanced by improving the good work already done with the G Pro 2. What is new and differs from other models is the sensor Laser Auto Focus next to the lens , which will focus quickly (0’276 seconds!) even in low light.
What makes this laser to measure the distance between what you want to photograph and the camera, in addition to speed when taking pictures, the LG G3 focuses shoots while the shutter by touching the screen.
The front, meanwhile, remains in 2.1MP but not forgotten fashion selfie and includes opening and a special way for them to detect the gesture of the hand to start a countdown from 3 seconds to automatically trigger .
Video recording high quality ensures sound by eliminating background noise with different microphones and built-in speaker is 1W with Boost AMP technology , but unfortunately is in the back and have to see if it is covered to support it.
Something demanded by the public is the possibility of removing the back cover, and the LG G3 is plastic but is finished with brushed metal appearance and can be removed to access the removable 3000mAh battery and microSIM slots and microSD (up to 128GB), which you can expand to 16GB of internal storage.
The battery may seem an appearance on the new G3 is a little short, especially when you consider that the QHD screen should consume a good peak. However, according to LG, they have managed to innovate in it replacing the metal battery cathode graphite, so that autonomy is not affected on a day to day by increasing the power components.
On the software side, how could it be otherwise, runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat , the latest operating system from Google, but not aesthetics stock. Instead, and as is normal, LG has customized its Optimus UI layer, but this time also take the opportunity to present its complete renovation.
Renovated, new Apps interface and functions
You now have a more consistent patterns of current design look with colorfuldrawings, flat style, smooth, simple and minimalist . New versions of system applications such as camera content or players, are also included with most clean and simple look .
Of course, the functions are still present KnockCode, to unlock the terminal with touch screen, KnockOn and other additives such as QSlide to open floating Apps, but there are also new. One is Smart Notice a warning system that learns about you and your habits to show notifications, reminders, etc., as well as the Smart Keyboard keyboard,which has also received tweaks, making it more intelligent, predictive and resizable.
The security is also included in the G3, disposing Mode Content Lock to lock files when the phone is given to friends and remain impenetrable even when you connect your smartphone to your PC. In case of loss or theft, Kill Switch will delete and block all information below.
And now let their physical appearance, something that the LG G3 stands a lot. Already recognized the great work done by LG with its G2 reducing the edges , and now with the G3 have we become to improve that section, making the spectacular display of 5.5 remains embedded in a front in which she is the main protagonist and reaching a size of 146.3 x content 74.6 x 8.9 mm.
Very neat and elegant design
In its design we find no buttons on the sides , which also helps to reduce the bevels and already characterizes LG. Thus, both the power button and the volume controls are on the back, underneath the camera , a place I will stop right index finger when you hold with one hand.
The LG G3 has a metallic finish , very minimalist, free of fingerprints and the back is slightly curved for improved ergonomics. The thickness remains at 8.9mm, exactly the same as the G2, but do not mention having any IP certification for water resistance , spray or dust, something that your competitors do include.
The LG G3 comes in three different colors , all with brushed finish: white, black / dark gray and golden champagne, which is already becoming a classic among brands, although the official images we see at least two (red and blue ) but its availability depends on the market.
With him also get his first official accessories. The first and most widely spoken it is thecase QuickCircle , leaving a circular hole from the front to access various applications and shortcuts as control the music player or incoming calls. It will be available in 5 colors, although there will be more kinds of thin and hard guards from their web .
The wireless charging comes to LG by G3 standard Qi and use it to bring to sale acharger very compact and foldable support that holds the phone vertically. Finally, in collaboration with Harman / Kardon, have developed headphones bluetooth LG Tone Infinim with beeps and integrated controls.
However, LG has a serious candidate to reign in the high range this year and has everything going for it to do: design, components and build quality, but we miss the water resistance that allows the enjoyment of that tremendous screen any condition and carefree.
Price and Availability
Still, there remains a 5.5-inch smartphone, maybe a size too large for some despite the reduction edge users. The LG G3 will be released on May 28 in South Korea and marketed globally with 170 operators. will come to Spain in July with a price
