7 Reasons Why LG G3 Is A Killer Smartphone

Move over  Samsung S5  and HTC One M8,  LG G3 is here. And iHaters will consider this. G3 is  the third iteration of the G series. Here are some seven reasons why this LG’s latest flagship is a killer smartphone.

  1. It has  the highest resolution in any smartphone available so far. Expect very clear, sharp and vibrant display with 2560×1440 Quad HD resolution with an eye popping 538 pixels per inch. That’s just pixel overload.
  2. G3 boasts a cutting edge 5.5-inch massive screen. Yeah, you could say it is a phablet. But it still looks great with its sleek design
  3. Watching a video is a delight with its thin bezel at 3.05mm on either side of the screen. Compare that to Samsung S5 with 4.05mm screen
  4. It is the first smartphone to introduce laser Auto Focus which enables capturing a photo in an instant. 13MP rear camera. 2.1 MP front camera perfect for selfie. Plus dual LED flash and optical image stabilization (OIS), which helps it to take better photos in low light and video without too much shakiness
  5. Removable Battery. Wireless charging. Superior battery life with 3,000mAh. So its ok to watch or record a 4k video
  6. Curved back for easy grip. The casing is plastic but looks elegant with its faux-metallic look. Notice the rear button layout? Just nice.
  7. Louder and clearer audio sound with 1W Speaker and boost AMP
