The LG G3 will be LG’s first smartphone to sell over 10 million handsets

LG G3 will be LG's first smartphone to sell over 10 million handsetsIf you were ever wondering exactly how well the LG G3 has been doing for its manufacturer, LG, you need not look past this news courtesy of The Korea Times. According to the Times, the LG G3 is on track to sell 10 million handsets, the first of LG’s smartphones to achieve the feat. This comes on the back of LG shipping 14.5 million handsets in one quarter earlier this year, resulting in a 16% profit increase and snapping a streak of quarterly losses.

It wasn’t specified exactly when the milestone will be reached, but given the sales pace that it showed in Korea, it’s clear that the device is by far LG’s most popular and should cross the threshold sooner rather than later. Thanks to selling points like being the first smartphone to launch with a Quad HD display and featuring a OIS+ enhanced 13MP camera with lots of gadgets, the LG G3 was supremely equipped to take the smartphone world by storm pre-IFA – we’ll see if anyone has an answer to LG’s best in a few weeks in Berlin.

LG G3 Stylus is official! Don’t get too excited Though

Looks like LG decided it was time to take the wraps off the LG G3 Stylus, and I don’t mean just a stylus for your current G3. No, I mean a totally new device. As the name would suggest, it does offer the wondrous stylus pen and carry the G3 flagship name scheme. Much like the LG G3 Beat though, this is just a spin-off device that packs a fairly excitable line of specs. It does look pretty though, minus those hideous on-screen nav keys. What’s up with the white LG? Clear I can do, even a solid black, but that solid white in the images is just atrocious.

LG G3 Stylus

As for specs:

  • 1.3GHz quad-core processor ( no mention on which one in the press release.)
  • 1GB RAM
  • 8GB internal storage
  • Micro SD slot
  • 5.5-inch qHD display at 960 x 540
  • 13MP rear camera
  • 1.3MP front shooter
  • 3,000 mAh battery (removable)
  • Android 4.4.2
  • Will be in Black, White and Gold

Another interesting bit of information from the press release also tosses out the network type as 3G. Seems like, at least right now, that this won’t really be looking like a device that will be headed stateside. It is possible that a 4G LTE variant could become a thing at a later date though. LG doesn’t offer much in the way of a price tag either, simply stating a “fairly-priced package.” The LG G3 Stylus will pack in a number of the same software features as its higher-end cousin tough. Features like Knock Code and dual-window along with Gesture Shot and QuickMemo+.

LG will have the device on hand at IFA next week and we are sure to see more of the device pop up online then.

I can understand the need to cover the various price points with a flagship branded device, but I still find it rather annoying. Especially with something like this. I was fully expecting a G3 with a pen stylus and few new apps designed for it with maybe a few tweaks to the hardware. It will do well for those that can’t spring for something a bit more pricey, like the upcoming Note 4, and should fare well for LG.

LG G3 vs. HTC One M8 vs. Samsung Galaxy S5

LG-G3-vs-One-M8-vs-Galaxy-S5Today, LG debuted it’s newest newest global flagship phone, the G3. The Android smartphone is a followup to the LG G2 from 2013, which had an unique design which moved the power/lock button and volume controls from the sides of the phone to the back of the device, below the camera lens. The G3 sports that same design, but with a more polished look, complete with a brushed metallic body (available in five colors) and a more mature-looking Android operating system.

The G3 packs the high-end specs we’ve come to expect in premium phones, and it’s perfectly poised to go up against it’s top Android competitors, the HTC One M8 and the Samsung Galaxy S5.

With similar eye-popping screens, powerful processors, and capable camera lenses available on all three devices, deciding on which one is best for you really comes down to the extra features, design, and personal brand preference. The LG G3 is no slouch when it comes to extras, with the Knock Code security feature, a front-facing camera designed specifically for selfies, and a high-capacity battery.

Check out the chart below to see how the phone’s specs stacks up against its competition, and let us know in the comments below which phone comes out on top for you.

You can now watch YouTube videos in 1440p on the LG G3

LG’s new flagship phone, the G3, stands out for its Quad HD (2,560 x 1,440) display, and the handset is taking advantage of all those pixels to offer a high-res YouTube experience. As was first reported by TalkAndroid, G3 owners can now watch YouTube videos in 1440p, a welcome bump up from the usual max resolution of 1080p. This feature reportedly comes via a recent update, and it’s still in the process of rolling out to all G3 handsets. If you’re currently using LG’s latest flagship, let us know if you’re seeing the 1440p options by commenting below. If you don’t have a G3, don’t despair; we’re bound to see a slew of new phones sporting Quad HD screens in the months to come.

1440p Option Showing Up for LG G3 Users


Good news for those of you who decided to pick up the LG G3 and all of its quad HD screen glory. Users are reporting that the YouTube app is now giving them the option of selecting 1440p as a quality option. I was able to verify this on my own LG G3 today also. No word… Read more »

LG’s G3 A is a stripped-down model of its flagship smartphone

LG has to be pleased by the overall reception to the G3, from press and consumers alike. That said, perhaps in an effort to keep the momentum going, the electronics company just launched the G3 A, a smaller and slightly lower-specced version of its popular flagship handset, the G3. This isn’t to say LG’s new, 5.2-inch G3 A, which will be available in South Korea through SK telecom, is by any means a dud, as it does sport some pretty good features of its own. The smartphone comes with a 1080p screen, a Snapdragon 800 processor (2.6GHz) alongside 2GB RAM, 32GB of built-in storage, Android KitKat and, best of all, the same 13-megapixel camera found on the G3. Of course, introducing a different model to the G3 family is nothing novel to LG — the company announced the G3 Beat recently and, apparently, there’s also a G3 Stylus on the way.

AT&amp;T will sell the G Pad 7.0 for 99 cents — if you buy an LG phone to go with it

AT&T will sell the G Pad 7.0 for 99 cents -- if you buy an LG phone to go with it

We can’t say for sure how great a tablet the new LG G Pad 7.0 is — we haven’t had the chance to try it out yet. But if you were already planning on buying the G3 smartphone on AT&T, you may as well pick up the G Pad too: Starting on Friday, Ma Bell will throw in the tablet for just 99 cents extra. Now, before you get too excited, there is of course a catch. To qualify for that insane 99-cent price, you’ll have to purchase either the G3, G Flex or last-generation G2, and you’ll need to either sign a new two-year service agreement or renew your contract through AT&T’s “Next” early upgrade plan. Again, you’d have to really want one of these phones — and you’d also have to really like AT&T.

If perchance you don’t want one of those handsets, you can also get the tablet for $150 with a two-year contract, or for $12.50 a month for 20 months, with no money down up front. You could even buy it contract-free for $250, but at that point, we’d encourage you to take a closer look at the specs. For $250, you get an Android KitKat tablet with a 1,280 x 800 screen, 5-megapixel camera and quad-core processor. That’s not bad, per se, but for the same price or less you can find similar alternatives, like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 7.0; that’s going for $170 (down from $200), with mostly the same specs, save for a lower-res camera. That’s not to say you shouldn’t buy the G Pad — just that you should do your homework first.
