LG G3 hands-on and first impressions
After a flurry of leaks, including one directly from LG Netherlands, there wasn’t much left that we didn’t seem to know about the LG G3. Even so, it’s nice to see that the G3 has finally landed! Even though we knew just about everything that the flagship would bring to the table hardware-wise, there were at least a few welcome surprises. Here’s our first look as we go hands-on with the LG G3!
Keeping up with current trends, the LG G3 packs the best processing package currently available, with its Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, clocked at 2.5 GHz, and backed by the Adreno 330 GPU, and either 2 or 3GB of RAM — depending on whether you’re talking about the 16GB or 32GB model. As with other Snapdragon 801-powered devices like the HTC One M8 and Galaxy S5, everything is fast and smooth, and it handles every task you can throw at it with ease. This is even more the case if you happen to be rocking the 3GB variant. Again, the actual amount of storage and RAM you get depends on what model you pick up. Regardless of whether you have the 16GB or 32GB version, you’ll still have access to a microSD slot, which can expand up the memory by an additional 128GB. The full range of connectivity options are available here as well, including NFC and 4G LTE. The LG G3 packs a large removable 3,000 mAh battery, which is of the same size as the G3’s predecessor.
