LG G3 review

 

A great handset that's only slightly let down by lacklustre design

Great screen ; Good camera in bright light ; Improved interface ; Can now be picked up cheap ; Android 5.0 feels smoother

Lightweight chassis disappoints ; QHD doesn't wow ; Screen isn't particularly bright ; Android 5.0 has slowed app boot-up times ; Not enough of Lollipop's visual sheen in update

A great handset that's more phablet than phone - and it's only slightly let down by lackluster design.

LG G3 S review: Moderate mid-ranger

 

LG has enjoyed plenty of success with its flagship smartphones of late, and the LG G3 S wants to capitalise on this, offering a mini take on flagship design. The LG G3 S offers something of a mixed bag and fails to impress like its flagship bigger...

Compact handset for display size, good camera

Mixed battery performance, interface a little slow in places, poor reception at times

The LG G3 S offers something of a mixed bag and fails to impress like its flagship bigger brother.

LG G3 Stylus review

 

A cheaper, weaker G3 complete with stylus

Affordable price ; Decent camera ; Screen better than expected

Stylus is pointless ; Looks and feels cheap

The G3 Stylus is a middle of the road type of device, hitting all the key points without really standing out.

LG G3 review

 

The LG G3 follows hot on the heels of the acclaimed LG G2, a device that really pulled LG back into focus at the top-end of Android smartphones. The G2 set the bar high, a tough act to follow, especially having been on the market for less than a year...

Display offers lots of potential, design, great camera, power

Battery life isn't great, might simply be too big for some people

LG has thrown everything into the LG G3, looking to maintain the momentum of the earlier G2 and offer something that stands out from the pack. It achieves that with the Quad HD display, being the first of a new breed of super-high resolution smartphones.

LG G3 review

 

The LG G3 matches brains with beauty in a classy, if oversized, phone

Remarkable hi-res display ; Laser-focused camera ; Slick new interface

It's SO big ; Plasticky back cover ; One-button control

LG G3 review: An impressive smartphone with a WQHD display

 

With its huge 2,560x1,440 display, innovative apps, excellent camera and fast performance, the G3 remains an incredible smartphone

However, when it's also got to contend with the new Moto G4 , which now has the same sized screen and is available for just £160 SIM-free, the G3 does start to show its age. While the G3's Snapdragon 801 processor has aged relatively well - it was,...

LG G3

 

There's a hell of a lot to like about the LG G3. For a start it was the winner of the TrustedReviews Best Phone Award 2014. Its combination of clever design, excellent camera and top-notch screen made it a cult favourite that deserves to sell by the...

Pin-sharp QHD screen ; Good camera, particularly in low-light ; Extremely ergonomic for such a large phone ; Costs less than the competition ; Slick and simple UI

Average battery life ; Screen could be brighter ; Poor speaker

LG G3 review | LG G3 specs, benchmarks

 

Why the LG G3 is still a great phone to buy in mid-2015

When the LG G3 came in at under £500 we were impressed. A year on and a phone that packs amazing features including a Quad HD display and a camera with a laser auto focus is one of the bargains of the market. The LG G3 is surprisingly small considering...
