When designing the new flagship, the company was guided by the principle of “Perfection in Simple Solutions”, which is the basis for all new LG products. The body of the LG G3 is made with an arched design – smoothly thinning edges allow it to be as comfortable as possible in the hand. Therefore, although the smartphone is equipped with a by no means small 5.5-inch display, it is a pleasure to work with it with one hand.
. This allows it to borrow the best features of two traditional components. On the one hand, thanks to the metal texture, even after prolonged use, the smartphone will look as if it had just been removed from the window. In addition, the presence of metal in the case immediately gives out the high status of the LG G3. On the other hand, plastic provides lighter weight and better mobile network performance – all metal cases, as we know, noticeably impair signal reception.
The side edges maintain a sleek, stylish look thanks to the transfer of the mechanical buttons to the rear panel. Their thoughtful arrangement, large size and convenient texturing make it easy to navigate blindly. Plus, the buttons don’t stick out of the case, so they don’t wear off and complement the carefully calculated contours of the LG G3.
LG is the world’s leading display manufacturer and has achieved record-breaking performance in its flagship smartphone. With a 5.5-inch display, its resolution is 2560 × 1440 pixels! This delivers an astonishing 538dpi density. The size of each pixel has been reduced by one and a half times compared to similar Fulda smartphones!
What is the use of these numbers in practice? Imagine that you turn on the LG G3 camera, and the first thought that comes to mind is “am I looking through my smartphone ?!”. The density, close to 538 ppi, is used only in the highest quality printing, when creating expensive art albums. It turns out that with a few clicks, your smartphone is able to preserve the masterpieces of world art in their original form! And besides the display, the credit goes to the LG G3’s camera too.
The larger sensor (F 2.0) features OIS +, which provides 20% better photo processing than its predecessor, the LG G2. This is made possible by the excellent balance of hardware and software stabilization achieved in the new smartphone.
A key innovation in the LG G3 is laser autofocus. Technologically, it is close to the police radars used to determine the speed of vehicles. Autofocus photography takes only 276ms. You won’t have time to blink an eye in the literal sense of the word – this operation takes the human body 300 Ms. This way you can shoot super high-quality burst shooting and get great shots, for example, in sports.
And, of course, don’t forget about the powerful dual flash, which provides excellent illumination in dark conditions, providing the right color temperature for a natural image.
Для того, чтобы обеспечить громкое и качественное аудио, инженеры LG встроили в смартфон не только динамик высокой мощностью 1 Вт, но и усилитель мощностью 1,5 Вт, что для смартфонов и вовсе находится за пределами мечтаний. Диктофон LG G3 оснащен системой интеллектуального шумоподавления. Для того, чтобы отсеять ненужный звуковой фон, флагманскому смартфону достаточно лишь его трехсекундного образца.
In order to provide loud and high-quality audio, LG engineers built into the smartphone not only a high power 1 W speaker, but also a 1.5 W amplifier, which for smartphones is completely beyond dreams. Voice recorder LG G3 is equipped with intelligent noise canceling system. In order to weed out unnecessary background sound, the flagship smartphone needs only a three-second sample.
The latest version of Google Android, 4.4 KitKat, has an attractive, user-friendly interface with many enhancements from LG. In previous LG products, users have praised the convenience of two-tap unlocking on the display. The new flagship takes this interaction to the next level. In the smartphone settings, you can set a sequence of touches in different areas of the screen and use it to unlock.
In addition, to keep user data safe, the LG G3 is capable of encrypting it using 128-bit encryption. And if you pre-register your smartphone on the site, then in an emergency it will be possible to remotely format and block it.
In LG G3, you can change its size by simply dragging the top border. In addition, the keyboard is trainable. It remembers the areas that you press while typing, and with this in mind, it slightly expands the active zones of the virtual buttons to reduce useless interactions with the display to zero.
LG Smart Reminder, an advanced analogue of Google Now, will be an excellent assistant in your work. It will remind you if you were about to call someone back and ignored the reminder. He will offer to add a number that often appears in the call log to the list of contacts. Clean up the system from unnecessary files using the proprietary LG Smart Cleaning. And even advise you to take an umbrella with you if, according to the forecast, rain is expected during the day.
If 32 GB of internal phone storage and 128 GB, which can be expanded using a microSD card, are not enough for you, then you can easily remove most of the pre-installed applications.
