Review: LG G3 is ready to compete with the industry's best
July 30, 2014
Discussing which smartphone is best is oftentimes no different than determining which flavor of ice cream is superior. You have a handful of really great options that most people can agree are the top choices, but choosing the absolute best ends up being a matter of personal preference. LG is a smartphone manufacturer that, until last year, wasn't widely considered to be one of the best. What LG has created in the G3 makes it clear that the company is ready to compete with the other big names in the smartphone industry. When last we looked at an LG flagship, it was difficult to really appreciate what was in front of me. The LG G2 came off largely like a Galaxy S4 clone with its unnecessarily glossy exterior and an attempt to match TouchWiz feature for feature in LG's visually outdated flavor of Android. Outside of the decision to place the volume and power buttons on the back of the phone and being the first smartphone to rock Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 processor, there wasn't a whole lot about the G2 that really stood out. LG's latest smartphone might as well be made by a different company altogether, as everything from the premium feel to the beautiful new UI sets the G3 in a class well above anything else LG has made before.
