File-It-Under: High-end mobiles By: D.F.Skin lg-g3-main1


I normally wouldn't include a lot smartphones in the "hot hardware" category,that honor is usually goes to high-end desktops or souped up gaming laptops,but we have to include the newly released LG G3. Now normally when I discuss new smartphones on this site,I put it under the "What You Need To Know " topic,but from all the write ups and videos I've viewed with this device I got to say it has some pretty bad ass hardware,in fact some might say this smartphone have pretty much given consumers an overdose of incredible hardware.

With smartphones,its almost always that standout features that grabs the eyes of many of the mobile tech pundits be it its software or its physical design,but in the case of the new LG G3 smartphone,its the showcased impeccable hardware that is the main focus. The internals within will leave you wondering is this a smartphone,or a real hand held PC (you can say that about most smartphones today). Inside there is a Qualcomm Snapgragon 801 processor, with 2GB to 3GB of memory for consumers to fiddle with,choices of 16GB or 32GB of internal storage,plus a microSD slot for added card storage that goes up to 128GB. Included with its connectivity is a LTE/HSPA along with your standard WiFi a/b/g/n/ac, a Bluetooth 4.0 with Smart Ready with aptXsupport,also it has what you see in most if not all Android smartphones is a NFC (near field communication).


The LG G3 has a pretty serious battery that is removable I might add,it has an astounding 3,000 mAH battery which should give you some serious extended battery life,with an included wireless charging back plate which I believe is an industry first.


Probably the biggest most standout feature on the LG G3 is its display and camera,first lets take a closer examination at the display shall we. The LG G3 has a behemoth 5.5-inch display that has a QHD 2560 x 1440 resolution,which equates to a 538ppi pixel density, along with a sRGB support. So in essence,you have a smartphone that has a display with a very bright intense image clarity. About that camera though,yes that camera,what's special about it? Well it pretty much has what you'll see in any high-end smartphone,13-megapixel rear camera which by the way is backed by an OIS technology,2.1 megapixel front facing camera,and it even has image stabilization,but its the technology behind it all that's impressive. Its uses laser auto-focus system which is a industry first.


Here's how it works,the users enters a camera app on the smartphone,the G3 then starts to emit a cone-shaped laser beam from a small hole just to the side of the camera. The smartphone then measures how long it takes for the light to bounce back from the object and gets a reading on how far subject of photo is. The idea behind this whole technology is you'll be able to focus on the correct subject with more speed,with extreme low light conditions.

The LG G3 from a hardware prospective is a pretty beastie smartphone,but is it enough to win over consumers,time will only tell.
