In Depth: LG G3 Launched with Super QuadHD Display & 13Mp with Laser Autofocus Technique

The Smartphone War is Getting Hotter day By day even Hotter than the Summer Heat. We posted Previously about the availability of HTC Desire816 and now the Latest add is LG G3 which is yet to available but with its Launch the LG made the war more Hotter. LG said "We love Steve Jobs, but he was wrong." Find out why did LG says this….
LG's head of smartphone planning, Dr Ramchan Woo said that, when talking about the screen on the new LG G3, a step upwards in terms of screen resolution.  He said that Apple had got it wrong; that the average user needs 500+PPI to appreciate the sharpness of a good phone screen, in the same way that art books offer a crispness to fully feel the pictures.

Design & Display

The G3's most distinguishing feature is its screen about 5.5inch: It has a mind-blowing 2,560 x 1,440 resolution, which means its pixel density is a truly eye-popping 538 pixels per inch. To put that in perspective, that's the same resolution as a 27-inch iMac. The LG G3 isn't the first phone with this high of a resolution, but it's the first mainstream smartphone. LG calls it "quad-HD," but that's a bit of a misnomer — this isn't a 4K display in a smartphone, but it's the highest resolution I've seen to date. The battery consumption of the display has also been minimised according to LG, with other power drain controls including adaptive optimisation for frame rate, CPU clocking, and timing control.

The design is updated in a big way – the back is now a fusion between metal and plastic. LG is calling this a 'metallic skin' – a film within the polycarbonate shell that allows it to have a premium feel with the connectivity power of a plastic casing. The G3 will be available in Metallic Black, Silk White, Shine Gold, Moon Violet and Burgundy Red. The G3 has dimensions of 146.3x74.6x8.9mm, and a weight of 149 grams.

The LG G3 has the standard specs of most other flagship Android phones: a quad-core Snapdragon processor (this one is an 801 with an Adreno 330 GPU) and 2GB of RAM. This is the standard configuration for basically every high-end Android phone these days — that's why the screen is such an important differentiator. LG G3 featuring 2GB of RAM for its 16GB built-in storage variant, and 3GB of RAM for its 32GB variant. The LG G3 features storage expansion via microSD card (up to 128GB).

User Interference (UI)

The LG G3, running on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The South Korean giant is also boasting of a new custom UI developed for the LG G3, calling it a 'simple flat GUI', using minimalistic designs, with light typesetting and circular motifs that pervade the whole UI from the icons to the QuickCircle notification area. The multitasking UI has also been given a tweak, with app grouping and symbols to help differentiate when switching.

The company is also touting three 'smart' features on the LG G3's UI, namely Smart Keyboard, Smart Notice, and Smart Security. The Smart Keyboard tries to minimise hand (thumb) and eye movement, with the keyboard able to slide up and down when required, and more. It also features adaptive touch and predictive typing. Smart Notice is the company's virtual assistant, that provides the 'right notifications at the right time', based on the phone's usage and status. Smart Security comprises Content Lock, Knock Code, and Kill Switch remote features.


LG is making a big deal about the 13-megapixel camera in the G3, not so much for the sensor, but for the added features. The camera has something called "Laser" autofocus, which is supposed to focus faster than ever. The sensor on the front-facing 2.1-megapixel camera is larger, too.  The system uses a laser detection system, The  team had developed a laser which could see how far objects were ahead, thus stopping a mobile vacuum cleaner from lobbing itself down the stairs.

When it comes to interfacing with the camera, LG has two options: The first is to tap on focal points, and watch the camera take the shot automatically; the second is to tap to focus, and then hit the shutter button. LG has also put more microphones on the G3, which is supposed to improve video and audio quality.

Other Feature

Connectivity options include Micro-USB 2.0; Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac; Bluetooth 4.0 LE (Smart Ready Apt-X); NFC; SlimPort; GPS/ A-GPS; Glonass; GPRS/ EDGE; HSPA+ (3G), and LTE (4G) with MiMO support. The LG G3 is powered by a 3000mAh removable battery, and features wireless charging support enabled via its optional wireless charger. Other features of the LG G3 include a 1 watt speaker with Boost Amp; KnockON and Knoc Code; new smart notifications.

One of the exclusive LG G3 features of the Tone Infinim (HSB-900) headset is 'Name Alert', which lets a user know who is calling by announcing the caller's name. Answer Me+ is another LG G3-exclusive feature that automatically disconnects the Tone Infinim when the smartphone is raised near the ear of the user for direct use.


LG revealed pricing details for Australia, Korea, Singapore, and Finland. The smartphone has also been listed by retailers in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, and Romania.
