LG G3 Fully Outed on Dutch LG Site, Everything You Need to Know is Here

lg g3 official-1

The LG G3 isn’t official until tomorrow, but thanks to an official Dutch LG site, we now know almost everything there is to know about the device. I’m talking everything from specs to software features, to the “metallic” design of the body, we have it all. I guess the only thing we need now is a US price and date for retail availability.

So what are we looking at, you ask? 

The specs are now confirmed as a 5.5-inch Quad HD display (2560×1440, 538ppi), “advanced” 13MP camera with OIS+ and laser autofocus, 2.1MP front camera, “lightweight metallic design,” 1 watt speaker with “boost amp,” brand new “easy to understand and attractive” interface, wireless charging, removable 3,000mAh battery, micro SD card slot, and support for the QuickCircle case.

The specifications tab apparently only shows a Snapdragon 801 and 2GB of RAM, whereas we had seen a Snapdragon 805 and 3GB RAM mentioned in previous leaks. The specs page is no longer accessible, so I can’t confirm that myself. Does that mean we really aren’t going to get a Snapdragon 805 and 3GB RAM or are there two variants? That is the question that remains to be answered.

    LG G3 is the father of all phones till now in the market.

    https://plus.google.com/+Techgreet

  • Pablo
  • Shawn John

    Ahhh…The G3 the psuedo Nexus 6.

  • GJV

    I’ll wait for some reviews before I jump on the “only an 801! how dare they!” bandwagon. Looks like another winner to me. Could do without the added resolution however – aside from people who hold magnifying glasses up to their phones, who cares? The G2’s screen is perfection, resolution-wise.

  • Kris

    wow!.. looks beautiful and seems like it’ll be champ.

  • Chippah

    idk, as a current G2 owner this isnt really exciting me as much as i thought.
    They fixed the buttons. but the hardware isn’t a big enough jump and they need
    to work on Durability now as well,

    Snap 801 + all those extra pixels should put performance right on with a current G2.
    Plus the battery is a little smaller.

    We shall see later today what the “real” specs are.

    I Hate Samsung, but they have a big oppurtunity to finally make things right with the Note 4.

  • Michael Shorey

    this phone is really getting my interest peaked.

    • Jim Davis

      *piqued* (I’m so sorry to be that guy.)

      • GJV

        You’re like the @Stealthmountain of DL comments!! LOL

  • Jérôme Besnard

    If it comes in Google Edition (or “Silver line” or whatever Google is working on to make available top dog phones with vanilla Android), it might take my heart over the moto X. Until the moto x2?

  • Eric

    Such a wrong move by LG – screen too large and battery too small.
    I have the LG G2 32GB, which has a 5.2″ screen, and it already feels rather uncomfortable to hold.
    I really feel that LG should have made the G3 a bit smaller (5.1″ or even 5.0″).
    I believe 5.1″ is the largest screen a phone should have.
    I don’t understand why they would still offer a 3Ah battery, they should have somehow offer the G3 with at least a 3.2Ah battery.
    The resolution is already great on the G2. Any higher resolution will only cause the device to run slower.
    The move to 3GB of RAM is a must. With 2GB on my G2, I always see I reach the limit and the system has to decide what stays in RAM and what to remove.
    I wish they have even gone with 4GB, if possible. The more RAM, the better.

    Other manufacturers are going to take advantage of these bad decisions, and they will probably sell better. Sigh…

    • tomgillotti

      Every phone should have at least a 3000mAh battery, but most still don’t for some reason. Yes, they should have gone bigger, but 3000mAh is still respectable and since it is removable (which several other aren’t doing anymore, either), it might find itself some larger replacement options… all in all I Would say that if this phone does have the 805 with 3GB RAM, it’s a super phone. I love the 5.5″ screen as well!

  • Godzilla

    I think I might try LG next year when my upgrade is here. They are impressing me.

  • David Castillo

    Deff getting the One+One this phone basically the same jus a better screen but how good can a screen be at half the price Smh all major companies are still pushing same speced but high price tag jus for the brand smh smh smh smh smh

  • StankyChikin

    God I hate front logos.. Guess I better get used to it if the Nexus line is going away.

  • mcdonsco

    My main concerns are size (please not too big!), price (g2 at $449 when I bought was great!) and that Verizon doesn’t muck up the front with a logo (though, I’ve seen the posts with it…just hoping its wrong).

  • Ricardo Allen

    Any chance there will be a Google Play Edition?

    • Paul Hansen

      GPE would be nice. It’ll likely take a while if it happens

  • Guest

    Lg should just throw in a stylus, that file management looks like it could use one.

  • Epic Tea

    Loving the New UI, Great design changes by Lg software side. Now touchwiz truly is the ugliest skin.

  • Epic Tea

    This looks incrediable, Goodbye Nexus 5, hello G3 🙂

  • Rapist on BAIL

    Proud Moto X user! This G3 phone looks damn good. Would consider a Google edition of this phone. LG skins is just plain ugly.

  • andrewstuart81

    here buy LG on discounted rate from here http://goo.gl/r2pneA

  • Eric Cappa

    The battery on the G2 is 3000mAH. I think I’ll stick to the G2 if the battery is the same AND nothing extraordinarily new.

  • grayson360

    It needs to have the 805 in it. Not for CPU speed but GPU speed. The new Adreno 420 at 2560×1440 achieves the same performance as an Adreno 330 at 1920×1080. In other words, if it doesn’t have an 805, it’ll perform slower than the G2.

  • S9779

    No ir blaster no thanks. One feature I never new I wanted till I got it.

  • Eric R.

    I want the wallpaper!!!

  • Fatty Bunter

    Honestly, the upgrade to 805 is at the bottom of my list. Everything else seems so great I wouldn’t even care

  • LionStone

    When leaks about HTC we had, ”poor HTC can’t do anything right ”… Leaks about G3…”thanks to an official Dutch LG site ”..

    • needa

      weren’t there a couple of reviews on the m8 a couple of weeks before it was announced?

    • jnt

      Just goes to show the bias towards certain OEMs, whether negative or positive.

  • kellyshaun

    Best shown — I managed to get quality existence around the A, nonetheless it seemed to be under no circumstances great. There’s gotta be described as a happy moderate, though — at least for those folks which may have average dimension fingers!

    Good article but One thing author is forgotten to write and that is http://bit.ly/boonznews

  • What’s funny is folks who are freaking out over the the processor, the
    801 is KILLER. All these insecure tech people… lol smh It literally JUST came out. The G3 is going to be a Fantastic device just as the m8, Z2, and GS5 all are as well.

    • Sparking2

      You are correct. People just parrot complaints. They don’t even understand that the 805 doesn’t have an integrated modem like the 800/801. The 805 is not for mobile devices, its for tablets and to showcase the new GPU before 810 hits mobile phones.

      • Dr T

        805 was designed for both smartphones and tablets. Qualcomm specifically created a new packaging technology, Moulded Embedded Package, to allow for a wider memory interface which allowed for a smaller footprint. It is true a discrete modem is needed, but with the size of the G3 this would not be an issue.

        The 805 with the Adreno 420 would have provided for 50% improvement in graphics performance while using 20% less power. Perfect for a QHD screen like the G3.

        If the G3 is launched with a 801 it will be a disaster.

        • talktalk

          Exactly. This is just a slightly polished-looking version of the G2 with worse speaker placement…

  • teebone

    Uh oh fellows, looks like only 2 gig of ram and snapd 801!! Yeah think I’m waiting for the GS5 Prime lol

    • teebone2

      805 doesn’t have an integrated modem. Hope you like carrying 7 batteries around.

      • teebone

        I’m thinking the battery life will be similar to the GS5..I mean my GS4 with kitkat constantly gets over a full day and I use my phone a lot. The kitkat update really helped. I guess we’ll know more by tomorrow. I’m actually thinking the GS5 Prime will be for Korea only, from some recent rumors so we’ll see. Hope the rumors are wrong. But yeah if this LG phone only has 2 gig of ram along with only 16 gig of internal memory, even though you can add more, would be a disappointment.

        • teebone2

          I hope the battery life is similar too. I just meant that if it used an 805, the battery life would be much worse because it does not use an integrated modem like the 800/801 and future 810 will have. A separate module would be required and that puts a serious damper on battery life. But all in all, tomorrow will be an interesting day. LG has a good track record lately and I remain optimistic the same as you.

      • H Larson

        The 805 uses 20% less power than the much slower 801. A discrete modem, especially in a phone the size of the G3 is not an issue.

  • Skwisgaar

    I can not believe they would release this phone with an 801 and 2 gigs of ram. Especially when they KNOW that both Samsung and HTC have “prime” versions of their phone’s in the works that will most assuredly have an 805. It would be a fail right from the start. Especially after their initial strategy with the G2 was to go right for the throats of their competition and release a phone with the most powerful processor out at the time that nobody had released. I can’t believe they wouldn’t follow the same strategy and would actually release something with phone specs that already exist. Really hoping this isn’t the case.

    • Skwisgaar2

      800/801 and later 810 all have integrated modems. 805 does not. its designed for tablets to showcase the new GPU, not for mobile phones. People don’t seem to understand this and everyone keeps complaining…Maybe you want GNex level battery life from your phone?

      • Skwisgaar

        I’m a bit confused, cause on Qualcomm’s spec listing for the 805 it says it features the latest MDM9x35 multimode modem and RF transceiver chip technology, it supports next-gen LTE-Advanced, Carrier Aggregation, etc. Plus there are many reports that the S5 Prime and HTC Prime variants will feature it. So I don’t get where you say it wasn’t designed for mobile phones?

    • crazed_z06

      What? The Note 3 was out when the G2 came out and had a Snapdragon 800, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB onboard standard.

      • skwisgaar

        Actually…upon the G2’s release it was the only phone that had the 800. Note 3 came out a few weeks later. So for that time, LG was first to market and held the crown, even if it wasn’t for a very long time.

  • Al-Burrit0

    I say there will two variants! 16gb, 801, 2gb ram. 32gb, 805, 3gb ram

    • Al-B2

      I’d be happy if they made a 1080p variant personally. However, as for an 805, that does not come with an integrated modem like with the 800/801. It will be terrible for battery life as it’s designed for tablets. The 810 series will bring back the integrated modem. So, you definitely do not want an 805 in it’s current state.

      • Al-Burrit0

        Yeah a 1080p variant i would have no problem with. Why is there so many people complaining about the g3 not coming with the 805?

  • Matt G

    Anyone else notice it also says shipping with 4.2.2?

    • VivianC

      Posted the same thing up above before I saw your post. I’m guessing cloned G2 page being updated. We’ll know for sure tomorrow.

  • Adam Jewl

    LG is one the best manufacturing company and its smartphones are really awesome, but what is up with apple? http://bit.ly/1nMJVYH it has started again against Samsung.

  • flosserelli

    I think the 801 will be adequate but I am not sure the 3000 mAh battery will last all day. And whoever approved the grey top bezel for all G3s should be fired. It reminds me of base model cars with grey plastic bumpers. Not at all fitting for a $600+ phone.

  • magiccoupons

    Looks amazing!
    Showing Samsung how it’s done!

  • 4G3

    “METALLIC DESIGN”?

    Is it
    metallic metal
    or
    metallic plastic?

    😀

    • Maxim∑

      is metal plastic lol… was confirmed in the Korean keynote last week

  • Josh

    I hope its boot loader can be unlocked on ATT. If it can instant buy.

  • g2 owner

    Bigger screen, yet smaller battery than G2… Sup wit DAT!
    Prob. Still buying though.

    • Such

      G2 & G3 both have 3000mAh batteries

  • Jay Ochs

    i’m going to be honest…coming from my G2, this isn’t a big upgrade, especially with the same battery size. i’m not for removable batteries anymore, as they can get a bigger battery inside a phone if it’s non-removable, and unless they’ve pulled some miracle software engineering, pushing more pixels may be an issue with the same size battery.

    that, and i don’t want removable because i’m afraid of the crappy build quality that i’ve been plagued with when i bought samsung phones. the body-twisting issues and the creaking because of the removable battery always annoyed the hell out of me, which is something that made me return my GS5 within 6 hours of buying it. i’m looking for a new phone, but i mean, a bigger G2 with the same battery and a higher def screen? eh.

  • OF

    No 805 lol. What a joke. Kidding! Sorta! May still purchase 🙂

    • OF2

      Again, you keep whining about this. 805 = no integrated modem and designed for tablets. You will experience terrible battery life! Wait for 810 or be happy with 800/801 now that are designed for mobile phones.

  • bydavidrosen

    Was really hoping for my next phone to be waterproof but I don’t know… This thing seems otherwise perfect.

  • Was kind of hoping for a 805 and 3gb ram

  • Xavier_NYC

    People are making such a big deal about the 801. Do I want it to be an 805? Yes but when you have a device like the Oppo find 7 that has the same specs with a QHD screen running buttery smooth with an 801 Soc then the G3 should be fine.. Plus I bet there’s two different versions of the phone.

    • OF

      True. But the 805 is ready for release. Just seems kinda pointless to release the phone with the 801. And before anyone of you comment, the 805 GPU has 405 increased performance over the 801. That’s huge!

      • OF2

        Like many others, people just whine about the 805 without any understanding. It does NOT have an integrated radio like 800/801. It’s designed for tablets to showcase the new GPU before the 810 series is released for mobile phones. Unless you want abysmal battery life…

        • OF

          Oh shut it already. Geez. What will your excuse be when phones start releasing with the 805?!?

          • OF2

            No, you shut it. You are contributing nothing by replying to every article begging LG to include an 805 when it doesn’t exist with an integrated modem yet. At least I provide some information for you to learn but what do you do with it, become hostile in your response. You’re a perpetual troll or believe ignorance is bliss. Either way, not very smart. And to answer your question, if they develop an iteration for mobile phones then you have your answer. As it stands now, it does not exist. Sorry if facts upset you but stop spamming Droid-Life with your waste of space on every single G3 article.

          • OF

            What facts? Show me proof that it doesn’t exist? You can’t. You can only talk out of your ass. I’m glad i’m getting under your skin though. Maybe you should go take a walk.

  • schlanz

    so the vzw version wont have the metallic band on the front at the bottom?

  • skeptic

    not fond of those button layout. regular button placement is fine. not willing to experiment with this design.
    But a great phone nonetheless.

  • Matt G

    The question of the year… Wait for Moto X+1 or get the G3

    • tylerc23

      M8 lol but the G3 seems really nice. If it’s between those 2 then I would go with the G3

  • HarvesterX

    Even with the misleading specs it still bears everything else in benchmark tests from what I’ve seen. I do think though I’ll wait until the 805’s come rolling out though before upgrading as the new Adreno is beast.

    Not like the Adreno in the 801 is any kind of slouch though. It can produce a PS3 level experience. Makes me wonder how close to current gem consoles the 805 will be capable of.

  • frankyblike

    Go LG!!

    Samsung and HTC should take note

  • Danmheadache

    please!!!! 805 3gb!!!
    Though not buying.. Contract!! TT

    • DH2

      805 has no integrated modem. It is designed for tablets, not mobile phones. Using one in it’s current state would destroy battery life. Wait for 810 or appreciate 800/801 now.

      • Danmheadache

        LG will think of someway to make it happen.

  • The Narrator

    I’m not sure why everybody is worried it said 2gb of ram . This is the only time it ever said that which is a mistake. Always has been 3gb.

    • PoisonApple31

      lol just like you have been saying for months SD 805!

      • The Narrator

        I said 801 or 805.

        • Qwerty

          Narrator, are you Bionic in a new disguise?

    • Sorry to burst your bubble, the leaks are what were wrong… it’s going to be the same 2GB RAM as was in the GS5/m8.

    • You want confirmed proof of 2GB RAM?? BOOM! —–> http://www.lg.com/nl/mobiele-telefoons/lg-G3-D855
      Directly from LG and not some unreliable “tech” website.

  • jnt

    So we’re still looking at the massive size I assume… height of the M8 (which is too tall) and slightly wider. If that’s the case, the size alone will be a deal killer for me I’m afraid. I simply can’t go any larger for a phone any more. The M8 is too tall. The S5 is at least thin but a bit too wide – but it’s not slippery like the M8. If this is also metallic and slippery like the M8, and even bigger… bleh… too bad, b/c it’ll be an awesome device overall, and I hope it sells tons for competition sake.

  • Captain Spaulding
    • PoisonApple31

      International variant, not what we’ll see in the US?

      • Captain Spaulding

        hopefully

    • The Narrator

      801 is fine, and 3gb is confirmed.

      • Captain Spaulding

        I’ll consider it confirmed when LG announces it.

        • The Narrator

          They already announced it.

          • No they haven’t.

          • LiterofCola

            You know, you guys keep complaining that Narrator is a troll when guys actually troll just as much as he does. Relax.

          • 0h you mean yourself? yes, I agree.

          • LiterofCola

          • Captain Spaulding

            link?

      • 3GB RAM is certainly NOT confirmed, will you please stop spreading misinformation just because you wish fantasy were real.

      The 805 does not have an integrated radio like the 800/801. It’s designed to showcase the new GPU in tablets before the 810 series hits, which will have an integrated modem. Unless you want bad battery life?

      • Captain Spaulding

        So, the S5 Prime and M8 Prime, which are rumored to have 805 will have worse battery life than their predecessors? That seems unlikely to me.

        • Captain2

          Rumors are rumors. However, if true, then ideally, the chip will not be used in it’s current iteration now and modified to be mobile friendly.

          • Captain Spaulding

            So, who’s to say that couldn’t be done for the G3?

          • Captain2

            Because you can view all information about the current state of the chip or delve into Anandtech’s review if you want to do more than play devil’s advocate. Facts are out there, do some reading and educate yourself, Captain!

      • SeanPlunk

        That’s garbage. The Note 2 had the Exynos 4412 which also didn’t have an integrated radio and got substantially better battery life than most other phones of the era. We’ve already seen S800 phones get great battery life and the S805 is even more efficient per Qualcomm.

  • ki11ak3nn

  • Christopher Moore

    I’m OK with the 801 but I want 3gigs of ram. Having the 805 with 3 gigs would be phone excellent. That would make me upgrade from a Note 3.

            It’s going to be running Jelly Bean (4.2.2)? I think someone cloned the G2 page and made partial updates. Guess we’ll know tomorrow.

          • VivianC

            Sorry if I was unclear. I meant the person who was creating the page started by cloning another page on the site as a starting point. I wasn’t accusing you of faking anything.

          • joe23521

            I’ll believe it has 2GB of ram if you believe it’s running “4.2.2 KitKat”. Fair?

      • No it doesn’t.

    • Ray

      Yeah 2gb of ram is a no go for me

    • I just read and watched a video of on another site it confirmed a 2gb ram with 16gb of storage and a 3gb ram model with 32gb storage with micro sd slot up to 128gb

  • Ben Murphy

    Please have an 805! But definitely not a deal-breaker.

    • The Narrator

      Benchmarks are above other phones even with a QHD screen.

        its pretty much the exact same as the G2 with a new UI. I can flash the G3 ROM and save 250$

    • Ben2

      An 805 would destroy battery life. Unlike 800/801, the 805 does not have an integrated modem. It is only designed to showcase the new GPU for tablets! The 810 series will bring back the integrated modem for mobile phones.

  • chris125

    Eh not that impressive if these pan out.

  • supremekizzle

    I keep seeing conflicting fronts. Some have an all black face and some have the bottom bezel matching the body color. Which is it?

    • chris125

      The black is all black, the others have the two color front

    • Ray

      I think the one with matching front and back is Verizon only

      • supremekizzle

        Crap. No way am I going to Verizon, but I like the all black front.

  • Ana

    Can’t wait for the official release and to see the 805 mysterie unsolved!

  • wollac11

    That’s very nice. Is it actually metal or just metallic looking plastic?

    • The Narrator

      Says metallic, so I’m assuming that. Not plastic.

      • wollac11

        Yes you would think so although the words “metallic design” I feel could be deliberately misleading. Often when it is actually metal they state is it made or aluminium or whatever metal it is cast from but here there is no specific details. I am hoping it is actually metal but I’m still not 100% sure.

        • The Narrator

          Doesn’t matter to me, it looks good either way, and has wireless charging built in.

          • wollac11

            Fair enough. I think it looks good I just worry plastic designed to look like metal would probably feel a bit cheap. Plastic / polycarbonate bodies can feel good when they are matte like the Nexus 5 and 7 but if they are glossy I am not so keen. I like aluminium devices or soft touch plastic and I also quite like the glass on the Nexus 4 but I don’t like glossy plastic.

      • It is Plastic in the same way GS3 was touted as having a “Metallic” finish that turned out to be the Slimy HyperGlaze finish.

        • LiterofCola

          You guys are missing the part where it says it has a “Lightweight Metal Housing.” Sounds like it’s metal.

          • Maxim∑

            it was already confirmed in the Korean keynote to be plastic

          • LiterofCola

            Do you have a source? Just curious, I wasn’t able to find one

    • PoisonApple31

      Metal housing…plastic shell is my guess.

    • Damian

      I’m wondering the same. If there is metal, how much exactly?

    • Ray

      Has to be plastic if it has wireless charging unless they figure out a way around that

      • wollac11

        Yes I had been thinking that but all this hype about its metallic casing in all the leaks and teaser videos had got my hopeful it might actually be metal. I don’t mind plastic devices necessarily but I am not sure I’d want plastic designed to look like brushed metal.

        • John

          Metal texture isn’t that bad if it feels real enough.

          • wollac11

            I’ll reserve full judgement until I’ve held it but I am not convinced. Most metal look-a-like plastic I’ve ever felt has been pretty nasty.

    • calculatorwatch

      Either way, HTC is gonna be pissed.

      • lol Why would htc be mad about some slimy, plastic rip off of fake metal ala’ GS3 HyperGlaze. I know I wouldn’t be.

        • calculatorwatch

          Because LG will be advertising it as a “metallic backside” and most people will be lead to believe it’s the same as HTC’s. Which I’m sure it’s not.

  • dissapointed

    X+1 then

    • John

      I feel like people on Droid Life just love the Moto X, including me.

          I hope Moto only bumps it to 5” screen size

      • Epic Tea

        I can’t past the 720p display I used it for a month after using countless 1080p displays like the htc one m7, gs4, nexus 5 and lg g2 it was alright overall touch less feature was cool though.

  • LG is packing everything into the G3. I like it.

  • The Narrator

    Yep, best phone of 2014 confirmed. Day 1 buy.

    • Clint O

      I agree

    • jnt

      If it was smaller, maybe. It’ll probably still be one of the best, but it’s simply going to be too large. Edit: for me

      • The Narrator

        I got big hands. I’m good.

        • hoosiercub88

          Remember when everyone was praising the big phones, and that’s the direction everyone wanted manufacturers to keep moving towards? Now it’s a backlash on anything bigger than a Moto X.

          • jnt

            I like bigger than the Moto X. But there’s a LOT that falls in between the Moto X and the G3/M8/S5 sizes.

          • hoosiercub88

            Really? Such as? Galaxy S5 is on the small end of things now. I have a feeling the Moto X is going to get larger, probably just ever so slightly though.

          • jnt

            G2, S3, S4, One S, One X, M7, the entire Droid lineup the past 2 years, for starters. What “things” is the S5 on the small end of exactly? I don’t include “phablets” in the “phone” category for size, in case that’s what you’re doing.

          • hoosiercub88

            ‘Phablet’ is dead.

            I mean yeah.. the Nexus S was pretty small too, as was my Droid Incredible, and my Galaxy Nexus…

          • hoosiercub88

            If you haven’t noticed, phone size is plateauing.. they’re getting bigger in some ways but only in fractions of an inch. They’re settling on style/design to get the largest screens in the thinnest frames while still managing to cram hardware and a large battery in the devices. The Narrator nailed the biggest problem with smaller MotoX sized phones.. the batteries are too small.

          • jnt

            Very true – I got decent life on the X, but it was by no means great. There’s gotta be a happy medium, though – at least for those of us that have average size hands!

          • hoosiercub88

            I have quite small hands myself, but I never felt like my Note II was unwieldly. The Moto X feels ‘cramped’ sometimes, and I usually grab my Nexus 7 instead. Battery life went from acceptable when I got it in December, to crap in the past month.

          • jnt

            My hope with the G3 is that it isn’t too thick. I might be ok with the size if it’s thinner. That’s one reason I prefer the S5 over the M8 right now – it’s thinner (and not as tall). The M8 is pretty thick in the middle. That’s just me, though – some people like the “heft”.

          • hoosiercub88

            I held an S5 and an M8 for the first time yesterday.. I don’t like the metal on the M8.. it’s too slick, and my hands are usually pretty dry, which makes it worse.

            The S5.. honestly, feels the same to me, save for the back, as an S4.. cheaper though. I had no idea how bad that plastic chrome around the phone felt. The back feels solid and quality, and it’s the part of the phone getting all the grief.

          • jnt

            Agree completely. I actually like the feel of the back of the S5 a lot. The M8 is definitely too slick – I never trusted where I set it. The S5 I don’t worry about as much. But yeah, that chrome around the S5… it looks like something from an old plastic toy from my childhood.

          • hoosiercub88

            It’s so bad 🙁 I’m complete adverse to buying another Samsung phone again.. even though the Fit watch is kind of nice.. I’d rather have an Xperia Z2 if we do actually get them here in the US and the one that keeps being spotted for Verizon becomes a real thing.

          • JoshGroff

            The look is similar to the soft touch back on the original N7, and definitely better than glossy plastic.

          • Tyler Rynberg

            Oh really? As I post from my 4.7″ screen HD MAXX with 3300 mAh battery….

          • hoosiercub88

            Yes really, the Droid Maxx is a fluke. Show me another phone out there in that size category with a 2800+mAh battery? Can you? *hint: it’s rhetorical*

          • Tyler Rynberg

            The point is that they CAN put larger batteries in “smaller” phones, they have chosen not to. They keep making phone bigger because some of the market wants that, well some of the market wants Moto X sized phones with 3000+ batteries. Someone will eventually deliver this… I hope.

          • hoosiercub88

            And if it ever comes to fruition.. it will be thick.

            The phones aren’t going to get much bigger, like I said.. sizes have plateaued. The footprint differences between a Moto X and the Droid Maxx are quite significant.. the Maxx is much taller, and wider. It is also considerably thinner than the Moto X, but what does that tell you about the possibility of cramming another 1000mAh of battery into that form factor?

          • Maximus

            What? You’re talking about the Maxx HD…but let me take you back to the Droid Razr Maxx OG! That phone was not a brick, sported a 4.3″ screen and still had a 3,000 mAh battery in it. If the software wasn’t total crap, it would probably be one of the best phones ever built!

          • Big EZ

            Your last comment said there’s a lot “between the Moto X and the G3/M8/S5 sizes.”

          • jnt

            Right – and he asked what, and those were some of my answers. Unless I’m missing something in your comment?

          • Big EZ

            Most of the phones you just listed don’t fall between the sizes of the Moto X and S5. Some are way smaller than the X. Some the same size as the X. Others are the size of the S5. Only the S3, S4, and two Droids from the past two years fall between those sizes.

          • jnt

            Actually, the only ones I mentioned smaller than the X are the Droid Mini and Razr M. All others fall precisely between the X and S5/M8. The One S is close to the size of the X, but still slightly bigger. And none of them are as large as the S5 or M8. Edit: I’m talking width and height – thickness varies due to curves, and screen size obviously varies greatly as well.

          • Big EZ

            I think they will keep the 4.7″ X and update it, AND add the rumored 5.2″ version. They already have production down for the 4.7″, that would take minor retooling to update. I think they will take advantage of that while trying to compete with the other manufacturers with the 5-5.2″ standard of today.

          • mmark27

            146.3mm tall, 74.7mm wide, and 8.9mm thick for the G3. the S5 is 73mm by 143mm (roughly). So they’re pretty close to the same size.

          • The Narrator

            I like big phones. More productivity. Main reason I left Apple. Just can’t do a small phone. Plus, small phones have small batteries.

          • hoosiercub88

            I had a Note II, then bought a Moto X, and while the Moto X has been nice, it is too small, and as you said, the battery is inadequate.

          • DainLaguna

            Batteries I’ll give you but even then there is more to battery life than milliamps. I’m pretty sure you don’t need a huge screen to be ‘productive’ either. If that’s your preference, awesome, but that’s all it is…preference.

            Having said that,I’m excited about the g3.

          • Big EZ

            I hope that the 5.2″ Moto X rumors are true. If they keep the 4.7″ X (and update it) and add a 5.2″, then maybe other manufacturers will release multiple sizes of flagship phones. I think a small, medium, and large size phone with all the same specs except for battery and screen size would be a hit.

          • MistaButters

            Sales numbers dont show any “backlash”.

          • LiterofCola

            Moto X was too small

          • Sizematter

            You also have to think thinness is the biggest things now a days. Like said before the bigger the screen bigger the battery but also allows them to keep the device slimmer. Ya you could have moto x size device or smaller with all the internals of the flagships but problem is then the device would start to become fatter. Add a fancy screen and bump it over 5″ and everyones happier with the bigger device versus having bigger hump in the back. Cause that hump can make all the difference in being able to use the device one handed or not.

          • Trac

            Big phone with a crappy chip. 801 is a joke for this device. Pass.

        Don’t like big BEAUTIFUL DISPLAYS – don’t buy smartphones with big beautiful displays.
        People will always LOVE BIGGER, FASTER AND MORE POWERFUL, it’s human nature.

        BTW I can’t believe proper holes/cams/sensors/grills ALIGNMENT is so hard to do:

        SAMSUNG Galaxy S5: AWFUL. just awful!

      What? Best phone of 2014, are you sure about that? With 801, and 2gb Ram, that doesn’t sound like a winner at all. It sounds like another flashship device that is going to released by another company. It’s no different than the M8 and S5. Seriously let’s get this right, once the Note 4 hits now we can talk about best of phone the year. I’m sure that phone will beat this phone with high end specs! Sorry I’m no hater, just saying facts here!

          • Epic Tea

            yeah and in 3 months the 805 will be obsolete. specs don;t matter as much anymore since even mid range devices now have what were considered high end years ago and in a few years what was high end in 2014 will be mid range in 2016 or 17.

            Truth is you will never have the latest and greatest specs for more than 6 months, because there are always new devices coming out.

        • TopXKiller

          On a spec hyped beast, “specs are all that matter” .. this isn’t the Moto X

        • SnailPace

          When your running 2k resolution on same specs as other devices running a 1080 screen…specs do matter. This will end up having to be device you try in hand cause the screen is the biggest concern, with the added pixels battery and performance are big. Of course for me it is a mute point cause I’m still rocking a droid bionic. This will prob be the second device I have bought new so anything is upgrade for me

          • The Narrator

            Explain to me why tablet’s double the screen size run perfectly fine with slower chips then.

          • zepfloyd

            screen size =/= screen resolution. And in general you’re going to have a hard time winning that one, I’ve yet to see Android tablets run as well as Android phones.

          • The Narrator

            Did the Nexus 10 run terribly? Nope.

            The 801 is infinitely better than the processor in that tablet too.

          • zepfloyd

            You’re really going to compare a stock device to skinned one? …and there were a TON of complaints about lag on the 10, ha.
            The 801 *can* handle QHD fine, now. In a year from now when everyone else has moved on to the next generation of chips, how will it compare, that’s the question. Does that make it worth the investment now? (I have no interest in the G3 just because I’m not looking for any phone at this point. so no bias here)

          • Colin Huber

            OK, to be fair, the Nexus 10 slowed down as it got older.

        Yeah a Note 4 that is still a pos lag fest

        • Colin Huber

          Haven’t noticed one lag in the Note 3 since the day it came out. You are angry.

      • LiterofCola

        It’s not going to have only 2 gb of RAM.

    • hebrewHAMMER

      Calm your tits. We are still in *MAY*

      • Al-Burrit0

        confirmed tomorrow though!

      • The Narrator

        It’s almost June

    • GSMArena is not a reliable source, they have posted misinformation many times.

      • The Narrator

        It’s from an Official LG announcement.

        • *cough** You want confirmed proof of 2GB RAM?? BOOM! —–> http://www.lg.com/nl/mobiele-t
          Directly from LG and not some unreliable “tech” website.

          • LiterofCola

            Resorting to spamming now huh?

          • Naw, just responding to every single one of your misinformation, in case some poor fool accidentally believes your lies. 😉

          • The Narrator

            I believe an actual announcement over a typo on a site.

          • LiterofCola

            you’re an idiot -_-

    • stang68

      I think you’re forgetting that LG’s software is horrendous. Phone of the year? That’s really funny. And don’t say you’re going to ROM it. If you need to do anything like that to the phone, then it’s not phone of the year.

        Well I don’t know if you’ve noticed over at xda but most people have stuck to and/or went back to the stock ROM because it was actually pretty good. I just think it’s you that doesn’t like it. I had an S4 and touchwiz was terrible but I actually like the software on my G2.

      Last gen 801 chip + QHD = lag. Eat your own crow. Biggest let down of 2014.

      • The Narrator

        Explain to me why tablet’s double the screen size run perfectly fine with slower chips then

        Oh wait. You can’t.

        • Dave L

          They don’t perform that well on the high res tablets either. But if you are ok with “fine” performance and a last gen adreno 330 chip, go ahead and spend your allowance on this dog. Enjoy, junior!

        • It doesn’t matter the size of the screen, it’s the resolution. And if memory serves, the Nexus 10 had horrible performance.

          • DainLaguna

            The nexus 10 has ultra old hardware by comparison though. And it performed worlds better than the first gen nexus7 or nexus 4.

      • Epic Tea

        I guess the Nexus 7 2103 should be a lag bot then but its not with a ppi of 441 the G3 would have a ppi of 500 something.

    • Colin Huber

      Easy now, let’s wait until the Note 4 comes out.
