Now with the G3 hitting US carriers, LG looks to be ready to flex those new-found muscles on Twitter, proving that they too are capable of providing a good laugh at Samsung’s expense. (more…)
Our LG G3 review is on the way, don’t worry, but as we put our final touches on it, we wanted to continue showing you all there is to see about this incredible phone. We gave you our 25+ tips and tricks for the LG G3 yesterday, ran through a series of features on Monday, and now have a better comparison of the device to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) to show off.
