Shortly after Verizon’s variant of the LG G3 went up for pre-order last Thursday, just as we said it would, potential owners of the device grew concerned over the idea that it may not feature a removable battery. I’m not actually sure where this got started, but I can confirm for you today that the device does indeed have a removable battery. When asked by us, Verizon’s media contact for devices, Albert Aydin, sent over the picture below along with a note mentioning that it is “100%, definitely removable.”
He also Tweeted it, in case you don’t believe us.

The LG G3 might seem like old news, but for American buyers, it is anything but old. The device is finally available through AT&T and Sprint, with in-store availability on T-Mobile and Verizon beginning next week. We decided to pop over to an AT&T retail store to pick one up, considering that the G3 model we previously had was a Korean unit.
The specifications are the exact same as the Korean model, with the device featuring a glorious 5.5″ QHD display (2560 x 1440), Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, a massive 13MP rear-facing camera with laser auto-focus, Bluetooth 4.0, 3,000mAh battery, and runs Android 4.4.2 out of the box. To sum up the G3 in one word – beast. (more…)
According to a recent image being distributed by LG to Korean customers, a new version of the G3 is already available. This time, instead of jacking up display resolution or beefing up the RAM, the “Cat 6″ G3 features a Snapdragon 805 processor, allowing it to connect to super high-speed data networks, capable of 300Mbps download speeds.

While pre-orders have been up through Verizon for the LG G3 since yesterday, and the device is now officially available at AT&T, Sprint’s own G3 is now up for pre-order. Priced at the same point as the AT&T model, customers can opt for either a $199, two-year agreement or the carriers’ Easy Pay plan of $0 down and 24 months of $25 equal payments. (more…)
The keyboard that you use with a device may not get a lot of attention, but is still a very important part of your overall user experience. LG is looking to greatly improve experiences of using the keyboard on their already well-designed G3, with a new update that is set to roll out later this month.
This update features a long list of upgrades and enhancements, some of which we have seen on other keyboards, but a few that LG will be proud to offer on their devices. (more…)
Finally, after what feels like forever, Verizon announced pricing and availability for the LG G3 late last night. A pre-order for the device is up on Big Red’s site, with the G3 being priced quite affordably, just as we expected yesterday.
Customers can pick up the G3 for just $99 on a new two-year agreement, or can opt for Verizon’s EDGE promo, which has you paying 20 equal monthly payments of $29.99. Off contract price is listed at $599.99. (more…)
More information is popping up for the rumored mini version of the LG G3. According to the latest leak from @evleaks, the mini variant of LG’s latest flagship will be named the LG G3S. Previously under the working name of G3 Mini, since that made a bit more sense, it’s reported that there could be multiple variants of the device, one of which will feature a dual-SIM setup. (more…)
The practicality of wearables is still being debated, but you have to hand it to LG for coming up with a pretty good use case. The Kizon, announced yesterday, is a smartwatch for kids that allows parents to track their location and communicate with them.
Parents can use the built-in GPS to locate a child, or talk to them through the device’s microphone. Kids can call easily by pressing the “One Step Direct Call” button on the Kizon. (more…)
