Customer Review

After I was a big fan of the Nexus series of Google for a long time and still am, this is since the Galaxy SII once again a Smartphne with a proprietary UI.

Device / processing

LG uses the G3 back the back keys. This can be achieved well, have a good pressure point and after a short period of getting used to get along well with them. Alternatively you can use "Knock On". Man taps twice on the touch screen and the display goes on or off. This is a super useful feature.
The build quality is very good. Gaps or wobbly knobs does not exist.
Get back of the G3 is made of plastic, but this looks because of a special treatment of very valuable and does not feel cheap at absolutely.
The LG G3 is large, but still good to use. This is around the very narrow margins around the display. So for example it is only minimally larger than the HTC One M8, despite the 0.5 inches larger displays.
The device is also not too difficult.


When the display is one of the first UHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. Whether this is necessary or not is debatable. The difference between a Full HD smartphone is small and only visible in direct comparison. otherwise the display is also very good, a little darker than others.

Optimus UI / Performance

LG has updated the software compared to its predecessor, LG G2 significantly. This does the surface well. Now she is intuitive, tidy, easy to use and I think also beautiful to look at. LG has this strong, "normal" on the stock Android interface, which Google is based used in the Nexus models. Unfortunately, the LG Software, however, is not nearly as efficient as Google itself. Ruckler come straight from the main menu and on the Home screen frequently. Mostly the Launcher on your homescreen seems even crashing and it takes several seconds until it starts again. This is very unfortunate because the processor used is currently one of the fastest available and it therefore probably is due to the Optimus UI of LG. However, as if LG aware of the problem seems. There were already several software updates performed alleviate the problem. Alternatively, one can use a Andreen Launcher as the "Google Now Launcher" or "Nova Launcher", with this the G3 runs much smoother.

It is positive that there is virtually no bloatware, so pre-installed apps that you really do not need. Only McAfee Security and BOX, a cloud service are installed. The latter can even uninstall.


The camera of the LG G3 is one of the fastest Smartphonekammeras I've ever had in your hand. This is especially the innovative laser autofocus. This scans the environment, thus ensuring almost always in-focus photos.
The quality of the photos is also very good. The camera of the G3, making it one of the best smartphone cameras definitely. The difference between a Google Nexus 5 is clearly visible. The camera of Galaxy S2 can not keep up here.

Videos can be made in an extremely high resolution with UHD. The quality here is good the sound quality is also very good.


The the LG G3 battery lasts very long with me. Significantly longer than that of the Nexus 5. However, this is highly dependent on the use. Overall, however, the G3 is expected in terms of battery life under the current Top Smartphones are relatively far above.

In summary, the LG G3 is thus a consistently successful device with weaknesses in the performance. The display is good and the sharpest on the market. Processing super and by the curved shape is the super G3 in hand. The camera features a fast response time and good quality.
