Consumers purchase smartphones based on a number of different factors. Some individuals are looking for a device with a powerful camera to capture high-quality photos. Some purchases are made purely on the aesthetics of the device, while others may look for a smartphone with a crisp, high-resolution display such as Apple's Retina HD screen or Samsung's 4.7-inch Super AMOLED. One thing we're pretty sure consumers aren't looking for with their next smartphone purchase is a powerful handheld device that spontaneously bursts into flames and burns right through the mattress on a bed, which is exactly what happened to this LG G3.
Apple's announcement of the iPhone 6 Plus is not only significant in that it's a great deal larger than any smartphone the company has created before, but it also drafts the Cupertino company into the realm of the "phablet." A term derived from the combination of phone and tablet, these large handsets have taken the smartphone world by storm over the past few years, and while Samsung's Galaxy Note was the originator of this niche market, it now shares this space with several rivaling vendors. Below, you can take a look at how the iPhone 6 Plus stands up - in terms of size and specs, both - against the also-new Galaxy Note 4, Nokia's Lumia 1520 and LG's mammoth G3.
With LG's new flagship phone, the LG G3, being out in the wild, it was only a matter of time before the company did its usual trick of downsizing it for the more budget-oriented markets out there. It's a tried and tested formula for many companies these days, and LG is not shy about following suit.
Korean outfit LG has just taken the wraps off its new flagship G3 smartphone at a launch event in London, and as the build-up correctly touted, this thing is an absolute beast. Below, we've got the specs, pricing, release date and everything else of importance, so if you've been waiting for the low-down on what comes next following last year's acclaimed G2, join us after the fold.
Samsung, Sony and HTC have all laid their cards on the table in the battle of the high-end Android smartphones, but while their respective flagship devices have each been subjected to a fair amount of acclaim, there's still plenty more for us geeks to be looking forward to. In fact, the LG G3 will shortly be unveiled to the world, and although numerous leaked info and snaps of the handset have given us a decent idea of what's in the offing, some rather eye-catching new press renders offer a detailed overview of the forthcoming release.
The elusive LG G3 is set to be showcased very soon, and thanks to a leaked snap of the device - which, in a turn up for the books, is actually of a fairly high resolution - we now have a fair idea of what it will look like. Moreover, following in the footsteps of the flagship releases of both Apple and Samsung, it will also boast a gold color configuration, and below, you can check it out in all its glory.
