LG is probably getting a little tired of scraping for brand recognition versus big names like Samsung, Apple and yes, even Google. However, the company is also likely taking solace in the fact that their smartphone sales figures are heading for an all-time high in 2014, with an estimated 60 million units projected to be sold this year. Part of that success probably comes from private label sales of devices like the LG-made Google Nexus 5, though the LG G2 certainly sold its fair share as well. So, at the end of the day, LG is sort of the "sleeper" of smartphone makers and as a major OEM display manufacturer, they've got the chops to compete with the best of breed in the race for superphone dominance. LG's third iteration of their popular "G" line of flagship smartphones, simply dubbed the LG G3, is the culmination of all of the innovation the company has developed in previous devices to date, including its signature rear button layout, along with cutting-edge IPS display technology that only a first tier manufacturer can muster. In fact, the G3's 5.5-inch QHD display drives a resolution of 2560X1440 with a pixel density of 538 PPI, one of the highest density smartphone displays to hit the market to date...
LG G3 Review: QHD High Res Android Power
LG is still considered one of the better companies who makes phones that are made structurally better than most. They were just a little late in the smartphone dominance with their G line, since Samsung already had the Galaxy line and Apple's iPhone series well over a year into the smartphone market. They're just playing catch up right now, but I feel that they're heading in the right direction though...

Im kind of dissappointed in the performance of this phone... ive been holding out on getting a new phone because I wanted to see what this one could do. Turns out is equal to or less than the S5 and HTC One in most tests. Looks like it's just a pretty display.
I might just wait for the S5 prime, since I've already waited this long.
Looks like a cool phone. It is about time they started designing their own icons.
acarzt; well they all have the same CPU right now so of course The G3 won't be breaking away from the pack. Snapdragon 801 vs Snapdragon 801 and you are complaining they are too similar? lol you are a funny one. Keep in mind though the 801 SoC was a stop-gap measure and is already being replaced by the 805 in upcoming phones within the next few months including the real S5 Samsung was supposed to debut but they debuted the S4.5 and called it a 5; boy Samsung sure did learn from apple.
My brother's been pumped to get this for months now. I don't know why, as he doesn't have good enough vision to appreciate its main selling point, but whatever floats his boat.
So just how much of an improvement is this over the LG G2? If it's not THAT significant, I probably won't upgrade to this from my G2.
This Phone is made to be simple. I've seen multiple reviews all pointing to it being a simple easy to use phone. Personally I really like that aspect of it. That combined with the fact that it has a 1440p display (better than my 40 inch tv which is 1080p) I'm not surprised that it is so popular with consumers.
PC gaming FTW! Can't wait for The Witcher 3.
