Although I have had a smartphone for a few years, I have never tried an Android phone before. A few of my friends swear by it, saying they are much better than iOS, but I suppose there is nothing better than trying for yourself.
When I started using the beautifully made LG G3, I must confess that I was a bit lost and didn’t know which buttons to press. It was very enjoyable discovering how to set it up and what the phone could offer.
They say never to judge a book by its cover, but I couldn’t help but notice that the lightweight phone has a stylish polished metallic skin on the rear cover, with an ergonomic Floating Arc design and convenient power key and volume buttons at the rear. It is available in metallic black, silk white and shine gold.
The first thing I noticed was the size of the screen, the 5.5 inch Quad HD display is much bigger than my previous phone, but the resolution is impressive – the high resolution display is four times the resolution of HD and almost two times higher than a full HD display.
I was very impressed with the quality of the camera, and pleased with the photos and videos. The 13MP OIS+ camera, Optical Image Stabiliser Plus. The timed selfie mode controlled by hand gestures is a great addition, and much easier than trying to find the right button when taking a selfie.
The camera features a revolutionary Laser Auto Focus, which measures the distance between the subject and the camera using a laser beam. This technology allows you to shoot sharp and clear images much quicker than using other phone cameras, even in low light. All the photos taken in the LG Fridge Freezer blog post were taken with LG G3.
I made a video of little man saying all the flags of the world, and the camera quickly changed the focus from little man’s face to the cards of the game. The video features superior sound quality with instinctive microphones.
Since I started using smartphones, I have always complained about the battery life. We do so much more with our phones these days, than just calling and texting, it seems that batteries never last long enough.
Luckily the LG G3 has a 3,000mAh removable battery and advanced optimisation technology to further maximise battery efficiency. You can adjust when you would like the battery saver mode to be activated, and selected which features should be turned off when battery is low.
Not only LG G3 offers great photos and videos, it also features enhanced security features, including Knock Code, a personalised pattern of taps to unlock the device, Content Lock to keep personal files safe and hidden, and Kill Switch to disable phones remotely.
Smart Keyboard helps to type messages and reply to emails quicker, while Smart Notice provides handy recommendations and suggestions based on user behavious. I really liked Smart cleaning, which informs you which apps haven’t been used for a while, and which temporary files can be cleaned to free up space. Another convenient feature is dual window, I found it particularly useful to check emails while using Google maps.
Overall, I really like LG G3, it is smart and simple, perfect for photos, videos, replying to emails and social media networks. It can be personalised with apps and widgets to make your life easier.
