lg-g3-vs-lg-g2

lg-g3-vs-lg-g2Last night, LG unveiled its latest flagship device, the LG G3. Launched a year after the LG G2, the new flagship device not only dons a much sleeker look, but also offers a better set of specifications too. Let s have a look at the kind of upgrade the G3 is over the G2. Also Read - LG TV 2021 lineup launched in India: Check details here

The latest flagship device is taller and wider than its predecessor 146.3mm and 74.6mm compared to 138.5mm and 70.9mm. This means the LG G3 is much bigger and people will find it easier to hold last year s flagship device. The company has however managed to stick with the same thickness – 8.9mm.

DISPLAY

While the LG G2 didn t have a bad display by any means, LG has taken things a notch up on its latest flagship device. It flaunts a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, which as the name suggests has a resolution four times that of HD and almost twice as what you get on full HD. This has also allowed LG to pack in a staggering 538 pixels-per-inch, compared to 424ppi in last year s model.

HARDWARE

The LG G2 with a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor offered enough power to run everything smoothly. The LG G3, with a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor follows in a similar tradition. Unlike last year s device though which only had a 2GB RAM inside, the G3 has a 2GB or 3GB RAM depending upon the variant you buy.

This also brings us to the storage. While you still get two variants 16GB and 32GB LG has included a microSD card slot in the latest flagship device. You can use it to expand the memory to up to 128GB.

CAMERAS

On paper, things are identical with both the devices sporting a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera. But on the new device LG has crammed in new features like Optical Image Stabilizer Plus (OIS+), and a Laser Auto Focus, which can shoot within 0.276 seconds or the same time as it takes to blink an eye. The front camera features a larger image sensor and larger aperture, which result in better selfies.

BATTERY

LG has again opted for a feature that you found in last year s flagship device too. The G3 gets a 3,000mAh removable battery along advanced optimization capabilities for greater efficiency.

SOFTWARE

The LG G3 not only runs on the latest version of Android, but also boasts a new UI. This new UI is not only flatter (as is the trend these days), but also introduces an array of new features like Smart Keyboard and Smart Notice among others. The latter is LG s Google Now-like assistant, which monitors your usage and sends recommendation and suggestions.
