FRICKIN' LASER BEAMS!!! - LG G3 First Impressions

LG is making all sorts of headlines today as the tech giant announced the successor to last year's flagship with the LG G3. The G3 is one to watch this year folks and here's a short list of reasons why.

The G3 features the world's first Quad HD IPS display with a resolution of 2560x1440 packed into a 5.5 inch display. This means that the phone has 538 pixels per inch, making it one of the sharpest displays on the market. LG cut no corners with the internals either. The G3 features Qualcomm's Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of onboard storage with a microSD card slot for microSD cards up to a whopping 128GB of external storage. We're hoping LG's software customization helps with battery life, but it won't need much help with the inclusion of a 3,000 mAh battery in the G3.

On the back, the G3 features a 13MP camera with a new autofocus feature that utilizes lasers to help the device focus on images quicker. You read that correctly, lasers are included in this phone. LG has also enhanced the power button on the back of the device to feel more tactile. The overall footprint of the device is slightly larger than the G2 but LG has managed to make the bezels on the front so small that LG is boasting 76.7% display on the front. That's more than any current device on the market. 

All in all, I think we can expect great things from LG's latest flagship. With it's powerful display, state of the art CPU, plenty of RAM to go around, and new fancy camera focus tricks, we believe the LG G3 will be a great contender in the smartphone market.
