LG’s G3 is the big shot smartphone on the block and packs high-end specifications much like its competition, but with one big wow factor. The 5.5-inch display found on the G3 has a resolution of 2,560 x 1,440 giving it a screen density of 538 PPI, and trust us, that’s as beautiful as it sounds. Every inch of the display is crisp and almost looks as if all of the imagery was printed on a thin piece of glass.

This may be the device to buy in 2014, but we’ll let you know in our full review. Find out more about its beautiful QHD display, specifications, and everything else the G3 has to offer in our hands-on and first impressions video below.

Inside of the LG G3 you’ll find a quad-core 2.5GHz Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 3,000mAh battery, 32GB of internal storage, and a micro SD card slot that’s expandable up to 128GB. The backside features a 13-megapixel camera with OIS+ (optical image stabilization), Laser Auto Focus and is capable of capturing UHD video. The G3 is thin, light, and comfortable to hold, but the curved faux-metalic rear cover does tend to be a bit slippery though not as much as the HTC One M8.

On the software side of things, this device is running Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box and LG has redesigned its interface skin to be simplistic and flat. We haven’t had a lot of time to explore everything that the G3 has to offer yet, but this device is definitely shaping up to be the flagship smartphone of the year. Stay tuned for more coverage and our full review in the near future.
