When LG launched their new flagship LG G3 they continuously made it a point that simple is the new smart. So how much did they come by their honest commitment? Or did they just in the haste of creating the new smart missed what mass expects in the competition of not only iPhone6 but Samsung S5 Mini, HTC Desire 816 and even Indian manufacturing companies like Micromax, Lava and Karbonn? LG no doubt is a class apart when it comes to consumer electronics, just ranges a mixed bag of moderate features and specification when compared in phones. While a few years back, LG, the virtually unheard of, in the portable device market gifted the mass with its range of G2 and G3 the android market literally embraced them with high sells making them some of most popular android smartphones in the recent years. Now they had launched the G3 mini, LG G3 Beat, in the month of June, 2014.
When they launched the phone they promptly marketed it as “Woman’s Smartphone”. When the misogynist you may be hovering over the promises that LG G3 Beat will be able to fulfill let us tell you, it can be used by anybody on the planet. Just thin, sleek and attractive design doesn’t bodies the portable mini yet 5 inch screened device. But of the fact you should only expect off the capabilities one provide. Don’t wanna be a burden giver to your phone? Satisfied with little or moderate hankie-pankie with “HER” (Its quite a story, why on earth LG marketed it as Woman’s phone)? Then your relationship with LG G3 Beam may be quite sizzling with little ups and downs all the way! So let’s see how much specification promises are fulfilled by LG and whether at all LG G3 Beam will be the Phone, So Perfectly Right for you.
LG G3 Beam is a Touchscreen smartphone with a dimension of 137.70 x 69.60 x 10.30 weighing only 134 gms provided by no less than 2540 mAh battery which is inbuilt that is non-removable. The mini “new smart she” comes in no less than three attractive colours, Metallic Black, Silk White and Shine Gold.
So as we show you, LG G3 Beat is just perfectly curved and brushed at the back to hold on with one hand or slid over your jeans pocket once you are done checking the notifications. Now “she” comes with a a screen resolution of 720 x 1290 pixels (~294 ppi pixel density) which is for sure to provide some good picture reproduction on the screen. LG G3 Beam has a fetching interference. It runs on latest version of android that is Android’s Kit Kat while Google does its job pretty well giving all the apps you use or will be using on the go and no other than the Google Play does its work of searching apps easily.
LG G3Beam comes with 1.2GHz quad-core Processor of Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 with 1GB RAM. But due to its 1.2 GHz quad processor you can clearly at times get stucked between while swiping through your favorite apps. And what else! Due to overload it can at times get hanged for some minute before it takes up the desired action. LG G3 Beat provides a 16 GB internal memory which maximum will be used by the operating system itself. But not to worry! Coz’ its expandable too though, externally.
She comes with a 8 megapixel primary camera, with flash and a cool selfie idea to capture pictures with- open your hand- make a fist- and countdown starts. The secondary 1.3 megapixel camera aint that bad a shot to be given.
Connectivity and Sensor Specifications
It supports standard 802.11 b/ g/ n WiFi wit Bluetooth and GPS connectivity. FM and USB will help you have some music on the go while the phone is supported by 3.5 mm headphone. Also micro-USB charging is possible with her. It supports regular Sim with 3g connectivity. After all communication or mere calling to other people is a phone’s survival strive!! So when it comes to sensors LG G3 Beat have Proximity sensor with Accelerometer and Ambient light sensor.
Features and Full Specifications of LG G3 Beat
So all these features is provided by other smartphones too what’s new to the dish is the
- Knock code, which unlocks the phone with series of taps on the screen: be your phone is turned on or off. Not only this, the phone avoids the change of other people getting to know your “tap” by providing this amazing common swipe fingerprint on the screen.
- LG G3 Beat has its surprise pack for selfie features. Using the secondary camera of 1.3 megapixel you simply and only need to
- Show your hand
- Make a fist
- Countdown till three will begin.
This lets you take perfect coz you need not worry about getting your finger rushed in the camera lenses in the last moment shot. For selfies in dark environment LG has their solution of selfie flash. It just makes the screen go smaller and the surrounding bright white so that your face and hand gestured can be clearly followed by. So all those party junkies out there!! Here comes your night club selfie!! Selfie on the groves of your dance floor.
But the phone has its greatest con to its battery life which doesn’t last too long but is just manageable for the day. That is sadly the more time you are with her shorter the battery life will get. That separation indeed is SAD.
Price LG G3 Beat
The price as has been set up is at around 20k average with websites ranging 17,000 to 22,000. Sincerely speaking its too much a price for the features provided. The new smart she is not cheap she takes up cost.
- Brilliant resolution.
- Fluid touchscreen.
- Smooth processor.
- Impressive customized UI.
- Pricey for the specifications.
- Disappointing camera.
- Average battery.
- Slow action due to overload of apps.
Samsung Galaxy S5 Mini vs LG G3 Beat
The Longer, Thicker, and heavier G3 of LG flagship isn’t that great as compared with Samsung S5. But the slim bezel above and below the screen of G3 is real sexy! The Galaxy S5 has the Home Menu and Back button while G3 uses more sophisticated virtual software based versions of the same. Smart LG lets you hide apps which you are not using in the navigation bar making use of full of its 5 inch screen.
Both the phone has “faux” plastic finishes which meeting its odds makes the device look desirable. The G3’s finish isn’t that high end as iPhone 5s or HTC One’s but still the finish it has is noticeable. The little lag you experience from the G3’s quad-processor can be well fixed by switching from Dalvik runtime to Android Runtime (ART). Now the only con left is the battery, which is not fixable to an extent. The more you use the more you lose ”battery”. Galaxy S5’s killer dust and fire resistant feature though seems more appealing than G3’s Knock lock and selfie feature.
The Final Say
So if you are looking for amid range phone with intention of mid range usage LG G3 Beam seems to be a fair option. Although the price is bit high for the specification provided still the cons like nice image reproduction swiping of apps to get full 5.5 inch screen views and ofcourse the features like Knock Lock and Selfie makes it look of use.
