Verizon LG G3 Review: The Android Smartphone, Perfected.

g3featThe LG G3 is one hell of an Android device, boasting a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM and a 5.5 inch Quad HD display. With specs like these, Apple will certainly find themselves in trouble by the time the iPhone 6 lands in the fall. With the G3, LG has taken the guts of a…

Save $100 on the new king of Android phones

LG G3 Discount Sale

BGR reviewed LG's G3 smartphone earlier this week and we called it the new king of Android phones. The flagship devices features cutting-edge specs and is the first mass-market smartphone to sport a quad HD (2K) display with a pixel density of 538 pixels per inch, making it sharper than anything else on the market by a landslide. Despite the fact that the G3 just launched in the United States last week, interested consumers can already get their hands on this great smartphone for $100 off the standard purchase price.

Here’s how Verizon’s Android bloatware might become the best ever

Verizon LG G3 Bloatware Uninstall

One of the reasons users passionately hate carriers is the bloatware they fill Android devices with, as in many cases a mobile operator’s app collection that comes preloaded on a new handset may be somewhat difficult to remove for an average user. In some countries, there already are laws that require carriers to let their subscribers delete any apps they want on a handset, but that’s hardly a widespread practice. Luckily for Verizon customers, Big Red is willing to make some changes to its approach to bloatware, Droid-Life reports, starting with the LG G3.

Flagship G3 drives record smartphone sales for LG

LG Earnings Q2 2014

BGR recently reviewed LG's new flagship G3, which just launched last week in the United States. We called the phone Android's new king, supplanting Samsung's lackluster Galaxy S5, which has been something of a disappointment for many consumers and for Samsung's bottom line. While LG has a long way to go before it catches up to Samsung in terms of shipments, the company on Thursday reported record smartphone sales for the second quarter.

REVIEW — LG G3: Android has a new king

LG G3 Review

As I walked through Times Square on my way to the office one day last week, something odd caught my eye that made me do a double take. A sizable line had formed outside of the AT&T store as it prepared to open. I have seen people line up outside of that store before, of course, but typically only when a fresh batch of recently launched iPhones is waiting on the other side of the doors.

This time, however, people weren't lining up to buy a new iPhone. They were lining up for the just-released LG G3.

And truth be told, this is a phone worth lining up for.

LG sells a record 14.5 million smartphones as profits nearly triple

http://o.aolcdn.com/dims-global/dims3/GLOB/resize/600x400/http://www.blogcdn.com/slideshows/images/slides/267/695/6/S2676956/slug/l/mg-8479-800-wm-1.jpg

LG has just reported a record quarter for mobile phone sales, showing that it's taking advantage of a slump from arch-rival Samsung. LG sold 14.5 million handsets over the last quarter, its highest total ever and 20 percent more than last year -- with more than a third of those LTE models. It chalked up most of the success to its well-reviewed top-of-the-line G3 handset, along with strong sales of its mid-range L products. LG's mobile division scooped up KRW 3.6 trillion ($3.5 billion) and put an end to three straight quarters of losses. Home entertainment also performed well, climbing 3 percent on the strength of higher-margin UltraHD 4K sets. All that resulted in an operating profit of KRW 412 billion ($599 million) -- not nearly Samsung-level numbers, but at least LG's are going up, not down.

No, LG, we don’t want to play in your circle

LG G3 QuickCircle Apps and Games

The LG G3 is one of the latest Android beasts to hit stores, and one of the few smartphones that actually packs a high-resolution 2K display that offers users an even better mobile experience, whether they’re browsing the web, watching videos or – especially – playing games. So why on earth would you want G3 buyers to play games that occupy only a tiny portion of that gorgeous new display, LG?

LG wants you to play games through your phone case

Puppy Pop on an LG G3

Are you an impulsive gamer? So impulsive that you can't even wait to unlock your phone before you start playing? If so, LG is entirely willing to cater to that (frankly disconcerting) behavior. The company has just launched Puppy Pop, the first game designed to work with the G3's QuickCircle case. It's a clever demo of what that round case window allows, although it's only a game in the loosest sense of the word. All you're doing is matching as many puppy heads as you can before time runs out -- it might do for a quick diversion at the bus stop, but it's not hard to see this wearing thin over time. You can grab the app today if you're curious, although you might want to wait for more substantial titles down the road -- or better yet, unlock your G3 and make full use of the phone you paid for.
