LG G3 is an Android smartphone developed by LG Electronics. Serving as a successor to 2013's G2, the G3 was unveiled at a press event on May 27, 2014, and released in South Korea the next day.
Inheriting design elements from the G2, such as its thin screen bezels and rear-mounted power and volume buttons, the G3 is distinguished primarily by being the first smartphone from a major manufacturer to incorporate a quad HD (1440p) display, and its inclusion of an infrared hybrid autofocus system for its camera. LG also touted the device's plastic "metallic skin" - designed to give the device a higher quality appearance, and a "simpler" user interface with an integrated intelligent personal assistant system.
The G3 received mostly positive reviews, with critics praising the overall appearance, performance, display quality, and software of the device. However, several aspects of the G3 were panned, including the company's decision to use a faux metallic plastic instead of actual metal, concerns over the usability of the device due to its large size, and whether the resolution of the display had any real effect on day-to-day usage of the device.
