LG G3 Live Demo Unit Experience

Over the weekend, I finally got the chance to visit the LG Store in SM Megamall and experience their newest flagship, the LG G3. 

More details after the jump

I am impressed with the grip, display, cameras, back buttons, and speakers. Here are some of the things I've noticed while using the demo unit: [Photos included below]
  • They have 2 demo units, one in Black and the other in Gold. Both units have 16GB internal memory, but I cant verify its RAM. I've tested Gold unit as I am considering to get the Gold or Moon Purple variant.
  • At first, you really won't feel/distinguish the 2K display, unless you launch the camera, or play the sample 2K video in the gallery. 
  • The speaker, though located at the back, is surprsingly loud even on an open area like in the experience store.
  • The grip, you will not think that this phone is using a 5.5 inches screen. I've used the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 in the past, and Note 2's bigger than the LG G3.
  • The phone itself feels premium. You really won't think it's made of plastic. It's lighter than the Z2 and new HTC One.
  • I love the new, redesigned back buttons. It feels so elegant compared to G2's back buttons
  • Both cameras performs really well. At least at well lit areas where I tested it. I am sure it will perform well on low light too, just like the G2 because of it's OIS. The autofocus is way faster in G3 (if I compare it with my G2). Very impressive indeed, thanks to its laser.
  • The UI is refreshing. It is very flat, and uses subtle colors which is a plus for me. I noticed some lags, but it's not disturbing and it's almost the same as the G2.
If you want to experience the LG G3 before purchasing or reserving one thru pre-order, visit any LG Experience stores listed on my previous post.
