LG have started sending out press devices of the new LG G3 so that sites can get reviews up, and that means the general public should also be able to purchase one shortly.
We heard lots of talk that the G3 will launch in the UK on the 1st July, but we now have a date from Three which puts the release even earlier on the 26th June… just a few days away!
There are three different price plans on offer, and great to see a PAYG price right from launch.
- £35 a month gets you 600 Minutes, Unlimited Texts and AYCE data
- £35 gets you AYCE Minutes, AYCE texts and 2GB of data
- £38 a month gets you AYCE Minutes, Unlimited Texts and AYCE data
- PAYG costs £499.99 plus top-up
The device on offer is the 16GB black model only, so no luck if you’re after white or gold. However, with the G3 now confirmed to hit the UK in just a few days and various sites having their press units for review, expect there to be a LOT of LG G3 content over the next week.
With a new laser focus 13 megapixel camera, outstanding battery life and a 2K resolution screen, the LG G3 is set to be one of the best phones of the year, also thanks to the amazing almost bezel-less design.
Pre-order for the fantastic LG G3 is now open.
The LG G3 is a special phone in many ways. For those in the know, a Quad HD screen is definitely something to shout about. For those not, in layman’s terms it basically means more pixels per inch, resulting in a visual feast for the eyes. To say that it’s sharp and crisp and that the colours are vivid, would be an understatement! And all on a 5.5 inch screen. Lovely stuff.
Couple this with a beautiful and sleek metallic body that feels really comfortable in your hand and it’s easy to see this is a premium phone.
But the G3 is not only winning on the aesthetic front. It’s also home to a whopping 3000 mAH removable battery and inbuilt wireless charging. That equates to some pretty serious battery life.
It comes with an already impressive 16GB of storage, but there’s also Micro SD card slot which gives up 128GB of storage on top of that.
LG have had a little fun with the G3 as well, with arguably one of its coolest features. The humble ‘Selfie’ is the focus here. Imagine if you didn’t have to press a button to take your selfie? I think we can all agree it would make the process a whole lot easier and the results a whole lot better! LG have realised this too. The G3 has a handy ‘selfie mode’, which is activated by a simple hand gesture that sets off a timer. So not only do you not have to press a button to activate, but you also get a bit of time to perfect your pose. Selfie-tastic! (erm…)
As you’d expect with a premium smartphone, the rest of the camera is pretty good too, with 13MP and OIS (Optical Image Stabalisation) not to mention laser distance measuring technology and a quick focus lens for really clear, professional looking photos.
With people using their phones for more and more things these days, phone security is becoming that much more important. People want to know that if their phone fell in to the wrong hands, it wouldn’t automatically mean a security compromise. LG recognize this and have incorporated a couple of key security features. Knock Code is a discreet way to wake up and unlock your phone. It uses a unique pattern that you can hide from view. And if the worst happens and you’re no longer in possession of your phone, you can use Kill Switch to either disable or completely wipe your G3 remotely.
The G3 is a great addition to the Three family, with the amazing battery and selfie mode, it seems like the perfect phone to take on holiday. With Feel at Home in 11 destinations around the world (and a further 5 to come on July 1st), pre-order your G3 now and you’ll have it just in time for the summer holidays, where you can holiday brag using the selfie mode to your heart’s content. Just please, brag responsibly
