The year is about to end and 2014 was one of the best years for smartphone fans. Lots of smartphones were released and few got very popular around the globe and these few are LG G3 from LG, Apple iPhone 6 from Apple and Galaxy Note 4 from Samsung. But LG G3 is voted as best designed phone.

If we talk specially talk about G3, LG G3 exists in several versions: with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of ROM and 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of ROM. And there, and there is a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset 801 with a frequency of 2.5 GHz, graphics accelerator Adreno 330. On the gaming performance a significant effect of increasing the amount of RAM does not have, but multi-tasking and switching between programs occurs significantly more comfortable. In benchmarks difference must be miserable.

With games at LG G3, you would not experience problems in spite of concerns about the 2K-resolution, they say, will lag because Snapdragon 801 allegedly not cope with it. In fact, Dead Trigger 2 with maximum graphics may slightly brakes only, Asphalt 8, NOVA 3 and Need For Speed ??Most Wanted go flawlessly. In general, LG G3 behaves almost exactly as Full HD-smartphones same chipset (GTA San Andreas lag exactly the way). But the overall user experience of the interface Optimus gives perfectly smooth. Micro-lags were in G2, G Pad 8.3 and a bit there in G3, despite the recycled shell.

The battery capacity has remained the same as in G2 – 3000 mAh. It is logical that due to the increased resolution, increased diagonal and a small difference between energy efficiency Snapdragon 800 and 801 LG G3 model can’t work longer than G2. However, the difference in the discharge is small and if you are satisfied with running time G2 (and it is very good), the G3 will not disappoint you. Video playback with maximum brightness of the screen and all operating wireless modules LG G3 lasted 6.5 hours (G2 endured a little over 7.5 hours). The game NOVA 3 digit half-hour was 13% versus 15% in G2. That is, in the productive tasks new flagship is not inferior to the old, and extended battery life while watching a video can be very simple – the lower the brightness and cut off unnecessary wireless modules.

According to the Stability Test, the phone briefly hold the CPU frequency at the maximum level of 2.5 GHz and consistent heat and gradually reduces its highly flexible controls during the loading process. From the initial 31.8 degrees battery temperature rose half an hour to 45.5 degrees. The effect of throttling not felt during games.

With heating things expected “normal” for its filling. The game NOVA 3 per half hour battery warmed up to 42 degrees and the phone was quite comfortable – the hottest area is the camera, and the glass can be touched without fear. If you walk in the hot sun (with a temperature outside the window about 30-35 degrees) and shoot a lot of photos and videos, then get ready for the fact that the regime 4K heat can reach 55 degrees.

But still, G3 is a beast of 2014 and now LG is going to release G4 and LG G5 in 2015, which will make the game more interesting.
