BRIEF: G3 not just 'Yet Another Android Phone'

July 13, 2014

By Jessica Van Sack, Boston Herald



July 14--LG G3 (AT&T Wireless, $199.99 on-contract)

LG's new flagship smartphone boasts a ridiculously high-resolution display (2,560x1,440-pixels). Its goal? To be more than what I like to call a "YAAP" -- Yet Another Android Phone.

The good: This phone is definitely not a "YAAP." Though LG has always been in the shadow of Samsung smartphones, the stunning matte display on its 5.5-inch screen make it a cutting-edge stunner. The 13MP camera is fantastic, with extra-fast focusing. A powerful quad-core processor, removable battery and microSD slot round out this solid offering.

The bad: All that high-definition isn't great for battery life. But it was no worse than the iPhone 5S.

The bottom line: This is my favorite Android phone of the moment. Don't hesitate to take the plunge.
