I come from the G2, and damn it was a killer phone. It's about time that manufacturers take a step back on screen size and resolution dick contests; I would greatly appreciate an actual sub-flagship with a 5.0-5.2" FHD screen, SD slot and >3000mAh battery on lollipop.
I don't need a phone with a 5 inch display that can do 4k. I need a phone that is all round good. A great 1080p. great camera. Storage for micro SD and a CPU/GPU That will power it. AND A BATTERY THAT WILL LAST FOR 3 DAYS. And removable. Not a phone with over powered CPU/GPU. sub standard camera and a stinking 4k display. while the phone lasts a half day on a charge!!!!
What a terrible article. I have a G3 and I love it. The "weakest phone of the bunch"? It was the best phone at the time, compare it to the S5- Faster clocked CPU, 1GB more RAM, 16GB more storage, and higher screen resolution. My phone has always been very fast, no lag, it made me swtich from Samsung to LG. The rear buttons and the screen double tap are great.
Metal is overrated, I'd rather have a durable plastic phone with good signal reception (as plastics better allow for cell signals to pass through) than a metal, dent and tarnishable phone. Plus let's not forget the inability (or rather unwillingness) for manufacturers to make a metal phone with removable battery and micro SD components
For me, battery life is a priority. I agree that the QHD display trend on phones seems to be a peen contest. LG G2 still beats both on battery life - 34 hours vs 19 hours.
Just got the lollipop update for G2 and loving it. Until they can match the battery life of the G2 using QHD, I'll pass. Rather get a QHD tablet with a 8"+ screen that really takes advantage of the higher resolution. 1080p is more than enough for a phone.
While most manufacturers rely on plastic, glass or metal, the Korean has chosen him to opt for genuine leather.
A bold choice, which does not necessarily seduce all users, but which has at least the merit to stand out.
