Review: LG G3 for Sprint

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  6  

The G3 is an excellent effort from LG. It evolves from last year's flagship in exactly the right way by fixing the G2's problems while carving out its own identity.

The G3 is a classy, well-made phone that offers the best display currently available from a smartphone. The materials are better, the button design is cleaner, and everything about the phone functions well. Perhaps the only downside of the hardware is the large size, which sometimes requires two hands for proper use.

I was unimpressed by the G3's ability to work on Sprint's network. It wasn't great at connecting to LTE despite solid coverage, and call quality was well below average. The battery is a behemoth.

LG's revised user interface skin is its best yet. It cuts down on the visual clutter and is simpler and cleaner throughout. LG made huge changes to the camera and they really pay off. The simplified user interface is a snap to use. Some may complain it lacks features, but I say it lacks clutter. It doesn't hurt that the 13-megapixel sensor produces great pictures and video.

The G3 represents LG at the top of its game. The Samsung Galaxy S5 and HTC One (M8) are compelling, but the G3 has plenty of its own appeal. If you're on the fence about which flagship to buy, I implore you to go to your local Sprint store and look at the G3's gorgeous screen before you make a decision.
