LG G3 Smartphone: Recommended to wait for LG G4
LG G3 got a little more powerful hardware than its predecessor, but a significant increase in display resolution offsetting this advantage. As a result – the overall performance fell slightly compared with last year’s flagship. Nevertheless, general user will not notice this reduction. In general – the loss of power is not particularly scary because of its overabundance and so the body can be a little lower, and no one will notice.
As you know, the producer has kept the battery capacity of the new smartphone at the level of 3000 mAh. In this case, the screen resolution has increased significantly, the power consumption of a more powerful processor overclocked, At the time of presentation of the marketing message of the company was as follows: “battery life of LG G3 remained at LG G2”. Somehow, we already did not believe in this statement. In short: everything is very bad compared to G2. For comparison – G2 at the same time if a similar pattern of use is usually at least another 50% of the batteries and confidently survive until late at night, showing 15-20 hours total work and at least 5 hours of active screen, and more – 6-8 hours sometimes about 9. If we talk about naked figures of battery life of LG G3, in this case we get 8-15 hours of phone, including 2-4 hours of active screen on a single battery charge with mixed use in networks 3G / WiFi and about 5 hours more only when operating in the network WiFi.
What conclusions can be drawn from the graphs of power consumption – no anomalies noted. It’s not the Android eats battery, and programs and services. It is seen that the main consumer – the display. That is logical. Unfortunately, no miracle – more powerful hardware and a higher resolution screen consumes more power. As a consequence – the fall of the battery life of about 2-fold compared to the LG G2. It is sad but true.
At the same time, in fairness it should be noted that these figures would satisfy most average users who do not stick the whole day in the smartphone screen (you often meet these lately?). In addition to the justification may be noted that the same popular iPhone 5S shows similar results and nothing, everyone is happy. In general – we have what we have!
From visual differences – in the new smartphone is eye laser module to the left of the camera focus and dual LED flash visible on the right. The appointment of the first element is a fast focusing, especially in low light conditions. Unequivocal plus – and works fine. We note a huge difference in the speed of the focus in the normal and good light compared to G2 (the camera which became faster after upgrading to 4.4.2) is not observed. But in low light laser focus of G3 is clearly faster than the optical focus G2.
The story won’t end here, LG G4 is on the line to release which would be better and there would be a price drop for G3 for sure, so you could wait for few months and see the magical gadget of Android yet to arrive and there are rumors that LG G4 might be powerful to the Samsung’s beast yet to be arrive like Samsung Galaxy Note 5.
