THE LG G3 S HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. PLEASE SEE THE ALTERNATIVE OPTIONS HERE.
LG G3 S Overview
The original LG G3 was widely regarded as one of the best smartphones to be released during the Summer of 2014. With an incredibly eye-catching design and available in 3 sumptuous colours, the G3 was the pinnacle of smartphone technology when it hit the shelves.
With the new G3 S, you can now enjoy the beautiful design and LG feature set in a smaller package.
The metallic skin (available in Shine Gold, Black Titanium, or Silk White) is great for minimising unsightly smudges and always looks pristine. This rear cover is also quickly removable, to give you instant access to the battery, SD and SIM card slots.
The curved arc of the body allows the G3 S to sit comfortably into the hand, with thin edges and a suitably solid centre to provide balanced weight for one-handed use.
The screen resolution has been reduced on the smaller G3 S, with it boasting a 5 inch IPS LCD 720 x 1080 HD display. Powering the handset is the very capable Qualcomm Snapdragon 400, the current processor of choice for mid-range phones and more than able to run the vast majority of apps and games available on Google Play.
One of the standout features of the G3 was the laser autofocus for the main camera. This is retained in the G3 S, so you can instantly capture great shots and get your subjects in focus. The Optical Image Stabilisation (OIS) also ensures a reduction in blur so even those with shaky hands can still get a crisp image.
Alongside all this you can enjoy some other unique LG features such as the Smart Keyboard which learns your typing style with great word recognition and intelligent suggestions. LG's Quick Memo+ is another useful tool for taking down quick notes or editing images on the fly.
