LG is still trying to stretch the life out of their LG G3 by introducing a new Steel Blue color that is now available at Best Buy for only $99.99 – on the Verizon, AT&T or Sprint networks – no mention of T-Mobile. The color blue is my favorite and it makes you wonder why LG waited so long to release this version…it is quite sharp looking. You will save over $100 off the normal price when it was first announced at the end of May 2014. It has sold quite well, but the excitement surrounding the first real mass produced QHD display on a smartphone has slowly died down now that more models are available – maybe the new Steel Blue will rekindle the sales a bit.
The LG G3 inherited the design elements for it G2 predecessor – the thin bezels, rear mounted power and volume buttons. The LG G3 added the QHD display with a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels and a new laser focusing system for the main camera. They also added the rounded back with a metallic looking material, which turned out to be plastic, but looks great, although it can get a little slippery in your hands.
Once you get past the QHD display, the LG G3 features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor clocked at 2.5GHz. It comes with 3GB of RAM with 32GB of internal storage or 2GB with 16GB and either model has a microSD card slot to expand your internal memory up to 128GB. The main camera is a 13MP shooter with dual LED Flash, OIS+ and Laser focus for both quick and accurate focusing. The front-facing camera (FFC) is 2.1MP for video chatting and the occasional selfies. Power is provided by a 3000mAh removable battery. The LG G3 also sports an IR Blaster, FM radio and wireless charging. It is running Android 4.4 KitKat with its Optimus UI and is readying for its upgrade to 5.0 Lollipop.
