LG’s G3 sets the new benchmark for overpowered smartphones
If it were a laptop, its Quad HD resolution would be impressive. If it were a camera, its laser autofocus would be an advantage. But the LG G3 is a smartphone, and as such, it’s the most advanced one we’ve seen yet. If you are the sort of person who values top-end specs above all else, LG is ready for you. Like the G2 before it, the G3’s front is almost all screen. Thanks to thin bezels on all sides, almost 77 percent of the device’s footprint is occupied by its 5.5-inch IPS display. With a resolution of 2560 x 1440 and such an aggressively minimal design, the G3 fits a lot of pixels into not a lot of space. LG’s new handset is as tall as HTC’s 5-inch One and Sony’s 5.2-inch Xperia Z2, while being lighter than both. The sense of extreme efficiency is pervasive with this phone.

If that actually happens, it could dramatically close the gap between the two oft-opposed forces — tech and fashion — that are driving the market for wristwatches today.
