What other phones offer a removable battery, micro SD, good battery life, beautiful display, and flagship specs?
The downside for the G3 is the screen: yes it's gorgeous since it's QHD but it murders the battery life, plain, simple, and a fact.
I had one, loved it but that battery life was fucking abysmal and even with it being removable and having the option to carry another battery (or two depending) wasn't enough to make me keep it.
LG came out with a stripped down G3 called the Vigor so I got one: it's a Snapdragon 400 so obviously it's not as powerful but it's a quad core 1.2 GHz CPU, and the smaller 5" display has a resolution of 1280x720 which is perfect for that size (fuck FHD and anything higher, it's a waste of pixels).
No it's not a full blown G3 but is has pretty much everything else:
- laser focus on the camera (down from the 13 to just 8 Megapixels, I can live with it)
- removable battery
- microSD slot
- gorgeous albeit smaller screen
- similar battery capacity
- Snapdragon 400 is a battery sipping bitch, seriously
- i regularly get 8 hours of SOT and go 2-2.5 days between plugging in for a charge
It's everything the G3 could have been in some respects and I'm damned happy with it. Do I miss the actual G3 I had? Nope, 'cause this is exactly what I wanted all along.
And yes, there's a working root for it but nobody seems to care about developing any ROMs. No big deal to me since a) the current KitKat ROM is fucking awesome - dat battery life once again - and b) I can't fucking stand Lollipop so I'll never be updating it to that sorry fucking OS.
All carriers nerf battery life with every update. There's not a single carrier out there that doesn't use this to their advantage. It's their way of getting you to cave and throw out your old phone every year.
The fact that 10 mins after I got home with it I went to AT&T's website where you can get the unlock code online for free, punched in the IMEI and 13 hours later I got the carrier unlock code and I now use it with T-Mobile's $30/month 5GB plan which was the intention all along.
Not to mention I got the phone for $55 'cause I know people...
Did they seriously spell "L" phonetically?
I'm a shill for repeating already released info, OK.
>Interestingly, the G4 is priced by Korean carriers at a slightly higher price than we expected. Korea Telecom is offering the device for the equivalent of $825, compared to $795 for the Galaxy S6 32GB, but lower than Galaxy S6 Edge 32GB ($910).
No, apparently they(LG) believe that the new G4's luxury qualities deserve a higher price. The vegetable tanned leather has them really confident.
Personally, the leather itself looks very nice but the stitch in the middle and the button makes it look too much like a zipper to me.
