For quite some time, the smart phone market was owned by Apple, Samsung and Nokia and then we saw some of the best smart phone models from LG. LG is a huge worldwide well-known brand in electronics especially in home appliances and then this company made its debt in smart phone manufacturing.
In the beginning, there weren’t any models from the manufacturer that could make any difference in the market with other brands but last year with the release of G2, LG introduced something quite interesting and unique. LG G2 was and still the best smart phone in the cell phone market and even if it’s been a year that this model was released, people still like and prefer this mobile over other high class smart phones i.e. Samsung and Nokia.
It was quite nice to see something quite astonishing from LG but that’s not it. Although LG made its point clear that it can also make good smart phones but it was time to introduce something new in the market to compete with Samsung Galaxy S5, iPhone 5 and Google Nexus 5. Thus we were introduced with LG G3, a new model with some of the same features as its previous one.
Here we are going to compare these two models by LG and we will see what changed have made in G3.
This model was released in the market in September 2013 and from that time, it has been one of the best smart phones in the market and even if it’s a year, people still like this model very much. We know that G2 has acquired a really good and top position in the market even if there are dozens of other smart phones are available in the market. LG G2 is a bigger device as compared to most of the other devices in the market but it still has the appealing looks and sleek exterior that it doesn’t feel bigger while keeping in hands.

While talking about the hardware of the LG G2, it includes a Qualcomm snapdragon 800 chipset with Quad-Core processor rating 2.26GHz and Adreno 300 as GPU. As this phone has a separate processor for graphics and UI, it makes the picture quality brighter and deep in details. G2 also has 2GB of Ram which makes it one of the fastest smart phones in the market.

The phone is available in two different internal memory options with either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage memory and the feature to increase the memory with external SD cards up to 64GB. The phone runs on 3000mAh battery which was quite bigger as compared to most of the smart phones back then and even it’s been a year, it still have bigger battery than most of the latest models.
