LG G3 S

 

The G3 spin-off is a mid-range phone with misplaced priorities

Impressive battery life ; Comfortable, near bezel-free design ; Smooth performance

Disappointing camera ; No ambient light sensor

and LG G2 would make strong, Full HD, alternatives in the sub-£250 space.

LG G3 S review: Moderate mid-ranger

 

LG has enjoyed plenty of success with its flagship smartphones of late, and the LG G3 S wants to capitalise on this, offering a mini take on flagship design. The LG G3 S offers something of a mixed bag and fails to impress like its flagship bigger...

Compact handset for display size, good camera

Mixed battery performance, interface a little slow in places, poor reception at times

The LG G3 S offers something of a mixed bag and fails to impress like its flagship bigger brother.

The LG G3 s brings flagship design to the mid-market (hands-on) - Pocket-lint

 

LG announced a smaller version of its LG G3 back in July and among plenty of exciting gadgets including the LG G Watch R, the LG G3 s made an appearance

LG G3 S review

 

A cut down LG G3 in more than just size

Metal-effect look ; Decent battery life ; IR transmitter

Fairly weak value ; Lower screen res than rivals ; Low internal storage

A smaller LG G3 makes sense, but the G3 S is cut-down in every respect without cutting the price quite enough to make it a good deal.

LG G3 S Review: In Depth

 

It's a trend that's been taking shape for some time, but the small flagship smartphone is well and truly dead in 2014 and the LG...

Attractive design ; Good battery life ; Great connectivity

Lacklustre performance ; Weak camera experience ; Plastic construction

If you’re after a premium user experience, the LG G3 S can undoubtedly deliver. It also packs a contemporary design and number of helpful and handy features; it just a shame that the end result isn’t particularly memorable..

LG G3 S pairs flagship stylings with low-end specs

 

The LG G3 S has a near-identical look to its flagship big brother, but has a smaller screen and runs on low-end tech.

The LG G3 S has the same attractive styling as its big brother, its camera can take good shots and the laser-assisted autofocus is quick to lock on to your subject.

Its processor puts in a very poor performance, its screen resolution doesn't impress, it comes with a pitiful amount of storage and it's running on an old version of Android KitKat.

The LG G3 S may come with the same name and physical design as its flagship brother, but the similarities are only skin deep. The G3 S's specs have been watered down in every way, making this little more than a low-end phone in a high-end body with a...

LG G3 S hands-on review

 

The LG G3 S doesn't have an official price from LG yet, but thanks to its appearance on Mobile Fun for pre-order, we know to expect a price tag around the £300 mark, matching the price of the Google Nexus 5.

The LG G3 S is a very good-looking phone with specs and features that'll suit most users, but at £299 it doesn't weigh up too well with the similarly priced Nexus 5, which is actually also made by LG, which has a better processor, better display and...

Quick Review: LG G3 Beat

 

Drawing inspiration from its flagship brethren, the LG G3 Beat is a great all round performer that hits all the right mid-range notes.

Solid all round performance; A smaller carbon copy design of the flagship G3; Well priced

A propensity to heat up under heavy use

LG G3 S review

 

The small (S) version of LG's G3 hero phone retains the distinctive style while cutting the price pretty much in half. But has LG cut too much to make it worth your while?

Cool design, fine display, okay camera, decent processor, expandable memory

Battery life not as good as it could be, spec struggles to distinguish itself against similarly priced rivals

LG G3 S review: A mid-range smartphone with the wrong priorities

 

Can LG compete against some tough competition in a crowded market?

Battery life ; PREVIOUS ARTICLETesco Hudl 2 review: The best value tablet?NEXT ARTICLEHTC One M9 review ; User interface ; Size

Internal storage ; Sluggish performance

The G3 S may look like a smaller G3, but it doesn't quite live up to LG's flagship device.
