LG worked hard to wrestle control of the Android smartphone market from fellow Korean tech company Samsung in 2013 when it released the G2 flagship handset.
Despite featuring a host of top-end internal components and an innovative design that placed the phone's physical home, power and volume buttons on the handset's back, Samsung remained on top in 2013 and the Galaxy S4 maintained its lead as the year's top-selling Android smartphone.
Unwilling to throw in the towel, LG has come out swinging in 2014, unveiling its latest G3 Android smartphone. Featuring the same rear button placement as the G2, but with an upgraded Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 5.5in 2560x1440, 538ppi Quad HD display and "advanced" 13MP rear camera, the G3 on paper matches, if not beats, the specs of Samsung's current Galaxy S5.
O2 has confirmed that it will stock the G3 in early July, although there is currently no word on price. Check back with V3 later for a full review of the LG G3.
