Not long after LG posts an official teaser for its upcoming QHD G3 smartphone, leaked press renders hit the web

Late yesterday, LG posted a teaser video of its upcoming G3 smartphone which gave some fleeting glances at the phone including close-ups of its image stabilized rear camera. You can see the video here:

Not long after, however, Phone Arena gave us the full goods by posting leaked renders of the actual device. The G3 will be available in three colors: Gold, Titan Grey, and Silver. The close-up shots also show what appears to be a brushed metal backplate, but Phone Arena states that this could very well be a traditional polycarbonate shell textured to look like brushed metal.

The phone’s most talked about feature, however, is its 5.5”, 2560x1440 (QHD) display with 538 pixels per inch (PPI). We’ve already heard from Huawei Consumer Business Group CEO Richard Yu that QHD screens are “nonsense” and “a stupid thing,” but Toshiba obviously sees some benefit in this display "arms race."
Other reported features included a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 13MP rear camera, and of course the latest version of Android 4.4.x KitKat.

To get complete details on the LG G3, we’ll have to wait for its May 27 official reveal.

I just spoke of LG's GRAM trick, I'm very familiar with it, however I don't think you quite understand the difference between LCD and OLED.

LG's GRAM saves battery life by stopping the GPU from doing pointless refreshes when it doesn't need to. However the pixels are still being lit by the backlight.

OLED displays have no backlight. When you see black on an OLED screen, there's NO light source behind it. It's simply not using ANY power.

So I'm not sure exactly what point you're trying to make. But you have utterly failed in refuting my claim that OLED displays are inherently more efficient.

They are. LG came up with a cool trick, but that doesn't change the fact of the matter.

Not everyone needs to be educated. I understand how they work. Your comment was on battery life. Regardless of your view on displays the measurable outcome is usable battery life regardless of how it's achieved. I have owned AMOLED phones before. S3/S4. They don't come close to the G2's superlative battery life, LCD or AMOLED.

But you quoted him about the OLED vs LCD stuff. You implied that it was relevant to what you said. I'm a bit confused...

It's been a confusing day here for sure lol.
