The LG G3 is finally [officially] unveiled to the public
With all the
leaks and teasers
that have been posted about the LG G3
over the past few months
, most people are probably to the point where they are going “Just get on with it already!”
LG offiially rolled out the phone today, confirming quite a few things that we’ve already heard about the phone including its
5.5”, 2560x1440 display
(538 ppi). Onboard is a 2.46GHz Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 2GB of RAM (a model with 3GB of RAM will also be available).
Previous leaks pointed to a Snapdragon 805 processor and 3GB of RAM, so perhaps there will be regional variants with differing specs (it wouldn’t be the first time we’ve seen this from smartphone manufacturers).
Other confirmed features include 16GB of internal storage (a 32GB model will also be available), a 3,000 mAh user-replaceable battery, wireless charging support, 13MP rear camera with Laser Auto Focus and Optical Image Stabilization, 2.1MP front camera, 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and support for microSD cards up to 128GB in size.
For those that were hoping for a metal body, you'll be disappointed -- it still all plastic. However, at least the G3 will be available in a variety of colors including Burgundy Red, Metallic Black, Moon Violet, Shine Gold, and Silk White.
The G3 will launch in LG's home market of South Korea tomorrow, and will be available in the rest of the world starting in June.

16GB minus the OS leaves what, 10GB? maybe less?
thrown in a game or 2 and that's 2-4GB less. then if you have a lot of pics/videos on your mSD then you can remove another gig for the cache for the media (mine is over a gig).
then there's google music. a kid in his basement can make an app that let's you choose where you want to save your files but google doesn't allow this in general. only select phones therefore a few more gigs space wasted on internal storage as opposed to a 64 or 128GB mSD.
some of us root and use xposed mods to get around these limitations but if you don't want to do that then you're out of luck currently.
