What people are saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this phone! I've had this phone for over two years and I'm still very happy with it. My favorite features are the knock to turn on/off the screen and the three buttons on the back. These features make the phone very natural to handle and use and give it a futuristic feel. The front camera could be better but for a 2+ year old phone, I think it's okay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LG G3, unreal performance, excellent design PLEASE don't stop making phones like this. LG got this perfect. Large crystal clear screen, amazing battery life, SD card slot, very very fast download speeds. Dear LG, please DO NOT make the same mistake as the rest, KEEP the SD card slot and leave the battery removable, it's what the people want. Thanks for a fantastic phone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best phones available! What's there to say? This is a flagship phone and it is outstanding. Phenomenal in all categories, and the only thing I can say (not a complaint) is that I wish the resolution was somehow customizable. I would cut it in half to conserve battery power because WQHD (2K resolution) is overkill for the majority of tasks on a phone. I can't wait for Android 5 Lollipop to roll out for my LG LVS985...
