    So a friend bought the LG G3. And as usual, yours truly was in on the action by warranting a check on the phone. Not to disappoint, but factoring in the Flagship status of the G3, I was kind of underwhelmed.

    The phone, with the iPhone 6 next to it for comparison sake.

    I do like the minimum bezel on the sides. Though a uniform color for the front fascia would've been a classier touch. They should've gone with either white or black. Having black at top and white at the bottom kind of spoils the appearance.

    The rear panel of the G3 is a psuedo metallic finish cover, with the laser focus, LED flash on either side of the camera and the power/volume button behind.

    It does take some getting used to, but does fall to hand eventually. I would've preferred an optional system, where in, in addition to the regular buttons that everyone is used to, these 3 buttons would be additional on the back of the device.

    Not only would the additional buttons be useful for macros or some dedicated, programmable tasks, they would give a user the option of using either control, which one so ever preferred.

    The Camera is nice and snappy, with image capture response right up there with the competition. Don't know about the laser focus, but it was definitely seen that the image quality was very decent.

    The screen is a marvel to look at, and just asks for one to reduce the font to the smallest size, since it's still so readable. Contrast was nothing to write about, but still makes a good case for itself.

    This was taken with the stock 4.4.2 on the device. However latest news suggests that LG G3 would be one of the first devices to receive the Android 5.0 Lollipop update. I hope to get a proper hands on then with some images for comparison and some feedback on battery life as well.

    That's about it for now. More on the device as we get the 5.0 update
