LG G3 S (G3 Beat) Review

The LG G3 S, as well recognized as LG G3 Beat, is basically a ‘mini’ edition of LG’s LG G3. Bodily, it looks like the LG G3, apart from its smaller size. Nevertheless, the technical aspects of the mini edition are as well fairly inferior to its larger sibling.



The LG G3 Beat boasts a plastic bodywork. Nevertheless, the exterior dull-finish on the back panel compliments the general visuals of the smartphone. Despite the material it’s made of, the headset feels pretty tough and sturdy. The magnitude of the smartphone is perfect; it is incredibly easy to grasp and boasts an excellent one-hand usability.



The LG G3 S has a 5-inch IPS LCD screen which has a resolution of 720 by 1280 pixels. The frontage panel has a headset and a 1.3MP camera, together with some sensors and a warning LED beside it. The laser-aided autofocus system is ideal for quick picture capturing, particularly action shots. The laser pre-centers the frame beforehand and allows the camera to catch the moment fast devoid of you having to miss out on the precise event. The front pane is shiny, and it comes with a factory-built-in screen protector to protect it from unnecessary smudges and scratches. The lack of a scratch-resistant monitor is the grounds for the display guard. However, the display protector, which is made of synthetic, gets scraped pretty soon, which could compel you to change it couple of months.



Like all smartphones accessible in the market, the LG G3 Beat does not have any physical switch on its surfaces for volume, power and the like. As an alternative, it has a physical lock/power button, together with a volume rocker, on its back pane, positioned below the back camera. The 8MP camera rests between the laser focus and an LED flash. A mono speaker is fixed on the base left of the back panel.



The top frame of the phone has an IR source and a voice annulment microphone. The primary microphone, the micro USB and an audio jack are located at the bottom. The LG G3 S weighs 134g and is 10.3 mm thick.



The LG G3 Beat is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that has an Adreno 305 graphics processor, 1GB of RAM and a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor. The smartphone includes an integrated storage space of 8GB that is expandable up to 64GB. Connectivity choices comprise Wi-Fi hotspot, Wi-Fi Direct, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0, a Micro USB 2.0, an NFC and GPS are as well incorporated.



The LG G3 Beat is powered through a Li-ion 2540 mAh battery that is usually estimated to run for 17 -18 hours. Nevertheless, for this smartphone, probably because of the knock on feature, the capacitive tap sensors perpetually active on the screen even on standby modes drain out the battery faster than anticipated.



Whilst this smaller edition of the LG G3 does not match the flagship handset's performance, it is still a decent handset for the value point. In search of a smaller, cheaper device that will assist you take selfies in dim places? The LG G3 Beat is your best option.
