We imagine LG is feeling pretty good about themselves as of late. Their last few Android phones and tablets have received critical acclaim, and even if they aren't topping the sales charts just yet the name is out there and people are starting to equate it with "really good Android phones".

Of course, you'll also want to capitalize on the success of your popular models, and the introduction of the LG G3 Vigor — a smaller, more base-model (read: inexpensive) phone carrying much of the same look and feel of the flagship whose name it carries makes perfect sense.
Lets have a look at the G3 Vigor, and see how it measures up.
