It's an LG G3, on Verizon
When it comes to U.S. versions of the LG G3, the one most folks have asked us about is Verizon's. So, we picked up Verizon's LG G3, which we present to you now.
For all intents and purposes, what we're looking at is the same as the AT&T model we've had for nearly a week, as well as the Korean and European models we've had for a month or so now. Same 5.5-inch QHD (as in Quad, as in 2560x1440) resolution. Same rear buttons, same 13-megapixel rear camera with frickin' lasers for autofocus. Three gigabytes of RAM, and 32GB (with about 24GB available) of on-board storage, with microSD card expansion. Same Android 4.4.2 on top of LG's UI and a number of custom apps. Same removable 3,000 mAh battery.
This is the LG G3 we reviewed a bit ago.
So what's different about Verizon's? As is usually the case these days, it comes down to the software that's on board. (And, yes, the logos on the phone. Get over that. Or don't.) Verizon's included a suite of Amazon apps, which it's been doing for a while now. (And that includes a fast pipe to the Amazon Appstore.) You'll also find the usual cadre of Verizon apps that you might or might not use, depending on if you know better. In the box is just a charger and microUSB cable.
There is no wireless Qi charging out of the box. (Not that we expected it, but that rumor's been floating around.)
And that's it, folks. We'll report back later on battery life and anything else that stands out. For now, be sure to check out all our LG G3 stories, swing by our LG G3 forums to see what other folks are talking about, and hit up ShopAndroid.com for any LG G3 accessories you might need.
