LG G3 s

It was only yesterday when LG announced the Beat / G3 s, which caters for consumers looking for a mid-range Android smartphone. Today, LG Germany revealed that the new mobile phone will set purchases back €349. The G3 Beat and "G3 s" are the same phone — those in Asia will get the G3 Beat and Europe will receive the "LG G3 s". It's also stated by LG Germany that the G3 s will launch sometime in August, presumably alongside other nearby markets.

To quickly recap on some of the specifications, the G3 s comes with a 5-inch display at 720p, an 8MP camera and a lower price. It also shares the same looks of its more advanced sibling, the LG G3. There's also a 2,540 mAh battery — only about 15 percent less capacity than the G3 proper — and everything helps power Android 4.4.2 KitKat with the same UI. We'll hopefully have more details on other regions where the LG G3 Beat will be launching at a later date.

Will you be looking to pick one up?

LG G3 s (aka Beat) to be priced at €349 in Europe, launching next month


You have got to be kidding me. Get the Moto G LTE for only $220 USD for the same spec, except you'll have to live with a lightly lower quality camera, but you'll get non bloat interface, with fast updates, water resistant nano coating, and better customer service. The smaller battery life on the Moto G is no slouch either.

I know right? If you are going to put a SD 400 and 1GB of ram it needs to compete with other phones with those specs. They're hoping people will buy it high because it has g3 smacked on it

you bring up a really interesting point i hadnt thought of... why do manufacturers make mid-range devices of whatever their flagship is? isnt the previous generation essentially that?

like, if i'm TRULY looking at buying a mid-range such as this phone, an S5 mini, or an htc e8, then why wouldnt i just save even a few more dollars and get an S4, a G2, or an M7?? (or, of course, a nexus 5 LOL)...

If I want a phone. I want a flagship. No variants. Well, except that a Google Play Edition is always on my want list.

Might as well get last years G2. Phone still runs flawlessly and extremely speedy even after a year. The best thing is how much the price dropped

My G2 looked at me pondering about the G3 s, and it said to me, "REALLY? No, I mean REALLY?".

Then 1080p, and a SnapDragon 800 with an Audreno 330 kicked in.
