First Phone: The LG G3 Beat
The LG G3 Beat
Designed to serve LG´s mid-range market is the mini version of their flagship G3 model. The G3 Beat sports a 5-inch HD IPS display and an 8-megapixel camera - both only a bit shy of the high-end classification. It runs on a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and is powered by a 2450mAh Li-Ion battery. Imaging-wise, its 8-megapixel camera (with a 1.3-mp front cam) is easily above other middle class Androids. The 8GB internal memory doubles up the class average as well. Despite classified as a high-tech mid-range device - with its 4G LTE and laser auto-focus, among others - it only has a 1GB RAM. Also, we were unable to find any special music feature the name Beat could be hinting to.
