The LG G3 is not the newest smartphone on the market, nor the latest flagship from LG. However, Telus, which decided not to join the party when it launched a year ago, has opted to add this Android to its lineup at what would be considered today a mid-range price point.
Targeting the back-to-school crowd, Telus has priced the G3 at $450 outright, while its competitors have the LTE-enabled Android ranging from $500 to $650 no-term. However, the 2-year term is priced $80 more than other Canadian carriers at $100.
As for a refresher of specs, the LG G3 sports a 5.5-inch 2560×1440 pixel (QHD) IPS display, a 2.5Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 SoC, 3GB RAM, 32GB of internal storage (plus a microSD slot), a 13MP rear camera with OIS, a2.1MP front-facing camera, and a 3000 mAh removable battery. LG updated the device to Android 5.0.2 earlier this year, but it’s unclear whether the G3 will ever see a newer version.
That said, better later than never.
