The LG G3 is a phone I have been very keen to see in the flesh since it was announced earlier this year.
I consider myself a resolution junkie - always favouring higher resolution screens for my mobile, tablet and laptops.
QHD seemed like an insane leap forward for a 5" screen - it had to be better than anything else on the market, right?
Well, I finally got my hands on the G3 at 2 Degrees yesterday. When comparing side by side with my Z2, the difference in screen appearance is so minimal, it's almost impossible to tell the difference. If pushed, I would say that the G3 even looked a little 'over-resoluted' (is there such a word?) - hard to describe, but a little bit like being short sighted and putting on glasses that are slightly too strong for your vision. The Z2 looked as sharp, but a little easier on the eye.
So, my question is - do we really need QHD screens in 5"devices, or is this a step too far to be of any practical use? Is the extra drain on battery and processor worth the ever-so-infinitesimal increase in resolution (which arguably doesn't improve in appearance from full HD)?
