On the software side , The LG G3 runs on Android 4.4 Kitkat . The new LG ui joins the flat icon trend with its own interface which is said to be more personal towards it user . The phone basically learns from you, so as you guessed , it is a Voice assistant for LG. The ui features the usual LG features like Knock and other effects which we will look at after the specs are properly detailed out , so with features like this and some high end specs ,the battery is
the second biggest thing many users worry about , well worry not , The LG G3 has a 3000mAh battery ,which is removable (big yay!) , The phone like most of its high end rivals features 4G out of
