LG G3, LG G Watch, and Samsung Gear Live Watch UNBOXING!


Yes!  I’ve been waiting for LG G3 for quite awhile now since last year even before LG announced it and finally it arrived!

Due to rather strange timing, my order for LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live Watch also arrived at the same time.

Rather than do 3 unboxing videos, I decided to do just one unboxing video.

LG G3 First impressions?

LG G3 design is just immaculate, I think it’s much better than HTC One or any other smartphone on the market today.  Touting thinnest bezels, LG G3 a rather large screen space sorta like the Nexus 5, which is also made by LG.

Upon holding LG G3 for the first time, it feels just as good as it looks.  I am definitely giving LG G3 a good test drive over the next few weeks and see how I like it over my daily drivers Note 3, HTC One, and Nexus 5.

It’s about the same size as Note 3 but “feels” a lot thinner/lighter.

In one sentence, I would say LG G3 is an enlarged version of Nexus 5 with super powers or Note 3 that’s been re-designed without the S-Pen.

I really love the LG G3 (even though I will have to test it out further this week).  I think they hit the sweetspot, it’s a smartphone somewhat in-between Nexus 5/HTC One and Note 3.

LG G3 has 1440P screen (that’s 2560×1440 pixels!), 4 times more pixels than 1080P phones like Note 3/HTC One/Nexus 5 along with latest Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor.  That’s probably the best specs on the smartphone market “right now”.

LG G Watch and Samsung Gear Live Watch

I was not going to buy anymore smartwatches as I don’t usually wear a watch but since Google has really consolidated the smartwatch OS with latest Android Wear, I figured I would have another go at it.

First, Gear Live watch from Samsung looks very promising as it has heart beat monitor on the watch but without the bulky camera like previous versions.  This is a good thing since the price of the watch goes down and the Gear Live now can be wore while you shower, bathe, and wash your hands.  You can easily clean the watch itself with soap so it doesn’t build up bacteria.

LG G Watch has nearly identical specs as the Gear Live but with lower resolution and no heart beat monitor.  BUT, I do like LG G Watch’s magnetic charging dock, it’s more well-thought out than Samsung Gear Watch.

Overall I am satisfied with my LG G3 purchase and both of my watches.

Why did I get two watches?

Well, these things run out of power eventually and with two watches, I will be able to easily swap watches without having downtime.  I’ve already started finding it more useful.  Gone are the days where Samsung is tweaking its own Android OS to make things work but Google themselves are leading the way to Smartwatch Android OS.

A lot of my apps on my smartphone easily sync to my new smart watches, which is great thing and much better than what I experienced with the original Samsung Gear watch.

I bought my watches not to tell the time but for the notifications and other features, but only after an hour of using, I am convinced again that this is the future of Android, one day we will not need to carry our smartphones.
