LG D850 overview

  • 1Description

The metallic black LG G3 D850 32GB Smartphone improves on its predecessor, the LG G2, with a bigger 5.5" in-plane switching (IPS) display and a larger Quad HD 2560 x 1440 native resolution. The IPS panel allows for wider viewing angles while the native resolution allows the LG G3 to play back 1080p Full HD content. The display is also a capacitive touchscreen with full support for the multi-touch gestures incorporated into the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. The screen is also made with Corning Gorilla Glass 3 for high scratch resistance and screen durability.

The LG G3 is powered by a quad-core 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with 3GB of RAM. The micro-USB port allows you to charge as well as transfer data quickly from your computer to the LG G3 and vice versa. The micro-USB port also supports SlimPort. SlimPort uses a single cable to deliver high-definition video and audio from your LG G3 to a wide range of external displays, including projectors, PC monitors, and HDTVs. In order to take advantage of SlimPort, you'll have purchase a SlimPort adapter (sold separately).

Bluetooth 4.0 is onboard for pairing with other Bluetooth-enabled devices. 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi is also integrated for high-speed Internet connectivity. Built-in NFC allows you to instantly connect to other NFC-enabled devices for content sharing, simply by tapping the two devices together. A-GPS with GLONASS is also available for using Google Location and Maps services. Additionally, the LG G3 has a removable 3,000mAh battery. Under the battery door, the LG G3 offers a microSDXC interface for added storage capacity.

The LG G3 comes with the Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system. KitKat provides improved features to Android. When using Google Now you can simply say "OK Google" to your smartphone and you'll be able to do voice search, send a text message, get directions, or even start playing music. Speaking of voices, the phone app has gotten a revamped look. Instead of the tired alphabetical sorting, KitKat will evaluate which contacts you speak with most often and automatically prioritize your contacts list accordingly. Also, the phone app is integrated with Google Maps so you'll be able to look up nearby restaurants and hotels directly from the app. On a related note, Caller ID also gets some Google Maps integration as well. If you receive a call from a phone number that is not in your contacts, Google Maps will search and display any matches from local businesses. It's clear that Google's goal with Android 4.4.2 KitKat is reduced Android fragmentation and a personal, customized experience.

    LG D850 reviews

    G3 D850 32GB AT&T Branded Smartphone (Unlocked, Metallic Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good Phone - Bad Software I purchased this to replace my broken LG-G3 International version (D855) phone. I use an AT&T reseller for service and the D855 did not work with LTE 4G. With the AT&T version, of course it works with LTE 4G, but at a cost. Qi wireless has been removed... not just the antenna but the internal hardware required for it. It is lousey with AT&T software that cannot be removed, and some can't be disabled - it simply gets in the way of my day-to-day use of the phone. Oddly, this version of the LG-G3 gets very poor reception. With my D855 version, I easily had 4-5 signal bars. The same is true of my cheap back-up phone. This D850 phone gives me 1-3 signal bars using the same SIM and in the same location. I have no idea why this would be true. If you are purchasing this phone for use with AT&T and you like AT&T's hardware and software modifications, you may very well like it. You can't beat the specs at this price point. BUT, if you want to use it with a service reseller, you'll need to look elsewhere. Thankfully, B & H has good customer service and I have been able to RMA this item, so no harm - no foul.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Value in Superceded Flagship Smartphones I chose the LG G3 because it had the specs I wanted: camera stabilization and a SD slot. It's also cheaper than the Galaxy S5. In hand, the device does not feel large although the screen is enormous. I found the color and resolution of the screen impressive though the automatic brightness was overly aggressive, resulting in somewhat dim viewing even indoors. The plastic shell is functional: it doesn't slip and the rear buttons aren't difficult to use but the look and feel doesn't give me the fizz (apologies to Mr. James May). The camera is exceptional. The first picture taken was a quick snap of backyard wisteria in macro and the quality was stunning: quite the equal of a travel shooter. The camera's optical stabilization canceled out shaky hands just as well as I'd hoped. The software environment is less pleasant. The D850 G3 is riddled with AT&T's cancerous apps, some of which can't be hidden or even avoided, such as the AT&T Address Book app. This app has more permissions to root through your personal life than a drill sergeant. Migrating data to the G3 wasn't fun either as I had to use several third-party apps to move apps and data, SMS and MMS, and the call log. By comparison, Motorola makes a very fine app for migrating data to one of their devices that makes the process a breeze. That said, there isn't a better device at or below this price point. The Galaxy S5 is the closest and would win out at the same price but it costs substantially more.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can only update from KitKat to Marshmallow on AT&T! Phone works on my carrier (Virgin Canada) but the update isn't available unless i have an active AT&T sim. Virgin Canada had a marshmallow update available for LG G3, but its not being picked up (I think since its a different model) Had to root and install ROM manually, not a big deal but didn't think i had to go through the hassle since the phone is unlocked. Other than that once upgraded the phone is excellent.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Smart Phone - Top of the line quality The LG G3 AT&T GSM was rated with some of the best cell phones in mid 2014 (only 2 yrs ago) This phone does just about everything a modern phone should. The phone works on the AT&T 3G, 4G, and 4G LTE bands or channels. Should work in most of the country. Should be current for years. This phone now sells in the $200.00 range? Unreal !!!! Also has one of the best cameras 13 MP and Video 4K unreal !!!! Would I Buy Again? Already Did !! OBTW came halfway across the country in 2 days! mine came free shipping (this can change so check current policy) Thanks B&H

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, but be aware of Software version Phone was new in box & unlocked. Was able to just put in my SIM card and worked instantly, however, the phone will not update to latest Android 6.0 update, as my previous LG G3 did. It is stuck with KitKat 4.4.2, which is a bummer, since I was used to the different theme/layout after the update of my previous one. The usual route of About Phone>Software Update>Check for Updates did not work, nor did using LG PC Suite by hooking up to my PC. All says my software is latest version. After all my research, I guess you could only get the update as the carrier pushed it out.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dead In A Year Worked fine for about a year. Slowly went bad. First it stopped recognizing my sim card, then it started having digital seizures (think phone turns off and turns back on in rapid succession). Next came the black out screen. I wouldn't (and will not) buy this phone again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Phone This is one of the best smartphones ever made, camera takes excellent pics, it's fast loading web sites, comfortable to hold, great quality build. You can't go wrong at this price, it's a steal.
