Top 5 Phones to Consider Before Buying the LG G3 [August, 2014]

The flagship LG G3 is arguably the best Android smartphone on the market and a device that you absolutely should take a look at before settling on a new smartphone. That said, we think there are five phones that you absolutely must weigh before committing to the LG G3 in the month of August.

In July, LG finally released the LG G3, a successor for last year’s LG G2. The LG G3 had some big shoes to fill given that the LG G2 was one of last year’s best smartphones. Fortunately, LG exceeded expectations and delivered a fantastic device that is among our favorite smartphones and is arguably the best smartphone that LG has ever made.

The LG G3 comes with an impressive array of specifications including a beautiful QHD display, speedy processor, fantastic camera, and a solid design. Simply put it’s one of the best smartphones that money can buy and a smartphone that you be looking at if you’re in the hunt this month. That said, there are some devices that you need to weigh against the LG G3 before buying.

We are constantly bombarded with questions about which phones to buy. In particular, we’re constantly asked about the phones consumers should weigh against the LG G3. There are a number of different devices that we could recommend, the smartphone market is full of solid choices, but we want to narrow things down a bit and take a look at what we consider to be the top five.

These devices represent the devices that we’d recommend to friends and family. And while our list may differ from yours, these are the devices that Gotta Be Mobile editors have selected for recognition this month. We feel like the devices listed here deliver the best, all-around package for this month and this month alone.

That said, here are the top five smartphones to consider before buying the LG G3.

The iPhone 6 might be on the way but we think you need to rule out the iPhone 5s, Apple's flagship smartphone, before buying the LG G3. The iPhone 5s, like the LG G3, is one of the best smartphones on the market.

The iPhone 5s comes with a fantastic design, camera, processor, display, and solid software. If anything, check it out for iOS. Many people prefer iOS to Android and if you're coming from another operating system, say Windows Phone or a BlackBerry, it's worth investigating before buying into Android and the LG G3.

You may not walk out of the store with the iPhone 5s but we think that's certainly worthy of consideration, even now in the month of August.
