The G3 S (also known as the G3 Beat in some countries), looks like the larger and well-regarded G3.Most reviewers agree that in terms of design, the G3 S is attractive phone that compares favourably to other handsets in this price range. However, most reviewers also agree that compared to the G3, too many cuts have been made. The screen resolution has seen a substantial drop and there's no ambient light sensor, so the screen brightness doesn't adapt with the environment. The camera is also notably inferior to its namesake. The specs are comparable to the likes of the HTC One Mini 2 and the Galaxy S5 Mini, and the performance is reasonable, but for the same price you can get better value for money either by getting the slightly order and larger G2, or something like the Honor 6.
What the critics say (scores are out of 100)
As well as the beautiful modern design, you get a 5 inch HD screen, a decent camera, and excellent battery life.
If you're after a premium user experience, the LG G3 S can undoubtedly deliver. It also packs a contemporary design and number of helpful and handy features; it just a shame that the end result isn't particularly memorable.
The LG G3 S offers something of a mixed bag and fails to impress like its flagship bigger brother. The LG G3 S doesn't feel like the most accomplished handset in its category. With HTC offering great build and Motorola great value, the LG might struggle to make its case.
While the LG G3 S impresses in a number of areas, such as the excellent battery life, simple software and solid daylight camera, it doesn't quite measure up against some stiff competition. It feels like LG has got its priorities wrong with the G3 S, focusing too much on headline grabbing features and not enough on basic internal specs.
The G3 Beat is definitely improvement, aesthetically as well as in terms of size and comfort, but this isn't worth the enormous price difference. If you can find it at a significant discount, you won't be disappointed.
The LG G3 S may come with the same name and physical design as its flagship brother, but the similarities are only skin deep. The G3 S's specs have been watered down in every way, making this little more than a low-end phone in a high-end body with a mid-range price.
Select 'Pay Monthly' if you're looking to get the LG G3 S as part of a monthly contract with minutes, data and texts. Alternatively, choose 'No Contract' if you prefer to buy the LG G3 S SIM Free or on Pay as You Go.
