    Re: News - LG announces G3 Stylus phablet with an "exceptional price"

    I got a G3 on pre-order and while it's a fine device, I don't think I'd rush out to buy the Stylus variant. The drop in hardware spec is one cause, but also I kind of like the way that Samsung implemented the S-Pen (got one of those on my Note 10.1).

    So much for the "Stylus" being the 805-powered G3.

    PS given that the Stylus - which is called a "phablet" - has the same screen size as the normal G3, does this mean that my G3 is really just a stylus-less phablet rather than a large-screen phone? Not sure at what point a device gets the "phablet" moniker.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    Re: News - LG announces G3 Stylus phablet with an "exceptional price"

    Why hobble the device with a screen so low res for it's size? That's lower PPI than the Galaxy S2! While perfectly usable I'm sure we expect much more from a phone in 2014, 300 dpi mimimum really, which makes this rather disappointing and in no way a contender against the Note 3 / 4

    I have the Note 3 but not looking forward to the Note 4... especially if they keep the screen size the same.

    If the Nexus 6 has a 5.9" screen, it will be a good competitor to the Note 4
