    Our little game of catch-up-on-this-summer's-new-phones continues at IFA in Berlin today, and following run-ins with models like the Samsung Galaxy Alpha, we continue to look for devices launched in the weeks and months leading up to the trade show, which we just haven't had the chance to check out in person yet. LG'S G3 remains the company's flagship Android, but in the time since it debuted, we've seen it joined by a few new family members. Back in July, LG gave us the G3 Beat/S as a "mini" version of the G3 itself, and today we had the opportunity to directly compare the G3 S against ...

    In case you didn't catch the announcement from South Korea earlier today, Samsung's newest metal monster isn't so much of a spec monster... but that doesn't mean it can't take on its competitors with stride. You already saw how it fared against the HTC One mini 2, so how about putting it up against the LG G3 Beat next? This is Samsung Galaxy Alpha vs LG G3 Beat. Once you look down at the comparison chart below, you'll realize that this one's no competition. The Galaxy Alpha blows the G3 Beat out of the water in everything from its looks to its internals. First of all, the screen is a good ...

    When it comes to small phones, Sony's Xperia Z1 Compact has reined supreme for most of 2014, with no real competitors in sight. Now that there's a new kid on the block, we decided to quickly compare the two through specs -- so here is LG G3 Beat vs Sony Xperia Z1 Compact. This one's pretty much a no-contest. It's pretty ridiculous how the Z1 Compact is able to massacre the G3 Beat in almost every spec, and it's mainly because one's a flagship-class phone while the other is clearly a midranger. In both our comparison with the Galaxy S5 mini and One mini 2, one thing remained consistent -- ...

    Continuing on with our post-announcement spec comparisons between the G3 Beat and other similar phones (the last one being between it and the Galaxy S5 mini), we've put together LG G3 Beat vs HTC One mini 2. It's a similar story to the last comparison -- the G3 Beat just isn't a compelling hardware package when pitted against its closest competitors, but we stress that hardware doesn't necessarily equal stellar performance. The two phones are equal in most categories, with the One mini 2 winning out with its screen, storage capacity, front and rear-facing camera, and WiFi bands. It also ...

    Now that the LG G3 Beat has been announced, it's time to start talking comparisons between it and 2014's other mini phones, including Samsung's own Galaxy S5 mini. As we don't yet have review units of either, spec comparisons will have to suffice for now, so let's do it -- this is LG G3 Beat vs Samsung Galaxy S5 mini. On paper, there's one clear winner between the S5 mini and the G3 Beat -- the Samsung takes the cake in almost every department, but remember that specs are almost never an exactly accurate gauge of performance. Things such as OEM skins and component quslity will determine ...

    LG has just announced its G3 Beat, but is this a Sony Xperia Z1 Compact-level phone, or just another midrange small-screener? Let's take a look through our full list of LG G3 Beat specs, compiled for you down below. The need-to-know specifications for this phone include the display and SoC, which are (respectively) a 5-inch 1280x720 panel and a quad-core 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 unit. There's also a decent 8MP camera, but the storage and memory allotments leave us with the word "midrange" in our mouths -- 8GB of ROM and 1GB of RAM are included. For a complete list of LG G3 specs, ...

    We've seen it in a variety of leaks so far, but it's now finally official -- say hello to LG G3 Beat, a smaller version of LG's G3 flagship phone. Let's take a look at what it packs, shall we? It offers the same "Floating Arc" metallic design as its bigger brother, and has a 5-inch display trapped in a chassis with minimal bezel. It overall looks like a scaled-down G3, just as you'd expect. Since we've covered specs extensively in a follow-up post, let's go over the basics for now. As mentioned earlier, there's a 5-inch display, but this phone is unfortunately quite the midranger. That ...

    We've already seen a positive flurry of LG G3 S/Beat/Mini news today, and the momentum is not about to slow down now. Following that G3 S user manual and new G3 Beat pics, we've got some fresh G3 S finds that really seem to help flesh-out the phone's picture, as a Russian retailer posts not just some very legit-looking G3 S press renders, but also details the phone's specs. The five-inch 720p display looks confirmed, as does a quad-core 1.2GHz SoC. Not all specs align with what we've heard about the G3 Beat, however, and this listing says the G3 S will arrive with just 1GB of RAM instead ...

    Feeling a little confused about the rumored LG G3 Mini? We don't blame you, as there's been a lot of talk of different specs, not to mention different names, surrounding the hardware. Late last month we saw an LG G3 Beat for China, a five-inch device that might have been pushing the limits of how large a “Mini” phone could be (but maybe that's exactly why LG gave it a different name). Then just overnight we shared with you the user manual for a device dubbed the G3 S, and while the docs didn't reveal a lot of technical detail, the idea that this could be the Western version of the G3 ...

    It seems the new cool thing for OEMs to do is release a "mini" version of their flagship phones a couple months after the initial release. LG doesn't look to be bucking the trend, as a German LG G3 S user manual has leaked, allegedly showing off a "mini" G3. This supposed G3 S has model number D722V, meaning this is a Vodafone phone. It runs a custom build of Android 4.4.x KitKat, meaning LG has sprinkled its own software goodies atop AOSP -- it looks like some features, like the ability to take selfies with gestures, have been carried over. Apart from all that, nothing else has come about ...
