    Thumbs up We've got the LG G3, you've got questions...

    You know the drill.... check out our hands-on post: LG G3 hands-on | Android Central

    And shoot me your questions here. We've got the phone in-hand, and we'll do our best to give you the answers you crave.

    Bear in mind we're using a preproduction Korean G3, so things can and will change as the global release approaches.

    The two questions everyone probably wants to know (and I know you wont be able to answer right away but with time) is:
    how is battery life
    picture quality (is the laser implementation a gimmick or does it really seem useful?)

    why was dust/water resistance left off? The Japanese version (LG Isai FL) has it, so why not for the G3?

    I'd like to know how great the screen actually is. Is it all the hype and then some or just mediocre? Also what is the situation with the quick view case? Does the circle view cover have a replacement battery cover as well or what? And anything as far as a hint about a release a release date for US other than "soon"?

    it's confirmed. GSMarena had some explanation that said LG didn't want people overdoing it with the water stuff and the phone, so they left it off entirely. Seems like a lame excuse to not to try and do the waterproofing/dustproofing. At least they should have done it for peace of mind. Thats the only minus point for me with the phone.

    Alex is that Kill Switch antitheft security features something that can be un-done if you recover your phone so that it will work again? I guess the data would be safe with my backup if I did the remote wipe that could be restored?

    Also, will the Kill Switch prevents a locked phone from being made operable again, even through a factory reset or a new OS install by thieves.

    We won't hear anything useful on battery life until EU/US models get out there. So bear that in mind when people review these Korean models LG specifically told us the Korean units aren't optimized for non-Korean networks, and that this will affect battery life. That said, they also talked about a bunch of stuff they're doing to minimize the battery cost of that QHD display. And they have a good track record in this area with the G2.

    Design reasons, from what we were told today. They want to have a sleeker design, and not to have to worry about plastic flaps around various ports.

    About the same, which is to say pretty damn small.

    Yeah, it's not waterproof. The designers said it's not going to break the second you use it in the rain (like most phones, in fact), but it's not carrying an IP rating of any kind.

    It's great. But then so are most screens these days. And as good as the G3 screen is, I'm certainly not turning my nose up at the M8, S5 or any of the other great 1080p panels we have on current devices.

    Great question and also perhaps to early but battery life info would be great.

    Also Pricing but you won't have that info yet.

    Will the 32gb variant be an option available internationally? Or will us in the UK have to make do with 16gb & 2gb of Ram?

    The Isai FL in Japan is pretty much the same as the G3; same bezels and all..and its water/dust resistant, and doesn't have a flap on the USB port. I don't buy LG's "for design reasons" explanation .

    How is game play and movie watching on it?

    Any Lag or stutter at all like many theorists on here were worried about?

    Again, usual caveats about this thing being a preproduction device, but it seems really good so far, particularly in darker conditions. Here's a sample from the event.

    Did they hit a homerun with the "laser" focus and OIS+?

    Is the G3 screen noticeably better than the G2 screen?

    Yes they showed the wireless charger that is extra $ in the main LG presentation. It also has a removable battery when you pop the back off.

    I think the camera is definitely one of this phone's major strengths. Need more time with it though.

    I don't have the G2 here, but it's noticeably *very good* in terms of brightness, viewing angles and everything else.

    On some SKUs. Will vary depending on market. The Korean model I have (olleh/KT) has the contacts but not the charging back.

    Ask me again in 24 hours. It certainly seems loud enough, though. And it's got a 1W speaker, so it should be. Will it best BoomSound? We'll have to wait and see.

    Oh I hope Verizon doesn't get the exclusivity on wireless charging like the g2.
