Design and Display

LG K3 (2017) parades a solid design, although its body appears to be made of plastic. It’s curvy and has a textured rear, ensuring comfortable grip. But this is no slim device, with thickness of roughly 9.5 millimetres.

The LG K3 (2017) sports a 4.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 480 x 854 pixels. While this is smaller to that of the K4 (2017), images should come out a tad sharper. The pixel density is roughly 218 ppi.

Camera and Storage

You will find a 5 megapixel camera on the back of the LG K3 (2017). This has LED flash, autofocus and voice activation features. It shoots HD (720p) videos at 30 frames per second. A 2 megapixel sensor for selfies looks rather measly. But features such as gesture shot should make selfie taking an exciting experience.
