There's been a lot of reviews of the LG G3 and as anyone that's followed them knows the overall verdict has been overwhelmingly positive for LG's 2014 flagship.  From it's ultra high resolution QHD 2560 x 1440 display to the snappy Snapdragon 801 processor running at 2.5GHz to the super thin bezels and new metallic-look plastic back, the LG G3 has garnered awards and praise throughout the industry.  The one thing that struck us though was that the vast majority, if not all of the early reviews were in fact done on the Korean model and not the U.S. release version.  While we were assured they were identical spec wise except for the inclusion of the tv antennae on the Korean model that would be missing in the U.S. version, we still wanted to see a U.S. spec LG G3 reviewed.

Thankfully, Danny Winget heard our prayers and above you'll see his full in-depth review of the U.S. Sprint version of the LG G3 in the striking gold metallic color.  Now, as expected Danny raves about the overall performance and design of the G3 with only a few reservations regarding the camera and some UI choices.  One interesting observation is that it appears that the display on the U.S. Sprint version might have been tweaked a bit from the Korean Version.  In many of the early reviews of the Korean model the QHD 2560 x 1440 display was praised for being super sharp but also noted was a distinct dimness and overly warm color profile.  The Sprint version seems to have corrected these issues with no issues of brightness or color temperature.  In fact when compared head to head Danny specifically notes that the Sprint version looks better than the Korean version.  No word on whether it's a different panel in the U.S. G3 versus the Korean G3 or if some work was done by the company to improve the brightness and color temp before release here. 

Some other minor differences between the U.S. and Korean models include the lack of wireless charging built-in in the Sprint version and also differences in the NFC/MicroSD card layout once the back cover is off.  That's it though...everything else appears identical between the two versions.  Overall though Danny really gives high praise to the LG G3 with props given to the 4k video, daylight photos, overall performance, design and of course that screen.
