If you like everything about the LG G3 except its high price tag, feast your eyes on the LG G3 Vigor. Lighter and cheaper than its big brother, the G3, the phone has the same styling and some of the same features of the high-end phone at a lower cost.
The Vigor is the latest in LG's G3 line, which includes the flagship G3 and the G3 S . Side by side, the Vigor and G3 S look identical, and indeed the two phones have nearly the same specs.
Smaller and lighter than the LG G3, the Vigor nicely combines a compact body with an expansive screen. The size is pleasing, big enough to feel substantial, yet small enough to carry around in most pockets or bags.
The phone has a glass front, a slim metal band around the edges and a polycarbonate battery door. It's curved on the back. Behind the back cover, you'll find the battery, Micro-SIM and microSD card slots, which are stacked on top of each other, away from the battery. That means you can swap out the microSD card without turning off the phone.
The Vigor features a 5-inch 1280x720 pixel IPS display. It's sharp and bright, with bright, yet natural colors. It's great for playing games, reading text and looking at HD photos. It's easily readable in bright sunlight and the ambient light sensor works quickly to pump up the brightness when you're in the sun, so you can still see the screen.
