LG G3 (Verizon)
Teens seeking a larger format phone can now look to the LG G3. At 5.5 inches, the LG3 is classified as a phablet, or a hybrid mobile phone/tablet device so if your teen wants a larger format device, the LG3 is an excellent compromise for less than the price of a tablet. The high resolution quad HD display delivers 536 pixels per square inch and the large screen is protected by Gorilla Glass. The rear camera features a 13 megapixel optically stabilized sensor with laser autofocus so the camera mechanism remains steady and snaps in-focus photos faster.
The device comes with 32GB of internal data storage but it can also use microSD cards for future expansion. The battery should deliver over 7 hours of real usage (including LTE browsing or browsing on WIFI via 802.11a/b/g/n/ac), but the back is also removable so you can swap out batteries.
Overall it’s a large phone, but for teens looking for more screen real estate, the LG G3 is the obvious choice.
