The G3 packs a QHD screen
The G3 packs a QHD screen

If you are rocking the new LG G3 then you may want to head over to YouTube if you haven't already. That's because some users are claiming that they can watch videos that take advantage of the G3's amazing screen, with all its resolution.

For most devices, including laptops, tablets, and smartphones, the maximum available res for a YouTube video is 1080p, or Full HD. However, a handset like the G3 has a much higher resolution that that thanks to its 25601440 Quad HD display. YouTube has responded to the QHD panel by upping its maximum resolution to 1440p, giving users of the LG G3 the best looking music videos, tutorial, and cats falling over on the market.

Of course, the G3 is not the only handset boasting a Quad HD panel, but it was the first, with the Samsung Galaxy LTE-A following shortly afterwards. As the Samsung's device is tied to South Korea (the European variant will lack QHD), we doubt this news will have the same mass appeal that it would for G3 users.
