It's been nearly two years since the introduction of the Nexus 4 and LG has slowly started to churn out devices that can hold its own against its competitors, including the G2, Nexus 5 and more recently the G3. The latter has the makings of a flagship, with features like a Quad HD display and laser auto focus. Utilizing this momentum, it was only natural that LG would try and leverage the G3 and create spin-off devices.
LG has done just this and released the LG G3 Vigor. The device shares the same design as its flagship sibling, with a large 5" LCD display dominating the front, a 1.3MP front-facing camera up top and a silver speaker grill for the earpiece. Like many of LG's more recent handsets, the volume rocker and power button can be found on the backside, leaving the sides devoid of any physical buttons. Also on the back is a laser sensor, 8MP camera with LED flash, and a speaker grill located toward the bottom.
