    Okay, so now that the phone is announced and everyone is waiting on actual availability date and pricing for their respective carriers, I figured there's no reason to stop us from posting up accessories that have been found, especially for those that are all in on purchasing the device.

    Amazon already has a ton of accessory offerings:

    Ebay has some as well.

    For those looking to upgrade their MicroSD, Amazon has a deal on the 64gb EVO microSD $35.24
    Amazon.com: Samsung Electronics 64GB EVO Micro SDXC with Adapter Upto 48MB/s Class 10 Memory Card (MB-MP64DA/AM): Computers & Accessories

    For those interested in Wireless charging, there are some great deals going on for Qi charging pads:

    Incipio Qi Wireless Charging pad $18 (Today only):

    The Ice Monkey portion of Daily Steals also has the LG Qi charging pad for $20

    LG Qi charger pad seems like a good deal for $20.

    Retail for that was $49.99, when it was first released, just for frame of reference.

    And, for those of you that are hoping to pick up the wireless charging stand that was shown with the G3, look up the LG WCD-800. That was the first charging stand that LG released, but was way overpriced (and is still overpriced on ebay). Retail was 119.99, if memory serves me correctly. You can pick one up for $89 on ebay, but still too expensive IMO, for what it is.

    I had posted a deal with the TYLT Vu, which IMO looks aesthetically better, and it serves the same purpose.

    And for those of you that had been holding off on having a "portable backup charger," this one might be the one to consider:


    I purchased one for $49.99, after getting my Note 3, which I felt was a bargain at that time, so the price on this one is even better. Same 10kmah capacity, but what's awesome is that I use this at my office. When I need to go to a long meeting, I just unplug this thing and bring it with me to charge my tablet up, if needed.

    Just got one of my cases in yesterday.
    Of course,nothing to report on fit,but,just wanted to pass along a BTW:

    If you order this one,from e-Bay:

    Black Full TPU Rubber Skin Cover Soft Gel Gummy Case for LG G3 | eBay

    It actually looks like this:

    Black TPU Protector Gel Case for Verizon LG Optimus G3 VS985 | eBay

    No biggie,as the 1st example is from an early rendering which obviously didn't pan out,but,I thought the color was a dark shade of black & turned out to be more of a charcoal/matte black.

    Again,no biggie.

    This one is on the way,ETA 6/12/14:

    Amazon.com: [Free HD Film-Better Grip] Ringke SLIM LG G3 Case [SF BLACK] Full Top and Bottom Coverage for an All Around Protection SUPER SLIM + SF COATED + PERFECT FIT Premium Hard Case Cover for LG G3 [ECO Package]: Cell Phones & Accessories

    that's what I've got as a temporary solution before I decide on Quick Circle or similar case:

    Amazon.com: HRWIRELESS(TM) For LG G3 Cover Case (TPU Clear): Cell Phones & Accessories

    Obviously I am not paying $100 for the Quick Circle, lol.

    even though description says g3, did you make sure they didn't send you case for isai fl?
  10. KOLIO

    KOLIO Guides Guide

    Yeah,I believe it's for the G3.
    I saw that ISAI & thought it sounded familiar,didn't bother to GOOGLE it until now. :p

    Forgot the ISAI was a Japan exclusive.Anyhoo,the cutouts match what the G3 has.

    Cool. Worried me a little cuz the pic they are using is the isai fl
  12. KOLIO

    KOLIO Guides Guide

    At 1st,I thought ISAI was a Japanese carrier & dismissed the pic as a render.
    Normally,I wouldn't have ordered it,but,it was one of the few that was actually available now & took my chances on it being the correct one.

    Now,if I could just be fortunate enough to win a Beta G3 from T-Mobile........... :D

    I ain't buyin' nuthin' until I see the whites of the G3's eyes. Then I might pull the trigger for purchase.

    Besides wanting a 3/32, my sticking point is the darn soft buttons. Nice display tainted by soft buttons and turns the 5.5" display effectively into a 5.1". I need to see how a G2 perform with emulators to see if the buttons are an issue. Ditto as far how many apps have an issue with the hide option. Simply put, 5.5" should be 5.5" rather than 5.1"

    Appreciated I am the picky minority with this view. Catch is the S5 is only 16GB and locked down with VZW, so no other options now as far as 'Goople' phones.

    Anyone run across a simple canvas holster that might hold a G3 in a Spigen AirCushion Sim Armor case?
    I've been using a Reiko vertical holster for my current RAZR MAXX with an Otterbox Commuter.

    WELCOME TO ANDROID FORUMS markfm! :party:

    I've got one of these:

    Cellet Products - Teramo

    Amazon.com: Cellet Black Teramo Premium Leather Case w/ Removable Clip for Samsung Note 2, Note 3: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Believe I got it from e-Bay.The one I have will fit perfectly for the G3.I have a TPU case for the G3 that fits snug,just right for ease of removal.

    You will want to contact CELLET for one that'll fit,as I'm not able to find it again/available on e-Bay or AMAZON.


    This should work:

    Amazon.com: LG Optimus G Pro Genuine Black Leather Case Pouch With Magnetic Closure And Removable Spring Clip Vertical Teramo Style: Everything Else

    CellShopper - Cell Phone Accessories

    As the description notes,there's elastic fabric on the sides that allow for devices that may be a bit snug,but,it should work,based on the dimensions given vs the G3 dimensions.

    I need a hand strip along with some way to put it on G3 for video.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    They definitely look different:

    Official LG WCD-100 Qi Wireless Charger :: MobileFun.com

    However,one nice apparent feature of the new model is that it has a USB socket vs a proprietary power cord.
    Looks like the new model is lacking any annoying/glowing indicator lights as well.

    I'm guessing the MSRP (outside of MobileFun) will be in the $60-$75 range,based on MobileFun's usual over-inflated pricing.

    The WCD-800 charged at 1000mAh. My Samsung wireless charger does 850mAh. With the compact size of the WCD-100 I wonder what rate it charges at. Can't find the specs. I kind of like the lights on the WCD-800 telling me what is happening.
  25. KOLIO

    The lights on the WCD-800 no doubt are a bit easier on the insomniac than this model:

    Amazon.com: Jumbl Qi Wireless Charging Pad Kit and Phone Stand - Portable and Foldable Wireless Charger that Also Serve as a Phone Stand - Includes Qi-Enabled Transmitter and Samsung Galaxy S4 i9500 Receiving Tag: Cell Phones & Accessories

    This one is equivalent to a neon-lit beer sign flashing while in-use.
    While it's functional in the horizontal,I had less-than-stellar results w/it staying in the inclined position,especially w/phones approaching the G3 size.Throw a case on it & forget about it staying in place,unless in the horizontal position.

    Even then,I'd recommend a pass on this one,the "sweet spot" for charging is small,definitely a bummer for a larger phone.
