LG wants to tempt you into a G3 in time for Christmas with festive bonuses

G3 - Colour Range
The LG G3 is still sitting at the top of the pile for one the best smartphones this year. It’s a great handset with some truly class leading hardware and LG has done a pretty great job with the software, now LG has teamed up with retailers around Australia to tempt you into buying a handset in time for Christmas.

The G3 is of course now available in additional colours – Burgundy Red or Moon Violet – as well as the Titan Black, Silk White and Shine Gold colours originally launched. The bonuses seem to mainly focus on free accessories, but why not grab a bargain if they’re on offer.

Telstra, JB HiFi and FoneZone: Purchase a Black or Gold LG G3 from your Telstra dealers and receive a bonus accessory pack valued at $69 which includes a spare battery and portable charger
Optus: Take home a bonus wireless charger valued at $59 when you buy your G3 from Optus (This is also available to Virgin Mobile customers)

Harvey Norman: Receive a bonus accessory pack of a white portable charger and spare battery valued at $69 when you buy either of the two new exclusive G3 colours – Burgundy Red or Moon Violet.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.


  1. No wonder the staff at HN could not find info on the desktop battery charging stand, and the battery for the LG G3, when I was at HN Mt Gravatt, Brisbane, back on Tuesday.
    LG Australia do not list the desktop battery charging stand (BC4300), or the battery itself (BL-53YH) on their site at all.
    The Australian etailer, DStore, has both available for separate purchase.
    $67 for the BC4300 desktop battery charging stand in black
    $71 for the BC4300 desktop battery charging stand in white
    $45 for the BL-53YH battery

    The LG Australia site does list the wireless desktop charging stand (WCD-100); which was up for grabs with the G3 from Optus, and the flip case (CCF-345G); which was up for grabs from Vodafail.
    $69 for the WCD-100 wireless desktop charging stand
    $49 for the CCF-345G LG Quick Circle flip case

  2. Just been to Harvey Norman at Mt Garavatt, Brisbane.
    HN has no record of the bonus stuff on their system.
    Their system doesn’t even have the items stand alone.

    Where did Ausdroid get the HN info from, because that source is wrong.

  3. Poor battery, no L850 for Vodafone, only 2GB of RAM, and it’s stuck on Android 4.4.2. The Sony Z2 or Z3 are better choices.

  4. Love this phone but the battery is awful
