For Optical Image Stabilization
LG's G3 has also preemptively stolen Apple's thunder, in terms of optical image stabilization. The iPhone 6 Plus is the first iteration of the smartphone to include the technology, which physically shifts the imaging sensor to counteract camera shake. Again, this is great news. But it's old news for LG, which has incorporated the technology in the G3. And while the iPhone 6 Plus is in many ways a premium version of the iPhone 6 — it starts at $299 with a two-year contract, whereas the iPhone 6 starts at $199 — the G3 is at the more standard price point of $199 with contract. Optical image stabilization, in other words, can be had at a less luxurious cost.
