How to Distinguish LG G3 Model Numbers

Released in June, 2014, LG G3 is the successor to LG G2. As a new flagship, undoubtedly LG G3 will achieve the success. “Simple is the New Smart”, this is the slogan on the official LG G3 page. After disassembling the LG G3, we found that the G3 did really have simple-designed internal structures. It means that LG G3 repair will not be so unreachable.
However, although it looks almost the same from outside and has simple designs from inside, different LG G3 versions still have slight differences. Thus, it's better to know your G3 model number so as to buy the right replacement parts for phone repair. If you have no idea about what your LG G3 model number is, here are several tips for you to identify.

Tip 1: See below charts to check model numbers that corresponding to the different carriers or regions.

      Hi, Where did you buy your LG G3? if you buy it from the official store or website, it can hardly be a fake one, and the simplest way to distinguish is to check the imei number,dail *#06# to find the imei number and check if it is the same with the Settings tab on your phone, and then you can go to the official website to paste the imei number to check if you can find the phone information.
