LG says its new smartphones will include more of the features people want and fewer of the ones people don't bother to use because they're too complicated.

The new G3 phone has a much sharper camera than others on the market today. That's because it's a 13-megapixel camera, featuring a fast auto-focus feature and one-touch controls. It also has a keyboard whose size can be customized for the user, making typing easier for those who "fat-finger" their way through writing a text or email on most phones. It has a 5.5 screen, measured diagonally and a high-resolution display.

The phone will be available in a week in some markets but won't be available in the U.S. until the summer. No word on pricing for the new device.
