It will not, as the LG G3 requires a connection termed Slimport.

Question

S3 AND S4 Won't Play on my Samsung 55" HDMI TV

The package says it is compatible with S3 and S4, and I am using the 11 pin Samsung adapter but no signal will show on the TV from either my S3 or my S4 and the USB power adapter is also plugged in.
In one of your answers you mention screen mirroring but that is for a wireless connection to newer Samsung TVs or to the Allcast dongle so it doesn't apply and S3 doesn't have mirroring anyway.
How do I get this to work?

You may need to go into your phone display settings and enable Video out, or Screen Mirroring.

Question

Static screen

If the connections actually work and let me mirror my phone to the TV, then majority of the time there is static screen either all over the screen or half the screen. I've had this cable for approximately 5 months and it's only worked one time out of numerous tries. How can this be fixed? Also, I did the HDMI reset

You may want to take this to the Geek Squad desk with your receipt, and they can connect it in store. If there is a bad connection, they should be able to swap it out under manufacturer warranty.

Per the Android Forums, "The RAZR has a dedicated HDMI port and does not use MHL. You need a micro HDMI to HDMI cable."

Typically, when it doesn't work out is because the user is connecting the HDMI & the phone to the adapter but not connecting the adapter to the charging adapter as well. It has to be plugged into the wall to work.

Once you connect the equipment, and connect the phone charger to the adapter, see if you can select the HDMI port on the tv input list. Once that is done in the samsung menu you will want to activate the Samsung MHL service, which may be under the name Anynet, or Screen Mirroring.

When you change the tv to the correct input, you then want to start a video on the phone, like youtube or netflix, and see if the phone needs particular types of media to send out over MHL.
