recently bought an lg g3 and these are my observations:
if you are more interested in battery life go for the xperia z2.
if you are interested in features and screen( bright and size) go for the lg g3.
overall i am happy with the phone just wish the battery could last longer. it is not bad but for a 3000 battery the htc m8 and s5 will be better.
my observed cons
the screen drains 80% of the battery. you will have to keep the brightness low.
the camera is very basic no manual modes just point and shoot.
occasional heating of the phone for unknown reasons and also lags
my observed pros
the screen is just spectacular
the features are just years ahead of the competition( android). they should be standard.
the size is just right, i think the smallest 5.5 inch in the business.
OVERALL I AM SATISFIED I CAN ONLY SWITCH TO A NEWER LG OR THE SONY XPERIA Z3( BUT I WILL MISS THE LG EASE OF USE FEATURES)
so the choice is between the lg g3 or the xperia z2. the deciding factor is simply battery life and the extra cost( xperia z2 is more expensive), if you value battery life and can pay more go for the z2 but if you value features and overall good phone with big screen lg g3 is your choice. HOPE IT HELPED.
i have HTC one m8. no lag, good battery life.
I want to ask question should i move to LG G3?
becuase i like 5.5 inch screen and small bezel?
please reply quickly..
Please I want to know how can connect my mobile in 3G? (LG G3 D-850 AT&T).
I am from Albania.
copy23, 23 Sep 2015LOL! you dont know what you say, why the device uses 5% hour of battery in standby (deep sleep... morewell if u are not a power user then this set up is for u and yes it is an amazing time if u consider that g3 battery is not that good...but in my opinion lg g2 has been the best lg has offered to us...still the best device i know that camera has been improved and screen too but.... lg g2 screen wont dissapoint any one it is incredibly sharp and accurate colors 50 % brightness is enough for any task... the performance some tines gets betetr on g2 because sd800 and 801 are almost the same diffrence is overclocked sd800 in order to run 2k display....same gpu and same krait 400 cores im able to squeez 6 hours on screen with no problems from 100 to 2 percent 50% brightness playing videos on youtube...taking pictures and surfing web ...wich is basicly most people daily task.
Mr Cool , 24 Sep 2015I want to ask what is more efficient in performance and battery samsung s5 or Lg G3 im plannin... moreim an lg user but between then i have to say s5....lg g3 has better specs but due to its 2k screen battery and performace are not that good compared to lg g2 wich iss till a beast runs everything u put on it and gives to u excellent battery life
Mr Cool , 24 Sep 2015I want to ask what is more efficient in performance and battery samsung s5 or Lg G3 im plannin... moreAny time it's gonna be LG G3, S5 is nowhere near to G3 in terms of performance or features, so I would strongly recommend you to go with LG G3
Mr Cool , 24 Sep 2015I want to ask what is more efficient in performance and battery samsung s5 or Lg G3 im plannin... moreLG G3 has amazing standby time and talktime and if you disable a lot of features in the settings, it has an overall decent battery life. It also is arguably, the most fun and convenient phone out there (super thin bezels, double tap, etc)....but i have to admit that if it's overall battery life you are looking for, the S5 is a little bit better.
I would recommend the G4 probably if you are ok with spending a little bit more, because it's very similar to the G3 but has improved battery life (not so much in talktime, but overall)....it also has one of the if not the best camera in any smartphone...
But ultimately, both the G3 and S5 are great phones...i doubt you would be disappointed with either of them :)
I want to ask what is more efficient in performance and battery samsung s5 or Lg G3 im planning to buy a phone please help
serj2794, 21 Sep 2015Hey, I have the same model as you, I want to know how can I get the lollipop update on my phone. Go to update.its free.just calm down and wait for the notification.
Anonymous, 23 Sep 2015This is a great phone overall its solid. The battery life is good can last a full day but the ... moreLOL! you dont know what you say, why the device uses 5% hour of battery in standby (deep sleep) and you say it's because the screen?! LOL...what a mess!
If the device is on deep seep the screen dont "burn" the battery out!
My G3 last almost 3 days of battery...sure, asking me how...and i tell you: root, chupachups kernel and then 300-1574Mhz, lagfree governor and msm-adreno gpu governor with 330mhz and not the 578 by default, and undervolting the CPU with -50 in each frequency!
and this phone rules like a charm! If you want a device like this you have to know what you doing, if not, i want to tell you something: buy one Nokia 3310 and be happy! xD
This is a great phone overall its solid. The battery life is good can last a full day but the stanby time is rubbish. the phone uses like 5% every hour when idle and thats probably because of the screen. Lets hope the future updates can reduce this issue. But i can assure you this phone will blast through any game performance is top notch.
I use this phone from 2 months i have full root and installed CloudyG3 2.5 everything is working perfectly except for that sometimes it slows down cuz of overheating and thats the only problem that i have for now
Released one year ago but still better than most of the new releases and much cheaper than though. I've been using for a year and advise you to buy LG G3, it works fine guys, don't waste your money.
Even i was facing restart issue, i visited LG Center and found that my battery was faulty. There is not an OS issues, Battery gets drain due to overcharging.
I am using this LG G3 32 internal from last 8 months and its an awesome device only i need to change the camera as there is major scratches on the outer glass.
Hello All, I got Lg G3 16 gb version 9 months ago... past 7 months it worked absolutely fine but from last 2 months it began restarting randomly.....The problem started with kitkat so i updated to lollipop but the problem still persists... e.g. when i dial a contact, sometimes playing games, sometimes while browsing, etc... can anyone suggest me any solution to it?? just frustrated with this issue... thnx..
aske14, 21 Sep 2015It is possible that my G3 start randomly restart because of firmwere update? I have phone for ... moreAre u sayin that your G3 is restarting randomly as your working on it?? Mine does the same... Tried all the possibilites but all in vain... now last thing im suspecting is that it has a faulty battery.... Anyone has another solution then kindly let us know...
