I bought this phone in December 2015. It was working fine until May 2017 when one day I was using WhatsApp and a blue screen appeared and it completely died. Did everything I could, but I was unsuccessful. It never turned on again. I had issues with the battery. Sometimes it would take forever to charge. There were heating issues as well. But the screen was impressive as hell. It was very clear, smooth and beautiful to look at. I sometimes miss this phone. The dead one is still with me hoping it would come back to life again!
I have been using this phone for about three years, and I have to say that the display is very crisp and it's one of the best out there. The only downsides are that the phone needs pretty frequent battery replacements if you are a heavy phone user. You'll need to replace the battery when it starts to turn off by itself. If multiple apps are used, the phone tends to overheat.

another issue was the short daily battery life in 2015, but they fixed it after some months with updates. But after that, fast recharge with other smartphones' charger wasn't allowed anymore.
The screen is so fuckin crazy. I've smashed it in every possible condition, on stones, iron, wood, asphalt, but Gorilla Glass 3. is stronger. No scratches guys.
I've been using a G3 for years and it's a great phone. I flashed Bliss on it the day I got it and it's never given me a single problem. The battery life is incredible and it can sit idle for about a week without needing a charge. With regular daily use (phone, SMS, email and music), I only need to charge it every other day.
I have it since 3 years ago. The battery is really trash. I changed the battery twice and again the same problem. Quick recharge and swollen the body.
Anonymous, 18 Aug 2018still working like hell!I am still using since last 4 years. Intend to do the same for next two years. Just purchased a power bear battery of capacity of 6400 mah.
Lets see how it goes.
its garbage phone. very bad experience with LG. Just put the phone in charge in my office after few minutes it completed dead. when try to power on only LG logo appear. then turned off itself. i changed the battery but same. when try to goto download mode(Flashing mode) after few second turn off itself.. don't buy LG phones.
I face the same hitting problem. I face another problem that is there is the process android process acore has stopped. That's why it doesn't display the contacts list or dial pad. it is not fully eliminated through doing clear data of contact storage. it's very disturbing and continuously appeared in a few seconds. the other function is ok.

Sometimes the screen will... morethe same problem thats because the screen is heating from the motherboard and the pixels turn off it canot be repaired better by a new phone because all the lg g3 are doing the same problem i had 2 lg g3 and both the same problem.

Sometimes the screen will... moreYes, i too have LG G3, which is struck by two deadly diseases, first the screen will flicker and go block and repeatedly striking of power button will not help. Secondly it has network problem. At random the G3 will not show network even when sim is inserted. I am really struggling to get it repaired. Only answer can be buying of some old mobile from market,and replacing its motherboard screen etc.
Has anyone experienced this phone glitching when phone screen is on. Sometimes the screen will be on then it will glitch either fading away the screen slowly or just goes completely black. Once hitting power button it will not register screen stays black and it is a real struggle to get it back on
it was good phone my phone dead in start of 2017
i faced two major issue
1.)when i on Mobile Data and open google map, my phone power off and will not ON untill i remove battery and charge it for 10 sec
Got my second LG G3 H855 running LineageOS 7.1.2 super fast!!! The first one died because of CPU failure. Just remember to let it rest when overheating. Beside that, it's a true machine!
Anonymous, 06 Aug 2018What happen to your phone now still working like hell!
I'm quite surprised how well this phone holds up. had mine since 2015 and used it for almost a year then sold it to my brother and he used it for about a year as well. then I got him a zenfone 3 max 5.5 as a gift and he gave the G3 back to me.xD
I switch to it as my daily driver from time to time and I must say it's still holding well to this day. I guess it depends how much of a heavy-user the owner is. I use my phone mainly for texting, calls, facebook and email. but the battery-life is certainly not great. needs to be charged at least once daily. but as for functionality, it's still okay. no issues besides the short battery life.
also found this edge gestures app on the play store. did some research to hide the buttons at the bottom and it is now all-screen. kinda like on miui 9 and on iphone X. not that much of a difference to some, but it certainly freshens up the experience.:)
