i had the phone from Kitkat to lollipop same issues..
but after the hard reset.. it gave improvements.. battery life is quite longer... the battery heating was lessen..
I did not believe first about the "hard reset" but after I did it.. It solved most of the G3 complaints.. so its a Kudos to LG for improving their phones through updates
Battery life.. Im connected through the data for almost 24 hours.. So I cant really complain or be happy with battery life because I use it a lot. for people are complaining about how battery sucks, ask yourself how frequent do you use the phone?
Have been using LG G3 32 GB version for two month. Well I am rather dissatisfied. Its okay for any mid range phone. But overheating issues, battery drain, crashes destroyed my experience. It overheats like hell. Even while browsing. I decided to keep brightness to 30% auto.This helps a bit. Kitkat was good. But with Lollipop V20C update its become laggy,overheats even more. battery hardly lasts a day. UI was crashing frequently and I chose to hard reset last night. Well I did that before updating too.
I am pissed off with this overheat problem. Just hoping 5.01 would solve it.what good changes did Lollipop bring.??? I cant find any good changes in my device. Nothing has improved.Even UI is laggy. If you haven't noticed pressing home button or after multitasking pressing clear all button will show you. I simply loved this phone and chose it over note or one series. But truth is am not satisfied. Hope LG responds to the problems and addresses them quickly with a new SW update.
sahil raza, 21 Feb 2015Plz plz plz suggest me which One is best..lg g3 or samsung note3 or iphone 6..plz help mehey as per my view Samsung galaxy note 3 is better than Lg g3. G3 has 2k display n more than 500 ppi bt due to dat some lag are there. evn i dont lyk LG's UI as its look cartoonish. n about iphone 6 its definitely awesome, bt the major issue is price; its exact double of G3/note 3. Lets get u decide wht u expect more...
Anonymous, 25 Feb 2015Tell me friend. Can I buy this phone?If you've done your due diligence, then by all means go ahead and buy it!! IMO it's a great device and a breath of fresh air in the sea of same old tired designs. Here are a few "observations" from my near 6 months usage of LG G3 D855 32gb model,
- Screen clarity, sharpness, colour reproduction, viewing angels, brightness etc are all Very Good. I am perfectly happy keeping my G3 at 60% brightness. That's my sweetspot!
- Battery backup is Good. Not Great. Good. But that's understandable as it has a QHD screen. But "Good" is perfectly fine for daily usage and can last over a day with no fuss. I don't play Games so can't comment there.
- Design is subjective to personal preference, but to me it's beautiful!
- Music quality, depth, loudness, crispness is good. Not as good as my old S3 but still good enough to be my daily driver.
- Watching movies/videos is truly an experience thanks to that gorgeous screen! And Yes the phone will "warm" up a bit if you watch for too long. That goes for any handheld video consumption device. Look it up!
- LG may not have gotten the OS right the first time, but they have worked on it hard since then. Right now I have been enjoying Lollipop for nearly 3 months and my phone is fast and devoid of any significant lags (minor lags here and there are OK in my book as no phone is perfect)
- Camera is Great. Enough said.

Overall I rate only LG G3 10/10 Since LG and G2-G3 most Innovated Company/phones.
Camera Stabilization---all company's copy...
Best 1st Bezzel...Lg made the 1st step..
Most beautiful phone 2014
Back Buttons...OMg they Rock..
Thats why rewarded the title Phone of the Year 2014:P
For lg g3 d855 32gb
Design is classy and tough
Sound quality is excellent
Display is excellent
Ui is very good
Multitasking is the best
Camera is awesome
Ir blaster is very useful
All type of connectivity options
Battery is worst.it drains very quickly
Gaming performance is poor.there is highly level of frame drop
Phone heats like a hell while playing high graphic games.
It even heats while performing common tasks.
This battery life and gaming issue is shameful for a phone of such a class. But these issues can be solved by software update. So please release a software update LG so that these issue can vanish.
Otherwise it is very good phone.software optimizations can make a lot difference.
My old moto g despite of having lowend hardware has a snappy performance. It is sometimes as fast as my g3. Because its software is fully optimized.

Nick, 24 Feb 2015Should i buy 32gb(3gb RAM) or 16gb(2gb RAM), cause i see 2gb has better benchmark results?Better buy 32 GB variant itself.
@blackperal.. kindly clear you Play Store Cache from setting and it will be working fine. If you are running it 1st time and not working kindly update your Apps from Setting -> About Phone -> Update Center -> Update Apps..

AnonD-363169, 24 Feb 2015Guys !!! Thnx fr ur help, bt at the same tym im cnfusd by the reviews. Help me . Read the reviews and make sense to the best of your knowledge. At the end of the day, Reviews only depict HALF the story as EVERY user and their respective usage is unique to them. LG G3 is a Great Device and suits the commoner in daily tasks just as well as any other device right now. Go ahead and buy it if you like it!!
P.S. I love my G3 and haven't faced any of the reported issues pertaining to Excessive Heat, Battery Lag, Performance Drops etc etc.
Anyone who has used both s2 and s3, is s3 worth the extra amount we hve to pay
