Bottom Line: I'm sure that no user will come here giving too much details about problems with G3 without really being fed of it!!!
Same for no normal user will change phone settings if the device is working properly.
I know nothing about note 4 pros and cons but just comparing specs it's surely better than G3.
Reading technician opinions and tests on G3 proves my opinion and experience with my G3 so far.
LG must had made more tests on G3 before releasing it. Maybe its lack of experience in this category, its engineers went very happy in the QHD thing forgetting of further tests and other specs. compatibility!!!!!

Real users can be separated easily from trolls
No troll gives details from experience with the device.
I can't understand how same phone can differ between many users. How can a phone purchaser know if the device will be defective or not!?!!
Is it normal buying an expensive device that turns up to be defective!?!!
Talking about G3 when saying defective that means at least half of the released G3 by LG!!! seeing how much complaints in several forums that discuss similar problems that I had faced most if not all!!!
Last was some minutes ago, the network was cutting using my G3 internet on my laptop via wifi hotspot.
Nothing helped than turn it off removing the battery then on again..
Guess what now?!! Network working normally no cuts nothing!!!
Something strange related to battery and most G3 problems!!! that have nothing to do with software from this point of view(battery!!!)
S . SUDHAKAR, 04 Nov 2014LG is not a that much famous in smartphone market. Give some time for it to prove. Understood?... moreI believe every phone is unique.. unique in a way that this person got a working phone while the other one got a defective phone. User experience matters and it's also unique. One might hate this, and one might love it as it caters to its needs (as well as wants too). We can't actually convince others that this phone is the best and the other s*cks.
As an ex-xperia user, I can say that I'm happy I switched to LG G3 since I want a phone that is compact but with large screen (yup hate those xperia bezzels.. they keep on coming). For the past few months of usage, it's still good. However, when I compare my G3's lag vs. to my friends S5's lag, the new touchwiz ui is much smoother.. makes me want to go to Samsung's side to give it a try (display too.. I love vibrant colors.) Take note that they both have 16GB storage with 2GB of RAM.
If LGes is not satisfied, let him be. He must be a dissatisfied user. But to call a person "troll" that should set a fire here :)
For those who are not happy with this phone, just share your experience. But to condemn them is already crossing the line. It's not easy to make a phone that would cater to all the needs of people. Why don't you try making your phone? :)
In the end, we are all winners. There's no end to advanced technology, all we need to do is to keep on trying different brands and find out which brand satisfies our needs.
LGes, 04 Nov 2014LG want to use 4.4.2 instead of 4.4.4 and want to combine the first with some LG software plus... moreCan you tell me any useful and VISIBLE differences between 4.4.2 and 4.4.4?. Do you know about the shameless memory card limitation by the google in android 4.4 and later?. There is nothing to blame the mobile manufacturers. I think google is indirectly tweaking in a negative manner in such a way that even if G3 has 5000 mAh battery, it will last only for 24 hours. So better lets all unite together and make the google to remove the memory card restriction since 4.4 and also the flight mode access restriction by third party apps since 4.3 version. The it is upto you whether to troll, spam or make google to understand here.
LGes, 04 Nov 2014Call me a troll no problem but these are facts that LG is horribly changing software every sho... moreLG is not a that much famous in smartphone market. Give some time for it to prove. Understood?. You should have said the same about samsung when Nokia was rocking in mobile phone segment with Symbian OS.
LGes, 04 Nov 2014What trolling are you talking about you ***** I own G3 that never worked smoothly from day ... moreDo you think these reasons are strong enough to hate G3?. Does ot make much difference for normal users?. Anyway note 4 and G3 does not have autofocus facility in front camera. So what is the use even if the front camera is 10 MP?.
LG want to use 4.4.2 instead of 4.4.4 and want to combine the first with some LG software plus lowering specs(801 instead of 805 and so on..), after that how could users not face problems from time to time.
This had been proven that G3 performance drops after hours of usage compared to other smartphones even the not new releases ones like M8 for example(go ahead and name me HTC troll if you like...who gives a ...)
Call me a troll no problem but these are facts that LG is horribly changing software every short time to cover its very bad mistake!!!!!!
kcdad, 04 Nov 2014I had the same problem with my G3 and I shut it completely off to charge and now it doesn't ov... moreI doubt it has anything to do with shutdown.
I will tell you why the battery is becoming better after that process...
Simply, because G3 has some stupid error that when you turn it off then on, the memory running decrease to some 1.3GB, after sometime of usage it increases to 1.7GB despite no add of new apps or open new apps have occur
This problem is due to LG ... technicians bad compatibility bt. processor battery and screen when building the phone, where Samsung technicians have not gone to this mistake in note 4.
LGes, 04 Nov 2014What trolling are you talking about you ***** I own G3 that never worked smoothly from day ... moreThis guys is impossible. Always keep trolling in samsung forums. and soon he will start trolling in LG forums too.
S . SUDHAKAR, 04 Nov 2014Stop trolling. Note 4 specs vary with G3 only in the processor, chipset, both the cameras. Tha... moreWhat trolling are you talking about you *****
I own G3 that never worked smoothly from day one.
Had to make many tweaks to make it work on average!!!!
and have to accept some stupid errors from time to time
Saying the Fact is not trolling, all phone users can check it easily:
Camera: 16MP Prim, 3.7 MP Sec.
Android OS, v4.4.4 (KitKat)
Qualcomm Snapdragon 805
Quad-core 2.7 GHz Krait 450
Li-Ion 3220 mAh battery
(sure missed others too)
All the above specs are better than G3 ones, so if all these are not important when comparing 2 android smartphones then it shows your knowledge!!!!!!!
By the way, Sony phones have the best camera FULL STOP
Having non removable battery is not something badknowing that iphones have the same and no need to talk about Apple quality;)
Mo, 29 Oct 2014I have that buzzing sound may be the Minor issue.Yes I am
Anyone else having trouble with connection?? I can hear them but they can't hear me. No problems with battery here. I already changed out device once went to the stores
don123, 04 Nov 2014Lg g3 has worse battery just accept this factThis a forum to help people with their phone problems, not to shame someone for their choice of equipment. Grow up!
Your high battery usage may be caused by the ff:
1. low signal area
2. location set to high
3. high brightness( 100%?)
4. rouge apps running in background
5. some cases due to faulty sd card(constant scanning)
Use the ff tools to monitor - Greenify, Wakelock detector and CPU Spy(deep sleep monitoring)
