Had it since july, and I like almost everything about the phone except the on-screen battery life. Even after hours of optimizing the phone, the standby time has increased to over a week at 100%, but the screen-on time will drain at a rate of 10% every 30 min while playing 3-d games. I hear that some people get twice that much, so I think it may depend on the battery. By the time I purchase a spare battery, it won't be a problem anymore. Besides the battery, there's minor lag when using a few of the system apps like the calendar, but that's due to poor optimization and 3rd party apps run flawlessly. If you're considering this phone, the 3GB RAM version is not necessary, I find that I am only using 50% of it even while gaming or leaving many apps open.
Sorry excuse for a phone. "Upgraded" from LG Google Nexus 4, to this POS. Old phone has 13GB memory. This one, a measly 8. At&T data transfer not able to transfer stuff to new phone due to insufficient memory. Only able to do contacts, texts. On day one, Google Chrome had update due. Unable to download update due to insufficient memory. The system data to make the phone work takes almost 4 GB of the 8 available. I know I can get card to increase the memory, but morons at LG could include a $20 card in an almost $400 phone so we could actually use it. Does LG think we're that stupid? Last LG phone I'll get.
Also ever since ive updated to v10j it really has made my phone feel like a flagship device. I just really hope they dont take too long updating our g3's to android lollipop because even though the g3 is a brilliant device it has lots more potential with future updates
Has anyone updated there g3 to v10l software yet because i read on the internet that it was to lose the lag on the ui and better battery performance, but i updated ota a week or so ago to v10j and that fixed the lag n has better performance.. Uk 16gb 2gb of ram version im using
How's your experience with v10i-eur-xx?
I've noticed smoother and faster response from the ui.
Not much about the battery performance, i just updated my g3 this afternoon.
Great phone never had any issues with lag dias get a litle bit warm now and then when gaming for long amount of time but onle with demanding games and it's only becose it chanels the heat efficently to the outside to keep cpu and gpu running smoof camera works perfectly for me even when recording uhd battery life is amazing 2day's no recharge and still at 15% looks grate and not to mutch bloatware out of the box big thumbs up from me
Rain Oreo, 22 Oct 2014I find LG G3 the best mobile phone so far and im basing on the specs and functionality. Howeve... moreYes I think this phone is amazing and camera I took a pic of my wife on a carnival ride spinning around very fast and it was flawless I even had a guy next to me with a Samsung Galaxy 5 ask me how I did that lol but your so right battery is a big problem I wish they had some down play tweaks like the G2 turning cpu to 2 core from 4 and a display tweak 4k to 720p might help on a regular basis
Ken, 22 Oct 2014Do any of the Quick Circle apps works when you have security lock in place? e.g. pattern, PIN... moreyes. apps and even the puppypop game works even when you have security lock in place. mine is set to knock code.
I find LG G3 the best mobile phone so far and im basing on the specs and functionality. However, i find the power to be a little disappointing compared to G2. it can only barely last a day as compared to my G2, which can last beyond 24 hours even with heavy usage. This is probably because of the powerful display. Everything else is just pure awesome. Also, if they can make this water-resistant, it will be a major plus.
Currently, been having a great time with how g3 works. great performance and screen resolution. Buttons at the back made my life easier as well though initially made me think twice. battery went better, camra is wonderful with addtl functions like the selfie mode. Screen size large enough but easy to hold due to thin bezel. Couldn't ask for more, its a true beauty.
Anyone knows this problem?
When i start my phone and search the network signal,they will be restart 2 or 3 times,and some time off. When the mobile is off can not start whether the plug in for charging. But when the mobile is flight mode can start easily.

Anonymous, 05 Sep 2014Just bought LG G3 32GB 3G RAM. Frank Review i think the phone is good design is awesome. Came... moreI have a question about the Circle case. If you have any type of lock screen security setup, does any of the quick circle app works without entering the security codes or knock code?
My G3 is made in Korea. Updated to V10i. Shifted to ART. Made a hard reset. Now, everything works like a charm! I really like using it with my Chromecast and enjoying 'cast'. It's been a month using my G3 and it makes me happier!!
Am waiting for new update to give my experience with this BS phone that I tried a lot to make it work normally from factory reset to ART to lowering brightness bt. 10-30% most of the times to improve battery short life to....what's the importance of a new phone when must work on dim light just to keep it working okay without too much heating lags.......instead of simply enjoying using it in different conditions even when a heavy user.
Despite all problems were fixed through removing battery and inserting it again but from what century is this device to always do that after any problem?!!!!
To add another bad experience with the BS G3, just now while using wifi hotspot, the internet speed went slow then went off on both sides phone and PC.
For sureness that it's G3 network problem that occurs every sometime, I instantly power off the phone removed the battery then on again.... Internet back again working on both Phone and PC through hotspot.
So, who want to stupidly create delusion of G3 have no problem must eat his words first.
Wipeout, 21 Oct 2014It's not about who is smart, don't go deffensive on me...Art is not ready yet...U'll have Art ... moreMr. lolipop!!! You keep on manipulating my words, not admitting that G3 has many problems and the basic ones of heating, lags and short battery can not be forgiven.
Put this in your mind once and for all:
G3 users who changed settings it was because of your LG useless engineers who made a flaw device sacrificing better processor and battery(like the one found in note 4) to compete in given lower price.
Besides, LG Customer Care that suggested ART change so go ask them why!?!!
If any G3 user took it to LG Customer Case they'll do the same of ART, animation whatever changes and you'll be more than happy just because they changed it not yourself!!!!
It is not about getting a defective G3, if that was true then half of G3 devices in the market are defective looking at many users in many forums facing same problem and I bet if the others left are heavy users they'll face same problems too!!!, so LG must recall the 100s thousands of G3 and give the users new ones with no question asked.
Well, talking about iPhone and Apple, the only thing holding me from buying it is just its high price, not that can't afford it but since it's not logic to buy a phone of 1GB Ram abd dual core for double the price of G3 with better specs., however all tests approved that iphones are flawless...
My friends have the 4S and it had never failed or lagged in anyway, no heating nothing that andriod devices keep on facing!!!!!
