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.
AnonD-123749, 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!!!!!
Don't buy G3. I bought and this was epic fail , laggy phone. HTC One M8 better than G3. I am happy with M8.
AnonD-292530, 21 Oct 2014Mr. Smarty!! who changed to ART are users who had G3 fail like hell with much heating lags and... moreIt's not about who is smart, don't go deffensive on me...Art is not ready yet...U'll have Art by default at Lollipop...and yes ppl that watch videos in Youtube and change developer options-windows animation scale-transition animation scale and animation duaration scale - their phone restarts and staff...so avoid all that, update to V10I and reset phone...then all should be working fine..If is not then your phone is defective. The LG G3 32 GB european version that i have tested fully has NO battery or heating problems... Instead of making fun to other ppl comments try to be logical and understand that the phone is fine, maybe some ppl have a defective or they don't know how to handle a phone with so much freedom of options(android/LG), this is not iphone u can play around alot....

Waiting for new update to see how it will improve the phone!!
by the way, on new update all settings will be changed including ART!?
mj2498, 19 Oct 2014I hate it when same people post same problem then tell this phone is just a crap. I'm planning... moreThis is interesting. How can you know if it's the European or Korean Version. Aren't all supposed to be "Made in Korea" or any other detail for Europe?!?!

No user will change any setting if phone was working good.
Think before commenting ridiculously.

When I was using note 2, Samsung provided frequent which are if no use and no visible difference which wasted my wired ADSL broadband's high speed data quota. After using the linited high speed quota, the speed changes to 512 Kbps unlimited usage.
I think LG is far more better in saving users' internet data by releasing only useful updates.
i have my g3, its very fast esp when playing games, no lag and im enjoying its features as well. ever since i used this, it seems like my other phone are very slow and now i think im neglecting my favorite iphone5 too. i also like the sound of the earphone, really great and not ordinary which can be compared to other popular brands of headphones.
AnonD-20890, 19 Oct 2014Do you know when G3 will get at least 4.4.4?.My bad. I didn't quite respond to your question earlier. 4.4.4 update is highly unlikely to come to LG G3 as pretty much all that was required in that update was already provided with the 4.4.2. As of this moment, GS5, One m8 and the rest that have 4.4.4 is nothing more that just a marketing ploy. G3's 4.4.2 with the latest V10L update should have you well covered until Lollipop arrives :)
AnonD-20890, 19 Oct 2014Do you know when G3 will get at least 4.4.4?.Unfortunately, No. LG hasn't yet made an official announcement on the timelines for G3 update to Android L. Now LG has had a bad reputation for not updating their phones with timely updates. But with the G3, I hope to see that change as I've had two incremental software upgrades in the last month.
Great battery life with new firmware in India. Amazing update. Update it guys. Note 4 killer now.
AnonD-272249, 19 Oct 2014Had mine since Oct 4. Updated to V10i OTA. No lag, decent battery life. Amazing phone.Ya. True.
