WOW. Memory shrink to 1.1 GB used 1.7GB free after change to ART. It was the opposite!
Will continue monitoring it for a day least.
By the way, those who talk about 2-3 days before charging G3 may be users that barely use their phone!!
Any phone will last that long or little below if rarely used!!
Battery Life is tested on high usage, not turn screen for 30 minute than on..and so on..
Screen must be on all the time..browsing working on G3..
Testing it like that shows G3 4-6 hours until 0%
Lets see if this will improve on ART!!!
Well, tried this as last chance to solve the G3 heating problem as LG technicians advice it. Lets see..
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Are you sure or just guessing?Sure. It was 5%, started battery charge after 1 hour it became 80%, but I had it plugged to socket that has other devices in it. When am at home or office I don't leave it to drain that long, mainly 80-70% I recharge it again. Will test it again from low %
About the heating and short battery life, had anyone tried to change run time from dalvik runtime to art??
I have done it now, will test G3 for few days and see..
It is very sad that like a brand lg says false things .....on battery body wrote it is a li-ion battery .....but software like cpu-z / all other software it says it a li - poly battery it was very sad for me ......to know such a very big lie from lg :(
Anonymous, 13 Sep 2014Now out of this 26hrs 58mins of usage, how many hours is the screen on time? as in how many ho... moreΤoday i only surf internet to check some forums.. Yesterday night got some heavier use with utube etc..
And yes atm is at 29h 17 min without electricity and it says that i wont be need it with that usage for 20 h 27 min more...
Its a phone so unless u watch movies and play games endless the whole day this battery would last u 2-3 days...
AnonD-123749, 13 Sep 2014As i said before i got Lg G3 3GB version D855 Gold. Atm my battery is at usage 26h 58 minutes ... moreNow out of this 26hrs 58mins of usage, how many hours is the screen on time? as in how many hours your has been on_ go to your battery status and check it. Secondly, does it mean you haven't plugged your phone to electricity in the past 27hrs?
As i said before i got Lg G3 3GB version D855 Gold. Atm my battery is at usage 26h 58 minutes and it says it will last 39 hours more(Estimate. That change if i use it a lot ofcourse):P So about three days if u use it for business (Calls/emails/some Utube videos and Gps when need it only)and brightness around 40-50 even less sometimes since i dont need more it hurts my eyes, specially the night 30-40% is just fine.If i am outside in the sun sometimes use it at 50-70% Max...All that because of the amazing stand by time...When i don't use it it almost stay the same percentage for hours and hours...
-Feel free to ask me more about the phone since i trully have it and i can post Screenshots on the fly, dont listen to funboys or ppl that dont know how to use it....
Anonymous, 12 Sep 2014I find the G3 to be a very very good phone. People complaining about the battery life, what do... moreHaving massive 5.5" screen is not an excuse to have poor battery. I've seen phones with bigger screen fair better than this. Samsung Note 3 for instance has 5.7" and the battery lasts longer than that of G3.
Worst smartphone I have ever owned. All the hype is unwarranted. Tried variety of solutions to battery/lag/overheating problems and they always came back. VERY POOR multitasking, lots of lag, frequently uncomfortably hot, battery never lasts a whole day with normal use. I survived two months and wanted to destroy it. File system is biggest complaint: very slow across all transfers, automatically cancels operations if bumped to background. Terrible USB interaction.
Hi there! I am a G3 owner and my phone lessen heat issue at the time when i tick the force gpu render under developer optionand i put all animation to 2x under developer options.
Anonymous, 09 Sep 2014Pls stop lying about the battery. It's not true and you know it. You can't use this phone hea... moreHe dont lie! Mine works same, even more than 1 day. This phone is not for gaming, buy playstation or ixbox. Who buy smartphone for gaming????
I find the G3 to be a very very good phone. People complaining about the battery life, what do you expect? It's a huge 5.5in screen, if youre using it on full brightness and playing games, you honestly cant expect the battery to not drain. When I use mine casually though out the day (i.e. checking instagram, reddit, youtube video here and there) my battery lasts from 9am to 9pm. Now, If I stream netflix or use it heavily, the battery will die. As I expect. If you drive your car at 9000rpm, you'll run out of gas faster than if you drove at 3000rpm.
For people complaining about lagging, Root the phone, and get Nova Prime launcher, it FLIES. Much better than TouchWiz
dhanusaud, 12 Sep 2014please go for Z2. I returned G3 within a week because its kinda laggy.Delete what shit antivirus what comes free and you notice a lot performance and battery life. Trust me!
Which one should go for LG G3 or Sony Z2. Most people said g3 battery issue and all. Please help which one should go for in the sense of battery, emails and office work type, between these two. Need suggestion
dhanusaud, 12 Sep 2014please go for Z2. I returned G3 within a week because its kinda laggy.Sony troll..please buy lg g3..no laggy at all..
