I've used ALL the heavy hitters this last year and the G3 is overall the best. Better camera than M8 and larger screen, knock on is way better and button placement is superior, S5 has slightly better camera but is not an attractive phone like G3 and DO NOT get your S5 wet unless it's your "forever phone", cuz it's not worth a dime after you do. UI on G3 is better than S5 but not M8 and really do not like Sony's.
I'm a pretty heavy user and I start up at 100% at 5am, it easily makes it through my dozens of phone calls, texts, 200 emails, you tube, dead trigger\asphalt8, internet, I swap battery like at 10-11pm right before the 5% comes up. My Nexus 5 was on the charger before I left the office. Also have Qi cover coming, great call quality, and if u like music it has a really great "surround" mode that really makes the music punch through headphones that is. I walk outside with the phone all day and can see it way better than my S5 so there's some real world for you, there was a time where the battery drained faster than it does now but I think it adapts cause it lasts longer now. The only negative that really bugs is, in the email server typing sometimes lags as well as refreshing\adding flags and the buttons in the app are not well laid out for 1 handed use, but overall Its a very versatile phone. I'd recommend it over any other phone at present, although the HTC E8 seems interesting.
Guys, I'm torn between this & Z2, please advice which one's worth the money.
Thanks in advance.

Hildo Haster, 06 Aug 2014I honestly don't think the G3 will compete with the Samsung Galaxy Note 4or rather not, just check out the specs,

Blak, 06 Aug 2014M8. I used G3 and returned it, there was a considerable lag compared to other phones. #Blak, seriously???? lag??? have you checked the specs? very doubtful of that. sounds like you really don't know what your are talking about, nor have used lg g3 - for real, not in your imagination.

I have had the auto shutdown problem with my 32gb G3. Updating to V10g decreased the frequency but did not solve the problem. LG needs to come clean with the issue.

Indian G3 D855 just received V10i......Yeah !
better power optimization and stability update !
