I am IT guy & after lots of research I bought this phone, i knew heat issue & cracks develop with time due to heat... but all in all 2 years and best phone ever... best coz it has remote which learns, radio, removable battery, laser camera, external sd card, 5.5' screen and it fits in small hands or pocket easily, lots of features. The key to success is that 1st I was using cloudy Rom and now marshmallow 30j ... never saw lag ever ... last 6 months I wanted to buy some new phone but couldn't find something similar with lots of options.

I loved it at first, fast, powerful, large screen. The drabness of the screen was a shock having just switched from a Galaxy S3, but you get used to it.
It runs hot, the keyboard seems to have some precision issues as I've never made so many typos in my entire life until now. Keyboard lag is very real; texting is slow to respond in both opening and reacting to keypresses. You can type a whole word or two after immediately sending a text and none of it will be typed except the last letter. Knock code is great for unlocking your phone like a magician, but the screen is laggy so you often need to do it very slowly (easy for people to learn your code) or 3-4 times before it finally accepts that someone is touching it (again easy for people to learn your code).
All in all it's alright, but it gets hot, slow to respond and peevishly inaccurate when typing. I don't install all kinds of weird apps and I close the running apps often to keep RAM and CPU available.. so there really isn't any reason for it to be like this, it just isn't a great phone.
I have owned the LG G3 for the last year and half with no issues. Yes, it did come with that lag but it was not extreme and did not hinder my use of the phone. The only other thing I noticed is that it could run pretty hot. However I bought it a big box store and got a $200 gift card with it which covered the taxes on other accessories and under Verizon's edge program my monthly payment went down $15 (phone added 18 so minimal impact) so it felt very worth it.
I loved the phone from the start. It was upgrade over my previous phone, a Motorola droid ultra, being faster and with a much better screen. I loved the screen to phone ratio. So much screen, so little phone. It wasn't all that much bigger than the droid. LG's implementation of Android I was familiar with from my LG Tablet and I do like it. Knock on and off is great and being able to have a button to get to notifications is easier than pulling down the screen.
But the main reason I feel compelled to offer an opinion is that the upgrade to Marshmallow really transforms this device. I noticed it as soon as I got the OTA upgrade. Gone was the lag, the phone ran smoother and even seemed brighter.
However, a few weeks ago my phone started running hot after I tried to download and install a benchmark program. Not sure what went wrong; maybe got some rouge program or a virus. Anyway I did a factory reset and the result was amazing! Now it didn't just not lag, it flys. It runs cooler and everything is so much smoother. When I compare it to the new phones at Verizon, it seems to keep up with them just fine. I am not saying it is as fast only that the difference is not inspiring me to upgrade.
I have another 6 months of payments remaining and can upgrade early and may do that but it will not be because of the phone's performance.
Oh yea, did I mention I like the buttons in back....
I have LG G3 D855, i am facing the only problem of no signals, not all the time but ofthenly the signal goes missing, i dont know whats wrong with this, does anyone have simple solution to this???
G3 is best all rounder at affordable price. This phone has everything. It even has the little things like wifi ac support that most phones dont have. This guy Sudhakar works for samsung dont believe him.

Have this phone more than one year now. Got it as a gift. Otherwise I won't buy it. Use mainly for music, sometimes quick camera shots and watch movies while in bed. And browse internet too. There are few cracks near mic. Often time some screen spots get numb (certain spots don't react to finger touch). After hafl a year constant use with headphones now static noise is annoying. Can't listen soft music or watch movies or youtube with headphones. I red that is all LG G series problem. So if you are going to use this phone with headphones or you are considering G4 or G5 as well - forget about it for your ears sake. After it got Android 6 update overheating got less but it still noticeable. But update added flashlight to taskbar. On Android 5 there were no flash light stock app or button. If would have to choose, I would never go for LG again and won't recomend it.

S . SUDHAKAR, 29 Sep 2016Check the IMEI number. Because my G3 got bricked because of restore upgrade errors.Thanks, mine seems okay with it. And good luck with your next phone! Marshmallow looks nice but it should've been OTAed much earlier by LG for sure.
Did LG think updating G3 may put users off G5, and that's the reason of this desertion?
Now folks sing the praises of V20 but can't help but feel a bit iffy.
