All the haters stop lying to people here. The G3 is a good all rounder. The battery life may not be the best but thus phone is nothing short of amazing. Ive been using mine for 2yrs now. Marshmellow helps abit with battery. Just follow these steps:
Turn off animations from developer settngs. This wil give u no lag in the ui
Upgrade to marshmellow
Try using the phone on 50 to 60 % brightness.
This is for anyone interested in buying a G3. Dont listen to the haters comparing this phone to samsung becoz after 1yr all samsung phones start to lag the software is too heavy.
This kind of LG is good but one problem i must charge my LG phone or it will reboot non stop until battery runs out but LG Developers fix this problem
Best Phone i have been using for One month no any problem for me , it has all the Option including Fm Radio, Infrared , BT, wifi, External Memory , 32 GB internal Memory , Great phone . . . .
The LG G3 is junk; so is the company. Great design but poor performance. I am sending my phone back to LG for the 3rd time due to bad software. Phone will not pass routing authentication, randomly reboots, and the battery drains quickly without use. I addition to the phone being junk, LG could careless about the customer. I will NEVER purchase another product from LG.

Would you guys suggest marshmallow update or its better to stay in kitkat?
I don't know about you guys? Why the negative reviews?
Im quite satisfied with the G3's performance
I do have the D858 Dual-Sim+LTE 3GB RAM variant
Probably the 3GB RAM is the difference-maker among all G3's
Screen is good (not bad?), the screen itself is not the best, but the resolution is future-proof. Battery is not bad, I mean I am comparing it to the likes of Zenfone Selfie, alot of Samsungs and some Moto G's (I recently regretfully sold Moto G3, it has great battery backup), and I would say G3 is at the middle of the pack, battery backup-wise. No worries, it is removable.
Overheating, yes, due to non-stop screen lit time, but it signifies you should get some rest too.
Camera is excellent. Rear cams on cameraphones are virtually identical, but no one else mentioning here is the strength of its 2MP front cam with great speakers. It interprets light and sound very well in video recordings. Moto's front cam for comparison is too dark in frontcam video recording, Zenfones (Selfie and Zen 2) front camera shots are good, but its video is lackluster and blurry, with inconsistent autofocus. Samsung frontcams are good, although yellowish in color, and the audio is mono-like.
Combined with hot small-bezel looks, I must say G3 is still a very strong contender in mid-end phone market. Rule of thumb, value-wise, is that former flagships are better than mid-end new releases due to electronic devices' depreciation value. TL;DR - LG G3 is a good buy.
Ruby, 01 Sep 2016 LG G3 is a veryyyyy bad device !! i bought it before one year only and during this year it c... moreThe device isn't that bad to be quite honest. I've had it for 2 months. I'm on marshmallow & it works terrific. Performance is really good. It lags occasionally especially when I have tonnes of apps opened but that's expected. Battery is the culprit here. It sucks, pretty bad but it's okay seeming it has a removable back.
Overall I'm quite pleased with the device. I think marshmallow really improved the performance & interface by heaps, definitely have no second thoughts on downgrading to Kitkat or Lollipop.
I use LG G3 D855. I tried to update to marshmallow using LG PC suite and LG mobile support tool but every time the upgrade gets stuck at 9%.
Great device, no idea why there are so many bad ratings here. Bought it about 2 years ago and everything is great. I've even got Android 6.0.1 running on it (thanks @Cyanogenmod) and I can get daily updates.
The stock-rom (by LG) was not too good tho. For me it's 4 of 5 stars.
LG G3 is a veryyyyy bad device !! i bought it before one year only and during this year it cost me more than half of its price to fix it >>> problems i faced :
1) bad buttery after 6 months and so it make a lot of problems
2) blue screen DEATH SCREEN and i replace the mother bored
3) replace a new screen after the ordinary one damaged
4) the wifi stopped suddenly and it doesn't work back even of format
