I have had all kinds of problem with this device, from the bootloping issues to screen fading and flickering. Some days ago, after 2 year and a half of usage it suddenly shut down and can not be turned on. I doesn't charge also. LG ripped us all off with the G3.
i have been using my LG G3 for 3 years now
Battery starts to be exhausted
Brilliant screen resolution
I am planning to upgrade my phone but only to change
SONiCSWiNK1, 01 Jun 2017Be aware the G3 has very unstable battery . Not like Note 7 unstable.;p
I have been using this phone for about 2 years and 8 months.. here are my conclusions:
1. The sreen is really good i didnt get any flickering isue so far
2. The battery is ok..if u got a problem with bootloop its the sign u have to buy new battery n the phone will run as good as before. It happend to me n its solved by replacing the battery.
3. The phone get really hot only when use it for playing game for more than 1 hour. Opening other app will not make it hot only warm.
4. The camera is really good. Taking picture n video is a breeze.
5. I droped many times n the phone still working ok..i only apply thin clear cover.
Overall i love this phone..the only biggest thing troubled me Is the battery. but u can buy a new one which is not that much expensive. I think it will still kicking ass for the next 2 years. Currently im on android marshmallow..officilaly updated thru pc. Dont hesitate to buy this phone...current price is very affordable. But u must choose the 3 gigs ram variant.
I just bought this phone and it works better than some new 2017 models, so good for you LG.
As for those complaining; please learn how to use a feature instead of trying one, failing and then blaming LG that it doesn't work. Someone said there was a chance that that the G3 would receive Android Nougat... turns out to be false but I have used Nougat on this phone, with a custom rom. After further reading it seems I can also place Android Oreo on this phone, with a custom rom. Again, as with Nougat, it will run but you will not have access to any new features specific to that version of Android, probably the main reason it didn't officially get Nougat. Still, to have a phone that starts on Android 4.4.2 that can be upgraded to 8.0 sounds awesome; just goes to tell you how powerful this phone is. I'm currently running Android 4.4.4, I've tried 5.0, 5.1.1, 6.0, 7.0, 7.1.2 and I love it, but that's me, for you it could be Lollipop or Marshmallow (Marshmallow is my second favorite). To be clear I own a LG G3 D852 model and they go for about CA$160.

Sam, 08 Aug 2017Just a query whether LG G3 will get official nougat updateIt has been hinted that it might get Nougat but i don't believe it. G3 is 3 years old already so i would be totally surprised if LG were to update it to Nougat!

The problem that i am facing with my lg g3 is that whenever i need to charge my phone i will have to turn it off first then once the battery becomes fully charged only then i am suppose to turn it on otherwise it won't recharge if the phone is on
salmanthgf, 02 Aug 2017worst incident with such mobile in my whole lifeGood day Sir.... to ask you as I am getting a 2nd hand phone. I don't know which to buy some say Sony Xperia Z3 some say Samsung S5, and even recommend S6 and S7. i am tight budget and so far i see LG G3 is affordable. Can you suggest? Of cause I will not hold you responsible. My budget I have option to go for Samsung S4 or smasung 5 sony Z3 HTC One M8 or LG G3. Or maybe anyone can rank them as 1st, 2nd and so on for these 4 models Z3 Samsung S5 HTC one m8 and Lg g3
whitebeard, 05 Jul 2017I do have these two majors problems too. I get so angry when the battery fastly drains. Also w... moreI bought four LG G3s to my family in July 2015. We all have loved the superb pic and screen quality. Personally I like the colours the camera creates. They are natural and include pure grey shades instead of the yellowish pics of Samsung and other brands.
During this year one G3 started to over heat and another went crazy with a new sim. Battery life is short but is managed by carrying the charger with you everywhere. Many find this difficult, I dont. I have never understood people who complain they have a flat battery. This is a sign of laziness in my view. G3 has also a replaceble battery. When travelling I carry 2 loaded extra batteries with ne. They weigh just nothing.
G3 was a great device. If it lasts 2 years that is sufficient. In practice one has to buy a new phone anyways because of new performance requirements and capabilities. And I want a bigger screen and dual sim feature now.
I have D855 -32 GB model and using it for more than 2.5 years .I have not faced any issue so far neither network nor screen fading or flickering etc The battery usage is slightly disappointing however after Android 6 update I get one day life of battery on moderate usage
I backup my data and reset the phone every 6 months once so that I get the fresh feel of the phone
I am fully convinced even today the phone is the best one in the LG range of phone

My LG G3 D855 phine became IMEI null when I chose restore upgrade errors option in LG PC suite. I have disposed LG and I am using the monster Samsung Note 4 SM-N910G and happy with it.
With grim and pale heart, i am writing my experiences with LG G3, the model which unnecessarily got too much of attention and hype due to wrong advertising campaign by LG.The laser guided camera sharpness is just crap, and pics taken still resemble 2 MP photos. The main drawback is that the screen flickers and fades away, and no one can fix it.There is connector problem that connects screen with the motherboard. Secondly most of the time,there will be no network coverage.The only plus point is the beautiful 2k screen, but it is not usable, as phone design does not let you use the screen. Very sooner, the fading, flickering etc.starts.When someone buys this, I can guess, he must have been extensively impressed by the specs.but the fate is common to all. How sad it feels when the mobile screen starts to flicker, and suddenly becomes blank.
