man of war, 23 Mar 2016S5 has better battery, better screen in terms of colors and contrast ,g3 has bigger display an... moreI think just better on the spec sheet but on the whole experience, I don't think G3 is far behind or in some case actually a lot better than S5. Here's the 5 reasons for someone deciding between 2 of them:
1)G3 has curved back body with what I consider anti fingerprint material compared to S5 with flat and generic patterned look. Since I mostly use my phone without case, the curved back feels more comfortable to hold and tapered side easier to grip. (can say I'm really into curved back since all my smartphones in recent past has this feature; Moto X, Lumia 920, Zenfone 2)
2)G3 volume button placement on the back feels more comfortable for someone that usually making phone calls. Power button placement is no issue here as you can always double tap the display to turn on or off the screen (though I'm not sure if this feature work if you use 3rd party home launcher)
3)Contrary to popular believe, what I gain for quad hd screen worth the slightly more battery usage. The difference in battery consumption and performance hit is not night and day unless you're more into gaming. (I have my PSP for gaming on the go purpose since I'm not comfortable wasting my phone battery)
4)Do you hate seeing Samsung logo everywhere? That's me :) Besides, the very slim bezel on G3 make it looks more gorgeous than S5 (can say I even like G3 design better than S6 and S7)
5)I don't like to use hardware button and Samsung make it worse by inverting the back and recent button placement. With G3 I can even customize the home button combination, where I add notification panel to quickly access it without swiping from top and Qmemo for taking screenshot, edit it if need to and share it immediately.
The worst phone...i charge my battery 4 time in 1 day...this is shit...
well i got mine and i bouth a batery for it extra of 4500
and it the best thing ever they also put a cream on the back of the phone and it never runs slow , super cool grafics for the games i really like it i wana but the new version

geesedude, 29 Mar 2016Yeah, i didn't follow this particular set of instructions, but i got sick of waiting and just ... moreYep your right, I got sick of waiting, dec15, then Jan16, and so on.
These manufacturers don't get their consumers, give a firm date and stick to it. I like the G3, it's a great phone but LG have been terrible with this update roll out.
southafrica , 29 Mar 2016Everyone just complains and complains lets give credit to the lg g3 . i love this phone and it... moreAll softwares like firefox, youtube, typemail hang in G3 D855. Note 4 is infinite times better than G3 D855.

Works fine. http://www.droid... moreYeah, i didn't follow this particular set of instructions, but i got sick of waiting and just went and installed in on my own. I just don't get why it takes so long for carriers to roll it out. Frustrating.
The only issue I have with this phone is the overheating during gaming and heavy tasks. I do not experience any of the other problems stated here even the screen dimming under max brightness. I am on Lollipop V.5 and being using this device for about 14 months now. I think people expect too much from their phones now days that why so many complaints. If you want long battery life buy a phablet.

Has links to everything you need to flash the official MM ROM.
Everyone just complains and complains lets give credit to the lg g3 . i love this phone and its awesome well done lg . i dont even think the g5 is close to this no wonder its an award winning handset
