AnonD-497656, 06 Feb 2016Official Marshmallow is available for LG G3 ????did u got the update
Anonymous, 05 Feb 2016I understand you my friend. But M8 camera is not bad at all. What about OnePlus X? It has 13mp... moreYeah I respect your suggestion but again the same problem ONEPLUS X has AMOLED display and I hate AMOLED PIXEL BURN IN on the other side in my country it is over price for about 450 USD to 500 USD and now I just have option to buy LG G3,HTC ONE M8, As SAMSUNG S4,S5 and Note 3 have AMOLED so I just skip them.So there are only two phones left behind HTC ONE M8 and LG G3 right now which are in my budget (250-300 USD) .Now I am really confused because HTC ONE M8 is good in every aspects accept camera which with your kind opinion is not bad.IMHO its 4MP resolution is a bit injustice with M8. It performs good in low light but in bright day light it over exposed the picture.
LG G3 as I have said earlier SD801 is not a good performer with QUAD HD.IMHO AFTER LG G2,it better upgrade to LG G4 than LG G3 as it handles QUAD HD Better with SD808, and also the colors and contrast ratio of LG4's panel have improved a lot.and also there a lot of improvement in camera department.So I think I would skip LG G3 and just wait for LG G4 to come down more (at that time it is about 350USD - 400 USD) and what will come in 2016 I Think the future is bright....:) (LG G5,NEXUS 7,XPERIA Z6,HTC ONE M10,IPHONE 7 (I think),Samsung s7,and e.t.c and may be Project ARA).
So if go for HTC ONE M8 I have to just sacrifice back camera(whose resolution is low and some minor problems like continuous auto focus e.t.c) and get everything good (like Performance,Better Display as compared to LG G3 w.r.t colors, contrast ratio,less power consumer because of 1080p and better brightness,solid metal built quality which is also good for heat dissipation, Speaker is not a Big deal for me both are good and I just use headphones for music and movies,but yeah it is plus point of HTC ONE M8,and also IMHO I can get more screen on time on HTC due its 1080p,)
While on LG G3 I have to sacrifice Performance,Battery,BUILT QUALITY as compared to HTC ONE M8 and get a nice camera.Sharper but less brighter,less contract ratio,bit off colored display as compared to HTC ONE M8 and I also get a removable battery which plus point of LG G3)
What do you say my friend???
Micheal, 02 Feb 2016Thanks a lot my friend you are really helpful GOD bless you all who are helping each other....... moreok buddy...
XPERIA Z2,LG G3,LG G2,HTC ONE M8,GALAXY S5,S4,NOTE 3,HUAWEI P8 LITE
xperia z2 is a good phone but i feel cheated with the camera it is supose to have and after all give u a terrible picture post processing is bad .... it is a shame based that they are sensors makers..... but performance is good, battery too.bad with this are the bezeels too too tall and wide for the screen it has. in my opinion this is a nooo for it.
lg g3 is the former sucessor of the G2 but.... poor battery ,darker screen,lost a lot of camera fuctions wich for me are good,better processor but doesnt look like that due to sd801 wasnt made for 2k screen.if u want to play lag is what u get on high graphic settings.. but still a decent phone excelelnt 4k video and beauty interface. because im heavy user id say no to it.
htc one m8..this device is beautifull and well constructed...i love the way it is plus i guess this is the best desing htc has in house... bad news are the terrible camera it has well acpable of 1080p but not as sharp and other cameras and not accurate colors... performance is ok but im not a fan of htc sense ui .......
galaxy s5 is balanced has a good camera... sd card...for xtreme gamers battery wont be an issue due to it can be replace it...has water protection like z2 wich i forgot to say by the way ... performace is excelelnt .,good for games and has marshmallow update too.
note 3 is an excellent phone too,excelelnt display ,excellent camera.4k video good for games,in the large side but it is ok for many people....
i have never been a fan of huawei my respct for the users of these device.... well not much to say good device,they have beautifull desings but has the weaker gpu between these phones...
and for the last my personal choice .... lg G2 .. besides s5 and note has FEW THINGS OVER MY DEVICE there is something that i love about it ... G2 has excellent screen to body ratio wich make it pocket friendly,easy to use with one hand due to has non bezeels...the 1080p screen it has is amazing even at 50% brightness u get excellent contrast and colors .....really sharp too u dont need more trsutme more pixels than over 400ppi will reduce performace..... for 1080p screen 2gb of ram are good enough plus whats the matter why bother in having more than 1gb of avaliable ram if there are no apps to use all of it...... even opening all apps that i have i dont use all of it......32 gb is enough for me plus otg is a good option...... camera is 13 mpx ois too,well only issue is that it is not the fastes shooter but it has a lot of detail and excellent pictures lowlight with flash on..if u know how to play with white balance and exposure u wont be needing anything else....front facing camera is just good ,in fact is for social nothing else......battery is amazing u wont miss a charger.....1080p video is perfect....if u want to root your phone then u can install a modded camera for it enabling 4k video.... even this device is one of the few capable to shoot in raw format... there is a thirdparty app for that ..... gaming my friend is a not worry for u in several years why ... well most of the new midrangers are using weka gpu and the market wont let a lot of devices out in order to satisfy high end hardware ..... games launched must run on adreno cards like 305/405 in order to sell games .. not to say those comming from kirin socs / mtk too ....... it has cool tricks like knock on / knock code for security ... my friend i cant remenber last time i was so happy with a phone... galaxy s5 and note 3 could be a choice for me too but im in love with my G2 ill stick with it until it damages.
Micheal, 05 Feb 2016Much appreciated your help and guidance ... you are awesome....GOD BLESS YOU MY DEAR..... Yeah... moreI understand you my friend. But M8 camera is not bad at all. What about OnePlus X? It has 13mp camera, micro SD card slot,3gb ram, looks and feels premium, ui won't lag, battery life is good too.
I don't remember, it is only 250 or 300$. I think it is most affordable and powerful phone for you.
AnonD-324989, 05 Feb 2016If you should buy Sony next time and camera is important for you buy LG G3.
Mine is Sony Z3 -... moreMuch appreciated your help and guidance ... you are awesome....GOD BLESS YOU MY DEAR..... Yeah there will be a lot of options in future like LG G5,XPERIA Z6,HTC ONE M10 (If they are wise enough to make it good one)one plus one lacks SD CARD slot and 16 GB is not enough for me I know there is 64 GB as well but it is not available here and also it has same price as of XPERIA Z3. and IMO no one can deny the freedom that is offered by SD-CARD.I have just some confusion about LG G3 that are a based on my research on different forums ... QHD screen has nice in sharpness but as it is first generation QHD so it has negative aspects too like low brightness,contrast ratio, and color is a bit off as compared to HTC ONE M8 SUPER LCD 3 and XPERIA Z3 Triluminus IPS lCD(which is the best in terms of everything like brightnss,contrast ratio,colors and also power efficient)
QHD it is a bit heavy on SD 801 (IMHO) and also not power efficient (which means I can't enjoy movies without any tension about battery draining),
To run Quad HD screen SD 801 and andreno 330 have to do a lot of work . and High work load cause heat generation and which cause processor throttling and dimming of screen brightness which is not good for me because in summer in my country temperature rises up to 50 degree Celsius and I don't know what will happen if I will go to use it in that temperature I am here talking about normal usage and for just 1080p movies playback from SD card and recording 1080p using in sunlight as SD801 has to do alot of work like recording 1080p utilizing hardware+software Stabilization,Displaying the content on 1440p screen,I know every electronics heat up when it on heavy usage I think the main culprit of heating of LG G3 is it QHD screen and this is not as pro of phone but a con(IMHO).
As you have replied earlier to someone else WHO IS ASKING ABOUT SELF CRACKING OF ITS CHASSIS that aviod heating it up and Nothing will happen to the chassis of LG G3. But how one can avoid heating it up while using QHD screen.
IMO the result which we are getting in sacrificing the performance and the battery timing is not so good I mean human eye can't see any thing beyond 312-320 ppi in fact My 17inch laptop has resolution of 1600*1200 and I don't have any problem of sharpness with it.
I think 1080p resolution is more than enough for about 6 inch screen. and it is not better screen than its predecessor accept the sharpness which is not necessary because 1080p screen is enough sharp for watching movies.If LG g3 has the same screen that they have used in LG G2 then LG G3 would be a wonderful phone IMHO.I think LG G4 is quite better to handle 2K screen because of SD 808 and they have also improved their camera and display a lot accept battery which is same as in its predecessors. I think SD 801 is at its best on 1080p screen.
SONY is just doing awesome job in every department just they have to improve its camera algorithm to make photos sharp and improve the durability of glass and also do some work on heat dissipation IMO they should use some heat conductor metal at the back on that place where the camera module, processor and GPU is located so it works as heat sink like in LAPTOPS AND DESKTOP PCs.
HTC is doing well also in everything accept camera they have to do some serious work on camera department M9s camera is not so good performer IMHO because of TOSHIBA CAMERA SENSOR . DEAR HTC just go and fetch SONY CAMERA SENSORS and make huge profits.
So to sum up I think QHD SCREEN under powers the SD 801.make LG G3 LESS PERFORMER THEN THAT ITS RIVALS like HTC ONE M8 AND THE beauty XPERIA Z3.
HTC M8 nice display( good contrast ratio,brighter and good color than LG G3 IMO) 1080p with SD801,HTC SENSE (IOS of ANDROID means lag free),Good performance,good stereo speakers,GOOD BATTERY LIFE due to 1080p. 90% made of metal better heat dissipation but..... you know what i mean CAMERA ...:( HTC you made me insane.
So what you say about my insanely long speech...:)
do you have any experience with wrong GPS position of the G3???
My phone wrong and indicate 3km away place. cant fix it.

I can buy M8 but only Its 4MP camera holding me back. I am sony fanboy but I would go for XPERIA Z3 which is best in z series and it is out of my budget may be next year or after 2 year I would go for XPERIA Z5.... I am not heavy gamer but watch a lot of movies, use camera and I dont like lag stutter OR ANYTHING LIKE That and IMHO HTC ALUMINIUM dissipates heat more efficiently than plastic what you say bro....????

Every phone heats due video recording (also force close) or gaming.. I think Z2 is good one...
About : design>built quality>display>performance>camera>battery
Design is very good, built with metal and glass, a bit fragile but OK with case.:)
Display is clear and amazing, performance is good too, Sony UI is faster and lag free
Battery life and camera are very good, but if you play games long time or record 4k video - phone will heat and battery will discharge a bit faster... Otherwise amazing phone:)
You can buy HTC M8 too...

I am confused
lior, 03 Feb 2016It is probably the worst phone I have had. I bought it only 6 months ago, and after few months... moreFactory reset and wipe cache partition
But LG is better than laggy Samsungs
Consider buying Sony phone
It is probably the worst phone I have had. I bought it only 6 months ago, and after few months of use, it started a loop of restarting which after a quick web search i found that the battery is dead so i replaced it, and its never been the same since that.
The camera has few options and the front camera is really bad. The rear one is really bad for nightly pix.
Lots of problems with receiving calls and calling - I restart the phone at least once a day.
The phone is warming up and the battery has a short life.
I will never buy lg phone again and will recommend NOT buying it to whomever I can
