What reviews you reading?lol the g3 has one of the best cameras on any high end phone regardless of megapixels. Sony always struggles with their camera units the z2 isn't any different

Talk time: 25 hrs 15 mins
IM/Browsing on Wifi: 11 hrs 42 mins
Video Playback of SD quality file: 9 hrs 28 mins
That vs G3's
Talk time: 24 hrs 54 mins
IM/Browsing on Wifi: 6 hrs 40 mins
Video Playback of SD quality file: 9 hrs 57 mins
So SD video play went up a bit on the the G3, this was to be expected with the 3A optimizations. Play real QHD media and the battery life will be obviously lesser.
Web-browsers can take advantage of the QHD display so the GPU stress is more hence the lower battery life times but even then LG's 3A optimization should help a bit and it has otherwise you would be looking at dismal sub 5 hr browsing times, plus the stock browser is never any good in battery life anyway. People surf with other browsers and those yield better screen on-times.
And on top of ALL that the lovely WiFi 11-12 hrs GSM arena gets on Z2 or G2 on IM/Webbrowsing is never achievable on 3G/LTE, most get 3.5-4 hrs tops on heavy all day mobile data usage. Radios perform differently compared to WiFi and mobile data efficiency for the same SoC nowadays is largely dependent on the network you are on exactly why GSM Arena doesn't test something that is as unreliable as a mobile data connection for consistent repeatable results.

G3 / G2 - 3G talk time - 24:54h /25:01h & Video playback - 9:57h/11:51h. Wats d big deal here. wake up and dont talk and post fake info.
LG is a moron. Listened to Android fanboy and actually put a screen with half-baked technology into their phone. Comparing with G2 (http://www.gsmarena.com/lg_g2-review-982p2.php), G3 only managed half the web browsing time and 75% video playback. Contrast ratio is half G2's 1500 so it actually looks worst than G2's screen indoor and outdoor.

Therefore has a bit weaker CONTRAST, I'm from Korea and I work in LG."
I just want to be clear on your statement. Are you saying that LTPS has weaker contrast and is also a cheaper form of IPS? And, the G3 screen is LTPS?

Samsung copied the fingeprint sensor from Apple? lol. That would mean Apple was the first to implement a fingerprint sensor on a cell phone. Anyone with half a brain knows that's not true. Motorola anyone?
Apple did copy Samsung with the Healthkit. Samsung was the first to include Health apps as part of its default OS.
Anonymous, 06 Jun 2014go and read other critics /techie review for G3. The VERGE & Engadget The Verge (incredibly) gave the LG G3 screen a 10/10 without providing any results of objective screen tests.. Wouldn't that contradict GSMArena's conclusion of poor contrast and average sunlight visibility?

and your real problem is not battery of G3 but no one care about z2 so going in lg,samsung,apple thread and saying now sony improved battery life , now sony improved display .. ha ha first let z2 try to meetr G2's battery life and display quality ... then cmpete with g3

G3's selling points are unique .. powerful speaker, OIS+ camera with laser flash , 5.5" QHD made by LG display,
design, knock-code , improved selfie, ..
so better get a life dude .. if u really want to say , tell sammy copied apple and continuing the copy ..
if iphone6 release with transparent body, s6 will have the same ... lg is a different class thats why qualcomm and google always give lg the preference .

AnonD-255654, 07 Jun 2014LG's copying Samsung finally worked in their favorWhat you meant to say was LG finally not copying Samsung has worked in its favour.
G3 is a first step to the QHD war, and next year's flagship would be matured and satisfying. Generally, G3 is a good phone and worth buying.
HTC M8 has 2 speakers. Lg G3 has one speaker, Lg G3 and one loudspeaker loud enough
