Read again, the reasons presented in the comment I replied to, to go for note 4 over G3 (more modern HW) are the same resons to go for G3 over S5 (more modern HW).
Was that really so hard to read for you?
In any case, I'm done feeding you troll :o)
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2014You really need to learn your info before you continually troll these pages.
First off the ... more700 nits is nothing against the sun's powerful 7,000 to 10,000 nits. Hence the S5 is still crap outdoors, just like any other. And again, for most people outdoor in the brightest of sunlight isn't the most common situation to be using the phone.
You also forgot the screen size. The screen is significantly larger, without the phone beeing significantly larger. The S5 has better colors in cinema mode, but this is only good for very low light conditions. Under most normal conditions, the G3 is better, even though it is far from the best display in a flagship phone.

No on a 5 inch 1080p display penile "especially diamond set up" is not a big deal at all. No matter how much you try to convince yourself?
Only people in LA would care about sunlight visibility and S5's is barely different compared to others?????
Is this your first day talking about/using phones?????
Reasons to get note 4 are same to choose G3???? Reasons to get the note 4 are the ways it improves over the S5 in which its already overall better than G3.
Holy buckets you love to miss inform like there is no tomorrow. Wake up and smell reality fanboy.

First off the ... moreyou also need to learn the word "OVERALL" BETTER!lol
by the way the battery life on G3 should be updated soon since the unit they used was optimized for Korean carrier.
they must do battery test for the FINAL UNIT G3 Europe model to be more accurate.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2014No...you just need to learn to understand facts and realityFact and reality is one gets a bigger screen, which is also brighter under normal (indoor and non-direct sunlight when outdoor) conditions.
They are both poorly color calibrated in stock setting.
Almost always when I calibrate someones display to what is accurate, they want something different - to fit their subjective preferance.
Different people have different preferences. Some prefer over/under saturation, and some prefer overly bright, or not at all bright enough picture. Hyper contrast is also a typical choice (especially young ones), despite the fact that in on these incorrect calibatred modes, the viewer will loose out on information in the picture.
I prefer correct calibration, so I can see everything the display is able to produce of the source content in it's most natural way.
AnonD-80553, 19 Jun 2014Read the review. Btw the S5 has a more dim screen than the G3.

First off the S5 can actually reach 700nits in sunlight.
And no. The G3 just has more extra resolution. That's its. The S5's display has WAY more advantages in viewing experience and technology.
Anonymous, 19 Jun 2014No...you just need to learn to understand facts and realitybetter admit that and go to your bed and sleep well...

in benchmark G3 Europe version has only 2G RAM
in design for me G3 is look better than S5
in camera G3 is better in LOW LIGHT or at NIGHT.
why there is no comparison in NIGHT?
Late to the party is typical LG...but they fail to become the best against old phone,if release date is the same time with other flagship may be their phone is the worst!
[deleted post]you must admit the reality lg g3's display is better than samsung s5's display
end of story
[deleted post]G3 is not best of all in these areas, but it is better than S5 overall. This wasn't a dual vs HTC One (M8) or Xperia Z2. If it was, it would have lost in the display department.
mortuus, 19 Jun 2014the G3 display is a joke, its dim, its brightness and sunlight visibility a joke, view angles ... moreWinner: LG G3. Despite its inferior color, contrast, and sunlight legibility, the bigger screen diagonal and the higher resolution still has its say at the end of the day. The QHD resolution may not be readily apparent when it comes to browsing the interface, but it does make a difference when you see the ultra-crisp text in webpages, and especially in watching QHD videos or playing games. As more QHD content becomes available, the advantage of having the G3 display will become even more pronounced.
Sammy fans should understand QHD is still better than FHD in overall Display qiality
mortuus, 19 Jun 2014the G3 display is a joke, its dim, its brightness and sunlight visibility a joke, view angles ... moreSunlight visibility on just about all phones, including samsung's amoled, are a joke. It's been this way for ages, and in fact some older varities were better, but that affected what really matters - how the phone looks in normal lighting.
Btw, most of your info is absolutely incorrect. You see, IPS has very decent viewing angle. Needing more is a bit ludacris as our eyes would struggle due to physics. HTC is actually of those who have usually had the best color and grey scale calibration in the android camp, but LG has almost always done better than samsung. Why? Because samsung has pretty much calibrated their phones to the aRGB color scale while everything it has to reproduce is in sRGB. Hence absolutely everything is over saturated and incorrectly displayed. It not as bad in the best mode (Cinema) in S5 is a lot better then previous models, it still isn't completely accurate, and it is best used in low light conditions. S5's screen is over saturated and the stock mode is horrible.
You might like this, but then you must realise that it is in fact you who prefer a incorrectly calibrated display.
AnonD-255623, 19 Jun 2014Really now. Pentile or RGB isn't an issue at these densities. -_-
No matter what the disadvan... moreActually pentile vs RGB is highly relevant still. You can dream or imagine yourself what you want, but fact is it matters a lot. Fact is that if samsung were able to make a RGB AMOLED at 1080p for a 5.1" screen they probably would, but they're not. In many (in fact probably most) ways I would prefer a 1366*768 RGB matrix over a 1920*1080 pentile matrix. Why? because everything from text to straigt lines looks a lot better with this matrix. But hey, at least samsung has improved on their grey scale calibration. S3 was their worst peak as I can remember.
If you solely work, or reside outdoors (in Los Angeles with bright sun everyday as an example) then get a screen optimized for it. For the majority that is not the case, and most of the time is spent indoors or outside it partly coulded weather.
Also, the slightly difference between the S5 and any other flagship phone outdoors is so small it's hardly worth mentioning. You can see just about enough to read and write and that's it.
The reason you claim one should wait for Note 4 is the same valid reason one should get the G3 over the S5. It's got a bigger screen and more updated internals with goodies such as 3GB RAM. Only difference is the the G3 is actually available.
Playing the waiting game with cellphones is hopeless because every 3 months there will be something better.
The Moto X is a very nice device, although I wish it had a better battery. Not necessarily like the MAXX, but closer than it is. While I'm very happy it has a RGB AMOLED matrix, it would be even better if the sub pixels were more euqally alligned, but I guess it was the best samsung could do for them. Same matrix as in note 2. Luckily they stayed away from the pentile of previous generation.
the G3 display is a joke, its dim, its brightness and sunlight visibility a joke, view angles suck too! i prefer super amoled with lower resolution anyday to the crap display lg puts out.. they have a long way before their displays come even close to what samsung does on their flagships..
Blowntoaster, 19 Jun 2014Sorry GSMArena, but your view on the LG G3 screen being better than the S5's is a bit off.
T... moreRead the review. Btw the S5 has a more dim screen than the G3.
Besides this was a 'vs' and the G3 does have a better screen than the S5, not just because of the resolution.

No matter what the disadvantages of AMOLED be no IPS beats it in contrast and sunlight legibility. Plus Samsung has given the S5 a minimum brightness of 2 nits which is like great while the competition is at 10 for G3 and 16 for M8.
Anyway I'd say that G3 won't be able to sell much for a simple reason. Business strategy. Tactics will never beat strategy. Samsung will release Note 4 and if rumours be true then it'd be 5.7 and the bezels all around will be lesser. So what would you choose a 5.5 qHD with a 5.7 qHD but with a better processor fingerprint sensor and yadiyadiyada...
Personally I'm waiting for the new Moto... nothing beats the ergonomic design of the X and nothing beats the ebony back panel ^_^
