    Default HTC one m8 or Galaxy Note 3

    I didn't know which forum to post this in, but basically what the title says. My girlfriend has the Note 3 & she likes my M8 & I was wondering if it'll be worth the swap or not spec wise.

    They are both great phones, but it depends on your needs. Spec wise, both are top notch.

    Basically no lag, haven't experienced any what's so ever w the M8. I've heard the Galaxies lag bc of touchwiz

    Slight lag yes. You can disable animations in developer menu to help. Since your gf has the phone why not play with it a bit before deciding?

    The Note 3 does lag, as bad as any other touchwiz device. The M8 is better though I feel that holding out for the G3 is the best option unless you can get your hands on a Oneplus One

    I've messed w hers several times, I'm speaking as a daily driver. I feel using it for an hour won't compare to what it'll be like from a month now. She says it's good, but she's not really tech Davy, so I'm asking here bc I figured I can get a better response here.

    LG has reputably solid software and even if you disagree with their modifications they often make it extremely easy to root.
