    Default Who's Selling their M8 for a G3?

    So am I the only one waiting impatiently on the G3? As I posted in another thread, the M8 was a step back for me in every aspect of the word.

    Smaller screen
    Smaller camera
    Larger case

    The day the G3 launches I'll have my M8 up on Swappa and I'll be standing in front of my local VZW store waiting on them to open.

    Now you may begin the bashing. Make them count!

    No bashing from me its your money so your choice but for me i would never buy a Network branded phone and i most certainly won't be swapping my M8 for any other already released or coming soon device either. I'm far from being a HTC fan boy as this is actually my first HTC device but a little after 2 months on and my M8 does all i want and need better than i expected it to and that includes the Camera which is my least used and least important feature on any of my phones.

    Hmm LG G3? I just bought the M8, not selling it any time soon. I got it for a good price. But as soon as Quicken makes a WP app, I am putting my M8 up for sale. And will be glad to go back to my Nokia 1520...

    Nope. Very happy with my M8. Once I decide to give up this phone, It will be for something far more exciting than an LG phone. lol

    No disrespect , it's no doubt a great phone. But I would seriously miss my HTC.

    If Android 5.0 drops during IO I'm definitely not buying a phone that won't be getting it for a while. I can convert the m8 to gpe.

    Technically if you're willing to root to do that you could do it on another phone .

    Just got my M8 and Im loving it. G3 does look like a really nice phone, but its pushing my threshold for screensize/phone size. Im also not a fan of their back button design or their software. I just like HTCs build quality and software too much. Regardless, I have nothing against the G3 or LG in general. Very good looking phone, just not for me though.

    Ditto.

    Also, I have a feeling that phone is gonna have lag regardless of the specs. And I have not seen a UI better than Sense yet. IMO as always..

    Everything I love about the M8 makes me hate the G3. Looks like a nice device, but my M8 is really perfect for me, and the G3 can take a long walk off a short pier as far as I'm concerned

    I admit, I feel the same the rest of you about my M8 but I'm a little surprised there aren't more people looking to grab the G3.

    Aside from the hype, what does the G3 really offer? I look at the features of a phone that I will use, and judge the phone by how often I will use those features. I don't use the camera much (though I do like the camera on the M8), and I've never had lag issues, and my phone is perfectly capable of downloading things at high speeds both over wifi and 4G signals...what am I missing from this device that the G3 offers? A plastic, cheap-feeling body? A slightly-higher CPU (with less-efficient UI)? Better battery life that I don't need because my M8 makes it through the day with at least 40% left after 15 hours?

    Oh, I agree. Not to mention that the ability to convert the M8 into a GPE is a HUGE bonus for me as I love the stock android experience/speedy updates.
    My surprised is based on the comments and general excitement around the G3 that I have witnessed in various forums.

    No way, I am far too happy with my M8. I really like Sense 6 and its simplicity along with the premium build quality. This phone is just top notch. I can't even begin to consider another phone right now. lol

    I'm in the same boat as most of you, my M8 has barely left my hands since I bought it, which was the day after it was announced. I love everything about this phone. And LG's software is nowhere near as good as Sense 6. Well based off of what I've seen on the G2 and the videos for the G3. I probably won't be getting a new phone until the next HTC One line up comes out.

    At most I'll get a G3 as a second phone because why not. I'm too in love with my M8 to sell it.
    I'm gonna get flak but I'd rather have Sense over Stock Android for my daily driver.

    I came from the G2 to the M8 and I'll never go back to another LG product again. They feel cheaper than Samsung, not the slightest bit dev friendly, poor support as far as updates are concerned and too much bloat.

    The M8 felt awesome in my hand the first time I picked it up, I don't feel like I'm going to break it unlike the LG. Also the first phone I haven't felt the need to root.

    Nope, my m8 will only be replaced by an M9. Unless a device comes out that does holographic communication, then I'm all over it. :P

    The people most enamored of what the G3 can offer are already watching the G3 forums and ignoring their current phone's discussion area. Also as someone who honestly cannot tolerate the M8 I have noticed that when someone is grabbed by it they love the phone unconditionally and will sit thru RMAs for the joy of being reunited again. I would expect more converts away from Sammy if anything.

    Yep, that would be me. Sent both my M7 and M8 in for issues and was happy to get them back in perfect working order.

    Well, there's only 2 crazies here, huh? I'm not really surprised. There is no lag on the M8 and why should there be? It's still a top phone, I'm just not enamored with it and I miss my G2.

    Just wondering, what is so intolerable about the m8?

    Never been a big Sense fan for one, I need the extra camera pixels, Dot Case is awful and non-Dot cases scratch the metal anyways. Tower hopping bugs especially with Sprint. The modestly high number of build quality RMAs whereas I cannot afford to be phoneless.

    In the end I got a Flex and am rocking it caseless. The G3 even does not much appeal to me, I am waiting on Flex 2 news...
