    Thanks. Yeah i have an htc one m7 which was my first android phone but just cant get use to it being that the screen doesnt awake with incoming texts,mail etc. Just a light like most android phones. My contract is almost up so im seeking a new phone. I dont want to go back to apple ios cause of how closed in it is as a ecosystem an hate using itunes to sync.

    Bummer...

    Ok 2nd question to those with the G3 already. I havent seen a complete video or demo of the camera software. Are you all able to edit pics with basic built in software like the htc one m7 or galaxy phones to add filters,crop,rotate an more??

    Screen wakes if you're using the stock messaging app. Doesn't for hangouts. Also the stock messaging app has a really nice notification system while your screen is already on (think Android L)

    Sweet! Yeah if i get it i'll just be using the stock messaging app. But thats good news to my ears to know the screen wakes up when i receive a message. Now does that only happen with stock messaging text app and not with face,email etc. or it will still wake up as well?

    Are there different colors of LED notification for different things? For example, on my S3 it is blue for texts but green for Facebook, etc.

    I don't think you can change the colour of the LED notification as a stock option.

    I can't answer if the screen wakes for other functions as it's not something I've really noticed.

    The quick reply is a decent thought out function but it winds me up that the character counter masks what you're typing, it did the same on the G2 as well...I'm really surprised no-one at LG thought it didn't look good, I therefore have that switched off

    Light flow works great with the G3 so that you can have custom colors for your different notifications.

    If you are worried about missing calls or messages the G Flex is amazing. Giant rear notification light has saved my bacon several times.

    I have my screen locked with the tap code. When I have a text it shows but I have to put in the code and then the messaging app opens

    Well im back with some more questions lol

    Does the G3 have a screenshot toggle?
    Does it charge slow like the htc one m7 which takes forever?
    Is it worth upgrading to from the m7?

    Yes to all three. Power + VolDn should be the screenshot key.

    I know you don't like this answer but Android phones (and I don't expect the G3 to be any different) don't turn on the screen when you receive a text, etc. That is what the notification light is for - to let you know that something has come in and in fact you can program different colors for different kinds of notifications (SMS, Voice Mail, E-Mail, etc). If your screen turned on for every notification your battery would be gone in a couple of hours.

    Yeah, screen turns on on the stock messaging app, it helps the battery to use hangouts!

    My G3's screen does not turn on when I get a text message. I do miss that from my S3 but understand the hit on battery life it could take to turn on the screen over and over. The notification light on the G3 is so much smaller and slower that I think I may miss it if I have my sound off.

    I installed SMS popup app (it's free) and then tweaked the settings of both
    default message app settings
    as follows to get the behavior I wanted.

    I think that you could get any of the behaviors that everyone is asking
    for through the combination of settings.

    Basically you have to turn off the popup for text message in the default app
    since SMS will also popup, so you have 2 popups happening. So just turn
    off the default message app popups.

    The you can control the screen coming on or not for sms arriving through
    SMS popup.
