    Default Just used LG G3 in store

    Just used LG G3 in store and I will say the design of the G3 is gorgeous and for me marginally less nice than the HTC M8 only due to materials. The screen looked no better than the 1080 screens and my friend with me who knows nothing about phones immediately was wowed by the HTC M8 screen more so than the G3. The phone feels great in the hand it's astonishing how good it feels, BUT at 5.5 inches it's unusable with one hand, I couldn't reach the home button or top of the phone without major shifting of the device, That's a killer for me with the Moto X2 and moto 360 around the corner. I also love window phone, sorry, but I do.

    I just think the G3 with a 5 inch display 1080 with the same design would have been a mainstream hit. A one handed 5 inch device. Disappointed, left store with my Nokia Lumia 920 happy. I may still get it if someone finds a back cover that makes QI wireless works on the at&t device.

    Also the LG G Watch was less ugly than I expected, but I can't wear that thing to work over my Swiss watch options and not feel unprofessional.

    I have several swiss watches too but have no issues wearing my pebble. I used to think I needed an expensive watch to make a statement...now I just want my texts etc on my watch so I can be sly in my meetings without looking at my phone! lol!

    Waiting to see how the moto 360 turns out.

    I think the pebble is more subtle and elegant than the LG G watch, not sure if you've seen it, but it's pretty bland and ugly. I had the Pebble Steel for a while and wore it everyday to work in formal attire, it was great, and looked great as well. But using windows phone now and its not compatible so had to sell it instead of sitting there useless.

    I agree tho I don't care about having an expensive watch, as long as it looks nice I'm happy. Moto 360 for example is perfect.

    I wanted to like the LG G3 more just don't think I can rationalize 5.5 inches just because every phone is that size. I'm willing to wait for moto x2 and hope they are smart to follow their model of normal. Was just curious if I was only one who didn't like the size and the main reason didn't upgrade. Love the entire phone except fact id hate holding it.
