    Default LG G3 Why omit these simple things?

    1. Brightness slider
    2. Stock flashlight
    3. Active wallpapers preloaded.
    4. No landscape for home screens
    5. Ability to resize app icons.
    6. More or different transition choices
    7. No password lock on memo/notes

    Anything else? These were nice little touches on the G2. They could have also added a few more qhd demo stuff.

    Agree with the last, I've got two preloaded videos on mine, only about 1½ min each. The night sky one though, very good.

    Some of those things might be because of the qhd display. I also agree that the demo "videos" are weak; of course high quality qhd video takes up tons of space.

    I can't understand why the hell these phones aren't supporting USB 3.0. I transferred a few gigs of video last night and it took like an hour.

    Agreed, the USB 3.0 omission is pretty lame. I am not aware of any reason or limitation they had to not include the newest standard.

    3. Active wallpapers preloaded. Content available.
    4. No landscape for home screens I never though this would be useful, but the option has always been there on my custom ROMs.
    5. Ability to resize app icons. Can't you alter the DPI with a root tool?
    6. More or different transition choices This would be nice.
    7. No password lock on memo/notes Should be there if it isn't.

    Landscape is very useful in car and it's nice on tv.
    I do realize you can download wallpapers and flashlight but I rather have stock for flash light, it's just simple and clean. As far as the rest I don't and should not root for simple things that were included On the g2.

    Could they have been worried about overheating?

    Maybe it's just an issue of time to get the phone released and they know they will be releasing 4.4.3-4.4.4 and will fix those then?

    Valid points. And while there are numerous flashlight apps on Play Store, so many of them are bloatware and request very unusual Permissions for software that is simply turning on an LED or the screen.

    There really is no reason to stay unrooted on a phone like this. Why limit your phone's potential?

    Computer software to access your LG G3 external SD card from your computer. Any tips on how it's done? My phone only shows up on the computer as a camera.

    1) Navigation arrows on the stock keyboard - at least give us the option.
    2) Quick controls on the stock internet browser - this makes surfing the net on the phone a breeze.

    3) The ability to rearrange bookmarks in the stock browser - I hope I may have overlooked something here...

    This post from you just goes to show that you cant please everyone. You can get an app for most and you can root right? Just saying.

    Those features could've stayed or be improved rather than omitted. That's what made the g2 stand out from the rest.

    There is a brightness slider. I just watched a video on it and how to remove/add it. Hopefully this is on all G3s and is not an issue where different parts of the world have different features on their G3.

    Are you overall happy with the G3? I'm thinking about getting one instead of the Note. ☺

    Its not present on the AT&T variant as far as I can tell. I only see a volume slider when media is playing and then it disappears. I have to long press the brightness setting to go to settings for it.

    If they could of done USB 3.0 in micro USB I'd be all for it. The use of 3.0 on Note 3 and S5 is terrible in my mind, takes like 5 attempts to get the Frankenstein end plugged in.

    4. No landscape for home screens - Granted
    5. Ability to resize app icons. - There's two sizes already.
    6. More or different transition choices - Jeez how many do you need?
    7. No password lock on memo/notes - Use Evernote

    A way to change the font size on the notification shade is conspicuously missing.
    They went a little small on the notification LED.
    I sorely miss my 5x1 weather widget from the G2

    I know you can get apps and luanchers to fill some of these needs/wants, but I like it built into the os and I don't want to root to get things that were included in the g2. Why download a 3rd party flashlight with permissions and bloat and ads?

    Its a great phone, battery is just as good as g2 for me. I'm just wondering why take away some of those small things we all loved and got used to on the g2.
