    Default just ditched my gs5 for this LG G3

    Just thought I would say hi! Received my g3 yesterday after getting totally sick of my gs5 all the niggles that were present with that seem fine with this! Only things I preferred with the Samsung were it was light very light and also I preferred the screen this can look a bit washed out.

    Its lovely to see some battery life remaining the Samsung would get so hot and drain so quickly.

    All the best

    Super AMOLED screens are very nice, I must say. I actually prefer a phone with a little weight to it. I have an original PSP and, compared to the PSP slim, it "feels" better in the hands. The G3 is about perfect.

    I came from the Note 3 and the G3 is a far superior device in my opinion!

    I'm debating between the GS5 and the G3 right now. I have about another week to go with my G3 until the trial period ends. So far, I'm very torn. Starting to lean towards the G3 though, the screen size is a big draw for me especially since the G3 isn't that much bigger than the GS5.

    This will be interesting come August 1 when it launches up here.

    I can't wait to compare the Displays because I had the M8 & Z2 and the S5 killed it...almost forgot, IMO. LOL

    Besides the battery, display, performance, etc. What I love about is not only the Size is perfect but it offers both Wireless Charging & it's Waterproof.

    Completely disagree, but that's the thing. You're in 1 of two camps with AMOLED screens. Either you love them or hate them. There's no in-between. I hate them. They hurt my eyes. I love the softer look of the G3.

    Genuinely curious Danny, what were the things that bothered you most about the GS5?

    It's funny how your eyes get used to something and when you switch, your eyes notice it. I have a 100" screen with a 1080p projector and I was completely blown away by the picture. A month later, it didn't seem that big a deal. I have a Samsung 10" note tablet and I love the screen, but it took me a couple of days to adjust my eyes to my G3. Now, I love the more natural looking G3 over a Samsung screen.

    I put mine there as well. Makes the blacks look deeper, IMO.

    Starting to swing back towards keeping the GS5 and returning the G3. I like the G3 a lot but I find it to be a little too big. While watching movies and surfing is great on the larger screen, I find it more difficult to use the G3 with one hand.

    I'm curious where the word "niggles" originated from....

    Glad you love the g3!

    100" @ 1080p? You must love huge pixels. I can't stand 1080p on anything bigger than 24" on 48" or more it has to be 4K otherwise it is Atari all over again.

    The note 3 was a nice device but the lag got worse as time went on and the camera was way too slow had to check photos after taking a shot to make sure it was not blurry. The size of the two devices is day and night with the G3 being the winner.

    I used to have the note 3 before I got the g3. I loved my note and didn't think I would give it up, but the lag started to become really noticeable for me. This phone has all the features that the note has more or less, just without the pen. It will still allow you to draw on pictures and pull up mini apps and the like.

    But I'll probably end up with the note 4 when it comes out.

    Yes very British word that seems to be all over the place now. I use it all the time and my boyfriend hates it. Fits perfectly though. Everything has little niggles about it.

    Same here almost down to the letter except while in certainly curious about the Note 4. It would have to be really something special to switch. For me the G3 is better suited.

    The photos I definitely agree on... As for lag I use Nova and don't see any on my Note 3.

    Hi

    Its pretty British to be honest, personally I use the word a lot to describe my step children!

    Regarding the GS5 the niggles were very tiresome and vexed me.
