    LG G3, two months on ... | Android Central

    Several good points.
    Everyone give their quick thoughts.

    As for me, no problems that I cannot delete, never use or work around.
    The best phone I have had.

    Performance in games not as amazing as i'd hope, but idk I guess i can live with that. Battery life not as good as my G2. Other than that its an awesome phone!

    I agree with the creaky back cover. Software could use some tweaks. Other than that, it's a solid phone.

    No wireless charging out of the box kinda sucks. Also the fact that there are no legit LG back covers except the circle case and PMA for AT&T. The other 3 carriers should have at least had back doors in stock when it released.

    I don't think you can blame LG for that... The international version has it... So I think it comes down to the carriers choice to omit it and not LG.

    Of course they care. They make money on those Circle cases and Powermats. That's why they blocked it out of the box. They want everyone to buy lots of accessories from them. Same reason they took the earbuds and other accessories that come in the box for the rest of the world out for us. It's all about making as much money off of us as possible.

    Carrier does so care. Particularly AT&T, they had them rip out Qi and make it PMA-compatible. No one uses PMA, no one WOULD use it if AT&T didn't have a vested interest in promoting that over the Qi standard the rest of the world uses.

    I will take the risk of getting shot down, but the G3 is providing me with a great user experience.

    Two months+ on and i still have the same views when I posted my initial impressions.

    The G3 could do with a tidy up sure but with software updates rolling out (unfortunately I decided to root so these are non applicable to me) it will be polished and be that near flawless device. However despite the fact I can't software update, I have nothing that is hindering my enjoyment.

    Hope you all are still enjoying and to the ones that have had or having niggles, hope they get sorted.

    As its fair to say overall Lg done a very decent job with the G3.

    You're right, it was the carriers choice. I just think it sucks not to have it come that way or at least have the doors available at launch.

    As mentioned, my main reason for getting this phone was that I was coming from a Note 3 and it was just a little big.
    Just could not get comfortable with the size, aside from that it was one of the best phones I've ever owned.
    The G3 appeared to be the best lateral move but in a better package (size). Still had the large screen but was manageable in the hands (and pocket).
    That being said, the wow factor of the G3 is all in the size and design for me. Perfect ergonomics, one hand capable and simply a nice looking phone (maybe the best looking phone out there). That's where the wow ends.... The QHD is ahead of it's time and seems to be more gimmick or attention grabber than anything else (bragging rights maybe?). Considering the negatives associated with it, almost seems like a waste to have gone that route when 1080p would have been just fine. As far as fluidity, we've seen there are plenty of conversations regarding this but when there are numerous threads here and other forums regarding "how to eliminate the lag" (example: [MOD] Without ROOT get rid of LAG on G3!!! | LG G3 | XDA Forum)....where there's smoke there's fire.
    I think the QHD screen is the root of any problems that people are having (lag, overheating, etc.). LG could be sitting on top of the heap with the best phone...period...if they would have done one of two things; use a 1080p screen or waited and put in an 805 processor. The QHD is a power hog and some people are paying for that.
    The good news, all of these phones are fast enough...I can live with a millisecond difference.
    The G3 does most everything well, the Note 3 simply does everything well (except it's size and design, just ugly). The trade off is worth it and I am happy with G3.
    It's funny when you look at all of the Flagship phones available right now, each one has there faults.
    Strange they can't come up with one phone that does everything right (but then what we would talk about on the forums....)

    Loving my G3 so far after nearly 4 weeks

    A few niggles I have with it though include:
    - Locked bootloader
    - Often resorts to "No Signal" in my pocket after a while, doesn't establish mobile data connection on reconnect/startup
    - Unreliable wireless charging
    - Kinda mediocre sound quality when taking video
    - Back cover flexes and creaks too much way too much for a flagship device
    LG G3 D855 (UK) - Stock LG 4.4.2
    HTC One M7 (801n) - S-OFF, ViperOne
    Sony Xperia Tablet Z (SGP311) - Rooted 4.4.2

    Same here. I cannot believe I am saying this. Especilly how fast I switch phones. I love this thing. The G3 is clearly the best phone I have every owned.

    I'm not saying I will not switch down the road but I absolutely love this thing. From the looks to the form and function I 've no complaints.

    Very happy with my G3. I was reluctant to upgrade because my DNA was the first phone I have been happy with. I do not like nor will I own a Samsung and regardless of what the apologists and fan bois say the ultra pixel camera isn't that great. Now after 3 weeks with the G3 I like it even more than my DNA. It's everything the DNA was and has a few things I missed that the DNA didn't have. I would recommend this phone in a heartbeat.

    I don't care what kind of phone you have, that's not how I judge someone's worth or intelligence.

    I had DNA which was very underrated. This phone is a nice upgrade with a very similar feel to it.

    The DNA suffered due to being a Verizon exclusive. I think if it had been available on all the major carriers it would have got the props it deserved.
