    Default Note 3 or Lgg2. . . I know not again

    Hi
    I am a newbie and have narrowed my next phone to either the Note3 or the LGG2. I know all the pros and cons for each, have studied this for two months, but I am still undecided. Each time I think I have reached a decision, I will read or see something that makes me unsure. For example, I was just about to decide for the LG but then I keep hearing about the screen scrolling issues about the phone. Then when I was sure I was going to get the Note 3, I read about the Wi-Fi, charging, etc., issues. I realize that each phone will have issues, I m just trying to figure out which one may have less and will hold up best since I have to live with it for two years. Anyone willing to add some more thoughts on one phone over the other? I have posted this here and also on the Lg page of the forum. I need to decide by the end of December.
    Thanks so much

    Since you're posting this question in a note 3 thread I'm guessing that you've already decided on the note 3 and just want some positive reinforcement....

    I had a Note 3 for one week, returned and got the G2. IMO the G2 is a better device. The Note is very nice and if it were not for the G2 it would be my current phone. I prefer the buttonless experience of the G2 to that old school physical home button on the Note 3.

    I prefer the Note 3. The screen was a big killer on the G2 for me. Not nearly as bright as the Note three. Plus I didn't like the overall look LG gave the G2. I know you can customize the phone though but just stock I prefer the Note 3 over the G2. Plus with the extra screen size and the S pen you cannot go wrong.

    all phones have issues go to the LG forum and I'm sure you'll see someone post about wifi issues or GPS E.T.C. my suggestion is try one of the phones for a few days most carriers give you 14 day return window.It's a matter of what is best for you .

    After much research I was going to pull the trigger on the Note 3. However at the eleventh hour I went with the G2....The deciding factor came down to me wanting to use my device more less one handed and I did not care for having a stylus. I am a Samsung fan and loved my S3..but this go around the G2 fit my situation more. They are both top notch device's and the decision will boil down to how you use your phone and which one fits best into your lifestyle. I do not think you can make a bad decision when it comes to these devices.

    Best of luck with your decision.

    If you want the biggest and baddest go with the Note 3. If you want the sliQest go with the G2. I've had both and chose the G2 and other tablets. If you're only looking to have one device I'd recommend the Note.

    t love the G2 but being anal I just couldn't get over the poor UI even with Nova Launcher Prime, HD Widgets, etc. I even bought Icon packs (Nox, Kxnt, etc.) from the Play Store and still the LG's UI bothered me.

    I love the Size, 5.2" is perfect, the Thin Bezel is amazing. Placing the Power & Volume Rockers at the back was a nice change and outstanding Battery Life, even though it's smaller than the Note 3 I think Samsung's Bloatware/TouchWiz just drains it much faster. Don't get me wrong I'm still getting 14 hours.

    Too bad I'm not into Rooting, lazy and honestly looks complicated. :o I would've kept the G2 and run Vanilla (if it's available). or even better a Google Edition.

    Missed that. In that case I'm game....The note 3 is the choice here. The build quality is excellent and I rather enjoy the premium feel of the faux leather back.

    Samsung I feel has better hw and sw. The note with the pen has more options and abilities. The button on the g2 is cool but I knew I'd use the pen more so I went with the note.

    The g2 is really not that cool. It was when they were free on contract on Verizon but the software is awful and spec wise it doesn't really best the note in any aspect. Not to mention the rear button is a terrible idea. Every time I pressed it, it felt like I was going to drop the phone

    Samsung fanboys apparently don't possess any attention to detail. If they did they would realize that the physical home button on their Note 3 looks like it was designed by a five year old. The home button on my Galaxy 4.2 Player is much better than the wobbly, loose button on a Note 3. And that cheap plastic chrome trim!!! That is made from the same plastic that cheap toys are made from. The screen and back cover (black model) of the Note 3 are superb but that's it. The rest of the device is CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP!!!

    Well, that's certainly one perspective. When you had the G2 what did you dislike most?

    I had a G2 from AT&T for about five days I purchased without a contract the screen is excellent the button placement took some getting use to, great camera and great overall speed . I hated the UI but any custom launcher can make a difference. My big problem was inconscient battery performance. I complained to AT&T and got approved for early upgrade and stepped into a Note 3. Love the N3, size isn't an issue for me but I will say it's definitely a coat pocket phone buy no means should it be slipped into a suit pants pocket .lol I say Great phone this is coming from a reformed Samsung hater .

    For me, I had no other choice:
    S-Pen (must have for me)
    IR blaster (very useful)
    Screen size

    You have to find your must have item. The S-Pen requirement made my choice simple.

    Had the LG first (and not my first LG phone) just felt cheap and rushed compared to the N3. But my biggest complaint with LG is the all but non existent updates. And I see no reason to believe it would have been any different with the G2. And the back button placement just baffles me. Not in a good way. So I swapped to the N3. And having never had a Note phone before, the overall size was a little daunting for the first few days. I have exceptionally large hands, just not long fingers. But now 1 week in its like an old friend. And I never really thought I'd have much use for the stylus. . Boy was I wrong. I use it several times per day. It really is the difference maker I never thought it would be. . That's my 0.02 on the matter.

    Killin it in on my Note 3.
    I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

    Time to die.

    The g2 is a great device. I almost kept it until I was able to really try the gn3. I avoided the gn3 due to the size but it is just too good of a device to pass up. Either way you have a very good device. Given the popularity of Samsung I think that the longevity of the gn3 will be better than the g2 as far as updates are concerned but lg may prove me wrong. Take advantage of the trial period hands on is the only way to really see what will work best for you.

    I left out the obvious in my last post but I decided it needed to be there.
    Removable/swappable battery.
    Micro SD card.

    I pray that Samsung keeps the S-pen, swappable battery and SD card memory. That will keep me with the note series forever.
