    Default Don't Get Me Wrong, I Really Love My S5 But That G3 Looks Like A Killer Phone

    Right now if I were choosing for the first time and both were available for the same price I think I'd opt for the G3. I like the 5.5" screen in a form factor essentially the same as the S5. The camera is looking to be just about the equal to the S5 in good light and markedly better in low light and it has OIS. Throw in a removable battery and reportedly great battery life and a stripped down closer-to-pure-android OS and I think they have a real winner on their hands. While it's not real metal, it looks damn good too. And it has a dual LED flash that may make it less likely to destroy flash images as the S5 seems to do when the flash is in use.

    If you want a bigger screen get G3. S5 offers more functionality (Finger print scanner, IP67, UPS, heart rate monitor) over G3. Some of these functionality is very useful me. Check for G3 reviews. Most of them skeptical about usefulness of QHD screen. G3 screen quality (brightness, black levels) suppose to be lower than even G2 screen. Batery life is pretty same except that, G3 is very dim compared to S5 at 50% brightness. Flash and low light photos might be better on G3. Relatively they are still pretty bad. I consider my on board dedicated camera flash itself is bad. It is still miles better than flash on these phones. That being said, all these phones are very good. You just need to get one fits your needs.

    Here is a side by side comparison. I think I too would be a little torn between the 2. I would certainly choose the G3 over the HTC One (M8)

    I want to pick up the g3 but with the screen resolution being that high, I want to see how the processors handles it and with high graphics game. I think I have come to realize s5 or n3 are the only choices I have right now.

    I've read or seen multiple reviews, and apart from getting noticeably warmer, there were no performance pits that were mentioned.

    Some test charts are given in this review. Not sure how reliable are these guys. I guess, we have to wait for anandtech review.

    Last year both the S4 and G2 were the worst especially when compared to hTc's One M7, it was IMO the best release last year.

    This year it's complete turned around with Samsung, the S5 is the one to beat.

    If LG made changes like Samsung did I wouldn't be surprised if it knocks the S5 down.
