    I'm buying it in August 1 and will be comparing it.

    So far the S5 has taken down the nexus 5, hTc One M8 and Sony XPERIA Z2.

    Right now the size, will determine it but doesn't mean that I will sell the S5 even if I end up loving the G3.

    I was thinking about picking it up, but after reading some reviews, I'm going to hang back for a bit.

    Using the S5 and M8 right now.

    I'll stay with the S5 because of the camera. The camera is the best one at the moment bar none. Also I have invested alot of time getting the S5 to do what I want. That being said I would like to see each side by side for a comparison.

    I think the G3 is one of the best phones out right now but would I switch???

    Probably not.

    If you have the S5 or M8 it's a lateral move. Yes I think the G3 is better but marginally.

    Just my 02$

    Na. looks like an awesome phone. Might be even slightly better than s5, but not enough for me to switch.

    I've just jumped off that ship, I only lasted a day though lol

    I don't think I ever really wanted the G3. When I went to the store I wasn't even intending on upgrading but somehow the sales lady manged to get me to upgrade and we discussed the G3 as I already had the note 3. However after a few hours I just wasn't feeling the G3. Perhaps it's because I've used Samsung devices for the past 2.5 years. I returned it and swapped it for the S5 and I'm really glad I did.

    The LG G3 is a nice phone, it just didn't offer me anything more than I had with my note 3. I didn't really see the difference with the 2K screen (actually think the S5 has a better screen). I got bored of knock on after a few hours. Besides those two features the LG didn't have much more going for it imo.

    I suppose the S5's gimmicks appeal to me lol

    I like the fingerprint scanner and heart rate monitor. The Camera is awesome. I also like the new colours and the download booster and ultra power saving mode.

    I also like to buy accessories for my phone and they were pretty scarce for the LG G3, but they are plentiful for the S5.

    Also in the few hours I used the LG I ran into quite a few App incompatibility issues.

    I also like the idea of there being a Samsung store close to where I live that I can just pop into if I need to.

    I also plan on getting a Samsung tablet soon and if I get a smart watch it will be one of the gear/gear fit ones not an Android wear one.

    So all in all Samsung made a compelling case for me to stay with them and LG didn't have much to offer me.

    Everyone's different. But for me the qhd screen of the g3 just wasn't and upgrade from my s5. As a matter of fact I think my s5 screen is much better.

    And also I'm a heavy user. My s5 will last me about 18 hrs and 5 hours or more of screen on time. The g3 in my opinion just wasn't up to snuff for a heavy user. But on the other hand some people report great battery life. I just wasn't one of them.

    Lol ditto, but I exchanged for an active. G3 is the poster child for "specs aren't everything"

    Lackluster ui that lags with its 3gb ram, worse screen on every way possible other than resolution, no ip67 that I like and worse battery.

    I vote 'no' as well.

    LG always just seems to be a Samsung copy-cat and just one step behind. Additionally, LG's proprietary software/skins are awful (ex. Have you ever heard their god-awful alarm ring tones?)

    Furthermore, by going to LG, you lose ip67 and smart watch (I use the Gear Fit and like how light it is) compatability.

    I've just sold my G3 in favor of the S5. The S5 just feels better in hand for me.

    Nope. I really like the S5. If I were to switch to another Android right now it'd probably be the Note 4 when it comes out. I tend to stay with one device for at least one year (before my S5, I was using an iPhone 4!) though.
