    The last reviews I read, which were yesterday's and today's, it gets warm fairly readily, and hot if you use it for lengthy video shooting, so I guess LG have done all they can. I intend to buy...do you?

    I've had the G3 for a few days now and it does get hot. Yesterday I want to a concert and was taking video and a message came up on the phone that it was getting too hot or something like that. It didn't save my videos.

    I bought my phone last week and so far it's heating up pretty bad.
    The video recording does heat up the phone pretty quick. 3mins in recording and it's around 70C, and 8mins peaks at 85 Celsius. I also tried to lower the brightness all the way down, and it idles around 49-55C. At 100% is around 60-63C. My device lowers the brightness by itself if it's too hot, roughly at 80-85% brightness, and it lags my phone as well. I was thinking to return my device and replace another one if it'll make any difference since some people aren't having much of an issue, unlike me.

    I had no problem with overheating untill i installed instagram and followed a bunch of people there.
    It restarted itself due to overheating several times.

    You could see what drains power in you battery settings?

    The G3 comes out in canada this Friday. I am deciding between the HTC One M8, the S5, and the G3. My preference at the moment is the G3, but I have been hearing a lot about overheating issues. Would this mean I couldn't get an otterbox for it?

    ^^^ Thanks for the link.

    Since my first post in this thread, I have bought the phone, and owned for several weeks. I've had nothing worse than slight warmth. Some say it gets hot when shooting video but I haven't used mine for that so can't comment.

    Wonderful device!
