    Swapped my S3 to get the new G3 in black for a few days now and I am absolutely loving it. I did notice a few things, which were peculiar and wonder if everyone shares the experience or is it just me.
    I. When on speaker during a call, the loudspeaker volume is too low. I have tried checking the voice enhancement feature in call settings and yes of course had the volume full to no effect.
    II. The stock gallery and apps hooks up with only the Verizon cloud and not with other cloud storage. See this article on a different version than that of Verizon. How to hook Dropbox into the LG G3 music and gallery apps | Android Central
    III. The battery life so far is just incredible. Today’s stats : nearly 6 hours since unplugged, Wifi and location reporting along with normal usage and i am at 83% use. It’s been so good consistently, that I even thought maybe it’s not calibrated right so did a hard reset and battery drain cycle to calibrate it.
    IV. On my old S3, my Facebook and Picassa albums were also displayed in my stock gallery app, not any more. Needless to say I never had sync from FB ‘on’ in any of the devices. I am talking here about the FB,Picassa to Gallery on phone and not the other way round.
    Thanks and have a great day!!

    Welcome to Android Central, and glad to hear you're enjoying your G3! To get your Picasa/Google+ photos to sync with the stock Gallery app, go to Settings>Accounts-Google>[your Google account], and make sure Google Photos is checked. Keep in mind that there is a "Google Photos" and a "Google+ Photos"--the former is for syncing with the Gallery app, and the latter is for syncing with the Photos app. Being able to sync Facebook photos with your stock Gallery app is probably dependent on how the phone manufacturer set up its Gallery app. This isn't possible on Nexus devices. It may be that it was a feature specific to Samsung devices, but I'll let someone else with a G3 answer, if possible.

    Thanks for your response and sorry was out the entire weekend so responding now.
    I did check that under the settings and unfortunately only have "Google+ photos" as the option on the g3.
    You are right in that it could be something device specific , maybe anymore g3 users can attest to it.
    Also, still having trouble with the loudspeaker on the call.
    Maybe someone can attest to that as well.

    Depending on the device, the account sync option for the stock Gallery app might be called "Picasa" or "Gallery," so look for those as well.
