    I like the G3 but not as much as I thought

    Build ok. Design great. Like the flat icons
    Speaker is fine

    BUT...as I read in articles beforehand, the screen is VERY dim probably because it takes so much to power the 4k. I can deal with it but the battery is not as good as the G2, definitely as good as the St because of it.

    The phone people sometimes have a hard time hearing me.

    But if I were to live with those, THE BIG PROBLEM is the screens tend to flicker going between apps or screens. Would that be what people call lag? It does it more than I like in the native launcher, but a ton more in Nova which normally isn't the case. Apex maybe...not Nova

    Could someone please help. I don't know of anything. Can a chip/phone be bad?

    Phone can definitely be a bad unit. The phone should not flicker when switching screens though.

    Thank you for the quick reply. I suppose flicker is a bit extreme. Maily stops and starts for a 1/10 of a second. Idk not as much as flicker. But not smooth

    The LG keyboard which I want to like is not as smooth as the Google or KK Keyboards.

    How can I tell. Should I do a factory reset

    Can't hurt to try a factory reset. You can always download the sick Google keyboard if you don't like the stock one.

    I may try a reset. I wanna like the keyboard. LOL. I do have the Google one and the KK which is exactly the Google one plus emoticons.

    Do you have the G3. Which launcher?

    If so when you swipe between pages or open apps it is every bit as smooth as the S5 if you ever used that?

    I did read somewhere that because of the high powered screen it lagged occasionally.
