    Have I made the right decision? I think so. It feels great in one hand and also has a QHD screen.

    How do you find that the display colours of the Sammy and the G3 compare?

    I had my GS5 for about 3 months before changing to my G3. I honestly think both phones are so awesome. They both have their positives and negatives. I love the camera focusing system and OIS on the G3 but liked the sharpness of the S5 more. The minimalistic camera skin is great on the G3 but I wouldn't mind having a little more control of ISO. Screen wise I did enjoy the saturated almost non realistic colors on my s5 but the G3 2k is amazing, Hands down. Touchwiz wasn't all bad but the G3 is minimal and I like that a lot. I do wish there was an easy way to force stop apps easier other then going into settings. The S5 had this and I loved it. Especially for killing off apps that don't want to die like soundcloud and Sirius xm. One things for sure. Without any case on this G3 feels about 100 times better in the hand. That curved back makes all the difference.

    The curved back feels much better than the S5, that's for sure. But some people like saturated SAMOLED screens. Both good phones, though.

    I wonder if Samsung is using the same panel tech for both phones and TVs?! My brother just bought a Samsung 65" UHD TV (UN65HU8550FXZA) recently at BB. I went to BB with him to pick up an optical cable the other day and checked out the new LG UHD 65" (65UB9500) which has the same tech (IPS) our G3 has and I honestly think the Sammy display looked better. The LG display is nice at 240hz but the Samsung at 120hz looks spectacular! I might go back and take more looks and see if the LG is worth getting for myself since its less expensive then the Sammy panel. Sorry for going off topic there, lol!

    Root and disable all the bloat.
    You have made the correct decision.

    Yeah, it really is personal preference. I came from a Moto RAZR Maxx with Super AMOLED display and noticed the difference immediately. But to me the difference wasn't "OMG washed out dim screen!" like many on here. It was more like a refreshing, professional "real" looking screen. Not sure how to describe that, but personal preference is always difficult to get across.

    I would have too disagree with rooting. Mine had a serious delay after rooting. I had to uninstall xposed and tweaksbox too get it to go away. I think it is still there some.

    Rooting isn't the same as installing root apps. Rooting lets you remove bloatware (among other things). It lets you install exposed and other root apps, but doesn't force you to.

    Laughing just a little about this question in this forum. Of course the people in the G3 forum are going to tell you it was the right decision? Ask in the 5 forum you might get a different answer.

    Don't get me wrong, it's a fine phone. So is the S5. Each has certain pluses and minuses. But the question is kind of like going to a Ford dealer and asking if you should trade in your Camaro on a Mustang. Or going to a Chevy dealer and asking the opposite.

    If you like the G3 more than the S5, then yes you made the right decision.

    Don't need to ask people on the forums for confirmation.

    Agreed because I didn't realize what forum I was in, and these comments had me thinking about trading in my S5 before it was too late, until I read this. lol

    I think for most people you can't go wrong with either phone. The big advantage of the s5 is water resistance. I'm agnostic when it comes to phones. I went from HTC to Samsung to my first LG the G3. It is one of the best electronic devices of any kind that I have ever owned!
    If you like how it feels in your hand and the screen compared to the S5 - great! Good luck with your G3.
