    Currently a droid maxx user. Looking to upgrade. Love the battery life and loud earpiece on the maxx. Between the 3 phones in the subject line, which would be best? I read the new turbo isn't voice and data and has low earpiece volume. Used a z3 at the store and you can feel your voice vibrating on the back of the phone.

    I have an LG G3 I use on T-mobile and I really like it. Love the size of the display and the QHD screen. I have not noticed any weird vibration while talking on the phone.

    If battery life is most important, you might want to go with the Droid Turbo. The battery life on the G3 is just OK.

    I have not handled a Z3 so I have not opinion on that.

    Honestly i would go with the turbo. The G3 is great but the turbo is honestly better in every way. Unless you like having a bigger screen and laser auto focus. But thats about it.

    And if you don't mind carrying around an ugly phone with a giant chin and thick bezel. This is subjective, of course, but I'd be willing to bet the majority of people would consider the G3 the better looking and feeling device.

    It's either the g3 or the turbo. I had the Maxx now have the G3 it's and nice upgrade. Its funny when Maxx was new low earpiece volume was a complaint about it I'm sure it will be an easy fix in the turbo but if you need data and phone at same time the it's the G3 or wait for turbo update. I've tried turbo in store seems like great device. For once it seems like all the good devices are on Verizon

    I would go between the G3 and Turbo. And this will come down to taste in the phone. I love my G3 but I will admit the Turbo in the ballistic nylon looks nice. Never had a problem with the ear piece in my G3 and battery life is good, But the turbo does have almost 1000mah more than the G3 plus moto optimization on the software. I say you can't go wrong with what you pick, so go play with both and get the one that feels right in the hand. I always say a phone can have the best specs in the world but if you cant stand to hold it or its an eye sore whats the point.

    True, but the G3 is the only one that you can swap the batteries in and out.

    I'd class the G3's battery as average, but I've yet to come a across a phone with a stuck in battery that can out last my spare...

    All great phones. WWill come down to user preference. Make sure you hold each one in your hand to see how they feel. G3 will probably win in that department. And it's still 5.5".

    I'm having the exact same problem....I'm torn between the G3 and the Turbo. I've been rocking the G2 for the last year, and I love the form factor....all screen, no side buttons (love the back buttons). The G2 has had fantastic battery life, so I'm a bit worried the G3 is going to disappoint me in that aspect. The Turbo seems a bit more durable, I think I would really enjoy the Moto apps......and the battery, oh the battery (drools). I'm so confused.....I've liked my G2 so much that the G3 was always a no-brainer.....then the Turbo had to show up and complicate my life. Lol, maybe I'll just wait until the 2015 flagships arrive.

    I came from Droid Maxx to G3. Had to make change as I moved to T-Mobile to save a bundle. But I digress. I loved the Maxx and battery life was concern as I moved to G3. Battery on G3 has been decent and still gets me through a typical day. Have found G3 to more then meet my needs.

    I couldn't agree more. The G2 is a great phone, no need to upgrade it just yet.

    I had the G2, upgraded to the G3 recently. I, like you am interested in that Turbo but am waiting to see some reviews on the camera. The G3 camera is a big upgrade to the G2, which I thought was pretty decent. I guess it depends on what is a priority, Turbo battery is a big selling point. Good luck

    I was deciding between the G3 and Turbo. I loved the G3 and have convinced a few people to purchase it including my Mother who has technophobia and has tiny hands. My Sister retired to convince her off lower end phones. My 2 questions for her hold it to your hand, how does it feel? Now hold it to your ear like you were talking on it and how does it feel? She has a beautiful new G3.
    I visited my family up in Boston area to see not only my Mom with her G3,but my Uncle also who switched from an iPhone to Samsung Galaxy S4 to rocking the G3

    I went with the Turbo yesterday based on battery and 64GB opportunity.
    First thoughts. Wider than expected due to case. Chin and bezel is wasted space. Love the Ballistic Nylon back. Disabled Verizon bloatware. Turbo is fast quick and easy to use. Much thinner than expected. Love the screen. Camera is quick and the pictures I have taken look great.
    Due to carpel tunnel syndrome I am having problem holding the phone without some discomfort.

    I now have wide wanting to upgrade her Droid DNA which happens to be almost the same size and shape of G3 and Turbo. Think I am going to work on G3.

    Ok, I just got done fighting with this decision. G3 was nicer to hold, bigger screen. I must be lucky but my battery is kick A$$. I can beat on it all day and still be 40 - 60 %. Now I don't normally do video or tunes. Watch getting the glass screen protector as it can be a bit of a problem as it desensitizes the screen touch on some phones. Also the video camera is broken but an update will fix that. So after 6 days....I'm happy with the choice. Remember Verizon does have a 14 day return with a 35 dollar restock fee. My son has the turbo and is way happy there so far...

    I'm surprised there's no love for the Z. I don't really like the icons, but it works smoothly, battery is supposed to be better than G3, and the camera is just as good.

    Definitely not as good looking as the G3 though.

    personally I don't like the feel of it in my hand at all. The G3 is one of the most comfortable to hold.

    ...and you know what's funny? I have been to two Verizon stores and talked to what appeared to be capable associates and both I talked to just shook their heads over the 'Z'. Weird cuz Sony is usually good stuff! Both said Samsung was good but advertized its way to the top. The one store the managers personal was a G3 and the other the associate helping me used the G3 so some bias there? Ahh well I like mine!
