    Has anyone used both? If so which one performs better? Any reason for picking one over the other when using both?

    i played with both and i would get the Note 3 assuming the size is not too big for you. i prefer the larger Note 3 display which also looked crisper and brighter than the LG - the Note 3 was so thin and light too. also - even though i hate all skins and bloatware - Touchwiz is less-evil than LG's skin IMO. lastly, you get the S-Pen with the Note 3 which could come in handy. BUT - the Nexus 5 should be here soon - you might want to wait and see what it offers and to which carriers. Nexus 5 is my choice.

    whatever you pick - enjoy!

    I'm using the G2 now and plan on getting the Note 3. Having sold my note 2 already this is my loaner phone. I love it. The size and one hand use is awesome and I dont care what anyone says, the screen on the G2, is far superior to the note 3. I still plan on getting the note 3, ONLY if Root can be achieved on the Verizon version, otherwise I'm sticking to the G2.

    Why do you say the screen is better on the G2? I have used them both side by side and couldn't come to that conclusion I find them to be damn near on par with each other, and once the Note 3 is in Movie Mode i find it to be better.

    Sooks I just feel its sharper and clearer. I also took the note outside and had more trouble seeing it than on the G2 which is almost perfect in direct sunlight.

    I do agree it is sharper which makes sense as it is full RGB and has more PPI. But color wise the note 3 kills it. Also for outdoor viewing the Note 3 has been getting crazy good reviews for outdoor viewing.

    Would be great to have a side by side pic of the two both on either auto or highest brightness.

    Thanks!

    You sound like me. I have the LG G2 right now to. The note 3 will be a clear winner in my opinion as far as features and development, but the screen on this thing. The screen was love at first sight and I will truly miss it. My time watching it has been nothing but pleasant

    I'm in the same boat.... I took a bunch of pictures with my Note 3 and I think the camera on the LG G2 is a lot better also.

    The G2 was supposed to be a temp thing until the Note 3 shipped, never thought I'd like a LG phone as much as I like this guy.

    How does video look in comparison?

    There the Note 3 kills the G2 in my opinion... The G2 even has problems focusing sometimes during video.

    I rarely take video though, so the camera shots are more important to me.

    EDIT: I have to add a disclaimer; I am a point and shoot picture taker and usually use auto.

    EDIT 2: Another thing I really like about the G2... FIVE icons on the dang home screen. I know it's minor, and can be fixed with a different launcher or rooting, but 4x4 icons on the Note 3 by default on a screen of that resolution looks silly to me.

    I looked at the G2 in the TMo store. IMO the screen appeared to be extremely washed out compared to the Note 3. I guess I've been staring at Samsung's over-saturated screens for too long (S3, Note 2, Note 8, Note 10.1). I prefer the Note 3's screen.

    I would agree the G2 screen is a bit better...LCD screens are just more responsive and crisp... And I've had mostly led screens as of late ... The G2 screen is better to me also...I'm currently on an HTC one and again..I'm enjoyingthe feel of LCD compared to led .... And this is a surprise because I've always loved Samsung amoled screens ...
