    I owned several samsung devices, and they were always OK to me. But last year I bought a g3 and I LOVED IT. The bezels/size, the clarity of the screen, it's just a great phone. BUT samsung really changed the game with the new galaxy series, the only complaint of course it not having expandable storage but the design and specs are seemingly overpowering the g4 design and specs (to me). The s6 is a beautiful phone and has brought equal or more powerful screen resolution and processing power to the g4. I have also read that the g4 is thicker and heavier than the g3, whereas the s6 is thinner and lighter while only being .4 inches smaller. Tell me what you believe is the best choice. is the s6 the right choice, or is sticking to LG the better option. My update is in July so I have some time. Please write pros/cons to your experiences with both. Whether you are a developer or a user. Thanks!

    I use a S6 for personal and for work I have an LG G3. While the G3 is a very nice phone, it cannot compare to my S6 in terms of camera, screen and single hand usability. If it was me and I had no dependence on the SD card coming from a G3, I'd say the S6 was a positive move. In terms of battery life I would say they're practically on par, G3 ever so slightly a little better buy I have a lot of features off I've got on my S6.

    thanks for your reply! yeah the g4 is generally the same the g3 (mins the added perks) hearing your positive experience with the s6 is great how much memory did you buy as I know its not expandable. I think 64 gb should be enough..

    I got the 32GB version but would recommend the 64GB minimum.

    I love my S6, but if you really like your G3 and in the past had a so-so experience with Samsung devices id still suggest testing both out to see which suits your needs. You may find the screen too small on the S6, or not prefer the TW launcher...they are both great phones and if it were me id being doing some deep research before jumping in.

    If you like a slightly smaller form factor, better camera and battery life is not as important than the S6 could be great. Going to use my S6 on the weekends when battery life is not as critical and need a good camera! I had a G3 for a while and like the S6 better. I got the 64 GB model and think it is a great device.

    Go with s6 I also came from the G3.And to me it's night and day.S6 Has a better camera IMO a brighter screen.The design alone is enough to blow you away.I love the feel of the phone also IMO it's easier to view in sunlight.I purchased the 64GB S6.To be honest I don't miss my G3 one bit.Battery life is about the same to me.Some people complain about the S6 battey life.But to be honest I don't have a issue.

    Go to the store and check them both out. The G4 is much nicer than the G3. Gets my vote over the S6 for sure.

    awesome! and what colors did you guys go with? I have decided to not go with the edge as I don't like how it feels in hand but I am between white or gold, I will use a glass screen protector so I have heard that the gold one reflects in the sun and is almost blinding and also for case purposes I think the white is the better choice but the gold is so appealing, so yea share your opinions on colors too, I value what everyone has to say

    I have not had any problems with sun glare outdoors with my gold S6. This is the phone you want, if you need to see your screen outdoors.

    Can you guys upload some pics of your gold s6 and white s6. The gold is soooo nice I just am unsure how it I'll look with colored cases and I am constantly changing my case. White is safe and still beautiful looking. Ahhhhh such a hard choice lol

    I took a long walk on the Avenue today while playing with my phone. I got 3 complements asking what blue phone I had. The black sapphire is the color to get. It's amazing, and I agree with you.

    White and gold is nice, but I'm telling you, the black sapphire is the way to go.

    Ya I love this about the black...it changes but very drastically in different shades. It goes from dark black, to shadow/smokey black to almost cyan blue...and the range between those can vary too. I get a lot of compliments about it, it's a really cool detail that myself and others gawking appreciate

    Well I am kind of asking that. Asking if jumping from my g3 and not getting the g4 to the s6 is the best desicion

    Honestly I've had the s6 edge for a while now but just a few nights ago switched back to my G3 to compare. Initially I loaded Jasmine Rom on the G3 and found that stock experience to be on par with or faster than my s6 edge. Then I loaded cm12.1 onto the G3 and it's night and day faster than the s6 edge so far, as far as opening/running apps and so on. But that's to be expected I suppose, considering how light cm is.

    However, I miss the hell out of the s6 camera! And the speed of loading images in the gallery and transferring files to different folders, and that sort of thing, is better on the s6. G3 is still fast enough in that regard, but not as fast as the s6. Also, the s6 in direct sunlight is FAR superior to the G3! Not even close.

    All things considered, I believe I'm going to sell the s6 edge (64 gb Verizon black sapphire, if anyone's interested ;-)) along with my 5 cases, and stick with the G3 for a bit longer. At this point, it doesn't makes sense to keep the s6 edge when my G3 performs the way it does. YMMV. Just sharing my experience. Not worth the price tag, in my opinion.
