God I hate the g3 the few times I played with it in the store. Seriously if they have waited for the snapdragon 805 cpu it would of been great ImoI to was in the same boat as op, I went in and played with them at ATT, walked out with a g3. For me it was the one I was destined to be with.....
I used the G3 heavily for months in alI types of environments. Liked it alot but switched it out for the note 4 primarily for the much better screen (my opinion of course).
The LG low weight is a plus and physically it is an excellent size BUT the Note 4 screen is over the top!! Won me over and I don't regret the decision after 3 weeks.
The hardware while I never mind it and preferred over metal or glass I could see why people hated it and the shiny plastic Was sort of annoying and the soft touch on the S5, note 3 and 4 are pretty good the metal frame is pretty good unless you live somewhere freezing all year round lolI would strike out the G3 from that comparison as it has older hardware. The moto x will give you a great experience with near stock android.
If you care about viewing media and photography, the Note will be your best choice.
I'll tell you that I have generally been anti-samsung in the past due to the quality of their hardware. Not anymore. I am now holding a note 4. It is like a different company made it.
The moto x is a great device. That's a hard choice between the two, but the note will give you more features and functionality.

I was looking for a smaller phone than my G2 that met an untimely end when I dropped it on concrete and it landed on the corner just right and destroyed the screen. It had been almost indestructible, but having small hands and determined to get a real case I wanted a smaller phone and decided on the MOTOX I was disappointed. Three of my last four phones were Motorola. So it was a brand I thought I knew, the hardware seemed sturdy enough, but it uses, Google's "Now" launcher. That is one launcher that I hate. I can't tell you why and you may like it. But it drives me nuts, so I traded it on a Kyoceria DuraForce of all things. But its a so called rugged phone, no need to buy a case. Time will tell just how rugged. At least it's not Google Now.
