The G3 sounds like a great device on paper, but the overheating issue when the brightness is set to 100% and battery life really disappointed me. Tip 4 seems to be my favorite feature on LG's UI.

And actually it's not LG's most powerful smartphone ever. Snapdragon 801 over 800 is minor, but G2 powers 1080p screen only. Powerful: G2 > G3

Agree. I've seen a G3 couple of days ago and take several minutes to compare it against my G2. My conclusion is G2's display looks sharper and more accurate than the G3's (both are set to 50% brightness

More ppi doesn't mean more accurate or better calibrated screen! This craze for QHD screen over 1080p is pointless! They should instead perfect the screen quality and battery efficiency and perfectly balanced colors!

i like the tip 8, that's what i'm looking for, hope everyone should adapt such feature for big screened devices, so you can text on one hand and still have a solid grip on your device to avoid falling off of your hand or can be easily snatched by snatchers. :) they should really have that abc def keyboard format, also i hope it is re-sizable, so you can set it at the level of your comfort. If that will be a case, i'll be into big screened devices, 5" is too much already for me, don't want using my two hands out in the wilderness, only one hand for my handset, and one to protect my self. :D

Tried one out today and i have to say congratulations to LG for the software, it looks very good and is snappy, but i didn't notice any actual sharpness benefit looking at my M8 side by side with it and i actually preferred the M8's screen. The Galaxy S5 has the best screen of all them three IMO it just looks absolutely stunning.

I just held a G3 earlier and I realized that this device was underrated. I mean the screen is GREAT, cam is good, sound is better than what I heard from guys here.

Some great tips here but most of them are not G3 exclusive. Almost all of those features are available on G2 and G2Pro and even on some mid-range phones. Still it makes me want to install some G3 ROM on my G2 just for those couple of exclusives.

indeed. Tip 23: Make a multi-photo wallpaper - Nokia had that in Symbian 2 yeas ago. Doh! Tip 26: Adjust the Battery saver - Even my ancient Galaxy S3 has that (not as elaborate but still...) Some of these "tips" aren't really tips but things that have been around for awhile (like tip 7 and 12). This is nice for new users on Android but otherwise it's space filler on this site.

My brightness is on 100% all the time. There are no overheating issues. None whatsoever. You really need to own the phone before talking about any features or problems. You cannot believe everything on the internet. That is unless you are dating a French Model.

+1 to all those guys, for clarifying about the overheating issue, which might be the rumour spread by the rival device makers........ Unless and until we dont try the device by ourself, we should not spread BS about them........

Funny how I have no overheating issues, batter life is better than my G2 which had the best batter life of any phone I ever had previously and the call quality is good but I have never had a phone where I thought the call quality sucks. Herp......If you really had one you got a lemon because these are not issue this phone has.
