Fall releases are always the ones to wait for. People always jump the gun every Spring

Well right now I'm rolling with the Moto E, which is a cute transition phone, but as a tech head I can't wait much longer before getting a true beast :)

Wait for the Snapdragon 810 - I doubt it will get any better than that for at least a year and its coming Q1 2015

Why would this make sense at all... July? The actual G3 itself isn't even up for sale yet, so screw korea who cares? Means US / anyone else won't have it

Multiple different high-end LG/Galaxy/Xperia/HTC One handsets in a single year, better variants of the same exact flagship coming out just months just after the original is one of the reasons Apple and their iPhone get their customer satisfactory rating. That's coming from an avid Samsung/Android fan. Lets just be honest, none of these Android OEMs offer any cohesiveness in their product portfolio anymore now that they all strive to have the highest specs to not be overshadowed by one another from one static release date. It's a mess.
