Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs LG G2

0. phoneArena posted on 17 Oct 2013, 09:29

So let's say that you're interested in getting a new high-end smartphone, and having a huge display is one of your top priorities. Well, the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 is among the handsets matching that description – it is fast, loaded to the brim with neat features, and equipped with a gorgeous 5.7-inch touchscreen. However, as in most cases, there's a number of alternatives to consider. One of them is the LG G2, packing a 5.2-inch display and the hardware muscle needed to give Samsung's phablet some heated competition...

I upgraded to the G2 a couple of days ago and it's absolutely the best phone I have ever seen. It's large but it's lightweight and thin. It's easy to hold for me and even though the glossy back is a smudge magnet. I really like it a lot.

How do you like your LG G2? I'm trying to decide between the Nexus 5 and LG G2. Thank you

I bought the Nexus 5 when it was released and used it for 2 weeks and am giving it back and getting the LG G2 (AT&T) on contract for $60 on amazon. I really liked the nexus 5, amazing phone overall, but couldn't justify spending $436 for a phone with an ok camera sub-par battery life. If you are able to upgrade your line with a contract, I would decide between these two phones. If you need an unlocked off-contract, then Nexus is the clear winner.

Well music is only as good as its source. If he is REALLY into music you would want to use lossless audio and not mp3 because mp3s are compressed. You lose sound quality with compression. I can't speak for the note 3 but I know the lg g2 supports 24 bit/192kHz lossless audio.

Winamp for Android is capable of handling both flac and alac (lossless formats)

The catch is, decoding them with the CPU consumes lots of power, draining the battery like mad.

Therefore, he should be looking for a device with hw decoding capabilities of the formats above.

I'm not sure if there are any Android phones with hw flac decoder. (Even if an Android phone is capable of playing flac, that doesn't necessarily mean it's done by hw decoder, plus hw alac decoder is not available on other devices than Apple's)

iPhone doesn't have a hw flac decoder, but alac is hw decoded, guaranteed.

So, a high capacity iPhone would be the best bet for your brother, if he only cares about music.

I like them both! But my preference was for the note3 I Can't imagine not having my S-pen. It really comes in handy.

I have both, pixel density is better on the G2 and I like not having any buttons on the side to accidently push...
There is no down side to either
