    The LG G3 is a flagship device. The specs are top notch, the design is sleek, and the stuffs that it has are awesome.

    Design.
    The design of the G3 is good. The Quick Circle case is good; it's really useful and doesn't take too much battery. I like the back buttons,when you want to change volume without taking it out of your pocket. The screen is what is taking most of the front, and that's really nice. You can put in the micro sd card without taking out your battery. But. The Quick Circle case and its knock code is a pain in your gallery. It takes black photos of nothing in your pocket. When you're on skinny jeans, things get worse. The phone goes bonkers and makes sounds when you sit xD

    Specs.
    Specs on this phone are really what a flagship is about. The quad HD screen is actually different than the 1080p screens. The phone is fast*. The most amazing part is that the battery goes on for the whole day, if you don't game as much. Even though, LG gives you 2 batteries.

    *: With micro SD. Do not put your music and photos in your internal storage. LG only gives you 32GB internal storage at max.

    Stuffs.
    So much bloatware. I don't know if you get that straight from LG, or if it's just because I got the carrier version. When you get your phone, most of the stuff are olleh (carrier name) bloatware and LG apps that I don't need as much. System takes up 5 to 6GBs of internal storage. The Quick Circle case needs two taps to open Quick Circle apps sometimes.

    Overall, the G3 is a great phone. It lags when you don't have 10GBs of free storage but the phone goes on for the whole day with the 3000mAh battery. The apps are great looking with this phone, and overall, I like it. But I don't think I will like it in 3-4 years.

    If you want to learn more about the G3, feel free to ask. I'll try it in my G3.

    Awesome. No root ability to remove the bloatware? Also, I'm looking at the G3 and I'm curious if I were to get it directly from google (unlocked, I'm assuming) I could avoid some bloatware?

    Link? lol. B/c now I'm contemplating picking it up. I'm trying to make my S3 last as long as possible. WAiting for 805 or 810 devices and/or possibly the Nexus 6.

    What software is your S3 currently running? I am currently using a S3 and have no reason to upgrade whatsoever (until an invite came along miraculously.....).

    Currently, I don't think that you can get one from Google. But if you but it off contact, you might be able to get rid of carrier bloatware. Toy also have the options in the app drawer to hide apps.

    Is rooting good? I can't get rooting because the Korean banking system blocks rooted phones from using banking services.

    I root all my devices...I usually wipe out half the bloatware they put on the phone from the factory
