    Read my signature. I don't have OPO, never did. I got those from the posts from this forum that people have been posted every day.

    LG G3 has horrible battery life! And lags too do to its high pixel screen which eats up battery. Seriously anybody that's stares at their phones screen and has a boner cause it has no life! What ya gonna b telling people walking by "ooh look at this screen, ooh its shiny...!". No body gives a ****!

    Who can ever feel their smart phone vibrate
    I've owned
    HTC Hero, One, One X, Evo 3D, Samsung Galaxy S4
    and the only time I ever notice a vibration is when it's sitting on the desk in class...
    Still waiting for my OPO to arrive so I can't relate to these issues you guys have stated.

    my One is perfect, no yellow band, no WiFi issues, or Bluetooth, nothing wrong with it at all. Never tried the GPS, I have no clue how that works on this. July issue.

    If anybody wants to trade a LG G3 with warranty for this one, please PM. Includes Nilkin case, Nilkin H9 screen protector, and flip case, all there with original box, NA charger and papers. Not a tiny scratch on it either.

    So your OPO is working fine, but you still want to trade?

    LOL - so glad I gave up on this phone before they ever sent invites. Had the G2 and just got free upgrade to G3 :) Loving the phone.

    Anyway, I can't say why everyone did, but I changed cause the damn phone was available and I didn't need some invite bullshit!!!

    Just look at this ingame performance:

    OnePlus One beats all the other Androids in terms of Benchmark + In APP performance. G3 is probably the worst. Worse than G2. Very laggy due to low FPS.

    As for Benchmark tests, OnePlus One beats G3 by far:

    LG g3 probably the best phone of 2014. You'd have to try one to understand. It's kind of like a Honda-not necessarily the best at everything but good at everything and bad at nothing. It's the best phone I've ever owned and I've had a lot of Apple and Android. I would not take an opo now and give up my g3 for anything. Op blew it with their invites. I would even consider the new moto g upgrade at 180+- contract free over opo.

    yes, this is great phone, but the LG has me hooked. I have 2 G2 (my wife has one, I have the other)and love them, I would like to try the G3 at par exchange. I like the One, but I also like bloat ware (aka, the nice UI apps to play with).

    On Craigslist in my area they are selling OPO 64gb for $425+ but I haven't seen any "trade" OPO for any other phone including LG G3.

    No, it doesn't affect the phone at all, and you don't all have it, and you only really notice if you are reading on a white background even at that, only in certain light conditions. It is really, they say, just the glue hasn't hardened properly and they say it will go away in time. There are ways to take away the yellow tint which is about the bottom fifth of the screen, through modifying the overall screen temperature, but I am just holding out until it goes by itself, since I have no other problems with the phone, I can live with it for now. :)

    Thanks for the response. The more I read as far as the possible complaints about the phone and people's reactions or responses to such complaints have been very helpful in me deciding to still purchase the phone for when I do get the invite. I'm in need of 2 OPOs. My son just started Middle school and that's when we, along with a bunch of or friends decided would be time for them to get their first phones. I gave him my old Galaxy S3 for now and I'm using my wife's old Galaxy S3 with a cracked screen. So, the way I figure it is that even with the yellow band... it'll be light years better than the cracked screen! Hahaha. And I thought that it would be a cool thing for father and son to figure out all the ins and outs of the OPO together. It'll probably be more like son schooling dad on all the new things that he's discovered about the phone. Amazing how capable these guys are at such an early age!
