Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great User Interface LG has done a great job with its user interface and the phone itself looks great but this LG3 is very slow at operating. And it overheats easily. I'm a big fan of LG electronics but I feel like for the price of this phone, LG should have stepped up and helped buyers of this phone out since it is one of the worst performing phones I've ever had.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Is this fake one? Hi. I was using this item and I purchased new g3 on Ebay and it was slightly different looking. LG, can you see the photos that I attached and tell me if this is fake or not? Thanks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Many years of service I bought this phone in late 2013. This has been one of the best decisions. It has been sturdy (in it's protector), and I really do love it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money! I bought this phone a little over a year ago. The lollipop and marshmallow updates have destroyed this phone. I had major problems after lollipop, then recently I did the marshmallow update. The phone is now stuck in boot loop mode - which means it just continually reboots itself. I called T Mobile, and they said that LG knows this is a problem - and they will warranty it for up to 1 year. 1 year?!? I expect a lot more from a phone that costs hundreds of dollars, and from a company that used to be known for its excellence and reliability!
