What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG G3 Wifi issues. I love how this is known problem and no one can fix it. I have a leased phone through Sprint and I am not up for an upgrade until 2017. My phone barely works and is trying to connect to wifi yet there is nothing there. Nothing goes through as this phone keeps trying to find wifi.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best phone The LG G3 was worth waiting for. I enjoy everything about this phone, no complaints what so ever. My previous LG phones worked great no problems. Like the V10, just not sure I would ever like dual camera. Lgg5 going to give some time before I make that choice but looks nice

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Blue Screen of Death! I've had my phone for about a year and it worked great. However, it recently just froze and turned to a bright blue screen. Ever since then, it won't even turn on at all or charge. It appears to be a common problem with this phone. It is literally called the blue screen of death.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AWESOM PHONE! it's a solid phone in my opinion. I'll start with the pros like, the screen is intense. Sure it's colors may be off and even pale when put next to a Galaxy S5 for example, but it doesn't do everything wrong. Pictures, games, videos; This screen makes everything look great, as long as you're not outside, then you may have a bit of trouble seeing the screen, but 100% brightness remedies that. Even though it has a Snapdragon 801, it is still more than enough power to get you through most apps. Most people complained of stuttering on the home screen, but a slight adjustment in the developer options, or a new launcher fixes that right away. It's camera takes beautiful shots, as long as there's plenty of light, it's night shots leave a bit to be desired, but it takes amazing pictures of sunsets if you're wondering. And of course the battery, it honestly has many good days. At first it may drain fast, but give it a couple days and it'll adjust and last you the whole day. But you have to learn a phone's limit. People that complain about short battery life tend to leave max brightness, play games for hours on end and expect the battery to not die. Now I'm not completely defending it. It has days where the display just wrecks the battery and I don't know why. But most of the time it's just background apps eating at the battery.
