What people are saying
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Im impressed i bought this phone, reluctantly, from a friendly retailer. i was told it would simplify my life with all its wonderous customizable features. skeptic is not the word....but I'll use that one. i had it for two weeks and had just begun falling in love with it. i had adapted to what it couldn't adapt to my preferences and i had just realized how much it had simplified Manny things for me, and it was stolen. oh the torture of losing such an awesome phone/assistant/device/friend!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My first smart phone Yes, this was my first smart phone. The phone I had before this one was the LG Env3 which was great. I hated to part with it, (it was still working perfectly after many years), but my friends & family members finally convinced me that I needed a smart phone. Well, after searching around, I settled on the LG G3. All I can say is, almost 2-1/2 years later, this phone is still as perfect for me as it was the day I bought it (and I have not had one problem with it in all that time). It does everything well, but the one feature that I absolutely love is that there are no "buttons" on the sides of the phone. All the controls are on the back so no matter how I hold it, or slide it into my pocket, I can't "accidentally" push the buttons - just a great design! It looks like LG's newer phones have moved some controls to the side, so I'll just have to make sure I keep this phone forever!
