LG G3...Your thoughts? Best Android phone for the price?

I'm thinking about getting one...just wondering what you think?

I think you should wait for the asus zenfone 2, should be just a couple of weeks off. For the price (200$), and considering it competes at the highest level hardwarewise without any problems, it's absolutely amazing.

Don't ask to ask, just ask... please聽馃え

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

I think it's a pretty nice phone.

This post brought to you by a chronic lack of patience and sarcasm!

Also, the PSU tier list + cultists are聽a joke that nobody should actually take seriously

Oh wow...I forgot about the zenfone. I have an Asus G750 laptop and I love it.聽

Really good phone, recommend it, especially the 32 GB one (with 3gb ram)

Got mine yesterday, but 聽the seller was a dickhead and the usb port can only be used for charging, flashed a lollipop rom today on it, really smooth but I accidentally soft-bricked my G3 and now it's stuck in a bootloop(not because of the rom tho).When I tried to go back to the stock rom(LG one) using the backup that I had in TWRP, I unchecked the "Data" option which also restores the apps and stuff you had on it, after that I rebooted it and after the LG and AT&T screens show up, the screen goes black and boots again in the AT&T bootloader, I've had the same problem with my Oppo Find 5 last summer, but I fixed that.. Going to a service tomorrow to see how much it would cost to replace the usb port if possible, or replace the mainboard if necessary

It's not a bug, it's an undocumented feature!

It's worth waiting for at the very least, if it's a fluke and reviews suck at the absolute worst you'll have waited two weeks for nothing.

It's a very good phone. Though personally I think the Note 4 is the best phablet right now.聽

I think the the LG G3 is a great phone, but i would say that i own one as my daily driver the only bad side is the batterly life barely lasts a day but that is a trade of for most smartphones now.聽

since you can buy this phone for under -拢300 i think it is great value聽

I'm thinking about getting one...just wondering what you think?

1) How much does the G3 cost?

2) How much does the Moto X cost?
