Is the LG G3 a big upgrade over the LG G3?

Is the LG G3 a much better phone than the LG G2?

Here's a comparison

I'm not paying much attention to LG - been years since an Irish network sold an LG... and I live in Ireland. And LG's designs don't appeal to me.

But judging by the article, it's quite the upgrade from the LG G2 to the G3

That article seems to be based on a specsheet rather than hands-on experience.

From my point of view, I have the G2 and don't think that the G3 is a massive upgrade. Lots of the software features can be added to the G2 via a custom rom. I use CloudyG3 which adds 4K/slomo video, the G3 keyboard and the clean UI, with excellent stability/battery life.

Most other reviews I've read say the G3 screen is very nice, but not essential. After all, the 1080p G2 screen is no hardship. Battery life is amazing on the G2 - mine goes 2-3 hours before dropping from 100% - so I don't have a need to swap batteries.

That leaves expandable storage, which is a nice to have but again not essential for me. Could be the deal breaker for some though. The rest is just incremental upgrade stuff for me. Roll on the G4!

Thanks, [email protected]
you're probably right.
Most phone 'upgrades' in the last 12-18 months were fairly incremental - to torture a term.
As I said - haven't seen an LG in RL since the first Viewty.
Always meant to find out why nobody in all of Ireland has sold LGs in years - with the exception of Argos who advertise a model or two without ever stocking them...
