Are the Nexus 5 or HTC Max serious competitors for the att note 3? What about the Chinese smartphones(cyanogen phone, etc) coming out soon?

I currently own both g2 and note3.

To be honest, g2 is really an awesome phone and I'd choose it over note 3 any day. It's fast smooth and about same amount of available ram. Lg stole all the software features from touchwiz and incorporated in g2.

Double tap to wake up a phone is an awesome feature that I miss also in note 3. Camera on g2 is superior and comes with an optical image stabilization which (I think) is missing on note 3.

Another thing to note is that g2 can be rooted and (AT&T) note3 cant be. I'm aheavy modder and flasher but for some reason I don't feel the need to root note3 or g2 either.

Now why do I like note 3 is because its a note series phone. I love the s-pen. At my work I have a choice of carrying a notebook and a g2 or just a note 3. Well I choose note3.

I know rooting is not a priority for me right now but if it is something that matters to you then either get a g2 or a tmobile note3. Or wait for a while.

Nexus 5 is a competitor for any phone, period.

Now that being said, the latest leaked spec document for nexus 5 reveals it to be similar to g2 with 600 mah less battery (2400 in nexus 5 as compared to 3000 in g2). My g2 lasts for 24 hours easily but I don't think it was a smart choice to lower the battery power of nexus 5.

My gut feeling it's that G2 will have a good dev forum.

Well thanks man, i just bought a T-mobile Note 3 ( did you know that you can easily sim unlock it and use it on AT&T LTE? And the bootloader is unlocked!) but if i dont like it i definitely will go with the G2, in fact i am most certain that i will get the G2 regardless that i like the Note 3 or not.

Lol I know. I'm planning on keeping both. Actually I've got a Moto x also coming. I have to make a choice between Moto x and g2. I want a smaller phone to compliment my note. I'm absolutely loving note though. Spen opens up so many opportunities. Slightly larger screen gives me a good reading experience on kindle app. Love this phablet.

Why carry multiple phones? A big part of my reasoning for purchasing the note 3 was to eliminate the need for multiple devices.

Won't carry multiple phones at same time. Just for different occasions. If I'm going for a party, it makes more sense for me to carry smaller moto x. At work I'd like to have, well, a note.

Same here. In fact I sold my ipad 3 as.i figured this would be enough.

Why the motto x? It doesn't seem to be up to part with the g2, Nexus 5, or note 3.
