Default Looking for new phone

My S3 is on its last leg. Buddy at work was saying get the g2 or maybe wait for g3. Going to stick with Verizon though.

One of biggest concerns with s3 is GPS has been awful for a long time. Even my Google maps nav loses signal all the time. I need s good GPS as well as a good all around phone

Verizon? look here http://evleaks.at/2014/05/23/lg-g3-verizon-wireless/
at least Verizon's G3 will be (almost, f*ckin' ugly logos) the same as other versions.
G2 to G3 is a evolution, not revolution, but both phones are awesome, i mean, G3 WILL be awesome

because G3 is on Snap801 (at least Korean version) then G2 should get the custom ROM with new UI very fast, I also hope that G2 will get new UI officially.
LG G2 (D802)
oh God, what ROM haven't I flashed yet...

From experience, get a good case (I use Spigen Slim Armor). The G2 is an awesome phone, the best bang for the buck, but due to such small bezels its main trade off is fragility. Even a small drop hitting in a corner will shatter the screen, as the plastic edge deflects into the screen before it rebounds on impact. Looking at the G3 I think its the same. Having said that, definately get a G3, LG always gives more/better features/hardware for lower cost than the other major companies.

If you have patience wait for G3, if not or your phone is almost dead buy a G2. I got myself one yesterday. Battery life insane, GPS measures so accurately that honestly I cant believe it...
