Not worth it in my opinion. The feel and finish of the G3 is nowhere near the M8. Also, 5,5 inches is a bit too much for me. Not exactly comfortable to hold (and I don't have small hands). The UI felt sluggish and slow at times when I tested it (the 2/16GB version, perhaps the 3/32 is better in that aspect). The screen is nice, but I still prefer the M8. Crisper, more lively, better contrast. The G3 has too many pixels to move around, considering it hasn't got any snappier hardware than the M8. I wouldn't trade it in for the G3, and definitely not for an iPhone 5s. Let the M8 grow on you. You won't regret it.

The 2k screen of the g3 seems to be the major advantage over m8, but that comes with a cost. The speed of g3 simply won't be able to match m8 due to the gpu power wasted on 2k screen res. The material on the g3 is just plastic. The software support from LG is poor compared to HTC today, HTC promises Android L update for m7 and m8 within 3 months time. The stereo speakers on the m8 are unmatched by any other smartphone.

And, 5s??? Really?

Does 1440p really make that much of a difference as compared to the m8's 1080p (speed wise)?

Not 3 months from now, 3 months from the official L release. Which won't be til late fall. And the G3 will be a great device. You can't go wrong with M8 or G3. Not sure I'd sell my M8 for g3 tho. And 5s shouldn't even be in that equation lol.
