My thoughts as well. The only thing that even looks attractive at the moment is the opportunity to pick up an m8 for $99 because I have an upgrade to burn. A truly unlocked device is tempting and I haven't had anything HTC since an incredible, which is still working as an mp3 player.

Totally agree. If I were going to buy a new phone right now--especially on-contract -- I'd probably go with the G3. Maybe. The G2 is still an awesome phone and now it's really cheap, too.

That said, the SD card is very tempting for two reasons: It didn't bother me at first, but I like to flash a lot of ROMs and end up doing a lot of nand backups once they're set up. I've gotten used to just keeping a stock backup on the phone at all times and moving the rest to my computer just in case. (With the G3 ROM working so well, though, I haven't needed to flash anything else for some time. Looking forward to one that came from a VZW phone!)


Second, I would like to start keeping songs on my phone again. Google Play is great, but like a lot of people my signal strength isn't what it was before the KitKat update. Also, I'm convinced VZW is having an issue near me that it isn't admitting.

Still, I bought the G2 off contract to keep my unlimited data, so unless someone made me a really good offer on it, the $600 for a G3 isn't worth it just for the SD card.

Also curious about the battery. Removable is good, but it's the same size as the G2 battery, but with a bigger/better screen to power and a (slightly) faster processor. Even though they say it's still the best battery life you can get right now, I'm interested in seeing just how long it lasts.

I've been doing a lot of reading in the G3 forums and it seems that there are some unique issues because of the screen and some prevalent temperature issues too.
Anybody hear if the G3 has the same variance in screens (jdi/lgd)? Some people seem to have a higher degree of oversharpening than others.
