Its not the same battery as the g2. yes there are software tricks enabled to lesson the drain of the 2k display, but in the end, a physically larger battery will never hurt.,,, because such software tricks can still be utilized on a larger battery.

Not that the battery life is bad, but it isn't class leading or anything. You'll see users posting about 7-8 hours of SOT on M8 and GS5 forums. On this site everyone is just trying their best to get 5-6 hours. I do think 5-6 hours is good, (I got 4 hours on my first discharge, and that included being mostly on LTE and playing around with the camera and taking videos). So i do think I should be able to achieve 5 hours of SOT under normal usage (wifi use and no camera). But its definitively not better than the G2 battery.

Yeah you right about that it is not going to better than the g2. But what your doing is comparing the g3s weakness to the g2s strength. Definitely not a good idea lol
