It's a mix bag ...I had all 3...the g flexs 3500mah battery is very strong and can last long like 9-10hrs on a single charge. it just the p-oled and few older features drain it...I'd also say that even though the g2 has a 3000mah and the one has a 2600mah the battery life is pratically the same which is kind of strange but that might be a snapdragon 800vs 801 thing ...they last around 7-8hours on a single charge..just bare in mind that you can't lose with any of them really..

I had a LG g2. With my new contract on T-mobile i got a new m8. 2 weeks and I was back on my LG. M8 is bigger but with a smaller screen, Sense 6 sucks hard in my opinion and the battery life wasnt even that close to the g2. Camera sucks on g2 but for me it's the better Phone.

Lgs ui is horrendous. And the phone lags. Just my two cents. But to each their own.

well, I had a flex for 6 months,(actually 3 of them), and I did like the phone, even if the graphics(720P) were just so so; my last one had bad ghosting, but that went away after the 4.4 update.

I dumped the flex a few weeks ago for an M8, and I have to say I like this phone ALOT more; smoother, much better screen and sound, and tons more development, if that's what you are into. Also, endless accessories for the M8, and hardly anything for the Flex..

The flex battery is the king of all batteries, no doubt, but the M8 easily lasts me all day, so that's all that I really care about.
I thought I would have a problem with a smaller screen, but, in the summer, when shorts are worn a lot, its easier to keep my pants up with a M8 in my pocket than it was with the Flex

I am waiting to see what the Note 4 brings to the party, and also, to see if HTC comes out with a M8 MAXX; THAT would be my phone of choice if that happens, but who knows what the future holds.

I had mine for 6 months (JUMP) and just traded it in with T-Mo...The battery on the M8 and the Flex is abut the same honestly,,,,I'm 6'5 234lbs with big hands. But after use for so long my depth of perception changed and all phones curved outwards. I also experienced a cramp in my thumb area. However, I loved it to death but I basically got bored. The M8 sound is craaaazy good and the screen is sweet. I have to get used to the screens material when swiping and the size. I mistype a LOT on it. But overall the M8 is the better device IMO.
