I like the feel of the G3, the size of the screen/phone is perfect, and the bezels alone make it look sexy. Hehe. The G3 is one of the best looking phone of the year. Imo. Oh and that G3 camera is very good. I really don't have any issues with the phone.

I've tried both and the SGS5 is faster and more fluid.

Idk man. I got rid of some bloat, installed a different keyboard and got nova launcher, and its super fluid. There's no lag in UI like there is in the S5 even with Nova launcher.

I wanted to buy one ... I've been trying the LG G3 (16MB) in the shop today (stock software).

It is not as fast as I had expected and the UI has lags.

My S4 with stock android (google play edition) feels faster than the LG G3.

They did not have 32MB in the shop; so I'll wait until I can get my hands on that model to try.

Guys this is my honest opinion about this Device:
after alot of research, i choosed LG G3's Phone over GS5 And Note 3, and last week i bought this 32/3 GB version D855 international. Like alot of people out there i was really confused and abit anxious about this phone because all the benchmarks out there and ppl talking about Lags. so here is my answer to some issue people talking about:
Lag Issue: first when i got the phone,software was 10g and i felt that lag ppl were talking about but that wasn't really hurting my experience, but after i updated the phone to 10L, it was gone completely for me.
Over Sharpening: i really never ever notice this one.
Benchmark: i ran Antutu almost every day in this past week, well now i believe that benchmarks are just Crap ( or maybe i dunno how to use this apps properly) in Day 1 i got 40426, Day 2: 29794, Day 3: 34002, Day 4: 39914, Day 5: 26271(!?), Day 6: 41095 ... things are crap guys :|
Headset jackpot: Mine is not Cracked yet
Signals: My Signal is Maxed-out.
Heat: This thing is true, it heat but it will not get HOT just Warm. and mostly happen when you charging or setting brightness High.

and guys, i run any games without any problem. only issue i have is that two of my CPU cores are sleep when i check them with CPU-Z, sometimes they wake up(is it the right word for work here ? ) for around 3-4 sec then sleep.

HORRIBLE LG crapware (why waste time coding such laggy and annoying apps??? )
Problem with data network on chrome? (unresolved websites whereas working on sotck browser...)
Ridiculous sharpening on screen which ruins 50% of the resolution benefit (seriously, some people at LG must be drunk while implementing such things)
Locked bootloader

I regret seelling my nexus 5 for this, will just wait for the new nexus for now :s

I really don't understand you at all. I don't have any of those problems. LG G3 is really beat phone that I ever have. Previously I have 4s iPhone, HTC ONE X, Samsung S5....You can considered to replaced it for new one, because obviously you by something that isn't good from beginning.

Actually i know where he's coming from, i had a nexus 5 too for over a year. The fact is that the G3 is nowhere as fluid as the nexus 5.
G3 performs better on lollipop, less stutters than it does on kitkat (from my experience with my device), but those little hick ups and microlags every now and then are still visible.

Also over-sharpening is a well known issue on this device (i notice it mostly on grey background).

In my case, i am ok with the little stutters in favor of the added functionality of the software and some of the options LG threw in. I dislike all the workarounds needed to get root access, something that's never a problem on a nexus.
In case of the fellow forumer you quoted, he's not OK with it, and it's his right.
