Also an EVO user (still use as WiFi device) and I recognize you from those forums. I highly recommend this device! Gave up my Nexus 5 for it and absolutely no regrets. IMHO, the best device currently available.

Hey thanks for recognizing.. lol. Well in all honesty I really believe all the hype about the G3, but I'm also considering the M8 cause it's closer to what I'm accustomed to. I guess I'm just hesitant to move on to something different. Also I'm concerned about the reported lag and heating up on the G3...

Like someone mentioned above, I was a long-time Galaxy S fan. I had every one from the Fascinate to the S4. My first LG phone was the G2, which I got on a whim because my S4 broke. Let's just say I loved the G2 so much that I HAD to get the G3.

The only downer for me is that there is no root yet, but of course that will come with time. The problems you mentioned above, I don't experience myself, but root will fix a lot of it. The dev in charge is going through some life problems atm, so we have to wait. I am definitely patient though. It's like waiting for Christmas!

Personally, I have zero heat issues but I don't game other than solitare. As far as lag goes, I'm still in disbelief because I have not experienced that either. Enable dev options, set animations to .5. I had used Nova for a week and then switched back to stock. In my opinion, lag is a myth. Possibly on the 16/2 models it may exist but this is much faster than my Nexus was.

Thanks for the feedback guys.. much appreciated. I'll let you know if I get it. (Most likely I will). Oh, another thing, is it safe to buy from either Amazon or bestbuy? Only cost 100$..

I'm actually an avid gamer. My phone gets a little warm after a while, but not warmer than what I'd expect from a 2.5ghz, 3GB RAM beast lol it's not like super hot though, like people have been saying. I have even played while the phone is charging. It doesn't get extremely hot at all. The quad HD display is absolutely beautiful for gaming and even videos, too.

I'd say it would be OK. Is it $100 with renewal of contract?
