Heh, Samsung and HTC, consistent. That's never been the case. Not even the Nexus devices are consistent with updates all the time.

Looks like my battery/cradle shipped as well, and I bought the phone on launch day, not during the dates of the promotion, but I filled it out and sent it in anyway..  Should be delivered today

I will eat crow as the g3 and g2 will be receiving lollipop. The original lg Optimus g should see it too seeing that the nexus 4 will get it. Just saying. As that is the phone my mom uses. Hehe!

Quiet around here.. Everyone still happy with their G3 purchase, except for the poor battery life?  :)

I get 12 hours with 8 SOT, I dunno what poor battery life you had but this phone is awesome in all departments. Except there is no CM yet

I'm loving this phone.  I have two extra batteries and don't even bother plugging my phone in ever.

Well, loving the phone, except for the compass.  GPS itself is plenty accurate, but the constant error in the compass direction makes Google Maps and many other apps that draw from compass (like Sky Map) nearly unusable.  Waze seems to work fine though, for nav.

Are you using auto brightness?  I've never heard of anyone getting 8 hours SOT. All the reviews I've read where they actually tested the phone get about 4-5 max, which is what I'm seeing as well.  Standby is great, but as soon as the screen is on, I can watch the battery gauge drop.

I get two days of battery life on average, moderate usage. Heavy usage brings it down to 1 day. Nothing to complain about there!

How is Cloudy G3 working for you?  I just bumped my phone, and will try flashing that ROM.. Hopefully will get a good bump in smoothness and battery life.

It's ok. It took a lot of tinkering with build.prop to get phones calls ans SMS to stop crashing. But its SIM unlocked and Native Tether capable.

Yeah, I read a bunch of the threads over on XDA, sound like several people are having problems with this ROM because it's built off the international GSM firmware and not CDMA. It's probably saver to run a ROM that someone created from the Sprint variant.  

 

At this point, I'll probably just keep it stock until there is a good Android 5.0 based ROM available.

I'm on g2 but the g3 port has better LTE connection on my g2, bit worse CDMA because it's a gsm port. :S

This is incredible. I can't wait to see what LG does next. If they keep this up, they might put Samsung out of business soon.

LG G4 Here we go!

If they don't fix the locked bootloader they are gonna lose the Dev community though... Lollipop is adding even more security with the Kill Switch and the bootloader/root will only get harder to crack. Makes me sad to see it, I just wish they'd do a program like HTC Dev Unlock and just let us unlock.

 

That said, the display look amazing and I'll def be watching!

Did anyone actually get the AMEX card that was promised when purchasing the G3 back in July? I still hadn't gotten mine, was curious today and found out it was denied. I'm having trouble understanding why, as I did everything that was required.

The SAME exact thing happened to me. Nobody at Sprint can tell me why or how to rectify the issue. I'm not happy.

      Hey guys, have any other users of the g flex 2 noticed issues with lagging battery life etc? Since I got my g flex 2 I have had these issues, even after a complete factory reset / wipe it's still laggy with minimal applications installed? I was just curious if that anyone else had been having these type of issues with the g flex 2.

    • And its back up today. Speeds seem good for 10x10. I did test calling, I was able to get my phone to ring while on SA N71 but no audio passed either way. Sent from my SM-G986U using Tapatalk
    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
