So, the LG G3 is looking more and more tempting.. anyone got one and can comment on it? Battery life ok? Nice and fast? Camera ok?

Cheers!

My Samsung Galaxy S3 is on its last legs. It has cyanogenMod installed, a 6 month old Anker battery and it is still sluggish, the camera crashes all the time, and the thing runs out of charge by 5pm after a bit of use.

So, since i'm out of contract I think it is time for a new phone. I need to be on Vodaphone (bad signal at home, I have a suresignal box to boost it). The phone choices are...

Samsung Galaxy S5
LG G3
HTC One M8
Sony Xperia Z3

Right - i would quite like a replaceable battery and definitely need to add an SD card.

Any ideas based on personal experience?

    Sony Xperia Z3 uses a Non-removable Li-Ion 3100 mAh battery
    HTC One M8 uses a Non-removable Li-Po 2600 mAh battery
    LG G3 uses a Li-Ion 3000 mAh battery
    Samsung Galaxy S5 uses a Li-Ion 2800 mAh battery

    so if you want one to get a spare battery then it would rule out the Sony and HTC

    Updated original message.. I'm now heading towards the LG G3 (Big screen, IR blaster, replaceable battery are sounding good, and it's cheapish)

    I've got one. Had it since August. Love it. Good size screen. The power button is on the back below the camera which takes a bit of getting used to. The screen is nearly edge to edge so be careful where you put your thumb!

    The display is vibrant and really clear, the battery is long lasting and the speakers are good (though not as loud as the HTC One - my previous phone).

    Best feature for me is being able to lock and unlock the phone by double tapping the screen. I find myself tapping the screen of my Samsung Tab 4 before realising it doesn't have this feature.

    The G3 is kind of an old model now..I would wait to see what LG comes out with next.
    I shot a vein in my neck and coughed up a Quaalude.

    If you can hold off for a couple of months, this recently announced zenphone 2, supposed to retail at $199, will be a solid device.

    True, but it's last year's flagship - LG and others will be releasing new flagships very soon.
