    Here are pictures of my Seidio Surface with metal kickstand (holster not pictured). It has a thin form factor. I have a Verus Thor (similar to Spigen Slim Armor) case on my wifes and it's thicker and slightly bigger.

    Note: ignore the screen protector on the phone. I purchased a tempered glass and its too big to use with the Seidio Surface. The front lip of the case takes up slightly more room. So I'm waiting for the standard film screen protector to come in the mail. The only tempered glass screen protector that would fit with the Seidio is their Vitreo tempered glass. Sneaky Seidio...real sneaky by forcing us to spend $40 on your overpriced tempered glass screen protector.

    I wish seidio would give a non-kickstand option, I had the seidio active for my DNA and could never get used to the kickstand bump.

    Seriously. I had the Surface with no kickstand. If they're going to put a kickstand, at least let me stand it up in portrait mode also. Sheesh.

    But the kickstand bump doesn't bother me.

    Excellent choice! :thumb:

    I have the same style case (Black trim w/Black body) on my M8 (THX to SolApathy for sharing this find) & it's one of my most-liked cases of any phone I've owned.

    It adds to the already great feel-in-hand w/o feeling bulky & is quite a rugged case to go along w/the cool looks.

    I gotta admit... I do like this one better cause it feels better in the hand and retains the curve of the G3.

    Gave my Mom the G3 to use, and she loves the case I got for her:

    Frosted Clear TPU Skin Case For LG G3 - LG Silicone Skin Case

    Ultrathin, covers the entire phone and matte finish.

    My son is getting the G3 next week. I think I'll let him borrow my Slim Armor till he gets the Otterbox he wants. :)

    bumping this thread, so new peeps can see all the accessories that have been posted.

    Most importantly, I see many new threads being started, discussing Qi Wireless charging, which has had solutions available since day 1, via ebay. I've had Qi Wireless charging on the G3 since after the first 3 days of owning.

    Just picked up a Qi pad on icemonkey for <$25! With that and the sticker I ordered, I'm ready to step into the world of wireless charging!

    Is it really that easy? You just put the sticker on the backplate and it charges? I've been waiting for the circle case to come out, but this might be preferred.

    if you drop the phone with the case, it does not protect it that much..

    I'm running naked now, I baby the phone. Not really worried about protection too much. Although the circle case functionality is very cool.

    As I understand it, you have to remove the existing NFC only sticker (if you have that) and replace it with the Qi/NFC combo sticker. So to answer your question, yes, it appears it is that easy. This is the sticker on the inside of the backplate...you do not just put it on the exterior of the backplate. Just for clarification.

    I still say this is the most reliable/trouble free charging stand available (even compared to the OEM LG charging stand)

    https://www.dailysteals.com/icemonkey/#deals/26820

    Anytime I've placed my phone (Note 3) or the G3 on it, it starts charging without having problems with alignment. The OEM LG charging stand has this warning indicator, when it's "slightly" off center and makes you re-position to be straight on the stand.

    Can't find the link to mine anymore. Didn't know that I could post links on here or else I would have earlier. But go to icemonkey.com and scroll down...there's one on there currently for $22.

    Also...don't know about the 3-coil. I don't even know what significance that has. Maybe I got a crap one? I don't know.

    I've never used wireless charging before but I'm curious about it. I know there are 2 types PMA and QI, and ATT uses the PMA.

    I'm on ATT. I use a Otterbox Defender case. Is there any way to get wireless charging while using the Defender case?

    Here's the direct link

    https://www.dailysteals.com/icemonkey/#deals/26848

    I figured out that when the pop-up comes out for the item you're interested in, you can click on the title of the item again and it'll go to a complete page.

    Thanks very much for the info and the link.

    Just what I've been wanting, your endorsement was invaluable!

    Cheers,

    Yeah, initially, I thought it would be cool to have the OEM, but after I got it, I quickly discovered that it doesn't work with other phones.

    No wireless charging for AT&T until they release a compatible replacement battery door cover. Once they do, you should be able to charge with the case on. It's just a matter of when that battery door cover with PMA capable wireless charging will be available.

    it's all very nice, but I've already spent about $115 on the accessories for this thing, in addition to $658 that I paid to t-mo upfront.
    no way I'm gonna spend another $49.
