    Can't speak for the devices you listed.... but my M8 barely gets warm. It hasn't got hot yet. My GS3 felt like it was going spontaneously combust when playing Candy Crush, GPS, or flash.... M8 mostly cool as the other side of the pillow, occasionally slightly warm (GPS).

    I've had no issues with reception on the M8 (VZW). Prior to the M8 I would have given the iPhone 5s the reception crown out of the phones I've owned (Dinc, iPhone 3g, Gnex, GS3, iPhone 4, iPhone 5s).

    My 5s consistently reports better signal than the M8 but the M8 consistently outperforms for data/voice in the same locations. I had 4g on the top of the mountain this weekend and posted the photo I posted a few pages back to facebook while on the peak (13,100 ft above sea level.... miles from no where).

    YMMV :dontknow:

    I have UDP, but havent seen a way for subsidized phone and keeping it on VZW. Any suggestions?

    Only offer I got to subsidize was to move onto the MAXX plan for their grandfathered UDP, but that drops to 6GB per month. would certainly rather keep UDP at $85/ mo.

    If the US versions perform as well (follow the link within that link for the updated review of the UK model), this looks like a really solid win for a lot of owners, and a win not only for LG but also Android.

    I'm sure some are worn out by reviews so here's my review of the review -

    It's glowing but seems fair and balanced without throwing rocks to sound objective.

    It's low on tech and high on the basic user (not dummy user) point of view.

    I wish more phone reviews were like that one. Tell me what you think personally and why in a way that invites me to check it out for myself.

    Do I agree or believe everything said?

    I never do! :D

    But this time I didn't feel like I needed a shower after a dirty sales pitch.

    And now I want to check one out just for fun, whereas the other write-ups burned me out. :)

    Thanks Steven, good catch!

    Looks like something is indeed happening tonight. The usual LG G3 link at vzw is no longer standing. I will assume we know the specs with zero doubt in the next 2 hours.

    Which loophole is that?. Is that where you transfer an upgrade to another phone?

    I think you ordered before I did,but,who knows how they queue the shipping.

    I used next-day shipping & earlier today received the tracking # from UPS.
    Took a few hours for T-Mobile's site to "sync-up" w/that info.

    Although the ETA from UPS does state 7/10/14 as the delivery date,it has yet to actually show up as arrived @ the Louisville,KY hub.

    I probably won't see any movement,if any,until early in the A.M.
    I've actually had items leave from this exact hub & arrive the same day on a couple of occasions.

    However,until I actually see some movement other than "shipping information received",I'm gonna assume that it is not yet on the way.

    My apologies if I got some hopes up that everyone can expect to see their shipment arrive earlier than scheduled.

    I'll post an update once the shipping actually starts,in the T-Mobile G3 thread:

    Haven't had the phone long enough to draw any conclusion. And it may be pixie dust. But I freaking love this thing so far.

    First thing I did was factory reset and switch to Art. (also only time the phone got hot was during the conversion).

    Maybe my expectations were lower from all the reviews. But screens awesome. It's really bright. Not sure how anyone would run this at 100% (would burn my eyes out). I do see the text halo and can see where it would bother people sensitive to it. I hope it gets fixed but it really doesn't bother me much. (ymmv)

    Only tiny lag I ever see is opening recent apps. I think it takes just a to draw all the screens. But it's barely noticeable, like a micro stutter.

    Size is good, really comfortable to use. And build quality feels almost as good as my M8 did.

    All in all I'm really pleased thus far. Now just have to see how the battery life shakes out.

    Perhaps if you go into SETTINGS > DEVELOPER OPTIONS & set the screen animation values to .5,or,just turn them off altogether,the nano-lag will all but disappear.

    Nothing to apologize about. I had chosen the standard shipment.

    Not that I can grab it from Stockholm, where I currently reside anyway.
    But I am coming home soon!

    I have. Running them all at. 5

    Just so I'm clear. It's not laggy at all. And I don't get that tiny stutter very often. It happens very very rarely. Really not worth even bringing up. But I'd be lying if I said I never saw it.

    Let's just say it isn't as smooth as my M8 was. But it's pretty damn close.

    If you paid for it, whether in installments, JUMP, or, purchased it outright,have the funds already been deducted from your financial institution?

    I thought the funds we're deducted the day I ordered, but, aftet some backtracking, I found only today did the funds actually clear to T-Mobile.
    So, with that in mind, I'm cautiously optimistic that by this time tomorrow, I'll be posting & telling everyone how awesome this phone is. ;)

    I paid outright, and I see temporary authorisation for Tmo upgrade for $658.

    My funds have left the building outright.

    Also,within the past hour,the shipment has actually arrived @ the Louisville,KY hub as of 1:05 AM EDT.

    ETA is 4:15 PM-6:15 PM EDT.

    Verizon update: pretty much nothing aside from them having a couple banners about 50% off all new smart phones with the G3 in the picture, but when you hit the link, the G3 isn't in the listing of smartphones and none of the prices for the other phones have changed either. :thumbdown::banghead:

    Need to wake up at 7. Maybe they will have more information (including edge pricing) later in the morning.

    Was just about to copy that link. Decisions...stay with at&t for about $15 less per month, or switch to Verizon and the supposedly better network (YMMV)??? The at&t g3 looks better too lol.
