    How was LG with updates for the G2? On par, better or worse than Samsung has been?

    As usual, Verizon took a while to decide on when to start selling the LG G3. Today they finally put LG's latest flagship device up for pre-order. The G3 will be available for purchase on July 17th, but right now you can pre-order it online for $99.99.

    What's the odds we hear something on the G3+ in the next 7 days, that is the question. The Korean article said late July on that device if I'm not mistaken so one would think we'd hear something by July 17? I'm caught in between on this one. Not sure whether to push, pull or drag.

    EM, me be stunned that you refer to a Stuff review that appears to have the substance of nutrasweet icing :)

    This ain't the EM I have read..... Did a LG sales person jack your account? ;)

    If this baby had the 805 to manage the to fire all them pixels, and manage the battery, I'd pre-order. As of now, I am all: gotta wait for it to the store so I do a firsthand looksee.

    Just to show you some support, I think you are definitely approaching it the right way. Slow and steady is the way to go nowadays. Mobile tech is way too fast nowadays. Only reason I jumped from the Note 2 to Note 3 was really the 32gb internal. I am just waiting on 64gb to be offered for a phone with microSD, which is why I will likely wait until 2015 for my primary line upgrade.

    What a beautiful Scandinavian scenery.

    What a spectacular weather.

    The weather for the rich. :D

    Not at all and I meant that - most reviews are just fluff by the unwashed acting pretentious.

    Here was a good, subjective review that didn't seem to me to pretend otherwise.

    I put that together with Anandtech tests and I think it's kind of a parallax view.

    You yourself postulated that this would be a good phone for not heavy users - there's the same conclusion from someone who's tried two copies.

    Caution - last word I thought I saw was T-Mobile and AT&T closing the towelroot exploit...

    More caution - don't accept update after turning on phone.

    Also, check AndroidForums and XDA for updates on rooting your specific carrier of the G3

    The exploit blocking update is probably tagging along w/this keyboard update:

    LG's smart keyboard for the G3 gets smarter with latest update | Android Central

    Of course,with such matters,there will not be a mention of it,other than the usual "Stability/Security" bug fixes,nothing specific naming root exploit.

    Yep.

    Airplane mode

    Side load Towelroot and SU

    Install Titanium or another app freezer

    Disable/freeze the LG update apk's, but do not delete them.

    Have fun :)

    The newest update will take your phone from 9d to 10c, it kills root. Retail G3s might be shipping with 10c already installed?

    Knowing how VZW loves locking down their devices.... wouldn't surprise me if they shipped with 10c:eek:

    For folks buying in-store.... don't let the clowns update your phone (if it ships with 9d);)

    Even if towelroot gets patched all around, don't forget about IOroot. It uses a different vulnerability that is less likely to be sealed.

    My T-Mo G3 should be arriving any moment from now until 6:00 P.M. EDT,I'll check what's on-board.

    Until recently I hadn't modded a phone other than aftermarket apps/etc...,no root/ROMS in a couple years.

    I really dig LG's U/I,however,as all mfgs do,they'll leave some features on the cutting room floor that can only be obtained by root/ROM's /etc. & settling for a stock/locked experience long-term just doesn't cut it anymore.

    Even if the Towelroot exploit is blocked,I'm confident someone will discover another method sooner rather than later......

    I'm confident you will get your hands on this puppy and join me (and my gold G3) in the 'Got Mine' thread. Pixie (pixel?) dust for everyone!!

    What's the next hot new phone speculation thread that we can migrate to?
     

LG G3

The LG G3 was the 2014 flagship device for LG, and was one of the first smartphones on the market with a 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 display. It featured a Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB or 3GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and a 13MP.
