    G2 has similar issues and I'm currently using Lux to solve the problem.

    This sounds like a job for...

    Xposed!

    Yessir, I like the U/I, so, a touch of a few XPOSED Modules is all that's needed.
    At least having the brightness cranked up, so, far, doesn't seem to be taking much from battery life.

    We'll see after a few days of use......

    Eeek... Without it, how was it in the sun, brotha? Makes me worry a little. You know that's huge out here.

    Not addressed to me. But was real sunny here in NC today and I had no problems in the sun. But that was manually setting the brightness.

    Its just the suto brightness that you can't count on. I've found 70%-75% a nice set it and forget it setting.

    If you order from BB by 7/12, you should be able to get it for $99 and get the $50 gift card back.

    Another option with Best Buy is to get a $100 gift card if you do the EDGE, Next, or EasyPay options. I may look in this one:

    LG G3 Cell Phone: LG G3 Mobile Phone - Best Buy

    Looks like it is valid through 8/9/14 per the fine print.

    I can't do that option because I need to keep my UDP. Still, $49 is a pretty good deal for this phone on day 1.

    Beyond pretty good! The list of worse things I have spent more than $49 on is almost endless. I heard that you can't get gold, however. Definitely hurting my street cred

    In the silicon industry, true dat. Catch is the tooling, systems and process migration to other facilities that will actually produce the end product for a manufacturer. Qualcomm should milk 28nm for as long as they can, since sweet margin once all the capital has been absorbed with return on investment.

    This is the part of the discussion before where you and I differ in semantics. There is a product roadmap that will fit in regards to the tech available, but Qualcomm will balance their P&L based on that and what their customers want. The combination of course equals a diminished return curve that any business should manage through to maximize profit.

    Simply put, they will milk 28nm for as long as their customers will let them and until 20nm is an efficient process in their own facilities. Now, if you are saying Qualcomm is ready now and are moving forward, inside information always trumps :)

    I place bets that we will not see the 810 chip in many devices (mass) until next spring, but if Qualcomm is ready now, perhaps a shift of production to afford some room for 810 chips later this year? Cool if correct! :)

    Qualcomm is fabless and at once at arm's length and slaved to tooling success. Most of their stuff has been built by TSMC.

    It's true that they both profit from longer use of existing processes, but it's also true that constant migration to newer processes is very profitable for TSMC - for all the obvious reasons.

    Samsung has been 20 nm capable for some time.

    Your best bet to keep ahead of the publicity curve in making estimates of who can do what when is to pay close attention to the tool providers (and this is where I have to act coy because that's what I've been tied to - my work was to get the toolmakers ready and then help the fabs qualify the new processes - I think you can see why I have to be skittish). Anyway, here's a sample if you're not already familiar (and not my employer).

    Phandroid also believes that the phone advertisement is somehow an anomaly and that LG has never said a word about that phone.

    If it doesn't happen in the Western world, and if the whole gang of blogosphere criminals don't agree, then it never happened.

    Reality is ever so much more convenient when you put your head into the nice, friendly, comforting sand.

    They could be right.

    If other carriers don't want that model, it won't go beyond the Korean carriers that do.

    Lux is good. Don't recall exactly offhand which functions, if any, require root though.

    You are Awesome! I was just about to post, to see if anybody in the East Coast was able to get the gold at Best Buy. Looks like I'm gonna be going there at lunch.

    btw, what city are you in?

    Pre-ordered black from VZW, on my wife's line though I'll activate it on my unlimited data line.

    Trying to figure out SanDisk vs. Samsung 64GB micro SD, which is better to get, and whether Amazon's SlimArmor case has the Korean antenna cutout (which I don't want).

    Someone remind me if this works on Verizon: I pay for my phone and my mom's. Could I upgrade hers to the G3 then put my SIM in the G3 and have it as mine and just put her SIM back in her current phone? For some reason I'm thinking this wasn't possible anymore?

    I'll do the DPP if I have to to keep unlimited. Just trying to pay less.
     

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.
