I took the leap last weekend and bought a G3 after having tried Motorola, HTC & most recently the S4. I had read really good reviews about the G3. Also read that it was selling really well too & that the S5 though a great device wasn't near meeting Samsungs sales expectations. I really like the G3 so far. The puzzling thing is that there's hardly any owners posting on this forum. I'm hoping that's because there aren't many complaints as people usually are willing to post when they don't like something vs. a good experience. I remember when the S4 came out (I got it the week it came to VZW) there were tons of posts about it. Just my $.02 .
