    Ok, I love everything about this phone except ONE thing. And it's pretty important to me.

    Choppy bluetooth audio playback to my car stereo? NEver had a problem with my S4 but my audio stream from Spotify and google maps is pretty bad. Pandora hiccups too but not as bad? What gives? Anyone know? Android 4.4.2?

    EDIT: Fixed my bluetooth stuttering issue by changing runtime from Dalvik to ART!
    Mike is a happy camper now!
    :cool:

    That's great that changing to ART fixed it, Mike. Good to know :)

    I haven't had any problems with Bluetooth, Wicked. I did have multiple problems with ART. If it works, good deal. If you start getting weird things, though, it's probably ART.

    After switching to ART yesterday the phone got hot from the process and it shut off but it cooled off right after and haven't had any issues since. So far so good.

    I installed Xposed yesterday and tweakbox and have applied a few changes to the phone. No issues yet. :D

    wow, you're right! It's on Dalvik now but no bluetooth stuttering like I had before when it was out of the box!

    I took the leap over the weekend. Upgraded from an S4. It was a tough decision between the M8 & G3. I went G3 because of the screen and the fact that I've owned Motorola Droids, HTC DNA & then S4 so I thought I'd give LG's best piece ever a try. I like it a lot so far. Waiting on my Verus Iron Shield case to arrive.

    "Upgraded," from my LG G2. The G2 was the best phone I've ever owned and I've had phones since long before the old StarTacs. ;)

    After half a day of playing around, I have to say I love this phone ever so slightly more. They took an awesome phone--the G2--and made it better (even if only slightly). No, it's not leaps and bounds better but it's better.

    I was considering this or the S5 and everything I read indicated it was a tossup unless the S5 (or G3) had something the other did not. I chose the G3 because I love the G2 and like what LG has been doing with screen technology so far (I have an LG TV and have it calibrated so it's extremely good--and I come from a color printing background and used to teach color theory).

    I love the tap feature to turn the phone on with the G2 and the G3 takes it to another level with the patterns. It also is much more reliable and you don't have to tap as hard, you really just touch it. Much better.

    I still love the buttons on the back but I think I like the power button on the G2 better--was raised a little more and easier to find.

    So far I love the phone.

    You folks talked me into getting one. It arrived yesterday and I've been playing with it ever since. Haven't rooted it yet. I really like my G2 and it's battery life. The G3 camera (software?) is better but the battery life is noticeably shorter. I can't see good enough to appreciate the better display. Nice to have a replaceable battery though. Samsung's in trouble, the laggy touchwiz will be their downfall.
