    Having used a blackberry since 2005 it is a quantum leap. I never did try bb10 i just didn't really want to deal with the hassle. T mobile is my carrier, and well they had a falling out and do not sell blackberry any longer so i just jumped in with both feet. Good sized 4g LTE unlimited data plan though its throttled after reaching certain bench marks, Tmo hotspot..... Yeah I'm m loving it

    Went into Best Buy this evening to look for a new printer and finally had a chance to spend some time with the G3. Beautiful device. Felt great in hand. The rear button setup would take a little getting used to but I can see the appeal. Nothing really stood out as far as the UI goes, but all the newer devices are so similar in that aspect I didn't really expect that to sway my opinion one way or the other.
    Would I have purchased this device over my S5 had it been available at the time and side by side the way the S5 & M8 were? Ehhh....that's hard to say, probably not. Impressive nevertheless.

    tap'n on my S5

    Upgraded from the LG G2. Had a S4 and should have gotten the S5 instead of the G2.

    You must be a heavy user. With the stock battery, when I put mine on the charger at night I've still got at least 20% left. I'm getting great battery life with my S4.

    You should probably go into Best Buy or your carrier and spend a little time with both of them. You really can't go wrong with either device so to be honest it's going to boil down to personal preference between these two models. The people that own the G3 love their device and the same goes for those that own the S5. I couldn't be happier my S5. Good luck with your decision!
