Video: LG G3 vs. Galaxy S5 vs. HTC One (M8)

Our LG G3 review is on the way, don’t worry, but as we put our final touches on it, we wanted to continue showing you all there is to see about this incredible phone. We gave you our 25+ tips and tricks for the LG G3 yesterday, ran through a series of features on Monday, and now have a better comparison of the device to the Samsung Galaxy S5 and the HTC One (M8) to show off.

At this time, these are the three flagships of the moment. Sure, the new Moto X is still on the way, as is the Note 4, but for now, if you are considering a smartphone purchase, these are the three phones you would look at. 

Each carries top-of-the-line specs, though at least on paper, the G3 tops the other two. It has a Quad HD display compared to their full HD displays, 3GB RAM versus 2GB, and a 13MP camera with OIS+. The build is still plastic, but has been given a brushed metal coating that feels much better than the Galaxy S5’s dimples and is also not as slippery as the One (M8)’s real metal exterior. It packs the same processor as the Galaxy S5, uses a rear button placement for volume and power, utilizes unique software features, and isn’t all that much bigger than the other two even with its 5.5-inch front panel.

With that said, there are a couple of things that could be downers for potential G3 owners. First, the display, even though it weighs in with a resolution of 2560×1440, is not as good as the Super AMOLED on the GS5 or the Super LCD 3 on the One (M8). That’s not to say that it is bad, it just isn’t as good in terms of color reproduction as the others. The UI tends to experience a stutter here and there as well, but so does the GS5.

Overall, the G3 is the ultimate smartphone package, one that we can’t wait to tell you more about in our review. For now, check out the full comparison of Android’s three best phones of the moment.

    I was actually waiting for Note 4 and after S5 and the no rooting or permanent void on warranty KNOX, I seriously want to give up on it (Samsung phones need to be rooted to remove all those bloat and Greenify the apps for the phone to work properly…otherwise they lag, overheat and kill the battery within the hour)

    Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far the best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6474 this – 4 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $77 per hour. I work through this link, go to tech tab for work detail

    Getting the LG G3 because I hate Samsung. They make themselves look like idiots with their ads lol Making fun of the iPhone is fun but Samsung is just retarded and I’d rather not have a phone that looks like a huge bandaid.

    Kellen, You should have just made this video the G3 review. Thats all you talked about. Didnt key in on any of the killer features of the M8 except the design. Maybe the M8 should have been left out of the video all together. You treated it like the ugly stepchild, When really It was the best piece of modern tech that you had on the table.

    I have the G3 and M8 and I love both for different reasons. I had the S5 for about a week and returned it. It just seemed so mediocre when compared to the M8. Now I have the G3 and I love it for it’s camera and form factor.
