Does anyone have any comments about the screens breaking on this phone. My local repair shop says it is $200 to replace the screen and once it breaks you HAVE to get it fixed. One of my friends has already had her screen break but I do not know how. I love to throw my phone in my back pocket but I think that isn't an option for this phone.
I am torn between a tried and true Samsung and the G3.
My screen shattered due to a dog chewing on the phone (the rubber cover suggested, "chew toy!"). The LCD was also damaged, and there were a couple of small dings in one edge of the front bezel. The back was undamaged, due to the TPU rubber case.
I was impressed by the user interface, it was very clean and smooth. LG G3 came through with the software and hardware but the plastic casing on the phone just kills it for me. Time and time again LG almost nails the perfect phone but they have to miss something.
Nice try LG. Hopefully you make something more durable next year 🙂.
If you buy this phone make sure you buy the best case you can or you'll be replacing it very soon.
In contrast, I found this offering from LG a "refreshing" change from status quo in pushing metal. I've owned cellphones for over 27 years and plastic has never been an issue before Steve Jobs made his infamous pitch and it hasn't been an issue for me... (continues)
