In terms of power, the One M9 is the clear winner with the new Snapdragon chip capable of 64-bit processing and new graphics chip, and HTC looks like it has made some impressive modifications to Android 5.0 Lollipop, with heavy customization options, including the ability to edit icons to your preference, which only third-party launchers have done in the past. HTC is looking to hold the crown for best camera, but LG has optical image stabilization on its side, which HTC unfortunately did not include. Battery life could be very close, but because the One M9 has a smaller screen with lower resolution, they promise 21 hours of talk time, which could mean very impressive battery results in other activities as well.

What do you guys think? Does anyone still have their eyes on the G3, or does the M9 destroy just about everything?

  1. I’ve been thinking the same thing. The pros of the LG are:
    Wireless charging
    Better screen
    Less ugly bezels (HTC logo..)

    I fear I’ll have to wait until LG announces the G4… I really wanted to get a new phone, I won’t get an S6 because of the exynos processor. I love my custom roms with AOSP.

    The HTC would’ve been the winner if it had wireless charging and a better looking screen, but it doesn’t.

    Ah well..

  2. I feel the same way the m9 is better but the LG g3 has the higher ratings. I say this because I am a g3 owner and it’s the best phone I ever had gotten QUAD HD, 13 MP CAMERA LAZER FOUS, and the best sound quality out of ever phone. So I would recommend getting the LG g3 because of satisfaction.

  3. Why do you list the G3 as running Android 4.4.4 when almost everybody in Europe and North America have received their Android LG 5.0.1 update?
