Radio Shack has the LG G3 for free on Black Friday. Thoughts on that phone? 4-6 months old at this point?

Not a fan of the lg or Samsung android skin. The phone itself has a solid feel and build. Screen is a bit dim though. Might be worth it for free if you're going to go contract route.

I realistically won't get it. I'll wait for Corey to get his Nexus 6 and see what he has to say about it.

At the mall and played around with some phones. Turbo was probably my favorite there

You havent even told me yet if you like it! I think you hate it and don't want to admit you regret getting it.

That's definitely what it is. Corey's such an a-hole.

Lollipop is awesome. My work requires a PIN when adding email to your phone which I hated but now Android has Trusted Devices which turns off the PIN when a bluetooth device of your choice is connected (aka my Pebble). Now I don't have to use Touchdown anymore. The camera is awesome and this thing flies through the menus. I have no complaints right now. Pure Android is so much better than the crap that most non-Nexus phones have on them cluttering everything up.

Sounds like the new OS is great, but what about a phone the size of your face? Are you able to comfortably have it in your pocket and sit?

I was reading this morning that the camera only ranks 6th in camera phones :o

I've read about problems with lollipop with wifi connectivity and other things and that they're already working on 5.1 for all the bug fixes
