    Well I made the biggest mistake ever. I went over to Android because I didn't seem to like the iphones in the store. i went top of the line LG G3 and while its a nice phone the Android OS sucks big time. Its very cumberson and not very intutive. Having gotten it on the NEXT plan from ATT I am paying $25 a month for misery. Has anybody else made the same mistake and just bitten the bullet and pay full price just to come back to the Iphone? I would take my iPhone 5 back in a heart beat if I could over the crap I got now

    I had an android device a few years ago. Not for me used it until I got aggravated enough and got a used iPhone until I was up for a renewal.

    I did after I bought my galaxy s5. It's a great phone but I always end up back on iOS. It was painful cause I had to use my iPhone 4 until my 6 arrived.

    I regretted getting the Note 3. Nice phone, the OS ruined it for me.

    I rock pretty much pure android like nexus or moto or HTC's phones with sense and I love it. Love android. I also love iOS though and that's why I've got a 6 coming. Android isn't for every one and the same goes for iOS.

    I left Apple when the 4S was announced. I actually like Android and still own multiple devices.

    I loved my Note 3 until Samsung forced the kitkat update on me, then it all messed up. I paid full price to get back on iPhone and I must say I don't regret it.

    Agreed, I loved the 5.5inch screen on the Note. Went back to my iPhone 5 for a year after getting headaches from the Android OS, and now using the 6 as my daily driver.

    I did the same thing last year and sold my 5S for the Nexus 5. Man that was a huge mistake I couldn't even use the Nexus for a week without yearning for my iPhone again. Now I see the Nexus 6 and lollipop and I'm at the same point wanting it again but I know I couldn't leave my iPhone cause there are a few things I would miss that Android does annoyingly or doesn't have at all.

    When did you get the device? If you bought it in the last week you can return it and get your upgrade. They actually extended there return policy till January 15th for the holiday season.

    Its not the android OS, it is the crap LG skin that is used. Not to mention the g3 was kind of a meh phone other than the screen which even that is not as good as QHD displays from samsung. You poor soul lol.

    Preaching to the choir but once you get that LG (or HTC or Samsung), et al -- you're buying into the Android (Google) ecosystem. There's plenty to love and hate about it but here's the good news: It's nice to have a choice! (And mine is the iPhone and its ecosystem.)

    As much as I love my iPhone, I love me a good android phone, like the nexus or the one plus one. Right now, the pros of having an iPhone in my situation make me having an iPhone better than me having an android.

    Done this a few times. Last one was the Note 3. Loved it for a day then the novelty wore off. Kept it a week, then went back to 5S, and use an iPhone 6 now. Never again.

    How long have you had the phone? Do you like to tinker with your phones to set them up for your own use?

    If you did not have the phone long enough (at least a month or more) and you do not like to tinker with your phones then Android is not for you.

    I used an HTC One GPE for a month and I really liked it. The only two downsides were battery life and unavailability of apps that I am accustomed to on the App Store.

    I'm assuming you're past your 14 day return period?

    I've learned my lesson about selling my iPhone when switching to Android. I always keep my iPhone because I know I'll be back. I'm using a Note 4 now but my trusty iPhone 6 is waiting patiently for my return!

    So, I'm trying to understand... If you're going back to the iPhone anyway, why bother switching back and forth? It seems needlessly expensive, no?

    Because they aren't fully happy with IOS, otherwise there would be no need for constant switching between OS. I could see switching between iPhones 6/6+

    I think you should give it a chance the G3 is an amazing phone it takes a few weeks to get used to the new system.

    Because you're a smartphone enthusiast and you want to play around with the other platforms? It might be expensive, but it's really the only way to speak knowledgeably about all the other OSs.

    I would love to have a second device running Android to complement the 6, but I would much rather have just one device, so I always go iOS. As much as I like vanilla Android, it can't beat iOS in my opinion. The 6 is everything I want in a phone plus more

    I bought the G3 back in July. Everything started off great with excellent battery life. Within about 3 weeks the device started to overheat and I was going through 2 batteries every 8 to 10 hours. I sent the device back to LG and it made no difference. I got the 6 and have had no issues since. I'm sorry for the issues you are having, if you can unload the G3, do it if possible.

    I love Android. My only lingering gripe is that there has yet to be an Android camera as good as an iPhone. I've been on a Galaxy S3 for a couple years, then briefly had a Note 4 but returned it. Getting a 6 Plus tomorrow. Camera and battery life are two of my biggest requirements in a phone and the 6 Plus seems to be just what the doctor ordered.

    A few months ago when I was shopping for a new phone, I was interested in the LG G3. On paper it looked great. The camera lag put me right off though. And as much as everyone said that LG made a good Android skin, I didn't like it at all.
