Good price and a great phone EXCEPT that it is a power hog and the battery life is absurdly short.

If I have all apps off and no usage, I get around the same amount I get with my other Android phones, with a 3,000 maH Battery. I get around 48-72 hours just idle. If I use it for gaming, surfing or chatting. It tends to use the battery pretty quick. But I think its this way with most Androids. Androids are just know for this. They get better with each new update. I'd make sure your is updated to Android 5.02. I seem to have gotten longer battery life than I did with 4.4. For me this phone is a BEAST!!

Is the camera on the G3 a lot better than the G2? I got a manufacturer refurbished G2 phone that looked brand new. However, it was very craptastic! It got super hot when doing anything,battery life was abysmal and the 1st Gen Moto G camera seemed to be par with it.

I am using freedom pop sim with nexus 6 and sorry to report that the service is very choppy. Does not work most of the time so even though the phone is cheap I would advice not to go with Freedompop.

G3 has a good camera compared to G2

I've used my G3 for over a year and still loving it. I am not a heavy gaming person so I don't need to get a new phone every year, but G3 has a decent camera and doesn't have the boot loop issue that many G4 has. If I am not browsing the web heavily or streaming videos, my phone can easily last all day with just some phone calls, texts, or music listening. However, if I use it heavily watching videos and browsing or GPS, then yes, the battery will drain up in a few hours, but that's with all the phones I have before. I don't think G3 is worse in battery life than my other phones in the past.

This Phone is LTE/CDMA, Not GSM HSPA+ like your phone. If you have choppy service, you might check into activating that phone using Freedompop's CDMA program instead or make sure the phone is unlocked so it uses both AT&T & T-Mobile's Network(if locked). I live in Seattle, and I get Great CDMA LTE. I tried a GSM sim up here and it worked great, My CDMA phones just worked better. It is all based on location. To see the coverage on CDMA-

Here is the Current Coverage map for the Sprint CDMA Program or FreedomPop Branded phones-

The Great thing about the Nexus 6 you have. Like the Iphone 6 and the Nexus 5. You can use that phone with GSM and CDMA. You might have to get someone to add the phone to Sprint system before you activate. You will also need to purchase yourself a Sprint sim-

After you have everything set up, Activate on FreedomPop's BYOD portal. The Nexus 6 is a Great phone when comes to using it on CDMA and GSM.

Thanks

PS-Most people don't realize this but Freedompop is a MNVO like company. They purchase data in Blocks. For the CDMA program, they use Sprint for LTE/CDMA. For GSM they use AT&T predominately and T-Mobile when there is no AT&T. Also with GSM there is no LTE, it is only Edge, HSPA and HSPA+. The GSM sim is also a Global sim and can be used-

Yeah, choppy service would be because of the host networks-- ATT and Tmobile. The only issue on freedompop's end would be the UK IP address that makes some region locked apps not work, like pandora and pokemon go. Speedtest indicates that it's faster than my Fairpoint DSL was.

The G2 and the G4 both had issues, which is why I specifically chose to buy a G3. (Plus they dropped IR on the G4) IMO the G3 was the best LG device in recent years. Although I have yet to really look at the newer stuff. Maybe next year, but so far I have no reason to replace this phone.

The big difference between the G2 and G3 cameras is when you are using video and the laser focus. I specifically wanted a better video experience and this phone does 4k video recording.

They are all 13 megapixels (G2, G3, and the Moto G) but there's some differences in aperture etc. that are slightly different.

I'm actually planning to buy this phone for my teen. It's a great device!

Any idea when they will add Asian countries like the Philippines? They have been claiming coming soon for over a year now.

I thought FP uses GSM and not CDMA.

I believe this phone is already locked to FP so you wouldn't need FP SIM card, correct?

I have a FP SIM card with basic plan so it will be useless. If you buy this phone, do you have to pay 19.99 activation fee?How about if you want to port you number? Is there a fee?

FP uses CDMA on Sprint for all their phones. The "Global" SIM cards they sell are the exception, those are GSM. All their phones can be downgraded to "free" service that gives 500MB data. The global GSM SIMs are only 200MB free data.

They are locked to FP (can be unlocked by request after 6-months) and need a Sprint SIM card which is included.

You don't have to pay activation fee, that's only for using your own Sprint phone.

Sorry, I've no experience with number porting.
