Hiya,

I recently (This week) purchased a Locked to O2 Refurbished LG G3 for £192 total, on an o2Refresh deal.
The phone is in fairly pristine condition, is covered by a 12 month warranty, however has no original box/charger/accessories.
O2 will unlock the phone for free for me and its actually an amazing bargain.

However, I have wanted a OnePlus One for the longest time, I would at least get the 64gb edition (as no micro sd slow) and i like the fact that it has CM12, No bloatware, and 3GB of ram.

What would you do?

My LG G3 has a 64gb microsd card in there, and is a great phone at a good price.
Many of the reviews I've seen v the OnePlus One and the LG G3 on youtube, compare the cost difference between the handsets themselves.
This is not true in my case, should I go for the OnePlus One or keep the G3???

thanks for your time/suggestions.

I have a OnePlus One, and it's a fantastic phone, however, if you are a Vodafone or O2/Tesco user, you should bear in mind that 4G won't work, as the phone lacks band 20, which these carriers use for their 4G/LTE service.

In terms of power, the LG G3 is comparable, and on top of that you can root it and put CM12 on it. From what I've heard it works really well. If you are a Three or EE user, then I can recommend it. I hear bad things about OnePlus support, so as a preventative measure, I would get yourself a tempered glass cover, and a TPU case for it, should you decide to go for the One.

I think it would be a very slight downgrade to be honest. I have the G3 and don't consider it to have bloatware on. Do you not think the G3 screen is amazing? What brightness settings you using? 100% is too much and the default auto brightness is always too low, I use Lux app.

G3 > 1+1

1+1 Is on par with the G2

I brought my g2 at £150 so at £79 less than the 1+1 the g2 is effectively better value

As for the price you're paying for the g3, it is better than the 1+1 in almost everyway

I think the build quality is better on the 1+1, just seems more solid and premium.

I had a G2 for the past year and the cheap plastic body didn't age very well (although the G3 does seem better made than the G2).

i would stick to the LG g3 , think about the hassle you would be in if it requires repair. in addition i wouldn't sacrifice one of the major important features of a phone "signal" , by not having the correct bands

This is false, there are pros and cons to both the 1+1 and G3, which share the same specs for the most part:

LG G3
Quad HD display
Metal frame
MicroSD expandable
13MP Cam with OIS
Band 20 for Voda/O2/Tesco LTE

OnePlus One
3GB RAM
Up to 64GB storage
Slightly bigger battery than LG
Lower res (1080p) display = slightly better performance
Cheaper!

In your case, seeing as you are with O2, I'd probably stick with the LG G3, as there are probably more attractive benefits to owning one, including LTE use! In terms of support, you can leverage O2 as well. To be honest, if you were dealing directly with LG, they are not much better than OnePlus support.
