IMO the best thing is the camera. I enjoyed the G3 alot more. For the money, there is way better phones out there. Unless of course your going on tab.

Alot of the reviews i have been getting are about the phone overheating, Boot Looping issues due to firmware. i currently have the Note 2 and would like something a bit bigger but the closest (due to price) is the LG G4

What are the most important things to you on a phone, the camera, battery life, display size & quality ect? Give an us an idea and we can tell you the best option or options. If you want the best phone out right now then I'd say without question it's the Galaxy S7 Edge as it has the best of everything except audio since it lacks front facing or stereo speakers.

I use my phone alot as its for School/Work and personal, size of the phone would be great and the only time i listen to music from my phone is Headphones or via bluetooth.  I do not take alot of pictures but i do have multi apps running when im working. (Emails/Word/GPS/Calls)

I would live to have another note but i cannot afford to put out money on a phone, and currently the Lg G4 is 0$.

The LG g4 has probably the best hardware for th price. The Moto G4 Plus is also the same price with a slightly better camera tha the LG according to Dxomark. The G4 has a higher resolution display, more ram, and better cpu. The Moto g4 is 5.5" 1080p, 2gb ram 32gb memory, and Motorola has a better update track record. Even though they've been faltering in the states since acquired by Lenovo their updates have continued to be spot on in Canada. From the sounds of things either or will do just fine for your needs, especially at your budget and their price points of 360 on tab. The LG g4 1.5 generations old so even if LG is good about updates it's going to likely stop before the Moto g4.

Goran Motorola has definitely not been spot on with updates as the Moto X Play has not recieved a security update since March 1st of this year which is ridiculous IMO.

Ah forgot about those. Still getting used to monthly security updates. I meant regular os updates since it does have 6.0.1 when even the pure stateside is still 6.0 even straight from Motorola.

Goran, according to GSMArena, the 32GB version of the Moto G4 Plus has 3GB RAM.

I am not familiar with the extent to which LG loads their phones with bloatware, but if having a long battery life is a priority, go with the LG G4 since its removable battery can be replaced with an aftermarket extended-life battery. I have one for my Galaxy S3 and it is fantastic despite the bulk it adds

For what your using it for either of Goran suggestions are going to be fine for that so basically I'd say visit your local Koodo kiosk and just get a feel for each in hand and go from there as chances are you'll be happy with either. I personally would lean towards the Moto G Plus as Motorola displays are some of the best displays I've used as they very punchy and bright where the LG ones always look a little dull or washed out in comparison.
