Should I upgrade to Android 5.0?

I have the LG G3(Verizon)...I'm debating whether or not to take the upgrade to 5.0 when it becomes available. I'm looking for some input from any fellow Android enthusiast or users running Lollipop....on the G3 or any other phone. Thanx in advance

The reviews of Android 5.0 seem quite positive. Here's one from Engadget:

Android 5.0 Lollipop review: Google's biggest mobile update in years
http://www.engadget.com/android-lollipop-review/

"It's hard not to be impressed by Google's efforts in building Android 5.0. It not only introduced a completely new design, but it also managed to squeeze in a boatload of great features that improve the Android experience. Lollipop brings more intuitive notifications, improvements to performance and battery life, clever security features and developer tools for better apps. It's one of the biggest upgrades Android has seen yet, and it's definitely worth making the jump when your device eventually gets it."

I have Android 5.0 on my Nexus 7. You can read the many reviews available online for a more complete picture of 5.0 Lollipop, but my personal opinion is that it isn’t a huge leap forward from Android 4.4. There are UI differences, the material design looks nice, and it runs well for the most part. I have experienced two issues with 5.0 though: there was a problem with video playback on YouTube (perhaps elsewhere as well, but I only experienced it on YouTube) that has since been patched in an update, and there is a memory leak issue that can cause the OS to shut down apps. I would wait until the memory leak issue is addressed before upgrading. You really aren’t missing anything earth shattering with 5.0. It’s a generally nice evolutionary update of Android, not a revolutionary new version of the OS.
