BATTERY Li-Ion 3140 mAh battery
The Bad - Let's just get this out of the way.
The case is a glossy plastic. The phone is a finger print magnet. I am slightly self conscious when I let people see the G2- I feel like I have very dirty hands and I'm a chemist which means I am washing my hands regularly. The phone is a dirt and oil magnet.
The other downside is no expandable memory but I have a hard time using 32gb of memory anyways so Im not complaining but some of you out there might want more memory.
The GOOD - Get ready for a long list. I will do my best to put what is important first just in case I bore you and you want to move on.
Battery - The G2 has the longest battery life of any phone I've used. I regularly use my phone for a multitude of tasks. With my iPhone 5 and HTC One I usually could make it through the day without a recharge, but without a doubt I would give those phones a full charge when I slept. It has been 4 days since I have owned the G2 and have only charged it over night twice. All I can say is "WOW". Finally a smart phone with a battery that makes sense.
Software - The LG software is really well thought out and not gimmicky like the Galaxy S4. My favorite feature is the double tap of the screen when the phone is in sleep mode which turns it on, and this feature also works to turn the phone off. No more need to find some long and flat power button on the top of the phone which at times isn't easy to find on the phones because at night you don't know whether your phone is upside down or not. I know it isn't a huge deal to find the power button, but double tapping anywhere on the screen to turn it off/on is a very useful feature. And no it doesn't accidentally turn on in my pocket. The software can detect random touches from the double tap. Other features of the software are a long press of the volume button brings up the camera and it loads within seconds or the notepad for quick notes. I am finding more useful software features as I move along, for example today for my meeting reminder which popped up 15 minutes before the start, a "silent mode" option popped up along and I clicked it and my phone went silent for the scheduled time of the meeting. No more forgetting to turn my phone to silent during meetings. Also when I am in an app and I receive a text, a little box pops up with the text and it has a reply box so I can actually reply to texts without exiting the app I'm currently using. If I don't reply the box disappears within a few seconds just like a notification on the other phones and the app in use just runs like nothing happened. With the large screen the pop up box is non obtrusive. If this was an iPhone the box would take up a significant part of the screen but on the G2 it's just like a notification popping up on any other phone. Again it's a simple feature but it makes sense and I love it. Other than that the phone is running Android 4.2.2 which is really smooth and pleasant. In comparison to iOS6 this makes Apple's software seem dated and unimaginative and compared to the HTC One software it is refined and the One is also running Android 4.1.2.
Screen - Holy cow this screen is the best screen I have ever laid eyes on. The screen is huge and the bezel around the screen is tiny. Whites are white, blacks are black, colors aren't overly saturated and the resolution is on par with the best of the best. Simply put, this is the best screen of the top phones, iPhone, Galaxy S4 and the HTC One. When I show it off to my stubborn iPhone friends all they say is wow it's so clear and big. It's almost as if I'm holding a mini HD TV in my hand.
Sound - For those audiophiles out there, this phone does allow for 24 bit music and it really does sound fantastic. With headphones in this phone blows the competition out of the water and for the record I am an audiophile too. With the speaker the phone is loud, definitely louder than the iPhone 5 but not as loud and clear as the HTC One. In this comparison, the HTC One wins for the speakers but the G2 is no slouch and I find myself listening to my music on the speaker frequently.
Camera - Again, best camera...Read more
I use a galaxy note 8.0 tablet for car and home etc.
I typically switch phones b/c I don't believe there was one phone that had exactly what I want...although each had "some" good stuff to add.
Now, I believe that a phone is a computer..with phone abilities. I'm not alone in this. I'm NOT the guy who says all phones nowadays work fine, and there is no need for improvement or speed increases. I run 2 companies, have a child, and have a hobby competing in dance events on weekends. I often use my camera for video, pics, and watch videos on my phone. I am not a gamer kid. I rely on my phone to be fast, effective, and the software should make it easy for me to operate a business and be dependable with the ability to jot things down quickly, send emails and share stuff often. And I should be able to communicate...AND NOT RUN OUT OF BATTERY too soon.
So, here goes my take on the G2. (I'm on Tmobile)
I have used the G2 for about 4 weeks now. I try out almost every feature and see if it's useful for my purposes. I consider it a better phone than the Galaxy S4, and by preference better than the HTC One. I do consider the HTC one to be an amazing phone of all my choices. Great job HTC.
The screen size is huge relative to the size of the phone itself. I think all phones should be this way. I felt like we should be carrying almost all screen without the extra bulk...and the G2 finally provided that. The extra border is useless to me, and just makes for a bigger device in my pocket and hand, with unusable area. The screen is beautiful. Daylight viewing is much better than all other phones accept the HTC One. I can see this thing clearly in very bright outdoor situations, I can't say that about Samsung GS4. The screen is a pleasurable experience. 5.2 inches doesn't bother me. I'm average size. I could have been just as happy with 5" with no border. Either works. I will say that the Official quick window case makes me like the phone 10x more. The case is super thin, but adds function and protection. The china knockoff cases are too thick for me.
I feel that 5" and 5.2" are acceptable screen sizes. I was happy with the HTC One (4.7") but watching videos were just too small for my taste.
BRIGHT WHITES: I prefer this. And LG hits it right. I enjoy that part of apple devices actually. Clean and bright. LG has that for me.
I give it a 10/10 for a plastic phone. Super sturdy and feels solid in the hand. No creeks and cracks like the cheap Galaxy S4. Samsung gave plastic phones a bad name. LG makes it's plastic phones with quality feel. Now, I do not care for the plastic material in terms of being a little slippery. I use the quickwindow case, but wish they would have used a Nexus material for the back cover. Not a deal breaker, but a wish. Not a huge issue for me.
Not so good. Do the job, but not the best. This is the one area they could have made better, but I assume they ran out of money and had to pick which options mean the most to consumers. Me, I always use Bluetooth (LG HBS730) and don't use the speakers much. I used the HTC one speakers, on occasion, and found they were nice, but not worth the extra ½" in height to the phone. My preference. I wouldn't want them the extra height.
Phone works great. Bluetooth works great. No issues with hearing people with our without Bluetooth. Speaker calls are acceptable when needed.
This phone charges ridiculously fast. They don't tout this feature near enough. I can be at 15%, and plug it in for 20 minutes, and be at 40% with the LG 2A charger (or any 2 amp charger including my car charger). WOW. Now THAT IS a USEFUL feature! A 3,000mAh battery plus quick charging. Much better than HTC and Samsung I used.
Best of any phone I have used. With a full 1080p screen, and never using "battery saver" this phone has a great battery life. A full 4+ hours better than the GS4, and ridiculously longer than the HTC One. I sync 4 email accounts every 15 minutes and listen to music throughout the day.
No lag. Very quick. Much like the HTC One (which I consider the HTC phone to be very nice in that area)
Buttons on the back of the phone:
LG placed the buttons (volume and Power) on the back of the phone. They said its more natural than the standard way with buttons on the side: My take? BRILLIANT. It's very nice to not have ANY buttons on the...Read more
Well the other day I decided to go to At&t and use my upgrade on the Lg g2. Now keep in mind I treat my upgrades as gold and did a TON of research on phones. Ultimately I had it narrowed down to this or the Note 3.
So I pull the trigger on this bad boy and I could not be happier with my decision. For starters the battery life on this thing is an absolute monster. (Yes better than the note 2). This feature is the most important feature for me. 2nd the screen is the perfect size. Someone said it best.... A phablet in a smartphones body. This is a perfect description for this phone. The screen size is right on the money and the display is top notch.
The camera is also very good and allows me to take very clear and clean shots. It even takes fairly decent shots of a moving image. The HTC one still has this one beat on that matter but the battery life on that phone was a joke.
The processer is zippy and can handle anything you throw at it. All of my screens are super smooth and there is no lag at all. This processer also handles the LG UI whit out a hitch. Speaking of the UI it is similar to Samsung's touchwiz but offers more personalization which I love. It even comes with the Vienna choir as some of the sounds.
After using this for a few days I found only one complaint and that was speaker. It is just average. I was very spoiled with the HTC one and I found that the MOTO X also had a good speaker. But if this is the only thing wrong with the phone then I can easily overlook this.
I am very relieved to have found a phone that is perfect for me and I would 100% recommend this phone to anyone.
