Summary: LG has made some really good moves in the last couple of years, clawing their way out of relative obscurity in the Smartphone industry to a place where the upcoming launch of their latest handset – the LG G2 – was actually building the same sort of hype and consumer interest normally seen only for devices from Samsung and HTC – often seen as the leading manufacturers in Android.
Pros: Beautiful Screen, Blazingly Fast Performance, Great Camera
Cons: Slick Plastic case, Sometimes over the top Android skinning, Keyboard
Summary: With that massive screen and super-fast quad core CPU, the G2 leaves practically every other Android phone in its wake. It's so powerful that we couldn't get it to stutter no matter what we threw at it, so if you're an advanced mobile user who enjoys pushing new hardware to its limits, LG's latest phone is going to be right up your street.
Summary: The G2 is a really good device pockmarked by a few poor design choices. From the vivid screen to the ultra-fast processor to the sharp camera and outstanding battery life, the device is a powerhouse and a spec-hunter’s dream phone. With a case and some patience, this could be one of the year’s best Android devices.
Excerpt: The LG G2 is a solid phone that performed among the best on many of our lab tests.
Pros: Good battery life, Excellent display quality, Good camera quality, Excellent performance - great for the latest Android games and visual apps, Easy to type on, Comfortable to hold in hand, Easy to read on, Very easy to navigate
LG G2 review: this is the Android you’re looking for
8 March 2014
Conclusion: Let’s wrap up. LG’s G2 is a triumph. It’s one of the fastest phones on the market and for considerably less than the S4 and Note III, you’re getting a smartphone that can handle anything you throw at it. The only downside, and ironically what LG has marketed the most, is the oddly-placed volume/power keys located on the rear of the phone under the camera lens.
Excerpt: The LG G2 is an impressive Android phone and one that has a cool, almost novel hardware feature: its power and volume buttons are on the back of the phone. Most phones have them on the sides, but the G2 bucks the trend by moving all buttons to the back and in terms of aesthetics, it works. But as for functionality, it’s a loss. Imagine how difficult it is to adjust the volume. You need to hold the phone with two hands to do it comfortably.
Conclusion: It doesn't take a genius to see that LG needs this handset to be a big hitter and there's a lot of interesting new features that mean this looks, feels and performs up there - if not better - than the top phones already on the shelves. Rear buttons aside, the overall the design isn't revolutionary but then when was the last time we saw a phone design that really blew us away?
Conclusion: Now that I have covered my experience with the G2 as well as its performance stats, has my opinion of the phone changed from when it came in? Well yes, in both good and bad ways. When the G2 came in I had heard about its good battery life but I was surprised at how well the phone performed as a whole. The Snapdragon 800 processor did extremely well in our benchmarks but most importantly all through the time I tested the G2 I didn’t have any lag issues with the phone.
Excerpt: Where the Nexus 5 is the pure Android enthusiasts crown jewel of 2013 and the latest iteration of what the perfect (mobile) Google experience is, the LG G2 is what a true spec hound is after. While it is indeed far from pure Android and marred by a manufacturer skin (and hampered by slow updates), is the hardware inside enough to outweigh the aforementioned issues? Because let’s be honest, the hardware is class leading.
