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?
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.
Summary: The LG G2 phone is a high performance smartphone that will impress you and comes at a very competitive price. The mobile has a big display screen and delivers an amazing camera with interesting features. This phone illustrates the continuous improvement we’ve seen in LG phones.
Pros: Very good performance performance, a beautiful screen with very good camera.
Cons: It is physically big and does not have an external SD memory card storage.
Summary: The strength of Android phones is in their power, their size, their longevity and their rich feature set. The LG G2 impresses on every front. Judging software is a little trickier, since different users will like different things – if you're a fan of TouchWiz, for example, you'll probably buy a Samsung phone over any other manufacturer.
