LG G2 Review
9 May 2014
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.
Summary: LG used to be cool. The Chocolate, En-V, and other phones were household names back when messaging phones and QWERTY keyboards ruled the world, and LG’s hit devices spawned multiple generations of imitators. But LG has struggled to replicate that success with its smartphones, despite quietly releasing solid devices year after year.
Pros: Beautiful display, Blistering performance, Great battery life
Summary: One of the most powerful Android phones on the market right now, the LG G2 may not have the looks of its rivals -- its button placement could annoy some users -- but it has a fantastic display, superb battery life and a lightning-fast processor.
Cons: Might be too large for some; No microSD card slot.
Excerpt: The LG G2 is the supercomputer of smartphones — at least for the time being. It’s the first phone in the U.S. to sport a Snapdragon 800 system-on-a-chip with a quad-core 2.26GHz CPU. It has two gigs of RAM. It has the 4G LTE and the NFC. It may be faster than your computer. All the phones and the processors and the miniaturization and the convergence and the cellular technology in history has been leading up to this phone.
Pros: Lightning-fast and fluid performance. Outstanding battery life. Beautiful 1080p screen with 423 pixels per inch. The 5.2-inch screen size feels right. Good video and image quality with optical stabilization system.
Cons: You’ll want to replace the keyboard immediately. Full of gimmicks and poorly implemented features. You’ll wish the buttons were in their normal places instead of on the back. No MicroSD slot. Possibly haunted. Moves around on tables by itself.
Conclusion: From the spec sheet to the final product, it’s clear that the G2 is LG’s best effort yet. The company has gone all-out to pack the handset with brutally fast, top-end hardware alongside a strong suite of software features that rivals the Samsung Galaxy S4 . LG’s True-HD IPS+ LCD display is one of the nicest I’ve seen, fitting edge-to-edge thanks to the relocation of the power and volume buttons to the back of the device.
Conclusion: The LG G2 is assuredly the company's best Android phone yet. We were bullish on the also very good Optimus G Pro, but the G2 is all that and more in a more mainstream size. The display is top notch, performance is fast and fluid, the camera is excellent and the rear buttons actually work nicely.
Pros: Large and lovely full HD IPS display, great camera, fast new CPU, helpful software.
