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: Finally – an LG phone we want. That’s not to say LG makes bad phones, we’ve just never fancied ourselves as mid-range phone chasers. Neither the LG Optimus 4X HD nor the Optimus G reached our shores in time to matter in the flagship wars, but the winds have changed. Introducing the LG G2 – quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 internals coupled with 2GB RAM and an impressive 3000mAh battery is just the beginning.
Pros: Class leading screen, Great battery, Strong camera experience
Cons: Heavy UI, Plastic build, No expandable storage
Summary: LG has truly surprised us. The G2 is undoubtedly worthy of the flagship tag. A gorgeous display that leaves the rivals far behind, form factor that makes all other 5-inch smartphones feel some bit of shame, camera that does very well in low light conditions and the big battery will last you almost two days on a single charge. Perhaps, the only niggle is the weird power and volume key placement, but that isn't something you cannot get used to.
Pros: Amazing display, Brilliant form factor, Thin bezel around the screen reduces footprint, Very good camera in low light, Battery life is good
Cons: Body still relies on plastic, Focusing takes time in low light
Summary: Cutting-edge innovator. This smartphone wants to boost itself to the forefront of our Top 10 with awesomely swift hardware and rearranged physical buttons. The LTE phone has a good chance of accomplishing that with the Snapdragon 800 and a Full HD IPS screen. However, it must first overcome a few obstacles.
Pros: Extreme performance, IPS screen, Outstanding battery runtime, Full HD videos with 60 fps, Innovative key arrangement, LG has added useful features to Android and the innovative "wake-up gesture" seems very handy.
Cons: Non-expandable storage, Non-removable battery, A micro SD slot and a removable battery would undisputedly boost the smartphone to 1 st place of the Top 10.
Summary: The G2 took what I loved from the tablet-smartphone category, and crammed it into a regular smartphone. A big one, granted, but not an unnecessarily huge one. LG's smartphone screens are among the best, and its newest phone continues to lead its peers. This time around, however, it's got the battery to do it justice.
Pros: Amazing battery life, Bright, expansive 1080p screen, It has buttons on the back
Cons: Inconsistent camera, Redundant software additions, It has buttons on the back
Excerpt: After successfully teaming up with Google for the Nexus 4, LG stormed the market in 2013 with its own flagship smartphone called the G2. In our initial LG G2 review we wanted to see if it can take on the iPhone 5S, Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1 . It could. It more than could becoming our number one smartphone of 2013 and into 2014. But now things have changed with the LG G3 launching. Read : LG G3 release date, price, specs and new features for more.
Excerpt: If LG is going to make a success of its premier G2 smartphone, complete with 5.2-inch screen, it's going to need to battle it out hard with Samsung, Apple and Sony while trying not to make the same mistakes as HTC - like not spending enough on good quality marketing from the very beginning. That might sound sort of easy, but LG has yet to win people over with its smartphones despite many of them being solid and well thought-out phones.
Pros: Visually appealing, feels great as a phone, sound quality for music is insanely good, fast and slick (Snapdragon S800), decent battery life
Cons: Camera isn't as good as either of the main competitors, fairly expensive, no microSD expansion
