Summary: The reason I'm giving two stars instead of one is due to error on my part. I didn't realize that this is the international model for the Nexus 5 when I ordered the phone. To my surprise, I opened the package to find a USB plug-in adapter made for an international outlet and a manual primarily printed in French. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE IF YOU LIVE IN THE U.S!! The D820 model is for the U.S , and the D821 is for everywhere else.
Summary: Phone was great for the first couple of days then a automatic update faulted the phone so that I couldn't receive texts or several texts would come through all in 1 go ages after they were sent. Also couldn't send texts. I had this phone less than 1 week and had to return as the technical team couldn't fix it either. I have now ordered the Samsung s4 in black and know this is good as my son has one.
Pros: Quick, Brilliant HD Screen, Good Speakers, Quad Core, Light, Latest Android, 2GB RAM, 16GB Memory, Battery Life, No Card Slot
Summary: It's a good phone, don't get me wrong. I just don't like using the Google apps and software. What I don't like: Having to use Google hangouts for the texting app. You can't put apps into groups, you can't organize the apps to how you would like them to be. Apart from that, It's ok. Comfortable to hold and use. The back has a nice texture so it does not slip out your hand.
Summary: I will start off by stressing this is not my first Android phone - it was my 6th after a HTC Desire, Desire HD, HTC Sensation, Galaxy S2 and then the Galaxy S3 before getting this phone. Oh and I also have a Nexus 7 so I knew what to expect with vanilla Android etc but still, this thing was terrible and I'll explain why.
Summary: This phone is a true gem. Great 5" screen, latest KitKat Android OS, great camera, NFC, wireless charging.. you name it! It has been renowned worldwide for being the AFFORDABLE smart phone. That is the most catching aspect of this phone, the fact that it is a competitor to some of the best phones on the market at such a streamline price.
Summary: I cant believe google/lg still havent sorted out this horrible grainy washed out screen issue...and the worst thing is you cant even fix it ...I guess people that havent used a hd amoled screen on a samsung etc wont know the difference... but I dont know why they havent fixed this issue..can be fixed if the device is rooted but thats up to the buyer if they wants to risk messing with their device..
Excerpt: "...was prepared to buy the LG G2. That was until, however I saw that experts where saying that these devices, the G2 and the Nexus 5 where similarly priced, with the only main difference was the camera and the button arrangement... Sadly however I am still struck, to why these phones now have a 5 week waiting list for them and I now cannot wait to upgrade again.. Look and Feel: One of the biggest benefits to this phone is certainly the way it feels ...
Summary: Честно говоря очень удивлён столь хорошим отзывам на этот телефон. Пользуюсь уже 3 месяца, и очень об этом жалею. До того был iPhone 3gs, и не смотря на то что 3gs давно устарел, по "usability" он мне нравится гораздо больше. Постараюсь раскрыть немного подробнее. Плюсы 1) Качество дисплея. 1080p, контрастность, действительно умная автоматическая регуляция яркости - просто супер.
Excerpt: Купил телефон сегодня принесли сначала телефон начал его смотреть,нашёл битые пиксели мне его поменяли сразу без проблем,но на этом всё не закончилось уже по дороге через Lte секунд за 10 даже меньше скачал 4.4.3 обновление очень быстро, но это фигня обновился и в конце написал какую то ошибку ,я там что то нажал включился и показал что он обновился до 4.4.3,в метро случайно начал снимать на камеру и начал снимать панораму и он завис,и я долго держал кнопку выключения и...
