Disappointing

Lobo, Amazon
6 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this phone in June 2013. Today, one year later, I have experienced good and bad things - unfortunately there are more cons than pros, so I did not recommend LG to my mum and dad, who just bought Motorola Moto G (I'll soon review it, but seems much better than my Nexus 4, even with a smaller configuration), and neither will I buy my next phone LG.

Buggy, fragile and poorly conceived

Towerhil, CNET
6 January 2014
  • Summary: As a flagship phone I expect a lot more. the silver trim easily rubs off, and the "gorilla glass" is nothing of the sort. I'd read reviews of it cracking after falling in a car footwell etc, but reasoned I'd never cracked a phone. Well, this cracked in my suit pocket on a quiet commute. I bought a rubber case for it thereafter. It was running very hot at the time if that's relevant.
  • Pros: The pros are it's fast, with a smooth screen action. You can do wireless charging, wired charging being the reason I had to ditch my old phone.
  • Cons: It's very fragile and doesn't stay looking good.

No Intuitive Controls

  • Summary: Just bought this phone. Quick-start manual doesn't have enough information. No instructions on how to close out web pages, make/answer phone calls, text, nothing. When I tried to find and download the user manual, all that came up was the "take a tour" page on Google Chrome. Could be a great phone, but not much use if you can't get the information to use it.

Advertised as 4G but actually is 3G.

G2x owner, LG Electronics Ratings and Reviews
1 July 2013
  • Summary: Very dissappointed that it is one the laest phones on the market and yet it is not 4G and or LTE even though it is advertised otherwise. I owned a G2x for 2 years and it was perfect with 4G, great features, good memory and SD slot. I decided to give the Nexus 4 a try because I had a great experience with my LG G2x, therfore I thought the Nexus 4 would be beyond that since the G2x was made a couple years back but I was wrong as it lacks 4g capabilities and SD slot...
  • Pros: great previous lg phone

Good case but useless screen protector

Aman Soman, Amazon
4 February 2014
  • Summary: The rubber skin case is good but the screen protector is not well designed as per the Nexus 4. It does not have a cut on the upper left side which hides the sensors and result in improper functioning. I have to remove the screen protector and I feel like I wasted my money on it.

Screen shattered...

Stephen Williams, Amazon
25 October 2013
  • Summary: brought it for a friend and within a week she dropped it from a low height and the screen shattered. Searching on the internet it seems others have had similar problems with the screen easily shattering when compared to other makes.

Protects but looks grubby

Irene Shone, Amazon
10 October 2013
  • Summary: This protects the phone very well in the hands of a teenage boy but it got really dirty and grubby looking very quickly and even bleach would not clean it. White is not a good colour for something you hold in your hands all the time.
