Review LG G2 Smartphone

 

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...

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

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

LG G2 review: Recommended, unless you need storage expansion

 

LG has done a great job with the 5.2-inch G2, whose battery life is a big plus. The power button placement is odd, but the G2's main drawback is its lack of MicroSD storage expansion. If don't need this, then it's well worth shortlisting.

Superb 5.2-inch screen ; Excellent battery life ; Some clever software features

No MicroSD slot for storage expansion ; Non-removable backplate ; Rear-mounted power button

Spec-tacular

 

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...

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

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

LG G2 vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 3 vs. Sony Xperia Z1: The triumvirate

 

We've been enjoying an open season for a while, and yeah, the shootouts will keep on coming but it's a different kind of game now. What we have here is exactly the type that can, and will, see the hunted become the hunter.

It's the match of the season and the winner takes home the most coveted title. After successfully fending off the Apple iPhone 5s and the Nokia Lumia 1020 in the battle of the platforms, the LG G2 had to defend the title on its home Android turf. And...

LG G2 (T-Mobile)

 

The Android-powered LG G2 is both super-sized and super-powerful, but it doesn't quite have the chops to unseat the mighty Galaxy S4 as our Editors' Choice smartphone on T-Mobile.

Huge screen. Super-fast processor. Multitasking.

Processor benefit doesn't play out in apps. Some bugs. Not the best voice quality.

Pricing and Conclusions T-Mobile eliminated the standard 2-year contract and carrier subsidies, opting for more straightforward device payment options. You can pay $99.99 up front for the G2, with 24 monthly payments of $21. If you cancel early, you'll...

LG G2 vs HTC One: Game of phones

 

The LG G2 is the new pretender to the Android smartphone throne and one that enters the fray with a bang. Well aware of the challenge ahead - and determined to make it an opportunity - the G2 comes duly armed. Four Krait 400 cores on the Snapdragon 800...

There's more than one way to say which one of the two beastly smartphones we reviewed today is better, but that won't necessarily mean it's the phone you'll want. Adding the wins and ties together in our test looks like the objective, fact-based...
