Llevamos mucho tiempo diciendo que LG estaba en la senda correcta para resurgir de sus cenizas y definitivamente con el G2 lo ha hecho. La compañía coreana ha sabido ponerse a la altura de los tope de gama con un terminal que no tiene absolutamente...

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 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...

LG G2 review

 

There are a lot of smartphones out there now. You know this. To add to the confusion, many companies are now parading out multiple top-drawer phones:

Amazing battery life ; Bright, expansive 1080p screen ; It has buttons on the back

Inconsistent camera ; Redundant software additions ; It has buttons on the back

A combination of high-level specifications and great battery life make the G2 one of the best flagship Android phones out there. However, those rear-facing buttons won't be for everyone.

LG G2 review: Beautiful monster

 

Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support, Quad-band 3G with HSPA; Penta-band LTE cat4, 5.2" 16M-color 1080p True HD IPS Plus FullHD capacitive touchscreen, Corning Gorilla Glass 2 display protection, Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean; LG Optimus UI, Quad-core 2.26...

The hardware controls at the back take some time getting used to, Below average loudspeaker performance, No microSD slot, Non-replaceable battery

The LG G2 is not just the company's next flagship. It is LG's hope of getting their best shape back after quite a few uninspiring attempts. And this time around, the stakes are higher than ever as the competition out there is in its top form too. The...

LG G2 hands-on: First look

 

It's been a well documented and, some might say, overly-teased affair but it has come to an end. The LG G2 flagship is upon us here in New York city and it brings a ton of innovation in one of the most compact over-5" bodies out there on the market.

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 (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 (Verizon Wireless)

 

The LG G2 is both super-sized and super-powerful, but it doesn't quite match the mighty Samsung Galaxy S4, our Editors' Choice Android smartphone on Verizon.

Huge screen. Super-fast processor. Multitasking.

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

Bloatware and Conclusions Of the 32GB of internal storage, only 23.86GB are available out of the box. Like the AT&T model, Verizon's G2 is laden with carrier bloatware. That includes six Verizon branded apps and various third-party apps like Amazon...

LG G2 (AT&T)

 

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 AT&T.

Excellent battery life. Huge screen. Super-fast processor. Multitasking.

Much of this stuff is interesting; I just wish you had a choice whether to install it or not.
