Before purchasing a new phone it is always a good idea to do a bit of research on the phones that are on the market to find out which one is truly the right fit for you. We don’t always have hours on end to read pages and pages of review. Here is my quick review of the LG G2!
-This display is AWESOME! The display is large enough to watch hours of tv shows or even the big game. At 5.2 inches there is plenty of real estate for apps and everything else you need quickly on the home screen. Of course you get Full 1080p HD! The IPS screen is bright, and sharp. Colors are accurate, and this screen just looks amazing. Somehow LG managed to fit a 5.2″ screen in a package similar in size to the S4, so your thumbs won’t cramp up even with the larger screen.
-Superb battery life! The phone refuses to die. This phone required over 8 hours of use to fully burn out during a battery burn out test. The LG G2 was able to easily make it through an entire day and well into the night even with some music streaming and video playback. The Giant 3,000mah battery really helps this phone to truck on through the day.
-Lots of Performance Power. The LG G2 was one of the first devices to use Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon 800 processor. The quad core processor is one of the fastest available. Where the Galaxy S4 was bogged down with all of the bloatware that came with it, the LG G2 seems to not have any trouble with all of the extra junk.
Feels Cheap- The Galaxy S4 is built with plastic, but even it feels pretty solid. The G2 on the other hand brings plasticky to a whole new level.
Back Buttons A Misguided Feature- The volume buttons and power button are both directly under the camera lens on the back of the phone. This takes some getting used to, and while it may make since being that your fingers generally rest in this area, it isn’t at all practical. You end up pressing the wrong button at times.
To Many Software Features- This is how OEMs stand out from one another. They won’t allow us to run stock Android because they feel that if they offer a ton of features you will chose their device over other phones. The problem is that these features do take up resources and most of them are pretty whiz-bang. They are great to show off, but you probably won’t use them often.
Overall this is an awesome looking phone! I have to give it an 8 out of 10!
