Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I have been using this phone for a year and a couple months. I mainly use this phone for texting and email. I don't do any social network and the only app I've added that I use regularly is Snapchat. About a month ago I started having problems with apps opening randomly and the cursor jumping all around. I looked it up and saw a lot of people saying it's a overheating problem. So I took the case off thinking that may be causing overheating but it has now gotten so bad I can't even type 4 words without the cursor going crazy. Today it sent an attachment to someone I wasn't even trying to text! It also added Event to my calendar without me touching a thing. I think it's messed up that the phone has lasted just past warranty coverage and now I'm going to be stuck paying to either have it fixed or replaced. I've purchased LG phones in the past and never had a problem, I've had them last up to 4 years. This was my first smartphone and I'm just so, so disappointed in LG for making such a sub-par product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible at connecting to internet I've had my G2 for about 18 months now and have been having connectivity issues since day one. I wasn't getting my text messages in a timely manner, or even in the right order. I have been to many of the Sprint stores and called Sprint about this problem dozens of times and they tell me that there's nothing wrong. I was even told by one tech that the G2 isn't even capable of a LTE connection. even when I'm connected to the wi-fi at home the problem continues. I get error messages all day long that I'm not connected to the internet, even with wi-fi. I switched to Hangouts for messaging, but I still have the same problem of not getting messages sometimes until the next day. I canceled my protection plan with Sprint because they don't "protect" your phone when there is a problem. There should be a place with LG to fix my phone since my wireless carrier can't fix it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing phone while it lasted. A couple years ago, I needed to get a new phone. I had the Galaxy S3, and while I loved it, it was barely holding any charge, and the screen was not responding that well. I went into my Sprint store, and was going to get the S4, but then the G2 caught my eye. I picked it up and played with it for a while, and was sold instantly. The phone is fast in almost anything it does, and can run near any app with ease. The overall design is super sleek, and the minimal use of buttons, while most others love buttons, I feel they are just more prone to fail and welcome minimalism here. However, I did drop it one day when I wasn't paying attention, and shattered the screen. I was still able to use it, but didn't want to risk glass in my pocket. I ordered a replacement (refurbished), and it started to act funny (screen flickering, randomly turning on and off) and I know it wasn't fully the fault of the phone. However, I was still able to do everything I was doing before, but was sort of "forced" to take more frequent breaks, lol. Then the worst thing possible could happen. Same sort of situation. Dropped phone, screen shattered. Only this time, nothing. The sensors for the touchscreen were busted. So instead of risking another buggy refurbish, I decided to upgrade to a newer LG phone, the G3 (I know, i could have gone with the G4, but I like the style of the 3 slightly better). Beside the minor hiccup with the replacement though, I would highly recommend the G2 to ANYONE looking for a great Android that can do just about anything, and it won't cost them an arm and a leg.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love the camera This camera lets you take great pictures and I dont mean selfies. I caught the best lightening storm it was amazing. I hate the upgrade that just went through when I try to message and it will default to words or phrases I didnt type in the first place. The old software didnt do that and my locations of some things changed. Why oh why did you do that??????

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Beast of a Phone Pros: I've had this phone for over a year and from my experiences so far, I can say this is definitely a phone for the power users out there. The phone's able to cut through most of the applications you can throw at it from the Google Play store; assuming those apps were well written by their respective software developers. The default phone software LG has written for their users is useful; for example their Music app is wonderful at searching for music already on the phone; playing tracks by album, playlist, or selection. It is also utilitarian at times; for example, clearing space on the phone only allows you to remove content by folder, not necessarily by selecting the largest files found on the phone. Cons: One of the things that kept this phone from having a really good quality was the smaller contacts on the phone's back panel for the GPS. I've had issues with it acquiring signal and so have others it seems on the XDA forums; opening the back panel and pushing the contacts so they sit more upright corrected the problem. As a customer though, I shouldn't have to ever open up the phone, even if I do like it because I like fixing gear myself. Despite these, I do recommend this product at this point in time primarily as a mid-range phone. as by the time people see this; this phone won't be as powerful as whatever hits the market later in 2015. It would be interesting to see an available upgrade to Android L(olipop) from the carriers or directly from LG themselves.
