What People Are Saying

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the g2 simply captivated me.... i never even thought twice about leaving samsung behind for good because one phone design, extreme usability and performance, just dominated and trumped all other brands. i still have and use my vs980. i fixed itba few times but no design is without a small flaw. small price to pay. this phone is still relevent today next to its newer versions. starts faster than g3 ,4 and 5. of course the g5 owns but g2 still standing strong and is better than 85% of other phones on the market. and thanks to the g5 the g2 is pretty affordable to by outright to bring to any carrier. love this phone!!!! thanks lg!!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst phone I have ever owned! I have this phone just about a year and it simply the worst phone ever. It is slow and randomly shuts off and or just goes back to home screen. Sometimes it is impossible to send text messages. It just says sending and never sends. Also, the phone gets hot to touch and it must be restarted. The battery life is poor and it doesn't stay charged even for a day. I absolutely hate this phone and would never recommend purchasing it. I will never by LG again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from If I could give zero stars I would I have had this phone for less than one year. Battery life is less than 7 hours. Most of the applications are laggy. The phone randomly shuts down and when it turns back on, has lost at least 30% of its battery life. The headphone jack stopped working after 3 months, the charger port no longer works unless I hold the phone and charger at a certain angle, and even then it tells me the charger is incompatible and the charger actually DRAINS the battery. This is the worst phone I have had yet, and I had a track phone. Whenever I am asked about what kind I have, I make sure I tell them to never purchase this phone because it is actual garbage. Do NOT waste your time buying this piece of poop that doesn't perform any of the functions it should. It doesn't deserve your money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not built to last I bought 2 of these phones 1 and a half years ago. For 6 months the phones have not been able to charge from the original charger that came with the phone. Slowly charges with new cords or simply will not charge with the message, "Charging has stopped to prevent damage to phone. To continue charging phone connect the phone to its original USB cable and charger provided." The only way to charge the phone is through the USB cord connected to the computer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT! My LG G2 Verizon is a great phone. I have had many brands with various bells and whistles but NONE are as good as this. The G2 is STILL competative with all the latest "Big boy" models.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Relatively low function Le me watching tv, guy who gets shot gets ressuscitated by some sort of future tech, jumps up and stabs/kills the doctor who was trying to save his life. I yell at the TV "Hey! That wasn't very nice!" like I'm scolding a small child. Yeah Stace, that's totally gonna work XD

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ABSOLUTE FAIL This is the absolute worst phone I have ever owned. Last night I tried charging it over night and today it is at 8% battery capacity. Everything about this phone failed with the new software update. It now cannot send or receive texts/calls. I have tried hard resetting the phone but it continues to fail. Also you can watch as the battery power ticks away. About every minute the battery life goes down 1%. 0/10 I will never purchase another LG product ever again.
