What People Are Saying

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Smartphone Ever! I bought this device a month ago, and so far, despite being a two year old phone, it's great! The phone performs very well, very fast, and almost never slows down, the battery is very long, and the camera is just outstanding compared to my Galaxy S3. The screen is big and sharp, and is very comfortable to hold. The performance got even better today as Verizon pushed out an update to it, with bug fixes and RAM managment solved, and is blazing fast. The only thing that I want to see is Android Marshmallow, because this device certainly has the guts to run it. Other than that, I would recommend this phone to anyone!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Torn about this phone I bought this phone about a year ago because my Galaxy was stolen. Anyway, I liked the way the phone looked so I thought I would give it a try. The good: I get a lot of compliments on this phone. A lot of people love the way it looks and so do I. It's definitely a good looking phone. I like all the features, cameras etc. I also like the big screen and that it's light weight. The bad: After having the phone for nearly a year it started to act up. The double tap to wake up the phone stopped working; I would have to tap several times before it woke up. The power button also stopped locking the phone and my phone was super super super slow. It was annoying. The other thing I really don't like (and probably why I won't ever buy an LG phone again) is how easy the freaking thing breaks. I've had to replace this phone two times because the front screen completely shattered, it looked like a car had run over the phone and all I did was accidentally drop it on the ground. This has never happened with other phones I've had. I try to be careful with my phone but in each instance I dropped the entire front screen was completely destroyed. I really hate that about the phone and I honestly can't wait until I'm available for an upgrade and I can go back to the Galaxy.
