The LG G2 is a good phone, although it may not be right for some of you. The screen is vivid and clear running with a 1080p resolution so it scores good there although the standard resolution on phones will most likely move onto 2k soon as the first phones are starting to appear on the market with that. The Snapdragon 800 processor makes this phone quite fast and the above average 13 MP camera is also a great little edition. The powerful battery will last you up to 900 hours on standby or around 17.5 hours of talk time. Though the power and volume buttons are on the back of the phone, which could take some getting used to as its fairly unusual on smartphones although that could be an advantage in the unique category. Also LG decided to add a bunch of extra apps to the LG G2 which may or may not come in handy whilst also giving you the ability to disable but you cannot uninstall them. Although this phone has no micro sd slot, which means no storage expansion, it still comes with good storage starting at 32Gb then 64Gb which is really all you need. It's OS is the latest android which in my opinion is far better than Apple's iOS. But thats down to personal preference I guess. All in all a cracking phone boasting a very good OS, good camera and an all round fast performance.
When unboxing the LG G2 it had a great design, great feel and overall a good looking handset. Start up is as simple as it can be with a set up guide that anyone can follow. After a few weeks with this phone I found that it''''s large screen might annoy some users. Holding the phone in one hand while walking can cause problems and is very uncomfortable. Despite this the power/lock and volume buttons on the back are a great help as unlike most android devices they are not on the side where it is hard to reach. The stunning 13mp camera is great for all the users who love photographs, sharp impages with fast auto focus and a beaming flash will make any photo look amazing.
I use my phone a lot and one of the things that has always really bugged me about modern smartphones is that they may be all singing and dancing but what good is that if they can't even get a full day from a single charge before dying. The biggest thing that attracted me to buying the LG G2 was because of the fact that the battery life was being touted as the best on any modern smartphone. I remember the good old days with my old Nokia phone that would last a week on a single charge and while I didn't expect any modern phone to match that I did want something that could make it from morning until bedtime without dying on me. The phone has all the usual top of the range specs that you would expect from any flag ship phone. It has a 5.2 inch screen which has a ppi of 423 which means that even the most eagle eyes of people shouldn't be able to notice any discernable pixels on the screen when looking at it. I use the phone a lot for surfing the internet and watching movies and both are great with the large bright screen. The phone is quite large but because it is very thin it fits in my pocket with ease and because the bezels on the phone as so small they have really made the most of the available real estate to cram in the 5.2 inch screen without making the phone too large to hold comfortably. The battery life is fantastic with the phone and it easily gets through a whole day with no problems. I watch movies, listen to music, surf the internet and send loads of whatsapps throughout a day and even with the wifi function turned on it hasn't let me down yet. I also really like the fact that they phone charges really quickly. If I have forgot to charge it I can just plug it in and within 20 minutes or so it will have charged 50 per cent which is actually enough juice to last a good few hours. The design of the phone is a little bit uninspired and I wish that LG had plumped for more premium materials in its construction such as glass or metal like some of the other phone manufacturers instead of going for plastic. It isn't a horrible design but it is very plain and not as attractive as some. They have tried to be different by placing the volume and power buttons on the back of the phone instead of the side as they say this is more natural for people to use but I have to disagree with them slightly as I would still prefer them in the traditional place. Calls sound good on the phone and it doesn't drop them very often and I think that reception seems to be better with this than with most phones that I have had.
