Dr.George, 17 Oct 2013Hi,i want 2 ask u if any of LG software features or any option generally is removed after root... moreAfter rooting, the G2 software features and options will remain intact,and function as per normal,but you are strongly advised not to meddle with the root directory yourself,there is where all the default G2 stuff are kept,then you will be on the safe side.If you prefer to,you can go ahead to perform a hard factory reset,your device will still be rooted,no doubt it is unnecessary.
The purpose of rooting G2 in this manner is to get rip of the soft buttons,you don't need to explore the root directory.
The rooting process will do all the necessary trick itself,after successfully rooted,get the GMD Auto Hide Soft Keys app from play store,install it and do your own preference settings,note: your G2 MUST be rooted in order to use this app,otherwise it won't work.
Once everything goes well,there you are,the soft buttons will be hidden(tap/swipe it for it to reapper again),then you will be greatly HAPPY and please to see your own wide real FULL 5.2" screen on your G2,you are going to feel pretty good for sure.
How to perform rooting,go to the web link below,everything is in step by step guided,and very clear instructions with pictures illustration,it's pretty simple and easy on your way to the big wide screen.
*** Please be advised that,after rooting,your G2 warranty might be voided,but i have no time to bother about that,a wider full screen is more important than any others,anyway you still can unroot it back to the original state,so no worries...

hamza, 14 Oct 2013Please tell me lg g2 or htc one ?? G2 hands down
Better processor, larger display in more compact dimensions, and superior battery life.
Cheers.....Finally I rooted my G2,the process was simple and no sweat, it doesn't cause any harm to my G2 after rooted, it works as sweet as before,I'm pretty happy and satisfied that my G2 is now a FULL viewing 5.2" Screen,no more that irritating bar,whether being gaming,web video, pdf/doc,camera,video recording,web surfing are all on a solid wide 5.2" FULL screen viewing,NO MORE 4.9",the soft buttons are auto hidden,only when I need it, I just swipe it or tap it at the bottom for it to reappear.
Now i m proudly to say that mine is the real LG G2 FULL 5.2" IPS screen.The feeling is good.
As for those who are still hoping and thinking LG will hide the buttons bar,I m sorry to say this to you continue to wait longggggggg.......gggggggg.......gggggggg.......
Anonymous, 17 Oct 2013HTC design is better2. Battery Life: No need to explain, just be honest.
G2 trumps HTC one in this area.
this device is available in my country less than a month of its release and im in asia and the version that is available here the UK vesion (D802) and i bought it for less than $600.00(Php 24,000.00). and i have for three months now and what i can say is.... its an amazing phone.
Anonymous, 16 Oct 2013My htc one is better...the design is rubbish comapared to the htc one... Quad core 2.26ghz on ... moreThis is an honest comparison between HTC One and LG G2:
1. Desgin: HTC One's metallic design is good looking compared to G2, but it has TONS of bezel surrounding the 4.7" screen, so the designers here fail on GEOMETRY, its Lengt to Width Ratio is bigger compared to the average ratio among smartphones, making look like an eraser. And of course with metallic design you are more prone to electrocution and radiation. LG G2 design -plactic but well built and it reduces the weight of the phone- STUNNING 5.2" with the tiniest bezels in any smartphone ever made... etc...

HTC One is rubbish on tech analysis compared to S4 and even this one. Only thing it's better over S4 is better GPU unit and come on if i really want 600USD gaming device it would be overpriced cell phone,
Maybe your sluggis desire is to exchange your crappy One for a bit superior G2 but you certainly still do not own one.
Every piece of plastic which MSR is above 15USD comes with those silicon protection sheets, and especially tablets, notebooks and cells. So you think your local dealer would sell you used phone?! All items worth 80USD and above comes in box and boxes have non-tampering stickers on themselves so if that seal is broken you already get used phone :)
