2.personally, I really like the placement of the power and vol buttons on the back. It's natural for me the way I hold a phone. LG put thought into so it functions well and doesn't cause unwanted effects like accidentally ending a call or activating when sat onto a surface. Not just a novelty aesthetic.
3.I highly recommend the G2. It's fast and powerful. Has a beautiful screen. All the features you could want and is a well executed, high quality device all around. And, especially now that the G3 and S5 are out, is a very nice price. It's a lot of phone for the money

My only complaint is the lack of microSD support...

I have heard rumours that the G2 has expandable storage and replacable battery in Korea. Is this really true?
Please answer if you know about this. Thanks.

Guys, i need some help. If any of you have used the G2, can you help me? I want to know:
1) Does the G2 have 4.4.2 Android version yet?
2) Does the lock button make matters difficult?
3) Would you recommend this phone to someone? Is it good enough to buy?
I would be very grateful if you helped!

Not a big fan of Samsung's design language, but perhaps that's the tradeoff for expandable memory and battery life -- I was very disappointed to see the G2 only have these features in the home market.

But, ugh, the S5 has disappointed me from a design standpoint. The bezel is ridiculous compared to the G2.

Its fairly amusing to think that despite being a pretty fair comparison of these flagship phones, the fanboys of either side begin to bash one another like angry butt-hurt teenagers.

The s4 was released before the g2 and it puts up a solid fight against it? I'm solely sold on replaceable batter and expandable storage.

Nothing else really matters as the AMOLED burn-in is complete BS overhyped hatred from LG fanboys and that LG COPIED Samsung are hardcore Samsung fanboys..

Get over yourselves.. S4 and G2 are a solid option either way, but I'd pick the S4 only because I like expandability and battery swapping (when the battery decides to finally give out )

Another note, AMOLED only has burn in if you press aggressively against it or leave your screen on for more than 3 hours on a single image... And having owned several AMOLED Phones, I haven't had any fail unless I had abused it myself.

The g2 is a piece of crap, can't get 4g LTE at ALL! Can't even get 4g, phone stuck on 3g all the time. Havent seen 3g in almost 5 years! My roommate and I literally sit side by side on the couch and he has a strong 4g LTE signal and I can only get 3g! And he has a galaxy 3!!! Sprint says I'm in an area with the best 4g lte reception they offer and nothing wrong with the network or tower..doubt anything wrong with the phone because I am seeing so many ppl with the same prob with this phone after doing research online..sprint has no answer for me and a rep finally told me that the phone has the worst 4g signal of any phone out and that is why the phone is so cheap/free because they just want to get rid of this phone altogether..DO NOT GET THIS PHONE IF U HAVE SPRINT!!! (not sure how it behaves with other provider networks)
