I have to say, for 2013, this phone was way ahead of it's time in the market with it's camera.
I am testing one right now and I am so impressed with it.
Not only does it do 60FPS at a decent bitrate, it has a really fast AutoFocus and OIS works wonders.
Yeah it only goes to Lollipop officially, but if you root the phone it should run Oreo, maybe.
Downside is the storage - I am testing a 16GB at the moment and there's only like 9GB of free space so that's probably the only negative.
This phone is almost 5 years old. Amazing I have to say that.
Original battery also still holds charge perfect with 10% drop from a full charge overnight.
I wish I had this back in the day instead of going for an iPhone 4S :(
I am a Korean user. I also bought this 4 yrs ago and it is still working well. it had had touch panel malfunctioning but LG repair guy simply fixed it with no charge. the LG guy proudly said this is a well made phone and gonna work for yrs. even though my G3 is down and never gonna be fixed, i will be with G2 for more.
This is my opinion about LG G2 .
I bought this phone 4 years ago on 2014 .
This phone has served me really well and i'm satisfied by it .
-Performance = This phone's perfomance was really good , first time i got it , it was super snappy , i didn't have any lag at all . The Snapdragon 800 played games pretty well .
Problem is that it heats up a lot and it drains the battery pretty quickily . For normal use watching videos , social media , or websurfing it has no problem at all.
-Storage = my phone only had 16gb , about 10gb usable more or less. At first it didn't give me any problem , i could take hundred of photos and couple of videos while having some games installed , but then when time goes on i notice that an SD card would've been great . I often uninstall games and even delete photos or transfer them on my computer so i'm able to free up some space.
You really have to keep in mind your storage with this phone. 10gb in 2018 is no longer enough in my opinion .
-Ram = 2gb is enough for daily use . it doesn't handle background task that well , max 2-3 apps , then it's needed to be reloaded all over again .
-Camera = The camera is awesome if it has lots of light , it take really good photos and with help of OIS it reduce shake pretty decently . But during night , the camera becomes really laggy , and the photos ain't that good . Video has some trouble of focusing , it's usable but not the best . Front camera is decent for social media .
-Battery = when first got it the battery last whole day with screen on time around 4-5 hrs , or even 6 hrs when i push it to the max .
Overheating is a problem and it drains battery extremely fast , playing heavy graphic games kills battery quickily , it takes around 2-3 hrs to drain battery while playing game from 100-0% .
Now 4 years later the battery only last 4hrs and i'm a heavy user and it will only last me half a day .
-The build is good , even if it's plastic i had no problem with it, it's pretty grippy , i never used a case for it . it has tiny scratches but not a problem at all .
It's also durable , atleast for the times i dropped it at around half a meter , it didn't shatter the glass .
i reccomend getting a screen protector but a case isn't really that necessary aslong as you be careful with it .
Unfortunately my phone's wifi doesn't work anymore, it has trouble connecting . i think it's because of the overheating, or maybe not . I no longer use it , i often leave it on stanby and it last for days! often even a week i still find it having around 30% battery .
TLDR = This phone is good , if you can find it for less than 150 euros it's a good buy . I don't reccomend buying used one though because of that battery and it might have been overheated so much . for 2018 it's pretty good if you can get one with a good deal .
I've had this phone for 3 and a half years. The only problems i have are that the battery has worn out so it empties pretty fast and sometimes it goes crazy so i can't use the keyboard.

Have a good day and LG G2 forever
Still have this phone since 2015. But the only bad thing poor selfie camera and the fact that there's no sdcard port.
I still have this phone for like 2 years , Incredible phone , so solid and the 32GO of storage is just perfect (Movies , Apps , Photos), the 2GB ram works fine too , The camera is nice , take a picture and go to insta to adjust it and boom it's clear! , about the Video recording my camera became blurry but because i think i've put it always on a place full of dust , It's the best phone i have ever owned , I wanna switch to iPhone SE but i'm afraid of it's battery , any suggestions? ^_^
best android mobile phone I've ever had, my first android was MOTO CLIQ, this is my 2nd android phone..I still maintain it however 2x lcd replaced (1x free-guarantee), change battery after 5 years,..few months ago exactly..now it's the time to change microphone..usd20 no big deal?!! what I like from this phone,..it just perfect?!! match on my hand palm, good design ,..everything ok even for this year?!! i hate the BIG phone which release today,..and crazy price also not fit on my pocket..money..size.. etc!! LG G7 sucks,...shame on it!!
LG G2 is trully beautiful monster..love it so much... I delay my mind to change the phone until next year..I hope this phone..LG G2 still stick together with me..cheers all!!
I just purchased my LG G2 D802 "16 GB" Black yesterday and i've fully charged it today and i am super exited to set it up and use it as my daily driver, My only regret is that i could not get the "32 GB" variant :(
Any tips and tricks, dos and don'ts from G2's old time users?
I don't intend on upgrading my G2 from KitKat to Lolipop, Anything else?
One of the best phones ever. Incredible screen to body ratio. Massive battery. Full HD. Lightning fast even in 2018 (benchmarks aren't everything), especially with custom ROMs (good support, BTW). Lacks card slot, but 32 GB is very usable today. Phones have returned to 4 faster cores rather than 8 cores because it works better. This phone overclocks to 2.7 GHz easily, some hit 2.9 stable. Can be underclocked or set minimum from 800 MHz down to around 200 MHz for a super low sleep and awesome battery life! Perfect one hand size too. If the Nexus 5X hadn't had the bricking issue, I'd use that. This is one of the *very* few reasonably sized alternatives.
My lg g2 running well 3rd year. No problems. Nice screen, good size, charges fast, easy to carry and use.
lg g2 made me hate all lg products. worst phone i have ever used. crappy touch. even if u changed it it still behaves weired as if it was built by a bunch of amateurs calling themselves tech experts. phantom touch, touch freezing at times and part of the touch not working i never wanna use any lg product again cos they are all a bunch of d***heads.
i tested for very long time many phones like lg g3 some samsung phones and xperia and found the lg g2 the best , the external screen has many cracks on it and is working perfectly the battery is perfect too and beat many phone on standby mode, it drains only 1 percent for all the night (8 or 10 hours) and very rare lags so one advice ( custom kitkat rom ) dont update to lolipop.
I am using f320k model korien from 5 year it is amazing no lag no battery drain perfect speed it is the best phone and no need to buy new and costly phones while this gentelman is working perfectly.
