This was one of the best phone I had even though I didn't bought it at the time of its launch.
The only real flaw I experienced with this phone was the frame bending-wear where it would cause the touchscreen to be haywired or just not functioning.
I wanted to repair it but the screen was still expensive even for an old phone.
This phone was the reason why I have switched to LG. After G4, LG never again.
Looking back, it really was no surprise this phone was a huge deal back in the day
The cell phone is great, using a custom file system Colt OS android 7.1 tested absolutely everything and found no problem! ( i'm a natural discoverer of bugs )
The camera application of the Colt rom gives a significant gain quality in the captured image as well.
use the device for about 6 months, I was satisfied with everything!
The cell was very fast and I decided to sell them because it was money, and I had bought a more powerful one.
baterry have quick charge in the Colt rom
( users from brazil need to use a patch to use any custom system, our d805 in the same hardware of the d802, but you need the patch)
Anonymous, 10 Nov 2018After 4 years im still really happy with my G2, but for the last 6 months im experiencing some... moreI can recommend LineageOS 15.1. Official build started some weeks ago. It is really smooth and so far I faced no issues.
After 4 years im still really happy with my G2, but for the last 6 months im experiencing some lagging which is normal, but i wanna use some other rom so i could use it for smooth. Any recommendation?
Great phone just now replacing it...had since 2014....going to LG G6. No issue's love the phone....only reason....battery is bad won't stay charged....5 years!! NOT BAD!! They are replacing@no cost to me. Great phone....
have this model for 1,5 years. front camera is not good especially for video call too dark, lcd is break easily.. lcd is major issues for this model.. sorry bad english..
Solid phone. I have it since may, 2014. Still working great with custom rom (ACIP 12.1) and new battery(new battery since yesterday). Awesome device!!
still have this as a spare awsome performance since i got it but just use it as a spare now as it does lag a lot so only use it when my battery dies on my daily user if it was not lagging i would still use it every day as it was really fast screen quality is really good on a plus note my battery still lasts a long time can get a full days use still and that is after a few years of usung and abusing considering i got this in probably early 2014 would recommend if u find one cheap- max 60 70 quid i reckon now.
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? ^_^
