I am loving this phone. I like this better than samsung or even Sony Z series, because LG ui and colors are just awesome..
Samsung fans can not stand not to come to this page. People here are talking about the G2 model! Anyway, I had a note 2 and s4 now. use and g2 satisfy the phone itself, much better for the both Samsung models. A story that is worse LG brand is particularly funny but ok, some comment on what they want. Yeah, I know just how you note the size of the device does not bother you? I tried it and it did not fit, while the G2 has a different phone is the ultimate device
AnonD-3744, 14 Jan 2014Ah, thank you very much for explaining it more specific and scientificly. Great help!Thanks for your advice also. :)

Alot of phones and new phones today are currently using Li-Ion batteries. They are cheaper.
Have you had any phones in the past that got Li-Po as they last longest than Li-Ion batteries?
How long have you had your LG G2 for?
I heard you must not wait till the battery go to zero is that true?
Is it necessary to charge it to a 100%?
Im from UK and the version available here is D802 Model 16GB. We will have the 32GB version soon. I spoke to somebody on the T-Mobile/EE network and she said the second week of this month, which is now.
So you recommended that I should get this phone right? battery won't just get damaged unexpectedly right. Sorry im asking these questions, ive had a phone with Li-Polymer battery built in.
So Li-Po batteries are safe than Li-Ion? I thought it was the other way round, they are the same you said.
We will also have the new LG G Flex, which is another fantastic phone with a Li-Po 3500mah battery and curved screen, which the screen is good for the eyes.

rrig_UK, 14 Jan 2014Hi,
Thanks for the reply. Sorry I mentioned about overcharging the battery. The reason why ... moreYou got it wrong, li-po is safer and less phrone to fire and explosion than li-ion, this is due to the different material used in the layer between the anode and cathode inside the battery. Li-po and li-ion are basically the same but li-po uses a polymer in that layer instead of the lithium salt electrolytes used in li-ion.
Li-po is an evolution of li-ion and has slightly lower capacity but higher safety. Think of it this way, if the anode and the cathode touches eachother in a damaged battery they will (often) explode or burn up, the thinner and weaker this layer is the bigger the chance of an internal short circuit occuring. Polymers are in general durable and strong substances that better can prevent short circuits than the perforated plastic used inside li-ion batteries.
Can any1 tell me max usb on go support for dis handset.. Means we can connect 1TB hard drive... Plzz replay fss.. This can save my 4k.. If support I will buy 16 gb variant..
i need an advice how to charge the battery of g2..cause as far as i know this is lipo...should i let it drain to zero before charging or should i charge it when its around 12-20 percent help please

I forgot to mention that Li-Ion battery (that is currently used in mobile p... moreI believe all original battery chargers have circuit cut built in, even if they all are made in china like the non original ones come from and made by the same vendors. I could buy a non original charger for $2 and get a risk it might explode my battery if I leave my phone over charged. But with a $15 -20 original charger you should be no worry about it.
The battery itself needs a special care, I agree. Whenever I feel the phone is getting too hot to hold, I always check the battery temperature (dial *#*#4636#*#* to enter info menu). If it is more than 60 C degree, I will immediately stop my activity. (But never with this phone exceed 45 C with my room temperature about 30-32)
The main difference between Li-on and Li-po battery I think on their material to pack the batery cell only, where the one is more flexible than the other (I forgot which one is more flexible, I guess the Li-po one). Both are Lithium based battery, hence they have the same behavior in usage (battery life, battery life span etc).
Almost everything I concerned from this phone are good, my mine complaint perhaps the material of the back cover, but I got the flip cover for free, so not bothered with that any more. Recommend, yes. (I was torn between Z1 and Note 3 when I saw G2 is usd 170 cheaper than both – according to our currency here – and it is including a flip cover and a pair of LG HBS-730 bluetooth headset costs $60s as bonuses)
peacemen, 14 Jan 2014s4 dont have good camera . only good if there is a bright light....hehe just based on my opinion and exp. , but s4 is reallly fast , good for gaming, but the camera is really not so good, but compare with other low tech phone its okay.
I forgot to mention that Li-Ion battery (that is currently used in mobile phone including new devices today) more resistant to overcharge than Li-Po (Li-Polymer) batteries.
I really like this phone, I want to upgrade to it. My 24 month contract has finished.
Do you think I should go with phone, I need some advice.
AnonD-3744, 14 Jan 2014I have no idea how much space has been occupied by LG pre-loaded apps since they are stored in... moreHi,
Thanks for the reply. Sorry I mentioned about overcharging the battery. The reason why I asked you those question is because the LG G2 has Li Polymer Battery.
I was doing reasearch and found that if its overcharged, damaged or miss used then it will explode causing fire. The battery needs special care.
That really put me off as I really like this phone becuase of the long lasting battery life.
You mentioned about the LG G2 charger, does it have a circuit built in to prevent the above from happening?
AnonD-218601, 12 Jan 2014this is very serious question to you all. plz help me . i had bought xperia z on this christma... moreIf you're strictly photography, the S4 is still more reliable. G2is the Bbetter phone all round though - fresher.
Have had my G2 for two weeks and I'm in two minds. Sometimes it's a great phone. Sometimes it's infuriating. First of all, why bother with the 16g at all? After a little music and my apps I have a measly 3g left. A ROM runs at around 2g. It's a killer and for me. The camera is another horrendous experience. Getting a good photo is like pulling teeth. Granted, I do get some excellent shots... Finally... When the fun is long gone... But even then, I head over to my PC and I'm horrified! And I know I'm not the only one. Lg OVER processes the shots taken so that when you view them on PC you're in for a shock. Blue/Green tinting pre-dominates and so does grain. I know what I'm taking about - my boyfriend has the S4 and he's now the default photo taker whenever we go out because we just can't rely on the G2. Finally performance. OK, the G2 shines here. The screen is supreme in reproduction and silky in use. The glass is sensuous and I can sit the whole day, running my fingers over it. The buttons on the back are such a good idea, I find myself expecting them on every phone I use. It doesn't look sexy but it's a very tactile phone... I go to sleep with it! It's speedy between apps and never feels overloaded.... EXCEPT when I'm browsing the internet. It stutters and coughs while scrolling on ALL browsers, something that's also present on theS4 but not at all on the HTC one. And the body - made in Korea - creaks like Grannies rocking chair at the slightest amount of pressure. You don't need to silence the vibrate in meetings, you need to go outside. So there you have it. I think the software department must just go back and do a major update on optimizing their top-of-the-range hardware. The experience of using the G2 is disjointed and irregular and seeps through after a month or so. I still prefer the G2 over the S4 - it is far less pedestrian, but I find myself left behind when people are taking photos and enjoying. It's a big thing. And yeah. Stop making phones with less than 32g space if you're not going to offer an SD card. It's 2014.
Have the LG G2 for 3 months.
- loooong lasting battery 3days (gmail, googledrive, hangouts, youtube,...)
- super screen but has to be set at least 65% brightness
- compact (felt down 2 times no scrtach)
- LG's software can be 90% turned off, so no bloatware
- verry fast, good wifi cellular signal
- WIRELLESS STORAGE IS top (connect to your pc via explorer-> phone IP-over, no software or anything required, Samsung is here FLOP
- LG UI is clean and usefull had before HTC sense
- needed x1 factory restore (simple task), couldn't get the play store working - no harm all data is in google drive
Daughter has S4, no chance against LG G2
less bloatware (Samsung relly pushes it here)
better infrared remote control UI by miles
