Having internal memory and not being able to swap memory cards will always be an issue, I have different memory cards for different content and I use the full 32 or 64 gig cards for each purpose. I currently use one for work and one for home movies, this is useful if I am travelling.
Also we will always need batteries which have high capacity and can be swapped if the battery goes flat.
Basically there is a reason we don't all use Iphones.
(for all of the reasons above).
In fact I don't care about the weight if the battery is flat then the phone becomes a useless paper weight, so my perfect phone would have the ability to have two memory card slots and a battery capacity twice the size, having said that this phone does have a high capacity battery. So to sum up LG you could do better!

These phone manufacturers seem to think that everybody has cheap unlimited wireless internet which isnt true even for developed countries.
This is why HTC's phones arent doing well.
The nexus line only does well coz of their cheap prices.
Cloud storage is good if you have a cheap data plan, while smartphones are getting smarter each year, data paln are getting expensive. So the idea of relying on cloud over SD card storage failed. Another thing is security issues of your cloud data, who can tell me that your personal files are 100% private and secure? And not evreyone can afford being always online.
for people who blame LG for phone without SD card those do not understand in marketing because of the art of marketing is to try to satisfied the majority and about this phone it is very excellent for me because I always do not need for phone with big memory
im definietly getting this phone. It very interesting and it has the snap dragon 800
Jordan 1178, 28 Aug 2013Looks like a great phone. I wonder if you can replace battery? And as far as I can tell no me... morethe korean version will have removable battery.
jayvie, 28 Aug 2013its really annoying to know that until now the designer of this model is so rude enough not to... moreAgree 100% . Can not buy smartphone with internal memory of only 16GB based on clove in UK and not external slots for additional memory.
Why LG in their presentation keep say we listen to you to what you need to make this phone. Must of listen with one ear.
LG G2 is way better than GS4,HTC One, Xperia Z, Iphone 5S, etc... And always the cheapest during release, at less than 900SGD. I've waited for 3 years before buying my first and last real smartphone and it will be the LG G2 even though it has only 32 GB.

Looks like a great phone. I wonder if you can replace battery? And as far as I can tell no memory card to put in :/.
How is the glass. I had LG Optimus G, dropped it twicw and both the times broke the front glass and back glass cracked coz of temperature difference oe something. Not getting it fixed any more as it is very expensive and difficult to find a glass for white handset. :(Really want to go for this next version of LG. Does anybody know about the glass quality?
its really annoying to know that until now the designer of this model is so rude enough not to put sd card which is the trend in almost all phones today. no matter how good you think this model is if no sdcard i won't buy this phone because this is for me a static memory...
This phone seems to be amazing, a shame for no sd card slot though...
lg please provide either sd slot or 64 gb user available memory on g2 worldwide.
lg put great features but less memory. they should release korean version with 3000 mah battery worldwide which have sd slot instead of 24 gb version with no card slot. great features but always makes small mistakes.
junay, 27 Aug 2013I wonder why LG decided not to put a card slot on the international version, compared to the G... moreIMHO it is because of US.
US like no sdcard slot, see ipon, new motorola droid, htc one, lumia 9xx-10xx
i don't know why they like limited storage and don't have the freedom to change their own battery.
most people tend to use their smartphone just as a phone, calling and texting.
while more users who used to work with smartphone use their phone like a mini PC, mean we need more storage cause we want to bring more multimedia contents, data and etc.
i don't play games in my smartphone, and 32gb is not enough, i have to save hundred of screen capture everyday and that's one of the main reason i like lg smartphone because they have screencapture hardware button plus the screen is no tall so it easier to type because in my business i have to type alot, so saving hundred screencapture per day plus hundred of notes makes my 32gb optimus vu cannot store any music and movie. no sdcard is really defeat the purpose of having a smartphone for works.
goron, 27 Aug 2013goshhh beautiful good spec phone but no sdcard... i hope all G2 for asia will have sdcard slo... moreI wonder why LG decided not to put a card slot on the international version, compared to the GS4, G2 is 1mm thicker. Is there not enough room for a card slot, is it due to the 3000 mAh battery? or they want us to make use of their cloud storage which is impractical for those who are not constantly online. It is strange, GS4 is thinner yet it has a removable battery and a card slot. The best thing LG could do is to release globally the international version together with the Korean version(32GB internal with a card slot).
goshhh beautiful good spec phone but no sdcard...
i hope all G2 for asia will have sdcard slot and removable battery.
LG should learn not from human but from HTC poor sell.
what happen when manufactures start to limit user freedom? drop down to buttom
i'm using LG optimus vu p895 now, and 32gb is not enough. super hate no sdcard phones.
