G4 user, 17 Dec 2015well G2 and G3 are good devices ...ill tell u difference this way..... G2 screen is brighte... moreMany many many thanks to you.... Bro.... :) you are so nice person....After reading your DETAILED Comparison I concluded that if I go for LG G3 I have to sacrifice "PERFORMANCE,BATTERY,SCREEN BRIGHTNESS AND CONTRAST" and I will get LITTLE BIT BETTER CAMERA,NICE DESIGN,BIGGER SCREEN,REMOVABLE BATTERY AND SD CARD SLOT''.... and if I go for LG G2 I have to sacrifice its DESIGN,SD CARD SLOT NON REMOVABLE BATTERY'' and I will get "GOOD PERFORMANCE,DISPLAY,BATTERY,CAN SAVE 100 USD''.....So I am going to buy LG G2 in 150 USD and rest of saved money I will invest on some good digital camera which is always better than any smartphone's camera right now (correct me if I am wrong).....hope it will be my good companion at least for 2 years so when LG G4's Price will come down under 250 USD I may upgrade to G4.... :P.....I have one last question .... how can I realize that the phone I am going to purchase is the refurbished or new non refurbished.... is there any technique to find out such thing or I would trust on the shopkeeper and trust on my fate.....thanks... God bless you dear ... God Bless you.... THANKS AGAIN bro.....MAY YOU LIVE LONG WITH A LOT OF SUCCESS AND PLEASURES.....AND KEEP HELPING OTHERS...... :)...:)
Anonymous, 16 Dec 2015THANKS BROTHER.... will you please give me the comparison of PROS and CONS of both LG G2 and L... morewell G2 and G3 are good devices ...ill tell u difference this way.....
G2 screen is brighter and has way better contrast than G3 wich means better picture quality ....being 1080p for a 5.2 inches screen this is good ......over 400ppi ull never notice a pixel with a naked eye .....G3 strengh is only based on 2k screen wich is crisper but this is something you will notice only when putting G2 next to G3 believe me.
camera G2 after being updated to lollipop was able to keep a lot of features like nioght mode,sport,beauty shoot,shoot and clear, and anothers wich are no longer present on G3 .... G3 strengh is based on a newer sensor wich captures just by a bit better pics only by point and shoot... we have to keep in mind that this one has laser focus wich improves the autofocus speed... something really good.... wich is the only down side some times for G2 when it comes to shutter speed in low light ... but if know how to use iso,exposure,white balace...u should be able to take excellent pics out from G2 and u wont miss anything from G3 but just the speed focusing.
battery life G2 is a champion back in the screen realm G2 use 1080p and G3 2k wich taxes a lot the cpu and gpu and even with low brightness consumes more power.....i can tell u that a G2 50% brightness has a betetr screen to look at than G3 at same percent even legible in outdoors ....plus the bennefit of 5-6 hours of onscreen time using wi-fi for browser,wassp, and most of the time youtube video streaming at 720p to 1080p video quality..... in a period of 24-48 hours after a 100% charge i have the doubt that a G3 could achieve something like this with these settings and timing.....by the way if u dont use the device this way,... then u could get few days of battery .
processor on G3 is hardly diffreent from G2 .... sd800 and sd801 are similars ....just overclocked cpu and gpu but...diffrenece can be noted using same screen resolution 1080p for example and size in order to keep ppi count.... due to the 2k screen wich taxes cpu and gpu .... now the G3 on this department looks more like a predecesor than a sucessor in more demaning task... example gta san andreas game at higher graphics ... u can look for it at youtube... u ll notice G2 performing excellent and G3 lagging in front of it.
depending of ur likes ... 5.2 inches is an am azing size with perfect screen to body ration wich u can use with one hand G2 is the best on this department .... 5.5 is good but hardly a one hand usage .. im not a tiny hands boy so ... for average G2 fits perfect on hand.......
now i think that the visible adventage of G3 over G2 might be software updates .... if u consider this a must have then go for G3 plus a new software doesnt means a better performance ..... G2 is 5.0.2 and G3 is set to receive 6.0 ...... LG italy on a twiter account said that LG G2 might receive future updates ... so who knows 5.1.1 or 6.0 after all time is anly answer to this....
if u askme ill go straight for G2 ..this my daily driver... because has almost everything and ull have a hardtime finding a better phone wich such a good battery and performance under 250 us ......but if u like bigger screen and u want to tell ur friends that ur phone has 2k resolution then G3 is for u
toti, 15 Dec 2015please help... someone knows how to update Lg g2 d80020k version to 5.02 Lollipop please.... ... moreGo to your settings and find the update area I believe its at the top or in the posting that says about this phone. Turn on your automatic updates that way you don't have to worry about it.
The phone will then update itself every time. The settings emblem looks like a screw.
I had this phone I love this phone I'm sorry I updated to the other phone. I'm going to buy another one.

lg, 14 Dec 2015Is LG G2 still worth buy for 2 years in about 150USD...??? or any other sugssions plzWell... you usually can't get a device that can still outmatch most current midrange and higher-midrange devices at that price point, can you? Depends on the state the G2 is in. Most of the refurbs are questionable at best, but if the G2 actually happens to be in good condition, then I think that would be a pretty sweet deal.
I've lately bought an LG G2 VS980. The problem is I can't charge it above 35% as it shows the notification of 'not charging'. I've tried different chargers and cables but no avail.Can anybody tell me whether its a hardware issue or a software one?

Anonymous, 13 Dec 2015thanks.... but I really like LG G3s design more than LG2s design and on the other hand LG G3 h... moreagain it depens on u....if u want to save money and get a cool phone g2 is for u but if u want dsing and a few little better things then get g3 ... still for me G2 is betetr not for saving money well atleast for me 32gb of space is good,besides we are not servers for carry a lot of information ... i guess that we could use a laptop....usb,portable harddrive ,even otg usb if u want to carry files and keep them with u...... again thats my opinion.
Azad, 13 Dec 2015Plz tel me guys witch is good an beter phone lg g2 sony z1 Back buttons, SD Card and water resistance are about the biggest differences there are. The rest are software functions and unique gimmicks of the UI overlay and that's highly subjective. These phones were direct competitors back in the day, neither of them is clearly superior. Check out the software gimmicks, that's what is going to decide.
Fedro, 13 Dec 2015Can somebody tell me is my LG clone ?
I have bought new device in Vodafone package, and antu... moreThat is not wrong. Snapdragon 800 is a marketing name similar to Pentium or Core ix, the technologies behind the marketing name have different names and this one really uses ARMv7 instruction architecture.
I downloaded Antutu myself and it said my CPU was ARMv7 Processor (VFPv4,Neon). Then I ran the benchmark, went back to system info, scrolled down to the CPU section and tapped "more" on the core info. This showed the core architecture is Krait 400 and the model name displayed as Snapdragon 800, as it should be.
G4 user, 11 Dec 2015for all of u let me tell u if u go for G2 u are taking an amazing phone lg G3 has minor upgrad... morethanks.... but I really like LG G3s design more than LG2s design and on the other hand LG G3 has removable battery, and SD card slot..... the price difference between G2 and G3 is about 100 USD , LG G2 (150 USD) and LG G3 (250 USD), my question is is it worth to spend extra 100 USD on lg g3.... I am confused..?????
Can somebody tell me is my LG clone ?
I have bought new device in Vodafone package, and antutu v6.0 CPU Model showed: Quad-Core ARMv7 Processor (VFPv4,Neon) instead Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 ???!!!
Everything else is as it should be, so I am wondering is it a clone ?
for all of u let me tell u if u go for G2 u are taking an amazing phone lg G3 has minor upgrades but not shared at maximun for example ......... 2k screen is not as bright as the one on G2 ..has better contrast even being 1080p wich is betetr for me ..... camera deparment G2 is betetr for me and user friendly because for non tech people can simply select the right scene ... but g3 lacks of many options and if u dont know anything about iso...exposure or something like that then ur pics will look good but not at best ..... it is clearly better for focus yes due to the new tech it has but it is just that ...sd801 even being faster ... works slower due to the lot of pixels ... sd800 on lg G2 works way better due to it has less pixels ...... and result is more battery. aboput updates lg italian twiter account says that g2 IS ELEGIBLE FOR FUTURE UPDATES SO ATLEAST i want G2 with 5.1.1 and G4 interface...
Anonymous, 10 Dec 2015hi guys need your help.... which one is good LG G2,LG3,I really like LG3 ..... but I heard th... moreG3 hase marginally better hardware, laser focus on camera and MUCH higher resolution display. That's the bottom line. The display is just too much of an overkill so it can drain the battery noticeably faster and to use more demanding apps with the resolution tends to tax the SoC too much-> further battery drain and heat.
G2 is a well rounded device with no advantages or disadvantages sticking out too much. So decide on whether you need that laser focus (and more likely Android 6 update) and much higher resolution.
