It's the best smartphone i ever had, from iphone 3s to samsung s duos2 and now my G2 Mini D618 is turning 2 years this May 2016 but still good as new. I updated to 5.02 but i use v20e rom (manually flash) from CIS, much more stable than v20d current release in Philippines. It's not the best performance (speed) phone, but it's still the best feature-packed smartphone you'll see in the philippine market up to now..

I've rooted my phone and it works better. I also use Greenify (root only I think), a really nice app that hibernates some apps saving battery. On a normal day, checking Facebook, using Chrome and other apps over Wi-Fi and also playing around 1h/day, at the end of the day I recharhe my phone during the whole night, while I sleep. The best part is that if I want I can make the battery last for 2 days maybe more by using the phone rarely.
Before the root I can't remember exactly how was the battery, but as far as I remember it was pretty decent, around one day.
So you shouldn't worry to much, the phone is great but try to close the Wi-Fi/Data Connection when you don't need them, get a task killer app and search more ways to get a better battery on the internet.
In my opinion you should not do things you don't want. For example don't turn off sync or other functions just to save battery, at the end of the day it's about using your phone properly. You could get a power bank if your battery isn't getting any better.
Just bought this phone today, i have a good experience with LG phones, they're tough and reliable never had any problems and from what I've read in the reviews on this phone i think it's a good deal, and hope it will be a good experience like with his old pals ;)

Camera not so great but good quality than g4 beat without the manual mode. I owned this phone 1 year this month and im so happy to have this.
Just got upgraded in Indonesia.
Now OS is Android 5.0.2,
Build Number LRX22G,
Kernel Version. 3.4.0+,
Software Version V20d-ESA-XX.
It brings a lot improvement over the previous version. Fast acquiring and stable GPS, notification issue in Skype solved, etc.
I'm very happy with this upgrade.
It's about 400 something Mb.
I am using this phone for nearly one and a half year without any problem.Nice phone
One thing i loved about this phone is the firmware stability, i am a root user and i find it very pleasing and easy to tweak without having to suffer from common bugs like the other unit does.
joko, 14 Oct 2015it is usually very hard charge??? nope it is not, besides using any 2amp charger it only takes 0ne and a half hour to be full.
