Gogle: If you want to increase your popularity, you must do what I say.
Lg: Yes Sir!
This phone is Google's version of the iPhone. Just how Apple forces its users to use their services alone including iCloud, you will also be forced to use only Google's services with this phone and for the limited memory available you have no other option but to use Google Drive. Why are people whining about no microsd card slot? That's how this phone is designed to be used in the first place. Nexus devices are not meant to compete with the other droids but with the iPhone.

Actually battery conformed 3000 mAh not 2300 mAh as gsmarena mentioned.
If only Google really knows how to play the game right. Having a memory card slot on a Nexus device is a great reason why a lot of people must buy a pure Android device (stock experience and doesn't have bloatwares). Another thing is that Google should make the battery bigger at least a 2700 MAH minimum for a powerful device. I like Nexus devices but I don't buy them coz those simple things are actually some of the things I consider in buying a device.
I dont like LG :3, 19 Oct 2013Why do the google people have to make mobiles with LG i own a Nexus 3 i love it, why? 1, Bec... moreGalaxy Nexus the worst Nexus device iv'e ever used, Nexus 4 million times better.
2300 mah battery for this phone..??!!! Its a deal breaker. I would rather go for Motorola Droid Maxx. To battery life matters the most, not the specs...
The battery capacity if true is a deal breaker. I was seriously considering replacing my old bb storm with n5.I think l'l go with the new bb z30 with it's excellent battery...guess this device is not targeted at us busy working types...
nice lg device but battery is very low compare to 5" device so lg plz and no sd card ?

brynn, 19 Oct 2013Thank goodness 8GB=2007 storage capacity ie Nokia N95 8gb, its actually 2013 phone manufacture... moreInternal flash storage actually costs a lot more than microSD cards with the same capacity hence manufacturers are opting for smallest capacity if possible.
so mean after nexus 4 I will buy again nexus 5 for better camera or Google can develop the program for new operating system to fix the nexus 4 camera become vivid.
because for me its better the design of nexus 4 rather than Nexus 5 with back to back glass and small phone with great display. But please just fix it the camera for the sake of nexus 4 users.
rahul.tech.gennie, 18 Oct 2013Comparing with the leaked price of nexus5, g2 costs almost double of nexus5...would u pay doub... moreThen you have to carry the power pack around with you and be plugged in to it while it's in your pocket. That would suck. Just put in a decent sized battery inside the phone. It's not that hard and it would be REALLY cheap. Using a 3,000mAh battery instead of a 2,300mAh battery would have costed LG like an extra $1.
HTC One M7 owner, 19 Oct 2013Why is everyone flipping out over the battery. My HTC One has a 2300mAh and it gets me through... moreJust because you get a "full day" doesn't mean the HTC One has good battery life. It just means you are a light user. In my experience trying out the HTC One I've found the battery life to not be very good. With 15 minutes of screen on time right after unplugging the battery dropped from 100% to 92%. That's pretty bad.
The Snapdragon 800 will help power usage some(mostly in stand by) but the biggest power hog of any phone is the screen. If you only use your phone 1-2 hours a day of screen on time a 2,300mAh battery powering a 4.7-5" 1080p IPS LCD might be fine. Use it more than 2 hours of screen on time and it will be dead before dinner.
Thank goodness 8GB=2007 storage capacity ie Nokia N95 8gb, its actually 2013 phone manufacturers not 2007..Why do they even make 8GB chips they cost so little its not worth making them.
Cameraman, 19 Oct 2013Do you believe that 13 mp camera is better than 8? FYI more mp doesn't mean better quality. Doesn't matter. The battery will always be dead anyway. you'll never be able to use it :P
