NO! NO! There's an error on this review! LG actually got the feature of Smart Video and Smart Screen first, started from LG Optimus G Pro, then SAMSUNG GALAXY S4 comes with Smart Pause. Its not LG COPY, its SAMSUNG copy the Smart Video of LG!

evolutionx: Music player is easy to navigate and plays all my HD Tracks (both FLAC and WAV) flawlessly. It sounded great on my earphones (FAD Heaven 6 and ToGo 334) at 50% volume. TH900 and W3000ANV need to be driven at 100% volume and they sound great as well. I will say that the sound quality is equivalent to Sony Walkman DAPs A-series. I bought the Korean set as it comes with micro sd slot and removable battery. So far, i can get full day of usage which is not bad considering it is 2160ma battery versus 3000ma in International version of the phone.
So far very happy with the 13 mega camera with image stabilization , full HD screen, form factor and very good sounding 24/192 music player.

(you are smart enough for not having that basic doubt)
My dear friend FYI if you overclock GPU, you can eat your hand-FRY after playing a high end game..
USB 3 ??? how many ppl need higher USB transfer rate ?
stereo loud speaker is is not loud but perfect as per many reviews (not benchmarks)
G2 camera is far better than Z1 ,see the low light stills in other review sites .. if i tell name of sites , my comment will be deleted :)
LG G PRO, 09 Sep 2013the 24 bit audio quality matters if you connect phone to external speakers/carkit/headsets ...... moreno one will trust Samsung in benchmarks. why? due to powervr sgx544mp3 not enabling the 533 mhz clock in some apps. For your information, this was intended to do and the higher clock is supported in browser and some apps where is needed and can br configured any time. Note 3 comes with:
3 gb ram.
brilliant bigger screen in a smaller body than note 2
faux leather back and good design.
s-pen. If you are not an artist even then you will enjoy it. It's a great tech
Note 3 will benchmark higher due to 3 gb ram. There is nothing wrong that you cannot Trust.
What else you want in a phone.
last question: did you even read the review of g2. The loudspeaker us really pathetic scoring below average score. and with our without ois, the z1 will kick out g2 in camera. read gsmarena blog. It outpaces even lumia 1020. let g2 rest in peace in front of z1 in camera department.

manual focus can be achieved by android apps but OIS cant be..
i didnt found anything special in note 3 than note 2
air gesture menu by s-pen ? i dont want to pay double money for a pressure sensitive wacom pen (useful only for artists ..if im artist mi will buy a wacom tablet/note 800 which is providing bigger screen ). samsung benchmarks no body will trust no way it will wash out Z1/G2 or any phone
ya i agree its personal preference after all :)
The LG G2 is a great device with awesome hardware but unpleasing aesthetics. The back buttons are uttery disastrous and LG's UI looks like it escaped from the 90's.
LG G PRO, 09 Sep 2013actually there are more sony and sammsung fanboys .
just see the ratings in gsmarena .. which... moreI am not contradicting you for anything. g2 has slimmer bezels but z1 has a brilliant glass and metal body. For me, the z1 really looks better and has a premium feel. The quaff beats audio and 24 bit sound do nothing if the speaker and the audio output is disatrous and surprisingly low in volume. z1 had lot of more options in camera than lg g2 and is like a professional camera. It has a manual focus dude. That alone dissolves all the features of g2. plus it has a better sensor(actually much better). The Sony ui is the best and looks and performs great. The triluminous display is no slouch and has much more colour gamut than ips of lg. however display is a personal preference according to me. personally I like the super amoled of s4 better than anything as it can be configured according to my needs and had sky breaking contrast. but some people are there who like natural colours more.
In the end, it all depends on the personal preference. many people are somewhat sick and change their phone too often. after 7 months news will come that many people abandoned g2 for s5 or even sooner, note 3.
There is no denying the fact that note 3 crushes them all but then again , it's a phablet.
all in all, there is no perfect phone. yeah, lg is evolving. kudos to that. But in the end people but the phone more preferable to them.
- All review sites said G2 is the impressive.
- Google found it as impressive and making
Nexus-G with KitKat :)
-Qualcom tie-up with LG
-Carriers and ppl all over world waiting for it .
-Samsung S4 sold by many koreans for G2
- only for samsung/sony fans, G2 is not good .. huh

just see the ratings in gsmarena .. which is the top rated sony/samsung ? and dont you see sony fanboys posting stupid coments in LG thread ?
atleast i never posted in z1 thread bcoz it never impressed me ( same design as Z with better processor)
so g2 is better according to me ..
-better design with slim bezel
-better camera features OIS, dualcam ,lowlight
-better audio (24 bit) headset also impressive quad beat 2 ,pause resume in video
- full hd IPS LCD really a beauty and industry quality
sony have fans based on brand..
but LG have real users. not even a brand, how lg became world 3rd?? LG didnt gave update for tegra devices like O2x .. bcoz nvidia didnt gave libraries.
if samsung/sony, they would have given old libraries and make a laggy update.
so even with marketing techniques and fanbase of sony/samsung ,lg is worls 3rs in selling phones ... which is bcoz of their effort in L-series, G, G-Pro
and now G2..
LG's biggest problem is updating their phones... And that's a major factor. The phone does look and perform great
[deleted post]beautiful g2 with ugly z1. please don't say that as z1 is made with premium materials and g2 looks good from the front panel but the back panel is really repulsive. The omnibalance design looks good to me. Don't has better support and update cycle than lg and xperia z1 is not behind g3 in many ways.
I think there is no scenario where g2 can even come close to z1 if Sony makes non crappy final software of z1.
Let's wait till the showdown comes. The z1 is more practical with waterproofing and sd card slot. 23 gb doesnt quite match up.
I am not a Sony fan or a g2 hater btw. The g2 is a great device and it has definitely made me excited. but the g2 fanboys here are really irritating and spreading false info that this is the greatest and the best.
no phone is perfect. All have their flaws. The best phone is that which matches your needs and not necessarily be the best specced phone.
good luck lg fanboys, one day you will even break the record of samsung or apple fanboys.
Don't know about you girls, but here in Korea the battery is replaceable. Simple click-on plastic cover is all you need to remove to easily switch batteries
LG G PRO, 09 Sep 2013There are so many websites uploaded low light photos of G2. S4 and Z1 reach nowhere near G2 in... morexperia z1 reach nowhere near g2. lol z1 is not even out yet. Yes I agree that g2 will beat s4 in low light but the difference will not be much as ois eliminates only hand shake.
The xperia z1 will beat the shit out of g2. You know what matters in low light photography. That's the pixel size. and z1 had more megapixel camera as well as Individually larger pixels. is sensor size is great. 1/2.3 inch is what a point and shoot camera has and Sony bionz processor is used in its alpha range DSLRs. do you know why htc one takes great photos in low light. That's due to larger pixels or photosites and not the ois. and why 808 pureview took even great photos at 5 megapixel. due to its monstrous 1/1.1 inch sensor.
I am am amateur photographer and I know that ois alone can't enable a small sensor with small pixels to take great photos. This is simple physics.
I know that now you will tell that g2 has a good camera or a don't buy phone for camera only. g2 still has a great camera which records great videos and good photos but really the results will not match z1.
regarding the reviews I believe gsmarena's controlled unbiased lab quality shots in identical conditions more than the unscientific tests of other sites.wait, they will do a dedicated shootout between all of them in coming days.
LG optimus L9-II
4.7 " True HD IPS
1.4Ghz Dual core
And its beautiful. ..
I want it too. ..
I saw many different reviews g2'camera beats all competitors.. .
Only you trolls cannot accept that truth.
Much question why are many trolls here?
I think they are afraid lg is rising.. .hahaha. ..
NO MATTER HOW THEY SPREAD LIES. ..
LG WILL CONQUER THE SMART PHONE WORLD.. .SOON. ..
LG AND SAMSUNG ARE ONE.. ...
At last a fine device from LG! Definitely better than the S4, also I thing better than Sony Xperia Z1 and Galaxy Note 3 in terms of photo quality because Sony and Samsung don't have Optical Image Stabilization that the G2 has.
There are so many websites uploaded low light photos of G2. S4 and Z1 reach nowhere near G2 in terms of photo quality . G2 gives the best camera, quad beat headset ad 24 bit audio and FULL HD IPS screen . and a best battery life..
G2 is a premium handset will all features needed in a good price tag no doubt .. Thats why all carriers included G2 in theirtop list, even in korea ,so many ppl replaced S4 by G2 And now google making this premium handset as nexus-G/nexus 5...
