Review: LG G2 for Verizon Wireless
The LG G2 is an extremely powerful smartphone. It pushes the envelope in terms of technology and features, though it also falls in-step with its major competitors.
The stand-out features include the dazzling display, good signal performance and voice quality, and of course the buttons placed on the back rather than the side. The button configuration is interesting and will take some getting used to for those who purchase the G2.
I wish the G2's hardware were a bit nicer. The crummy plastic used to form the back cover makes even Samsung's materials feel lush in comparison. For such an important device, I can't help but feel that LG dropped the ball a bit in terms of design and materials. That said, the G2's Snapdragon 800 processor is incredible and provides a capable engine under the G2's hood.
The list of software and applications available on the G2 are unending. Like Samsung with the Galaxy S 4, LG crammed as many new tricks into the G2 as it could muster. Some of the more appealing apps include the improved camera software, the expanded list of QSlide apps, and Guest Mode. Thankfully, the camera at least performs on-par with the competition.
Perhaps the G2's biggest fault is its lack of personality. It does everything well, but could very well get lost in the sea of smartphones on today's wireless store shelves. I like it, and it is easy to recommend, but you have to want it.
