correction...TV Out works

This phone uses the Slimport adapter, as opposed to MHL but it does support TV out.

So LG G2 or should I hold out for the Nexus 5?

I can't really compare anything to the Nexus 5 since everything that's leaked is merely speculation but, the big selling point for me is the camera. 13mp sounds a lot better than 8mp. It's hard to go on just the camera alone though, we had this little Samsung phone from T-Mobile years ago and it only had an 8mp camera. It took better photos than our big digital camera ever did.
I'm not to worried about not having the latest software because I would probably root and install a modded "kit kat" rom down the road anyway.
I used to complain about not having an sdcard slot too but, now all my stuff is synced via google and I don't really find myself needing all that space.
I should also mention that I'm not with T-Mobile but, MetroPCS.
Anyon...

Why won't LG put a SD Card Slot on This Phone !!!!!

Would love to have had this as my next phone, but they still refuse to put a sd card slot on there phones. That for me is a big draw back. This is the fastest phone out as of now. LG get a sd card slot would boast sales big time.Want are they think...... Sad Sad Sad Sad Shaking my head !!!!!!

I wonder

If Eric has something against LG.
Sometimes while I read, it felt like he was having a hard time trying to write something nice about this phone.

I may assume that he is simply not able to ignore the ugly hardware (while not the ugliest, but I admit that this is an unattractive phone)

What I think about this phone.
- The camera is better than the one in the GS4.
- The camera software is just about as good as Samsung's, but not really on  par.
- LG phones are the best at multitasking.
- It lacks an stylus, a shame, really. Though, this is still a phone not a phablet.   They should at least offer support for third party hardware, or sell it   separatedly.
- The fastest android phone to date
- Can't believe a phone like this c...

PC Synch

I am considering leaving the apple world and have focused on the G2, Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. the G2 looks like a very good choice to get a larger display without going all the way to the Note 3.

Comparing phones I noted that the G2 supposedly does not have a pc synch feature yet it does have USB connectivity. Is this really a problem for transferring music or other data?

The fact that the battery isn't removable is also causing me some concern compared to the Samsung.

I am mainly using phone now for phone and email.

Why no MicroSD?!

I do not get this, I love a lot of things about this phone, and others, but the lack of expandable storage is a deal breaker for me at ANY size. That said, this phone, in a much smaller screen size and overall size, with microSD would be great. Oh well.

Call me crazy, but...

...isn't it time manufacturers started focusing on less glitzy features in exchange for features that matter in the real world?

For example, phones are destined for a harsh life of abuse yet they are notoriously fragile with screens getting cracked from minor drops and death from minor exposure to water. Another common complaint is that the batteries just don't last enough hours. Also one or the other speaker (earpiece or speakerphone) tend to fail at some point. Laptops are built to higher standards and they are likely to spend their lives on a desk in a climate/humidity controlled building!

It seems to me that a bigger focus needs to be placed on developing phones that can handle the real world instead of attempting to make a phon...

3.15" wide?!

It doesn't look nearly as wide as the SG Note II.
Is this information correct?

Back buttons?

Won't setting the phone down cause the middle back button to be pressed? It looks raised on some of those photos. My first thought was that it was a little rubber nub-like stand and thought oh cool, but to find out its a button??

Guest mode = WIN

HOPEFULLY this stops people from blindly handing their $600 smartphones to their kids, only for their kids to change all their passwords and mess up their phone. This should have been a feature in phones long ago.
