over in the "Review: LG Volt 2 for Boost Mobile" discussion:
Other missing features.
I have owned the Volt 2 for a week now and agree with much of this review. The quality from LG is excellent. I had the orginal Volt and loved it. It went for a swim and no longer works. While the Volt 2 does have a larger display, slightly better resolution and processor LG took away many things. 1 smaller battery - less talk time 2 no NFC 3 no Miracast or any screen casting/mirroring - can't project phone to TV 4 no IR remote control 5 no HD voice - calls sound bad 6 no setting on camera - old version took beautiful HDR pics
They took away all the things I loved from the Volt and couldn't even add more RAM so the phone lags very often. DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE. Save you money and get something better or cheaper.
over in the "LG Debuts Four Mid-Tier Devices " discussion:
Why even bother?
They waste so much time and money into phones that no one really wants. It's simple really - make a bang-for-buck device like the Moto G, then have a flagship phone like the G3, and there you go. Costs are down, and you don't have a bunch of useless mid to low tier phones that just won't sell to warrant the cost.
It's the same realization Samsung had - they simply pumped out too much crap, and hoped that it stuck; rather it simply displayed to them that only the GS5 and Note devices were actually selling in significant ways - and the others were just fillers and basically a waste of time.
