PJA_in_Boston's review of the LG G2 (Verizon)

original version, submitted Oct 19, 2013, 5:46 PM:

Superb phone from Verizon Wireless (Boston Area)

I'm not sure why this phone has so few reviews on Phone Scoop, but it certainly deserves more complimentary ones. I've never written a phone review, but since the LG G2 combines everything I've wanted since I started using smart phones, I feel like spreading the word.

Pros:

- Excellent battery life. Unlike the Galaxy Nexus I'd been using with a 3300 mAh battery, this one *always* gets me through a full day of heavy use.

- A superb, bright, large, high-resolution display.

- An top-notch camera with a wide range of shooting options

- Clear, strong phone reception

- Clear, sufficiently loud audio

- Excellent wi-fi, 4G and GPS performance

- Useful and well-designed interface

The phone's construction and appearance are just fine, and it's slicked up and protected nicely with an inexpensive Trudia case.

The rear button location takes a little getting used to, but after a while, it's not a big deal. I don't use slide-aside, but most of the other LG-specific features are an improvement over stock Android.

I chose the LG G2 after looking carefully and extensively into the S4, and the Droid Maxx. I spent quite a bit of time learning about the G2's features and customizing it to my tastes. If you're willing to do this, you'll have a real winner.

The rear button location takes a little getting used to, but after a while, it's not a big deal. I don't use slide-aside, but most of the other LG-specific features are welcome additions or improvements over stock Android (including a nice help system),

I chose the LG G2 after looking carefully and extensively into the S4, and the Droid Maxx (including downloading, printing and reading manuals for all three). I spent quite a bit of time learning about the G2's features and customizing it to my tastes. If you're willing to do this, you'll have a real winner.
