LG G2 review

 

The G2 is still a top performer, and now it's cheaper

Amazing screen ; Excellent camera ; Solid battery life

Dull design ; No microSD slot ; Poor button placement

Ratings in depth The LG G2 is a beastly smartphone and it was LG's answer to 2013's Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One. It's a large, yet not unwieldy, smartphone brimming with specs that would make the most discerning geeks drool.

LG G2 review - Pocket-lint

 

LG has done it. The G2 really is a compelling alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S4 and even the iPhone. We like LG's take on a phone, we think it has throughtfully

Visually appealing, feels great as a phone, sound quality for music is insanely good, fast and slick (Snapdragon S800), decent battery life

Camera isn't as good as either of the main competitors, fairly expensive, no microSD expansion

The G2 is easily a competitor for every other high-end smartphone out there. The "weird" button layout works for us, and it's paired with some smart touch functions that are well thought out. The phone looks and feels great, and just works as a...

LG G2 vs LG G3 comparison review

 

When the LG G2 was released we judged it to be the best smartphone money can buy, and to this day it sits atop our best smartphone 2014 chart. Can the LG G3 live up to the example it sets?

LG G2 vs G3 comparison: why you should upgrade to the new flagship Android smartphone

 

The new LG G3, reviewed, may have impressive specifications, but as you'll see, it has a lot to live up to given that its predecessor, the G2, also reviewed, is a tough act to follow.

LG G2 review

 

After successfully teaming up with Google for the Nexus 4, LG stormed the market in 2013 with its own flagship smartphone called the G2. In our initial LG G2 review we wanted to see if it can take on the iPhone 5S, Galaxy Note 3 and Sony Xperia Z1. It...

LG trumped the competition with the G2. The phone offers a combination of value for money with high-end features which we haven't seen from rival flagship devices. A great specification combined with impressive design and handy software features mean...

LG G2 video review - a great Android smartphone at a good price

 

After successfully teaming up with Google for the Nexus 4, LG is back with its own flagship smartphone called the G2. It's available for £399 on PAYG which is considerably cheaper than top-end rivals – it's off to a good start.

Released Today: LG is back in the smartphone game and the G2 sees it land with a bang.

Stunning 5.2-inch edge-to-edge display, Speedy Snapdragon 800 CPU, Strong battery life

Cheap plastic build, Awkward button placement
