LG G2 - The Good and The Bad

LG G2 Review: The Good

The G2's biggest selling point is the power it supplies. The Snapdragon 800 chipset provides more grunt that most laptops, and I can pretty much assure you now that it will handle anything you can throw at it.
The sharp and bright IPS screen is another highlight, offering image quality that is as good - if not better - than any other Android device on the market right now.
Battery life is also amazing for a phone with such a powerful processor. The 3,000mAh power cell has enough stamina to last well over a day even with robust usage. Manage your use effectively, however, and you can make it last much longer.

LG G2 Review: The Bad

Despite LG's assurances that the unique placement of the G2's physical controls should lead to more comfortable everyday use, I imagine that many users will struggle with them, at least in the beginning.
Although Google has long since removed MicroSD card slots from its Nexus line of devices, Samsung continues to include such expandability in its phones, and by removing the option on the G2, LG has disadvantaged itself slightly.
The final issue is with timing. LG is also making the Nexus 5, and that will surely attract the lion's share of interest when it launches in the next few weeks. The G2 is therefore in danger of getting ignored, as it ships with Android 4.2.2, and not Android 4.4, the latest version of Google's OS, which will make its debut aboard the Nexus 5 (so the story goes) later this month.
