The device is a solid device for the everyman and everywoman. There are many great pieces including the screen, QSlide apps are productive and serve their purpose. The messaging app is a great way to get my texts on the home screen and not having to open the app. Other apps such as the tasks are not tasks are not linked through the Google Tasks app, so that's disappointing. Otherwise, I can make a call, check the calendar, and calculate my tip al on the main screen at the same time.
With that said, the biggest issue with the device is the lack of support of third party apps. For instance, I love the Quick Window case for the most part. However, the app that runs the widgets can't be modified so you are stuck with basically two time apps, and a music app that is not compatible with Google Music. This is disappointing, and I had to disable the music app as it took over the headset controls all the time.
Therefore, I love the device on the whole and it's parts are great as long as you want to play in the LG ecosystem. However, the ecosystem is reminiscent of the smartphones of the 2000s with localized music and proprietary software. The LG G2 gets an 8 as the device works great, but the software is unwieldy to get anything higher.
