Engadget Review

A combination of high-level specifications and great battery life make the G2 one of the best flagship Android phones out there. However, those rear-facing buttons won't be for everyone.

What a cool cellphone. Having some new unique features but really functional. A pioneer for back button & knock on display.

I owned a nexus 5, which I loved. I lost it and bought the LG g2. Battery life and screen are impressive. Camera is good but not the best in its class. LG software is unintuitive and quite ugly. Good luck root access exists...

If you want an Android smartphone with super fast hardware that’s future proof, a more than decent camera and the best display available, then the G2 is for you. I wouldn’t recommend this phone to anyone over 40 or to anyone who hasn’t used Android before. Its mainly for people who love tech and Android. It’s for individuals who need the latest hardware in their hands. It’s also for people who are tired of the Samsung Galaxy Series. It’s for geeks.Go to tekno-swag.com for the full review -> http://goo.gl/jonZgI
