And there are plenty of Samsungy features: the front camera can keep an eye on you so they display won't turn off when you're looking at it.
by MobileTechReview
The LG G2's 13MP camera with Sony Exmor RS sensor is one of the best camera phones on the market: resolution, settings, features and good image processing software come together for excellent results.

Reviews Word on the street for the LG G2


8.0
The LG G2 also features an excellent 13MP rear camera, WiFi 802.11ac, NFC, a larger than average battery and an immense bundle of LG software.

9.4
As it's now the norm, the viewing angles of this IPS LCD screen are very good, although still not perfect, as there's some noticeable brightness loss, but that's normal.

10.0
It's an IPS panel too, so you get solid viewing angles, natural colours and really impressive detail.

9.0
From here, you can quickly access Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS and adjust brightness, too.

9.1 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Screen

It's plenty enough in terms of density and sharpness and I think some folks actually prefer better than life colors.
by MobileTechReview
LCD screens don't have the brightness or the vivid colours of OLED screens, but in our opinion these things are not entirely necessary.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
LG offers much more user UI customization than we've seen on other brands, and that's a nice touch.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2013)

Camera

They both have quad core processors, 2 gigs of RAM, high quality front cameras and 13MP rear cameras with a plethora of capture features including dual capture video using the front and rear cameras simultaneously.
by MobileTechReview
Exposure is generally balanced with none of the white out that the Samsung Galaxy S4 is prone to, and it takes better low light shots than the GS4.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2013)
There's plenty of image data thanks to the megapixel rating, and happily LG resists over-sharpening what's already sharp enough.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2013)

Battery

On the downside though, the combination of that 5.2-inch 1080p screen and powerful processor has obvious implication on the battery life.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
We've been playing Jurassic Park Builder on our G2 and it's meant that we've had to charge it again in the early evening.
by PocketLint (Sep, 2013)
LG made a big deal out of taking up more internal space by staggering its battery shape within the device.

Video

You can take great looking photos and 1080p video that look sharp on Facebook or on your phone's screen.
by MobileTechReview
And if you want to shoot great video, a DSLR or dedicated video camera will be your best bet.
by TechRadar (Jul, 2014)
The G2 also features 1080p video recording at 60 frames per second (current smartphone cameras of this same class shoot at 30 fps), and we've got to tell you, watching such footage is pure joy.

Ergonomics

We'd love to see a more interesting and attractive casing that didn't turn murky with fingerprints so quickly, but the phone is nonetheless solidly built and curved nicely to fit in the hand.
by MobileTechReview (Sep, 2013)
If you can live with the button placement - which I have done, and even begun to enjoy - you'll come to love this phone.
by TechRadar (Jul, 2014)
The display is top notch, performance is fast and fluid, the camera is excellent and the rear buttons actually work nicely.
