  5. THeo says:

    Pangit ang LG G2, daming problema sa OS nya…

    OK sana siyang device kung malagayan mo ng stocvk android kaso hirap i-root sya…

    maghintay nalang tayo ng NEXUS 5 phone na naayos ang Software/OS issue na ito… Note: LG din gagagwa ng NEXUS 5 (2013 edition)

    • Ruth says:

      Hi Sir THeo, paano niyo po nasabing panget?? May G2 po ba kayo?

    • Brix says:

      I can give you a good answer :) i have an LG G2. It’s been with me for almost 2 weeks. LG G2 has not failed me yet. battery wise, i dont care whether it’s removable or not.. G2’s battery lasts the whole day, even with heavy internet surfing. The rear key is also a huge difference, that is really a plus to any smartphone user. camera is also very nice, so i dont bring any camera with me anymore. if you are looking for a gadget to invest, then I recommend LG G2.

    • Ruth says:

      Hi Sir Brix, thank you for your response. I consider myself a fan of LG G2 and i really want to have one. Checking on it specs, this phone really amazes me. I just couldn’t imagine why Sir THeo posted such comment and i am really interested to know the disadvantages of having LG G2 since i do not have one yet.. :)

    • Thea says:

      Hi. Kumusta naman ang pag-update ng OS ng LG? May improvement kaya?

    • asahi says:

      @Ruth,

      Malamang can’t afford si Theo, kaya nandidiscourage ng ibang gustong bumili ng G2.

      Nandadamay na lang syaa, kumbaga!

    • wew says:

      @Ruth ang tingin kong sinasabi lang ni Theo na disadvantage eh ung mahirap DAAW siya iroot…wala namang problema un sa iba since di naman lahat ng nagaandroid eh niroroot ang phone. kung wala naman problema sayo ang android UI ng LG wala ka nang dapat problemahin =) un nga lang di ganun kalakas ang software support ng LG pero kung ako tatanungin wala namang problema sakin un since mas mabilis na rin magpalit ng phone

    • bajigjig says:

      Sakin naman parang I don’t see the necessity to root it. This phone is just amazing. Can play HD games smoothly. Multi-tasking is a breeze. Partida wala pa akong nakafreeze na apps nyan + no reboots needed. This is indeed a MONSTER Phone. :D

    • XKCD says:

      ***?! Sino nagsabing mahirap i-root?!wala pang gaanong 3rd party support yan kasi kakalabas palng sa market! Tsaka pag pumunta ka sa XDA THREAD makikita mo na ROOTED na yan at UNLOCKED NA ANG BOOTLOADER! MAY CUSTOM ROM NA NGA YAN EH!!! LOL!!!

      NEXUS 5 tsong yan ang ultimate device ng Android Fanatics kase immense ang 3rd Party developer support ng nexus ecosystem!
      GUSTO MO NGA MAG NEXUS 5 WALA KA NAMAN ATANG ALAM SA ANDROID?tsk tsk rooting pa lang dw mahirap na… haha

    • XKC says:

      OMG SOFTWARE PROBLEM NG G2?!!! ANONG SINASABI MO?

      FIRST OF ALL ANG LG G2 has CUSTOM LG SOFTWARE na naka OPTIMUS UI AT ANG NEXUS AY NAKA STOCK AOSP ANDROID 4.4 KITKAT.. SOBRANG LAYO NG SOFTWARE NILA.. U HAVE THE HEAVILY TWEAKED LG AND THE STOCK NEXUS AOSP 4.4 KITKAT.. JIZZZ… DONT COMPARE APPLES TO ORANGES. AND AFAIK LAHAT NG CUSTOM SOFTWARE NG DIFFERNT PHONE BRANDS MAY FLAWS! GOOD THING THERE’s OVER THE AIR UPDATES TO FIX THOSE FLAWS.. SO ANG IMPORTANTE LNG NMN TLGA DITO IS UPDATES TO FIX KUNG ANO MAN SINASABI MONG PROBLEM NA YAN!

      HAYYYY BASA BASA DIN!

    • fanatic says:

      hindi naman ahh imbento lg gnun?

    • Jade says:

      Hi Theo, i suggest you visit the malls, and try the G2 for yourself. you’ll be impressed. i just walked in LG concept store in megamall, after exploring phone for few minutes, i was convinced why they label it as the best smartphone today. napabili tuloy ako kahit di planado. will not every trade G2 for an iPhone which has nothing new in it. kung naghahanap ka ng bagong phone, na may new features and specs, i highly recommend G2.

  6. Joy says:

    Global reviews on LG G2 were amazing and it wasn’t a surprise given the impressive specs on this “MONSTER PHONE”

  7. techy says:

    The LG G2 features the world’s first rear key, the device’s only button, positioned at the back. This button switches the power on and off, activates QuickMemo, and camera use. AWESOME!

    • asashi says:

      paano naging awesome yung rear key for camera use samantalang kung yung main camera ang gagamitin mo, tapos naka-landscape yung phone, eh malamang matakpan ng daliri mo yung camera mismo? saka malamang mag magresult pa yun sa noticeable shake nung phone while taking pictures, kung ikukumpara mo sa kung yung camera shutter key eh andun sa lower right nung phone? pakipaliwanag nga po?

      pwede namang itouch na lang sa screen pag magpipicture pero ibang usapan na yun.

    • Bartolo Colon says:

      Awesome nga po gamitin yung volume as camera shutter kung front cam gagamitin mo. Pang selfie-selfie ba. :)

    • jade says:

      @ Asashi, i have an LG G2, there are a lot of reasons why lg g2’S Camera makes taking photos even more convenient. Ofcourse, you will not use the rear key to take photos all the time. G2’s camera can triggered using cheese shutter or the home keys in front. Rear key button for camera is ideal for selfies. OIS camera is also a very useful camera feature, even im in a moving bus, can still take clear pictures. just sharing!

  8. Ruth says:

    @Asahi, hahahaha. :)

  9. lucky says:

    LG G2 becomes the first smartphone completely devoid of buttons on the sides.
    i want this phone :D

  10. Sunny says:

    @Brix, what about the front camera? Is it good?

  11. slice says:

    akala ku nung una basag.
    ahaha!
    .
    .
    .
    It’s freaking awesome!

  12. don says:

    ilang month kaya ung plan sa Globe?

  13. unggoy says:

    may kasama kaya ito na yung window cover na dinedemo sa memoxpress?

  14. Flippi_Dippi says:

    FINALLY!! A phone I can get behind and support!! NOW, when will Globe update their website to show the G2?

    Anyone else hate the new Globe website? PV crap… errrrrrrrrr

  15. THEO says:

    THIS WEEK IN TECH Before you buy POdcast gives this a heavy negative review:

    Hardware wise OK siya pero yung Custom OS na kasama niya pangit… panay bloatware

    http://twit.tv/show/before-you-buy/90
    pakingang mo nalang ang podcast dito

    • XKCD says:

      jesus christ kung gusto mo mag stock edi mag NEXUS device ka.. And STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT BLOATWARES because some of those are actually useful to some people.. So kung ayaw mo ang software nila because it doesnt suit you edi wag simple as that..

  16. THEO says:

    kaya din ayaw ko, kasi walang SD card support…
    So limitado ka sa internal memory para sa media at apps mo…

    sa 32 GB na model 25 GB lang available… kais masyadong BLOATED ang OS na kasama niya… naubos sa mga tutorials at apps na di kailangan

    • Riba Sanchez says:

      May SD card slot nga, 4 Gig lang naman ilalagay, Class 4 pa. Hahaha.

      64 Gig ang bilin ninyo Class 10.

  17. Toink says:

    1799 = 24 months no Monthly cash out on the unit. 32GB version

    • Toink says:

      **Correction: I meant no cash out on the unit on plan 1799 for 24-months. Just your advance one month payment for the plan.

  18. THEO says:

    para malaman kung bakit ko nasabi na di ko siya gusto siya..

    Also kung makakahinta kayo yung nexT GOOGLE NEXUS PHONE na gawa din ng LG lalabas daw sa katapusan ng buwan, ang firmware niya ay yung ANDROID 4.3 at posible upgrade agad sa KITKAT pag meron…

    • Flippi_Dippi says:

      I am VERY interested in the upcoming Nexus 5, BUT only if I can get it for the US Price of $299 or$399. It’s been reported the $399 Nexus 5 will have a bigger battery and more storage. There’s no way I’ll allow myself to get ripped off by the amateurs at Aeorphone. You enter their shop and it’s like, uh would you mind not texting your friends and take care of me and stop chewing that gum… eeeerrrrrr.

  19. joe says:

    I am using a g2 right now and as an actual user (and not just because I read it somewhere) I could say that it is a great device. Bloatwares are expected from a non-vanilla (nexus or play edition) but there are not much in the g2. But guess what, jellybean lets you disable these bloatwares.

    The last phone I used was an s3 and that one had tons nore bloatware than the g2. I even installed custom ROM (paranoid android) into it. But for the g2, I’m not even thinking of installing custom rom (well, maybe just root to install greenify), but I dont want to lose features like double tap to wake up or sleep,qslide, qmemo.

    I also love that the battery lasts twice as long as my s3. The only downside I see is the IPS screen, contrast is not as good as with the AMOLED.

    • Flippi_Dippi says:

      Thanks Joe. I watched Chad’s Buy/Try on Twit.tv and I wish someone else had done this review. He is just one guy. He likes the buttons on the side. Who says the buttons SHOULD be on the side? That’s not true.

      I haven’t held the G2 yet, but what got me interested in the 1st place was the Buttons on the Back. I think it’s a great idea. I have a GNEX (Had a Nexus 4… nice, but too much glass for an accident prone person such as myself) and I hate the buttons on the side. The phone slips out of my hands most of the time just by locking and unlocking said device. In Landscape Mode I’m always pushing the Power button inadvertently locking it up while watching a video.

      I’m running CyanogenMod and I like it. Chad also complained about the Notification Window. I’d have to try that to see if I’d have the same complaint or not. I appreciate your point about using a Custom Rom, but not wanting to lose some of the cool features of the G2.

      At 1799/month I think it”s a Fantastic deal…. 999 goes to unli data and the remaining 800 is consumable, Right? Wrong? If so the phone IS free!! Damn. I want it!

      Thnx again,
      FD

  20. joe says:

    Hi FD, the button position, it’s a matter of preference, really. Maybe what I dont like about it is I sometimes accidentally press on the camera lens (but I later learned to find the power button first – which is a bit embossed – and work my way from there).

    I also used to drop my previous phone a lot because of the side buttons (partnered with a case that makes the buttons hard to press), so I guess the back buttons work for me overall.

    Oh yeah, the notification window does annoy me because there is only about half of the window for actual notifications (even less if you leave qslide open). LG put everything they can in the notif window, the brightness and volume slider are always there without an option to remove them (or maybe I just havent found out how). But that’s not a deal breaker for me.

  21. Glen says:

    I was considering LG G2 but ended up with a Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

    Based on the reviews from Youtube videos, both units are okay. No doubt that this is the best phone LG made so far.

    But there are some problems with the G2
    first of all, the knock knock feature doesn’t work 100%.

    Built quality based on the drop test videos the LG G2’s screen shattered after 1 drop on the face. Samsung Note 3’s screen shattered after 2 drops :)

    You can check out Android Authority Drop test on youtube.

    On the good note, the back button works extremely well.

    I just opted for the Note 3 since I have a Note 2 and I do use the S-pen a lot.

    • butterweed says:

      You cant compare g2 and note3. The former is a smartphone while note3 is phablet. Personally, i can only go as big as smartphone because they can still fit inside my pants pocket.

    • Juan says:

      Hi Glen, i agree with your opinion on the rear button. it works well with me. it is actually the best feature of the phone. about comparing it to note 3 , there’s a big difference with the price of both units. so, for me, LG G2 is a better deal. espcially now, nakita ko na meron na silang postpaid plans sa mall c/o globe. just my thoughts!
