This thread will be used to discuss the Flagship of LG, and the elder sibling of the Nexus 5, LG G2. You can cite news, reviews, photos taken with the G2, discuss issues and ask for information, I'll try to help the best I can.

Features taken from GSMArena.

INFO:
A useful information, since its very difficult to get a G2 screenguard in the streets and stores sell them for ~200-300/-, you can fit the Grand screenguard on the G2 perfectly, just need to cut a small bit on top, and a screenguard from grand in streets starts at 70-90/-

More information on rooting, custom kernels, pricing, accesories etc are coming soon.

its still too costly IMO, especially without non expandable memory its a deal breaker... I wanted it so badly for its battery life and gorgeous display... will either wait for price for 32gb to drop to less than 30k or new flagships to arrive.
BTW lg will announce G2's younger sibling G2 mini on the 24th Feb

there should be a price cut of all 2013 flagships post the MWC on February 24th. I would think the G2 prices will fall down to N5+1-2k levels by then

are you using any case with this phone? hows the grip without case?
Using the free quick window case, the back of the phone is also textured, so even without the case, grip is fine, well, as good as any plastic can provide. Never dropped the phone once.

This doesn't really sound good but the G2 might be a different story
G2 kitkat has already rolled out for most carriers, India will get it soon.
Also GPro is definitely getting it.
So G might get it, not sure though.

This looks good for G2 users:

Though wireless storage removes any need for cables at all, this can be used for a fast backup.

I never knew that the lg smartworld app offers dozens of home themes, fonts, keyboard themes etc, g2 users or even other lg users should check then out.

Will it work on 4.4.2 or needs a stock ROM? If it works, then I'm going to try it. :D
