The G2 has 5.2 inch screen and has great ergonomics in terms of size and weight (143g). The volume button and on/off switch is positioned at the back of the phone and it works pretty well and makes lots of sense. Especially using the volume button at the back to take pictures works like a charm.
Music player is easy to navigate and plays all my HD Tracks (both FLAC and WAV) flawlessly. It sounded great on my earphones (FAD Heaven 6 and ToGo 334) at 50% volume. TH900 and W3000ANV need to be driven at 100% volume and they sound great as well. I will say that the sound quality is equivalent to Sony Walkman DAPs A-series. I bought the Korean set as it comes with micro sd slot and removable battery. So far, i can get full day of usage which is not bad considering it is 2160ma battery versus 3000ma in International version of the phone.
So far very happy with the 13 mega camera with image stabilization , full HD screen, form factor and very good sounding 24/192 music player.
Thanks for the report! I will definitely be checking them out when they are released in US in a few days. My I-9300 has become a pain, having been hit by the freezing/memory address bug. And seeing screen outside is a total joke.
Same here. Its was a tossup between the LG G2, Note 3, and Xperia Z1 for me. LG however just shot itself out of the running by not including expandable storage. Its such a massive blunder especially for a phone oriented towards Hi-Fi audio.
I just bought the G2 and it's amazing... I have a couple questions though....
Will I get the 24 bit 192 kHz playback if I listen to my music through spotify with extreme quality? Or will it sound the same as my last phone? (Galaxy Nexus) Also, is using a fiio E11 amp with my AKG k550 not needed with this phone to get better quality? Sorry guys I don't know that much about sound quality haha
