LG G2 Users Thread!

Recommended Posts

I'm not extremely worried about getting a CPO, but it does irk me just a little. As long as this one performs as it should and gives no probs, I'm not going to dwell much on the 79 phone calls made prior, or the prior 80 meg of data used before I got it. I didn't look it over with my jeweler loop but it seemed to look pretty decent.

Well apparently to corroborate the story as mentioned before, the guy says hes a Sprint employee... Not trying to fan the flames i just want to now if any employee can help us non Sprint employees understand if this is true

Y'all have more serious issues to deal with now... Apparently the G2 now suffers from post echoing. I seriously hope that LG addresses it on 1/24 with the Spark update. I just read about it on XDA. Any Sprint employee care to confirm?

 

Post echoing?  What does that mean?  do you have the XDA link?

I believe post echoing means that posts are being echoed in tapatalk that have already been posted...comes from having prior posts distorted or unreadable, or just plain ignored.

I just mean that the link from XDA about the Spark update has been posted 4 times since last night. Just my way of being a smartass about it.

Just able to get time to read through about 11 pages and I saw a post that no one replied to concerning the alarm glitching at the top when it is set. I have noticed this also and was curious if there was a fix for it. Thanks!

Yeah alarms still work fine, only thing that ive gotten use to is when you dismiss a akarm itbstays active unlike my note2 that would turn that alarm off untill you turn it back on. But other than that it works fine.

Ok so they announced the g flex release date today so I figure theyve got the spark update cleared up so we should prolly see that soon because the g flex is coming spark enabled. Does anyone else seem to think this also?

You have to check the days off and it won't repeat.. If the days are checked(blue) them it will repeat daily..

So you bought a new LG G2 on contract and you got a refurb version in the mail?  Wow that sucks.  I would exchange and complain to them that it is a refurb.

 

Won't get you anywhere. LG would send a refurnished unit out just like Sprint does. Sprint just works as the middle man so you don't have to send it in and wait for a replacement weeks later. Only if refurbished units aren't available will it be replaced with a new-in-box unit.

 

It's the same for every manufacturer and carrier. It is the same for anything related to electronics, not just phones.

 

Eventually with enough yelling you might get a new one, but in the process you will make every employee you talk to rethink their views of humanity, and the feeling of entitlement in the United States. But who cares about making employee's jobs hell? You got yourself a new-in-bos phone instead of a refurb, that is just as likely to have the same issues as your "brand new" first phone.

I was assuming if you are within your first 14 days of signing a new contract you should try to exchange and ask for a new one.  I agree that if you are outside of that 14 day window and are just reporting a warranty issue then a refurbished device is fine and by no means does a "new" vs. "refurbished" equate to less issues with a "new" device.

Any exchange within 14 days will be with a brand new device, no exception. This is policy. After that 14 days however, it will likely be with a refurbished unit, unless one isn't available. There is no advantage in the store ordering a refurbished handset instead of exchanging with a new model in store if they could as part of the 14 day return/exchange policy.

This phone is too shiny for my liking. I can see my reflection and it scares me.

Anyone bailing on the G2 for the Flex? I wonder which device is going to get more support from LG. I like that the G Flex has a usb 3.0, 3500 mah battery, multiwindow, self healing back but I don't like the 720P display or the lack of OIS. I like the G2 size better but I wish it had usb 3.0 and multiwindow. I can live without the rest. If the LG Flex comes out to be the better RF performer even after the G2 gets its Spark update I might sell it and get the Flex.

Nope no plans to bail on the G2.  While the G Flex does have a nice 3500 maH beefy battery and the self healing back, I have been pretty happy with the G2 so far.  What i don't like is the 720P display, the possible grip of the phone (wide and long)  and now that you mention the lack of OIS sucks.  

 

To address your concerns you can enable multiwindow on the G2 by flashing a mulitiwindow mod via TWRP from XDA here.  The mod was extracted from a LG G Flex korean version system dump back around Thanksigiving:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2544206

 

In fact I posted a picture in this thread that shows off my phone with the multiwindow function enabled by flashing that mod from XDA:

Also the USB 2.0 vs. 3.0 thing is not that big of a deal to me.  Like 98% of the time I charge via AC adapter and it shouldn't really make a difference in charging times over AC power.  The only benefit of USB 3.0 is the charging via USB is quicker and faster transfer rates.  The LG G2 charges pretty quickly from 1% to 100% in about 1.5 hrs.

No doubt.  I see my mirror image, and it is striking.  Plus, my posts and articles reflect a remarkable intellect.

 

Scary, indeed...

I was having the same problem with the Swype keyboard disappearing. I disabled the dictionary sync (don't remember the exact setting but it is where you sign in and it syncs your dictionary words from other devices) and I have not had the problem since.

I'm sure you know how the G2 fairs with RF.

 

Lg Flex

 PCS CDMA/EVDO - 24.11dBm

 LTE Band 25 - 23.38 dBm

 LTE Band 26 - 23.91 dBm

 LTE Band 41 - 23.19 dBm

 

LG G2

 PCS CDMA/EVDO - 24.80 dBm

 LTE Band 25 - 23.49 dBm

 LTE Band 26 - 24.48 dBm

 LTE Band 41 - 21.34 dBm

Nope because I have confidence that Sprint can fix the RF issues on the G2.  They use the same chip anyways.  Even if the G Flex has a better signal by 2-5 dBm, it is not enough to sway me.
