    LG G2 Users Thread!

    Battery for me is the same as Kit Kat. I get 4-6 hrs SOT depending on what I'm doing and where I'm at. Xposed works quite well on Lollipop too. I'm only running G3 Tweaksbox to change the data icon in the status bar and remove the battery icon though. No other modules installed. I much prefer the UI style of LP and wouldn't go back to KK for anything. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  2. I'm not putting up with this beast much longer. My contract is done in November. I'll evaluate it then, but I have little confidence anything will change. Paying nearly $170/month for 2 lines (with device insurance) and not being to reliably use data driven apps is nonsense. I've been with Sprint for 10+ yrs and it's always "soon" when it comes to the network. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  3. I'm still getting junk data speeds all over the metro and I'm starting to wonder if it's my G2. Trying to do anything requiring data is a struggle. This was in the Hyvee Gas parking lot on SE 14th This was in the parking lot of Orielly's in Altoona This was is the lot of QT at Euclid and 235. B41 and 23mbps down. If only that, or hell even half of that, was available all over DSM I'd be happy. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  4. I'm ridiculously close to that youth homes campus. Way closer than the other tower. I'm at NW 51st and NW Beaver, so I wonder why it's not grabbing that tower. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  5. Latest speedtest from home It doesn't seem to be my phone (G2) either considering it pulled 18mbps speeds in another location. I've never seen anything close to what you say you go on Merle Hay Rd. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  6. Here are mine from the last few days. The really bad ones were in Urbandale and where I live in Johnston, toward the end of Merle Hay Rd. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  7. Seems like data all over the metro has been very slow for me over the last couple weeks. Anyone else having this? Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  8. Yes, all have been unlocked for a while now. The ZVA update brought Spark capability and an ugly spinning icon. ZVC is the newest which is Kit Kat. Sent from my LG-LS980 using Tapatalk
  9. I said 1 or 2 bands because I know we don't have Spark and didn't know if Sprint was using just 1 band in non Spark markets or 2. So it's 1,3,or none. Tri band is what pulled me to the G2 initially. That and it's a all around monster. Thanks for the info guys.
  10. Can anyone tell me if the Spark update for the G2 is of any benefit to users here in the Des Moines area. It enables bands 26 and 41. I know we are not a Spark city but I don't know if we have a single band or 2. Thanks
  11. Something has changed or I am seeing a fluke. I've posted before about having the G2 which we all know is a victim of that fallback issue. I was able to go into the hidden menu and choose lte only mode last night and used it for a while. Since it can't get calls while in that mode, I switched it back. This morning I did the same thing for a bit. However, upon going back to cdma+Lte/evdo auto, I watched it go to 3g then back to lte on its own. It's been hooked up to lte for over an hour now. Calls come and go just fine, then back to lte when the calls end. It shouldn't be doing this yet though right? Still on PCI 240 for lte.
  12. Unfortunately the G2 doesn't have an lte only mode. The only options are global and cdma/Lte, so no usable lte for g2 owners until it's all sorted out.
  13. G2 just now got 5.68 down and 3.03 up in Johnston. I live on the just east of Merle Hay and South of Beaver. Not far from the Johnston library and Camp Dodge. Switched the G2 from global to CDMA/Lte then back to global and it hooked up long enough to run Ookla and then it switched back to 3g. Hopefully not being able to hold 4g doesn't stick around a whole lot longer.
