It's the EOL for the LG G2 on Bell?
No need to send flowers, or to feel sad. It is just a part of the cycle of being a phone. According to a leaked screenshot from a Bell document, the LG G2 is going on the carrier's EOL list. Being placed on "The End of Life" list means that the phone can no longer be re-ordered once stock has run out. And while it is sad that a handset once so full of life has been placed on the list, there are some good things to think about coming from this news.

First of all, this news means that a replacement is on the way, namely the LG G3. We've seen a sharp pick up in leaks relating to the device, which means that it probably won't be too long now before LG gives birth to a new flagship. The leaked document notes that until that happens, reps should recommend the Nexus 5, or the Samsung Galaxy S4.

The other positive thing that we can take away from this news, is that carriers like Bell just might look to get rid of their remaining LG G2 inventory by cutting prices on the LG G2. Speaking of the latter, just try to remember how the poor phone looked in its prime.

Yeah for sure.. I never knew it was very quick.. Even the S4 has a longer lifecycle.. I guess the 4.4.2. android update would be the last update for LG G2.. RIP..

As expected, LG always has bad reputation when it comes to build quality, customer service, as well as software update, LG g2 itself overpriced, yet sluggish, and lack of app developer support... No surprise on it tho

lol omg. What does this have to do with LG's quality, service and updates...? Plus, what I have seen the G2 is the cheapest flagship phone released last fall. Well, I guess that comment was expected from "FriendsOfSamsung", no surprises there.

I hope you are joking. Samsung is the one who is overpriced, IMO. LG G2 with SD800 is about the same price as S4 with SD600. (~325 EUR). LG is giving much more bang for your buck, duude.

Look who's talking lmao, I find you trolling every samsung article and I enjoy making fun of you. hey did you get the z2? or you are waiting for the z3 next month as they'll launch together it seems. but hey, don't use it's 4K camera, the phone lags overheats and crashes. so keep it fhd, 4K is for Samsung. and hey, remember the article about the z2? lmao you couldn't even reply. Hey, I love market share too you know, but I dislike wannabe products no one buys and this includes sony lg htc and zeeee glorious nokia, connecting people.

I'm so curious to see how people like you react when Samsung will eventually lose their market share to other manufacturers. I know it's not gonna happen this year. Maybe not next year. But eventually it will fall. Then let's say if Sony for example has the highest sales, will you turn your back to Samsung or still keep kissing their toes or what?

humm, this seems to be happening to all companies at some point. And the prophets of doom have been saying this about Samsung since the GS2, well samsung just keeps climbing up. the GS5 created such a hype among people that I doubt the apocalypse is near for samsung and the way samsung handles markets and sees what people want to buy and releases 10 devices/week with each seemingly specifically designed for just a city in a small country. and look at the GS5, Samsung is so smart it has put an ip67 to drown sony a fingerprint to mock apple and the usual excellent endless lists of features and goodies you get from a samsung flagship. If samsung carries on this way.. well, I have some bad news for you my friend. and hey, yeah I'm a fan, I admire the way Samsung controls everything.. and hey if I can get split window air view ir blaster s beam from another reliable durable brand, as these are my strict needs from a smartphone, I may consider switching .. but now, it seems far away .. I adore apple iPads though, gonna get a mini 2 soon.

lol since GS2? That's the one Samsung I think was the best phone at it's time. The hype GS5 was mainly negative (well yeah not mainly but you know, compared to GS4 for example) and I would see the slow (note: slow) downfall start from here.

:D For a city in a small country lol? Yeah they still release S3 versions... S3 Neo and S3 Slim (which isn't even slim at 9,3 mm). They flood the market with budget and mid range phones instead of making 2 or maybe 3 good phones into one category.

GS5 waterproofing already had issues and it's not as highly waterproof as Sony, the fingerprint scanner is much worse than in iPhone. It's not specially smart to take features from other manufacturers... It's just normal stuff to keep up with the competitors. And if they're so smart, where are the stereo speakers for example? Sure S5 has many "cool" features, mostly software based, that no other offers, but all of my friends with an S4 never even use those things... They show them off once and then get depressed because everyone said it's useless and then he/she understood it too.

Until Samsung offers a premium looking/feeling phone with a sophisticated UI it's a no for me.

what negative hype? sony and nokia fans on tech sites? I mean no one ever heard of the z2 among thousands of people i meet everyday in university or work, and all are hyped by the GS5. IP67 is great in the GS5 and what about the fingerprint? Samsung just makes fun of companies and mocks them. sony prides itself with ip67 and it was one of the reasons zs sold, well no more. and yes they release many variations and once I read this is a marketing strategy said a samsung exec. you find the need of the people and release devices that suit every need and floods smartphones stores so you see samsung everywhere and has whatever budget you want to spend on and that's why samsung sells in enormous quantities and controls nearly all segments. please tell me about sony's problems, in manufacturing or in distributing they can't make a phone goddamit! look at the Z2 lmao maybe they'll release it next year? and hey, it may hurt but touchwiz is the most sophisticated UI that's why 30 years old+ get funnily lost when handling a samsung it's so full of features, they are not used to more than a candy bar phone ( they can buy a z it has a f@rt noise feature). features they never use? like what? they never use? stop making excuses to why sony doesn't have many things and comes really short of samsung in all aspects, and i repeat, i expect NOTHING absolutely NOTHING from a company which can't sell it's device and can't manufacture it and can't get the providers to work on time and will sell it's flaship the next year, and plus has a newer one coming next month which really craps the original z that is now totally outdated while the S4 is still second best. talk about availability of parts, repairs. if a company can't release it's phone wow when are we going to get parts for it? If someone is ever going to challenge Mighty Samsung, it's not the sony of the 80s nor the sold nokia or the bankrupt fail hard htc, it's going to be cheap chinese crap phones which will eat up market share in asia, but to look at a company the proper marketing, devices, services and options to push Samsung out, I can't find any. and you know Samsung has truly become the new apple, but has become the apple for everyone. I see people go into stores and ask for an affordable samsung, the owner says hey why not a nokia? or sony? or an htc desire 500? you have to see the smiles on their faces and how they say they want a Samsung and repeat it and look at his depressed face. you may mock the example i just said, but hey that's the way things go. you can't expect anything from loser companies which fail in many aspects. It's not about creating a faster phone than the S5 with an extra gig of ram nor it's glass or metal ... it's proper studying of the markets and knowing the needs and having the funds to provide those along with a big marketing campaign. search samsung in wikipedia you'll what samsung is, it's not a nokia. and being a hater reading the article will really creep you and depress you.

Me? Close minded? That's the one sentence I would use to describe you to someone... Only care about Samsung... Only care what they do... Your whole thoughts are so biased it's sad to read your posts. You think Samsung is a god, worship them like your life depends on it. Don't even give a chance to others... You don't even care what the others do... Just "SAMSUNG SAMSUNG UUUH BABE". Not even Lampriya is as a stubborn person as you are... I can imagine you sending love letters to Mr. Choi and having orgasms with your lovely little GS4. Get a life man. Come out of the cave and see how much beauty there is in the world.

Yes, 80's music rocks.

The G2 can run circles around most if not all flagships that are out right now, even the new ones. I guess your username should have hinted at the stupidity that is your comment.

I'm agree with you.. In my country, LG is no good on their quality assurance.. I've got three unit of their smartphones, but there were always a defect, especially on their screen, even on my G2 (there is a dust inside the screen,not dead pixel).. I want to prove to my parents if samsung and apple were not the only best smartphones right out there, like LG, HTC, and Sony. But LG fails me to prove them. Until now, I used my nexus 5 and it runs flawlessly.

First let me say that my LG G2 is not all sluggish, the price was reasonable for a high end phone and I definitely don't regret buying it. Can't wait to see the G3. I hope you Samsung lovers have great phones but my experience with my S3 convinced me to try another brand.

This is just Bell being Bell. They EoL devices at a fast pace. Both the Z1 and Z Ultra hit EoL recently. The M7 hit EoL many months ago. What they keep on can be a little odd at times (the S4 is still around as a premium device, and the sole WP device remains the Ativ S).

Unlike most that comment on here, I actually have owned the S4, One, Note 2, Note 3, G, G Pro, G2...I can honestly say the the G2 does everything excellent. The display is awesome, the speed is phenomenal, the battery life is insane, call quality, ....just wow.
Plastic build, and software...are really more of someone's opinion...LG updated it to 4.4.2 2 months ago so I'm nit sure why the hate there. The G3 will be a iconic device.

Ok, but are they updating in the future? Because a lot of people (like me) has the device and also have no reason to change.

Also stop whining about LG and poor updates...Note 3 on Verizon doesn't have 4.4.2!! And the G2 does. Stop blaming the carriers people.

I think the LG G2 is a great device overall, the performance, the size, the specs but has a poor camera. I also thought the build quality was so light and cheap feeling.

I use my girlfriends G2 only for playing games and compared to my Lumia 520, the G2 really feels cheap in hand.

Hopefully the G3 brings a build quality like that of the Nexus 5 or better.
