The camera ui is a complete rip off, the mode option, then the beauty shot and a couple of the settings, they didn't even bother changing the names or the thumbnails of the modes!

Who cares. Everyone copies everyone else. This camera has OIS. S4 doesn't. Tracking zoom. S4 doesn't. They added some extra things. Copied Samsung. So what?

I want to give this phone a fair shake, but the buttons on the back... Just a bit of a turn off to me, for now. Have to get this in my hands for a test drive to see if it changes how I feel.

It makes so much more sense to have the buttons where your fingers are or close to your fingers. I can't tell you how annoying it is to fiddle with buttons on the right or the top depending on the manufacturer. Some are too low some are too high. Some are too flat and you can't feel them like the HTC ONE. These buttons are a revelation. I hope they patented it or everyone will copy it soon. It's one of those things that make you wonder why nobody did it before.

Very Good Coverage!! Having an N4 already,I can't help but extrapolate these new features out in a positive way. Given the basic mem size of the phone(32gig), plus the ability to add up to an additional 64gig chip makes this phone remarkable. I would (could) have concerns about the fragility of the phone,but yesterday the N4 took a header onto blacktop @ 12mph off a bicycle and a $9 case saved it. I like this phone, and with these 8 videos, I'm ready to get dirty with it.

There is no memory expansion on this phone.

There is. There are 2 models. LG G2 D802 = no sd card. LG G2 F320 = sd card and removable battery. I'm sure you can get the F320 online if they don't bring it to the USA officially.

the 32gb version costs more than the 16gb version also. i'm willing to bet more people get the 16gb version (since it's cheaper) then complain about not having enough storage space because there's no microsd slot.

I'm sure the sales people will tell. Or people will ask. 32GB G2 D802 3000mAh Or 16GB G2 f320 2610mAh removable battery with an SD card. You can choose. 16GB D802 is a no buy for me because the videos will eat the memory too quickly. Android + LG UI is about 8GB.

Well. Note 3 has been unveiled. Looks like more of the same to me. Would still buy a Note 2 if I had to get a Samsung, but Samsung UI looks hideous to me.

The g2 is no doubt the best handset at this moment, looks like LG has been improving a lot lately. Keep it up LG!

I'm curious about the battery life with that huge display and all the multitasking features it has.... any idea on that? or the relase date for the US?

It has a 3,000 mAh battery, so it shouldn't be much of a problem. And the little boost in battery life due to the GRAM helps. No release date has been set or leaked to my knowledge

The battery tests are out already. 25 hrs talk time 11+ hours 3G browsing 11+ hours video.

It has a 3000 Amh battery, there will be no concern unless the phone is not optimized to take advantage of this. This battery size is approaching the Moto Max territory. LG has definitely improved, we will see what user experience is like over the next few months. It all comes down to big battery, small bezels, ability to take notes and all screen showing on the phone. I will make a new purchase in October and by then all the big boys should be out and feedback will start to come in.

Their screen saves like what did they say 26% more batter, more efficient processor, big battery. This is the best phone to date. Screw the haters it looks nothing like an S4 and the button placement is nothing short of awesome. Unless you're missing an index finger.. Then sucks for you

With the power, volume up. and volume down controls on the rear you shouldn't need to remove G2 from your ear to turn up the volume or turn it down. No more hunting for controls.
