    I am actually a bit disappointed with the speaker. I was trying to watch a video last night in bed. I had to cup my one hand behind the bottom of the phone (where the speaker is) so that the speaker could be more easily heard. IMO, this is the only thing that I like better on the the HTC One.
    Also, is the Verizon version Mono? I only hear (and see) one speaker. Otherwise, I really love this phone.
    Yes, the Verizon version is mono. No version of the G2 has stereo speakers. It's just an aesthetic touch on the AT&T/international version to hide the mic hole.

    Ahhh, thanks. I falsely assumed that the two speakers holes were stereo speakers. Not that stereo speakers placed so closely together at the bottom of the phone would make a difference.

    Don't feel bad. I've seen 3 reviewer videos (professional tech reviewers mind you) assume that the AT&T/international version have stereo. I honestly would like to know how loud the speakers are. The speakers on my Gnex were unacceptable (quiet and very distorted), but I love the speakers on my Razr Maxx HD. Crazy loud and very clear. I didn't get a chance to test them when I was playing with the phone in store (pushy salesmen everywhere).

    I agree. I've had the phone unplugged for about 3.5 hours. I picked it up and it is still at 93%. I've made 1 phone call, sent a couple of IMs and played with it here and there. My GNex would have been well under 80% by now. I had the extended battery on it. Not an aftermarket battery, the Sansung extended battery which I think was somewhere around 2100mah.

    The G2 is a bit louder and clearer than the GNex. (What I just upgraded from). I don't have a Maxx HD to compare to. My wife has a Razr Maxx. I can compare that, but it would have to be this evening.

    If you would, that'd be awesome. I've never really had any complaints about a Motorola phone speaker so it'd be a good baseline, for me at least.

    I thought the speaker was pretty loud, had Netflix on last night while cleaning the kitchen and I could hear it pretty good. Way better then the GNex but I'm sure nothing like the One.

    if you really are an LG rep can you explain how it was widely reported when the phone was launched that it had gorilla glass 3.. but it actually doesnt have it? did you guys change your mind or what happened?

    Ok....unscientific test. I placed both phones on the same spot. Had my wife stand at the same spot. Called each phone from my home phone. Both cell phones had speaker volume set to max. Here is what my wife said.
    The G2 was louder than the Maxx. They were equally as clear.
    Just to reiterate. The other phone was a Razr Maxx, the generation before the Razr Maxx HD.

    Ran into a serous issue and that is charging, I don't have the luxury of being in a house ever day, I us my tractors 12 volt plugs to charge every thing. So the same hi powered cord n plug I charge my nexus 4 n 7 with can't even charge the G2. That's crazy they said the S800 was a fast charger. I can't even finish setting up my G2 because I can't charge it. That's wrong. Oh a oberservation my nexus 4 feels small compared to the G2.

    Me too. I really hate how hot it gets, especially if I have to make a phone call. But everything else about the phone is phenomenally great.

    I have the VZW version as well and this is what my status bar looks like. Did you do anything special when you added the wifi network? Like maybe use the tutorial? If it is wifi that I'm looking @...



    Maybe post your firmware from the settings menu?

    Was this on speakerphone or the earpiece?

    Off topic here.....darn you original poster for the name of your thread. Every time I see this thread title, the old VengaBoys We like to party starts playing over and over in my head. Sometimes for an hour or two. I then struggle to get it out. By the time I've finally gotten that tune out of my head, I come back to the forums and the vicious cycle starts all over again.
