    Default Question(s) for current LG G2 owners

    How do you like the UI compared to touch wiz?

    How do you like it on its own without being compared?

    Do you love the phone but hate the UI?

    What are the cons you have seen so far?

    thanks :-)

    I'll admit that I don't have a whole lot of experience with Touchwiz, but I did check out the S4 before going with the G2 and I even checked out the Note 3 after when I went back to Verizon to get a case. Touchwiz causes a lot of lag and I think part of that is because of all of the legacy code in the background. I've yet to have a hiccup with the G2.

    I really wish the tech sites didn't spout off about it being a Touchwiz ripoff. It's not even close in my opinion. I love everything about the phone. I've had experience with stock, Sense, and Asus' UI aside from LG's current UI and so far LG's is my favorite.

    I don't want to seem like a fanboy just because I have the phone, but I honestly can't think of any cons. Maybe the lack of changing the shape of the folders to look like stock and possibly not keeping the transparent task bar when using non-stock wallpapers, but those are really minute and it doesn't make me enjoy the phone any less.

    I haven't had any issues. I don't use GPS a whole lot, but when I do it's been good for me. I've had no issues with it locking on to my location and it doesn't matter if I'm in the house, a parking garage, or whatever.

    Well let me give you my perspective. I have had every highly anticipated device that has come out this year and so far this one is my favorite. I'm really indifferent to LG's UI vs Touchwiz in terms of looks but in performance(I'd take Sense 5 over both), at least on this device LG's is much smoother. Touchwiz can lag at time and I haven't really experienced noticeble lag outside of a 3rd party app that needs to be forced closed. I like the hardware a lot better but the S4 is super light for a device of it's size so this is just a preference. I'm fine with the camera and all radios function properly and not issues with them. Now the buttons are hit and miss with the user. For me, I can't say that I'm overly in love with the placement, but I will say that it isn't a problem for me. I also wish there was a 64GB option or at least SD card but we already know the deal there so not going to go down that road. Lastly, I'll comment on the display. This display is better than the S4. No question about that. One of things I really like about it. If I had to rate based on ym own usuage with the devices it would be G2>One>S4. They are all great devices and you can't really go wrong with them. For the most part the thing that separates these are personal preference.

    >>> I probably would've returned it if I had no experience with Launchers. Honestly, Nova Prime is the reason why I kept it. Not just the G2 but android in general.

    Don't get me wrong I love it the 5.2" is perfect and the lack of bezel is just amazing! Again I'm that anal about the UI. I mean bought icon packs from the play store.


    What are the cons you have seen so far?

    >>> Placing the buttons on the back is a nice change but I already had an incident where I activated Developer mode in Nova that freaked me out. See "WTF happened to my G2." LOL

    thanks :-)

    I have seen a few threads about people having issues with this. So far, I have had no issues at all with my VZW G2. It has actually worked better than my previous Android devices.

    I feel the UI gives more customization then TouchWiz. The two are really similar though, so if you are used to TouchWiz the LG UI will be easy to pick up on. I feel the LG UI is smoother then TouchWiz. I have had a GS2 and GS3 and they always seemed to get bogged down at some point, and I feel it was because of TouchWiz.

    I love the size of the screen, the screen quality, the camera and the overall speed of the device.

    The cons for me that I have noticed so far, are: Sometimes the touch screen gets confused and freaks out. The only way I can fix this is to turn the screen off and back on. Not a major issue, but I think this has been a known LG issue for years, I remember it being this way on the Optimus G as well. Another thing I am not thrilled out is the speaker quality. It seems very low and when playing games or watching videos while holding the phone sideways, the natural location for your hand is to cover up the speaker. I just feel compared to my GS3 the G2's speaker is subpar for sounds, games and music. Not saying that it's a deal breaker, but overall it has nowhere near the output.

    I came from the Note 2 to the LG G2. On the Note 2 I used the Apex launcher. So, I pretty much took touch wiz out of the equation. At least on surface of it. On my LG G2 I am not using a third party launcher. With the ability to change icons and themes (At least on the Verizon version) there is no reason not to love the UI. I find this phone to be the best I have ever had.

    How do you like the UI compared to touch wiz?
    I came from the galaxy 3. This UI is much smoother, without any noticeable lag that I would get on there.

    How do you like it on its own without being compared?
    The best phone I've ever owned. Best part, hands down, is the battery life.

    Do you love the phone but hate the UI?
    No. I enjoy both, and the UI actually has some nice features built into it. Floating Apps, Clip Tray, knock knock are all useful tools.

    What are the cons you have seen so far?
    Only thing I've seen, is the external speaker isn't as loud as I would like on some things.

    As someone who has dealt exclusively with Galaxy S devices for over 3 years, I can tell you that I was initially apprehensive about going to an LG phone and dealing with LG 's UI, since I saw it as nothing more than a TouchWiz ripoff.

    Having switched to the G2 over a month ago from a Note 2, I can safely say that I have actually grown to love LG 's UI. Calling it a TouchWiz ripoff couldn't be further from the truth. Visual similarities aside, LG 's UI is superior in every conceivable way. Gone are the glitches and micro lags I've experienced with TouchWiz even on my overclocked 1.8 Ghz Note 2 and even the S4. LG 's UI is infinitely more customizable, has the performance of stock android (lag free), and is very eye pleasing.

    There's so many features that I'm finding more and more every day. The thing I like the most, coming from stock android and TouchWiz is that anything you don't like can be removed/ disabled. This is the first time I'm content with no reason to change launchers. Anyone who overlooks the G2 and/or LG because of past experiences and because they're not as big as Samsung is doing themselves a great disservice.

    It is actually almost the same. I like it a lot.

    I like the back buttons, how long the battery last. It last all day for me and the camera is pretty good. Not as good as my Nokia Lumia 920.
    Do you love the phone but hate the UI?
    I love the ui and the phone. I like the feature how a texts and come in and you do a quick response. You can also put an app in the background and make it transparent. Pretty neat.
    What are the cons you have seen so far?
    T-Mobile version doesn't have group messaging in the stock app. Also the pics are nice but not as good as my Lumia 920 or rather many other windows phones. Coming from Windows phone I find the os much more cumbersome to do the same things. The stock keyboard is horrible. I keep missing the space bar with a period. Lastly, autocorrect on this phone is the reason why there is a website called damn you autocorrect. I never knew what the issue was because on windows phone it has a very good auto correct.

    I really like this phone a lot. No problems at all for me. I like it more than every other current phone available on the market today. I chose this phone over the HTC One and S4 due to its capabilities and ease of use.

    One of the best if not the best on the market today.

    Only down is The CIQ on the AT&T model but CIQ can be disabled through a couple of key strokes.

    Best screen IMHO and the screen beats my wife's Moto X AMOLED screen hands down.

    Not a fan boy, but this is really a great phone and I would not trade it for anything available on the market today.
