    Post Just ordered a G2 and have a couple questions

    •I know the Verizon G2 has Qi or wireless charging. Can I get nay brand or is there anything special that makes the LG one work better? If I can get any brand, do you have any recommendations? And is it possible for Qi to work with a case on?
    •Is LG's QuickWindow case any good (in terms of protection)? Or is it one of those "gimmicky" things like fingerprint scanners?
    •This is my first Android phone, switching from an iPhone. I think I recall seeing on the HTC One that there is a utility to seamlessly transfer your information. Is there any "one click method" for the G2? Or do I have to manually transfer everything?

    This is my first post here so I hope I didn't mess anything up but I'm excited to switch!

    The G2 is a great phone. Amazing battery life, camera, and it's really fast.

    You should be able to use other wireless chargers using the same technology. A Nexus 4 charger could probably be found for pretty good price.

    The value of the QuickWindow case depends on how you plan to use the G2. If you like the idea of being able to quickly play music, view the time and answer calls, then the case might be worth $50.

    LG has their version of Kies (Samsung). I believe it's called LG PC Suite. It can transfer certain things to the phone. I transferred my contacts and apps through Google since I already had it set up for other phones. Music from iTunes can be transferred using apps like easy phone tunes.

    Yes, you can use several different brands of wireless chargers. The very best I've found is the TYLT VU one. I have two of them including one for my g2 and one for my nexus 7. It works through a double layer of leather case on my 7. They are expensive but no fiddling around trying to find the sweet spot.

    As far as the Quick Window case, don't get your hopes up in terms of protecting you phone in case of drops. A minor drop will probably be fine. I have one, and I really like the window, but there is absolutely no material other than a thin piece of plastic around most of the phone's frame to protect it in case of a drop from your ear level. If you're not accident-prone, it's a decent case. I use it at work and switch out with a Cruizer Lite TPU case when I know I am going to be outdoors, just for the added protection.

    I use the Nokia charger for my G2. I'm getting better about finding the sweet spot but at first I had to move the phone around a bit to get it to stay charging. It does charge through my case just fine though.

    These are not cheap, but they charge in just about any position, charge very quickly, and you can still view your screen while they charge. I have a blue one and love it.

    Does your wireless charger work pretty well for you? Does it charge your phone fairly quick? I'd prefer the fancier one but don't feel like forking up about $70 for a wireless way to charge my phone.

    I don't have the charger yet. I purchased the same one from this seller back when I had a Droid DNA and it worked great. I will report back when it comes in.

    My wife and I both got new Verizon G2s. Can anyone recommend a good Qi charger that will charge both (in cases) simultaneously?

    Charger works great and came in nice condition for being used. Well worth the $20.
