    the call quality on these phones is borked. great hardware otherwise. oh and they were touted as having GG3 which they don't.. infact the screens scratch very easily.

    Some reviewers said it had gg3, it was NEVER advertised as having such! GG3 is pretty much GG2, just thinner..... You are in the minority on call quality from all opinios i have heard. Maybe a replacement was in order....

    Call quality on mine (AT&T) is excellent. I've read about some Verizon owners hearing squelching on calls, but it were widespread I think we'd be hearing more about it. *shrug*

    good riddance? you are sad.

    the call quality issue is wide spread and its a phone wide issue. some people just don't make phone calls.

    ^ That's never been reported in any review done on this phone. None. I've never had any issues and I do make lots of calls. Likewise, the vast majority of owners haven't either. I don't think only a few are making calls.

    With that said, sorry you had this issue and if it was me having the issue, I'd have returned it too. Better luck next time with whatever you get.

    Dude, you're sad. I don't get why people feel the need to come to forums and proclaim they are returning their phones. Who cares? Enjoy your next phone. That's the beauty of having choices.

    By the way, read the forums. Call quality is not an issue.

    Totally agree. It's not coincidence that as a phone gets more and more popular, the trolls (not saying the OP is one) come out and trash the phone with nonsense. The G2 could very well be the phone of the year. If anything, it's putting LG back on the map (or on the map).

    Because it's a forum? To have conversations about phones? I don't understand why people get so **** hurt.

    With that said, I also have poor call quality.

    If your upset with call quality take the phone back you have 14 days. Switch over to iPhone 5s. That'll make your life so much easier. The iPhone 5s trumps every phone on the market. You'll be happy you switched. My G2 is rock solid no heat, no **** pour sound quality, truly best android phone I've had.

    Rather than getting all worked up...even though I think OhAlfie was a little harsh why not ask others if they have issues? The general consensus most people have seen that are using the device have had nothing but great call quality, the reviews also reflect that. Is it possible there is something wrong with your phone?? Why not go return it with that complaint get a replacement and see if it happens again?

    If you opted not to do the above I can see how someone may feel you simply are attempting to create some big thread out of nothing.

    No issues with call quality on my end. It is possible that the OP got a bad device.

    I can empathize with the OP if the issue is the same as mine, or as irritating, that I posted many times here about... unwanted digital special effects in your ear. I went through 3 G2's with the same issue (one of which also overheated) and the verizon store employees heard it on all three and agree it's messed up. It's almost maddening that others get to enjoy their G2 when I tried my best to get a working one, but I'm going to give up after 3. It's not worth the aggravation and verizon may not have let me exchange any more. Of course I've also tried 2 Moto X's also with defective mic, so 5 bad phones in a month is about my quota before going insane. I'm going to forget it for a while and appreciate my sluggish galaxy S but at least I can make phone calls and have two-way conversations with it. Also, my galaxy S almost consistently had 5-10 dBm better CDMA voice signal strength than the G2. At times I was shocked at how horribly low the signal level was. I didn't have any way of comparing the 4G signal though.

    By the way I tried an iphone 5s in the store and I didn't think it was anything special, I thought the G2 (when it works) was better.

    Really five phones all back to back and all defective? I've never had a defective phone... I've never heard of anyone having defective phones in my personal life, three faulty LG G2s and two faulty Moto X and still no solution? I personally would just go back to a land line hahaha

    this. why tell the forum you returned your phone? to make us feel like we have an inferior phone or something? if this happened to me...i dont see the point of....returning it....going back on my computer...going to android central...simply to tell the rest of the world I returned a phone I didnt like.

    Comparisons on the other hand..that at least makes more sense.

    This is the most unbelievable post I have ever read on a phone forum. There is absolutely no way you could get 5 defective phones in a month. The problem is certainly with the operator.

    So are you saying the verizon store employees and managers who witnessed all these problems are also using the phone incorrectly? And tech support lied to me when she called me on my moto x and said she could only barely make out what I was saying and she declared it DOA anyway? Whatever, believe what you want. Verizon sales people and customer service told me they get defective units all the time, it's just what to expect.

    I do agree however that it's highly unlikely that I get 5 defective phones in a row if you go by statistics and probability of failure, etc. unless they were all bad in one manufacturing batch and I got them all from the same batch. The LG I am not convinced is a hardware defect, could be design flaw or firmware bug. In which case all G2's have the problem but may not surface unless the right conditions are met.

    My moto x and G2 problems are shared by others on these and other forums so it's not like it could be operator error.

    You know, it is quite possible he is having call issues. Heck, the Galaxy S3/S4 are some of the best selling smartphones and they have terrible signal issues...yet people gobble them up and love them...claiming 'no problems'.

    I think I'll upgrade to a G2 eventually...just waiting for used prices to drop.
