Review:
LG G2 ?€” Emmazed Photog


I liked this quote:
In regards to software, the phone’s 3000maH merely sips battery life, while other current Android devices drink it.

most of the cons are pretty silly:
1- get a case
2- subjective
3-definitely true, use titanium backup to freeze or uninstall bloat
4- I like the menu button. recent apps is still accessible so there's no loss in functionality
5- the stock keyboard is actually really good for a stock keyboard. I use Swype, though, and there are plenty of other alternatives that are also better than stock.

Lmao worst cons ever, it looks like he struggle to come up with bad things. The phone is rectangular, I don't like rectangles

He could have just shrunk that list of cons down to "I don't like it". :p

Those are valid cons if you ask me. Samsung gets hate for those exact same things and no one insults reviewers for saying that...

IMO biggest drawback on G2 camera is slow shutter and it is over sensitive to light. Each time I take picture on an object that have specific colors, it become overexposed and oversaturated. It's really hard to take pic for object with color like these : dark purple, dark coffee. Magenta, cyan, army/dark green.
