Default Wanting to buy a G2

So my HTC One gave up and i'm looking for a replacement. I'll mostly be using this phone recording live music in concerts and shows. How is the quality of the audio when recording in loud venues? The HTC one handles this very good. And are there problems with the auto focus in the G2? Cause i've been watching some sample vids on youtube and it looks like it always goes on and off focus.

Since the non-expandable storage is limited, I suggest you look elsewhere. The sound recording isn't great either. In fact, the video recording is not the best...
Moto G 16GB (Good noddy phone for Mrs Ash)
Sony Xperia ZL - Actually better than the Z for me - and LOUD!
LG G2 D802 - rooted Stock with Bloat removed
HTC One - good and terrible in One package
iPAD 2

I tried to record in a club which I think is the loudest environment and it was horrible but for theatre or music concerts I think its fine

Best phone for concert recording is the HTC One. The G2 sounds distorted if recording anything with bass. If that is the sole purpose for the phone, I suggest you get the One again.

Imo the G2 is horrible in low light conditions. The camera has a tough time recording or capturing anything smoothly and the 60fps is unusable at night. It shines on daylight however.
