To the OP, I get no lag in games, either you installed some bad apps or maybe some infected pirated apps.

My sister an iPhone user with no tech background, she just switched to the G2 and likes it.
The flicker issue was fixed in an update. Every phone company has issues with their devices. Apple had some updates where battery life sucked for example and it took them a while to update. You cant blame LG for your TWRP brick (I used it and had no problem), thats a risk you knowingly took, it applies to Apple or any other OEM as well.

Just because you had problems installing a custom ROM doesn't make LG or any other OEM bad, they intend you to use their device as is. You screw with it, its your fault.

Honestly I can understand your frustration but its also partly your fault, I certainly hope you enjoy whichever new device you get.

Ewww don't mention iPhone's here, you sick sick man. But seriously I have never had a problem with mine and it is by far the best phone I have ever had, and I have had many. I also managed to get my friend to get rid of her iPhone due to the fact she was having many problems with it, I told her to get the G2, she is very impressed and couldn't be happier. Now all she does is mocks iPhone's, just how it should be .

Kinda funny. You must be the unluckiest G2 buyer in the world. And I had a Nexus 4 too before G2. But you just cannot compare rooting and flashing a nexus with G2. It's a completely different story. You practicaly cannot brick a nexus but you can a G2 and pretty easily if you don't know exactly what you are doing. Imho those replacement phones are probably faulty because they are .... a replacement. My G2 is running stock KK and it's a beast of a phone.

Phone G2 better than S5,HTC one, iphone 5s

OP..... I fail to understand how you cannot be happy with the G2. I have a s5, HTC one and an iphone5s. HTC and G2 was given by my employer. I bought iphone 5s.Believe me I speak from personal experience, the g2 is my favorite. I regret buying iphone 5. its worthless piece of junk even though i purchased it.

The HTC one is an ok ok phone as I dont like the ui and i thought the camera was better than the one on stock g2. Battery of htc one is outrightly bad. The only place where HTC rocks is speaker output. No one can beat it I agree.

then i was suggested to root the g2 and flash xdabbebs 2.2 version. My my, now the camera can outperform even a dslr man. Clarity,color reproduction, detail, vivid colors...I cant stop. Its absolutely stunning...After rooting my battery lasts over 2 days and the ui is stunning..... I couldnt find a better phone .....

The s5 is nothing better than a piece of junk....the phone even though has 2gb ram, has a substandard processor as against the g2's terrific snapdragon. Touchwizui is pathetic and slows the phone over a period of time as it is basically very resources eater. Sammy launched s5 in India with a degraded processor. The camera is ok ok., Doesnt come any closer to the one on g2.

Coming to sound quality, with the latest 20b indian update, hissing sound has gone, knock code fully embedded and working great, Install viper4 android and the phone will blow you away.

Summing it up, the g2 rocks above all.....I am never departing with this phone...not to forget, g2 has best android dev, in comparison to s5 and htc one, lots of mods and variety of stable roms....ohhhh the battery is muuuaaahhh.
