I have a G2 with me right now that we have had for a couple weeks at my job. The screen is gorgeous and it's a great size for a device with such a large screen, but the LG software isn't very nice in my opinion. The material they used on the back of the phone is really shiny and feels crappy as well. I'm not sure why Korean companies love using this high gloss plastic. I'd probably have to slap a case on it which will ruin the form factor. The UI stutters at times as well. The moto x we have is much smoother.
That said, it checks all my other boxes... big battery, nice screen, decent camera, and wireless charging.
However, I think I am going to purchase the Maxx this week. I really want a near stock experience and I love active notifications. I think the droids will get updated frequently as well since they are basically the moto x which is google's current baby. The Maxx feels great without a case on as well.
