Download the XDA app or tapatalk and set a shortcut to the G2 main screen and you'll find it way easier to get to. Welcome to hands down the best phone around IMO.
Motorola Droid ---> HTC Rezound ---> LG G2

I rooted mine the day I got it, and used Titanium Backup to uninstall pretty much anything Verizon had installed and some other apps I won't use. I found someone elses recommendation to use 2x Battery app to shut down wifi/network save for 15 minute check in's to allow app updating.

Look forward to battery life. Granted I've only had about 2 hours screen on time, but quite a lot of photo and video down and uploading, file transferring, and app installs, but I'm sitting at 62 hours 18 minutes on battery with 25% remaining right now as of typing this.

Also look forward to probably the snappiest phone you've used. I still can't believe how fast this thing is when compared to my old rooted, overclocked, and custom kernel'd Rezound. And that's still a nice phone IMO. But this thing is just amazing. I haven't had a single issue yet.

Nice. But the volume and screen lock button placement is really annoying and typing will take getting used too lol. But it is super fast. Quad core 2.3 ghz. And I forget the ram I think 2Gb

The back buttons do take getting used to, but once you do, it makes it hard to use another phone.

Is this your first phone without a physical keyboard? You can get a Bluetooth keyboard, but those are normally not very portable. Not sure if all versions include swipe (I know sprint does, not sure about others). Try out that keyboard if it's on your phone. Again, it will take a little getting used to, but you will like it better then touch typing. If your phone doesn't have it, the Android or AOSP keyboard probably has swiping built in, and it's also possible to enable it with the stock keyboard. It's better then physical keyboard once your accustomed to it.

No I have plenty of android without keyboards but something about this one is slightly different is all. Btw I just noticed something I have rooted my phone and I may not have noticed this but I don't remember seeing it before. ( phone has not been off since its update prior to rooting) but in file managers I see emulated/we card etc. I do not remember seeing emulated in the file paths. Ever in there different file managers 1 root And the others not

Your "sdcard" is basically fake but I think the emulated is more about your account and potential encryption? Not sure. I just rooted yesterday - not that phone needs it really. But the 0 1 etc thing came up last year on CM (my phone didn't have latest OS) and is normal/Android related.

Oh, and do you use Google Keyboard. I use it for all Android devices--what it might lack I gain in consistency.
