Default G2 Bugs/Problems/Issues Thread *VIDEOS INSIDE*

so i figured starting a general thread for bugs and issues would be a better idea to consolidate everything into one thread!

I've got the Verizon G2, so it would be interesting to see if other carriers have the same issue. These are all, for the most part, software issues.

for me, its:

1.) Launcher Redraw.

video example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gpn-hZnEPqg (ending shows homescreen launcher lag too)

I've posted a video yesterday, and will be posting another today showing how after almost every app, the launcher is redrawing, and therefore causes lag if you goto switch screens after hitting home. doesn't always do it, but does for the majority of the time. it does it enough that it warranted me rooting the phone to try to fix it, so I'm going to give v6 supercharger a go soon and do the bulletproof launcher. I'm apprehensive though because we don't have recovery to make a nandroid...

2.) *solved*Lag on notification drop down on lock screen

video example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DLWUXOu68d8

did you set your wallpaper to non scrolling? if you didn't know you can do this, you can. if you goto gallery and select a custom wallpaper, at the top it gives the option of non scroll or scroll, which is awesome. however, beware.. when you do non scroll, for some weird reason your notification drop down will lag in the home screen. setting it back to scrolling wallpaper alleviates this. very weird

3.) Audio during video recording.

video example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oU6Sp5V5Hv0 (also shown is the "breathing" auto focus we all experience.)


The audio during video recording uses noise cancelling mics, which can be good as we've seen in other flagship phones. however, on the g2, they sound identical to the htc rezound from 2011. that phone had really bad wishy washy underwater sounding audio when the source was remotely loud. the g2 does the same thing sadly. other phones, such as the htc dna (shows that htc learned their lesson..) and the gs3/gs4 do not have this issue.. hell, even the galaxy nexus didn't.

I'm hoping that once we get developers on it, they'll make a modified camera that can allow for either the reduction in gain from the microphones, or to be able to cancel the noise cancellation to stop the underwater sound. on the rezound, htc somewhat fixed it with the ics update. here's hoping LG will do the same.

4.) Speaker has built in limiter/compression.

this is most annoying because i like listening to music on the speaker. sounds good but the thing is its being compressed and limited at a certain level, so you don't actually hear the best quality of the song. for example if the drums get really loud, it compresses and limits them down to your volume level, which takes away intensity of the song and just doesn't make it sound even. hoping to find a setting to turn this off...

5.) screen brightness changes with Auto brightness off depending on what's on the screen.

video example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=slwkF...ature=youtu.be

this is that content adaptive brightness crap that they forced on the phone. it changes based on more whites or more blacks on the screen, then dims and brightens accordingly. it's incredibly annoying and there's currently no way to turn it off. in titanium i found an app called content adaptive back light and then i removed it.. it still does it.

what issues are you having with it?

I'm gonna post the video when i get home from work. it does it every single time I have non scrolling on the stock launcher, and once I switch to scrolling, it's smooth again. remember, this is on the lockscreen.

1. There is a headphone CPU noise issue when charging. See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448854

2. Transparency for status bar/soft buttons only seems to work for stock wallpapers.

I will remember a few more little ones in time.

I noticed that. I wonder if you could locate the stock wallpaper folder and just put your wallpapers in there. Would it work somehow..

Really? when i was playing with the verizon version. the homescreen/app drawer was still transparent with a wallpaper i had downloaded from goodfon.com. when you went to apps it went away. but kept at transparent on the ones i stated. i guess i'll find out tomorrow when my G2 arrives.

Yes this is unfortunate and unreliable. I wonder if an update can fix this. They may worried about it being too sensitve.

On another matter, my Verizon version is prone to turning on the camera or note pad when in my pocket via the rear buttons. Even prone to turning on the phone when sitting on a table off because of the sensitivity of the rear buttons. Not sure if it is just the verizon model or both.

Your pic shows status bar shaded darker. I see truly transparent on stock wallpaper. There is a slight shading on bottom soft keys, but otherwise transparent.

Another thing I see -- transparent forces soft keys to be white regardless of what you select.
