The main issue I've been getting that isn't being fixed by them is nobody can hear ever me properly as it's always muffled on their end although I can hear them perfectly.

The G2's would always be custom version from CM or AOKP etc, (which isn't necessarily a bad thing for most).
Anyway, all this made me appreciate the N5 even more. (The white one
