Not so many comments. OK I did some research on Youtube and reason is very clear. It is because of the antenna. More precisely the lack of the antenna.
Look at the inside picture of LG G2 and Samsung GS4. Ther is nothing between the contacts. Well would it be so expensive?
Anyway I will to fix it later. Firstly I need the appropriate tools for opening the back cover without any damage. You too can find few videos how to disassemble the phone.
I suggest to watch this in any case although the quality is not HD.
If anyone did this mod don't hesitate to share the result.
Warning! If you don't have enough experience in repairing electric devices do not try to do it alone.
[/COLOR]Guys, did you check out this video:
Looking at the video and obladi64's picture of the internal of the G2, they look very similar. I have reason to believe that the Nexus 5 solution would also solve the problem with the LG G2 as well and might explain why some people are okay while others are not as it is probably assembly related.
I guess for those that dare to void their warranty and give this approach a try, it looks very promising.
Also, check out the Nexus 5 GPS issue forum as well, it seemed there are more than 1 success story.
Chinyuk, you are right, it is not so easy as it looks like on the video and nobody do not try it without enough experience.
But. I have bad news. Despite the difficulty there is no any other way to fix the problem. Nexus is not G2 although both are from LG. There is no antenna at all on the backside of the cover. See the picture. Same as HTC. Only the big stink mothing. See attached photo.
So if everything goes as planed may be I'll try to solder antenna there on Sunday.
