This Mamma Loves the Sprint LG G2 – Review

Sprint LG G2 Review

Testing the Spring LG G2

Testing the Sprint LG G2

Life is Good, and it just got better if you’re an Android fan.  Our friends at Sprint let the Mushy Mamma, that’s me  :) test out the LG G2 (full price 549.99), and I have to admit, I really don’t want to give it back.

Now I’m not a Android geek, but I currently use a Samsung Galaxy SIII and love it.

The LG G2 is thin, light, fast, and has a thin bezel which means it’s almost all screen (5.2 inches).

It took me a moment to get used to the power/standby and volume buttons which are on the back of the phone instead of the top or side, but other than that using it is a breeze.

The phone features some cool voice activation features including voice commands that allow you to take photos hands free.  Want to take a selfie? (I am not into selfies but they are quite popular) Just say “cheese!” and the phone snaps a picture.

The battery is amazing.  I don’t even remember having to charge it. It keeps going, and I haven’t had a battery is dying moment yet.

The screen is nice and bright. The LG G2 takes stunning 1080p video and boasts a 13-megapixel camera so you won’t miss any special moments.

I have to admit, my husband and I have been fighting over this phone.  He’s a video geek and has been going crazy shooting videos with it.  He even connected it to a tripod and a microphone up to it to show people how easy it is to make a good mobile video with an Android phone.

The phone also comes with an built in editing app that works pretty well.  It allows you to edit a sequence together and add some basic titles without much hassle at all.

The LG G2 is a beast, but don’t take my word for it.

Great review! Though I love my iPhone, my brother-in-law has a droid, and it takes the BEST pictures. My mind could potentially be swayed.

Love the big screen on the phone and light is always better to me. Don't like carrying around heavy gadgets. My husbands contract is up for renewal soon will definitely have him take a look at this phone.

I love the voice activation for the camera. That would be amazing! I also like that the screen encompasses most of the front!

Ummmm.. hand it over! LOL! It like the size of the screen. I just came from an EVO 3D to a Samsung 3. I am a very happy camper. Just not at that monthly bill though! #honest

I love my new Galaxy S4 but I saw a commercial for this one and had phone envy. II think I'd like the back buttons. I need to see it in store.

My huz is still using a flip phone. Maybe it's time he finally give it up and bring himself up to date with technology with this phone. hahaha

I'm testing this phone right now also. I'm not big on the back keys. I'm just not used to them but I love the tap feature.

The quality of graphics on the phone looks amazing! The quality of photos and videos on my current phone just isn't up to par, so I would like to try out the LG G2 once my contract is up. Thanks for sharing your experiences so my decision will be easier when the time rolls around for me to get a new phone! :)

My husband has the lg g2 phone and loves it. It really does take the best pictures of any phone I've ever tried. I hope you are able to wrestle it away from your husband ;)

I love my android I just bought the 3 but I have had my poor razor for years before I upgraded and I needed an upgrade. My hubs is a tech freak though so he would love this.

I like the "cheese" feature. Not that I take too many selfies but that would make it so much easier!

It looks like it would be a GREAT phone. I will have to keep it in mind if I ever decide to have a mobile phone again. Thanks for sharing the video!
