I got my g2 three weeks ago and it's the best phone I've owned. Most of these reviews were made with the international version, which some of us know is very different from the carrier version in the states. Ugly iu, ugly icons, this is andriod, everything can be changed. Busy notification tray, international model.I watched a lot of reviews and realized a lot of reviewers were saying the same things. Only after going to a Verizon store and comparing several phones, I came to the conclusion half of the reviewers didn't do their homework.So if you can't make up your mine about this phone, go to a store and compare it to the s4, nexus5, iphone5 any window phone, the G2 is an equal and beats them in most areas.
