    I am waiting for Google to release the next Nexus based on the G2. The hardware looks great although I will leave judgement of the back button layout till I use it but everything else regarding the hardware in the presentation sounds great.

    As some others have said, the screen is about as edge to edge as I have seen in a smartphone to date but with LG’s skin, just seems like a rip-off of what Samsung has done with the S4, for the most part anyway.

    They need to do something like Motorola, minimize the skin and enhance the stock experience with a few software features instead of creating this hodgepodge of software options that won’t get used half the time, mimicking Samsung.
