"Doesn't have a weakness"

Display: What can be said at 1080p. With it's IPS LCD3 screen it's only real competition is the HTC One. It looks beautiful especially since i am coming from an iPhone 4S. I love the grey / light blue scheme of the notification drop down. Every color looks bright and easy on the eyes.
Call Quality: I have only called someone once so far and it was like any other phone i guess. It didn't blow my mind or anything but it didn't sound awful. I would call it average. Not knowing what good sound quality sounds like.
User Interface: It's like touchwiz but less terrible. It has a better natural feel and you don't feel like it's trying to suffocate you with features you don't need. I wish the menus were gray and light blue, would look much better than white. I can ignore that though for how amazing this phone is. I hate on touch wiz all the time and this interface is not too different. It's just made better and has less more useful features VS. too many useless features.
Camera: The camera is gorgeous and not a thing wrong with it. It looks much better than the iPhones and everyone seems to think that apple has the best camera. Well they are wrong, since nokia has an over powered 41mp camera this is the next best thing. It's incredibly clear and sharp.
Design: Ok so many people harp on them for using plastic which makes no sense seeing as samsung has used an ugly plastic design for years. LG atleast makes their plastic look good and not cheap. It feels really great in the hand also. It might attract fingerprints but it's not that noticeable to me. What verizon did with their power button and camera ring is questionable. While i think it makes it look fancy i also think the buttons are hard to find. That said i almost NEVER use the back buttons due to knock on feature. This feature is in all honest great, but it has the tendency to work when it wants to sometimes. You can tap 4 times or 2 depending on how the phones feeling. That also doesn't bother me too much.
Battery Life: I could go on and on about this. I have to TRY to kill this battery. I play a game for about 2hrs and that brings it down to 89%. That same day i stream music for 2hrs to and from work on 4GLTE and Bluetooth. That brings it down to 80%. I am always checking facebook and browsing the web here and there. At 50% on day 2 i pretty much do the same routine. This phone has the best battery i've seen to date. 3000 should be the standard battery size nowadays. It really is something!
Apps: It's android so i don't really get the rating on that. It's better than apples app store in my opinion. Has everything they have minus the useless apps that get up rated by bots.
All around: I can say i am 100% satisfied with this phone. It has some small quirks like any phone does but because it's so well made and put together i really can't negate anything. The small things don't bother me enough to return the phone. The screen size is amazing coming from a 3.7 or 4 inch phone. The camera and battery are everything i heard they'd be. LG is not getting enough credit for this phone much like HTC for their HTC One. Oh and i forgot to mention the speakers. The sound is also great even though people seem to be knocking them. Lets face it, just because they don't have front facing speakers doesn't mean they suck. That's everyones attitude right now. The positive is the loudness. HTC and their front facing speakers are certainly louder than the G2's bottom speaker. That said i have no problem even still. They sound good! A little lack of bass but still great as i have listened to streamed EDM music many times while not connected to my car radio. This phones only real competition is the HTC One which i considered getting a lot. I heard the battery wasn't amazing on the One and that got me worried. Yes it is metal and yes it has front speakers, but that wasn't everything to me. I also think Sense 5 is the most beautiful UI out there. That said, i kind of got over it! I waited so long and got used to it being out that i didn't want it any more. I wanted the latest and greatest. That's what this phone is. Build quality does not matter and is something that is only a plus. It is a bonus, and to me plastic is fine. Doesn't matter if your phone is plastic or metal, it will scratch and chip or even dent when it falls. Put a case on your phone people!. Don't buy cheap cases either, spend a little money. I do not think the iPhone 5, 5s, or 5c are on this phones level. LG did a great job
