As expected, the LG’s flagship G2 has finally made its way to both WIND Mobile and Videotron’s 4G network today.

Videotron has the G2 priced as low as $149.95 on a ‘reduced price’ with a $69.95/plan on a 2-year, or $599.95 outright. WIND’s pricing is set at $349 with a $40/month plan and upward to $629 outright.

The G2 has a unique design with back control buttons, plus a 5.2-inch full HD IPS display (1080 x 1920 resolution, 423 ppi), 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB internal memory, 2GB RAM, 13MP rear camera, 2.1MP front-facing camera, 3,000mAh battery and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

    Wait for the Nexus 5.

    Edit: it seems to be based on the LG G2. It will likely cost much less, will come unlocked and will get OS updates first. I can’t think of a single reason to buy the G2 in the face of that.

    • Yulet

      Which will have inferior battery life. No, thanks. I’d rather buy a Samsung with bloatware.

    • Sean-Paul

      strangely enough, the G2 actually has the best battery life on the market as of right now. So your fact is null and void. Do some research first.

    • chris

      I think he was talking about the Nexus 5, which indeed looks like it won’t have a great battery…

    • jroc

      Trollin’ ain’t easy

    • Sean-Paul

      wish they would at least do their research so i could have an intelligent argument..but then i thought about it and i realize..im stupid to think id have an intelligent argument with them.

    • Yulet

      Nexus 5 will not have a 3000mAh battery like the LG G2, it will have a 2300mAh one + vanilla android is less optimized than bloated phones. 😉 Do your research again and come back.

    • Sean-Paul

      wait…. wait… vanilla android is less optimized?

      i think you should really do your research before you open your mouth about things.

      vanilla android, will not have any bloat ware from the manufacturer and also the carriers. so that right there already 1. takes less space on the RAM and 2. is not battery intensive as bloat ware ROMs.

      please dont talk anymore. your knowledge only shows you do not know what the hell you are talking about.

      come back again when you know stuff.

    • Yulet

      Go look at battery life tests and compare other phones that has the same size batteries with Nexus 4. It SHOULD be like you said, but it’s not. Look at real life situations not theories. 😉

    • Sean-Paul

      who is talking about the Nexus 4?

      This article is about the Nexus 5 and the LG G2.

      The Nexus 4 sucked. I refused that phone because of the battery and also because of the non native LTE.

      if you are talking about the Nexus 4… then go post it on that article.

      we are not talking about the Nexus 4 here.

    • Yulet

      Nexus 4 has 2100mAh and 5 will have 2300mAh whereas the G2 has 3000mAh one. 200mah extra battery size will not be enough and it may be Even worse than the Nexus 4’s battery life since Nexus 5 will have a 1080p screen.

    • Sean-Paul

      if I had it my way….I’d love to get the G2 with stock Jelly Bean/Kit Kat.

      the battery life of the G2 with the stock ROM from Google.

      that would probably be the best combo

  • Yulet

    WIND’s 4G network? WTH? That’s 3G, 4G is LTE.

    • anti robellus

      4G is more like HSPA.

    • Yulet

      I see that Canadian cellphone providers are very good liars, they even made the anti robellus guy believe that HSPA is 4G.
      HSPA+, HSPA are 3G and LTE is 4G.

    • AlphaEdge

      Unfortunately the whole market, including the US market started the confusion, before LTE was rolled out. Just have to keep in mind, that if LTE is not mentioned, and they say 4G, it’s 3G+ that they are talking about.

    • anti robellus

      LTE is SUPPOSED to be 4G, but in reality it’s not in Canada. It’s just a way to screw with the customers.

    • Yulet

      And that’s exactly what I meant lol

    • anti robellus

      I meant to say that they didn’t make me “believe” it. I work for a TELCO so I know how all this crap works.

    • anti robellus


    • chris

      WIND is HSPA+, which is 4G. Although technically, if you look at the requirements for 4G, LTE doesn’t even qualify.

    • Alex McIlwaine

      It’s closer to 3.5G

    • Alex McIlwaine

      Article maybe changed but it doesn’t seem to say 4G in relation to WIND

      That said I do still chuckle when my phone, on WIND, occasionally bounces between 3G and 4G depending on how good the signal is. Even the devices lie.

  • Harold Mitchell

    Another device with a ‘premium’ cost at wind and their limited network.

    • jroc

      Would you rather they didn’t offer any flagship phones?

  • FunkyMonkey

    The more flagships the merrier.
    I was actually delighted to learn that WIND got another flagship, and it got it recently and not a year later.

    I still won’t be buying it because of WIND tending to forget about their products too soon (LG Optimus 2x, anyone?)

    Waiting for Nexus 5
