I don't take it that way. All is good.
But if you're waiting for a perfect device, than keep waiting.
As you said, the brightness is very important to you. But not everyone shares that requirement. Design is a lesson in compromise.
The point is that among top phones today, LG G2 display is the latest and it fails to impress. Finishing 2nd or 3rd place while being the new kid on the block is unimpressive, no?
No, I don't think it's that unimpressive. And that's where we disagree. The G2 might just have one of the best cameras and battery life on a Android phone. It also has some of the fastest internals. And in that article that you linked to, it basically gave all the flagship screens a tie, indicating that some excelled in one area, and lagged in another. But nowhere did it indicate what the screen was unacceptable in any area. Most reviews have been fairly impressed by the screen.
Just because the one metric to you is important doesn't mean the screen is suddenly lackluster. Perhaps more people find it important to have the higher PPI for reading?
No device, even the iPhone, had the best of everything when it came out. I understand you may be frustrated, but take a step back and look at it objectively.
I love myself a good car analogy. Take a sports car that has the fastest 0-60 time, fastest 1/4 mile, best braking, best lap time, and yet has a 3rd place lateral g measurement. Does that make it not a great sports car? All of a sudden is it "unimpressive", especially if it out handles 99% of the other cars out there on the road (even if your not in the market for those other cars)?
Now expand that to the LG G2. It appears to have one of the best cameras out there, at least in Android and Apple land. Battery life tests pretty much blow the competition out of the water. Hardware wise is probably the fastest thing out there. Display size/Package size ratio is unequaled. And it's display quality is maybe 2nd or 3rd best out of flagship phones (and 99% better than most every other phone out there).
Now tell me that unimpressive.
