I'm facing a strange conundrum when it comes to wanting this device. As-is, if the mobile phone world froze in its tracks today and stayed there, I think I'd feel great buying the G2. Once in a while I still wonder if I'd rather have the HTC One, but the larger screen and battery of the G2 keep winning out. My concern with the G2 is not about where it stands today. I'm concerned about going back to LG, and a heavily skinned phone, in terms of updates. I have had the WORST luck in the world when it comes to always owning the devices that run into trouble with getting updates. The LG Ally was my first Android phone, I recall getting updates much later than other phones, and after a certain age, LG just stopped supporting it. Then I upgraded to the Droid Bionic which had one of the worst update debacles in phone history. I never really thought I'd go back to LG. Not that I hated my experience with them, I also had an LG Dare prior to the Ally, and an Env2, they just hadn't been doing anything to catch my attention these past few years, and then the G2 came along. I am so concerned that this will be the type of phone I'll be thrilled with at first, and then little by little, it'll never see 4.3, then next month we'll start hearing about KitKat 4.4 and it'll take forever to get that, etc. I would really like to break my trend of always having the worst supported phone. I'd be upgrading at full retail price by the way. Really don't want to spend 600 and end up getting 4.4 on this device next August. How confident are people feeling about how LG will support this flagship? Yeah I'm on Verizon too which could lead to even longer delays in getting updates if and when they come out since VZW is so picky... I want this phone. I keep thinking about it. I wanted to order sometime this week. But something keeps telling me this is gonna be a bad phone for timely updates. I'm not saying it has to get 4.4 the minute it gets released, I understand that's what Nexus devices are for and that skinned devices need some time, but I do not want to have another device that falls 8 months behind everyone else.
