    Just waiting for a camera review. I don’t expect it to beat the GS6 or the G4 but I expect it to get close enough. Hoping anyway. Honestly, that’s the main reason I’m looking to upgrade my G2. I want to have manual camera controls. It’s really hard to justify replacing the G2. The battery life and camera are probably better than most phones on the market, the screen is 5.2″ 1080p, it has IR blaster, almost no bezels, a lot of XDA development.. I just want to upgrade the camera to a G4 level really..

          You just don’t understand that fps for video recording doesn’t matter for everyone.

          Price has absolutely nothing to do with the camera.

        Well, so far the samples are not promising.. Too much noise. Then again, I’ll wait for an in depth review as few samples are not enough to make a judgement.

      Buy a dslr and keep the g2, it’s a little masterpiece even today 😀

        Yep, and with root you can actually record 4K at 30fps on the G2.
