LG G2 is one of the most powerful phones out there and while the device did earn many positive reviews, it seems that the Verizon version of the device has at least one ‘flaw’ in it. The Verizon LG G2 is pre-programmed to show the root status of the device in the about phone menu.
Yes, you guessed it right. Verizon has actually included a ‘Rooting status’ flag in their latest offering, the LG G2. It is still not confirmed if this flag will permanently show ‘rooted’ even after is a phone is unrooted or this is simply an indicator of the current state of device. Whatever the case might be, if you somehow manage to mess up your device while it was rooted, then you are pretty much screwed since the carrier clearly states in its terms and conditions that a rooted device is not eligible for claiming warranty.
The folks over at AndroidPolice were able to confirm that the ‘rooting status’ flag was absent from their AT&T review unit as well as their international LG G2. So we can undoubtedly credit Verizon for carrying out this deed.
LG G2 is features a 5.2 inch 1080p True HD-IPS + LCD screen with an astonishing 424 ppi pixel density. As far as raw power is concerned, the LG G2 is obviously a beast with its Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 processor and 2GB RAM. Other notable specs of the G2 include, 13 MP camera, LTE connectivity, 2.1 MP front camera, and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box.
Of course, considering how big the Android developer community is, it is only a matter of time when someone from XDA comes up with a possible workaround to this problem. However, this is still something to lookout for before buying a Verizon LG G2 if you are not an ‘advanced’ Android user.
