My brother knows nothing about phones, which made for a very interesting visit to the Verizon store where he walked out with an LG 2. Don't know why he chose that phone. I think the Samsung Note phones were $100 more and he did not want to spend that much. Just want to make certain he got a decent phone. He is coming off of the iPhone 4. He didn't like the smaller screen. Don't know if any of you own this phone or know anything about it.
