After I got my G2 I went back to the Verizon store and compared signal strength with a Moto X and both phones were pretty much the same. I don't know that that was a fair comparison since that was a really good location for signal. I wake up at 5 am and work until 3:30. Usually by the time I get off my battery is 20% to 30% without heavy use. This is better than my past phones, but not as good as most people get.
