Upgrading my phone. Cheap ATT phone to LG G2. Advice?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-G2-Latest...item27f252e421

Looking at upgrading my current phone. Anyone have the LG G2 linked above? Currently I use a AT&T Tribute/Fusion 3...
http://www.att.com/esupport/article....B425444&cv=820
and my backup is a Nokia Lumia 635 windows phone...
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/mobile/phone/lumia635/

Both are low end phones. I really like the Windows phone but the lack of google apps blows it for me.

I already know this blows away my cheapy phones from last Christmas but is it worth the money to upgrade?

one feature I absolutely need is the ability to put it into what I call "on call mode". In other words, when I'm on call my normal contacts will not have a ring or message tone active. That way I can only get the on call stuff and I return calls later to my personal contacts. Does the address book in this allow for something like that?

Yeah, it's called Quiet mode on the G2. You can set it to automatically turn on during certain hours and add however many contacts you want to be able to contact you at those hours.

I've been reading that these units have a common issue with a part of the touch screen becoming non functional. Also that you shouldn't upgrade to the ATT version of Lollipop. Have you seen, or anyone for that matter, issues with these?

Wow, didn't expect that. The reviews on them have been great other than the two issues I stated above. What were the issues you had?

Just checked on MotoX and it is definitely more than I am willing to pay for a phone. $200 is pretty much my limit and I won't buy a used phone.

Issues I had where if you drop the damn thing 1 inch it breaks. I have never had any phone breaking problems with any phone I have had except my g2s, I got a tiny crack in one and it killed the whole digitizer, where every other phone just keeps working etc.

Hated em, always down, always broken, always fighting them, even after repair the digitizer went out again.

Was way happier with the motorola Razr I came from, and the moto X i went too.

Really surprised to hear about it breaking so easily. Especially with Gorilla Glass.

I'll chime in as well. I have the LG G2. Never dropped but broke the screen TWICE. Very sensitive. Any torque and it breaks. poke too hard and it breaks.

Lovely phone otherwise for me. The volume and power buttons on the back took some getting used too.

No SD card expansion

I had the g2 and I had no complaints - my wife is now using the g3 and loves it.
I'm using a nexus 6

Have you looked into the Moto G
