With this flagship model, LG tries to bridge the gap with brands like Samsung and HTC in terms of popularity and smartphone ownership. LG has played around with basic habits of smartphone operations and changed its design in a big way and moved the power and volume controls to the back of the phone, which we feel is a bold decision.In first glance, it looks like a clone of Galaxy S4. It has now a big body with lots of plastic, shaped like Galaxy.

Just like LG’s previous smartphones, the G2 sports a sleek, glossy plastic design, and its front is clean and minimalistic with no visible buttons. The standard Android back, home and recent apps buttons only appear on the display after unlocking the device. The G2’s side bezels are extremely thin, nearly giving the illusion that it’s sporting an edge-to-edge glass design. Measuring 5.45 x 2.79 x 0.35 inches which is thinner than HTC One but thicker than S4, the G2 has a 5.2-inch screen with 1920 x 1080p display and comes with a double-tap gesture to activate the phone. LG removed the physical home button on the front for the G2. Instead, virtual buttons for back, home and menu actions appear when the screen is activated.

LG G2 runs on Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and is loaded with lots of features such as QSlide and Slide aside (which lets you open multiple apps on the home screen in separate windows), Quit Remote (LG G2 comes with an IR blaster for controlling your television, stereo speakers, Blu-ray player and other electronic devices), Answer Me (simply raise the phone to your ear while it’s ringing and you’ll automatically answer the incoming call), Text Link (if you receive an address or invitation via text, you can look up directions via Google Maps, book it in your calendar, save it to your memos, or research it online instantly), Guest Mode (you can set a separate unlock pattern for your G2 that takes the user to a different interface that only includes apps you’ve pre-selected for that user).

The LG G2 is the first smartphone to feature Qualcomm’s quad-core 2.26-GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, which makes it a great multitasking machine. The LG G2’s 13-megapixel camera took colorful, detailed photos during our tests, with output much better than HTC One. Its Optical Image Stabilization which automatically reduces the amount of blur from shaky hands when recording video works really well.


The G2 also comes packed with a slew of useful camera features that cater to various shooting conditions such as Panorama, Burst Mode, Beauty Shot, Night and Time Catch Shot among others. The battery life is impressive too as the LG G2 gives more than 8 hours of battery life while using features such as web surfing,video camera and audio play back functions.

The G2 gave a score of 19800 on Quadrant while the AnTuTu testing score was 35376. The phone gave a score of 2931 on Vellamo.
