LG G2: LG’s Best Smartphone to Date

The LG G2 is an embodiment of cutting-edge hardware and intuitive software. Its 5.2-inch Full HD IPS display offers superior visual experience with its true-to-nature colors, sharp text, high-definition details, and cinema-like 16:9 aspect ratio. The 423 ppi pixel density behind Corning Gorilla Glass 3, shows off every detail, so you’ll get an authentic view of whatever you’re looking at.

The LG G2 runs on a Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 chipset and a 2.26 GHz Quad-Core processor with 2GB RAM. Making the G2 easily run multiple processes at once, delivering up to 50% increase in graphics performance and faster processor speed.

The 13MP camera stands out with its OIS (Optical Image Stabilization) technology, which stabilizes your focus while holding the camera to produce less blur in photos and less shaking in videos.

Its long-lasting battery is a major plus. Especially since its silicon anode enables maximum storage capacity and efficiency in a super-slim size unlike the usual Li-ion batteries.

The Knockon feature allows you to wake your phone’s display by a simple knocking gesture. All you have to do is knock on the G2 twice to turn it on from sleep mode. Also works to turn the G2 off.

The volume and power buttons are strategically placed at the back of the phone where your index fingers will be when holding the G2. The Audio Zoom is another cool feature, allowing you to zero in on a specific audio source by zooming in on your subject while recording videos. This feature uses three mikes, which amplify sound from the specified angle and deemphasize the surrounding noise.

The Dual Recording/Dual Camera feature uses picture-in-picture technology, which allows you to activate the front and rear cameras simultaneously, so you can put your face in any photo or video you’re shooting.
