LG launched its LG G2 to compete with other high end smartphones such as Galaxy S4 and the HTC One on the market. It hopes that the LG G2 can hold its own against the other high end phones on the market and make some serious inroads in it.
Armed with Qualcomm quad core Snapdragon 800 chipset and having a processor speed of 2.26GHz, the quad core LG G2 provides seamless transitioning between the apps and also helps in juggling multiple apps simultaneously.
The display provided on this phone is also a match to most of the smartphones available on the market. It has screen size of 5.2 inch full HD display which provides a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (423 ppi). The LG G2 is supported with 2GB RAM and has an option of an internal storage of either 16GB or 32GB. The LG G2 is powered by Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2
The LG G2 has a primary camera of 13MP and has optical image stabilizer feature along with it. LG claims the image stabilization technique gives less blurry images and also helps in providing better low light photography. The multi point auto focus feature helps in avoiding photo bombs occurring in your picture and helps in capturing the perfect shot. The LG G2 is supported with 2.1 MP secondary camera which helps in better clarity while teleconferencing. Another smart feature provided is activation of the front and the back camera simultaneously, this gives the person clicking the picture an opportunity not to miss out on the captured memories. Zoom to track feature provided gives the option to magnify a particular portion of the recorded video to get a more detailed view and more information on that selected portion.
The battery used in the LG G2 is different from the traditional Li-Ion battery, it uses a 3000mAh SiO+ which is said to provide a longer lasting battery life as compared to the traditionally used batteries.
- Guest Mode – It gives the primary user more control over the privacy of its phone. The guest mode feature empowers the user by setting a more than one home screen and the option of setting an alternate pattern lock for each individual home screen, so the guest user therefore cannot change the arrangement you prefer on your home screen.
- Knock-Knock – It is a cosmetic feature added to highlight the phone, the feature is used to activate the smartphone off the sleep mode and can be done by just double tapping the phone, this feature can come in handy when your hands are otherwise engaged.
- Capture Plus – Gives more control on the alignment of the phone. This comes in use when there is an elongated web page and has to viewed at in full so the capture plus compresses it within the size of the screen and user can then align it to the degree it feels most comfortable on.
Besides these features, the major design difference on the smartphone is the placement of the volume control and power buttons which are placed beneath the camera giving it a more easy access on the larger phones which is what is claimed by the manufacturers at LG.
