Here comes the LG G2 review, showcasing the latest flagship phone from LG. With the rise of many high end phones in the market, there are only a few who could make it to the top end of the competition and one of these is LG G2. In this LG G2 review, I will tell you the pros and cons of this device and some of the features it has to offer.
LG G2 Review: Design
Sleek and thin, it measures 5.45 x 2.79 x 0.35 inches. Considering the size, it may be hard for people with a small grip to handle the device comfortably in the palm of their hands. Another disadvantage of using this phone is that its case is fingerprint and dirt prone. This may require you to do occasional cleaning using a dry cloth or a soft microfiber. The phone is thin and feels solid, but the battery is non-removable so, there is no back cover. Aside from that, it also has no micro SD card slot and the only available internal memory is 16 GB and 32 GB.
Software and User interface
In this LG G2 review, you will be informed that the device currently runs Android version 4.2.2. It has many preinstalled apps such as Google services including Google Maps, Gmail, Hangouts, Playstore and third party apps like YouTube.
Some of the unique features on this device include Quick Remote. It uses an infrared blaster located on top of the phone and it allows you to turn it into a remote control that is compatible with many types of entertainment systems such as televisions, projectors and DVD players.
Another one is QSlide which allows you to multitask by overlaying preinstalled apps within the screen display such as browser, video and calculator.
There are new features mentioned in this LG G2 review and the first one is called Slide Aside. It functions similarly when you hold down the home button where you can choose three apps that you use most often. You can open them instantly or hide them in the background running apps.
Another new app is Clip Tray which allows you to easily save loads of text that you can use later such as putting an address or contact information into your email or text.
Knock On is also a new feature mentioned in this LG G2 review. This feature works by detecting your touch when tapping twice on the screen even if it is on a resting or standby mode.
Answer Me function will let the phone automatically answer your call by simply holding it in front of your face.
Guest Mode is another useful feature which is activated when someone tries to use your phone, but couldn’t provide the correct password. As a response, it will open only a limited list of apps and the sensitive settings and files will be hidden from the phone user.
The last is Voice Mate which is similar to Google Now’s speech function. It lets you operate some phone services using your voice. However, it is sometimes unresponsive.
It has a 13 mega pixel camera and the image quality is acceptable, pictures taken were clear and highly detailed. There is also a new feature and it’s called audio zooming which allows you to place more emphasis on certain sounds when recording. Another new feature in the camera is tracking zoom which allows you to zoom in a specific object while recording a video.
Processor and Data speed
It uses a 2.26 GHz Quad core Krait 400 processor, Adreno 330 GPU and powered by Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800 Chipset. It scored 19050 on the Quadrant benchmark test which is very high indeed and the overall performance is blazing fast.
It supports 2G,3G and 4G network coverage and the maximum data speed when surfing online is 3G HSPA+ 42 Mbps and 4G LTE 150 Mbps.
The last feature that will be discussed in this LG G2 review is the battery. The battery capacity is 3000 mAh. Its continuous talk time is already good enough for users. It lasts for up to 23 hours
