LG G2 hands-on (video)


There’s no denying that LG has done a great job with the G2. The phone comes with an impressive array of specifications and a few unique design choices which are a bit out of the ordinary. The jury’s still out on whether the LG G2 will be a big hit with consumers, but it you can’t deny that LG is trying something different to garner some extra attention.

For a closer look at the LG G2, take a look at our hands-on video from yesterday’s press event in New York City (sorry for the delay, YouTube was acting up for us) and don’t forget to leave us a comment below to let us know what your thoughts are on LG’s latest flagship device.

    Ill say I’m a fan of buttons on the bottom over software ones.

    I could switch to software but why when the bottom bezel takes up enough space to fit them anyway?

    Get rid of the bottom bezel and I could live with software buttons…

    Just my opinion.

      Because when watching or browsing, the buttons can be hidden and you get the extra screen space. and the buttons can be changed to fit your needs and is customizable. I like having options. :)

    I don’t mind the buttons,I’d get use to them after two days. as long as they don’t press every time you place the device down.

    It can’t be any harder than going from a HTC to a Samsung, hitting the Power button every time you want to adjust the volume lol.

    The hardware is very very eye catching. As I’ve never used LG flavoured android I can’t comment, but as no skin last more than a month with me, that wouldn’t matter as long CM give good support.

    I like what LG is doing! Whether they hit a home run or strike out with their new ideas, you can’t argue that they’re not swinging for that homer! Good job, LG!!

    Am I the only one who sees “(video)” in a title and think of it as a warning?

    Seriously, I can read just fine, thank you. I prefer to use a good minute of reading rather than one or two handfuls of minutes watching some mediocre-at-best attempt at doing television.

    No bashing at androidandme in particular, it’s just an increasing annoyance that everyone and everything (Google et al) seem to agree that the world can’t read anymore – we’d much rather prefer crappy videos.

      It’s not the best video on the planet, but I personally enjoy videos, especially of new devices. How else are we supposed to SEE how it really looks and operates? Someone can give me their personal opinion about something, but then I have to rely on their judgment rather than making up my own mind about a device.

    Is that Aaron from PhoneDog?? Always loved his presentation skills….Welcome to Android and Me Aaron!!!

    this is definitely going to be a problem for the competitor

  • Pravas

    Its nice to have more options. Bring it on LG.

  • donger

    Life’s good eh?

    I really like what they’ve done with the G2 and it clearly shows that they are in-it to win-it. I also love the new design of the battery and the fact that it’s 3000mAh. LG is slowly moving up in the world of Tech.

  • bjssp

    Is there really a lot of difference between something with 2.3ghz and 2GB of RAM and something with 2.3ghz and 3GB of RAM? I get one is obviously bigger, and thus a little faster, and that this doesn’t factor in cores, but for someone who wants something more powerful than an iPhone 5 and a larger screen, yet doesn’t do a lot besides read things and listen to music, am I going to feel left in the dust?

    I kind of like the idea of the Note 3, except I’m not all that crazy about Samsung’s designs.

  • Pepe

    I really do like the G2. Give me a Google version or a vanilla android ROM and I’m all set.

    But I don’t get that knock on feature… Let’s say I’m using Chrome, doing a double tap to adjust the zoom and the text. Same thing goes for maps…. Will the double tap to zoom work or will it turn off the display instead?!
