While manufacturers such as Samsung, Apple, and HTC get the most attention when releasing a new phone, there are a number of big brands releasing fantastic handsets which deserve to be noticed but all too often are not. One such manufacturer is LG who have officially announced their new G2 handset, the follow-up to the excellent Optimus G.
As with many flagship devices these days the G2 has a large, high-resolution screen. The 5.2-inch 1080 IPS display is a little larger than that of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and takes up almost the entire face of the phone. As you’d expect from a flagship phone the G2 has a powerful processor, the 2.26Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 800 and with 2GB of RAM for it to work with the G2 can easily compete with the fastest handsets on the market.
The rear camera is 13-megapixel, more than good enough to take some high quality photographs, while the 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera is great for making video calls or checking your hair is still looking good while you wait for the bus. Inside there’s a 3,000mAh battery and you get all the usual connectivity such as Bluetooth and Wi-Fi. Out of the box the G2 runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.
The LG G2 looks like a fantastic phone, although unless we see some really great G2 deals theSamsung Galaxy S4 still looks like it could be the more popular option for many users. The G2 will be available within the next couple of months and with all the major US carriers jumping on board expect a similar level of support from networks here in the UK.
