I take their word for it that it was captured (by a couple of) G2s. Like the creativity. Like the device. Hope they will Nexus it!

misleading title, anyone who knows much about space would know this. That is NOT space. its just end of couple layers of atmosphere. it 50km?space starts after 10s of thousands of km. these companies... feedings off noobs.

Hopefully that G2 flying in the space will pick up some UFO with "non-human hands" that those back buttons find convenient and egonomic to use!

Superb. LG with G2 has come very strongly but they should release it worldwide with proper price tags. Learn from Samsung.

If anything they don't need any lessons. Samsung needs to be taught by LG. LG has useful features, something Samsung doesn't know much about. All these random G2 articles have no real information. Last article said tipped by anonymous that it'd be out sep 12. I feel doubtful even though it makes all the sense in the world. Get out of space and into my hands, no one wants it in space. The best phone of 2013 needs to be on verizon in a couple weeks or I will be sad panda

I hope that the video is not added with more image stabilization during editing because it really is amazing! What if tough phones were places up there like the Z, Z Ultra, and the S4 Active. Will they survive?

OIS doesnt do crap when the camera is flying in the sky shooting moving objects.
