0. phoneArena 08 Jul 2013, 02:01 posted on

Just in case we didn't have enough LG Optimus G2 leaks already, here's another set of images that surfaced on the web earlier via Seeko – a Korean gadget-dedicated forum. Once again we are given a glimpse at the smartphone's front, where a screen of over 5 inches resides, as well as at its back side, where the volume buttons have been placed right under the camera module...

What happened to the lovely crystal reflection back of the first one?

For the sake of the removable back. I really digged the crystal reflection design myself, but I really like the idea of a removable battery too.

Not to mention the 'cracking due to heat difference issues'. But still that was one of a kind back. Never seen anyhing that was so different and uniques, since the the iPhone 4.

I hope LG have made sure the buttons on the back aren't impractical. Because that's how they look to me.

I like that they're putting it in a neutral area. It doesn't look hard to reach at all if you hold it upright. Since I'm left handed I usually have to deal with configurations that have right-handers in mind.

The only potential problem that I can see is if that + and - button will be used for the camera zooming in landscape. Now thats gonna be awkward!

At first I liked the idea, since it makes sense for ambidextrous volume up/down during a phone call. Then I thought...what about the rest of my phone usage, when I'm staring down at the phone face up on a desk? I would have no access to the rockers.

Why buttons? Just make the whole back plate touch sensitive and have gesture and pressure sensors replace all the existing buttons on the device.

Patents that have been filed show that this idea has been floating around. It's even been posted here on PhoneArena, but a lot of people criticized it for 'copying' the PS Vita.
