Two new colors for the LG G2 officially announced by LG: Red and Gold
LG introduced the limited edition colors to celebrate the Chinese New Year holiday, which begins in two weeks. The red and gold colored LG G2 models do sport a different back than the one on the standard models. The red and gold units have a textured back cover, which makes it easier to maintain a grip on the phone and also helps keep fingerprints from accumulating.
In Singapore, the new red and gold models will cost $898 SGD and will be available starting January 18th from local telecom operators Starhub, SingTel and M1. While the Chinese New Year is not recognized as an official holiday in the states, perhaps LG will still make these colors available in the U.S.
The LG G2 has two new limited edition colors, gold and red

I'll take none. Very capable phone, but when I saw it live I was disappointed by the fact that it looked so cheap and ordinary that it made the Galaxy S4 look like premium by comparison. And of course miles away by any iPhone, Xperia Z1 or Lumia.
I don't know what happened to LG. Some older designs were much more taken care of. Is this the same brand that made the Prada phone, or the Chocolat?

Probably nobody, but the fact that you attacked his opinion so viciously suggests that you might...

Hahaha, being objective doesn't mean I work for some other company. The G2 looks common and plasticky, it's a fact, nothing to do with bias. Considering that I (and so many others) criticize Samsung heavily for this, I am surprised that LG gets away with it sporting even worse design. Andif you noticed I actually praised LG... for their past designs.

@Feanor I think Samsung gets criticized so much more because they are the big dog and everyone jocks Samsung. LG however is just recently starting to make worthwhile phones, plasticky or not.

No, it's an opinion. All comments regarding "looks" are opinion.

I own and love my G2, but the UI and the build materials could use some work. The OG felt more premium, and your flagships should progress, not regress.

Ordinary? Sure, by today's standards. Cheap? That's ridiculous. Not everyone is smitten by glass and aluminum.

The only issue I had with the phone was that it was creaky with little presute.

This gold thing is getting so old. Apple starts it and everyone tries to copy Apple. It's ridiculous. It makes them look desperate.
With that being said, LG G2 is one of the best phones out at the moment especially if you consider the price. I don't know how it may look "cheap" to anyone.

Being capable as a phone doesn't mean is beautiful...
I agree though about the golden colour. Apple does something, everyone has to jumb to the same wagon. And in the end such actions give merit to Apple complaints that everyone copies them. Well, sad bat true.

I don't mind the placement of the buttons on the back, but I don't like the design of it.

This more like beige but the one on iphone looks better because of the aluminum that it's on plastic not really,....

Despite the ugly colours (just go with black), that is so cheap. I bought my butterfly for 22,900..although i did buy it the day it came out.

what's the color of your butterfly?btw, had you had an issue that the camera flash was flashing green instead of white?
19. darkskoliro (Posts: 995; Member since: 07 May 2012)
